Indigestion and Flatulency, PROMPTLY CURED BY BILE BEANS. " FOR about five years," says Miss Jessie Hay, of Montefere St., Wellington, N.S.W., "t-I suffered intense agony from Indigestion and Flatulency. I consulted several doctors who prescribed for me but without beneficial results. Many advertised so called remedies were also tried, but still I suffered on, and life became a burden to me. A friend who had proved the worth of Bile Beans, advised me to undergo a course, and as a farther inducoment presented me with a box. By the time I had finished that box I noticed a considerable improvement in my health, and, thus enoonragrd, I underwent a thorough course. By the time I had finished the ninth box, I was completely and thoroughly cured of Indigestion and Flatulency, which is entirely due to Bile Beans. I never fail to recommend them to fellow sufferers." Of all medicine vendors at 1/l1 or 2/9 family box, .(2/9 box contains three times 1/1j.).

CHA.PTER V. * Oh, Hannah, I am so cold, and hungry, and frightened I' said poor Mabel, as she sat in the corner of a third-class railway car riage on her way to Devonshire to stay with her unknown relatives. She had never been such a long journey before, and the thought of the new and strange existence she was about to enter filled her with dismay. She was very cold, for Hannah had decided that it would be unwise to wear her beautiful new travelling cloak for the first time in a dirty railway carriage, so it was folded up in a large paper parcel, as it was found roo large to go inside her new yellow tin bor that contained all her recent purchases. The little travelling bag had also been carefully wrapped in paper, and packed at the top of the box. 'Never mind, Mias Mabel dear I Wrap my shawl round your feet, and be sure you'll have a good supper when you arrive. As to being frightened, why you'll out such a dash in those fine new clothes of yours, that all the ladies will be quite e...

" The representatives of each site profess to be confident of sucoess, s. a close contest is expected. . All the daily papers in N. S. Wales and Victoria are against Monaro. Most New South Wales Members will vote against it. The reason is said to be the fear of another port being opened at Twofold Bay.

The room was- well filled. .Mr,- Joseph Reid was voted to the chair. Mr. Millard went fully into the expenditure of the'See Government. He stated that it had been reported that he was opposed to closer settlement. Such was not the case. He was in favour of closer settlement and the compulsory clauses also. He said he was also in favour of local .government, provided it did not mean extra taxation to the people. He was opposed to the Arbitra tion Act in its present form, and considered it required to be amended. Only a few weeks ago a wool scour had to be closed, that was paying £3000 or £4000 per year wages, which meant the loss of that amount to the district, and more unnmployed thrown on the labour market. He noticed 'in the press that when his oponent Dr. Blackall, was addressing them he stated he was in favour of the Arbitration Act in its present f...

THE DRINK BILL IN GAOL. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 15 July 1904
THE DRINK BILL IN. GAOL. REFERENCE is made by the Comptroller. General of Prisons in his report on the operations of the department during the year, 1903 to the enormous number of convictions for drunkenness. It is shown, however, that once in goal a rigid system of temperance is enforced. A return is given of the value of stimulants actually used for prisoners during the year in the prisons of the State. The quantity of spirits consumed is valued at £2 Os 111, equal to 10 bottles, and of beer and porter the value is given at £3 3s 8d, equal to something like 10 dozen bottles. No wine was consumed, and the total value of stimulants used came to only 4~5 10s 7d. At the end' of the year the prison population was 1822. The dcst of stimulatnts per head taking this total as the average number in the gaols, was therefore three.farthings. This is prohibition in its most drastic form but it will, no doubt, be approved of by temperance and nontemperance advocates alike. Fifteen thousand Chin...

FARM WAGES. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 15 July 1904
FARM WAGES.

At 7 a.m. I get up and have breakfast ;at 7.30 start milking and finish at midday. I spell till 2 p.m. when I start chaffoutting end get fihed at 5 p.m. Tea at 6. Start milking again at 7, and finish at 1 next morning. We get to bed at 1.30. I have worked at dairies in Gippeland which are worse still." We should like to know what are the hours in the worse places. And milking to 1 o'clock in the morning buggests dreams. Probably untrue, even of the working man's protec. tionist paradise.

SUED FOR TWOPENCE. A PECULIAR case was last week before the Auckland Magistrates' Court. The Post master-General of New Zealand sued Mr. Harold Moss for 2d, postage due on a letter. Defendant paid the snm into court, together. with 15s costs, just before the sitting of the Court on the previove week. Mr. Mays, for the Crown Prosecutor, applied for special costs on the ground that the matter was one of publio importance, and the application was adjourned to allow notice of it to be given to defendant. Mr. Lundon, for defendant, said the facts were that defendant instructed a messenger to deliver, the letter in qdestion at the Auckland Star Office. Unfortunately, the messenger posted the unstamped letter with several others, at the post office. When the letter was returned defendant naturally objected to paying the 2d. He simply said that he gave no instructions that it was to be posted, and objected to paying. The money was paid into court to avoid publicity. His Worship said he woul...

WRECK OF ANOTHER STEAMER. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 15 July 1904
WRECK OF ANOTHER STEAMER. The wreckage recently found along the the Cronulla beach is discovered to be from the s. s. Nemesis, a screw steamer vessel, the property of Messrs Huddart, Parker, and Sops, used as a cargo vessel between Sydney, Newcastle, and West Australia. The crew, consisting of 33 hands all told, are lost. The cargo of the steamer consisted of about 1600 tons of coal, including 150 tons in the bunkers. The wreckage is strewn along the northern end of the beach, most of it being abreast of Long Nose Point, where the sea is breaking heavily, preventing a search seaward. The wreckage indicates that the hatches were burst in by a heavy sea. One lifeboat washed up was apparently in good order, but there is no sign of bodies. The beach is strewn with dead birds, which were evidently killed by the recent gale. Those who know the locality well are of opinion that the vessel struck a reef and was driven off the rocks into the deep water on the shore side. Two of the officers ...
