Dear Sir,-I can with confidence bear testimony to the wonderful cfficacy of Ciements Tonic. For years I have been periodically attacked, and a great sufferer from neuralgia and general debility, and any one who has ever been afflicted with such nervous misery can form an idea of what I suffered. I had also chronic indigestion, and an utter dislike to exert myself. The neuralgia was so severe that I have paced the hall all night and the agony was so excrucia ting that I was almost out of my mind. I tried all so-called remedies, also galvanic treatment, which did no good. At last a friend recommended Clements Tonic, and I was so disheartened that I purchased a small bottle aud after the second dose felt great relief. I continued itB use ncd am thankful to say that after twenty-four hours the pain had disappeared and I was free from the nervous terror. I continued Clements Tonic...

A SIGN of the times. The Eadical papers are calling the Chief Justice of Queensland Charley Lilley. JUDGE MILLEE opened the District Court at Clermont last Monday. There were 110 criminal coses. A NEWSPAPER suggests that consi dering the utterly horrible manner in which Mrs. Mbntague treated her children common humanity would suggest that the infant about to be born should be discharged from gaol as eoon as possible, and that the mother should be kept in gaol until it is grown up.

More Flood Tarns. ALL hands felt sorry for Boundary rider Joe and his good-looking little wife. "Maggie was sucli' a dear little thing," said Joe, wiping the tears from his eyes, "the sweet little six-year old." The Boss and Milligan cheered the unfortunate couple up a bit, and soon the little woman began to brighten. At about 10 o'clock Joe said he would canter across to his place to see if anything could be done, the water having receded rapidly. The men watched him floundering through mud and water until he came to the spot where the raft had canted over and the child was lost. " He is looking for the body," whis pered l'orkey. " No! sec he is staring at something among the limbs. He is off his horse, and climbing as if for his life." At tention was at once centred on the movements of Joe, who could be distinctly seen by the majority of the bushmen.
