jNFANT MORTALITY is something frightful. We can hardly realize, that
of all the c'.iilliren born in civilized countries, twenty-two per cent., or nearly
one-quarter, lis before they reach one year; thirty-seven per cent, or more
than one-third, before thsy are five, and one-half before they are fifteen!
We do not hesitate to say that a timely use of Castoria would save
many of these precious lives. Neither do we hesitate to say that many of these
infantile deaths are occasioned by the use of narcotic preparations. Drops, tinc
tures and soothing syrups sold for children's complaints contain more or less opium
or morphine. They are, in considerable quantities, deadly poisons. In any
quantity, they stupify, retard circulation and lead to congestions, sickness,
death. There can be no danger in the use of Castoria if it bears the signature
of Chas. H. Fletcher as it contains no opiates or narcotics of any kind.

Dr. A. F. Peeler, of St. Louis, Mo., says : " I have prescribed
your Castori% in many csljcs and havi always found it an efficient
and speedy remedy."
Dr. E. Down, of Philadelphia, Pa., says : "I h~-"? Prescribed
your Castoria in my practice for many years with g ; catisfac
tion to myself and benefit to my patients."
Dr. J. E. Waggoner, of Chicago, 111., says : " I can mott
heartily recommend your Castoria to the public as a remedy for
children's complaints. I hare tried it and found it of great value."
Dr. Gustave A. Eioengraeber, of St. Paul, Minn., says : " I havo
used your Cc3toria repeatedly in my practice with good results,
and can recommend it aa an excellent, mild .and harmlcs3 remedy
for children."
Dr. J. B. Elliott, of New York City, says : " Having during
the past six years prescribed your Castoria for infantile stomach
disorders, I most heartily commend its use. The formula contains
nothing deleterious to the moat delicate of children."
Dr. C. G. Sprague, of Omaha, Neb., says : "Your Castoria
is an ideal medicine for children, and I frequently prescribe it.
While I do not advocate the indiscriminate use of proprietary
medicmee, yet Castoria is an exception for conditions which arise
in the care of children."
Dr. J. A. Parker, of Kansas City, Mo., says: "Your Castoria
holds the esteem of the medical profession in a manner held by no
other proprietary preparation. It is a sure and reliable medicine
for infants and children. In fact, it is the universal household
remedy for infantile ailment*."

I Discover that Unwritten
Laws of Matrimony Are a
High Fence.
"If I knew how to revise the unwrit
ten laws of matrimony. I'd begin to
day,'' said Martha Palmer, as we
lunched together.
"You, Martha Palmer!" I exclaimed,
very much startled, because I intend
ed to break one law myself by going
with Dr. Certeis to a concert. "What
do you want to do that you can't do?"
"I can't ride to the office in my
neighbor's auto any more, now thai
my husband is away! When Evan
was at home. Mr. Rocs?you remember
the nice neighbors just east of us
Mr. Ross used to pick us up often as
we waited for a street car. But, now
that Evan is gone, does Mr. Roes ever
see me at the corner? Never, my dear,
not even when it rains! If he were
half as kind to me alone as he used
to be to Evan and me together?the
neighborhood would go mad gossip
"I have a parallel," I said. "Will a
married man of the Lorlmer office
force fall into step with one of the
girls going to a car, as he would with
a man? Why. my dear, I've seen them
walk two blocks down a side street to
avoid it!"
"Mr. Ross does not consider me a
vampire," Martha continued, "and I
respect him as an old friend even
more than as an expert chauffeur.
Neither of us is at all afraid of the
other, but we both cringe from what
the people or/our street might say!'
"Yet we are educated to consider
sex a personal concern," I asserted,
"and It isn't. From the time we are
born, eexis subject to community con
trol. Your neighbors arrange for aJJ
of the occasions upon which you and
Mr. Ross may meet. However self-re

Jack Conway the Irish comedian of
ziberty Girl's Company at the Gayety
'heater thitf week, is one of the best
nown men on the burlesque stage to
ay. Jack has made the character of
Tim Reilly" famous and loves to tell
his story of his father.
Conway's father is one of the old
chool of the real Irishmen, and nad
ever seen his son on the stage, in
ict, he had not been to a theater
or over twenty-five years, but when
onway played in Providence he wrote
> his father who is the village black
mlth in Fall River to come and see
lie show, so with a friend of his son's
e went to the show. He had no idea
ist what part his son took so when
fie quartet came on his friend
lought he would fool the old man.
He told him Jack was in the quar
it and the old man just shook his
ead and said: "Well, they fix up so I
an hardly tell him."
After the performance he w^nt back
) see Jack and in the course of the
onversation Conway asked his father
'hat he thought of him, and got this
eply: "Well. son. I don't want to
urt your feelings, but this man Reilly
i the whole show."
Jack Conway 1s a man of high honor
f intelligence with a keen sense of
umor. He is a plain, clean-living, eol
?ge-bred gentlemen and is one of the
tw men of his calling that will have
othing in his show that geuld not be
een or heard by a lady without of- j
mding her. He is at the Gayety thi?
reek starring In the Liberty Girls, one
f the best shcrws seen here this year.

"And yet, Jane, neither you nor I
I would ever object to the unwritten
laws of matrimony except that they
[ make us too self-conscious for any
human good!"
"Oh-h-hV I exclaimed, for there was
a revelation in Martha's remark, al- j
though it wasn't one I could tell her
about. She had explained many em
barrassments in my life as a bride.
Now I understood why my wedding
had "queered" some good friendships.
In my father's college there had
i been a teacher of esthetics, an artist,
' with whom I had had wonderful walk*
and talks. He was wild about color,
j and today, because of what he tausht
' me. I can find beauty in a sordid.
. smoky street. But my lessons ended
j with my marriage. I can never walk ;
lout in the woods with him aaain. >
, Why. I couldn't even visit an art ?al
| lery with him.
And there was a senior student In
. college, a bom reformer, who opened
my eyes to the great modern social
problems. Just because he had talked
to me. I was able to understand my i
radical Bob when he came along!
j Even though Bob w?re willing? ?
which he wouldn't be?my friends and
: neighbors would never let me read a
j book on ev>nomtes with that student
i now.*
"The unwritten code of sex does get'
I awfully in the way of decent hu- ,
! mans," Martha went on. "It's lik<? a
high fence, -maybe you do not want
to climb over it at all, but it's there,
in aisht all of th# time, keeping really
nice men and women everlastingly re
minded of its ugly existence. And it
makes the men re^tl^ss?and the worn
i en embarrassed .or ?illy."
