KATAMATITE. The Mechanics' Hall was orowded to its utmost capacity on Friday night last, when the local Dramatic Olub prodnced the five act drama, "Ten Nights in a Bar-room."

To have been cared long ago and to have been well ever since, sorely means a permanent cure Bead what this man has to say. about it, Mr H. Frampton, Qainn-btreet. Na markah says :—" Five years ago I took a oonrse of Doan's Backache Kidney Pills for severe pains in my back, and other symptoms of kidney disorder, and am pleased to say they cared me. The most pleasing part of my care is that it has proved permanent, for I have been free of kidney complaint ever since, Previons to taking Doan's Back ache Kidney Pills I used to suffer agony from backache, the pain being at times very severe, this being especially the case if I stooped or moved quickly. I also had nrinery tronble, the water being very discolored, and containing a sediment. After a course of Doan's Backache Kidney Pills, however, these distressing ailments disappeared, and I have been right as rain ever since." Two years later Mr Frampton says— It ...

THE SYNOD. There was a good attendance at the Diocesan Synod at Wangaratta last week moBt parishes being represented by olerioal and lay members. The Removal of Clerks Bill was passed after much dis mission, which resulted in unanimous voting after certain minor amendments. The Assembly Amending Bill passed through more quickly, and Wangaratta Diocese has granted to women the right to vote in the election of Lay Repre sentatives. And rightly. What could we do without the help of our women in parochial Cburoh workP They out number the men always in our congre gations, and we are glad to recognise their right to take part in choosing those who are to represent us at our legislative assemblies. Perhaps the day is not far distant when we may go still further. Another bill which also went through its various readings without any hitch was that framed to amend the Trustees and Vestries Act in the matter of the times for holding the Annual Meetings of parishes. It has been legal only to ho...
