The Majesty op the Law. —An odd scene occurred at the Auckland Police Court a few days ago. A stone-cutter outside disturbed the proceedings by the noise of his work, and after two messages had in vain been sent to him to desist he was, much to his astonishment, brought before the Court by a policeman. He pleaded that he had to work for his living, and said he was making the stones light in order that they might be conveyed to the new Court House. Mi’. Barstow, R.M.—The few pounds you take off them will not make much difference. The Stonemason—l am taking a good many pounds off them. His Worship—lf you continue to interrupt the Court I shall take a good many pounds off you ! Mr. Burns—l have not many pounds to take. Will your Worship send me word when I may begin 1 His Worship promised that he would, and Mr. Burns left the Court. Holloway’s Ointment and Pills,— Rheumatic Pains, Tic-Doloreaux. —These diseases are unfortunately very prevalent in this country, and are frequently most distressing, sometimes for years baffling all medical skill to alleviate the sufferings of the victim. Innocase have Holloway’s Ointment and Pills lailed to produce a cure. The Ointment produces a peculiar and soothing influence over the nerves and muscles, relaxing spasms and subduing pain. The attack soon becomes milder and the intervals between the paroxysms longer; until they cease altogether. The Pills restore the body from a weak and debilitated condition to a state of health and strength. Persons bedridden for months with rheumatic pains and dwellings, after using the Ointment have been cured in an incredible short period.— Advt.
