A man on deck of a vessel at sea can see about five miles. From the Hamilton racecourse comes a typical tale of Scotch shrewdness. A simple looking farm servant wass one of a group surrounding a " purse trick " operator, who, i dropping* couple of sovereigns and other coins into the purse, offered the same, contents and all, for half-a-crown. The hauflin ■peculated, and withdrew a little distance to examine his prize, accompanied by half*dozen curious spectators, who were prepared to laugh at the victim. The purse was opened; and found to contain a sixpence, a threepenny piece, and a few coppers. No sac bad," said the purchaser quietly ; I eied tipttence for that bad half-croon twa weeks syne, an' I cudna' pass it awa onywheer." « Hoixoway's Ointment and Pills. ~ Coughs, Influenza.-The soothing properties of these medicaments render them well worthy of trial in all diseases of the respiratory organs. In common colds and influenza the pills, taken internally, and the ointment rubbed over the cheat and throat, are exceeding efficacious. When influenza is epidemic this treatment ia the easiest, safest, and surest, Holloway's Pills purify the blood, remove all obstacles to its free circulation through tha luugs, relieve the overgorged air tubes, and lender respiration free, without reducing the strength, iri-itat-ing the nerves, or depressing the spirits; such are the ready means df escaping from Buffering when afflicted with colds, coughs, bronchitis, and other chest complaints, by which the health of so many is seriously and permanently injured in most countries.
