FALL'S KIN BELIEVES IN LOVE WHEN CHILDREN CRY C HILDREN often cry for no apparent reason. Many times we can't guess what is wrong. The crying may mean a,touch of colic; the little bo\vels may be sluggish--or some other upset, it may mean any of the common little ailments that-children suffer. To bring quick comfort to your little one, give.a few drops of Castoria. Most upsets of children are soon soothed away by this pleasant- tasting remedy that children all love. In five million modern homes, Castoria is a mother's first thought when a child is out of sorts, feverish, cross, doesn't eat right or sleep right. When oad breath, coated tongue, or languor tells of constipation. These five million wise mothers kn'ow that children should never be given stronger medicines meant for the fully developed systems of grown-ups. Castoria is gentle--safe, yet always thorough and effective for a child of any age. It may be given to the tiniest infant for any little upset. When buying, look for the signature of Chas. H.
