That made It smart and burn so badly that I couldn’t use It any more, and that was the fourth week after I was hurt. "Then I began to use Cutlcura Oint ment for the sore. It stopped hurting immediately and began healing right away. It was a bad-looklng sore be fore Cutlcura Ointment healed It, and 1 suffered so I couldn't sleep from two days after I fell until I began using Cutlcura Ointment.

It is used by physicians with results most gratifying. The extended use of Castoria is unquestionably the result of three facts: tint— The indisputable evidence that it is harmless: Second —That it not only allays stomach pains and quiets the nerves, but assimi lates the food: raw—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 innooent children through greed or ignorance ought to end.
