Catarrh or thr Bladder. —Stinging .rotation, inflammation, all kidney and similar complaints, cured by “ Buchu-paiba.” The N.Z. Drug Co., General Agents. 3 Tic-Doloureux, Toothache, or any other neuralgic pain spcediiy yields to Baxter’s Anti Neuralgic Pills,

At Oamaru Mr Robinson, R. M., has decided that the railway regulation under whieh charges of driving at othsr than a walking pace across a railway crossing had been laid is ultra vires, and the charges were therefore dismissed. Wo understand there is some prob' ability of a cheap excursion train being j run from Christchurch and intermediate j stations to Ashburton in connection with j the forthcoming race meeting of the Ash- r burton Racing Club. T We would again remind our readers of r the concert to be given by the Sr John’s 1 Lodge, No 1858, E. 0., in the Masonic t Hall, Tancred street, this evening, Solos | will be contributed by Mesdames Hodge j and Crisp, Misies G. Gates, Kidd, and ( H. Barratt, Messrs H. A. Gatos, J. G. Rose, A. Harrison, D. Thomas, and other established favorites. Mr J. H. Clayton, a vocalist for whom we predict a most favorable reception, will make his debut before an Ashburton audience ; and a lady from Dunedin, posses el of a voice of exceptional quality and power, has very kindly consented to assist. Miss Emma Orr and Miss Williamson, two young ladies already well and favorably known in musical circles, will each play a pianoforte solo, and the nan musical portion of the community shou’d be attracted to to night’s concert by the probability of the Hon Mr Ballance, the Minister for Defence, extending his patronage to the entertainment. Mr Ballanc* is expected to arrive in town by the express this evening, and steps have been taken to secure his attendance at the concert. We would remind intending purchasers that the privileges in connection with the forthcoming Autumn Meeting of the Ashburton Racing Club, will be submitted to auction by Mr T. Bullock, at the Arcade to-morrow at I p.ra. As there is every promise of a large influx of visitors, and a most sujcesaiui meeting, the lota should prove oi unusual value. There was a batch of “railway crossing "cases at the R M. Court, Rakaia, yesterday. The defendants were cautioned and dismissed. Mr Foster, of the East Christchurch school, has, we undera’and, declined the vacant Inspectorship offered t > him by ; the North Canterbury Board of ifiduca- ’ lion, Mr B. Broomfield, who was recently • admitted to the Ashburton Hospital suffering from a severe injury to his hand. . of which we have already given particulars, has written to us expressing his appreciation of Dr Trevor’s surgical skill ■ and the master and matrons unremitting : care and attention. » The annual pariah meeting of St ! Stephen’s Church will ba held in the : schoolroom on Monday next, the 21th t April, at 733 p.m. It may ba mentioned j that a notice of motion has been given . dealing with the appropriation of seats in ' the Church [ The cases, Rakaia and Ashburton Forks , Railway Company v Ratepayers, set 1 down for hearing at the Racaia Resident > Magistrate’s Court on 20:h instant, have ■ been again postponed for a month, pend- • ing the completion of arrangements now f being made by the Governm ,nt for the . purchase of the railway. t Yesterday 48 men received passes to the Waiau at the Public Works office, Christf church. This makes a total of 180 passes issued since the ro commencement of the *■ unemployed agitation, a few weeks ago. r The Hon W. J. M. Larnaoh arrived in 5 Christchurch yesterday morning by the i Waihora. He left by train yesterday s for the Malvern district, and will spend - about a week examining the mineral der posits of the interior. j It has transpired that the Minister for , Defence, the :, on Mr Ballance, passed through Ashburton to Timaru by yester- ' day’s excursion train. Mr Ballance will 1 return to Ashburton by this evening’s I express, and wifi probably remain in town t to-morrow. Professor and Mrs Baldwin gave a most f successful entertainment at Timaru last - night. Amongst other questions put to Mrs Baldwin while in the clairvoyant |. state, a sportsman asked what would win the Timaru Steeplechase to-day. She i replied “ Lynwood," and ns will be seen from our sporting telegrams this evening 3 that horse did approp.-iate the race in - question. The Timaru Herald, referring I co the performance, says : —Additional interest was imparted to this part of the entertainment by a person rising in the audience and, after remarking that “ he had not seen anything re y wonderful so far,” asking if Mrs Baldwin c mid tell S him the number of his watch. This the 1 lady did correctly amidst great applause. t Wa are not prepared to say this part of the entertainment is not capable of a perfectly simple explanation, but there is no doubt the audience were thoroughly puz- : zled and impressed. 1 Mr W. J. Steward, the popular 1 MH R. for Waimate, arrived in AshhurJ ton by the express last evening. He will proceed South with the Hon Mr Ballance . to-morrow. j The rumor that Great Britain had ( ceded Penj Jeh to the Russians, is contradicted by a cablegram appearing in this issue A sub committee of the Ashburton ! Racing Cldb, appointed to report uuon : the employment of a totalisator and to suggest arrangements in connection with , the gates and passes will meet at the Club’s room to-morrow evening at e'ght o’clock. Another unfortunate.—Again we must draw the attention of our readers to the fact that a ,£2,424 stock of Clothing and General Drapery, in the estate of Dennis O’Connell, trading in Lyttelton and Cristchurch, now bankrupt, was purchased by H. E. May & Co., of the Hall, High street, for £954, or only a little over one-third of its value. H, E. M. and Co. are now selling it at half the marked price, which surely ought to secure a speedy clearance.
