CyCli ng. [Conttribued by the Dunlop Tire Com pany of Australasia] The wonderful strides made in avia tion have braen made manifest to hun. oreds of thousands of Victorians who who recently had the pleasure of wit nessing H. Iawkei's splendid flights on his Sopwit h iBiplane. In this con nection few people realize the important part the Dunlop tyre has played in the advance of .avia:ion throughout the wor'd, and how the resilent pneumatic tyred wheels enable the aeroplane to c me to earth wi h the minimum of concussion. thus obviating the breakage of the delicate mechanismn But after all it is only history repearing itse3f, and it is ri markable what and influence the 'pneunatic tyre has had on the progress of locomotion.

DRIK DRIK. From our Correspondeut.) Last Sunday I was speaking to Con. stable Consadine (who is relieving Con stable McLean at Dartmoor) ho had in his charge?a man supposed to be an es caped lunatic. Very little is known about him here. For several days he was seen at a distance. On Saturday last Constable Considine and several young men were searching for him and found his camp. so very early on Sun day morning they surrounded the camp and took him quietly. lie was in a very ragged and dirty condition. The first thing done was to give him a good wash and provide him with clothes and something to cat. They waited at the post-office until Constable McLean brought a trap and took him away to Dartmoor. On Monday they took him to Heywood. Poor fellow, he seemed very quiet and harmless.

The slight heladache, bad breath, and discolored tongue, are the index to a disordered stomach, and theo necessity of keeping a safe, sure, and reliable remedy in the house is apparent. By following such a course the more expensive method of calling in a doctor will be quite unnecessary. Be you...
