DERIZO.S O!CNOES Are taken in tleglectinga simple case of Piles. Any person takes serious chances in neglecting an attack of Piles, This ail. ment has a tendency to become chronic, and there is also danger of ulceration, and forming of fistula, both very difficult to cure. The safest remedy for any form of Piles, whether Itching or Protruding, Is Doean's Ointment. It causes no detention from daily occupation, and the many cures made by it have made it famous in every corner of the world. It enjoys a greater demand and more enthusiastic popularity than any other Pile remedy placed on the market. Mr. T. Bush, late of Hceny Street, Portland, and is now keeping the Cri terion Hotel at Coleralne, ays:-"Toen years ago Doan's Ointment cured me of tchiug Piles, ead I am still free of this terrible ailnfmn.

CU RRES P OiDE NC E It is to be disrinctly understood that we i, Co wta, identifyourselves with the opinion expressed by our cnrrespondents. RABBITS ON CROWN LANDS. (To the Editor.) Sir,-I observe that several self-im portant scribes in the country are busy writing about little or nothing, so I trust you will grant me space to call public attention to a crying evi! like the above. An immigrant from Eng land, while telling of the hardshids the once endured, mentioned that tracts of land, one or two hundred acres in ex. tent, were kept as game.preserves by the nobility, and the crops and pas tures of adjoinigg farmers suffered severely from the inroads of the rahb bits. "It is the same here," said his employer. '-It is even wo-se, for we could grow no crops at all on ,and ad joining the Government rabbit pre. serves." But it seems to me that the chief injustice to the taxpayer lies in the fact that men are paid by the Go ermment at the rate of £2 or £3 a week to do work in destroying ...
