IS IT YOUR KIDNEYS ? Many people never suspect their kidneys. If suffering from a lame. weak, or aching back, they think that it is only a muscular weakness; when urinary trouble sets.. in they think it will soon correct itself. And so it is with all the other symptoms of kidney disorder. That is where the danger often lies. You should realise that these troubles often lead to serious kidney disease. An effective remedy for weak or diseased kidneys is Doan's Backache Kidney Pills. Read this experience: Mrs. N. Stuart, Crawford Street, Queanbeyan, says: "For some, time I was a martyr to kidney trouble, the symptoms being pains in the back, dizzy attacks and bad head aches. My back was very painful, and I could hardly get about, as every movement added to my suf fering. My rest at night was bro ken, and I used to get up in the morning almost as tired as when I went to bed. One day I happened to hear that Doan's Backache Kid ney Pills were a splendid kidney remedy, and I decided to try...

'The approximate loss on three pro-I perties in the Albury district through the bush fires is £10,000. i It is re ported that on the various stations in the district, about 1500 sheep were burnt to death. An eagle of unusual, size flew into the room of a settler's home in West Australia and attacked a baby. The screams of the child attracted the mother, who succeeded in rescuing the.baby before any injury was done. Woolgrowers are reluctant to give an 'opinion as to the effect of the in troduction.of artificial wool upon the pastoral industry. A small sample was submitted to the last meeting of the executive of the Wool Growers" Association.. Members said the posi tion 'was too obscure.at present for any comment of any value to be made. The beer strike at Lithgow ended yesterday, following on the decision by the hotelkeepers to revert to the old prices for drinks. A number of cows broke out of a paddock at Casino, and five of them were cut down by a train.

(Published by arrangement.) DO JUDGES ENCOURAGE CRIME? In an address to a convention a' Chicago, reported in the " Herald Tribune," New York. Governor Gif ford Pinehot,of Pennsylvania, charged the failure to enforce Prohibition and disrespect for that law to the exa'mple set by public officials at Washington Private citizens who wanted to break the law, he declared, had discovered that the law-enforcing officials had no intention of enforcing it. " Among all the cities of America, Washington, where laws are made. became the conspicuous leader in dis respect for the law and the Constitution of the United States. Cabinet officers, judges, Senators, Representatives in Congress and leaders of the oflicia.l tife of Washington in every line pub licly, notoriously and as a matter of course broke the fundamental law of their country. Is it any wonder that when these men set the example of disrespect for law the criminal classes should follow them ?". Supporting this view, Dr. Dana, writing ...
