A BOLD ASSERTION.
.**. it in an old saying that "familiarity breeds contempt" ; lots of truth in it, too. A good fellow always "wears well," and so it is with many things in everyday life. Tho good things wear well; they .last, increase in popularity. 'Praise must bo earned, and praise l.'or Doau's Backache Kidney Fills i;.us boon justly earned in New ZerJrtnci. Year after year their good work has continued, until there are few householders not familiar with the mune of Doan. It's a bold assertion to make that nothing in modern, medicine can sho,w such a record. But the proof of it lies in tho endorsement of people we know. Here's a case:— Mrs Lockhaid, 159 Gox Street, Ashburton, says:—"Sixteen years ago Doan's Backache Kidney Fills cured mo of kidney trouble,' and I am still well to-day. For years before 1 used this remedy I suffered severely, wiill pains in tho small of my back, giddiness, and headaches. The backache was at times so bad that I could scarcely turn in bed, and every movement added to ray suffering. The doctors said indigestion was tho cause of my ill-health, but although I took all sorts of medicines supposed to be for this complaint, none of them gave me any relief.- At last I began to think my kidueys were out of order, and decided to try Doan's Backache Kidney Pills. I look a course of these Pills-, carefully following the directions, and they cured me for good, for I nave been well for 16.years.. Doan's backache Kidney Pills are excellent for kidney trouble. They act as o. tonic and cure at the same time. Anyone with deranged kidneys should give this grand remedy a trial." > Doan's Backache Kidney Pills are sold by all chemists- and storekeepers at 3s per bottle (six bottles 16s 6d), or will be posted on receipt of price by Foster-McOlelian Co., ' 76 Pitt Street, Sydney.

no more. He has drained his beer, hay .drunk tlie King's health in grog; and now for a good smoke to crown it all. Gigajrs, pipes, and eigerettes arc provided. And next for the music. , What Jack -loves above, all is' a song with a rousing chorus; and there is plenty of talent to keep the concert going for hours, if they wish it. If the siiiger has a voice like a disabled fog-horn, no matter so long as the song has ft good chorus in which Jack can do his bit-towards "raising the roof." Thus song and chorus and rapturous applause follow in. sequence until Jack, hoarse of voice and purple in face, has at' last had enough, and is ready for a dance or any other fun on deck. After a second pint of beer, "Hands to dance and skylark"^ is piped, and to the lilt of the band, or the strains ol" a concertina, Jack will trip and gambol until his legs ache with dancing and his sides with laughter. But, tired as he is, he is game for any lark that is going; and, when the call is made, he rushes with his fellows to the, officers' quarters,'to join in carrying one popular officer after another shoulder high round the 6hip to the noisy refrain, "For He's a Jolly Good Fellow." s Thus in dance and song, skylarking, and frolic of all sorts, the hours pass all 'too quickly, until at last "Out pipes" is. sounded, and Jack reluotantly turns into his hammock—weary, it is true, but blissfully happy in the knowledge that he has spent his Christmas Day as jovially as any man in the Empire.
