The "Sydney Telegraph" states that on June 13 a public trial of the smoke-con« sumer invented and patented by Mr J. Woolgar, an engineer lately m the employ of the Christcliurcli (N.Z.) City Council, was given on the Haymarket reserve on one of John Fowler's large steam rollers. A number of prominent engineers, including Messrs Cruickshank and Norman Selfe, were present, and at the termination of the trial all expressed themselves highly m favor of the invention. The Rev. Father Goggan, of St Patrick s College, Wellington, will conclude his mission m Ashburton on Sunday next. The mission, up to the present, has been very successful. On Sunday next Mass will be celebrated at 9 and 11 a.m. as usual, and vespers at 7 p.m. In the afternoon, at 3 o'clock, the interesting ceremony of vespers I and the renewal of baptismal vows will be undertaken, and a large congregation is anticipated. A writer m the " Horticultural Times " of Mcty 17, speaking of Australian apples, says : —" These have a rosy taking appearance, as they lie exposed to view m the fruiterers' windows, especially the Australian Ribston Pippins. They are far more highly colored than our English fruit; the ground color is much lighter and brighter, and there is almost a total absence of that brown russety appearance that is so characteristic of Home-grown .samples. I wonder what those think about it now who, a quarter of a century ago, so loudly protested that the Ribston Pippin was worn out. But perhaps they do not look the way where these apples are to be seen. It suits them better, perhaps, to ignore their existence. They are quite free to do this, but the English people generally do not ignore them ; as a fact, they are willing to pay as much as twopence or threepence each for them." IS DEAFNESS INCURABLE ? J. II Nicholson, of 175 William Street, Melbourne, has proved otherwise by making a complete cure of Deafness and Noises m the head of over Years' Standing by a simple remedy and without th use of any " clap-trap " so called electro medication treatment. A full description of this remedy, which has cured thousands of other cases of long standing, will be sent FREE on application.
