As soon as a cough or cold makes its appearance, a dose of Tudor's Balsam is tt once administered, and this treatment is followed up until the cold dis- appears. Before using the Balsam in our family the children have been prostrate with colds for several weeks, but now, by taking doses as directed, they seem to suffer very little inconvenience. During the short time the cold is upon them, the action of the Balsam is marvellous, and the little ones take it readily and ask for more.—WALTER J.

| PEMBROKESHIRE POLITICS. BY the appointment of Mr Rees Davies M.P., to the office of Attorney-General for the Bahamas, a contest is rendered inevitable in Pembrokeshire. The election will probably be fought all the more bitterly by reason of the fact that it has been expected for some time and that during the last twelve months both political parties in the county have been clearing the decks for action." We shall, of course, be told as usual by the Conservative writers and speakers that the contest is one of the first importance; and that the electors of the most western county of South Wales are burning with a fervent desire to mark their detestation of the principles of the Radical Party. When the contest is' over and Mr Wynford Phillips is M.P. for Pembrokeshire —as there seems every prospect that he will be -we shall be quite as confidently and gravely informed that such was the result expected all along, and that the election is altogether devoid of any political importance. The prospect of a Conservative candidate in this particular constituency is anything but inviting. Mr Rees Davies was returned in 1892 by a majority running well into four figures. In 1895 when the Liberal Party in Wales was at low-water mark and when Mr Rees Davies was labouring under personal disadvantages whicK to a great extent discounted his political influence, the Radicals held the seat by the substantial majority of 580. Since that time the Denbigh election has shown the Government the utter disgust with which the Liberals of Wales regard the shady tactics used on behalf of reaction. As the Liberal Party is now waxing instead of waning, as the Principality is not again likely to be flooded with the Duke of Westminister's electioneering fund, and astheelecorate realisesbyexperience that Tory Government really means governing the country for the benefit of the
