The Chief Corrective This is a title which may be applied with- out exaggeration to the celebrated specific—Beecham's Pills. So very try ing to the average constitution is the strenuous character of modern life, that one becomes increasingly liable to get "run down." Such a condition of lowered vitality is fraught with considerable danger to health, for the bodily system is less able to withstand the attacks of disease. Beecham's Pills are an excellent medicine for modern times. They suit our requirements. They meet our needs. Their gentle, yet thorough influence as an aperient speedily stimulates the liver to healthv activity, and their excellent tonic propel ies strengthen the stomach in a wiiuvd degree. Such distressing ail- ments a:; biliousness, constipation flatu lence, indigestion and headache—in- dications that the health is below the normal-are quickly dispelled and the return to a more vigorous state is estab- lished. Beecham's Pills are prepared with the most scrupulous care from in- gredients of vegetable origin having great curative value, and they cannot fail to prove beneficial to all who use them, if the directions are fol lowed. Be- yond all doubt, the medicine for modern times, I and for giving tone and vim to the system is BEECHAM'S PI LLS.

Antique Department 8, THE STRUET. Public Notices. For highway, byway and crowded streets there is no safer, surer, more comfortable cyclecar than the HUMBERETTE It provides the cheapest form of comfortable motoring, and is so simply controlled that the veriest novice can drive it after a few minutes instruction. WITH HOOD, SCREEN, HORN, HEADLIGHTS AND TAIL LAMP, ALL COMPLETE £ 125. This little Car can be seen with the District Agents, J. E. NOTT & co., LIMITED, High Street, and Ship Street, BRECON. Reprinted from the "Motor News" June 7th, 19/3 PROM time to time I have heard ■ doubt expressed as to whether the air-cooled engine fitted to the Humberette will overheat on long mountain passes. It may interest our readers to know that last Satur- day I climbed to the top of the Featherbed Mountain via Glendhu without any sign of heating what- ever. I called a halt at Glendhu Bridge and lifted the bonnet, and found that water dropped on the cylinder head only fizzled and did not flash into steam, as would happen if the engine were over- heated. This particular section of the climb is very trying. On very many occasions I have overheated here when driving cars with water- cooled engines, and I know many motorists who have had a similar experience. It is due to the length and severity of the climb and the sheltered nature of the valley. On the descent from the top of the Featherbed to Glencree I was greatly surprised at the smoothness with which the Humberette ran over the atrocious surface. I travelled faster than I ever did. befoie over this sec- tion and with more comfort. The little car seemed to take the bumps and hollows softly and smoothly, the springing certainly being excellent." Catalogues and full particulars can be obtained from J. E. NOTT & DUrt Ltd. Brecon.
