James, 79, Bellevue-terrace, Albert Town, Haverfordwest, says his wife scalded herself with boiling grease, she applied the Arabian Oil twice, in less than half-an-hour it was all right. And again her servant upset a teapot of boiling tea, and scalded her hands and arms, applied Oil once she was cured in ten minutes. There is no other remedy that can do this. A man's finger cut off at Burry Port Copper Works. Henry Thomas, New-street, Burry Port, in a letter dated October, 1903, says:—"He used my Arabian. Oil Embrocation, and in a few minutes he was absolutely painless, and says the finger is healing up rapidly." A complete cure for burn on arm. From Mrs Eliza Rees, Beech wood, Llanarth, R S.O.—" I have used your Arabian Oil Embro- cation for a burn on my arm, it made a complete cure. I have also used it for cuts several times, it never fails." Shingles. Mr W. D. Bateman, Rehoboth, Croesgoch, Pem- brokeshire, writes :—" Dear Sir, — I have much pleasure in recommending your Embrocation for curing the Shingles, as I have suffered some months ago from Shingles, and could not have anything to cure it. By chance I saw one of your circulars, and resolved to try your Embroca- tion, which I did with the most satisfactory results, and I shall always praise it." FOR MOSQUITOES. Mrs Sellers, Uphall, Scotland, used my Arabian Oil when at Durban, South Africa, for Mosquitoes, nd it kept them off. Mr Walter Lloyd, Engineer, St. Dogmell's, has used Arabian Oil for Mosquitoes when out in the West Coast of Africa, and says it kept them off, and he was the only one in the steamer that they did not attack. Housemaid's Knee-Arabian Oil is a Sure Cure for this. Be sure to ask for R. W. WOOLCOCK'S Arabian Oil EMBROCATION And do not be put off with 11 anything just as good," if you do you will only be deceived, as there is nothing "just as good."

MR. CHAMBERLAIN'S I UNAUTHORISED PROGRAMME. OLD RAGS AND WORN-OUT PANS. TRADE AND EMPIRE IN DANGER. WHEN Mr. Chamberlain re-stated his case at Birmingham on May 12th, he gave us no new light upon his proposals of Preference and Protection. Beyond the fact that he now describes them as his second "miauthorised programme there was scarcely a fresh sen- tence in the speech. To adopt his own phrase we had nothing but we had nothing but "the waving of old flags and the clatter- ing of worn-out pans." The speech at Birmingham was the same old cry: Your Empire and Trade is in danger. Ancient Preference. MR. CHAMBERLAIN sometimes speaks as though he imagined that the idea of Prefer- ence for Colonial produce was something entirely new. If he entertains any hope of securing the patent rights for that proposal, a study of the records will quickly shew him that the plan was tried in the first half of last century and abandoned as useless. If we take the figures of exports to British Colonies before and after those Colonies enjoyed preferential treatment in our markets, we shall find some interesting results: BRITISH EXPORTS TO COLONIES UNDER PREFERENTIAL TARIFFS. £ £ 1839 16,345,769 1844 16,712,712 1840 17,458,307 1845 17,077,060 1841 15,003,425 1816 L6,165,315 1842 13,473,064 1847 15,147,679 1843 15,228,834 1843 13,035,543 It will be seen that during the time we were giving a preference to the Colonies our trade was small and unsteady; it fluctuated back- ward and forward in a most unsatisfactory manner. Now let us consider the figures after preference was abandoned. For brevity we will give the average for each five years: BRITISH EXPOBTS TO COLONIES UNDER FREE TRADE. £ £ 1859 37,000,000 1800-4 78,000,000 1860-4 46,000,000 1895-9 81,000,000 1865-9 50,000,000 1900 94,000,000 1870-4 60.000.000 1901 104,000,000 1875-9 67,000,000 1902 109,000,000 1880-4 81,000.000 1903 111,000,000 r 1885-9 79,000,000 These figures are eminently satisfactory. If we turn to our imports from the Colonies we find the same steady upward progress. In spite of the fact that the Colonies have now no preference in the British market, and have to enter upon the same terms as foreign nations, still our Colonies have been more than able to hold their own. IMPORTS FROM THE COLONIES TO GREAT BRITAIN. i2 1855-9 40,000,000 1890-4 96,000,000 1860 4 68,000,000 1895-9 98,000,0:0 1865 9 68,000,000 1900 109,000,000 1870-4 76,000,000 1901 105,000,()00 1875-9 83,000,000 1902 106,000,000 1880-4 96,000,000 1903 113,000,000 1885-9 87,000,000 We can, then, safely say that the abandon- ment of preference to the Colonies by Great Britain has certainly not brought any evil effect upon British or Colonial trade. Modern Preference. MR. CHAMBERLAIN imagines that preference to-day will accomplish something that it did not secure fifty years ago. He also wishes us to believe that the Colonies are giving a real preference to British trade and that they are prepared to extend that preference but only on condition that we are ready to do the same and to do it at once. Says Mr. Chamberlain: Believe me, now is the appointed hour. Those rising peoples--still comparatively in their infancy, but making progress which in a few brief years will place them immeasurably beyond their present position—those rising generations cannot wait, they have their destinies to control. They have their paths of progress to mark out. Do you think they will wait for ever on the out- skirts of your indisposition? No, grasp the occasion while it arises, or it will for ever slip from your fingers. Now before we grasp anything let us be sure it will not sting us. Let us know what we are grasping. We are asked to abandon cur present Fiscal policy in order to give a prefer- ence to the Colonies, not merely for the sake of the Empire, but also for the sake of our trade! If Mr. Chamberlain will drop the idea of benefiting British trade by his scheme, it would greatly simplify matters, and we could then look at his proposals purely from the patriotic point of view. But as he will insist upon parading his proposals as tire only means of improving British trade we are bound to judge them from a purely commercial stand- point. Business Questions. Brushing aside all Mr. Chamberlain's high- sounding words, business men will want an answer to this question Has the preference given by the Colonies increased' British trade to a larger extent than foreign trade ? The figures give the reply. Here are the values of British and American exports to Canada: Year. Total. British. American. £ £ £ 1897 21.323,000 5,880,000 11,404,000 1898 25,261,000 6,406,000 14,800,000 1899 29,870,000 7,386,000 17,700,000 ]900 34,501,000 8,856,000 20,416,000 1901 35,500,000 8,563,000 21,420,000 1902 39,296,000 9,804.000 22,950,000 1903 44,962,000 11,758,000 25,758,000 These figures show that the preference given to British trade by Canada is not, in practice, equal to that given to the United States of America. The second question business men" will want answered is: "Will the promised preference increase British trade more than foreign trade ? The reply to that question is that so far as we have been able to discover no promise of further preference has ever been made by anybody on behalf of the Colonies, except by Mr. Chamberlain himself! Now Mr. Chamberlain may be a very- great man, but he has no mandate to speak for the Colonies; that being the case, would any business man speculate a brass button upon any political promise Mr. Chamberlain might make P The only preference the Colonies could give which would be worth while to con- sider would be an equal market for British manufactures, but this the Colonial manufac- turers have refused to give. They are quite willing to give us a sort of preference, that is, they are prepared to increase their 'duties against foreign goods. But they will not accept any alteration of their tariffs which does not give an adequate protection for their own industries against those of Great Britain. It is for such a flimsy advantage that Mr. Chamberlain asks us to tax our food and endanger our foreign trade.

m CYCLING AND MOTORING -:0:- The practice followed by some wheelmen of taking out their dogs for a ran when going for a cvele ride, is a cruel one, and at the same time,, one fraught with danger to the wbeelman himself and other members of the wheel. But even this is not so dangerous as taking out a dog attached to a. cord. A lady of Aberdeen was taking her Bedlington terrier for a run in this manner, when the animal got frightened by an electric car, and ran behind its mistress for safety. The result was that the cord got mixed up with the wheel and the trio came to an abrupt stop. When the lady, the dog, and the cycle were sorted out, it was discovered that the injuries sastained were fortunately but slight. — • A Crewe cyclist recently lost his machine, and regained same after an excited chase which extended over a distance of some miles. He had been into a wayside inn for refreshments, and left, as cyclists will, his machine outside unat- tended. A cycle thief, who had been hanging round waiting for such an opportunity to occur, immediately jumped on the saddle and rode off, but the cyclist coming out and finding his machine missing, looked down the road and saw in the distance the man with the machine. Without more ado, the owner annexed a bicycle standing by and followed on the heels of the miscreant, ana being the better rider of the two, was able finally to overhaul him. The need of a specially designed tyre for motor- ing to withstand the severe strains that such. A tyre is put to, becomes a necessity which a ridsr will not be long in discovering should he purchase a tyre not properly constructed for the work intended of it. To meet this requirement, the Dunlop Tyre Company, after severe tests, intro- duced a carefully designed motor tyre, at once trustworthy and durable, an example of the highest standard in tyre construction, and one capable of undergoing an infinity of hard wear. At the various shows held last winter, the Dunlop bulked largely in the public eye, indeed, it required no very keen discernment to perceive that the number of cars and cycles fitted with the Dunlop tyre, formed by far the major proportion, a striking testimony as to the comparative merits of the numerous makes of tyres before the public. The carelessness displayed by road repairing contractors in not providing warning or protection for pedestrians or equestrians when roads are undergoing repair, is a subject that has been frequently commented upon in the cycle and motor press, and not a few local councils have been called upon to pay considerable sums away in damages and compensation. The latest council to be mulct in damages is the Urban District Council of Finchley, a young lady cyclist having fallen into a trench, and sustaining thereby con- siderable injuries. The principal witness was Mr. Burdett-Coutts, M.P., who, at the time of the accident was driving a coach and four along the road. He stated that the lady and machine suddenly disappeared from sight, so be pulled up and hastened to her assistance. When I got there she was very much knocked about, and looked more like a man who had been in a prize fight." The plaintiff received a verdict in her favour with compensation to the tune of JE100 and costs against the Urban District Council and the Contractors. Two men have just been fined 25/- and costs each for interfering with cyclists along the road from Penmaenwawr to Conway. The Rev. Mr. PhillipB noticed the two men approaching him, and as he was on the point of passing, one reeled over against his front wheel and brought the Rev. gentleman to the ground. The same thing occurred to another cyclist further up the road. A tyre that is largely used and is immensely popular in all countries, is the Dunlop. t For road or path, they are without an equal. They can permanently repaired quickly and easily by any novice, in any place, without the necessity of tools of any kind. Dunlop tyMe are guaranteed by their makers, whose name and trade mark will be found stamped on boite tyres and inner tubes. It has been humorously stated that motor care will one day oust the thorough-bred from the Turf, and that the time will come when the Derby will be competed for by high-powered racing motor cars. Such a prophecy, however, is not likely to come about in our time, although in Australia a step forward has been made towards this end. With a view of holding an invitation motor sports and social gathering, a sub-committee of the Automobile.Club of Victoria have viaitedaevera.1 of the horse racing tracks around Melbourne, HO that the most suitable grounds for fast motor pace- could be secured. After trying the speed capabili- ties of several of the grass racing tracks, the Maribyrnong course was decided upon as bei) g the fastest and most suitable. Speed tests carried out on this track showed it to be fast and the corners easily negotiated. I. is eminently sisiiah'e for automobile racing, being wide and flat and of good even surface. At one time, 24 hours' races were extremely popular amongst the Parisians, such events hi variably attracting large crowds of spectators who exhibited tremendous enthusiasm wherever the;r particular favourite secured any advantage over his rivals. For the last two years or so, however, these long distance races seem to have entirely lost their attraction, even in Paris, possibly owing to the fact that first class long distance men iiave- been few in number, and of these, on" or two might have been head and shoulders in front of his confreres. This: year, however, it would seem that 24_hourb' races were to be given another ihance of drawing good gates. We have heard that the classic 24 hours' race known ItS the Bol d' Or, will be held on the Buffalo trac!, on July 13th and 14th, and that another similar event will cake placc' nt the Pare des Princes track on August 7th. The competitors iu the former event will be allowed human pacing and in the latter event, motor pacing.
