Highlt Improper. —A Dunedin telegram conveys the intelligence that two men up country have been fined 10s each for “ Yankee • grabbing. ” Serve the scoundrels right. They will respect the “Act,” perhaps, in future. Inters ational Exhibition, Christchurch. —Those that wish to be represented at the International Exhibition to be held*in Christchurch in April next, should inform us of their intentions. We have been connected with all the Exhibitions held in the colonies. At the late Adelaide Exhibition we represented sixty exhibitors, for which we received ten special gold medals, forty-nine first and one second i- ward, three of which were New Zealand firms (D. Strange and J. T. Martin, Invercargill, and T. Sevan, Wellington). Our plan is to represent the exhibitors, transact their busines, fix their exhibits on their sjiace, attend to the judging of exhibits on their space, and anything: necessary waile the exhibition remaimii open; at the close pack and send back exhibits or sell them, or duplicates thereof :if required, it is verjj inconvenient for exhibitors to come to t|he Exhibition to;fix their exhi bits, which amounts to a i expense, be aides thei loss of time which must necessarily be jjxprnded on them. Then, again, the exhillitoi s have a benefit, they have no trouble i f getting space. They let ns know hov much is required, and we set it for t fiem, as we have a large amount granted to us. We fix the exhibits on a better space than if they applied themselves. Our tenns are moderate. We specially caution the public against giving their exhibits to so-called Exhibitio n agents, who go the rounds of Exhibitions and run exhibitors into debt and other difficulties. On account of our not being able to give exhibitors the exact amount oif our fee, as it is impossible to do so until we know the size of exhibit, they may; rely on it being most reasonable. The exhibits should be addressed “Albert S. Manders and Co., Christchurch Exhibition.” If exhibitors will kindly send a note stating how much apace they require, no further trouble will be necessary.— Albert S. Manders and Go., British and Colonial Manufacturers, Agent.
