Medical. Advice to mothers.—Are you broken in your rest by a sick child suffering with the pain of cutting teeth? Go at once to the chemist and get a bottle of Mrs. WINSLOW’S SOOTHING SYRUP. It will relieve the poor sufferer immediately. It is perfectly harmless ; it produces natural, quiet sleep by relieving the child from pain, and the little cherub awakes “ as bright as a button.” It has been in use’ in America, and is highly recommended by medical men. It is very pleasant to take ; it sooths the child ; it softens the gums, allays all pain, relieves wind, regulates the bowels, and is the best known remedy for dysentry and diarrhoea, whether arising from teething or other causes. Be sure and ask for Mrs. Winslow’s Soothing Syrup, and see that “Curtis and Perkins, New York and London,” is on the outside wrapper. No mother should be without it. Sold by all medicine dealers, at Is. lid.—Depot, 493, Oxford street.
