A Blessing in Disguise is often a pleasant surprise, especially when it brings us reliet from pain. Holloway's Ointment will be found to fulfil both these conditions to those who have faith in its merits. Its success induced the medical profession to introduce it into the hospitals and their private practice, and in many instances where the sufferer was considered incur. able, Holloway's Ointment, in conjunction with his Pills, healed the most desperate cases. They are also unequalled for the cura of scrofula, scurvy, and all diseases of the skin, and the cures they effect are nOs temporary or imperfect, for by their purify ing powers they bring about a marvellous and beneficial change in the whole system.' .

BOER COUNCIL OF WAR. BEFORE THIS ATlACK.

[The story of their reception, seven teen hours' fierce fighting, and ultimata brilliant repulse has already been briefly related.]

Four companies of this battalion, un der the command of Lieut.-Colonel J. Watson, were detailed for special night duty. The object was to dislodge the enemy from positions they had taken up on a kopje at a considerable dis tance from, the British lines. The ad vance was conducted under cover of darkness, and the attack was developed in perfect order.

It afterwards transpired that no order to retire had been given by the British officers, and that the Boers had again made use of their hpow ledge of the British bugle calls to mis lead the British troops by causing the "retire" to be sounded.

LONGFORD WATER SUPPLY. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 11 January 1900
LONGFORD WATER SUPPLY. To the Editor. Sir,-In your Monday's issue Mr. Murnane sets himself "to correct a few of my insinuations," lest they should cause some misunderstanding, and pro ceeds to state that his opposition was due chiefly to the determined manner in which I and my two supporters ignored clause 55 of the Water Act. The correctness of this statement can be judged of when I state that at the last meeting of the trust, held on Dec. 30, Mr. Murnane asked me to read clause 55. When I had done so, I asked him what of it? He said: "You had no right to go on with the works." I then said, "Why did you not draw attention to this matter before?"' and he said he had only seen it a day or so before the meeting. This, then, cannot be the cause of his opposition. Mr. Murnane knows that it was in tended to take the water from the tur bine site, and have the drain diverted, and I told him at the meeting of the trust some time. ago, that Mr. Clerke had surveyed the spot of the intake ther...
