LOCAL AND GENERAL.

♦ ■ - To-day is the seventy 'fourth anniversary of the battle of Waterloo. A meeting of those interested ia coursing was held last evening" at Timaru, but as only three persons attended, it is not likely a ofub will be (ornxed there this season. Petitions are now awaiting signatures at different places m the Temuka jKoad Poard Die t ** ct P r *J' D rT the Poard to Btrike a rate oi l-16th ot «? oeon y iß lb ? *» n order to provide funds fsr ooT 408 Witb th e ßmall birda . whioh it isolaimed areT^MWy WUUOUi Some time ago a new process of pi'*" er ving eggs was described by Mr Beck, Belgian Consul at Cbristchurgh. Some that had been aubjeoied to the prooess and kept for three months where opened on Saturday and were deolared to be good — for electioneering purposee. Lodges Celtio and Peninsula Kilwinning (Dunedin), 5.0., and lonio (Leeßton), E.G., have deolared against the movement for establishing a Grand Lodge. The Advanoe Lodge (Brunnerton), E. 0., Foxton Kilwinning, 8.0. , and Montrose, S.C., have joined the Grand Lodge movement. An adjourned meeting of the South Bakaia Licensing Committee was held m tbe Town Hall on Monday; Present— Messrs Lyttelton (ohairman), Holmes, Allan, and Oxley. An apology was reoeived for the unavoidable absenoe of Mr Coster. The police* reported most favourably on the three houses m tbe distriot, stating that there had been %o complaints and the oonduot of the hotels was good. Renewals were granted to A. J. Howell and J. Mitchell for the two Bakaia hotels, and to E. Mitchell for the Chertsey hotel. A meeting of representatives of the looal Lodgen of Freemasons was held at the Somerset Hotel last evening. It was deoided to hold a Masonio Ball under the auspices of the Lodges on Wednesday, Jnly 3rd, at the Masonio Hall, and a Committee, consisting of Messrs Crisp, Sparrow, B. Friedlander, H, Zander, and Bissit, was appointed to make the necessary arrangements, and to take oharge of the sale of tiokels. From the enthusiastic manner m which the project was entered into, and the style m whioh it was deoided to carry out the ball, there is no doubt ii will be oven moro successful than any of those which have preceded it.

A special meeting of the South Bakaia Johool Committee was held yesterday evenng, all the members being present. The neeting was called to consider the question > )f a new mistress. Miss Young wrote resign* , ing her position as mistress owiDg to private irrangements. On the motion of Mr Otlej jeoonded by Mr Shannon her resignation waa looepted with regret. Mr Oxley moved that tbe Board be requested to appoint Misa Bilton , mißtreßß, and Miss E. Bruoe infant mistress. ' Darried unanimously. It ia generally re- ! gretted that Miss Young is severing her ; aonneotion with the sohool, with whioh she baa been oonneoted for some years. The career of Mark Twain, the Atnerioan humorist, reads like a romance. He has been m his time oompoßitor, pilot, down, golddigger, reporter, and private secretary Even now, rich and famous as he is, be deolarea that the happiest days of his life were when be was pilot on board a Misßißsipi boat, Mark Twain 19 humorous only on paper. In his taciturnity he is a Yankee of Yankees, and will sit for hours m silont contemplation with a cigar between his teeth. His humor is only an elaborate effort after all. He toils like a slave endeavoring to be droll, and it is only after a fourth or fifth revise of his proofs that the pure gold of his fun beoomes apparent. While on commercial oabjeota (aaya a Sydney correspondent) I may mention a caßa whioh does not reflect much credit on the tona fides of American shippers. The Customs authorities levied duty as "ham" upon a shipment of what purported to be « Amour's prime sugar-oured ham," m 21b square tins. The consignees demurred and appealed. They urged that ham paste and devilled ham were admitted duty free, but this plea being deoided against them, they then turned round and averred that the sooalled sugar-oured ham was not ham at all, but boiled beef, mysteriously manipulated to impoße on the simple I Wooden nutmegs under another guise. Mr C. B. Stone, a member of the Auckland Harbour Board, who has just returned from a tour of the Australian colonies, said, on being interviewed by a reporter on various matters : — " I was sorry to see the disgraceful way m whioh most of our farming produoe was being Bent to the Australian market.. While Australians admit that New Zealand ia the garden of Australasia, and while they can take all we produoe, they are fast beooming disgusted with the Bhameful way m whioh we send our produoe aoross to them. It's the old cry wi.h us, 'Oh, it's good enough,' forgetting tbe adage that ' what will pay to do, will pay to do well.' " We hops that our farmers will take tbe hint. The ordinary (monthly meeting of the Wakanui Eiver Board was held on Saturday, June 8, Present — Messrs Olephane, (chairman), J. Brown, D. Johnston, J. Wilson, andE. Thomas. The report of the Works Committee was read and after disoussion adopted, it was resolved to give Mr D. Coohrane notioe m aooordanoe with seotidn 78 of " The River Boards Act 1881 " that tbe Board would enter upon his land and erect suoh protective works to prevent the overflow of tbe river as the Board may think tit, It was resolved to notify defaulters that unless balance of rateß is paid within seven days legal proceedings will be taken to reoover the same. After transacting a quantity of routine business and passing an aooount the Board adjourned. j u-A very good story oomes from the West Coast. Two young sparks on the coach "M' Lorded " and " Your Graced " eaoh other to suoh an extent that the other travellers took them for sprigs o( the nobility, and " behaved aooording," They never failed to "M' Lord " and "Your Grace " them m replying to their conversation, and "actually permitted the passengers to pay for liquor for them 1 " "Not at all stuok up" was the general i verdiot, when at length the midday stage was reached— but the noblemen were not at the dinner table. Inquiry followed from Jimmy the ooaohman, as 10 the whereabouts of the Globetrotters. " Git out," replied the urbane James, " they're no Lords, They are two digger ohapa working at Antonio's, who have been having you." You should have seen those passengers i '' A public meeting was held at Winchester on Saturday evening, to dieousß the present railway time-table. There was a very large attendance, nearly all tne business people of Geraldine being represented. After a Jengthy discussion it was resolved—" That the express train atop at South Bangiiataand Winchester on Saturdays. If required that the Station Master at Winchester, or guard, be empowered to atop the train and take up or eet down through passengers to Christohuroh or Dunedin, and that the Commissioners be requested to endeavor to make Borne arrangements for picking up the mails by the North expresß, as the present arrangements cause great delay." The resolution to be forwarded to tbe member for the district, requesting him to do his utmost to get the wish of the meeting carried out. In connection with the recent wreck of the ship Altmore at the Yasawas Group, Fiji, it may be remembered by some (says the "Auokland Star ") that about three yearß ago a Sydney Island sobooner called the JFranoisco Felix, with some thirty native passengers on board, mysteriously disappeared m the vioinity of the group, and not a traoe of ncr was ever obtained again. She was m oharge of Captain Soutbgate, brother-in-law of Captain W. E. Oliver, of the Union Steamship Company's Fiji steamer Ma where, and the master .had his' wife oil board with him. It was^supposed that all on board bad been oaptured and killed and eaten by the Yasawaa natives, for not a vestige of proof as to their fate has yet been obtained, although Captain I Oliver never ceased making endeavors toj aßoertain the fate of his sister and her husband, The " Daily Telegraph " (Napier) eayß j~ " Almost the natural outoome of the weak' ness of the Government ia dealing with the Omahu intertribal dispute was the affray this morning. It will b« remembered that the final decision of the Benata will oaee was that the positions of the olaimants remain m Btaty qpu pending the appeal to the Frivy Council, Notwithstanding thia one set of the olaimants entered pn grbughton'a land, and then oommenoed the dispute wbioh ended jn Mrs Donnelly and others being committed for trial. Following on this, Broughtou and hie party were committed for trial for ejeoting Mrs Donnelly's people; 90 it was made to appear to the natives tbat both sides were right and both sides wrong. This was a direct enoouragement to them to do as they liked. Mrs Donnelly's natives have been ploughing up Japd claimed by Broughton, and this had caused Buoh intense irritation that, when Turanga jiaraur/a and a lot of Other* 8 itered on a fresh geld this mprning wi.hplO-igha and teams, an affray ooourred/jo -hum JL'e Wata Bani shot Taura,nga m the Biomaoh w 0 bold foe Native Department responsible for au £«■ ttOttWW 1 The best medioine known is SANDER anu SONS' EUCALYPTI EXTRACT.
