BEWARE OF NEURASTHENIA. i Neurasthenia is a condition of xhaus-: tioti of the nervous eystem. The causes are varied. Contirilous work, mental or physical, without holidays, without proper attention to (liet and exercise, also worry over family affairs or friends, are the most common causes. Excesses of almost any kind may produce it. Some disorders, like influenza, will cause neurasthenia. So also will a severe shock, intense anxiety, or grief. The symptoms are over-sensitiveness, in- .bility, a disposition to worry over trifles, headaches, possibly nausea. The treatment is one of nutrition of the Herve cells, requiring a safe, reliable tonic, As the nerves get their nourishment from the blood, the treatment most be directed 'towards building up the blood.

GERMANY'S FOOD. I Eggs at 7d. elch: Herrings A Costing 7d. A Zurich correspondent of the "Times" says:— During the last fortnight food supplies in Berlin have deteriorated even from the condition Mr. Curtin records. Eggs are now only to be obtained by card, and are pfenning (7d.) each. Two only can be obtained every 20 days by any one indi- vidual. There has been a call up" by the rovemment, not only of ordinary mits ind berries, but of acorns, which are raken to the schools and are used for the manufacture of artificial coffee and other purposes. The late potatoes have proved as bad as those gathered early in the year. They are 60 watery as to decay rapidly, and will affect the supply of potato flour for bread-making. HERRINGS 7id, EACH. Fish is getting much dearer. Herrings are now 7M. each, and sugar has disap- peared altogether, saccharine being used in both private and public establishments. The sugar is understood to have been com- mandeered by the munition establish- ments for the manufacture of explosives. To the food shortage is now added the clothes shortage. None can now be pur- chased without a special permit. None the lees the people are extremely confident, largely owing to the Rumanian successes and the advertised success of the War Loan. Great hopes surround the long-distance submarine, and the populace not only be- lieve in future attacks on England by super-Zeppelins, but are told that the oper- ations of the long-distance submarine will be followed by the new long-distance Zeppelin. Rumours spreak by Germany of an Allied invasion, generally via Denmark and Holland, and the heavy entrench- ments along the frontiers of these countries „ are causing a good deal of concern in these neutral States.

PURCHASE OF SUGAR. ] Mr. McKenna and the Whole- sale Dealers. Mr. McKenna, Chancellor of the Ex- I chequer, has informed Mr. Lough that wholesale dealers in 6ugarwere not en- titled to require purchasers to take other goods as well as a condition of obtaining sugar. The Sugar Commission was ready to investigate auy case of the Hfed if brolight hefore them with full par- ticulars. Amswering,M.r. Row lands, Mr. McKenna !Said the practice of requiring customers to purchase a certain quantity of other groceries as a condition of obtaining sugar had been adopted by retailers of their own accord, as a means of protecting their reduced stocks of sugar from too rapid depletion. The Commission had eo far not thought it right to interfere beyond insisting that the elastomers must be left complete free- dom of choice as regarded the other goods to be purchased. But it would now fur- ther decline to countenance enforcement of the coiditiou unless the value of the goods which a reWler might require to be purchased at the. same Ujjie as sugar did not exceed 2s. in respect of each pound of sugar.
