THROAT IRRITATION AND COILIGII-Soreness and dryness, tickling and irritation, inducing cough and affecting the voice. For these symptoms use Epps's Glycerine Jujubes. In contact with the glands at the moment they are excited by the act of sucking, the Glycerine in these agreeable confections becomes actively healing. Sold only in boxes, 7M., tins, Is, l £ d., labelled" JAMES EPPS & Co., Homoeopathic Chemists, London." Dr. George Moore, in his work on Nose and Throat Diseases," says: "The Glycerine Jujubes prepared by James Epps and Co., are of undoubted service as a curative or palliative agent," while Dr. Gordon Holmes, Senior Physician to the Municipal Throat and Ear Infirmary, writes: "After an extended trial, I have found your Glycerine Jujubes of considerable benefit in almost all forms of throat disease." NELSON'S COFFIN. â Admiral E. A. Inglefield sends to a contemporary an interesting account of the presentation to Nelson of his coffin some time before his death. He says: Ben Hallowell, captain of the Swiftsure, who was afterwards better known in the navy as Admiral Sir Benjamin Hallowell Carew, was a great personal friend of Nelson's. After the battle of the Nile-when L'Orient was blown up-a portion of her mainmast was picked up near the Swiftsure, and the captain had a coffin made from the wood, and sent it to Nelson with the following letter: "Swiftsnre, August, 1798. Sir,âI have taken the liberty of presenting you with a coffin, made from the mainmast of L'Orient, that when you have finished your militant career in this world you may be buried in one of your trophies; but that that period may be far distant is the earnest wish of your sincere friend, BEN HALLOWELL." Nelson was so pleased with the gift that he caused it to be placed upright against the bulkhead of his dining-cabin on board the Victory, immediately behind the chair where he always sat at dinner, and there it stood until used to convey the mortal remains of the hero to his last resting-place in St. Paul's. A death from hydrophobia has occurred at Great Bedwyn, near Devizes. A little boy named Francis Wallis, three and a half years of age, was bitten by a dog last June, and a few days ago he was seized with convulsions. He suffered great agony for two days, and then died. The medical evidence at the inquest shewed that hydrophobia was the cause of death.
