The annual meeting of the Canterbiiry Amateur Athletic Club was held at Christchurch last night. The balance sheet showed a credit balance of £22; assets £135; liabilities nil. Mr F. Wilding was reelected president. It was decided to request the Amateur Athletic Association to hold the next Championship Meeting at Christchurch. The Secretary of the New Zealand Assistants' Union, Christchurch,telegraphed to the Ashburton Early Closing Association, suggesting Saturday as the day for the observance of the weekly half-holiday. In the Legislative Council yesterday the Roman Catholic Lands Extension Bill was read a third time; the Education Reserves Amendment Bill was read a second time; the Coroners' Inquest Bill was committed, and progress reported after consideration of clause 2. The Educational Reserves Leasing Act was further considered in committee. A new clause was inserted so that a lease shall be let in future by auction or public tender. The Bill was reported' aB amended, and the third reading fixed for next Tuesday.' The second reading of the Thames Harbor Board Bill was fixed for Tuesday fortnight. Says the " Post" :—After the inquest at; the Hospital upon the body of the half-caste Frank Abel had been held the Maori witness Hefca Ngatuhi had & conversation with Mr Eb. Baker, J.P., who had officiated as interpreter, in the couTse of which Heta remarked, " I knew Frank's (the deceased) time had come," and on being asked to explain himself, he added—" Frank dug a grave the day before he was shot, and whilst digging it he ate a meal in the grave. You know, Mr Baker, Maoris never eat whilst peforming any office for the dead, and so the next day Jie was wounded to death. ! Yes, Frank's time had come." Frank Abel, it would appear, during lifetime out-Heroded the grave-diggers in "Hamlet," for although it is recorded of them that—much to the melancholy Prince's disgust—they sang and even indulged in a "modest, beaker," they never partook of their bread and cheese whilst engagwl in the task of grave-making. A meeting was held at Christchurch last night of m6n who consider themselves entitled to grants of land under the Naval and Military Settlers Lands Act, and who coni'plain that the Commissioner of Crown Lands has hot fulfilled the promise made in May to enquire into about 20 claims lodged before the court that month. They are particularly anxious to have the claims investigated in time for the report to be presented to the present session of Parliament. The meeting was adjourned without having decided on a definite line of action, which is to be fixed at a future meeting. At the Winchmore aided school examina" tion, held on the 6th ult., sixteen children were presented in the three standards, twelve of whom passed, and four failed, the percentage of passes being 76. The best medicine is Sander and Sons' Eucalpyti Extract. Test its eminent powerful effect*) in coughs, colds, influenza, etc.— the relief is instantaneous. Thousands give the most gratifying testimony. His Majesty the King of Italy and medical syndicates all over the world are its patrons,, Read the official reports that accompany each bottle. We have no occasion to offer rewards in proof of the genuineness of our references. The official reports of medical clinics and universities, the official communications of the Consul-General for Italy at Melbourne; the diploma awarded International Exhibition, Amsterdam—all these are authentic documents, and, as such, not open to doubt. W. add here epitome of one of the various cases treated at the clinic of Schultz, M.D. Professor, etc. —"C. 8., 24 years old; congestional abscess on the thigh. Incisions made in two places. Although Lister's dressing was applied, the secretion became, two days later, very copious, and had adopted a fqetid decomposed character. The temperature rose enormously. In consequence the dressing was removed and in its place were made during the day-time repeated irrigations with Eucalypti Extract.' The offensive foeter disappeared very soon, the fever abated within a few days, and the patient recovered after the lapse of several weeks. In this instance we must not lose sight of the fact that the latter treatment saved the patient's life."(Advt.) 3 Public Notice CLEARING SALE. STOCK MUST BE REDUCED. \ I.
