On account of the fall in the price of flax the New Zealand Shipping Company and Shaw, Savill and Albion Company have reduced the freight on that product to London by 10a per ton, thus making it 90s by steamer and 80s by sailing vessels. A pathetic incident of the late floods at Walgett is related in a telegram to the " Sydney Morning Herald," which says that Judge Bennet opened the Court on the Bth in the most trying circumstances, there being 70 people sheltered in the Courthouse. His Honour and the officials were conveyed in a boat by the police from the balcony of the hotel to the court. When' the court was opened, the bench and the jury boxes were crammed with distressed women I md children drenched with water. Their plight seemed most pitiful, the judge sitting m their midst. The prisoners were conveyed in a boat from the gaol to the court.
HOW PILLS ARE MADE. The Custom of taking medicine in the form of pills dates far back in history. The object is to enable us to swallow easily in a condensed form disagreeable and nauseous, but very useful, drugs. To what vast I dimensions pill taking has grown may b imagined, when we say that in England alon about 2,000,000,000 (two thousand million) pills are consumed every year. In early days, pills were made slowly by hand, as the demand was comparatively small. Today they are produced in infinitely greater rapidity by machines especially contrived fpr the purpose, and with greater accuracy, too, in the proportions of the various ingredients employed,
No form of medication can be better than a pill, provided only it is iutelligently pre« pared. But right here occurs the difficulty. Easy as it may seem to make a pill, or a million of them there are really very few pills that can be honestly commended for popular use, Most of them either undershoot or overshoot the mark, As everybody takes'pills of some kind, it may be well to mention what a good, safe, and reliable pill should be. Now, when one feela dull and sleepy, and has more or less pains in the head,'sides, and back, he may be sure his ■vjuV.v..,-,- ■'■! .'l. -.IV-i:v^v::i;Y T ■ i-- !:•• ■:.;■:!■:... .-■■■.: •■:" !is .. ■ -,:.- ■■.!.-: .-.jl:!!- -.„•■: :—■: i}"\. Jt will act like a charm by stimulating the liver into doing its duty, and ridding the digestive organs qf the accumulated poisonous matter.
But the good pill does not gripe and pain us, neither does it make us sick and miserable for a few hours or a whole day. It acts on the entire glandular system at the same time, else the after effects of the pill will be worse than the disease itself, The griping caused by mpst pills is the result of irritating drugs which they contain, Such pills are harmful, and should never be used. They sometimes even produce hemorrhoids. Without having any particular desire to praise one pill above another, we may, nevertheless, name Mother Seigel's Pills, manufactured by the wellknown house of A. J. White, Limited, 35 Farriugdon Road, London, and now sold by all chemists and medicine vendors, as the only one we know of that actually possess every desirable quality. They remove the nrpssure upon the brain, correct the liver, and cause the .bowels to act with ease and egularity. . They never gripe or produce the slightest sickness Pf the stomach, or; any other unpleasant feeling or symptom. Neither do they induce further constipation, as nearly all other pills do. As a further and crowning merit, Mother Seigel's Piljs are covered with a tasteless ancf harmless coatipg, which causes them to resemble pearls, thus rendering them as pleasant to the palate as they are effective in curing diseases. If you have a severe cold and are threatened with a fever, with pains in the head, back and Hmbs, one or two doses will break up the cold and prevent the fever. A coated tongue with a brackish Liisfu in the mouth is ciniscd by foul matter in the tU)i|)iicli, j\ dose of iSei/jel's Pills will effect a speedy euro. Oftentimes partially decayed food in the stomach and bowels produces wekucss, nausea, etc. Cleanse the bowels with a dose of thefcc pills, and good health will follow. LJnlikc many kinds of pills, they do not make you feel worse before you arc better. They are, without doubt,, t'lie be.-a family physic ever discovered. Tliey remove all obstruction to the natural functions in itlier sex without any unpleasant effects.
