A Word of Precaution.
JUST wheroin lies the reason for the use of vegetable preparations for infants
and children ?
Why are any but vegetable preparations unsafe for infants and children ?
Why are Syrups, Cordials and Drops condemned by all Physicians and
most laymen ?
Why has the Government placed a ban on all preparations containing, among
other poisonous drugs, Opium in its .variously prepared forms and pleasing tastes,
and undef its innumerable names?
These are questions that every Mother will do well to inquire about.
Any Physician will recommend the keeping of Fletcher’s Castoria in the

Ca*tor i in our three stores for t:ie past twenty years and consider it
one of the best preparations on the market.”
Maniur Drug Cos., of St. Paul, Minn., says : “We are not in the habit
of recommending proprietary medicines, but we never hesitate to say a
good word for C istoria. It is a medical success.”
Hegeman & Cos., of New York City, N. Y., say : “We can say for your
Castoria that it is one of the best selling preparations in our stores.
That is conclusive evidence that it is satisfactory to the users.”
W. H. Chapman, of Montreal, Que., says: “I have sold Fletcher’s Cas

patent medicines having merit and unhesitatingly recommend it as a safe
