and Children. It contains neither Opium, Morphine nor
other Narcotic substance. It is a harmless substitute
for Paregoric, Drops, Soothing Syrups, and Castor Oil.
It is Pleasant. Its guarantee is thirty years use by
Millions of Mothers. Castoria destroys Worms and allays
feverishness. Castoria prevents vomiting Sour Curd,
cures Diarrhoea and "Wind Colic. Castoria relieves
teething troubles, cures constipation and flatulency.
Castoria assimilates the food, regulates the stomach

toria is the Children's Panacea the Mother's Friend.
'Oaatoria la an excellent medicine for chil
li others have repeatedly told me of. its
good effect upon their childrea."
Dr. G. C. Osgood,
" Castoria is the best remedy for children of
which I am acquainted. I hope the day is not
far distant when mothers will consider the real
Interest of their children, and use Castoria in
stead of the various quack nostrums which are
destroying their loved ones, by forcing opium,
morphine, soothing syrup and other hurtful
agents down their throats, thereby sending
them to premature graves."
Dk J. F. KntcHixos,
" Castoria is so well adapted to childrea that
I recommend it as superior to any prescription
known to me."
H. A. Archsr, M. D.,
lit So. Oxford St., Brooklyn, V. Y.
Our physicians in the children's depart
ment have spoken highly of their experi
ence in their outside practice with Castoria,
and although we only have among onr
medical supplies what is known as regular
products, yet we are free to confess that the
merits of Castoria has won us to look with
favor upon it."

During the early heat of a campaign an
nnprominent citizen of Terrell, taking time
by the forelock, started out with a petition
for the appoiutment.of himself as postmas

Finding "Uncle Jim" on the street Mr.

the banker's signature.
"Oh, go 'long," chaffed the old man. "I

"But, colonel," the candidate insisted,
"I'd like you to look over my list. I have

"Uncle Jim" took the paper, put on bis

"B. F. Gill, teller Jim Harris' bank."
"John Jones, auditor Jim Harris' bank."
That was too much for the old man.

Hypnotism and Mesmerism.
Hypnotism does not directly concern us
as regards its history until the time of its
invasion of western Europe a little more
than a century ago. It arrived there as
mysteriously as a cholera germ, and when
Dr. Mesmer, the Swiss enthusiast, took it
to Paris it rose into popular favor as
quickly as the Montgolfier balloons, then
the sensation of the hour in the French
capital. With this Dr. Mesmer it will be
profitable for the reader in quest of the oc
cult to become well acquainted, for the
painful fact must be recorded that although
we are a hundred years older in learning
than he was, except for a few minor points
that our scientists have cleared up for ns.
we know but little more of this mysterious
power than he taught the beauty and fash
ion of Paris who sat about the tub of
water in his room, and rod in hand received
tLe mesmesic influence.
All Paris flocked to the herr doctor's
drawing room, until in alarm the Acad
emy of Scientists our own Dr. Franklin,
of kite fame, among them drove him out
of France. But the disease remained be
hind uncured, and the fair philosophies,
w not yet diverted from amusement by the
revolution, gathered surreptitiously to per
form the experiments which we now tlif?
nify with the patronage of societies like
the "International Congress of Psvcholoci-
cal Experimentation," and other associa
