Many diseases are very depressing in their worst stages, and we get to the very brink sometimes; yet the hope of survival is great. Doan's Backache Kidney Pills have brought back many from the verge, and given them a new lease of life. The following case should be o£ in terest. Read it: Mr. David Forty, Railway-crescent, Korumburra, says:-"My occupation was that of a miner, and through having to work in wet and damp places I get a cold in niy kidneys. '! hereafter I suffered agonies from backache, and at times I was so bad -hat I could not move, and had to be even turned in my bed.

Webb was always in the right place on Saturday and played a splen did-game. The same may be said of J. Finlayson, who is a particularly fine mark, and put in some useful work for his side. Bung Finch, together with Feathers Neale, put in some very good work, Bung's marking and kicking being a treat so watch. Bill. Gannon and Steve Seamer were both in good form, and were of valu able assistance to their side. Billy Fern, though not in the best of condition, was as sure a forward as the best.
