It will be in the recollection of the public that my collection of apples shown in Mr Clayton's shop in East street, being sixty-six varieties, and also those which took two first awards at the Dunedin Exhibition and \ arious other places, was pronounced to be the largest and best ever shown in the Ashburton county. I would draw theii attention my advertisement elsewhere. As only work on blight-proof stocks than which no other stocks can be relied upon, the roots of my apple trees do not require to be washed before sending out. James Porter, nursery, man, Allenton.—(Advt 1) There is now to be scon in the shop window of Messrs J. Scaly and Co., East street, colloctio of apples showing some of the sortl grown at the nurseries, Riverbank, that wil repay inspection by any one who contemlates planting fruit plants. There are upwards of fifty different kinds shown, all valuable, long keeping sorts. For size color, and general excellence they are by far the finest that have been shown in Ashburton this season (Advt. We wish to call the attention of our readers to the sale of trees by Mr T. Bullock.at Mr J. Thomas' nursery, North belt, on Monday next. The apple trees are proved good sorts, as Mr Thomas has over 200 varities in his orchard, but his experience lias made him confine his nursery stock to aixnit 50 of these, they being found most suitable for the district for bearing properties, quality, and value as a crop. Some of these are blight proof both roots and branches, and some are long keepers and suitable for export, viz.—Lord Wolseley; Stone, Golden, Sturmcr, and Allonsbury pippins ; Scarlet, Nonpariel, IVajstin, and many others, both early and late varieties for kitchen and dessert use. A number of specimen fruits from this orchard were exhibited this season in Mr Page's windows and much admired for their color, size and symmetry.—(Advt.) We clip the following important testimonial from the '' Ilia warm Mercury " (N. S. W.) of the 30th March. It needs no comment: — '" Mr John Loveday, of the Bulli Mountain, Writes to us that after suffering for four years with acute gravel, he has experienced almost complete relief by using Sander and Sons' Eucalyptic Extract. He says :—" Seeing the said Extract advertised in the ' Ulawarra Mercury,' his intense suffering indi;cod him to obtain a bottle of the medicine from Mr Hosking, chemist, of this town, and that the use of it gave him great relief at once. He states that between 10th March inst., when he obtained the first bottle of the extract, and the . 19th, the use of that medicine continued to afford him relief, to which he had been a stranger for four years. Mr Loveday writes also that he has found the Eucalypti Extract a cure for rheumatism as well as.gravel. He requests us to publish this information through the ' Mercury.' We have much pleasure in complying with Mr Lovcday's request, whose word cannot be doubted, and who can have no object in view other than a pure desire to benefit suffering humanity."—(Advt.) 2 THE MIRROR/ A HIGH-CLASS Weekly, Socia Political, Literary, and Dramati paper, to be published every FRIDAY price 3d, by the Centennial Printing ar\d Publishing Company, Limited, Mcl bourne Place, Ru '■ell Street, Melboune CHEAP TURNIP LAND ~ FOR SALE, a conveniently situated Block of 500 ACRES, Partly fenced and well watered.
