Mothers! Mothers!! Mothers!!!

Are you disturbed at night and broken of your rest, by a sick child suffering and crying with the excruciating pain of cutting teeth? If so, go at once and get a bottle of MRS. WINSLOW'S SOOTHING SYRUP. It will relieve the little sufferer at once — depend upon it: there in no mistake about it. There is not a mother on earth who has ever used it who will not tell you at once that it will regulate the bowels, and give relief to the mother, and relief and health to the child, operating like magic. It is perfectly safe to use in all cases, and pleasant to the taste, and is the prescription of one of the oldest and best female physicians and nurses in the United States. Sold everywhere. 25 cents a bottle.

Note: The secret ingredient in Mrs. Winslow's Soothing Syrup is morphine.
