    "SACKETT'S SHOULDER BRACE AND CHEST EXPANDER, FOR MEN, WOMEN, AND CHILDREN.
    The advantage to be derived from wearing the Shoulder Brace are:-
    No one can be round-shouldered ; they make all erect, as nature intended all people to be.
    There is no depression of the chest, but it is expanded to the fullest extent.
    One misses that uncomfortable feeling which is experienced by all round-shouldered people.
    No weak backs: no spinal disease.
    They serve the purpose of the ordinary suspender as well as the Shoulder Brace.
    Thousands of ladies in all parts of America use them. A great many wear them without stays. The ones for ladies are made with belts attached, so that they may if they choose, attach all the skirts to them, and take the weight from the hips and place it on the shoulder. Anv member of the medical faculty will tell you how beneficial that will be to any lady.
    They are not uncomfortable; one experiences great comfort from the moment they commence to use them.
    They are sold wholesale and retail at 126, KING-STREET, where all orders may be left.
    The common verdict of the many that wear them already, "I would not be without them."

    "Father and Son
    Deaths on the Same Day
    London, Wednesday
    The Rev. Walter Sackett, superintendent minister of the Ealing Wesleyan Circuit, and his son, Dr. Herbert Leyland Sackett, both died within a few hours of each other in St. Bartholomew's Hospital, West Smith field, from acute blood-poisoning.
    Dr. Leyland Sackett, who was a chief assistant surgeon at the hospital and only 28 years of age, lived at Ealing with his father, who had been in very poor health for some time.
    One day last week the father complained of sore throat, and there were two sores on his forehead. Dr. Leyland Sackett hastily diagnosed the complaint as mumps. He then went to his work at the hospital, where other doctors noticed the first signs of disease on him, diagnosed it as erysipelas and blood poisoning, and put him straight to bed.
    In the meantime his father's illness quickly developed, and a doctor at Ealing diagnosed it also as erysipelas and acute blood poisoning. He was removed from Ealing to the hospital, and although placed in adjoining wards father and son did not see each other.
    The Rev. Walter Sackett, who was 59 years of age, was well known in Wesleyan circles. For some years he was a missionary in India, He was this year's president of the Ealing and Hanwell Free Church Council."
