Curious Marriage Tangle.
An extraordinary marriage complication was' explained in the Linooln
(Eng.) Police Court recently, when a
girl named Rix applied for an order
against a Mansfield pitman named
Herbert Hall.
The parties had been married* at
Lincoln registry office, but after living together and having one child the
man discovered that he had married
his own niece by half-blood relationship, which was illegal. John Richardson, chairman of the bench and a
well-known Socialist, asked if it were
not possible to persuade the people to
live together. The legal, barrier, he
said, was a very silly piece of canonical law, which ought'to,be entiie-
ly disregarded.
" Eventually the magistrates made an
order against the man to pay 60 cents
a' week-to his "wife" in respect of
the child.

acquired tlie craving for opium or

If is a Tonic you want! Physicing lowers
the system and makes it more susceptible
to disease. The winter months have been
agreat strain upon your vitality and unless you put the blood in good
condition all manner of evils will overtake you. PSYCHINE is the
Greatest of Tonics and should be taken byevery one at this season
of the year. PSYCHINE assists the gastric juices and ferments in
their digestion of the food, cleanses the mucous membrane of the
Stomach, and has an invigorating and beneficial effect on the muscles
and nerves. For Catarrh of the Stomach, Ulceration or Weak Stom-
.ach, Dyspepsia, the use of PSYCHINE is strongly advisable. •
PSYCHINE acting on the Stomach restores it to a healthy condition,
then acts through the stomach upon all the vital organs, creates an appetite, bringing
renewed vitality and strength to the entire system and enables it to throw off discs*
of every kind. It is the greatest health-
giver known to medical science, ga y.___.-_TO5ii6»fi_d-5i-*K»i

"' Creston is talking of changing
the date of its annual celebration
from'July l's>fc to May 21th, ori' the
grounds that "Dominion Day is
in the height of tho strawberry
season, and it is thought that
Ictoria Day would' be more
suitable." Don.t do it, neighbor.
Hold your celebration while your
strawberries are ripe; you could
