CRY FOR IT
OIIILDREN hate to take medicine
as a rule, but every child loves
the taste of Castoria. And this pure
vegetable preparation is just as good
as it tastes; just as bland and just as
harmless as the recipe reads.
When Baby! cry warns of colic,
a few drops of Castoria has him
soothed, asleep again in a jiffy. Noth
ing is more valuable in diarrhea.
When coated tongue or bad breath
tell of constipation, invoke its gentle
aid to cleanse and regulate a child's
bowels. In colds or children's diseases,
you should use H to keep the system
Castoria is sold in every drugstore;
