A swallow can fly about six hundred miles a day. Fifty-five thousand people were convicted of criminal offences in New York last year. For the first time in the state of Mississippi a white man has been hanged for the murder of a negro. The average number of billiard balls cut from the tusks of an elephant is ten—five from each tusk. A giant who has just died in Italy had some time previously sold his skeleton to a Museum in Rome for 10,900 francs. Mr Hugo Friedlander gives us an instance of quick despatch of cable telegrams. He sent a message to London, which left the Ashburton telegraph office at 5 minutes to 8 on Monday night, and the reply thereto was received by Mr Friedlander at 15 minutes to 11 this morning. The demand for last evening's issue of the "Guardian," containing an extended notice of the Fancy Dress Ball, was so great that many subscribers and others who applied for extra copies of the paper could not be supplied. In order to meet the demand we have reprinted the report, which will be found on the fourth page of this issue. " i The National Debt of England has been I reduced during the last three years by "leaps and bounds." The total reduction for 1889 reached £8,295,005. This amount, added to the reductions of the previous two years, made a grand total of £23,323,000. This is the largest amount ever paid during the same length of time. Mr Walker, M. H. R., addressed tb c Rakaia portion of his constituency in the Town Hall last evening. There was a moderate attendance, and Mr E. S. Coster, chairman of the Road Board, occupied the chair. Mr Walker criticised adversely the land settlement and railway management policy of the Ministry and argued that if these subjects received proper attention taxation would be very considerably lightened. He laid stress on the fact that the Hon. Mr Fergus had made no explanation in rega.xd to his " repudiated " speech, and deduced from this that the speech was only a " feeler," but finding it unpopular, the Government hastily disowned it. Mr Walker expressed regret that under the altered boundaries Rakaia would no longer be included in his electorate. At the conclusion of the address, Mr O. Hardy, in moving a vote of thanks, eulogised Mr Walker for his public services as representtative of the district, and regretted that he would not be able to come forward again. The vote of thanks was seconded by Mr j Dunford, and carried unanimously, three i cheers being hearfcly given for Mr Walker. j The best medicine is Sander and Sons' Eucalpyti Extract. Test its eminent powerful effecta in coughs, colds, influenza, etc.— the relief is instantaneous. Thousands give the-most gratifying testimony. His Majesty the King of Italy and medical syndicates all j over the world are its patrons. Read the ! official reports that accompany each bottle. ', We have no occasion to offer rewards in proof ! of the genuineness of our references. The official reports of medical clinics and universities, the official communications of the Consul-General for Italy at Melbourne ; the diploma awarded International Exhibition, J Amsterdam —all these are authentic docu- } ments, and, as such, not open to doubt. W, add here epitome of one of the various cases treated at the clinic of Schultz, M.P.. Pro^ fessor, etc.—" C. 8., 24 years old; conges* tional abscess on the thigh. Incisions made in two places. Although lister's dressing was applied, the secretion became, two days later, very copious, and had adopted a foetid decomposed character. The temperature roae ■enormously. In consequence the dressing was removed and in its place were made during the day-time repeated irrigations with Eucalypti Extract. The offensive fceter disappeared very soon, the. fever abated within a few days, and the patient recovered after the lapse of several weeks. In this instance we must not lose sight of the fact that the latter treatment saved the patient's life,' 1 — (Advt.) 3 There is now to be seen in the shop window of Messrs J. Scaly and C 0.,, East street, a ollection of apples showing some of the sorts grown at the nurseries, Riverbank, that will repay inspection by any one who contemplates planting fruit plants. There are upwards of fifty different kinds shown, all valuable, long keeping sorts. For sizo, color, and general excellence they are \xy far the finest that have been shown in Aahburton the cason.—(Advt __ Public Notices. " ""dancing class.
