Tho old school practitioners bavo tried

"Now. tho only rational explanation
of consumption is t"ut it results ironi ue

of a fermentation that necessarily pre

to do is to remove that formentation, and
put the. stomach into a condition to ro

This is effected by taking wator into the
stomach, as hot as it can be homo, an
hour beforo each meal. This leaves the
stomach clean and puro, like a boiler

into tho stomach food that is in thohigh

A bill to abolish action for breach of
promise of marriage has been issuod
among the parliamentary papers to-day,
February 20 "backed by Mr. Claino,
Mr. Bryce and Mr. Buchanan (Liberals)
Col. Makins. (Conservative) and Mr.
Ileldon (Homo liulnr). It consists sim
ply of ihe following clause. "From and
after the passage of this net no person
shall bo entitled to maintain an notion in
spect of tho breach of promise to mar
ry, provided always that this shall not
apply to any action commenced before
tho passing of this net." The bill intro
duced will, if it pusses into law, bo tho
shortest statute on our statute book.
It contains only ono olauso, which pro
vides that, without prejudieo to existing
actions, after tho 1st of January next
thero shall bo no action for breach of
promise to marry. It must not, howover,
bo forgotten that this would still leave a
remedy for injury under tho ordinary
iws of contract that is, damages will
bo recoverablo for any actual momentary
oss sustained or incurred by tho plum-
ill through tho promise given by tho de
fendant. Tbe object of tho bill is to
abolish the principle of allowing dam
ages to be awarded for disappointment
