Mr C. B. Major, M.H.R., ia detained in Auckland on business, and will not arrive in Hawera until Monday. The damage done to roads in Hawera County through the late heavy rains is very considerable, and the outlay to put them into proper order again will run into several hundreds of pounds. On the Rawhitiroa, the slips wete heavy and numerous, but communication with the Mangamingi Valley will be restored more quickly than was at first anticipated. Mr Twigg, the County Foreman, with commendable promptitude, put on about thirty men to clear away the slips and effect repairs, and the road will be open again almost immediately. The cost will be something like £300. The damage to the approach to the Rukumoana bridge over the Patea river is not nearly >o great as was at first thought, and the expenditure on repairs may sot run into more than £20. The roads in other parts of the district suffered to greater or lesser extent, but, with the exception of the Tangahoe Valley road, on which extra expenditure, running into three figures, will be necessary, nothing of a serious nattfre will be required. The slips along the banks of many of the rivers have been numerous, acres having been lost > for grazing purposes.

The most shattered constitution may derive benefit from Holloway's Pills, which will regulate disordered action, brace the nerves, increase the energy of the intellectual faculties, and revive the falling memory. By attentively studying the instructions for taking these Pills, and obediently putting them in practice, the most despondent will soon feel confident of a perfect recovery.— Advfc.
IMPOVERISHED BLOOD CAUSES BALDNESS.
Nature is very careful to guard and protect and supply the vital organs with the proper amount of nutriment ; but when she cannot command a sufficient quantity of blood supply for all the organs, she very rightly cnts off the supply of parts the least vital, such as the hair and nails, so that the more important organs, as the heart, lungs etc., may be better nourished. Impoverished blood is the direct result of indigestion or dyspepsia. Impey's May Apple purifies the blood and enrahes it. The biliary and urinary poisons whioh impoverish the blood are eliminated by this marvellous herbal medicine. Impey's May Apple is sold by all chemists and storekeepers at 2s 6d per bottle, or will be sent direct at this price, post free, by the wholesale agents, Sharland and Co., Limited.
