HEARD AT CANBERRA The rain during the week-end to tally upset the tennis fixtures, and disappointed those who had already recorded a 3-point victory. Eastlake were counting on a 3 point win in each grade. Still, seven days is not long to wait. Cheer up! The selection of the Eastlake team is a minor factor in comparison .to the drafting of the Ladder Competi tion. In. the teams the position is who is the best four? On the lad der-well, who is No. 2?

Withs' Circus WORTHY TRADITIONS WORTHILY MAINTAINED. On last New Year's Day Wirths Circus entered upon the 46th year of its existence and when the huge combination visits Queanbeyan for one night only, on Saturday, May 23rd., it will be readily recognised that the enviable reputation which it has built up during that period is being most capably maintained, the standard of entertainment presen ted being on an even higher plane than ever before. This season's programme is cram med from end to end with delights for young and old, while the menag erie, which has had its inhabitants added to since its last visit to this centre, is a complete education in itself. With so many high-class acts, it is most difficult to differentiate, but one feature that will appeal to the majority of patrons will be the prominent part which the trained elephants play. The young elephants which Wirth Bros. imported from Burma a couple of years ago have made wonderful progress. A truly delightful act is that...

Take Doan's Backache Kidney Pills in time and relief is certain. Mrs. M. A. Griffiths, Morrissett Street, Queanbeyan, says: "My son suffered tortures from backache and kidney trouble, and at times he was so bad that he could scarcely get about. This ailment handicapped him a lot and when he stooped or moved quickly a pain used to dart ,through his kidneys, that nearly took his breath away. The trouble started through a strain. After a few doses of Doan's Backache Kid ney Pills; however, his back felt a little easier and two bottles effected a complete. cure. He has been quite right for some time now, so it l not alig...
