Castoria. •‘Castoria Is an excellent medlclno for chil dren. Mothers have repeatedly told mo of its good effect upon their children." Da. Q. C. Osaoon, Lowell, Mass. Castoria is the best remedy for children of which I am acquainted. I hope the day is rot far distant when mothers will consider tho real interest of their children,'and uso Castoria in stead of tho various quack nostrums which aro destroying their loved ones, by forcing opium, morphine, soothing syrup and other hurtful agents down their throats, thereby sending them to premature graves."

Private Medical Dispensary t Steiner Bank Building, Corner First Avenue and Twenty first Street, Birmingham, Ala. The Oldest, Best Equipped and Most Successful in the South. Office Hours—8:30 a, m. to 12 m , 1:30 to 5:30 p. m. A Specialist treats only a special or particular class a# diseases. I have the distinction of being the only physician in the South controlling sufficient practice In Private Dis eases to devote my whole time to their cure. This daily contact for year after year with such troubles gives experience. Experience is essential to success. My Medical Dispensary was established In the city of Birmingham August 3, 1887, for the exclusive cure of Private Diseases. Privacy Is one of Its special features. It is so arranged that one patient never necessarily sees another. People who have social rela tions to sustain appreciate this. The very best of people are often unfortunate and dislike to consult their family physicians through feelings of delicacy. To them I offer a safe, sure cure and perfect privacy. SYPHILIS—Many physicians claim that this disease cannot be cured—that is, en tirely eradicated from the system. I am willing to contract with any responsible person on the basis of no cure no pay. This is the way I guarantee cures. GONORRHOEA—If you have Gonorrhoea, Gleet, Lucorrhoea, Whites or any other troublesome discharge that falls to get well under ordinary treatment, come or write to me. If I fall to cure you I don’t want your money. URETHRAL STRICTURE cured on the same terms. The treatment Is painless. I perform all manner of surgical operations pertaining to my specialty, and through the Influence of anesthetics cause no pain. This Is a boon to the afflicted. There arc many complications following Private Diseases, such as Bad Blood, Skin, Bladder and Womb Troubles, Ulcers, Pimples, Blotches, Sore Mouth, etc., all of which quickly get well when the cause is removed. I wish to call special attention to my treatment of unfortunates suffering from the elTects of Early Imprudence, Errors of Youth, Loss of Vitality, Loss of Manhood, Sex ual Debility, or any of the maddening effects. Get well and be a man. Enjoy life as you should. Thousands of men and youths are occupying subordinate positions in life today who, if they were able to exercise their brain power to its fullest capacity, would instead be leaders. In a majority of cases I can cure my patients by mail treatment. I can furnish med icines from my Dispensary, or as I am a Regular Licensed Physician, I can write them prescriptions. If they prefer they can have them prepared by their home druggist. If you live in or near the city, call at my Private Dispensary. If at a distance, write me your trouble. My book on Private Diseases and proper question lists will be sent on application. ADVERTISING—A Specialist should advertise. His patients are scattered over a large extent of territory, and it is right and proper for him to use the help of the news papers to let them know where they can get the relief they desire. Newspaper Heputations. T have received many complimentary notices from various papers, and I have had a few of them printed in my advertisements, but wishing to exclude everything that might possibly deceive anyone, I have omitted them. They are- deceptive. They read as If they were personal endorsements of one’s character or ability, but they are not. The editor In many instances does not even knotfr you. They are given either in considera tion of a liberal contract for advertising or Tor cash direct at so much per line. You can buy them and have all you wish to pay for. You can have them say Just what you please, then you can put them in your regular advertisement, as they are your prop erty. Stop and think a moment. Did you ever pee one about a doctor that did not ad vertise? Ask tha,editor of any paper if the. above Is not the truth, pure and simple. No Steam Ginnery-Grist Mill Or Saw Mill Is complete without one. Our ENTER PRISE COTTON SteED IIULLER and FEED MILL will grind from 300 to 600 bushels of cotton seed per day and at the same time separate the meats from the hulls, or let them fall together, as desired.
