It is used by physicians with! results most gratifying. The'extended use of Castoria is unquestionably tha iesult of three facts: First —The indisputable evidence that it is harmless? Second —That it not only allays stomach pains and quiets the nerves, but assimi lates tho food: Third —It is an agreeable and perfect substitute for Castor Oil* It is absolutely safe. It does not contain any Opium, Morphine, or other narcotio' and does not stupefy. It is unlike Soothing Syrups, Bateman's Drops, Godfrey's; Cordial, etc. This is a good deal for a Medical Journal to say. Our 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. To our knowledge, Castoria is a remedy which produces composure and health, by regulating the system—not by stupefying it—and our readers are entitled to. the information. — Kail's Journal of Health.
