A.l4agnosis reveals a reason and the h "t of that reason emphasises the 1 n r-failing. merit of the Golden RUITtle. ~e people of the state not only reggnized transportation as the mnaif alitery that keeps industrial and &grl-i c itural life throbbing, but they have w.sly appreciated that a healthy, I ting prosperity through this source I dº ends altogether upon proper co-; of eration with, and a right attitude I toward the railways which are doing so, much to develop their common wealth.

'allstones a:n* liver trouble by attending physicianas The victim took medicine by the 'quart and was enable to improve and fistally tried a course of treatment unider an osteopath, yith the result that the latter soon brought the lizard to the light of day. The animal was about four inches long and was alive at the time. How Boyle got the lizard in, his stomach is a sijystery, but Dr' Gray ventured the opinion that lBoyld drank polluted water and that the egg of a lizard was in this water, the egg later hatching and growing in the ran's stomach and causing the trouble. Boyle iwas unable to eat a hearty mal andi suffered constant discom fort. As soon as he rid himself of the animal his condition improved and he could stand any diet. Cases such as this are reported to be rare in medical science and that Boyle did not suffer even greater pain and dis comfort is a surprise. It is believed 'that the lizard made his home with 'Boyle for five years, Ihe duration of 'the trouble. The little animal had been preserved '.lI".
