BROWN'S COUGH BOTTLE ii probably the incit marvellous Cough Cure ever invented. It is =o good that there is no need for any of the romantic tales usually associated with patent mcdicines. In the production of this wonderful Cough Cure cost lias not been considered, and it is prepared from the choicest drugs money can buy. For a hacking cough, a tickling throat, or a. cold in the chest, there's nothing like it. It gives prompt relief in cases of Asthma, Bronchitis, and Consumption. It im- proves the voice by giving tone to the vocal chords. A teaspoonful of DR. BROWN'S about a quarter of an hour before singing or speaking is very effec- tive. CAUTION! Don't be persuaded that something else is just as good. or better, or the verv same thing. Dr. BROWN'S COUGH BOTTLE is our Registered Trade Mark. It is certain there is nothing so good, and. therefore, nothing can be better, and. as for something else being the same, it's absurd. JESSE WILLIAMS and CO. are the Sole Proprietors. Remember, Dr. Brown's or nothing." If you have anything the matter with your Chest, Throat, Lung3, Bronchial Tubes, or Voice, a few doses of DR. BROWN'S COUGH BOTTLE will put you right in a jiffy. It warms the chest, cuta the phlegm, and lubricates the throat. Sold in Hottles, 1«., 2s. 9d., ar:d 4s. 6d., at JESSE WILLIAMS'S. Fark-hall-buildin^s, Cardiff. a.3Z73 JNFLUENZA. JNFLUENZA.

COMICALITIES. :f Maud fageJ nine>: No. 1 don't expect now, that I'll ever see Niagara Falls. Mabel (aged eighteen): Why not, Maudie? MauJ: Well, I did expect to go there on my wedding tour, but the papers say it ain't fashionable no more for brides. Mrs. West: I suppose you have heard that our neighbour, Mrs. Tingle, caught her husband kissing the cook yesterday ? Mrs. East: Yes, but who can blame him? It's probably the first time he ever had anyone in the house that knew how to cook. Young Prossar was unsophisticated and childlike, and had come from the country to take a clerkship in a City office. Not long after his arrival a telephone was fitted at the place, and this he was expected to work. His first experience with it was very unpleasant. On hearing the call of the bell, he put the receiver to his ear, and distinctly heard his employer's voice ask for certain information. Now, Prosser in his simplicity thought that J as bis.employcr was two miles away it would be necessary to shout with all his might. So he thundered his message back. But to his chagrin, back came the answer, "I 'don't understand you at all." Prosser yelled again and again, but with no better result. Then a. solution of the difficulty occurred to him, and he softly soliloquised, "I wonder if the old idiot is deaf." His blood ran cold as he heard the sound of his governor's voice in response, "No. Prosser, the old idiot is not deaf, and gives you a month's notice." "This introduction gives me great pleasure, believe me," frankly explained Brown, when introduced to a popular society actress. "Really you flatter me, Mr. Brown;" "Not at all. I have worshipped you from a distance for over twenty years and Brown is still engaged racking his brain trying to find out why the actress cut him short, and has since declined to recognise him when they accidentally meet. The following stcrr of crary aspirations Lipp?d in tile bud (tunes us from a rural source. A farmer, who Vi possessed of some means, entered the office a local newspaper and asked for tie editoi The farmer was accompanied by h., son. zouth of seventeen years; ond as SOOt as tleditor, who was in his secret sanctum was brmel that his visi- tors were not bill ollect, he came forward and shook hands. "I c& to git some infer- mation," explained the aitor. "Certainly." said the editor; "aid 5 come to the right place. Be seated!" yfarmer took a chair, while his son sat on ),and of the table. "This boy of mine." he sitfwants to go into the littery business, an' riought you'd know if thur was any moneyit or not. It's a good business—ain't it?" hy yes," said the edi- tor, after some litUesitation. "I've been in it myself for iffieesars. and you see where I've got to." The ter eyed him from head to foot, glanced id the poorly-furnished office, surveyed thlitor once more, then, turning to his son.o was still on the table, said: "Fifteen yea Get up.

WHAT, WOJLES PROPOSE? The average woman would be horrified, as a rule, if you made the assertion in her presence that her sex ever propounded the momentous question and proposed m.,rriitge to the man. But when you stop and quietly go over the ques- tion you will find tha,t in many nstances wtman has taken the initiative—not in words, perhaps, but in clev^Hy devised plots and by just helping seme bashful lover along. 1.3 not the wooing of Priscilla a good example of our meaning? Did she not propose when she said. Why not sp'eak for yourself, John?" Experienced devoteas of the fair sex say the widows are more expert at proposing marriage that the debutante or reasonably up-to-date girl. But the widow is a hard proposition to cope with. She feels it imminently her privi- lege to ccfo over a man, say sweet things to him, tell him he is the sweetest thing in town, and make him so absolutely comfortable that he dreads renewed aequaintanft; with his bachelor apartments. But the widow is dan. g«rons. She knows h.)w to manage a man with skilfu-l tact. If -lie decides to marry him she will, and he is helpless. More desirable bachelors have been made bencd cts through the influenc3 of an after dinner cigar, shadrd lamps, and a grutt* fire than boroks ever tell of-" case of cause and effect. One frank woman remarked:— Weil, looking seriously at it, I gus-js I did propose to Jim. He had loved me Ion? enough and deserved to be rewarded, only he was too busy with law to form the proper speech. I dressed un in his pet gewn and my big hat and went ;ind sat in the moonlight when I knew h' was coming, with a sad. far away took in mv eyes. He took my hand and simplv paid, Thf weather is so lovely I wish we might hare a few days by the sea before the summ..r and in the most coy ltrnr.er I sa'd. Let us go!' In three weeks we wore married." And who says woman never propose?
WHERE IT Is: REALLY COLD. A recent Siberian traveller narrates: —"At Sadcnsk in the intensely cold nights the silence was sometimes broken by a loud report as of a canr.cn. This was the bursting of one of the ice oubble3 cu the river, a. phenomenon I had neither heard ncr read of before. The streams coining down frcm the hills were frozen on the surface some six to nine inches thick. The water beneath flowed faster than it ocuid escape, and the pressure, on tha principle of a hydraulic Vress. became irresistible. First, the elasticity of the ice was seem bv the rising of circular mounds some six to eight (pet in diameter and from four to five feet high. The bursting point came at last with a. report like an explosion. The water escaped, but soon froze again. I have seen scores of these ice hillccks in a. few verjts of the river."
USERS OF MORPHINE, The Independance BeIge" has made a com- pilation of morphine fiends," found among men and women in different vocations of life. Out of 230 ca.?03, amoag 22 classes of occupa- tions, scientists, artists, and journalists were j found least addicted to the habit, but there were 69 physicians in the number. Eighteen cases- were charged to working men and twenty against pharmacists. In all occupations women appeared at aa great a disadvantage as men.
THE BEST WAY OF CHECKING THE RAVAGES OF TUBERCULOSIS in infants, wh'ch official returns have shown to be increas- ing year by year, is for all parents to see that their children are fed only on HORLICK'S, MALTED MILK, which differs from all other foods by the important fact that no added milk is needed. It is diluted with warm water only. In Horlick's Malted Mi:k the cow's product is sterilized, and It is impossible for it to transmit any germs to your child. Avoid the terrible danger of disease by taking this simple and inexpensive precaution. Besides its absolute purity, the preparation is much better than the best cow can give you under the best circumstances, and it is indeed a per- fect food for children, and the only scientific substitute for human milk. Your chemist will supply it. Price Is. 6d.. 2s. 6d., and 11s. A freo samole will be sent, on application, by Horlick and Co., 34, Farringdon-road, London, E.C.

TOBACCO AND THE BUDtiET. It was announced last week that Messrs. Lipton (Limited) had paid nearly £77.000 in one cheque as duty on tea, this being the largest amount ever received as payment of duty by the Customs. The anticipation that the Chancellor of the Exchequer may see fit to again interfere with the tobacco duty by putting on this year a little of what he took off last year has led to heavy clearances of tobacco from bond, manufacturers knowing that, whereas they cannot lose anything beyond the interest on their money, they might by chance make a great deal if the Budget touches tobacco. As we have already announced, nearly £186,000 was paid last week for duty on tobacco in Liverpool, this establishing a record. Now we learn that Messrs. Ogden have beaten the record pre- viously held by Messrs. Lipton for an individual cheque, having recently paid in respect to tobacco cleared from the Liverpool bonded warehouses a cheque for no less a sum than .€85,000. If the enormous payments of which we hear on all sides are reducing the expected deficit to a minimum, the Chancellor of the Exchequer will be laughing in his sleeve, and on Budget night his statement should not be as unpleasant a one as is in certain quarters expected.
"WHY no WE LOOK SO GLOOM Y 1" In a recent number of "Tit-Bits" a corre- spondent. Sam Weller, asks the above ques- tion, Why do we look so gloomy?" He says in effect the average Britisher, while enjoying the repute among fi^signers for integ- rity and honesty, is nevertheless gloomy, cast down, Ac., and concludes by saying, "Can we not cheer up?" Of course, we can. The reason for this gloominess originates in a large measure because people suffer from Indigestion, Liver Complaints. Wind on the Stomach, Sick Head- ache, Nervous Debility, Biliousness, &c., and the way to cheer up is to secure good health by taking Page Woodcock's Wind Pills, which for 47 years have proved invaluable for the cure of Indigestion and its kindred evils. A Prominent Business Man, whose name is known world-wide, says: —"Your celebrated Wind Pills are priceless to me. I am never without a supply, and I give many away. For Biliousness, Sick Headache, and Indigestion they are far before any of the largely adver- tised Patent Medicines, for I have tried most of them. Use my testimony as you please. Give my name and address to any inquirer." Here's another plain statement:— Mr. Ben Simons, Lloyd's Agent, Sutton-on-Sca, says:- "For a Jam; time I sufTered from Indigestion, Loss of Appetite, and general depression; life was a burden. I was recommended to take Page Woodcock's Wind Pills. In a few weeks I was a new man, and now enjoy excellent health." Page Woodcock's Wind Pills, being purely Vegetable. Tasteless, and Mild and Tonic in their action, may be taken with perfect safety by the most delicate of either sex. All Medicine Vendors at is. lid. and 2s. 9d. E7412-1

ESTABLISIlEi) UPWARDS OF 3J YEARS. inese world-renowned Pills hold the first place in the World as remedies for PILE and GRA VEL, end the common disorders of the Stomach. Bowels, Liver, and Kidneys. There is not a civilised nation under the sun that has not expe- rienced their healing virtues. GENERAL SYMPTOMS.—Pains in the back, toins, between the shoulders, and in the region of the heart, stomach, liver, and kidneys, con- stipation. wind, griping, colic, biliousness, sup- pression and retention ot urine, pains in the thighs, palpitation, giddiness, depression of spirits, general debility. and other symptoms too obvious to point out. These Remedies do not profess to do the tlnpossible-to cure all the ills flesh is heir to. What the proprietor, however, does claim is that. in George's Pile and Gravel Pilis," he has discovered Remedies of the extraordinary virtues and efficacy for two of the most painful and common disorders that trouble mankind (Piles and Gravel), and their accompanying tches and pains; medicines which never fail to effcrd relief even in old and.Tiewlected forms of these complaints, whilst in case", of more recent date satisfactory cures may be confidently expected from their healing action. The three forms of these remedies:- No. 1.—GEORGE'S PILE AND GRAVEL PILLS No. 2,-GEORGWS GRAVEL PILLS. No. 3—GEORGE'S PILLS FOR THE PILES. The Proprietor has in his possession thousands of testimonials from all parts of the world, of which tho following are offered as fair wa.mples From the originator of the movement in favour of taxing Royalties and Ground Rents for local purposes:— I have looked over hundreds of Original Tes- timonials received by Mr. J. E. George, Hirwain, bearing upon cures effected by his Pile and Gravel Pills.' The writers of tnese letter' are nnanimous in their testimony to the Marvellous Remedial Powers of Mr. George's Remedies. I look upon the bundle ot testimonials placed before me as a Satisfactory Proof that he has. bv his discovery, been tile means of alleviating the pains of a multitude of sufferers. D. E.

My dear Nephews and Nieces,—I have a great deal of pleasure to-day in giving for your amuse- ment an original drawing by a. deaf and dumb boy. This lad is a pupil at Mrs. Melville's excellent deaf and dumb school, which has proved such a blessing to so many poor, unfor- tunate children these many years past. I am sure you will all agree with me that there is any amount of vigour in the picture. Why, there are actually sparks flying o'U of the foot- ballers! And the11, again, look at the expression of grim determination on their faces. Surely, thi:, is a battle of giants! Young Allen has a good deal of the artist about him. He has also modelled in white clay a beautiful little statuette of Lord Nelson, not >:x inches high, which he copied from an engraving. All the which he copied from an engraving. All the children at the school have been talking about, I the great hero evrr since the visit of the Fou- uroyant to CurdifF.

I am sur-i j all my Nephews and Niece? feel the greatest interest in and sympathy with these poor little people deprived of the precious blessings ot hearing and speech. t
A TRIP TO BRISTOL Dear Uncle,—I am going to tell you about, my trip to Bristol. My father took me on Good Friday. We went in the train, and we passed green fields, ai i then we got out and waiked through the streets, acid went in the Zoological Gardens and saw all the lions and tigers, an;: the man ecratched the tiger's back. And then we went in the monkey house and saw the monkeys. They were eating carrots and nuts. And then we went and saw the big elephant. It was eating straw. We saw t'he zebra, it has yellow stripes "U over it. Then we saw the seals, from which we get they were swimming in the water. Then we saw the eagle. It is a great bird of prey. Then we saw the cockatoos; they were saying "Pretty Polly." and they were asking you to } scratch their head. Then we saw the snakes; some of them were sleeping and some were drinking water. Then we saw the camel and dromedary, and the white bear. It is a very nice olaee is Bristol, and we went over the Suspension Bridge. Some young man in the train told ua the train was to start back at nine o'clock and we went to the station when it was time, and waited for the train. We asked i the porter what time the train would come. and he said one o'clock in the night, and lM said we had missed the train, and we had to go and get lodgings till it was time. and then when it was time we got the train, and when r we got out of the train it was pouring rain aud we had to walk home.
