A study of Jan Steen's pictures of
Dutch homo life some 200 years ago
proves to conviction that in his day
the noses of his country folk were
quite as fantastic as they are now.
VTithout their pendulous, heavy,
mirth inspiring organs of smell, the
artist s tipsy fiddlers and peasants.
quack doctors and housewives would
not make one smile half as much as
thev do. It is well that the averacre
Dutchman is a good natured fellow.
No matter whether his amiability be
duo to his phlegmatic temperament
or to the reasoned discipline in his
soul, the result is the same to the
outer world. If he were naturally
disposed to be a prey to his passions,
there would bo something horribly
discordant in the broad comedy of
his face. Chambers' Journal.

Da. O. C. Osgood,
" Castoria is the best remedy for children of
which I am acquainted. I hope the day ia not
far distat-t 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,

agents down their throats, thereby sending
