About three hundred deaths ooour every year m London through lamps exploding, A Mr Porter, one of (he unemployed, attending a meeting on the labour question at Auokland, made a bold proposal. He insisted that there should be a half-time system for public aod municipal works, not that one olass should have constant employment and others be entirely without work. He Baid that they should petition Parliament on this subjeot, for they bad an equal right to the expenditure on publio works. They had theories from every pulpit m Auokland, but no one propounded a remedy. No one there was prepared to endorse this proposal. A correspondent of the " Southland News " states thp.t a resident of the Western distriot well known for his very thrifty disposition, walked from Otautau to Riverton and baok a few months ago, presumably to save the train fare, but when questioned on the subject he said he would rather walk— he liked to bo the country. This was eolipsed by a still more recent performanoo, when he walked 70 miles to save something under 109, though m the long run it must have oost him that sum m hotel expenses- This very thrifty person is generally supposed to be worth a cool £1000. Riding or driving from Ashburton to Ohriatohuroh and baok is nothing to this.

We dip the following important testimonial from the " Illawarra Meroury " (N.S.W.) of the 30th Maroh. It needs no comment : — " Mr John Loveday, o! the Bulli Mountain, writes to us that after suffering for four years with aoute gravel, he has experienced almost oomplete relief by using Sander and Sons' Euoalypti Extraot. He says seeing the said Extraot advertised m the 'Illawarra Meroury,' his intense suffering induoed him to obtain a bottle of the medioiue from Mr Hosking, ohemist, of this town, and that the use of it gave him great relief at onoe, He states that between the 10th Maroh instant, when he obtained the first bottle of the extraot, and the 19th, the use of that medioine continued to' afford him relief, to which he had been a stranger for four years. Mr Loveday writes also that he has found the Euoalypti Extraot a cure for rheumatism as well as gravel. He requesta us to publish this information through the ' Meroury.' We have much pleasure m complying with Mr Loveday'B request, whose word cannot be doubted, and who oan have no objeot m view other than a pure desire to benefit suffering humanity." — )Advt. 2
