Dear Wagering. —There are gayyouths down in Melton. One of them made a bet that he would ride his horse upstairs into the drawing-room of the house and down again. The first part of the task was accomplished in safety, but once in the drawing-room the horse refused to come down, and nothing earthly would move him. So after leaving him there for three days and nights, the side wall had to be taken down, and the animal rescued in a horse-box, which was elevated to his assistance by a steam crane. This clever and humorous joke cost somewhere about L2oo. —The World. Holloway’s Pills. —The extraordinary range of temperature prevailing in our climate is extremely trying to the delicate-chested, the weak and nervous. All troubled by these afflictions should resolve to resort to the strengthening and regulating medicine immediately they perceive in themselves discomfort of that feeling of restlessness which betokens clis-. ordered digestion and defective secretion or bile. One of Holloway’s Pills taken about noon and followed at bed-time by a dose sufficiently large to act apperiently will speedily recruit the faulty functions, and restore order throughout the whole system. A treatment so safe in operation and so successful in result should be known and practised when, from cold and sundry other causes, disease is attempting to gain a vexatious footing.—Advt.
