In Luck’s Way. —Some fellows are born lucky, but others have to wait contentedly to see what Dame Fortune will do for them. Among the latter is Mr Alexander M‘Gee, of Nelson, but he cannot complain of his treatment by the fickle goddess. He delights (says the Mail) in the Hon. Mr Dick’s bete noir—a sweep—no play upon words is intended, —and no wonder ; for with him to invest a pound is almost equivalent to receiving some hundreds in return. In less than three years he has won three first prizes, three seconds, and five thirds, and now he has made another fine speculation. He put a pound or two into Goyder’s Melbourne sweep of L 3,500, which was to be apportioned among three races at the late Victorian meeting—viz., the Champion Stakes, the Midsummer Handicap, and the Three-year-old Handicap, and the latter event was won by Pell Mell, which was drawn by the lucky Alick, who does not yet know the precise amount to which he is entitled, but is under the impression that, after setting apart a liberal sum for the champagne in which his friends will be invited to drink his health, a few hundreds will still be left to him for future, investment. Holloway’s Pills. Liver Complaints.—The digestion cannot be long so seriously disordered without the derangement being perceptible on the countenance. These pills prevent both unpleasant I consequences ; they improve the appetite and with the increase of desire for food, they augment the powers of digestion and assimilation in the stomach. Holloways Pills deal most satisfactorily with deranged or diseased conditions of the many organs engaged in extracting nourishment for our bodies from' our various diets—as the liver, stomach, and bowels, over all of which they exercise the most salutary control. By resorting at an early stage of this malady to these purifiying and laxative Pills, the dyspeptic is speedily restored o health and strength, and his sallowness radually vanishes.—[Advt.]
