"Queen Eleanor's Vengeance'is a vividly told story. Coming to more modern times, 'The Deeds of Wellington,'

Inkerman,' and Balaklava' are excellently well said and song. As a book of ballads, interesting to all who have British blood in their veins, Dr. Bennett's contribution will be welcome. Dr. Bennett's Ballads will eave a strong impression on the memory of those who read them."

bile, liver and stomach complaints this inappreciable medicine is so well known in every part of the world, and the cures performed by its use are so wonderful, that it now stands pre-eminent above all other remedies, more particularly for the cure of bilious and liver complaints, disorders of the stomach, dropsy and debilitated constitution. In these diseases the beneficial effects of the Pills are so permanent that the whole system is renewed, the organs of digestion strengthened, and a free respiration promoted. They expel from the secretive organs and the circulation the morbid matier which produces inflammation, pain, lever, debility, and physical decay-thus annihilating, by their purifying properties, the virulence of the most painful and devastating diseases.
