The promoters of this Prospectus, in introducing it to the public, wish to draw attention to the benefit to be derived from the establishment in . the County of Ashburton of Cheese and Butter Factories. (1) By the factory system the cost of manufacturing would be considerably lessened, and the consequent profit arising therefrom give a greater return to all interested, and by reason of the uniformity obtainable, a greater demand also for the manufactured article, at an irlcreased value, would be the result. (2) Farmers, by selling their milk to the Company, will receive payment in cash, and consequently be in a position to purchase their goods at the store on a cash basis, which will not only be advantageous to themselves, but will also materially assist to place trade generally throughout the County on a sounder, footing, and will likewise find an outlet for the butter and cheese made, which at present farmers and storekeepers have a great difficulty in doing, (3) It would be the means of opening up a steady paying market for the produce which at present —during some portion of the year—will barely meet working expenses, and ships now being fitted with refrigerating apparatus, combined with the prospect of direct steam communication at an early date with the Old Country, warrants the promoters in anticipating and offering such an outlet. All further information desired can be obtained from the Secretary or any of the Directors. Application forms for shares will be issued in a few days. S. E. POYNTZ, 958 c Interim Secretary.

Although this office has been in exis tence for a period of more than seven years, it is believed that the objects for which it was established are not sufficiently understood. It is desired to set forth in a concise form information respecting the business which this office undertakes : 1. The charge of all kinds of money trusts, such as Marriage Settlements, moneys to be invested for the benefit of Minors, moneys bequeathed for charitable objects, moneys the title to which is in dispute, or whose legal owner is unknown or cannot be found, Ac., &c. 2. The administration of the wills o persons who by appointing the Public Trustee as their executor secure the guarantee of the State for the due fulfilment of their wishes, and to avoid the risk consequent on the appointment f private persons as executors, who not unfrequently, though earnestly desirous of acting for the benefit of parties interested, fail to carry out legally the objects for which they were appointed, and consequently involve themselves and those whose interests they are striving to protect in costly and harassing litigation. 3. The administration of all estates of which no disposition has been made by will, whenever relatives do not wish to incur the responsibility of administration, or cannot from any cause obtain the necessary powers to act. In such cases it is the duly of the Public Trustee to discharge all legal debts so far as the assets extend, and divide the residue amongst the next of kin. 4. The administration of the estates of lunatics, lunatic patients, and convicts. 5. The charge of all lands lying waste and unoccupied of which the owner is unknown, or who has been absent from the colony for ten years, - having loft nc known agent. The cost of administering estates is very small. Information may be obtained from all agents. R. C. HAMERTON, 29a Public Trustee
