ANAEMIA EATS UP VITALITY. | WHYSHOULD GIRLS RENOUNCE THE PLEASURES AND COM FORTS OF LIFE? I DR. WILLIAMS' PINK PILLS FOR PALE PEOPLE WILL CURE YOU. My daughter had been strong and healthy until almost two years ago, said Mrs. Bo we, of North Maldron, j Victoria, to our reporter, when she grew very pale and thin. She became weak and low-spirited, lost her appetite, her sleep was troubled and restless, and and the least exertion fatigued her—in feet she had to take her sister's arm for support when oat walking. She was of a wonderfully active and cheerful dis position before this change took place, and the alteration, therefore, caused us great concern, and medical aid was sought. Bnt no good resulted. Sev eral medicines were tried, but she be came weaker and more listless every day. Tbe doctor said she was suffering from anaemia,-or poorness of blood. We then became seriously alarmed, and con sulted different medical men, who pre scribed, and told Miss May to take as much exercise as...

SEVERE FIGHTING BY THE TRIBESMEN. SIXTY BRITISH SOLDIERS KILLED. Lo if Doff, December 17. Farther particulars have been ] received of the terrible experiences1 of the British troops, whilst march ing1 from Sberkel to Barkai. The fighting was incessant both night and day, and it was only with extreme difficulty that General Westmaootfc's rear-guard repelled the fierce and persistent attempts of the tribesmen to outflank them. The pooch of ammunition of the British troops was once exhausted, and they were in a grave peril, until | the cartridge cases were replenished. I When General Westmacott halted' on the hillside at night, the tribes men desperately charged the camp, almost to bayonet point, but were ultimately repelled by the withering fire. The British lost sixty men, who were killed, whilst the tribesmen's punishment was the severest of the campaign.

Mr. i*i has let Tims and party a tribute on "hia^Pilendini lease, and the tribaters are noir at work on it. All the holdings are being steadily worked, bat there is nothing sensational to report.

THE WEATHER. SPLENDID RAINS. [Newspaper Article] — The Pilbarra Goldfield News — 24 December 1897
THE WEATHER. SPLENDID RAINS. Since Saturday last, the weather has. changed wonderfully, and the ther mometer, at the post office, which stood at 114 degrees in the shade on Monday, fell to 76 on Wednesday. Rain is reported from alt the outlying localities, and on the whole, it appears to be general throughout the district In town intermittent showers fell on Saturday, Sunday, Monday and Tuesday, but on Wednesday it settled down to good steady rain, which con tinued the whole of the day. There is not the slightest doubt these rains will do good to the country, and be of immense benefit to the squatting fraternity, who have, in the past, suffered greatly on account of droughts and bad seasons. Jupiter Fluvius has at last turned his attention towards us, and cheered the hearts of the people of this part of the North-West, who have had a long, weary, and monotonous share of sunshiny weather, and it is to be hoped he will continue the good work he has began. It appears that a good season...

CRICKET CHATTER. (Br " Short Slip.) The first test match between England and Australia h over, and the repre sentatives of the Lion gave those of the Kangaroo a severe drubbing. " England wen by nine wickets," was the result of the above match as re ceived by wire, and there was certainly either weeping or gnashing of teeth in the Australians camp, or perhaps they I were engaged in dividing the ' spoils,' aB such a beating can hardly be credited to 1 straight' play on the part of our boys. 'Did they throw us over!' may be asked, but I do not say they did, as perhaps the Englishmen were far too many for them. • • • It is to be hoped that the gentlemanly game of cricket ia not going to be classed along with horse racing and othei audacious money-making concerns. To play cricket for tho sake of one's couutry, should always be the aim and object of those who take part in it, and not for the ' gate.' I do not wish to impute for one moment that the Aus tralians, in the match just finished...
