cashes more money ordiers than the
post-offices of the other .three cUloa

profits amounted to almost' twelve
per cent, of the giroaei Gales.
We write, this for the consideration
of country merchants who are oppos

to meet the competition of that
business with success, the country
merchant must look beyond any such
feeble protection as high express
rates may now afford. The figures
we have quoted suggest, how feeble
that protection! Is.

out foundation and .was only made
possible of belief by the 'fact that
only a certain' percent of people
bitten, will develop the disease. Hence
when this stone was applied to cer
tain, people's wounds that would not
have developed the disease) had) they
not been treated' at all, lit received
a false reputation. As am Immedi
ate .precaution all wounds Inflicted
should be allowed to bleed freely,
they then should be cauterised with
a strong acid or a .hot, Iron. By the
