A few da} 6 ago the cables informed m tbat the proprietors of (he London Daily Telegraph and of the St James' Gazette had received notice that if their papers , continued tbeir attacks upon tbe unetn- j ployed and the githerina:? at Tower Hill ; the men will foroibly regent them.

A vary peouliar aud successful surgi al operation was performed by Dr Kendall yesterday. A well known resident, somo 18 months ago, was working with silver pine timber and a log whioU ho waß carrying slipped, and a piece of it ran in'o the chest above the right breast. It was taken out at the time and the place healed over. Shortly afterwards ho felt considerable discomfort where tbe puncture had taken place and tried various remedies but without obtaining an; relief. On consulting Dr Kendall yesterday he was advised to undergo an operation which was accordingly performed and resulted in | the extraction of a silver pine Bplinter nearly j three inches lon/ and about an inch in | circumference. As a curiosity the doctor I will no doubt be glad to treasure thie ! specimen of New Zealand timber. As Bilver ! pine ia on» of the most enduring timbers in the world it is probable our friend would have kept it about his person f )r a thousand years or bo bad he chanced to live bo lon<. Seeing • the position in which the splinter was placed I tbe operation must have \)&en a very delicate one whilst the doctor is to be complimented on at once ibrming a true diagao is. i The distribution of prizes to the children ofthe Woodstock School will take place iv the Rimu Hall, tbis evening, at half-past aivea. We bate received a parrphlet published to bring before tha wor d the salient features of tbe Tyeon vegsta.bl<? euro for alcoholism. A plate i«alio given of the Tyson sanatorium, St. Kilda, Victoria. The work will doubtless be very valuable to our Good Tempim j friends. I Mr Phil May Bends his illustrat d Winter Annual f r 1892.

Hannan the i Qrey Ar^us say a : — Ho came out to Victoria in 1858, where ho resided until the rueh to | the West Coast set in, when he came down to Hokitika, where be went into business. Subsequently he started business in Stafford and Waimea, carrying on tbe business of hotelkeeper and storekeeper in each placo iv their palmiest days. On the breaking out of gumara ho removed his business to that place and has been identified with the town over eince, It was only very veoeutly ilial ha could be Baid to reside permanently in Greymouth. Jlr Hannaa followed the occupation of a mining advocate. He was the oldest registered niiuing advocate on tho West Coast, and decid.sdly oce of tbe very best aud most successful, having practised before the Wardens for the last 20 years. Indeod a great many of his old friends and acquaintances showed the r feeling of respect for decesteed by comiDg fi'jui Kumara, Stafford and Waimea tc tckc a friend's part at the last aacl offices for the dead. i Of tho foxbuutcr'a uttor iudifiei'euoe lo the ppril of lifo and limb when engaged in his favourite sport, the followiug is a good anecdote ;— B.iring a huut, au enthusiastic lider came suddenly upon a five:-areh bridge I uudor repair ; four of ths arohes were only ! partially finished while the place where tho ' centre one was to be was entirely left open* j and some fourteen feet below fclio river was running rapidly. To the horror of some ' men who were at work, the gentleman rodo 1 over tlie hurdles that guarded the approach to t':e bridge, then gave his mare tha head- > She felt oautiouUy for a sure looiiug amid tha broken maeonry, and, colleotinjr herself, jumped to tho top of the Brat arch, then on the second, paused a moment on the ' brink of the centre,, as if to measure tbe exact width, of the obasm, then rose coolly, | cleared it at a bound, clearing tha two remaining arches and the hurdles on tbe I ptber side in thoir turn as well.

PBOtfESSOR LTEBEG says : — "We shall never know how men were first direoted to the use of Coffee, but we may consider the article so remarkable for its action on the brain and the substance of the organs o i motion as an element of food for organs yet unknown which are destined to ooDvert the blood into nervous substances and thua r -emit the energy of the moving and thinking faoulties."' if you wish to benefit yoursoif you could not do better than drink Cbe\bk's A. 1, Coffeb.
