It is used by physicians with results most gratifying. The extended use of Oastoria is unquestionably the result of three facts: FirstThe indisputable evidence that it is harmless:beencity Second-That it not only allays stomach pains and quiets the nerves, but assimi- lates the food: ThirdIt is an agreeable and perfect substitute for Castor Oi L It is absolutely safe. It does not oontain any Opium , Morphine, or other narcotic and does not stupefy. It is nafike Soothing Syrups, Bateman's Drops, Godfrey's Cordial, etc. This is a good deal for a Medical Journal to say. Ou r duty, how- ever, is to expose danger and record the means of advancing health. The day for poisoning innocent children through greed or ignorance ought to end.

SEVENTH AND "NICOLLET FIRST APPORTIONMENT "Nothing succeeds like success." The business done by the Good- fellow Dry Goods Co., in the year ending Feb. 5, 1903, was double that done by R. S. Goodfellow the preceding year. March 1903 was 50 per cent larger than our March 1902. April 1903 doubled our April 190a, and May 1903 more than doubled our May 1902. New Name. With such rapidly growing business and such remarkable success, we have decided to change our name to Dayton Dry Goods Co., and will hereafter be known by that name. Co-operation. This wonderful growth of our business makes necessary more room, more goods, enlarged capital. Co-operation has made possible thfe great business organizations of to-day. Therefore we have decided to enlarge" our quarters, double our capital and offer to the people of Minnesota, the two Dakotas and Wisconsin, at par, $200,000 of our 6 per cent preferred stock.

We desire to carry out our idea of co-operation so that as many as possible may be associated with us in building up the finest retail dry goods store in the Northwest. Our business is so largely with the ladies that we take especial pleas- ure in suggesting that the men who may desire some of this stock take it in the name of wife or daughter. A certificate for one to five shares will be a very pleasant gift to give and to receive, and by the dividends, twice a year for years to come, remind the recipient of the donor's thoughtfulness. * Dividends. Dividends will be payable February 5th and August 5th each year. Payment of Principal. The Company reserves the right to call in and pay off the preferred stock any time after July 1, 1910. Interest of the Managers The $200,000 of common stock is owned by the management, in- cluding not simply the officers, but a large number of the employees of the Company. Profits can only come therefore to the managers after dividends have been paid to holders of the preferred stock. Value of Co-operation. The co-operative stores of Europe are very successful and give great satisfaction to all concerned. The day is coming when such stores will be numerous in the United States, and we are glad to in- troduce the plan in the Northwest. The plan unites the interests of customers, employes and the company, and will work for the bene- fit of all,and prove mutually pleasant and beneficial. Especially for Ladies. r This preferred stock will not appeal to speculators, but to those who desire a safe, certain and definite investment which will net the owner exactly 6 per cent per year, and the principal be preserved intact. The ladies will find a pleasure in thus investing some of their surplus funds and owning a part of the store where they can so conveniently trade, and where they can so pleasantly introduce their friends. Date. The subscription books for $50,000 of the preferred' stock will be - open from 10 a. m. of Thursday, June 4th, to 9 p. m. of Saturday, June 6th, at the office of George D.
