Tick Boy, the winner of the first mon
ey, is pronounced by a number of fine
Judges to be the best young pointer in
America today. He was badly handi
capped in the all-age race of the eastern
trials on account of having what “dog
doctors" call the "after effects of big
head.” He retired Jingo to second place
in this race after having won first In the
Jingo, too. is a wonderful pointer. He

tests and won money in every one of

Castoria is Dr. Samuel Pitcher’s prescription for Infants
mid Children. It contains neither Opium, Morphine nor
other Narcotic substance. It is a harmless substitute
for Paregoric, Drops, Soothing Syrups, and Castor Oil.
It is Pleasant. Its guarantee is thirty years’ use bv
Millions of Mothers. Castoria destroys Worms mid allays
feverishness. Castoria prevents vomiting Sour Curd,
cures Diarrhoea and Wind Colic. Castoria relieves
toethiug troubles, cures constipation and flatulency.
Castoria assimilates the food, regulates the stomach
mid bowels, giving healthy and natural sleep. Cas
toria is tlio Children’s Panacea—the Mother’s Friend.
" Castoria is an excellent medio? a for chil
dren. Mothers have repeatedly told mo of its
good effect upon their children."
• Da. Q. C. Osgood,
Lowell, Mass.
•» Castoria is the best remedy for children of
which I am acquainted. I hope tho day is not
far distant when mothers will consider the real
interest of their children, and use Castoria in
stead of the various quack nostrums which are
destroying their loved ones, by forcing opium,
morphine, soothing syrup and other hurtful
agents down their throats, thereby sending
them to premature graves.1*
Da. J. F. Kincuklox,
Conway, Ark.
“ Castoria Is so well adopted to children that
I recommend it as superior to any prescription
known to me."
H. A. Archer, M. D.,
111 So. Oxford St., Brooklyn, N. Y.
•* Our physicians in the children's depart
ment hftve spoken highly of their experi
ence in their outside practice with Castoria,
and although we only have among our
medical supplies what is known as regular
products, yet we are free to confess that the
merits of Castoria has won us to look with
favor upon it."

THERE are many GOOD life insurance companies, but among
them all there must be one BEST. I HE BEST, is I HE
EQUITABLE. If you wish to know why, send for: i, the
report of the Superintendent of Insurance for the State of New
York on the examination of The Equitable; 2, for actual results
of maturing policies ; 3, for statement of death claims paid in
1894. Then you will know the three great reasons of The
Equitable’s supremacy: First, its financial stability; second,
its great profits and advantages to living policy-holders; third,
the promptness of its payments and liberality of its settlements.
