HOME GOSSIP JOTTINGS. J. W. [Newspaper Article] — The Record and Emerald Hill and Sandridge Advertiser — 4 June 1874

SOUS GOSSIP JOTTINGS. (From cur own Correspondent,) J. w. Our last four weeks have boon busy ones in official, political, and fashionable circle.-. The Tiohborno case, has nearly : sunk into oblivion, notwithstanding the attempts made fo keep up the nuisauce. Charles Orton has rushed into print, and his statement has provoked indignant donjals from the sisters of Arthur Orton. This Wapping family is not without ability of a cer tain : unenviable kind. Mrs. Pittendreigh, the widow of a law clerk, immortalised by Dr. Kencaly as a manufacturer of forged correspondence, has also come to the front with her statement ; there is a turning of the tables on the " claimant" in her story. The worst feature of the whole series of statements is this—so much is credited to the dead. As to the rerersal of the sentence 011 the " claimant," because sentence was passed out of term, it really reads like poking fun at the Bench. Such an end to such a trial ought to end many old legal usages. Ledru Roll...

HolloKuy's Ointment and Pills.—Chest Pre servative?.—At all seasons of tho year tho rate of mortality from diseases of tho lungs is very great. Holloway' Ointment well rubbed upou tho chest, aided by his Pills, arrests all mischief. These cleansing medicaments exorcise a most salutary and restorative influence over the entire contents of tho pectoral cavity. Air tubes, nerves, blood vessels,{and all other tissues feol the wholesomely protective power, more particularly in their thoroughly purifying both venous and arterial blood by promoting the free circulation of air. Neither Ointment nor Pills contain auy noxious ingredient whatever, but their balsamic nature nourishes rather than irritates tho system, and kindly subdues all untoward symptoms, till all u well once mora.
