DEAR Stu,—I wish to acknowledge my gratitude to you for the relief I have received from using your Tudor Williams' Balsam of Honey. For more than two years I have been a great sufferer from Colds and Coughs, in fact, my life was quite a burden to me; with pains all over my Chest. I have had three bottles of your Balsam of Honey, and am grateful to say that I am cured—can go on with my performance with pleasure. Shall highly recommend it to otheis. You can use this testimonial as you like. I am. yours faithfully, F. CIIIRGWIN, Comic Clown, —— Blackburn. IS SOMETHING MARVELLOUS. A BAG OF LETTERS IN EVERY DAY, and what they say about Tudor Williams' Balsam of Honey is something marvellous. SEVERE CHRONIC BRONCHITIS, combined with Asthma and Heart Affection (8 years' standing), CURED: I have been under doctors for 8 years. They did not do me any lasting good. When I beg.n your treatment I was at my very worst. My breathing was very bad. I had to sit up in bed all night, and my cough was so hard I could not cough up any thiug. In the daytime I was worse. I used to get such fits of perspiration and afterwards turn quite cold. I was always catching fresh colds. I'am now able to sleep at nights, and when I rise up in the morning am able to do my work with ease. Mrs. JACKSON. Sea View, Southpoit. WORTHY OF YOUR CONSIDERATION. SIR,—My wife desires me to say that your Tudor Williams' Balsam of Honey nas proved a most valuable medicine in our large family (eight children). As soon mveouKh or cold mattes its appearance, a dose of Tudor's Balsam is %t once administered, and this treatment is followed up until the cold dis- appears. Before using the Balsam in our family the children have been prostrate with colds for several weeks, but now, by taking doses as directed, they seem to suffer very little inconvenience. During the short time the cold is upon them, the ction of the Balsam is marvellous, and the little ones take it readily and ask for more.—WALTER J. BRETT, C.M., Headmaster, Severn Tunnel School. BALSAM OF HONEY AT THE ROYAL NATIONAL BAZAAR. When it was decided to have a Welsh Stal at the National Bazaar in aid of the sufferers by the War, Mr. D. TUDOR WILLIAMS offered the Hon. Secretary, Arthur J. Coke, Esq., a case of Balsam of Honey, which was gratefully accepted. The Balsam found a ready sale amongst the Royalty and nobility who patronised the Bazaar. NURSE DARLING, NURSE HOME, KIMBERLEY. Tudor Williams's Patent Balsam of Honey you kindly forwarded to the front, I am pleased to be able to say that I have found it most beneficial to my patients and self. In one case I attended a private soldier, a native of Gloucestershire. He had been wounded in the chest. He had f> troublesome cough. He askad for Tudor Williams's Balsam of Honey. I was surprised at the wonderful effect it had on the poor fellow soothing the nasty cough and promoting free expectoration—thus promptly clearing the bronchial tube and air vessels or the accunmlated mucous. He wished me to drop you this line. SEE YOU GET THE GENUINE ARTICLE. TUDOR WILLIAMS PATENT BALSAM OF HONEY. SO MANY IMITATIONS AND FRAUD.

TO THE ELECTORS OF THE EASTERN WARD. LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, My term as your representative on the Town Council terminates on the 31st inst. During my time of office several large undertakings have been carried out. The great Water Scheme I have carefully watched, and reports received from our Engineer seem very satisfactory. Our new Cattle Market is progressing favourably. This improvement has had my special attention, and I trust that my efforts in this respect have met with your approval. For the present I do not consider the high rates we are called upon to pay, justify the Ccuncil in spending more money upon improvemen which are not likely to bring in sufficient revenue to meet the outlay. Economy with progress has been my great aim. If you deem my past services worthy of your further confidence, if elected, I shall endeavour at all times to forward the local interests of our Borough. I have the honour to be, Ladies and Gentlemen, Yours faithfully, GEORGE TREHARNE. Gwalia House, Priory-street, Oc. 21st, 1902. CARMARTHEN MUNICIPAL ELECTION, 1902.

I hope, therefore, that it may be possible for me, if no further outOreak occurs, to withdraw the order at no very distant date but as the honourable Member himself pointed out in Committee of Supply muzzling orders have not hitherto been attended with the same success in this County a. elsewhere, such orders having had to be re-imposed on three separate occasions, shortly after their withdrawal. 1 am anxious to take every precaution to avoid a similar occurence on the present occasion, and to be quite satisfied that the orders have done their work.
