Holloway's Pills.-Bilious complaints and irregularities of the system, produced by de prived or over-abundant bile, can alwa.ys be corrected by a few doses of these inestimable Pills, which are everywhere admired for their rare combination of mildness and power; for though they conquer with ease and rapidity the most obstinate disease, they never weaken the stomach or ne cessiate any interruption of ordinary duties or amusements.

A STRANGE TALE. [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 15 February 1876

A case recently heard at one of our police courts was almost as full of inci dent as some of the three-volume novels of a century ago. It appeared that at I-ammersmith, near London, in the year 1870, a lady and gentleman whom we will call Mir. and Mrs. Haitch, pllighted to each other their troth, and lived very happily together as husband and wife until the month of March 1873, when .Mr. Haitch left England for Canada, having first by a deed of gift settled upon his wife the household furniture and other effects of the house in which she lived, of the value, it is said, of nearly £800; for some time they correspond by every mail, her let ters being couched in most affectionate terms, but in process of time became cooler and cooler still, until at length she ceased to write at all. Mrs. Haitch, in order to make both ends meet, took in lodgers, and among others a young Australian gentleman whom we may call hMr. See, and between them an intimacy sprang up which accounted for the coolne...

NATIONAL DIFFERENCES AS TO WHISTLING. [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 15 February 1876

NATIONIAL DIIFERElNCES AS TO WHISTLING. One of our English contemporaries, in ai lengthy article concerning the whistler, winds up as follows :-Con sidering the vast annoyance caused to men and women by the prevalent vice of whistling, we may well ponder on ite question: Why do men whistle? Women do not, although we could well tolerate anything front their lips but determined refusals. What impulse leads a mall to enclose a circular space with his lips, and then by sheer Incumnatic force to make the noise called whistling If the lips looked more elegant in this form, there would je a plea for whistling. But this is very rarely the case. Granted a mode rate-sized mouth, with upper lips rather small, the personal appearance of the whistler may be tolerated. But take a big mouth, and a pent-roof under lip, and the whistler preseints to yon a fascimile of the extremity of an ele phant's trunk. Strange to say, the latter class of whistlers are by fir the more prevalent; and if whistling ...

MELBOURNE. Saturday evening. [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 15 February 1876

AMEL BOURNE. (FROM OUlR OWN COI:RESPONDENT.) Saturday evening. So far as I can offer al opinion the stone wall has collapsed, though sooner than I anticipated, but its fate was largely accele rated by the motion of Mr. Murray Smith, who seems to have been on the qjti vire for an opportunity, and promptly seized the chance when it offered itself. I am not aware that any further attempt will be made to hinder supplies, which will be asked for on Tuesday next. The question of MIu. Lalor's conduct will come before the House on the same evening, and I have heard that should that gentleman stil persist, in oppo sition to the advice of many of his friends, in refusing to apologise, a more extreime measure will be taken than simlly to arrest and contine him. My teachings have'ever been that a pirompt apology was the most graceful act a man. could make, and every one believes Mir. Lalor to have been in the wrong. Mr. Cook's election was notprompt enough t-, bring hlim into the arena, but of ...

The first hbank, number seven, is drawn at neon, and the last, number live, at mid night, intervals of about an hour intervening ibtween the drawing of the others.

Swanston-street con tains seven lottery shops between Bourke and Lonsdale-streets, and in Bourke-street itself, a little way above the Opera House, there are two of these hells. Prior to the attempts to prosecute and punish the pro orietors of tllhe ank, the Chinese kept very mouch to themselves, ansd I do not think there was a lottery shop outside of Little Bourke-street, but from the time of the first prosecution, when the law was found inadequate to cope with the monstrous evils, the heathens took courage, and sent ...
