JOHNSTON'S

       CORN FLOUR

            IS THE BEST.
   Is decidedly superior.-Lancet.
   The emphatic and voluntarily declared opinion of the
Laicet (Nov. 13th, 1875) is, that Johnston's Corn Flour is
 Quite free from adulteration  and Decidedly superior.
The same Article on Johnston's Corn Flour states that
Corn Flour  itself has become a necessity.

THE VERY BUTTON.-SHAKESPEARE.


                ASK   FOR

GREEN & CADBURY'S
    PATENT LINEN BUTTONS.
        Beware of Spurious Imitations.
4W The name GREEN AND CADBIRY        is on
                every card.
     From  Boat Race Number of Judy, 1876.
   Judy knows a lot of fellows who are a 'button short,'
and are sorry to say some of them are her acquaintances.
She hears, however, on the best authority, that GREEN
AND CADBURY make one million and a half of buttons
every week, and seriously advised Sloper to apply at the
nearest draper's for their 'VERY BUTTON.' Sloper did so,
and had it sewn on in the shop.

pIRLINGHAM        BRANCH    OF  THE   NA-'
) TIONAL SOCIETY FOR WOMEN'S
SUFFRAGE.
  The Committee of the National Society invite
the attendance of delegates from all parts of the
United Kingdom  at a Conference to be held at
Birmingham, on Tuesday, April 17th, 1877.
  The Bill to remove the electoral disabilities of
women  was introduced on February 9th by Mr.
Jacob Bright, Sir Robert Anstruther, the Right
Hon. Russell Gurney, and the Right Hon. James
Stansfeld, and the second reading fixed for the 6th
of June. The Bill would give the right of voting
for members of Parliament to women wh6, as
owners or occupiers of property, already possess
the right of voting in municipal, School Board,
and other local elections. As this is the only pro-
posal for Parliamentary reform which comes before
the House of Commons this session in the prac-
tical form of a Bill, it is earnestly hoped that
those interested in the extension of the suffrage to
all householders will attend the Conference, and
otherwise endeavour to promote the success of the
measure.
  As the Birmingham  Committee will provide
accommodation for delegates, those who desire to
attend are requested to address a reply, before 9th
April, to
    Miss ELIZA M. STURGE,   Hon. See.,
           4, Broad-street Corner, Birmingham.
  The Conference will be held in the Theatre of
the Midland  Institute, at 11 30 a.m., when
HENRY HAWKES, Esq., J.P., President of
the Birmingham Women's  Suffrage Society, will
preside, and papers will be read.
  Chair will be taken at the Public Meeting, in
the Town Hall, at 7 30, by GEORGE BAKER,
Esq., Mayor of Birmingham.
