The Ontario Legislature Assembled
To-Day.—The Speech from
the Throne.
! A deputation of citizens has
waited on Premier Mowat, of Ontario, to present a petition for exemption from taxation of buildings up
to the value of $600. The objeot is
to encourage workmen to own homes
for themselves. Mr. Mowat said
the matter would be brought up
next session.
. Quebec is greatly agitated oyer a
marriage question. . A ihort time
since two Roman Catholics, both of
*ge, were married by. a Protestant
clergyman, and it ia now contended
by the friends of the bride, who has
left her husband, that the marriage
was not legal, and an action to test
the question has been -entered in
the Supremo Oourt.
The British Board of Trade emigration returns for the past year just
completed show a remarkable steadiness, the total outgo being 280,000,
compared with 281,487 in 1887.
There is a marked decline in emigration to the States and Australia,
the former having decreased .,566
and the latter 2,961. Emigration
toOanada increased 3,000,
The American cruiser Vesuvius
made her third trial trip recently.
She was guaranteed to go twenty
knots an hour.   She  accomplished
i.947 knots with the wind and
tide, 20.346 against tbem, mean 21.-
646. It is claimed that these are
the fastest rates yet made by any
vessel. But in a list of war vessels
now being constructed for the British navy are twelve guaranteed to
exceed twenty-one knots.
Says an exchango: On December
12 lust, one of the 48 ton breechloader guns of tho French buttle ship
Admiral Duperre burst, while firing
at a target off Toulon. An officer
and five mon were killed. This gun
was one of the finest examples of
tke built-up system, of which many
disastrous failures are on record.
Those who brag so muoh about these
guns, and are so ready to denounce
cast guns, have considerable still
to learn.
The Halifax Critic, whioh may be
considered an authority on the question dealt with, says: We need not
expect to see Newfoundland become
a portion of the Dominion for many
a day. The merohants of St Johns
fear the competition of Halifax and
Montreal in the outports, and so
long as their influence remains as
powerful as it now is they will kill
out any movement towards confederation just as they did last
summer. At the same time wo
be. jve the majority of the people
of Newfoundland are at heart favorable to confederation.
* According to Mr. H, V. Knaggs
(Archives of Peaialrics), a few
threads of Berlin wool placed round
the neck and worn continuously are
an efficient preventive against those
incommoding complaints, which
many persons are so prone to catch
on exposure to cold. From ten to
twenty threads are enough for the
purpose. They should only bo
removed for making ablutions, and
should be left off gradually by discarding daily one thread at a time.
The remedy probably acts by keeping up a belt of skin action, thus
acting mildly and continuously as a.
slight connter-irritant.
An amusing incident occurred in
tho course of tho Governor-General's
reception at Ottawa on Now Year's
day. After Professor Wiggins had
been introduced to his excellency and
was passing the crown ministers
with a bow, Sir John nimbly stepped
forward, and offering his hand, said,
aloud: "Why, Wiggins, you go by
like a comet I" This created a suppressed laugh, in whioh hisexcellenoy
joined, but the professor was equal
to tho oocassion, for he said:
"Comets alwayi go swiftly by the
sun," Subsequently he remarked
that he was greatly obliged to tho
prime minister for catching him at
perihelion.    	
As a substitute for granite blocks,
steel paving, says the New York
Sun, is attracting considerable attention, its durability being said to be
quite a point in its favor, and its
cost being somewhat less. It consists of steel strips about 2J- inches
wide and 1 inch thiok, rolled with
a channel on the side exposed to
traffic, and with notches about 6
inches apart; these strips weigh 11
pounds to the yard, are laid across
the street a distance of about 6
inches between centres, and their
length is only sufficient to
extend to the middle of the street,
so that the proper slope from the
centre to the gutters oan be secured.
They are bolted together, so as to
insure them against lateral slipping,
and are fastened to wooden sills.
A firmly constructed bed ot gravel
composes the support of this pavement, while between the steel strips
a mixture of pitch and cement is
poured, filling the interstices to a
level with the tops of the strips,
and rendering tho surface comparatively smooth.

-LEV-IBD KOAD ACCIDENT.
Bbooxlyh, Jan. 24.—A serious accident occurred on tho Kings County
Elevated Railroad at Nostrand ave.
and Fulton it. this morning. A dense
fog prevailed md trains loaded  with
Esmngen going to buiineu were fol-
wing one another in Quick iimow*
■lon. At the point itated a train had
drawn up at tne-station when the one
following crashed into it telescoping
the rear oar. One nun named Annison
was killed during the confusion attending the accident. He lost his head
and jumped to the street sustaining
injuries from whioh he died shortly
after. No one was injured and the
can are not much damaged.
ACCIDENTS UALOItE.
New Yobk, Jan. 24.—The fog on
the river this morning was
extremely dangerous and several collisions occurred. The governor Island
ferry boat ran against an "Annex"
boat, and the Fulton ferry boat was
run into by a steamboat and herself
ran into a barge. In no cose was any
injury done although the passengers
were much frightened, and some of
the ferries ran no boats at all for some
hours. The accidents were due to the
heavy fog which prevailed throughout
this section thii morning and seriously
interrupted travel on elevated roads
and ferries. The most serious injury
to anyone happened to a young lady
who had two teeth knocked out. At
seven this morning the down train ou
the Fulton avenuo line, with four cars
all crowded with men and women, was
about to pull out of Nostrand avenue
itation when another train came down
upon it in the denso fog. It was moving slowly but the engineer could not
check it before it crashed into the rear
of the train. The shock produced a
wild panic among ihe pauenger. of the
forward train, and Samuel Knifien, a
printer, aged 65, threw open the gate
and jumped from the car to the street
below, a distance of thirty feet, striking on the back of his head and causing instant death. When the collision
occurred the passengers were pitched
forward into a heap, the men and wo*
men shouting and screaming in the
wild struggle. Numbers were bruised
and cut but none seriously. The en-
(*inel"f ullliy'iTCondtramsays the fog
was so dense he oould oot see the
other train until closo up on to it and
he had supposed it hsd already moved
out of the ststioo.
A TEU1UDLE ACCIDENT,

were content to lit around aud let

New Yobk, Jan. 24.—A pamphlet
has just been published here hy M.

SFBBC— FKO- THB TU110NE.
Tobonto, Jan. 24.-The Ontario
legislature met to-day. Following is
the lieut. -governor's speech from the
throne: Mr, Speaker and' gentlemen
of thu legislative assembly, 1 have
much pleasure in again welcoming you
to your annual duties ns representatives
of the province in parliament assembled. I congratulate you on the recent
decision of the judicial oomtniuion of
her majesty's privy council, continuing
tho right of the provinco to the crown
lands including timber and minerals
situate within the provincial boundaries us declared In 1884 by the decision
of their lordships aud the order of her
majesty in oouncil. The principal obstacles whioh havo hitherto retarded
the settlement and development uf our
northern territory have thus beon re*
moved. I have the pleasure of informing you thit there ii a fair prospect of
our northerly boundary, as well as our
westerly boundary, being satisfactorily
settled by imperial itatue at the next
session of parliament. I am glad to
know that the agricultural Industries
of the oountry hive been flirty prosperous during the past year; that
though the early part of the season wai
unfavorable and in some localities
crops and pastures were badly affected
by drought, yet that over the greater
portion of tho provinco cereals, roots
and f ruiti have been abundant and of
■upwior quality* The extensive areas
of land brought under cultivation during the last decade in India, South
America, the United Statei and our
own norlhwut make economy in production more essential to the farmen
of Ontario thin ever beforo, and em-
phuise the importance of giving increased attention to the best means of
promoting the agricultural interests of
the oountry. Increased efficiency hai
been given by the legislation of lut
session to the department nf agriculture throughout all its varied sorvlces,
and experience is already justifying
the policy of auigning to the department a ministsr free to devote to it hi.
wholo energise.   Acting npon a re
commendation of the house I appointed
a commission lut year to enquire into
the mineral resources of the province
and the best means for their develop*
ment.   Much valuable information has
been gathered by the commission and
I hive much reuon to believe that already its labon have resulted in drawing a large moisure of attention to our
mineral wealth,    I also deemed it
expedient to have the province represented at the Centennial exposition of
tho Ohio valley and central states,
held at Cincinnati lost summer,  and
having in view the special importance
of attracting foreign enterprise and
capital to our mining industry it was
determined to confine the exhibit to
minerals.   There is reuon to believo
that the object of the exhibit will be
to some extent realized in the near future.   It ii expected that the official
report! on both subjects will he completed and ready beforo the close of
the session, to be laid before you with
the growth of the province and the in*
creasing competition in every department of l_d_-ry.   The n*-*sslty for
increased skill in various fields of
labor is constsntly becoming  more
urgent. 'The school of practical science
owing to, its limited equipment and
staff hu 10 far met the demand inadequately although the school  has
been efficient within the field which it
hu occupied.   A measure will be submitted to you for enlarging the  staff,
increasing the usefulness of the school
in reference to mining matters and ex*
tending the carriculum so as to include
the study of applied mechanic!, applied
chemistry and of architecture according to the methods adopted by the best
schools of a similar kind in Oreat Britain andtho U.S.   An agreement of tho
oity of PToronto to permanently endow
two additional chairs in the provincial
univenity in settlement of certain
litigated questions between the city
and the university will be submitted
for your approval and legislative unction.   Amongst tbe other meuures to
be submitted for your Consideration
are a new voters' list embodying with
the    present  law  so   far    u    iti
application   the   provisions   needed
for carrying into full effect the legislation of hut session.   I regret also to
say that the questions between this
provinco and the province of Quebec are unsettled.   The intended arbitration provided in both provinces by
statute have not been proceeded with
in consequence of a difference u to
mat ten to be referred.   My government desired that sll unsettled matters
in dispute should be submitted, but
Quebeo wu not prepared prepared to
include the queition of the land improvement fund or any matters exoept
such u relate to the school lands.   I
hope that some satisfactory way of
removing the difficulties in tho way of
a complete settlement may soon be
found.' The public accounts of the
province, showing tbe receipts and
expenditure for the put year, will be
promptly laid before you.   I am glad
to say that the revenue has exceed.ed ,
the amount anticipated and that the
uggregate expenditure hu been kept
within the estimates.   The utimates
for thu expenditure of the current year
will at an early date be submitted for
your approval.   They will be found to
have been prepared with all the economy consistent with the efficiency of
public service.   I feel suro that your
legislative labon in disposing of all
matters which mar come beforo you
will manifest the ume care and wisdom
as heretofore.   I regret to say that the
accounts between the Dominion and
tho province are still unsettled.   Since
the last session of the legislature a conference in connection with the accounts took place between the finance
minister and the treasurers of Quebec
and Ontario.   Tha conference lasted
several days and considerable progreu
had been made when the work of the
conference wu interrupted by representatives of the Dominion government taking au entirely new and unexpected position with respect to the interest on the credit of the province,
the new contention involving a difference to thia province of a large sum.'
Representations have since been made
to tho Dominion government by the
treasuron of the two provinces which
I hope miy induce a reconsideration of
the matter and the acquiescence of the
Dominion government in the just demands of the provincei,

What next!   This is the age of
wonders, and the ladies are always
figuring in  some   new   role.   According to the Victoria papers,  the
ladies of Pandora street Methodist
church, Rev. Mr. Starr, pastor, presiding, and Mrs. Starr  taking ono
ot the leading parts, engaged   in a
spirited serio-comic debate on Tuesday evening last,   in  the  locturo
room of  the  church,   the  subject
being, "Wub St. Paul a bachelor or
a married man 1"   Among the Colonist's introductory remarks to tho
report of tho "performance" is  the
following.     "When   the   debated
question is as unique  ns   tho  ono
selected by the ladies  of  Pandora
street Methodist church, the contest
or wits cannot but cause an
monse amount of fun for all who
have the pleasure of listening,  and
who derive instruction from  the
arguments brought out, as   well as
amusement."      Tho    "fun"    and
"amusement" may  be  safely  conceded, but it would require  "double
million magnifying glasses" to  discern even a grain, of instruction in.
the arrant nonsense,   according  to.
the Colonist's report.that was talked
at the debate.   We don't lay olaim
to any super-sensitiveness, and perhaps our opinion on tbe subject  is
not worth a great deal,but it strikes
us that the ladies in question might
have been far better engaged  than
in secularizing and  bringing into
contempt not only the church, but
the Book which is its   charter  and
guide.   We cannot honestly see any
other   possible   result  from   such
"funny,"  "amusing," flippant—not
to  say    irreverent—discourse,  by
church people, in a church, as
church performance, on such a subject.     ___________
As illustrative of the benefits of
advertising (we refer more particularly here to advertising a district
or a town than a business, although
the prinoiple is the same in both,)
we wonld quote the following from
an American exchange : "Between
live and seven years ago Southern
California lay dormant. Its present cities wero then mere villages.
PThe inhabitant, of those cities wore
content to do a small business and
to permit time to glide into eternity
with as little ado as possible. But
it was ordered that tho semi-somnolent condition which.ckeriictcrized
those oities should no longer prevail. There was an awakening, and
with the awakening there camo to
the citizens of those cities the know-
lodge that the future had great
things in store for them, provided
they would but take advantage of
the opportunities which wore beginning to present themselves. They
did so. Southern California soon
became known in almost every civilized portion of the globe. It was
advertised here, there, and everywhere. No fqrm. of advertisement of
thoir country and its resources was
too insignificant or too gigantic to
escape trial if it promised fruits.
The result of such enterprise was an
immigration for which the history
otthe Pacific Coast affords no par-
allel." Westminster knows what it
is to have lain dormant for somo
yeara also. But tlie renaissance has
plainly begun. Although we do
not want any "unparalleled immigration" to this oity, nor anything
in the shape of a Yankee "boom,"
atill a moderate application of
American methods would do no
harm, but, on the contrary, be productive of considerable good, ln
the clause, "No form of advertisement of their country and its resources was foo insignificant or loo
gigantic to escape trial if it
promised fruits," there lios a secret
which we would do well to note and
aot upon, Westminster possesses
unique and splendid facilities for
benefitting hy judicious schemes of
advertising. It is true that we
could not advertise onr city indefinitely, at present, without going
beyond the strict truth—_ thing
that should never bo done in advertising of any sort—but this oity is
situated in the centre of an unparalleled agricultural district, the
valley of the lower Fraser, and it is
the centre'besides of the salmon
fishing industry of the province and
also of what will be in the near
future an immonse lumbering industry. Taken in connection with
onr natural and proper aetting,
Westminster district, our resources
will bear expatiating upon, and if
properly represented abroad could
not fail'to bring us capital and population both for ths city and district;
and this should be. emphasized right
here, that onr real, solid progress.

•jraqMrit**. Our policy am
toward the different sections of the
dirtrict, or the district as a whole,
have not been marked by anything
particularly commendable in tho
past, to put it mildly. Wo havo,
rather, acted in a stupidly selfish—
suioidal—manner where what we
considered distinctively district interests were concerned, forgetting
our mutual relations. We hope to
see all this changed. In faet it
must be changed, unless we are
willing to see rivals take from under
our very nose that whioh we might
have retained by the exercise of
common forethought and business
shrewdness. We should, as far as
possible, make the interests of every
part of the district our own, and assist, if we can, substantially or
morally, in all their schemes for advancement. Above all, let us make
it a point to seo that every section
of the district has all the road connection and mail facilities with this
city that it requires and is entitled
to. There is one case in point just
now, particularly—that of the Nortii
Arm settlement. In this case both
a wagon road and mail facilities are
wanted, and have been wanted for
aome timo. Wo have roforred to
this on several occasions, and shall
not cease to keep it before our citizens nnd the proper authorities. It
is understood the new connoil will
tako some action with respect to
the road, and we trust the matter
may receive the attention that its
importance demands. Vancouver
has put in its olaim for the trade of
the North Arm settlement, and has
not been slow to back up the claim
in the most practical manner.
Shortly the rich islands of the delta
will be still moro closely connected
with Vancouver by two costly
bridges, for which tenders are already invited, as will have been
seen by our advertising columns
yesterday for the first time. But
by a good wagon road connection
with tho North Arm we shall share
tho advantages of the projected
bridging in that locality, as this
city will thus be brought into more
convenient communication with the
North Arm settlement than was before possible. Our steamboat and
mail facilites with this settlement
should also be immediately looked
after. Similar remarks might bo
made respecting our relations with
other sections of the.district, which
the city, in its own interests, should
take tho initiative in having improved. For tho benefit of every
part of the distriot at once, as well
as the city, we believe that some
advertising scheme devised, prose
cuted, and controlled by the eity, in
conjunction with the various municipalities to some extent, would be
productive of the most satisfactory
results. The scheme would need to
be on n somewhat larger scale,
though, nnd conducted in a somewhat different manner, than was the
caso with the late lamented folder,
of whioh.by the way—what 1 It is
worse than useless to undertake and
attempt to carry through anything
of tbe sort in the "cheap and nasty"
style; for the inevitable result of
such a course is to reflect discredit
where honorable fame is the object
sought. The coming provincial exhibition, as we have before hinted,
may, if properly managed, be turned
to account as a most effectual means
of advertising, not only this city
and distriot in the first plaoe, but
tho entire province. Let us see that
we do not lose the opportunity.

Calif ornia-This name at Wit applied, be-
tweon 1536 and 1539, to a portion of Lower
California, was derived from ah old printed
romance, the ono which Mr. Edward Ever*
ett Hale rediscovered in 1803, aud from
which he drew this now accepted conclusion. For In this romauce the name " California " was already boforo 1690 applied to
a fabulous island, described as uear tbo
Indies, and also " very near the terrestrial
paradise." Colonists whom Cortes brought
to tho newly-discovered peninsula in 1535,

been tbe first to apply the name to the supposed island on wbieb they bad beon for a

The Cow-Boy Evangelist.
Mr. Geo. W. Raaure, the cow-boy

years. Tho meeting promises to be
most interesting and should be largely
attended.
Prer. Heine.
The grand concert last night in the
Oddfelows' Ha'.! was far superior to
anything of the kind ever before heard
in Westminster, The hall was packed
with a most appreciative audience.
Never has such music beon drawn
from a violin in Westminster as did
Mr. Heine last night—the instrument
, did everything but speak. The performances of Mrs. and Mia. Heine
were of a high standard and gave the
utmost satisfaction. A high class per-
formaneo such as givon last night will
always be liberally supported at the

Antra.He Mine*.
A. Pugh, manager uf the anthracite
coal mines, Banff, Alberta, Btates that
at preient coal is being taken out at
the rate uf 100 tons a day; but tho
mining gang will be increased to''such
an extent that the output will be 500
tons a day. He says oven this will
likely be increased, aa the company
have already sale for all they can turn
out It is being shipped to tho Pacifio coast, where the demand iB good.
Instead of tbe company shipping the
coal, they juat mine the coal and lay
it down at the track for $5 a ton. The
purchaser does the shipping and attends to the rates.—Winnipeg Com-

This morning the Hon. John Rob*
son, provincial secretary, accompanied
by ex-Mayor Dickinson, Mr. Jas. Cun*
ningbam and Mr. G, Grant, visited
the provincial asylum and thoroughly
inspected tho building, its accommodations and conveniences. Tho result
of this visit will be that a $25,000 addition will bo made to the asylum dur-
in the coming summer, and plans for
the samo aro to be prepared immediately, 'iho hon, gentleman was
forcibly impressed with the inadequate
character of the preient building and
the necessity of larger quarters and
more suitable accommodation for the
inmates of this crowded institution.

Our attention has boon directed to
the want that ia felt by tho settlers in
tho vicinity of Brownavillo hnd along
tho Scott and'Yale roads for'occasional
church sorvices at some convenient
and central point ou tho other aide of
the river. Wo nro informed tlmt quite
a number of now settlers aro going in
on the Scott and Yale roads, within
six or eight miles of this city, comprising some families, and numbering at
least 30 individuals. The. nearest
church that these people could conveniently attend ie at Mud Bay, 10 or
12 miles distant from tho centre of
the settlement. Mr. J. W, Stein, at
tho foot of the Yale road, near Brownsville, offers half an acre of available
ground as n Bite, if either the Presbyterian, Methodfst or Baptist denominations will undertako to put up a
small mission ohurch and give at least
one service a month, in tho ovoning
preferred. It is to be hoped that
some of our oity churches may see
their way clear to respond to thia
''Macedonian cry" and give the aid
required, as the settle-net in question
undoubtedly has noeds in the direction
mentioned, and growing steadily at it
is, must soon demand and support n
thriving mission.

The Delta municipality, in Westminster district, ia at present reported
to be in somewhat of a muddle. The
question of qualification waa not
seriously considered, and it has now
been found that three of the members
of last year's board were not duly
qualified according to the Letters
Patent It is alio stated that at present in aeveral of the wards there is
not one man duly qualified for the of*
fice of reeve or councillor, and therefore the Letters Patent have been
surrendered to the government, ao as
to allow of their being altered and
amended. It (spot known whether

The Ice famine.
The weather is so extremely mild
that it is feared there will be no ice on
the lower Fraser this winter, and, consequently, fish oxporters, hotels, etc.,
are becoming anxious for their supply.
A prominent fresh fish exporter had
completed arrangements to get his supply of ice from Kamloops, but the intention was abandoned when it was
learned the Canadian Pacific Railway
demanded $58.80 per car of 12 tons to
transport the ice to this city. The
shipment of fresh salmon and other
fish to the east will be very light during the coming summer unless we are
aoon favored with a severe cold spell.
If the railroad company would convey
the ice from the interior at $25 per oar
several hundred carloads would be contracted for by consumers in Westminster and Vancouver.
Coal cunt innes to sell, retail- at $10
per ton at Victoria, B. C. though the
city ia only 100 milea from tho minus,.
The cost is mado up as follows: Price
at mines, $6 per ton; freight charges,
$1.50 per ton; cost of delivering and
retailers'profits, $2.50 per ton. This
is certainly an outrageous price for
the coal, Gait mine coal, which if
anything ii auperior in quality to tha
coal used at Viotoria, retails in Winnipeg, delivered at the houses of purchasers, at |8 per ton. Thii coal is
earned by rail a distance ol nearly
800 miles, over two different, railways,
and is subject to a pretty skiff freight
rate. The Viotoria people should take
a lesson from Winnipeg in the art of
"kicking," and they wonld not long
submit to such injustice. The cost of
coal delivered in Viotoria ihould oot
exceed the prise-now charged at the
mines. The costs all around at present are outrageously high.—Winnipeg

allowing the transhipment of the cargo
of fish of the Gloucester schooner Bor

absurd that a collector should bo dismissed for this, and it is said it wai
rather the faet that he was a liberal

CORRESPONDENCE.
A Few Ceneetloas. , ■
Editor Colum dian.—Dear sir. There
aro somo typographical errors in my let*
ter of the 21st, two in particular which I
would have corrected.
In rcfering to the coming agricultural
exhibition, lam made to say; "There
will be no excuse for the abience of
electors;" it should have boon "exhibitors" instead of "electors."
In enumer-tfng the various parties
that should make preparation, "farmen"
is substitut'i. for "tanners." Tanners
and curriers, that. Ib, manufacturers of
leather are the people whom we want to
make speoial preparation, as this requires time.
Farmers will undoubtedly do their duty
as they have ever done in previous exhibitions.
Sorry to bother you again.
Thomas Cunningham.
Election Promises.
Editor Columbian.—Now that the
fight is over and the glorious victory
duly recorded, it con be no harm to look
baok a littlo and see what we were contending about.
I voted for the Branch; I voted for
the Southern; I signed the bondt there*
fore, I may be believed when I say I am
a railway man, especially as I have an
idea that the railway will put some
money in my pooket.
But the point I wish to press upon the
people is this—there are other things
than railways—there are, perhaps, more
important things.
You made it (I am talking to the people) quite plain, tbat no candidate had a
chance who was not "solid" on the railway; but you did not seem to care a snap
of your fingers whether they wero Bolid
on water and sewerage, and some other
things, or not.
Now the railway will be a practical,
material benefit to about five per cent, of
ub; water and -sewerage will be a practical, material benefit to ninety-fi**e per
cent.
I am aware that a good many of you
don't drink water; but unless the doctors
are all out of their reckoning, those are
just the ones who oan least afford to live
under unhealthy conditions.
Now, how have you treated these two
questions ?
"Gentlemen, lam In favor of tho railway, but—"
"To the lamp post with hlm and his
■buta'—tar and feather him—burn him
in effigy—ride him on a rail—we'll haye
no 'buta'!
"Gentlemen, I am In favor of a system
of water-supply and sewerage, but—"
"Ah! Sensible fellow that! No rashness about him! Slow and steady does itt'*
Yet to very few outside the large
property holders, does it make much
practical difference whether the Southern
Bailway Is built In '89 or '99; while a
good water system {whioh, of course is a
prerequisite of a sewerage system) is im*
portent for comfort, ia urgently needed
for firo protection and tbe reduction of
insurance rates, and is absolutely essential to the health of the community.
How long are we going to dilly-dally
over this matter ? Citizen.
C. C. Jacobs, Buffalo, N. Y., says:
"Dr. Thomas' Eclectric OU ourod him of
a bad caso of piles of 8 years' standing,
having tried almost every known remedy,
besides two Buffalo Physicians, without
relief; but the Oil cured him; he thinks
It cannot bo recommended too highly."
There being imitations on the market of
Dr, Thomas'Eoleotrio Oil, customers will
aee that they get the genuine.
