Mr G. G. Stead, when interviewed in Sydney, said that his experience of the manu. facturing cities in Great Britain has convinced him that trade is at present exceptionally active. The manufacturers, almost without exception, are so busy that they are frequently unwilling to execute orders. Mr Stead gave a manufacturer an order for a large piece of machinery, stipulating at the time that the work should be completed in time to catch a vessel sailing within," a few weeks. The manufacturer said that he would take the order, but would not guarantee the time—"ln other words," said Mr Stead, " that he should get the profits and I should take the risk. Fortunately I found another manufacturer who was more pliable, but you can gather from that that the merchants at Home have their hands pretty full."

Mr E. Schott, 157 Franklin street, West Melbourne, Victoria, writes on January 19, 1896:—I was almost at death's door a few mouths ago through an attack of influenzi, superseding a severe sickness from inflammat ion of the bowels. My strength and appetite were-gone, and it was impossible for me to resume work. My lungs were in a bad state, and at night I could scarcely breathe. I hid followed medical prescriptions, which only emptied my pockets, and as a last resource was about to undergo an operation, when I came upon one of your Clements' Tonic pamphlets. I took three bottles of this valuable remedy, and then found myself as sound as a bell; now I arii in the best of health. I write to cff=r my testimony, which I trust you will use for the benefit of fellow-sufferers of my description. —Yours very truly, E. Schott, 157 Franklin street, West Melbourne, Victoria.—[Advt]
