The Lambing Season.-The Chemical Extract is unequalled for bad cases in drawing Lambs, and to stop heaving and straining. Mr Woods, in his Lecture on the Breeding and Management of Sheep, says: My shepherd declares it to be worth a guinea a bottle. The Gaseous Fluid is famous for debility and exhaustion in Ewes after Lambing, for diarrhoea in calves and sheep, and for colic and gripes in horses and cattle. Mr. Bowick, in his Prize Essay on the Rearing of Calves, says: The Gaseous Fluid is sufficient for all the ills that calf hood is liable to. I have reared 26 calves this year, and by the use of the Gaseous Fluid I have not lost one.—Mr. Thomas Eigby (Cheshire), in his Lecture on Summer Grazing of Sheep, says Day, Son, and Hewitt's Gaseous Fluid is the best corrective of the scour in sheep I have ever tried. I can strongly recommend their Medicine Chest as a most valuable auxiliary to stock-keepers of all kinds, but especially to shepherds. With the Medicines they give plain directions for use, which any man may understand. Orders sent by post will be promptly attended to if addressed—DAY, SON, & HEWITT, Animal Medicine Factory, 21, Dorset-street, Baker-street, London, W., Or Wantage, Berks.

This invaluable Medicine, which has been known throughout the UNITED KINGDOM for nearly half a century, and recognised by all who have tried it to be the BEST PURIFIER OF THE BLOOD, is admirably adapted to supply a great want—that of a remedy always at haud, easy of application, and cer- tain in its results. Its timely aid prevents, and its assistance cures, all Diseases, however caused; and where these Pills are persevered with DOCTORS' BILLS ARE UNKNOWN. Being a purely vegetable preparition, they may be taken at any time by either sex without fear of danger. Acting upon the bowels mildly, yet effectually, by their fine tonic, aromatic, and aperient properties, they re- move all oppressive accumulations, regulate the secre- tions of the liver and bowels, strengthen the stomach, and purify the blood. Prepared solely by JOHN KAYE, Esq., of Prospect Hall, Woodford, Essex. Sold by all Chemists and other Dealers in Patent Medicines, at Is. lid., 2s. 9d. and 4s. 6d. Wholesale Depot, 22, Bread-street, Lon- don [245 THE CHAMPION LIVER AND STOMACH PILLS. These Pills are compounded from the recipe of one of the most eminent physicians of the present day (who, from purely philanthropic motives—knowing their excellent properties from experience—has been induced to give the benefit of them to the public at large). They are prepared by an able and experienced chemist, and are acknowledged, by the faculty, to be the most valuable medicine for all disorders of the stomach and derangements of the liver ever prepared. It is a well-known fact that most of the diseases incident to the human race arise from a disordered stomach, and an irregular state of the bowels, and for want of a suitable remedy, taken in time, thousands of (at first) simple maladies become serious illnesses. To guard against this great evil, and to preserve the bles- sings of health, these pills are confidently and earnestly recommended. They act generally on the constitution, cleanse the blood of all impurities; regulate the secretions, and give tone to the stomach; correct the morbid condition of the liver, regulate the bowels, and, by removing all impt diments, restore elasticity and vigour to the whole frame. ° Sold in boxes (with directions for use) Is Ud. and 7id. 2 each (a saving by taking the larger size). Sold Wholesale by Messrs. Barclay and Son, London, and Retail by all Medicine Vendors. AGENT FOR BRECON: MR. MORRIS, CHEMIST.

REGISTERED OFFICES .5, BATAVIA BUILDINGS, HACKINS HEY, LIVERPOOL. ABRIDGED PROSPECTUS. The object of the Company is to acquire three valuable Mining properties in Carmarthenshire, that is to say, New Nantymwyn, Gilfacn and Glnn Tuwv. New Nantymwyn is a continuation westward of the celebrated Nantymwyn Mines. These Mines have been worked to immense profit for centuries, and ap- pear to be perfectly inexhaustible. Some idea may be formed of the great value of these Lodes from the fact that the3 occupy a channel of 180 feet in width, consisting of six divisions or lodes, and that a sink on one of them is now yielding eighteen tons of rich quality ore, worth upwards of 2200 per fathom fur Lead 2ndly. The Gilfach property consists of a Lead Mine, worked to some extent aud in.r>iDkcJ with water machinery, in which a discovery of Lead ore has been made by an Adit. It is p oposed by the Company to extend the shaft downwards on this course of ore, as well as to explore another discovery of ore in the sett on the Lady Eliza No. 2 Lode, where there is a good back of ore ground cropping up to and extending a considerable length along the surface. 3rdly. Glan-Towy is an old Lead Mine. Shafts, which have yielded Lead Ore in some quantity, exist on the top of the hill, and the present Company pro- pose to drive an Adit to prove the value of the Lode under the old sinks. Plans taken from the Ordnance Survey, showing the exact position of the Lodes, together with ground plans of the estate sections of the Mines, and reports by skilful mining engineers, are appended, and will be forwarded on application to the Secretary. Speci- mens of the ore may be seen at the Company's Offices Taking into consideration the position of the Mines, the highly favourable prospects, and the return of ore being immediately available, the Directors feel con- fident that, with the outlay proposed, profits equal to the adjoining mines will be participated in by the Shareholders. Applications for Shares, to be accompanied with the deposit of 5s. per Share, may be made to the Secre- tary, at the Offices of the Company, or to the Bankers. FORM OF APPLICATION FOR SHARES.
