THURSDAY. Before Mr D. DAVIES and Mr H. J. SIMPSON. EARN MONE): LIKE HORSES-SPEND IT LIKE FOOLS. Patrick Murray, a marine fireman, found on two occasions in a drunken and disorderly condition, after being paid off the previous Monday, in the streets of Barry, appeared on charges of drunkenness and disorderly conduct on Monday, and drunkenness and assaulting Police-constable King on Tuesday. Police- constable King requested him to move away from Dock View-road, where he was behaving in a very unseemly manner. He turned upon the constable and hit him in the filce, and then tried to bite him.—The Bench remarked that it was a pity defendant could not take better care of his bard-earned money, and fined him 15s including costs. COACHMAN AT THE BAR. John Archer, in the service of Mr Thomas, of the Bear Hotel, Cowbridge, was fined 10s for leaving his horse and cart in the street un- attended while he went into the bar of a local hotel. WHY NOT GOOD LANGUAGE F George Jenks was summoned for being dis- orderly. Police-constable Herbert Evans' evidence was given to the effect that Jenks was seen on October 7th, nearly midnight, usi g bad lan- guage. Respectable people, on hearing the language, pulled down theii windows. Mr David Davies Why don't you uae good language; it is quite as easy. Defendant: There was a bit of a row on, sir. Mr David Davies: I think it's as bad as anything a man can do to use bad language. You will be fined os, or seven days. FEMALE DRUNKENNESS. The proportion of female drunkenness at Barry is disgraceful and alarming. Women, many of respectable appearance, came up, and without a blush acknowledged the offences against them, viz., that tkey were guilty of drunken and disorderly conduct. Ellen Burford was fined 5s a warrant was issued for the compulsory attendance of Clara Esther; Maria O'Keefe was also fined 5s; and Margaret O'Brien and Mary Davies, two Swan- sea women, were each fiued 10s, or seven days' imprisonment. COMPREHENEZ VOU8 A foreigner named Leargis was placed in the dock charged with being drunk. When the charge was made against him he maintained a stolid, immovable countenance as if he did not hear what had been said. Mr David Davies: You don't understand the language or the strength of the beer here You have had a night's lodgings iu the cells, and you SOltU De tree now. The foreigner picked up his ears at this, smiled, and walked off. He understood.
FIRE AT BARRY DOCK. TIMBER YARDS ENDANGERED. Shortly before seven o'clock on Saturday evening a fire broke out which at first threatened to envelop the whole of the Ipacioul timber yards of Messrs Watson, at Barry Deck. The outbreak was discovered among some loose lath- chippings near the stable. It soon gained a hold on the stable building, but the horses were removed in safety. Captain Jones, deputy dock- master, and a large number of dock employees, promptly tackled the fire with two of the Barry Company's tugs, and a plentiful supply of water. The flames were prevented from spread ing to the contiguous huge stacks of timber, but the entire stable building and lath-uiaking shed were destroyed. The town police, with the new fire engine, arrived on the scene, but their services were not required, this being the first time that the engine has been taken to any fire. The damage is estimated at several hundred pounds.
SOUTH WALES TEMPERANCE ASSOCIATION. LAST WEEK'S CONFERENCE. At the conference of the South Wales and Monmouthshire Temperance Association held at Barry Dock on Thursday in last week, the Rev W. T. Morris, Pontypridd, presided over the morning meeting, and T. Jones-Parry, Llanelly, Breconshire, in the afternoon. Among the deputations introduced were the Rev Ben Evans, on behalf of the Welsh Congregational TTnioa and the Rev L. Ton Evans, on behalf of the Baptist Union. GOTHENBURG CRITICISM BY LOCAL GENTLEMEN. A motion was moved by the Rev J. Tertius Phillips, condemning the Gothenburg and aU other systems which made local authorities and trusts interested in the liquor traffic, seeing that such efforts hindered, rather than helped, temperance reform.—In the course of the dis- cussion, the Rev T. Pantiy John, Barry Dock, strongly criticised the attitude of tke rector of Barry, who, he said, declared at the licensing sessions at Ba ry, in giving evidence in favour of a Gothenburg licence for a new hotel at Dinas Po-vis, that be would not support an application for the foisting of an additional licence on the village, and yet he was actually one of the promoters of a new licence. 'I hn attempt on the part of the promoters of thi- application was not, in his opinion, an hone-t attempt at temperance reform. -The Rev D. H Wiliiams, M.A., moved an amendment that no opinion be expressed on the Gothenburg system, but a general resclution be adopeed.— This was seconded by the Rev Ben Evans, and the Rev W. Williams (Cadoxton), Mr James Cruise, Mr S. R. Jones, and Mr J, Evans, all confessed, with many others, that there was a lack of information on the working of the Gothenburg system, and many did not take part in the voting, wnich, however, resulted in the resolution being adopted. OTHIR RESOLUTIONS. Other resolutions included one making th" improvement in the tone and action of very many licensing authorities throughout the country in respect of new licences; favouring the Children's Bill; calling upon the public to protest against magistrates interested in tb. liquor traffic from acting on the licensing bench; favouring the extension of education on temperance to our hoard schools; and em- phnsing the remarks of his Honour Judge Wi Iliams that prosecutions against publicans! were entirely disproportionate to the number n: pro seoutions against persons for drunkenness in I the county of Glamorgan. t3 NEXT YEAR'S CONFERENCE. It was decided to hold next years conference at Abersychan. ELECTION OF OFFICERS. On the motion of the Rev Morris Morgan, seconded by the Rev Aaron Da vies, J. P., Alderman Thotras Williams, J.P Gwaelodv- garth, president for 16 years, was re-elected. Other officers were selected as follows;- Treasurer, Dr R. T. Williams, Cwmavon chairman of executive (in succession to thp II1.It Alderman J. Jones-Griffiths, J.P.), Mr W. L. Daniel, Merthyr; hon. secretary, tiev Thomas Morgan, Cardiff; secretary and orginimer, R..v Morris Morgan, Swansea. Amongst vice presidents accepted on the recommendation of the Executive Committee were Mr Alfred Thomas, M.A., and a large number of justices of the peace in the counties of South Wales. VOTES OF THANKS. Vot»s of cordial thanks were extended to tin local committee for their admirable provision for the conference, and the hon. secretarifs (Rev n. H. Williams, M.A., and Mr R. T. Rvans) replied, while the authorities of the English Baptist and Tabernacl Chapelt were thanked for granting free use of their building?, and the ladies who assisted at the tea and luncheon were also gratefully thanked. WOMEN'S CONFERENCE. In the afternoon a women's conference took place at Tabernacle Chapel, Barry Dock, Mrs Nicholas, uf Newport, presiding. Resolutions were passed in reference to the million pledge scheme (moved by Mrs Miles, Aberdare, an i seconded by Mrs Ware, Cardiff), and the Children's Bill (moved by Miss Meredith, Barry Dock, and seconded by Mrs Jones, of Barry, and supported by Mrs Williams, Miss Bray, and Mrs James, Bairy Dock). PUBLIC MEETINGS. In the evening public meetings were held at Barry, Barry Dock, Cadoxton, St Athan, and Llantwit Major respectively, at which delegates delivered addresses. -7,

BAR LlY IMPORTS. FIRST CARGOES FOR THE WARE- HOUSE. PROSPECTS OF A BIG TRADE. During the past few days smail coasting steamers have landed general cargoes at Barry new dock from Bristol and Swansea for the purpose of having them placed in the spacious warehouses of the Barry Rail- way Company. The goods all belong to Messrs Elder, Dempster and Co., of Liver- pool, who intend making Barry a distribut- ing centre for merchandise intended for export by their steamers. These are the- first cargoes received into the new ware- house, and the fact that Mesrs Elder Dempster have decided to send goods here is a satisfactory assurance ef the future of the warehouses, and will give a decided filip to the import trade.
BARRY SCHOOL MANAGEMENT. REPORTS ON THE VARIOUS SCHOOLS. CORPORAL PUNISHMENT. Mr John Lowdon, J.P., chairman, pre- sided over a meeting of the School Manage- netit Committee of the Barry School Board on Thursday evening in last week, the other members present being Captain R. Davies (vice-chairman), Rev F. J. Byrne. Dr W. Lloyd Edwards, Mr John Rees, and Mr D. Lloyd. MONTHLY REPORT OF SCHOOLS. This report set forth the percentage of attendance in the various schools under the Board. At Cadoxton Boys the increase on registers was 60 in girls' department 51 and infants 69, the lowest being declared to be very poor. Miss Evelyn Wilcox, one of the pupil teachers, has gained a senior certi- ficilte of the Welsh Central Board. In Hannah-street Boys the increase on the ragisters was 50. The report on this school stated The children admitted from the infants' school are reported to be in a de- plorable condition. It is pointed out that the work is of special diffi- culty owing to the number of children of weak intellect who attend." In the girls' department the increase was 94. Owing to the size of Stantard II., there being 63 names on the register, it is sug- gested that the class be divided, and another teacher appointed. In the infants, where the increase was 42, it was suggested that as the lower classes were large the Board appoint a "new" teacher; probably the report means an additional teacher. Clive-road Mixed—increase 34, and infants 36. Mr Legard visited this department on the 12th September, and recommend that both galleries in the class-rooms should be dis- pensed with, a slightly stepped floor to be substituted in one case and a flat floor in the other- the baby-room. At Romilly-road girls'the increase was 174, but the heating c;1 arrangements of the Jubilee Hall do not! appear to be satisfactory in view of the coming winter. In the infants' department there was a decrease of 78. At Palmers- town-road the decrease was one. In this place the autumn term schemes of work are now in operation, and several class walks have been taken since the holidays." At Barry Boys' fcxluol the increase was 68. Mr Legard visited this department on Sep- tember 12th, but complained of over- crowding, especially of the room occupied bv Standards 6 and 7. The temporary room was re-arranged, and is now occupied by the two divisions of Standard 4, to the relief of Standards 6 and 7. At Barry Infants' School the decrease is 23. At Holton Boys' the increase is 100; at the girls' school 46 and in the infants the decrease was 223. On the afternoon of September 6th the atten. dance fell 43, owing to the holiday in the boys' and girls' departments. "The ex perience has always been (the report states) that infants wll not attend school when the upper departments are closed." CORPORAL PUNISHMENT. Dr W. Lloyd Edwards gave notice of a motion that all teachers in infant schools be warned against exercising corporal punish- ment, and that any case brought to the notice of the Board would be met severely. Dr Edwards now, however, stated that such a resolution was already on the books of the Board. That resolution ordered a circular to be sent deploring the amount of corporal punishment in infant schools, and asking them to cease from exercising it. The Clerk Yes and if you remember, we pointed that out to Sir John Gorst. Dr Edwards: Then the Board may re- issue the circular. This was agreed to CHILDREN KEPT IN THE RAIN. Mr D. Lloyd hoped that something would be done so that children should not be kept outside the schools in the wet until 9. 1 A in the morning. The Chairman What school do you refer to? Mr Lloyd: Cadoxton Infant-' R.ion]. The Chairman We must ask Lile clerk to draw the attention of the head-teacher to the regulation of the Board that the school must be opened before nine o'clock, and tell her at once to see that this is done. Dr Edwards: I suggest that the clerk telephone in the morning. The Chairman The clerk had better get Z5 an explanation. POILING STATIONS FOR THE ELECTION. The Chairman said there was a matter which the deputy rate collector (Mr W. C. Howe) had mentioned to him. They were entitled to five polling stations at the forth- coming election, but if they had very few more on the register they should have a sixth. What was said was that if the Board desired to have a polling station on Barry Island, and if they wrote to him, he would write to the Board of Education asking this to be allowed. Of the five, three will be at Barry Dock, but they should have one on the Island also. Captain Davies I certainly think that we should have a polling station on the Island. Dr W. Lloyd Edwards I propose that we ask for it. Mr John Rees seconded—Carried,
BARRY UNIONISTS V. PORTH. CUP-TIE TO BE RE-PLAYED. BARRY PRUTEST UPHELD. Our special correspondent Forward," in the last issue predicted the certainty of the protest made by Barry against the match versus Porth being counted as a cup-tie, and it is satisfactory to learn that a Thursday's meeting of the Welsh Association at Wrex- ham, the protest was held to unalidate the mntch, which was ordered to be replayed on Saturday next at Barry. Representations were made by Barry before the game started, and this view was upheld by the referee, who confirmed the measurement of the field of play. Porth, on the other hand, while not seeking to dispute the accuracy of these statements, declared that they had insuffi- cient time to prepare for the contest. A writer in an evening contemporary, which is little read or seldom ever seen in Barry, says it is a pity that Barry could not take their defeat like sportsmen. Such namby-panbyism is ridiculous on the face of it, for Barry laid their objection prior to the game being started, and the result to them could not possibly affect the issue. If Barry had won the match would still have to be replayed, and in the midst of so much nonsense con- tributed on football matters to the make-up jottings of an evening paper, it is a pity that first of all writers do not make themselves acquainted with the essential qualities of true sportsmanship. It was acknowledged by Barry folk in a very candid and sports- manlike way that on the day's form they were beaten, but that offers no excuse for the neglect of the Porth officials in not providing a proper ground. In the match on Saturday Barry will be strengthened probably. In any case they cannot do worse than they did at the hillside town, and the prediction is generally made that Porth will have to improve even on their excellent form of Saturday week to beat them. The Aberaman game showed Barry to be superior of the former by more than the single goal they were able to score, and the practice in combination afforded on the occasion will serve a good turn on Saturday. Our special correspondent, having seen both matches, declare that if Barry men make themselves fit," the match will be theirs. 7 = 7 =
A WORD TO OPEN-AIR WORKERS. BILE BEANS CURE THEIR COMMON AILMENTS. AN ODDFELLOWS' REMARKABE CASE. Working in the open-air, good in itself, does net necessarily imply immunity from these distressing ills, headache and constipation. iMr Henry Crocker. A dock labourer, < f 6, Dock-street, Cogan, Penarth, knows this to his cost; and the account of his complete restoration to health by the use of Chas Forde's Bile Bt-ans for Biliousness may materially help other sufferers by pointing them to a means of a permanent cur, Mr Crocker is prominently connected with the Manchester Unity of Odd- fellows.

I tried various ways of getting rid of ths ailment, but despite them all it grew on me, and became a constant source of illhealth. depressing my whole spirits.

WHAT THE DOCTORS SAY. a CAM OF NLPP&BS.—In oaring for the nip- ples of the nursing mother, great harm is often done by mistaken methods of eleansing. Nasty-tasting lotions should be avoided. No washes are allowable: olive oil or lanolin should be used instead. For a protecting dressing tallow and beeswax or the raw white of an egg should be freely applied. Cracks and excoriations will then be astonishing- ly infrequent, but if either torturing accident occurs, immediate attention is de- manded. After thoroughly disinfecting with boroacic acid lotion (5 per cent.), and anaesthe- tising with cocaine, the crack and raw surface should be treated with a 10 per cent. solution of silver nitrate, then dried by pressure of ab- sorbent cotton and painted over with egg-albu- men. For the next few nursings, a glass-bell nipple shield should be used. Thus, by scrupu- lous care, mothers can be saved from tortures that they too often suffer, and then it becomes far easier to persuade them to continue nursing their babies. JAUNDICE.—Treatment of simple jaundice is aa follows:—Take away starchy, saccharine foods, from the fact that these rapidly undergo decomposition where there is catarrhal condi- tion. Give mille with animal broths to start with, until the character of the stools has been changed. Next to diet, attend to digestion and bowels. To assist digestion use peptonised milk regulate bowels by minute doses of calomel. Do not give active cholagogues before there is some evidence that the bile is being discharged from the liver. Phosphate of sodium has one of the best effects on the catarrhal state of the mucous membrane of the stomach, bowels, and bile ducts, and will often open the duct when nothing else will-one-balf drachm dose every three hours.in half a teacupful ot warm water. When the bile begins to flow, a drastic cholagogue may be given. This it done by compound jalap powder. Nitro- muriatic acid should be given, well dilu- ted on an empty stomach—ten drops one hour before each meal. BEETLES.—Beetles are serious infliction, more especially in town houses, where the boarded floors provide a refuse for these un- pleasant insects, and no amount of cleaning will get rid of them once they have obtained a footing. They are fond of beer or porter, and can be caught in great numbers in the follow- ing manner:—Put half pint of strong beer or porter in an earthenware basin, place this on the floor and put five or six pieces of firewood, sloping round the basin, each piece touching each other. The beetles will crawl up the sticks in order to get to the porter, and fall in- to it, and will be unable to crawl out again, Beetle-traps upon .the same principle may be bought. A mixture for destroying them may be made by mixing two spoonsful of oatmeal with one of plaster of Paris, and two of moist sugar. Mix thoroughly, and place in the way of the beetles. Another mixture is paste made by mixing wheat flour with a little crude mer- cury and sal ammoniac, and made into a paste with honey.—The Family Doctor. BANANAS FOR NERVOUS DYSPEPSIA.—A lady who was recently so ill of nervous dyspepsia as to be in bed, and so thin that she gave up all hope of ever getting fat, secured a new doctor who used her for an experiment in diet. He placed her upon a strict regimen of bananas, nothing else. The result was marvellous. She grew to really like them, when prepared by baking and served with sugar and cream, or cold, in the form of delicate jelly. She also had banana fritters and biscuits made of banana flour. Daily she grew more plump and rosy, and now the is well, and expects to stay so, Bananas contain starch in its most easily assimi- lated form. Homoeopathic doctors have for some years called this tropical fruit unwhole- some, but it is only indigestible when unripe. Cooking is necessary to develop their valuable nutritive qualities. The cheapness of this cure is one of its oharms, for almost all treatment for weak nerves and poor nutrition is very ex- pensive. How TO RKAIN HEALTH.—If you wish to have health you should be regular in your habits, have a stated time for your meals, eat sparingly of plain, nourishing food and leave p<ir»Ujr nloue, abstain from 11.1 d.,nt apiritn and tobaooo, retire from the dinner table feeling a little hungry, bathe often and exercise in the open air when you can, as breathing the pure air gives life and strength, and retire to bed early, as a good night's rest gives the body a chance to recover the nervous wastes lost dur- ing the waking hours. There is no doubt that sleep is a prolonger of life, and is upheld as being of great assistance to the»rligc«tive organs and faculties. A long sleeper has a much better prospect of long life than a person who is satis- fied with naps. It is well known that the great cause of our bodily ailments is repletion-that is, eating a larger quantity of food than is wanted to supply the necessaries of the system. < < EARACHE.—The pain of the earache can be instantly relieved by putting a small mustard poultice on the head immediately behind the ear. A blister of emplastrum eantharides may also he used with the same effect. If, on the application of such a blister, the pain is not relieved,you may be sure that there is some- thing serious the matter with the ear, and sh< old lose no time in consulting an aural surgeon at one of the hospitals, if convenient. The insertion of it small piece of cotton-wool, saturated with laudanum tiiii sweet oil, in the cavity of the ear is often attended with bene- ficial results. Earache proceeds from more than one cause, and 11 e treatment depends upon the cause from which it proceeds. A cure depends wholly upon the possibility of re- mo ing the real cause. tt If MELANCHOLIA. — Melancholia, a mental dis- enso III which there is much depression of spirits, is often caused hy too prolonged dwell- ing on the grave concerns and problems of life, and it is sometimes cured by getting the person to give some attention to less serious matter. One patient, it is said, was cured by following the advice of his physician, who told him to get interested in sporting events another was 1) interesting himscl:' in his children, and studying their development. Another by going iuto the woods and limiting lfowers or minerals, and studying them. There is no end of means which ought to be used. Some are better adapted to one mind, and some to another. « < THL 'I'KMPERATURE OF THE BODY.—It is re- markable what slight variation there is in the temperature of the human body. The great peculiarity about the temperature in Ulell is its evenness under all conditions. Heat or cold causes but slight variation, and in man less than in other animals. In extremes that would be fatal to many animals man can endure and en- joy good health. We read of Arctic voyagers enduring a temperature ranging from 80 deg. to 90 deg.. and even 102 (leg. below zero, while, on tli(! (,tliei- ii:tnd, iii tii(,, (lui-iiig the greater part of t e year the temperature ranges from 106 iieg. to 110 (leg. above, and yet men enjoy good hi altli :n such varying temperature and the heat of their blood varies very little. « SEA BATHING.—Some persons who cannot bathe in fresh water can do so in the sea, the Balinc ingredients proline ng a more stimulating effect upon the skin. Hour, times, however, the stimulation goes so far as t > produce a painful rash, which forces the person to give np the oustom. As a general rule, iivo or six mlllutes immersion is sufficiently IOllg for all purposes. « » « FATIGUE.-Fittigt,e caused by brain work act8 as a poison which ;»!fe< ts all the organs, especially the muscular system. Sense of fatigue I BeCllIS to be due to the products of the nerve- cells rather than to deficiency of proper sub- stance.

Police Station for Cadoxton. ALLEGED DECREASE IN POPULATION. At the Glamorgan Standing Joint Police Committee on Monday, Mr 0. H. Jones, pre- siding, a sub-committee recommended that the surveyor be instructed to report on three sites suggested for the proposed new police station at Cadoxton. Alderman H. S. Davies ques- tioned whether a new police station wHs neces- sary, in view of the ftet that the population of Cadoxton had decreased by 2,500 or 3,000.- The Chairman As a matter of fact, there is no such decretise.-Aidertuaii Smith Davies said there were 550 houses empty that wt.re full 18 months ago. He moved that the matter be adjourned for 12 months. Substquently,; it being explained that the present station was insanitary, the amendment was withdrawn and the recommendation agreed to.
Forestry at Cadoxton. On Saturday evening at the the Royal Hotel, Cadoxton, a smoking concert was held in con- nection with Court Wenvoe Castle of the Ancient Order of Foresters. Dr O'Donnell presided. Mr J. W. Grosvenor, of Cardiff, and late of Cadoxton, was presented by the chair- man, on behalf of the members of the Order, with a High Chief Ranger's certificate and neck ribbon in recognition of his valuable services to the Court. Mr W. Pinniger (District Chief Ranger, Cardiff), delivered an address on the advantages of Friendly Societies, and said that young men should take care to join societies whose financial position was sound.

BARRY EDUCATIONAL SOCIETY. LECTURE BY MISS DODDS. A meeting of the Barry Educational Society was held last Monday evening, when there was a good attendance, especially of those connected with scholastic work in the district. The object of the meeting was to hear a lecture by Miss Dodds, of Owen's College, Manchester, upon The Educational Value of Fairy Tales and Sagas." The proceedings were presided over by Mr A. G. Legard, M.A., his Majesty s chief inspector of schools for Wales. In the course of an interesting and instructive lecture Miss Dodds said prominent educationalists differed as tÐ the value of fairy tales. It was the child's imagination that prompted Froebel to introduce his kindergarten system. Miss Dodds pointed out that imagination in the child was great, and required careful training. Fairy tales helped the child to be sympathetic and to form ideas. They greatly assisted the young to write poetry; in fact, they were the A B C of literature. Modern fairy tales should, except in the case of Hans Andersen, be rigidly excluded from the schoolroom. Fairy tales and sagas should be carefully selected, and those that terrified the child or suggested cunning should be modified or avoided. Child- ren rarely saw the philosophy of fairy tales, and it was not necessary that they should. In selecting sagas they should allow the children to have heroes of their own liking, and with fairy tales cculd also be introduced the study of natural history.—A discussion followed, and Miss Dodds was very warmly thanked for her lecture.
GLAMORGAN POLICE. INCREASE OF THE FORCE. At the annual 8P cial meeting of the Glamor- gan Standing Joint Police Committee held on Monday morning (Mr O. H. Jones presiding), the Chief Constable (Captain Lindsay) sub- mitted his annual report, which contained recommendations for additional police. It was resolved that an additional constable be ap- pointed for Penyard, Merthyr, and a sergeant for Penydarren, in place of the acting sergeant. A third constable was granted for Troedyrhiw, and a second constable for the Miskin beat, Mouutain Ash. The request for au additional constable at Aberdare was refused. In the Pontypridd division an additional constable was appointed for Norton Bridge, and another for Ynyshir. In the Bridgend division an addi- tional constable was granted for Caerau, but a request for another constable at Pontrhydycuff was refused. In the Neath division an extra man was granted for Alitwell and another for Skewen, and a constable was allotted to Cwm- llynfell. In respect of the Barry division, a motion for the appointment of n additional constable at Caerphilly was defeated, as was also a motion for an extra constable for Trelewis. It was resolved to grant an acting-sergeant instead of a constable for Whitchurch. Steps were ordered to be taken for providing a police- station at Skewen. The sub-committee ap- pointed to inquire into the possibility of purchasing some extra land adjoining the Pontypridd Police Station reported that no offer bad bad been received, and the committee was re-appointed.
When People take Cold. It is a popular notion that if a person be amply provided "itli warnJ clothing, wraps, mackintosh, and an umbrella to keep off the wet,, little risk is run of taking cold yet it is a matter of frequent experience tha t, in spite of all reasonable care, colds will arise. The fact that weariness, depres- sion of spirits, fright, worry, or something which has affected the nervous system unfavourably, has prectded the attack is frequently overlooked. When free from every form of nervous debility, says a medical authority, a person may expose himself to draughts, dampness, and the like with- out fear of illness while at another time, when weary and depressed, he may become the victim of a fatal attack. The nervous origin of colds is recognist-d by all physicians. To avoid colds and other similar affections it is necessary, apart from being well clothed, to tone up or strengthen the nervous system and Dr Slater's Blood Ionic Tablets do this in the quickest, surest, and safest manner. They in the first ii.stance create new, rich, red blood, which is then able to carry proper nourishment to the nerves, and repair all waste. The value of the Tablets is proved by experience. They are sold in two and ninepenny boxes by all chemists or may be had post free from the Slater Medicine Co.'s Laboratories, Greek-street, Leeds. See the ame Dr SLter on the cover. A box at hand ill save many a serious illness.
