Making History.
JNFANT MORTALITY in past ages has been something frightful, something
almost beyond belief, and even today it occupies the time and the mind of
leading physicians in all countries. The death rate among infants is being grad
ually reduced through new methods of hygiene, new preventatives and new reme
dies for infants. This reduction in the death rate has NOT been accomplished by
adapting the precautions taken and remedies used by adults. Rather has it been
to keep clear of the old methods, and choose after long research the precautions
and remedies specifically applicable to infants.
This being so, is it necessary for us to caution mothers against trying to
give her baby relief with a remedy that she would use for herself? Will she
remember that Fletcher's Castoria is strictly a remedy for infants and children?

Of Course You Love Your Baby.
You love it because of its very helplessness, because it can't te3
you what is the matter when it feels bad. It can only cry and looi
to you for help. But the more you love baby, the more you want to
help baby, the more you ought to realize what a wonderful remedy
Fletcher's Castoria is. ,It has been used for babies' ailments for oyer
thirty years.
An experienced doctor discovered Fletcher's Castoria especially
for babies' use. It is a harmless substitute for Castor Oil, Paregoric,
Drops and Soothing Syrups. Doctors who know what is safe and best
for babies have only good to say of it.
Don't neglect your baby. Get a bottle cf Fletcher's Castoria and
give baby a few doses of it. See how the little one smiles at you as
if trying to thank you for helping it. Soon you will learn to depend
on Fletcher's Castoria, made just for Infants and Children, and of
course you would not think of using anything for them that was not
prepared especially for Infants and Children. So keep it in the house.
