Being a purely vegetable preparation, they may be taken at any time by either sex without fear of danger.

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 stomncb, at d an irregular state of the bowels, and for war t 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 s. onerally on the constitution, cleanse the ood of all impurities; regul&te the secretions, and give tone to the stomachs correct the morbid condition of the liver, regulate the bowels, and, by removing all impediments, restore elasticity and vigour to the whole frame. ———— Sold in boxes (with directions for use) is.ild. and nd. each (a saving by taking the larger size).

Crickhowell, 29th July, 1867. [600 VALE OF CRICKHOWELL RAILWAY. STATEMENT FOR PERUSAL. THE Directors request the attention of the public to the following statement regarding the position of this undertaking. The Act to make the Line from Abergavenny to Crickhowell was obtained in 1864. It was supported by a fair local subscription, evincing the earnest desire of the inhabitants generally to obtain the line. A contractor having come forward and offered to make the line without local assistance, those subscriptions were not at that time called for, but circumstances beyond control afterwards defeated that arrangement. In 1865, applications were made to Parliament for certain extensions then deemed necessary to complete the system, but those applications were unsuccessful; and then came the rapid tightening of the money market, followed by the panic and crash in May, 1866, so that the contractor was unable to make his arrange- ments to commence the line. An Act was obtained in July, 1866, authorising the extension of the railway to Brecon but by that time the effects of the crisis had so far extended to railway property as to render it impossible to obtain money for I I contractors' lines" upon any terms and, after some delay and negotiation, it was seen to be necessary to abandon the first contract. Various negociations and treaties, which need not be here detailed, have since been resorted to for getting the line made, independently of local efforts, but without effect and the directors are satisfied that it will be impossible, in the present day, or for many years to come, to get this line made without hearty ocal co-operation. It follows, therefore, that unless possession can be got of the necessary land upon easy terms, and the original subscription list, which amounted to nearly zE6,000, can be revived, and augmented to the extent of about Ten Thousand Pounds, no alternative will be left to the directors but to proceed, in November next, to protect themselves against ultimate loss by obtain. ing Parliamentary authority to abandon the line and repral the Acts obtained at so much labour and cost. The directors, however, hope better things than this from the pluck and enterprise of their friends and neighbours; and they think that the ardent long- ing which is felt for the line will prompt one final effort to obtain it. A responsible contractor is ready to make the line from Abergavenny to Crickhowell for a sum of about £ 30,000, and to take about X10,000 of that sum in the ordinary shares of the Company, provided he is put in possession of the land, and is shown a local subscription list equal in amount to the shares he takes, viz., about 210,000. All the persons who have claims against the Com- pany, in respect to the preliminary expenses for obtaining the Act, have consented to forbear those claims until the line is made from Abergavenny to Crickhowell so that the directors are enabled to guarantpe to Subscribers that every shilling of the money they subscribe shall be expended in the con- struction of the line. The Directors will do all in their power to make the calls at as long intervals, and as little burdensome to the subscribers as they possibly can. Calls can only be made, under the Act, at intervals of three months, and no more than one-fifth of a share can be called at one time. The Directors feel satisfied that when the line is once made and opened to Crickhowell, little difficulty will be found in providing the means to extend it to the junction at Talybont. The Directors commend these remarks to the earnest consideration of those interested, and trust that the general feeling of the necessity for this line, and the public spirit of the landowners and inhabitants, will avert the humiliating step of having to proceed in November next to abandon the undertaking. The Directors will make a personal canvass of the neighbourhood for support, and they trust that their efforts will be cordially responded to by all classes. G. A. A.
