Flintshire County Council. The annual meeting of the Flintshire County Council was held at Mold on Friday. There was a large attendance. ELECTION OF CHAIRMAN, VICE- CHAIRMAN AND COMMITTEES. Alderman J. L. Muspratt was unanimously re-elected chairman, on the motion of Dr. Easterby, seconded by Ald. Herbert Lewis, M.P. Dr. Easterby was also re-elected vice- chairman. The twelve gentlemen elected to serve on the Standing Joint Police Committee were all Liberals, the only change being the substitution of Mr. Richard Jones, Connah's Quay, the Rev. Joseph Davies Buckley, and Mr. Robert Jones, Llanas»; in place of Alderman James Reney, Alderman Wm. Davies, and Mr. Wm. Thomas, who have been placed on the commission of the peace. PARISH COUNCILS ACT. With reference to the Parish Councils Act, Mr. Herbert Lewis, M.P., explained that the regulations would shortly be issued by the Local Government Board, and moved that immediately on their receipt copies be sent to every member of the council, and special meeting be held to consider the situation.—The motion was carried. THE MILITARY AND THE COAL STRIKE. It appeared that the Standing Joint Committee had decided to make an allowance of £ 43 10s., to the military for their services during the recent coal a! rike.- Mr. Lloyd Ellis questioned whether the payment would be a legal one. He was informed that the Denbighshite County Council had considered it illegal.—The Clerk (Mr. Kelly) said that inasmuch as the outlay was for the preservation of peace and property, it was legal.—Mr. Elwy Williams (Rhyl) asked whether it was within the authority of the Standing Joint Committee to vote this money away. He questioned whether it was. He did not begrudge the officers and soldiers the money but he failed to aoe that the majority of the ratepayers would derive any benetit from the payment. The coal proprietors benefited, as they were able to carry on their works, and draw immense prices for coal, putting thousands and thousands into their pockets. He proposed that they should make a present, through the Chief Constable, to the officers and soldiers of X30, and that the Chief Constable should ask those people who had benefited so much to makf up the difference.—The Clerk ruled that if that were carried it would be entirely illegal.—Mr. G. A. Parry (Buckley) said it seemed to him that all some gentlemen had in view Was to pnnish the magistrates for calling out the military and to punish the colliery owners for making large profits —Mr. Llew. Jones, Rhyl, said there was no necessity for calling out the military, except in the interests of a few colliery proprietors in order try enable them to work, to obtain high prices for coal, and to get lid of sheer rubbish as coal at that time. He did not begrudge the money to the soldiers, but he wanted an appeal made to the colliery pro- prietors who made hundreds and thousands of pounds during the strike. Dr. Edwards pointed out that extra police from neighbouring counties would have cost considerably more than the military did.—The Clerk stated that they had no right to interfere with the decision of the Standing Joint Committee, and the matter dropped. PECULIAR TITHE DISPUTE. The Clerk reported that he had written to Mr H. T. Smith, solicitor, Holywell, asking what his clients would take in discharge of the annual claim of tithe in respect of land forming portion of a highway at Brynford, near Holywell. Mr. Smith replied that his clients would accept £ 10 in redemption of the tithe. The par value of tithe payable by the Council was 6s. 2d. per annum. Mr. Smith added that his instructions were of a very peremptory character (laughter), and unless the money was agreed to be paid, he was to proceed at once, as his clients were determined not to be put off by the Council.— Mr. Elwy Williams proposed that they offer without prejudice S6 in redemption of the tithe. —Mr. James Evans suggested that they should pay the tithe instead of paying a lump sum, because he believed disestablishment was within sight (hear, hear). He did not think they would stand true to their colours as Liberals and Nonconformists by compromising the matter.—Lord Kenyon pointed out that the clerk had told them they would lose the action and the ratepayers' money as well.—Mr. Elwy Williams' motion was put to the meeting and lost, and finally the Council decided to go to law, and instruct Mr. Alun Lloyd to fight the action in their behalf. THE LATE MR. JOHN ROBERTS. The Chairmrn moved a vote of condolence with the family of the late Mr. John Roberts, who represented Flint faithfully for fifteen years. Mr. Pennant remarked that he had always found Mr. Roberts a most steadfast opponent, but a gentleman in every respict.-The vote was passed. THE LICENSING QUESTION IN FLINTSHIRE. Alderman R. Howard proposed—" That the limited discretion vested in justices with regard to the renewal or refusal of beerhouse licences which were in existence previous to 1869 is anomalous, and not conducive to the public interest, and that legislation removing such anomaly is urgently needed." He remarked that it was the duty of the Council to support their member (Mr. Lewis) who had brought in a bill to remove this anomaly. He failed to see why, if a house was proved to be unnecessary, it was less unnecessary because it had existed since 1869. That appeared to him to be rather a reason for suppressing it than continuing it. The question of compensation was apt to influence some of the weak-kneed members of the licensing trade, but the highest tribunal in the land had decided that no compensation was necessary. If they were going to compensate, let them compensate all round. Let the publican compensate all wives he had ruined, all the men he had been the means of sending to gaols and asylums, and the countries which he had put to the expense of maintaining people who were impoverished by the drink traffic. On the Licensing bench he had noticed with indignation a leaning to the side of the publican and his well-wisher. If a teetotaller was a fanatic, was not a drunkard a fanatic ? while as for the man who called him- self himself a moderationist he was an unde- finable animal (laughter).- Alderman Reney seconded, and Mr. Lewis explained that his bill was an exceedingly moderate one. The question of compensation did not enter into it at all, and although it did not go so far as some people would wish, it was a step in the right direction. The resolution was unanimously carried. FLINTSHIRE CHARITIES. The following motion proposed by Mr. Lewis and seconded by Alderman Wm. Jones (Holy- well) was carried unanimously:—"That the Council take into consideration the advisability of arranging with the Charity Commissioners and the Treasury to have a complete investiga- tion of the parochial charities of Flintshire."

THE ROYAL VISIT TO WALES. On Friday, a public meeting was held in the Grand Pavilion, Rhyl-oonvened at the request of the Exeootive Committee of the National Eisteddfod —to consider what steps rhoul 1 be taken to give the Prince and Princess of Wales a fitting reaeption on the occasion of their visit to the Welsh National Eisteddfod of 1894, to be held at Caruarvon in July. There was a large and representative attendance. Mr. H. R. Hughes, of Kinmel, being the senior Lord-Lieutenant present, was votai to the chair. Mr. Greaves (Lord-Lieutenant of Carnarvonshire) proposed—" That this meeting reoords its great gratification at the proposed visit of their Royal Highnesses the Prince and Priocens of Wales to the Principality" (applause). It would, he trat-ted, be fully and clearly reoogniaed that their Royal Highnesses in eoraiog to Wales were not honouring the Eisteddfod at Carnarvon alone, but that they were endeavouring tosbow their sympathy with the national tastes, pursuits, and aspirations of the Welsh people as a whole, and to identify themselves with Wales-with a country which, though small, was by no means the least brilliant jewel in the Imperial Crown (applause). They ought to do all they could to give their Royal Highnesses an enthusiaiti", a fitting, and right Royal reoeption (cheers). The Hon. F. G. Wynn (High Sheriff of Car- narvonshire) seconded the resolution. The Bishop of St. Asaph, who received an ex- oeed;ngly warm reoeption, spoke in support of the motion. Whatever they were in Wales, either Churchmen or Nonconformists, they would always be Welsh in their weloome to their Queen and her family (applause). Sir John Puleston proposed—"That a national reception be given to their Royal Highnesses on the occasion, and that a committee, consisting of the lord-lieutenants, high sheriffi), members of Parliament, chairmen of quarter selisione, and of the oouuty councils in Welsh counties, the Constable and Deputy-Constable of Carnarvon- shire, together with the Executive Committee of the National Eisteddfod and the Town Council of Carnarvon, with power to add to their Dumber, be empowered to carry out necessary details." Mr. Issard Divies (Mayor of Carnarvon) seconded all chairman of the Executive Committee of the National Eisteddfod, There was, he said, no wish on the part of the committee to monopolise the honour conferred upon Wales by the visit; and it was earnestly desired to make the reoeption of their Royal gueats as wide and comprehensive as was the National Eisteddfod. Mr. Lumley (vice-chairman of the Denbighshire County Council) moved—"That a subscription list be opened to defray all expenses." Mr. Picton, M.P., seconded, and said that the national nature of the Eisteddfod should be sufficient to ensure that the reoep'ion would be worthy of the Royal visit (hear, hear). Mr. Issard Davies suggested that subscription forms should be handed round the room, and this was done, with the result that Z136 was promised, which, with £ 281 already oollected and promised, made a total at present of £ 417.—Mr. Davies next proposal that Mr. Lloyd Carter (Carnarvon) be appointed secretary, and Mr. Griffith Rees (Old Bank, Carnarvon) treasurer.-The motion was carried unanimously. Colonel Liddell (senior officer of her Majesty's foroes in North Wales) intimated that the troops of North Wales would at any tijpe be willing to evidenoe their loyalty if called upon (applause). Lord Penrhyn hoped that the coming Royal visit would leave behind it in the minds of their Royal Highnesses such a pleasant impression that a Royal visit to Wales would not in future be as rare an occurrence as in the past (applause). A vote of thauks to the chairman terminated the proceedings.

When Mr. Nuttall, the late Assistant Overseer for the parish of Newmarket, recently resigned his office it was the general wish of the parishioners that be should be presented with a token of their regard and esteem, and their appreciation of the oourtesy and kindness he had shown during the last 12 years; A committee was formed, with the Rev. Howell Davies, reotor, as chairman, Mr. Saville Nice, treasurer, and Mr. J. Roberta, Mostyn Arms-the new Assistant Overseer —secretary; and the result of their efforts was the purchase of a beautiful polished marble timepiece, surmounted by an elegent ornament. These were snpplied by Mr. C. Matthews, watch-maker and jeweller, High Street, Rhyl, and were greatly admired by all who saw them. The presentation took place at the Wynne's School on Friday, evening The rector presided, and, after congratulating Mr. Nutta'l on the good feeling shewn by the parish- ioners towards him, he, in most appropriate terms, made the presentation to Mr. Nuttall, who gratefully acknowledged the gift and kindness of the subscribers, and stated that he bad always striven to perform his duty to the beat of his abilities, and was aotuated solely by the wish to do some good to the parish. Mr. Hugh Jones, Min.ffordd, added his congratulations and stated that Mr. Nuttall fully deserved their present and their good wilhel for his future welfare. A few words were spoken by Mr. Jones, the sohools, who reminded the meeting of the good work done by Mr. Nuttall in connection with benefit concerts and similar means of aiding the poor and afflicted. A vote of thanks was aocorded to the reotor for presiding.
CANADA., 1894.-Ia a recent speech, when pre- senting the prizes at the Liverpool Institute, Lord Derby made some interesting remarks on the subject of emigratioL to Canada, from which colony he lately returned after serving the usual term of five years as Governor-General. The speech will well repay perusal, and its praotical nature and unbiassed tone make it espeoially valuable to those who are thinking of making their homes in the Dominion. The circumstances under which the address was given no doubt oaused Lord Derby to oonfina his remarks to a great extent to the openings that existed for boys and young men, and his opinion with regard to such may be summed up in one of his sentences: For an active, willing and in- telligent lad there was a fine and profitable field in Canada for his useful life." Another class is now addressed in a different way. The Minister of the Interior, the Hon. T. M. Daly, towards the end of last summer issued an invitation, through the High Commissioner in this country, to the tenant farmers in England, Scotland, Wales, and Ireland, to select from among their number a dozen representatives to proceed to the Dominion and report their impressions, This was done and the reports of these gentlemen are now ready for distribution, and can be had free from Mr. John Dyke, the Canadian Government agent at Liverpool. The Dominion Government gives every faeility to inquirers to ascertain the advantages which are offered in Canada and at their offices in Liverpool specimens of grain and other products can be inspected, and the Canadian statutes, Government returns, sessional papers, reports on trade, files of the leading Canadian newspapers, B?f ™a58 ™aT be consulted, and every information ° !n either by intending emigrants, those seeking investment, for capital, or those interested In ceroe r V NEURALGIC PAINS. 25, HKMIKK-Cakan ROAD, n .„ <J.p 'Vf J?AlG' Dec- 36th, 1890. 1 feel very thankful that such a precious remedy as your Quinine Bitters h;i.s Ix-'cn di.sctneiecl. Three years ago my little bov, who is now almost nine years of age, suffered greatly with his teeth, and often cried and screamed suddenly by night and day from the noiite pain he suffered in the nerves. We tried various prescriptions, but all in vain, and even the doctor could give him no lasting relief. At last, one of our neighbours told us that the cause of his suffer- ing so acutely was Weakness, and advised us to try Gwilym Evans' Bitters to strengthen him. We did so, and before he had com- pleted the second bottle a great change for the better was evident, and by continuing its use he rapidly improved, and soon got rid of the excruciating pain which caused him such great suffering. I heartily recommend parents to try it in cases of ailments of their children, especially in cases of Weakness. Yours sincerely, WM. D, LEWIS.

The monthly Council meeting of the North Wales Miners' Federation was held on Monday, at Wrex- ham, Mr. Thomas Hughes (Adwy) presiding, Mr. E. Hughes, of Point of Ayr, acting as segretary.-A discussion took place in reference to the reoent strike at the Lane End Colliery, Buckley.-From a state- ment made by Mr. Peters, the Flintshire agent, it appears that the Lane End men have struck against a reduotion of wages. A new system has been in- troduced, without giving the men notioe, whioh, if adopted, will affect the wages in the driving places nearly 30 per cent. and from 60 to 55 per oent. in the pillar or wide work places. There wai a strong feeling against any such change being introduced, and the hands at this colliery—100 men and 160 children-had struck work on the previous Tuesday. The employes were all federated, and after discussion it was resolved, on the motion of the Hafod colliery delegate, seconded by the Vauxhall delegate, and supported by Mr. Griffiths, Flint, that the Lane End men be supported in their action, and that they receive the usual strike pgy.-Amongst other resolu- tions agreed to were the following:—" That we ex- press our unqualified approval of the decision arrived at by the Home Secretary, that in future an inter- preter shall be engaged for the benefit of Welsh candidates who may from time to time compete for certificates of management in accordance with the Mines Regulation Aote, and at the same time express our opinion that, in appointing the same, preference should be given to btnA-Jld* miners who have already passed the first or second examination?.—"That this Council take the preseut opportunity of thank- ing the Right Hoo. W. E. Gladstone for his great services to the cause of labour generally, and for the lasting benefits conferred upon the country by his efforts to ameliorate the condition of the working classes, and to give to his fellow-man that freedom, justice and right that belongs to manhood and that we urge upon tin present Government to take the necessary stops to oradicate that irresponsible body, the House of Lords, who bear an unbroken record of opp )sition to all legislation intended for the benefit of the masses, and tend to make representation a farce, and that we beg to remind them that we are still uuauimously of the opinion that an eight- hour day for miners should be made compulsory by legislative enactment at the earliest oppor- tunity."—It was also resolved, on the motion of Mr. E. Peters (Flintshire agent), seconded by the VauxLall colliery delegate-II That we at a dis- trict meeting of the Flintshire and Denbighshire Federation of Miners, strongly coademn the actios of the House of Lords in opposing the amendment in the Employers' Liability Bill as passed in the Elouse of Commons and also that we hope the time is not far distant when the House of Lords will be amended or ended."—The Secretary (Mr. Samuel Roberts) reported an increase of 719 members of the Federation since the last Council meeting (applause). —The Brynmally delegate moved that the collieries in the Wrexham district be (reminded to follow the example set by the Wrexham and Aoton, the Westminster, and the Brynmally collieries, in making ooileotions in aid of the funds of the Wrexham Infirmary, an institution to whioh they were all more or less greatly indebted.—This was agreed to.-A discussion took plaoe in referenoe to presenting the agent with a testimonial, and it was resolved that when they had raised the membership of the Federation to 10,000, the agents receive an inorease of .£1 per week salary.—A vote of thanks to the Chairman concluded the business.

COOXBBY CrAss SOIBss.-On Friday evening last the members of the Cookery Clans at Bagillt closed their session with a soiree, to which a large number of friends were invited. The soiree was held in the girb' department of the Bagillt Board Schools. The arrangements for the first part-the knife and fork tea-were made with due regerd to the comforts of the gueat, and the various viands that graced the tables and which had been prepared by members of the class, looked exceedingly tempting. The truism the proof of the pudding is in the eating" was verified beyond doubt. The oookery reflected the highest credit upon the students, who bad brought the knowledge they had gained at the classes into use in providing the numerous delicacies. Thegueats were assiduously waited upon by Misses E. Jones (secretary), Edith M. Jones, M. Agnes Williams, L. Beattie, F. E. Williams, S. Williams, M. Davies, E. Parry, Roberts, Ac.—Mr. Samuel Davies, C.C., was the president of the proceedings and there were also present the Rev. J. O. Davies, Greenfield Mr. Thos. Hughes, Greenfield, Mr. Arthur Roberts, and several other gentlemen. After tea a party of girls prepared by Miss E. Jones, sang several choruses, including "The Cuckoo," "Excelsior," &o.—Mrj S. Davies at the commencement of the proceedings expressed the pleasure it gave him to be present, it was also a gratification to see the suooes- ful result of the class. Technical instruction in this country was gradually becoming the order of the day, its value in every respect to both sexes was being more and more recognised and it was pleasing to note that in seyerel directions Bagillt had added its quota to the popular recognition and appreciation of technics. Their future greatness as a nation in the commercial world depended upon the ability of their workmen at their trades and also of their work- women in the vastly increasing field of labour which was opening out to them, and for which in many respects they were excellently adapted. After taking a retrospective view of the technical classes in Bagillt, he said the Cookery Glasses had been their principal success. Their drawing class had done well and he hoped to see the day when other subjecti might be taken up and successfully carried out. Wales was receiving greater favours of late for the advancement of education than it bad ever done, and he beiieved that Welshmen when not handioapped would bear favourable comparison with any nationality. With a thorough course of teehnioal instruction, Welsh- men would be well able to do equal work with any other countryman. As the County Councils had been eo useful in the spreading and furthering of teohnioal education, he hoped that the Parish Councils when established would help on the work. The Rev. J. O. Davies and Mr. Tbos. Hughes gave short addresses on the praotical value of the classes, and congratulating the members of the cookery class upon the excellent manner they had demonstrated their knowledge. It showod they appreciated the efforts of the Eduoation Committee. The secretary (Miss E. Jones) also deserved a word of high com- mendation for the very happy arrangements she had made for their entertainment, The thanks of the meeting were aocorded Mr. Davies for presiding. A short farcical drama Irish servacts" was performed, in which the following took part Mr. J. Edward Parry, as "Mr. Ohomley" (a merchant); Mr. Foster Williams, as David Brian," Miss M. Agnes Williams, as 11 lgrs. Chomley" j Miss Beatrice Evans, as Martha Pratt," and Miss E. Jones, as "Sarah Pratt" (Irish servants) Miss Edith Jones, as "Bridget Frenoh," a buxom Irish girl newly imported. The pieoe was well performed and proved highly amusing. Miss Gratton Thomas and several other ladies played for dancing which was indulged in for a short time after the musical part had concluded. The proceedings olosed with the singing of the National Anthem.

HOLYWELL T. LLANDUDNO SWIFTS. This important fixture under the auspices of the North Wales Coast League, was set down for decision on Saturday last at Holywell, between the above-mentioned teams. The visitors, who hold so far, the title of League Champions, came down with an unbeaten record in league matches; Holywell on the other hand hold the fourth place, and are making battle with Bangor for the third position in the league table. Both teams were strongly represented and seemed determined to win, and although the much coveted two points would not he of very great use to the homesters as regards altering their position, they determined upon having first honors in taking the champions down. The day was all that could be desired, and the ground was in the best condition. When the game com- menced there was fully 500 spectators present. Holywell won the toss, and played with the sun at their backs. The Swifts centre set the ball in motion, and both teams went to work in earnest. The home forwards bore down upon the Swifts goal and soon Hill had to fist out a shot. 'Hands' against Holywell in midfield gave the Llandudno men advantage, the ball travelled towards the home goal. A throw-in for the Swifts close in, resulted in the ball going out of play. From the goal-kiok the Swifts were again on the attack, and from a pass from their right wing across the mouth of goal, the ball came bouncing past several of the home players (who seemed unable to get at it), to the left wing from where it was safely landed in the net. The Swifts scoring after about seven minutes play. From the centre kick the home forwards went for the Llandudno goal, and soon it was the ticene of a desparate forimmage on the goal line during which the Llandudno right back deliberately hit the ball out as it was going through. The homesters appealed for a penalty kick, but the Referee ruled against them. This decision was met with hoots and yells from the crowd. This reverse had its effect on the home forwards. The Swifts on the other hand played up grandly. They soon forced a corner, the ball being nicely placed in the net with- out touohing another player. From the goal-kiok the ball travelled at a rapid pace from goal to goal. The Swifts centre seemed to have the goal at his meroy, but failed to take advantage of it and there- fore lost the chance. The home custodian was cheered for a good save, then the Llandudno end was visited, but their baoks were safe. After about 30 minutes play the Llandudno left wing had a run and managed to get in their centre, which resulted in a second goal being notched. A minute or two later a third point was obtained. Holywell made off for the visitors goal and were rewarded a corner which was got away. The homesters were again on the attack, but could not find an opening, the ball altogether oominginto contact with an opponents head, leg or foot, in its course anywhere near the goal. However, half time arrived with the Swifts leading by 3 goals to nil.—The second half opened with an attack by Holywell, their left wing being prominent. They soon forced a corner, but Llan- dudno packed their goal, and the ball was cleared. The Swifts now had a turn their right wing doing the play, and after a short time the insids right from a free-kick for hands beat Williams for the fourth time. From the centre kiek th6 homo men tried again to brenk through, but the Swifts backs were all there and cleared away anything that looked dangerous. The Swiits were again in tho soriag muod, and quickly put on two paints more and the end came with the champions still unbeaten, the seore being— LLANDUDNO SWIFTS, 6 goals; HOLYWELL, 0.
NORTH WALES COAST ASSOCIATION. To the Editor of the "Flintshire Observer," SIB.—Some time ago one of your correspondents, wrote, through the medium of your columns, invest- ing suggestions with regard to forming an ''Association of Football Clubs" for the North Wales Sea Coast. I presume he means an Asociltton of Football Clubs, for mutual protection and benefit; or does he in any way wish to have a separate Association Council, to run on lines similar to the present Welih Association, which has its centre at Wrexham, fearing to mis-interpret his requirements, I would like him to again point out what he means by a North Wales Coast Aasooi ation. -Yours etc., HOKB RULE.
TO DR. T- iEsculapius mighty in the art Of healing, but envied and hated much By Jupiter, for his good deeds and skill, And restoring Hippolotus the ohaste, To life, all his acts were great and good Yet has he left behind for days to oome Disciples to assuage the pains of life; Among a host we find in this remote age Doctor T-- who stands benign and kind, To commiserate with his fellow beings In all their bodily and mental ails, With patience ligtel, to their tales of woe," As be himself were the patient grave, And thus exemplify the Healer great That man afflicted" is better than a sheep." A man so resolute and with robust health, Has noble gait, erect with courage full, To bear the burdens of this chequered life, His words command respect and due weight, In many ciroles where he manly moves, And his kind acts and divers merits are Lauded by sleek syohophanta not a few, But when the hale and gifted though he be Becomes enfeebled and of shattered frame, Those he befriend forget his timely help, With coolness and disrespeot now they treat, Their once instructor and in need friend Instances we have, alas, not so rare Of Professors learned in the "divine art," Sorely lack in warm, sympathetic words, To raise the drooping spirit over-cast, As with medicine the body weak to heal; Our Doctor well versed in the laws of health, Is kind and gentle, but firm and wise, Enlivens, thug, the weak with faith and hope, To be restored to years of joy and health; Long years may he be spared to serve his race, And when he bids adieu to this world of death, May he dwell in peace, where doctors are unknown; The land of life and light, with perfect joy. Havod Alun. GWILYK GWBNFFBWD.
SIRS. ssoi'PEif: Let me see something to dress goods." Mr. Tape Yes'm, what kind can 1 show you ?" Mrs. Shopper Oh, I'm not particular at fcll. It's only for a kind of a knock-about dress that [ want it. Most anything will do. But, of course, I don't want it too light or too dark, something about medium. No, I don't want a stripe, I never wear stripes. Something in No, I don't think I'd care for a plaid, and the checked piece is of rather betler quality than I'd like for such a dress. I'd like some- thing at from fifty to sixty, or, perhaps, sixty-five cents a yard. No, I don't want anything with a polka dot in it, nor a tricot, nor serge, nor cashmere. It rather not have a solid colour at all. No, that piece is hardly as good as I'd like, although I'm really not at all particular about it, as it is to be worn fc* common still, I think I'll just run over to Ribbon & Satten's and see what they have." MAJOR M'TAVISH Mr. Fitch, I want you to know the Rajah of Cawnpore, one of our most eminent disciples of Brahma." Mr. Fitch (of Illinois): Proud to meet you, sir It's th' best breed that ever laid an egg." MAMIE: I can't imagine why Clara's room always smells so of arnica." Louie: Why den't you know P She is engaged to the captain of the football Warn, and arnica always reminds her of him."
"IT TOUCHES THE SPOT." Aye, that is what HOMOCEA" does. And does it quickly, too—whether it's a toothache or neuralgia, with all their shooting pains, or eczema, with its painful and distressing irritation—or piles, that make thousands of lives wretched. Rheuma- tism in the joints or muscles has been cured even of years' sbwcling-while for cuts, burns, and bruises it's far, very far, ahead of any ointment that has ever been put before the public. LORD CARRIGK says HOMOCEA cured him of bleeding piles, when all else failed; that he gave some to a labourer who was lamed by a stone falling upon him, whom it cured. A woman had a pain in the elbow and could not bend it for a year, and it cured her, and another used it for scurvy on her leg, and it was doing her good-one letter closes from him with the words, It is the most wonderful stuff that I ever came across." LORD COMBERMERE says HOMOCBA did him more good than any embrocation h, had ever used for rheumatism.
TESTIMONIAL FROM THE GREAT AFRICAN EXPLORER, HENRY M. STANLEY. Whitehall, London "Dear Sir,—Your oint- ment, called HOMOCBA, was found to be the most sooth- ing and efficacious unguent that I could possibly have for my fractured limb, as it seems to retain longer than any other, that oleaginous- ness so requisite for perfect and efficient massage. The fault of embrocations, gene- rally, is that they harden and require warmth, where- as yours, besides being particularly aromatic, is as soft as oil, and almost instantly mollifying in the case of severe inflammation.-Yours faithfully, HENRY M. STANLEY." Remember that HOMOCEA subdues inflammation and allays irritation almost as soon as applied. All wholesale houses stock HOMOCEA. It can be obtained from Chemists and others at Is; licl. or 2s. 9di per box, or will be sent by post for Is; 3d. and 3s. from the wholesale agency, 21, Hamilton Square, Birkenhead.
