"IMITATION is the SINCEREST FLATTERY. The articles most imitated are CLEMENTS TONIC and FLETCHER'S PILLS. WHY? [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 17 March 1895
'IMITATION is the SINCEREST FLATTERY.' The articles most imitated are CLEMENTS TONIC and FLETCHER'S PILLS. WHYP Because they have the best reputation, and are most in demand by the public, consequently every dishonest trader tries to trade on their fame and renown. It is really wonderful that the Australian people are so slow-- to see the truth as regaods the unscrupulous quacks and char latans who prey on the credulity of the ?, Australian public. Scarcely a week ever passes but what the Press exposes the barefaced and shameful practices of some of these harpies, yet in face of all they seem to thrive, and the paper who hounds them down most thrives fattest on their advertisements and cracks champagne over each balance-sheet. Clements Tonic and Fletcher's Pills have never yet stooped to deception- and mis representation. They are scientific thera peutical agents, and evidence as to their value can be found in every district, and such being the case it is unnecessary to further exto...
GENERAL REMARKS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 17 March 1895
GENERAL REMARKS. One has but to glance at the commercial reports to notice that the volume of business in the inventmeut division of the stock aud share market, both here and in Melbourne, has been very largely reduced during the past week or two. But if the amount of the turn over has not been great, the tone of the market is very firm, and almost all tho business ;hat has been done has been at the improved quotations, which, ou the whole, have been ivell maintained. Tbe present prices of Grovernmeut and other undoubted securities jive a very small interest return: but there ire many trustees and executors who are restricted to i bis form of investment, and with She limited amounts offering for sale, have no option but to do their best ou a rising market. Bank stocks have ou the whole been firm, and ire without much change, but one or two ather marketable securities have slightly relapsed, such as Sydney Exchange, North Shore Ferry, and Emu Gravel, but the altera tion m values is v...

THE MONSTER CYCLING CARNIVAL. After the enterprise shown by the leadiug spirits of the League, it is gratifying to notice how every thing now poiuts to a tremendous success at the race meeting on March 30 and April 6.

It will be a regular Federal meeting, aud the prize-money of £400 will be well contested for by riders from New Zealand, South Australia, Tasmania, Victoria, Queensland, aud all over New South Wales.

With such men as Davis, Hallam, Boyd, Soanes, M'lutosh, Lewis and Simpson riding for tho honor and glory of their various colonies, great races aro a certainty, and, if the weather remains dry to date...

CAME HOME TO DIE. ^ ' GENERAL REGRET AT SIR ROBERT DUFF'S DEATH. Sympathy for Lady Duff and Family. ARRANGEMENTS FOR THE GOVER NOR'S FUNERAL. When the flag at Government House was lowered to half-mast on Friday evening, indicating that Sir Eobert Duff had expired, expressions of regret and of sympathy with Lady Duff and family were heard on all sides. Wo share in those sentiments. Although of the opinion that the deceased gentleman was not the most suitable selection for the position of Governor of New South Wales — an opinion which we did not fail to express, as we were entitled to do — nevertheless we had no word to say against His Excellency as a man. Moreover, it must be borne in mind that it is not necessarily the best man who makes the best Governor. Unusual tact is necessary in order to fill the office to general satisfaction, and to steer clear of the pit falls, both political and social, which lay in the path of one new to this part of the world. Sir Eobert, however, was ra...
