Physicians Recommend Castoria
OASTOBIA has met with pronounced favor on the part of physicians, pharma-
v ^ ceutkal societies and medical authorities. 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. T o
our knowledge, Castoria is a remedy which produces composure and health, by
regulating the systemnot by stupefying itand our readers are entitled to
the information.Hall's Journal of Health.

Dr. William Belmont, of Cleveland, Ohio, says "Tour Castoria stan ds
first in Its class. In my thirty years of practice I can say I never have
found anything that so filled the place."
Dr. J H Taft, of Brooklyn, N . T., says- "I have used your Castoria
send found it s n excellent remedy in my household and private practice for,
many years. The formula is excellent."
Dr. Wm. It. Bosserman, of Buffalo, N T , says "I am pleased to speak!
a good word for your Castoria. I think BO high ly of it that I not only
recommend it to others, but have used it in my own family."
Dr R J. Hamlen, of Detroit, Mich., says. "I prescribe your Castoria!
extensively, as I have never found anything to etjual it for children's
troubles. I am aware that there are Jmitatjpns in the field, but I always
see that my patients get Fletcher's."
Dr. Tt m. I. McCann, of Omaha, Neb.rsays:T
children I certainly know something about your great medicine, and aside
from my own family experience I have in my years of practice found
Castoria a popular and efficient remedy in almost every home."
Dr. J. R. Clausen, of Philadelphia, Pa,, says: * "The name that your
Castoria has made for itself m the tens of thousands of homes blessed by
the presence of children, scarcely needs ,to be STrffplmented by tho
endorsement of the medical profession, but I, for one, most heartily endorse
it and beHev* it an 'excellent remedy '/^^ - "". ^
D r Chaaaing H Cook, of St. Lords,"* Mo ^ says:" "% have used your'
Castoria for several years past in ray own family an have always fouricTit
thoroughly efficient and never objected to by children, which is a great
consideration in view of the fact that most medicines of this character a re
obnoxious and therefore difficult of administration. A s a laxative, I
consider it the peer of anything that I ever prescribed "
Dr. R M. Ward, of Kansas City, Mo., says* "Physicians generally do
not prescribe proprietary preparations, but in the case of Castoria my
experience,'like that of many other physicians, has taught me to make an
exception. I prescribe your Castoria in my practice because I have found
it to be a thoroughly reliable remedy for children's complaints. Any
physician who has raised a family, as I have, will join me in heartiest
recommendation of Castoria,"

Adjustment Seems Certain in the

Wilkesbarre Pa , June 5 The danger
of a strike seems to be already passing
away, even before the decision of the
convention of miners, which is to meet in
Pottsville within ten days This is due
to the statements of coal companies' offi
cials and superintendents that if the mine
workers at their convention should re
eleot the three district presidents as their
representatives on the conciliation board
b a majority vote there would be no
further objection to their eligibility to
serve on the board
This action will most likely be taken
at the coming convention, for the leaders
of the mine workers are not desirous of
forcing the issue to a suspension of work
unless they can find no other alternative

"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,

great business organizations of to-day. Therefore we have decided to

Shares are $100 each, and we especially invite subscriptions for one,
two, three, five and ten shares. We desire to carry out our idea of

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

stock any time after July 1, 1910.

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
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
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. Dayton, third floor of our store,
