AUSTRALIA'S SINCERITY 'INTEREST DOWN WHEN WORLD CONVINCED' DIRECTOR^ VIEW 'Bankers and others who, for years, have declaimed loudly against reckless borrowing, are to-day being charged with raising interest rates.

'When the kidneys fail in their work yon get those first symptoms of backache, weak ness, headache, depression, then loss of vitality and vigour.
