A Heavy Section of Wall Tumbles Into
-- Bast River.
Jsew York, Sept. 9. The undermin
ing of the rear wall at the East River
end of Fifty-second street caused about
320 feet of the street and about 100 cubic
feet of the wall to topple into the river
with a crash that startled the neighbor

day evening. At the very edge of the
enormous pit made by the cave-in stands
the towering wall of a cigarette factory.
.The roar of the landslide brought
hundreds of people to the scene, and it

kept the crowd from rushing blindly

wreckage. The wall that, broke away
was about fifty feet away from the river
brink to the level of the street. Its en
tire face, with the exception of a narrow
piece near the south sidewalk, was
washed away and what did not slip into
the river was piled up in a confused
mass at the river's edge.
Tons of earth and cobblestones fell
upon a boat house . and crashed two
skiffs like a couple of eggshells.

Castoria is truly a marvelous thing for
children. Doctors prescribe it, medical
journals recommend it and more than
a million mothers are using it in place
of Paregoric, Bateman's Drops, so-called
soothing syrups and other narcotic and
stupefying remedies. Castoria is the
quickest thing to regulate the stomach
and bowels and give healthy sleep the
world has ever seen. It is pleasant to
the taste and absolutely harmless. It
relieves constipation, quiets pain, cures
diarrhoea and wind colic, allays fever
ishness, destroys worms, and prevents
convulsions, soothes the child and gives
it natural sleep. Castoria is the chil
dren's panacea the mother's friend.
Castoria is put up in one size bottles
only. It is not sold in bulk. Don't al
low any one to sell you anything else
on the plea of promise that it is "just as
good" and "will answer every purpose."
