(To the Editor Peak Sill Express./ Sir, — I would like to know if the power of description is a lost -art, or if t the English language lias become so effete as to be no longer able to ex press the various phases of thought the human mind is subject to.

Current Jottings. [Newspaper Article] — The Peak Hill Express — 24 April 1903

Current Jottings. Br Geasshofpee. Mr. Eussell, the Government Astron omer claims to have at last discovered what the Australian people have long desired to know, viz., the causes and periods of the -droughts. This gentle man predicts that the present drought will break in 1904, and the following year we are to have abundance of rain 'probably more than required.' While many will likely be sceptical about this advice it is only a matter of a few months to test the accuracies of the statement; and the drowning man clutches at the straw, this pro phecy may have the effect of buoying up many struggling settlers and induc ing them to hang on a little longer. Mr. Eussell maintains that the moon rules the rain, and whatever may be said to the contrary it is the common idea by observers of the weather that there is some connection between the ?two. Of course, this is a problem ?solely for the scientists to discuss, but the most casual observer must have noticed that the various changes of t...

' ?Sir, — Permit me' to -offer a few ' xeinarks on the Old Age Pensioners, In reading your article of the 3rd, and .subsequent correspondence ' by' ' Gumleaves ', and G. H.

Well oir, nere x oeg xo -unet with you. .. The word pauper means one who is supported by alms and it matters not whether the individual is in a Toor House or not, hence the Old Age Pensioner is a pauper!

Chronic Liver Troubles A KEMAKKABLE CURE BY BILE BEANS. 'Four years: Why it -only seoms four weeks since I have been able to enjoy life as one should do,' Says Mrs. E. Holder, of Bryant Street, Eockdale, Sydney. ' About ten years back was the time I first became aware there was something not quite right with mo. I had slight pains at intervals of one to threo days, in my neck, down my back, and across my chest. At first these pains were very slight, but as time wore on they became more se vere and more constant, till, at last, I was never free from them. My eyes also became Bore, my sight bad, in fact, I have lost it altogether at times, but the greatest burdon for mo. to bear was whon my neck and behind my ears became one mass of ris ing sores. At that time I thought I was disfigured for life. Then again I was beset with long spells of retchings, vomiting a most disagreeable greenish substance.
