Californian Honey. —The product of honey in California has grown from a single hive of bees, imported into that country thirty years ago, to 35,000,000 pounds a year. The Wellington Fire Brigades.— Recently, it will be remembered, the Wellington Volunteer Fire Brigades were disbanded, and in their stead the City Council organised a new body of paid men. There is, however, likely to be some disagreement over the division of the old Brigades’ funds. They possessed Sick and Accident Funds, to which the members themselves subscribed, and they claim that the money—some LiOO—should be divided amongst them. The City Council and the Insurance Societies contend that, for the maintenance of these, funds, 10 per cent of the subsidies paid to the Brigades were devoted, and therefore the Brigades have no right to claim the money as their personal property, or at least any more than the portion they contributed by their own subscriptions.
