Tahwoiith, N.S.W., May 27, iS9b. — I have suffered from pains in tlio small of my back the last six years, and for tho last four months thoy have been' so bad that I had to call a medical gentleman, who, with all his medicines, did me no good. At last I got so weak I could not retain' my food on my stomach. I was running day and night, having no control over my urination, the discharge from the kidneys being more like blood than water, and of very offensive odour. Finding I was not getting better, I went to Sydney, and sought medical advice — all to no good, my appetite being completely gone ; and as my life was in a precarious state, 1 returned home. Seeing an advertisement of Warner's Safe Cur.', I concluded to try it. I am pleased to state I have only used two bottles, and my health is improving rapidly. I am beginning to eat as well as ever, and my complaint has ceased to annoy me in any way, and I am getting strong again. I can safely recommend Warner...

The Unions never pressed them after this, although they made desperate efforts to get on level terms, and the local crew won easily by about six lengths. The distance wa...
