Coroner's Inquest It is seldom; wise to give soothing syrup to fretful babies. The cries of the little folks are apt to be signs of indigestion. Nyal's Laxena is probably all that is required iu such cases. It instuut relief by reg- ulating the bowels and the stomach. In extreme eases ING may be used with confi- dence: When a mother is worn out aud her nerves on edge she will find Xyal's Soothing Syrup just what she wants to bring rest and peace to the distressed and disturbing infant; We rec- ommend Nyal's because it contains no opiates. It simply "produces a natural, healthy drowsiness. NEWS FROM TP. 2 R. 15 Theve was enough frost last Mon- night to uip the potato tops and other tender vegetables. Rev.
