DYSVEl' SH, AND ALL STOMACH TROU- BLES, Is that they actually contain all of the natural digestants as found ic a healthy stomacii. Unlike many so-called indigestion cures, these tubules are neither laxative or these 'tabules are neither laxative or cathartic, and do not act upon the bowels in any way for in indigestion or dyspepsia the whole trouble is the stomach and not the bowels.

Our Miscellany. The Hour of Triumph. ! "There," exclalmsd tho girl prettily, "I lielieve I could be brave-at any rate for a little while-if a good band inspirited me 1 " She glanced from a programme to the face of the man standing- beside her, and looked at his scrawled initials with satisfaction. She had danced with the hero of the hour, and without administering open flattery, had conveyed delicate homage and praise to a man whose bravery was on every tongue. He returned tho smile ; but at the moment, another partner claimed her, before his rather slow tongue had asked for another dance. He stood alone, a noticeable figure, under some palms in tho corridor, close to the en- trance of the ballroom. He watched with delight one pretty woman after another flit by him, heard the rustle of Bilk, the faint swish of trains, and allowed his eyes to absorb the feast of color, ita What a chango 1 .

Papers the Russians Read. The Principal Newspapers that Circulate in Russia. [Newspaper Article] — Cairns Morning Post — 17 December 1907
Papers the Russians Read. . The Principal Newspapers that' : Circulate In Russia, , The Press in Russia is not as the British I Press. In the land of the Tsar newspaper editors have to be ver; careful os to what I articles they print, elso they run the risk of I finding their paper suppressed and themselves I en route for Siberia. It is advisable, they find, to support the policy of the Govern- ment. - This the "Novoe Vremya" consistently doc . It is the " Times " of Russin, inso- much as it is the most influential newspaper in existence there, but it is to a great extent officially inspired. The means it Employs to gain its own ends ' are often unscrupulous in the extreme. Should a rival paper become too formidable tho controllers of the " Novoe Vremya " use their powerful influence in high political circles to have it suppressed. Consequently contemporaries both fear and hate the paper which can, when necessary, do them so much hann. The " Novoa Vremya " is read by all who have Go...

BUMPED BY A WHALE. BRISBANE, Monday. Tho Steamer Peregrino arrived to- day from ^Sy&lt;I^cy.
