Mis Fauny Dent, wife of a gentleman employed iv the Lunbton collieries, kindly allows us to publish the following factß of her interesting case and wonderful recovery, which we gather from her correspondence, aud which we will be glad to allow anyone to peruse who wishes to do ao. Mra Daut has been in a state of extreme debility for twelve years, frequently quite unable to do any work, the lightest kind causing great fatigue, with severe pains in the limba, back, and left side. So severe was the pain that she would have to ait or lie down frequently. Walking exerciae waa very trying and she could only walk very slowly. Sac had long seen Clements Tonic advertised, but like many more people, her husband was prejudiced against " patent medicints," but (now we use her own •words) " I knew 8 jmeone who had tried Clements Tonic, and I decided to get a bottle on the quiet and say nothing about it if did me no good. The effect I thought something wonderfu . I felt better after the first dose, and by the time I had taken half a bottle I was a different woman. My husband, friends, and neighbours soon noticed the change on me, aad they could not make it out. I had to tell the truth that it was C omenta Tonic waa making me atrong. 1 could not keep the aeoret, I was only too glad to give the credit to Clements Tonic. After finishing the bottle, work was no trouble to me, but rather a pleasure, and after doing a heavy day's washing I oould go for a walk instead of going to bed, aa alwaya happened before taking Clements Tonic. One of my neighbours said to me laat week— ' Why, Mrs. Dent, you are doing wonders this week, how is it you are bo strong ? ' She knew I had done more that week than I had been able to do in 12 years before (she had known me this time, for I am an old resident of this locality, having lived hare for 15 years). I replied : ' Yea I feel a wonder to myself, so I'll tell yon the seotet ; I have been taking Clements Tonic, and 1 cannot tell you the benefit I have derived from it. You know what my Bufferings have been, and now I have a genuine taste of good healtb .' " Mrs Dent wrote Us those partioulare of her remarkable cure in March. She wisely, however, decided to continue the medicine to " clinch the cure " as it were. Some time afterwards she wrote as follows f" Waratah Commonage, N.S.W.,— Dear Sir, — It is with great pleasure that I pen these few lin s 1 have been as you know a great sufferer from weakaess and debility for yeare. I was under several doctora, but they never done me any good. I deapaired of ever being better, bnt aa I stated in my last letter, I saw Clements Tonio advertised. I tried a bottle and its effect: was aomethiug wonderful. I Ult bitter almost immediately, . and was a hew woman after fiuiabing the firso bottle. Before taking Clements Tonic it was a great trouble ' even to do a little houaework, but afterwards my work was a pleasure, and my friends .and neighbours were aurprised at the ohange in me. I cannot say too much in praise of i f , and can only grotefully deaorioe my case, and strong ly td vise all who Buffer from weakness, backache, pain in the aide, ringing noises in the ears, «ud shortness of breath, to take Clements Tonio. I feel sure it w.l do the-m as much good as it has done ma.— Your gratefully, "Fanny Dent,
The Daily News says :— Among other offerings towards tho alleviation of the fi>miue-stricken people, the troops of the Ode*«a garrison have spontaneously requested th it their daily ration of 31b. of bread be reduced to 2lb. This wll give an aggregate donation of 450 lb. per day. It is declared that the rain-making experiments in America by means of explosions, either on the ground or in the upper air, have been an utter failure. The fund being raised in London for tho asaistanoe of the persecuted Jews in Rutsia is reaching propor.ions worthy of the munifioenoe of their English brethren. The movement is promoted by the Russia Jewish Committee that administered the Mansioi House Fund in 1182. Baron Rothschild is at its h«ad, and i 3 one of the most munificent contributors to a fund which now approaches £75,000. This is, of course, quire apart from B*ron Hiraca's scheme, thougti it will work in sympathy with that or any other means of delivering the hapless Jews from the tyranny of the Cz ir. The following sad story is reported from Montauban. A youug married lady, Madame Joffis, living at Mira'wl, near Montauban, had a cataleptic se znre when in childbed. Two days passed aud th<-r« w; s no sign of returning animation, v/aiui, indeed, was not expected, as the lidyU fr^uda all believed her dead. The fu ieral was arranged and u-trried out, aud the mourners returned to the bouse. Shorty afterwards the undert iker c idua'ly -e-narao I that when the corpse wis put into the coffin, he noticed that tho b;d was slightly warm where the bo ly had I do. On hearing this the husband ius'autly went to the burial ground and had tbe coffin taken from the grave and opened. To his horror he then found the hody turned over, the shroud torn, and the fingers of one hand bleeding, as if from a desperate attempt <.» remove the coffin, lid, but it wis too la'«'. His wife, who wai uudoubted'y alive when buried, had since beeu suff -cated. A story is told by a recent visitor to Mount O >ok, which shows how costly is cartage in tv it direction. Oae of the coach stages is S > >oug that it is customary for tourists to oarry with them from the previous stopping pace some sort of a snack to eat on the way. Tbe triveller ordered two snacks to be put up, for himself and a companion ; " anything bat mutton" would do, and he was offered and accepted tin beef. When opened at midday however the "eternal mutton" was f uud in place of the tinned beef promised. Oo their return to the house it was explained that it was with much regret that the mutton wad substituted for the promised beef, but they "could not afford" the latter at the pr cc. And the price of the » c snack " was half a crown. — Timaru Herald. A most brutal outrage has been perpetrated on a donkey, the property of a farmer named John Kane, near Gal way. Some rufliin3 doubled down the ears of the animal, aud ttien out them across wir.h a knife, thns infl.otii g two cuts oa each ear, leaving the mere skiu uusevered,by which the tops hung over the ey-a, blinding it with tho blood. Not satisfied with this torture, they proceeded to cud the tut on the fl )shy part underneath, and this was likewise left hanging by the mere skiD. No cause can be assigned for the outragp. Our colonial governments are profesedly not merely non-sectarian, but non-religious. The Government of Tasmania is proved by the following incident to be non-human, aud it is quite within the bounds of belief that the Gjvernnunt of every other Australasian oolony would act simi arly in a similar case .' Aa vi fortunate woman walked from Laanceaton to Hobart recently with a twoyear-old child to see her husband, who had bean sent to gaol. She was nine days doing the journey of 120 miles. The Benevolent Society apptad for a free pass for the return j mrney, but received the callous reply from the Government that she oaly wanted rest, when she oould go back the way she came. The Government thus condemned her and her child ts walk 120 miles, although at the time they were carrying pas«engers to the Liunoeston Exhibition for 3s 41 ! The Benevolent Society, with more charity paid her fare. Under the heading «' A Hint to Fishbreeders," in a Home paper, Mr J. Armistead of the Fishery, Dumfries, who has the reputation of being the first man to make a commercial sucoeaa of the oulture of fish, says thit to turn a lot of small fry into rivers simply means murdering them, aa they are swallowed up by the large fiah. The best way ia to tarn them into the smill tributaries running into the lakes or into ponds made for that purpose. In these plaoes the results are satisfactory. Carried on properly, there was nothing more certain than that excellent results would follow from fish culture. Turning out 10,000 fry into a river is, he considers, a mere nothing ; in America they deal with them by the million. Prank Buokland reckoned that not one egg io a thousand, if left to nature, prodaoea a mature fish. By artificial cultivation we succeed much better than this.
