TO THF EDITOR. Sir,—As the typhoid scourge seems somewhat prevalent in this colony, and more or less so in Dunedin, the following extract from a paper may be of interest. "A lady correspondent writes to the • Sydney Herald':—' Will you publish a simple but almost certain preventative for typhoid, which seems unfortunately to be somewhat on the increase. Let all mothers of families give their children rectified spirits of turpentine, in tho following quantities, every nieht goiug to bed :•—Three to twelve years old, four to eight drops in half a teaspoonful of sugar ; above twelve years, eight to ten drops. It destroys the typhoid germ, and much suffering may be prevented by this simple and cheap remedy. If a child is seized with typhoid repeat the dose five or Bix times a day, and let no solids or meat in any form be given. I speak from certain knowledge, and hope this little information may provo of use to someone.' " The above extract has been in my possession for some considerable time, but I cannot say from what paper it was clipped, or when published.—l am, etc., J. A. Walkkr. Dunedin, August 13.

Magistrate (to woman charged with drunkenness): "You must pay a fine of five shillings.' Prisoner : " Sure, then, I've but two shillings in the world." Magistrate : " Very well; you must go to prison. 'lf you hadn't got drunk with your money you'd have had enough to have paid the fine."
