He may not have been able to give scientific 1 Sj| names tor his ailments but he could generally lay his hand on a reliable remedy for B jjU| them. If some of his views regarding his internal economy were more or less hazy, he was at least happy in knowing that if he ta&g TOOK BEECHAM'S PILLS the health of his digestive organs would be assured. Your grandfather was a practical man who looked for definite results before he became enthusiastic, whether he was dealing with a new machine or a family medicine. His » opinion of BEECHAM'S PILLS he expressed in the well known phrase "WORTH A GUiNEA A BOX." In them he had at hand a sure and immediate remedy for Indigestion and disorders ol the Liver and Bowels.

LONDON GOSSIP. GU'EilO'U'S GIFTS TO ROYALTY. Kings and Queens are frequently the re- cipients of strange presents amongst 0 which musti be classed the 'box of sprats, sent as a birthday gift to Queen Alexandra, by the Aldeburgh fishermen. A ShOTt, time [ ago King Edward received from an American farmer a present of a gigantic prize potato weighing nearly five pounds. Another gjitffr from, the other side of the Atlantic, whicih his Majesty must have found equally interesting and still more useful, was a nugget of Klondyka gold, weighing nearly as much as the potato, a,nd valued ,ajt JB260. Occasionally their Majesties are the recipients of bequests by will,, and the late Lord Aljington left a legacy of £:100 to the Queen. The largest legacy of this kind was the £500,000, which John Neale left- to Queen Victoria. Others make a free gjiit of their advice, and when a Rioyal personage is ill pre- scriptions and recommendations come in by showers. The King, unfortunately, was kept indoors at Sandringham, for some days last week, by a cold, but if there were any virtue in the supposed cures for a cold, his Majesty would not lack a remedy, as there is not one of these cures, fads or otherwise, which has not at one time or another been sent to his Majesty by well-intentioned people. THEilRi MAJESTIES' VISIT: TO MELBURiY. The West Cbuntry has been favoured by several Royal visits lately, and Melbury, where the King and Queen have been on a. visit this week to Lord and Lady Ilchester, is in Samersetlshire, not. far from Yeovil. Part of the house dates from the reign of Henry VII., but the original building has been much altered and enlarged, and the park is noted for its beautiful scenery, and immense oak trees, said to be the finest in the Kingdom. The Ilchester family can also boast of one of the most wonderful sub-tropical gardens to be seen in this country. This is at Abbotsbury Castle, on the Dorsetshire coast, the resi- dence of the Dowager Lady Ilchester, and here may be seen flourishing almost, every kind of bamboo, the cypress, the mimosa, the eucalyptus, the Abyssinian banana, and numerous other species of semi- tropical vegetation. The soil and shelter- ed situation have contributed not a little to this triumph of exotic horticulture. DIREiOTOIRE DANCES. Wih the Direetoire costume, dancing has become little more than a short-step shuffle, and for the smart woman it will be a choice between giving up dancing this winter, or insisting on a gown in which this is possible. Happily the more audacious examples of the Direlc.tollre cos- tume aire not often seen outside Paris, where the desire of the fashionable woman is apparently to appear as deshabiilee as possible. For her, the use of as little material as possible constitutes the whole art of dressling, but although our friend Dame Fashion does not carry this prin- ciple so far, yet were sixteen or twenty yards of material went into a gown half that quantity now suffices, and the most obvious result is, that, such tightly-fitting' garments make dancing with ease and comfort impossible. Either there will be many fewer women dancing' this season, or there must, be some relaxation from the present extreme eccentricities of the Directoire mode. BUTTONS AND TAXES. The present, craze for' buttons reminds us that. at one time people were not per- mited to wear "buttons made of cloth, serge, drugget, or freize." They were pro- hibited in the eighteenth century for fear that the button-makers might be ruined by sudden changes of fashion introduced from abroad. Foreigners arriving in this coun- try had their buttons examined, and if they were, found to be of the prohibited kind, they had to cut, them off or pay a penalty of 40s. Nowadays buttons do not pay taxes, except perhaps when worn by 4 liveried servants, but., in the old days, almost everything contributed to the Ex- chequer, including women's halts. A mil- liner had to take out an annual license costing £ 2, and a tax was levied on all the hats and bonnets she sold. If the Chan- cellor of the Exchequer were to once more turn his attention to details of personal attire, no doubt his first idea would be a tax on feminine headgear above a certain height: and width. AN ECONOMICAL MODE. The home worker will rejoice at, the re- vival of the pinafore gown, generally car- ried out in the new, very soft velveteens. With these, gowns, separate, well-fitting underbodices—the neck, yoke, 'and sleeves, of some dainty fabric—are worn, and needless to say, by means of them, divers changes can be rung. At the moment, the underbodice matches the gown-lby the way, deep wine shades are lea-dino,-but as a rule this arrangement is by no means so becoming as the cream., or pale ecru underbodice. THE OLD-WORLD SCARF. One of the most desirable presents for a girl or woman, this Xmas is a, long old- world scarf. For afternoon card partoes it looks charming thrown over' the bodice or blouse, and in the evening it can fre- quently be retained at the restaurant din- ner, or theatre, and make for comfort and an elegant appearance. Some of the best scarves are finished with the most wonder- ful fringes, others are beautifully inlet with lace, while the embroc,denes, and hand-paintisid devices seen upon yet other speciimens, are past the power of the pen to describe. But of course such scarves are costly in the extreme, and for the few fortunate ones only, still the, nimble- fingered have no cause to despair. For example, very dainty scarves can be manu- factured from a length of crepe, silk muslin or net, and the sewing' must be done with exeeedrng neatness, when, save at, quite close quarters the effect will be that of the finest, embroidery.

Mrs. Archer, of 127, Cann Hall Road, Levtonstone, writes:— "My little boy, just 3 years old, suffeied terribly for over 9 months from whooping cough He coughed con- tinuously all ihat time, and we did not know what it was to have a good night's rest with him. raid we thought he flonld not live. I tiied nesrly everything you can mention, emulsions, lozenges, etc., and spent pounds, but found nothing do him any good, until I tried Veno's Lightning Cough Cure. I got a 9 £ d. bottle and in a week he was quite cured, and I cannot tell you how gratful I am for your wonderful remedy.

METHODISM; AT BANGOR. Mrs H. G. Vincent, Bangor's Lady Mayoress, on Wednesday opened at the old Tabernacle Chapel, Bangor, a, bazaar in ai-d of the chapel building fun# Mr Trevor, the Lady Mayoress's brother, in the, absence of the Mayor, spoke on behalf of the Lady Mayoress, 'and in the course of an interesting address said that one had to go back a, hundred years to come at the beginning of the 'Calvinistic Methodist cause in Bangor. In the year 1802 eight persons sat in the bar parlour of the Virgin Inn, Bangor, now known as the Albion Hotel, and it, was those eight per- sons who started tihe Welsh Calvinistic Methdoist cause in Bangor.
TENDER-HEARTED COLLECTOR. A CLERK S PROTEST. The rate collector for the horough of Comvay, Mr T. Ai. Jones, summoned a burgess to the Police Court on Monday for non-payment of rates. Mr James Porter, the magistrate's clerk, pointed out that the summons was only issued on Fiiiday, and went on to slfite; to the Bench that this collector suffered from an excess of tenderness of heart. lie deferred taking proceedings to the very last minute, and gave more trouble in the office of the justices' c.'erk than any otiu-T collector. The other collectors in the division acted regularly. They laid their informations and took out their sum- monses, and the cases came in due course before the Court. But it was not so in the case of Conway. He did not like to refuse to issue the summonses for Mr Jones, because generally they were asked for on a six months' limit, and if the summonses were not issued there would be trouble and money would be lost to the authorities whom this gentleman repre- sented. But a certain amount of routine had to be pursued, and the books and lists had to be prepared. It was not, fair to serve a defendant with a summons two days before the Court, for if the person summoned had a defence he would not have time to prepare it. He (Mr Porter) had complained of this to Mr clones, who did not appear to take any notice; and in future, unless their Worships directed otherwise, he would decline to issue sum- monses in this meteor-like way. The Chairman (Dr. Prichard) The Bench is of opinion that Mr Porter is per- fectly right, and they direct that a re- presentation be made to the authorities you represent. In future Mr Porter is not to issue the summonses so late as the Friday before the Court. Mr T. M,. Jones said it happened that the last two or three cases were, urgent cases in which he could not help himself. In the case in question he did not know anything of the position of the ratepayer until last week. The person would have been summoned along with others possibly this month. But if he had an urgent case ) he brought it in before that time. The bailiffs were in or he would not have summoned. Mr James Porter That is what I com- plain of. He leaves them until ic is past the eleventh hour .-(Laughter.)
A COLLIER'S DRINK BILL. A Mostyn grooer had taken out a County Court judgment against a. Point of Ayr collier, and the summons came before Judge Moss at Holywell County Court on Tuesday, when the plaintiff informed his Honour that the defendant earned the best wages in the colliery—over £ 2 a, week, but, he was sorry to say he spent from 18s. to £ 1 a week of it on drink.
"The Great Investment," published this week by The Walter Scott Publishing Co., Ltd., is mainly a, collection; of essays, ethical and religious, by an anonymous author. The reflective student, of what may be termed Modern Evangelism will perhaps find in these essays interesting I trains of thought hitherto but sparsely pursued.
THE NEW BEEF TEA. In Fluid Ju-Vis (the New Beef Tea), you get about double value for money as compared with the usual Fluid Beef Extracts. Fluid Ju-Vis is equally nutritious, being prepared solely from Beef, with valuable vegetable additions. It makes delicious rich gravies, or a Cup of Strong Beef Tea for a penny.

ALLEGED WIFE DESERTION. At the Conway Police Court on Mon- day, before Dr. R. A. Prichard and other magistrates, Sarah Williams., wife of a plasterer named R,. J. Williams, charged her husband with deserting her, and claimed a separation order and main- tenance. She stated that her husband came home tipsy on June 13th, created a disutrbance, and then left her. He had not returned. Cross-examined by Mr Chamberlain, who appeared for the de- fence, the woman staled that she married Williams two years ago. She had five children by her previous husband, and none since the present marriage. When he worked her husband gave her the whole of his wages. Mr Chamberlain said he could not deny the desertion, but the woman, he said, had run Williams into debt. He could not live with her, and he had had to advertise that he would not be responsible for debits contracted by her. A great deal of sympathy was felt for the man, but he (Mr Chamberlain) had advised him that she wa,s his wife, and he must make pro- vision for her. If the allowance was too heavy the man would have no alternative but to leave the country. The Bench made an order directing the defendant to pay his wife 3s. a week.

METALLIC! EMBROIDERIES. It was the opinion of modistes in the spring that we hould speedily weary of rretallic embroideries, out a glance rouji shopland soon convinces us that we have not. done so yet. The show of metallic em- broideries in evidence three surpass any- thing in this direction we have hitherto seen, and the demand for this particular variety of tiiiiiiiiing, is greater' than ever before. We have bright and dull gold, bright and dull silver, copper, platinum, and aluminium, but the dull and the ap- parently tarnished devices lead. THE ALL, BLAlOK HAT. There is quite a craze this Xmas for the I all-black hat, for dressy afternoon wear. The hat itself is usually of a very light open-looking persuasion, and trimmed 1 with tulle, chiffon, or net, huge weeping- willow plumes, and a quantity of beauti- fully-cut, jet. There is no doubt that the all-black hat is very smart looking, and tha-t it possesses the undoubted advantage of going well with any costume, still there are many to whom it, is certainly not be- coming, and who would do better to re- lieve the tulle by placing beneath it a roll of silver tissue or adding a touch of colour in the shape of one huge rose, or chrysan- themum. CHRISTMAS PUDDING. Thee is no doubt, that the average house- wife crowds too many good things into her Xmas pudding, and in laddirtQün to mounting up unnecessary expenses, she thereby runs a very considerable, risk of laying up for all who partake of it an attack of biliousness or indigestion. The following recipiei is an excellent, one, yet the pudding is delicious and quite as rich as is good for the majority of us. Take, lib. flour, lib. 6oz. breadcrumbs, lilbs. beef suet, 'l:&-lhs Demer ar a sugar, lib. very 4 finely shredded mixed candied peel, 3-^lbs. stoned and halved raisins, 21bs-. currants, 1 nutmeg, and rind of two lemons grated, 9 eggs, 2 wpneglassiful each of cooking sherry and brandy. This mixture makes about 9 small puddings, each of which should be steamed 7 hours.
