TO THE EDITOR.
Sir,—A new light has dawned in Ashburton. May he continue to shine until in a brighter and clearer light he is eclipsed. For the information which he, John McKeague, has given, I trnst he will be paid. Doubtlws Mr Salter will see to it. Will Mr MclOague tell your readers whether the same percentage of alcohol, which he alleges is in a loaf of bread before going into the oven, is to be found in the same lonf after coming out of the oven ? Can he toll me how much bread I should need to eat before I should try to insert my street door key into a brick wall, and declare thr.t some one had blocked up the " key hole," or before I should embrace a pump and invite him to "come and have a drink." I know Mr McKeague is a man full of ingeniousness and extraordinary resources, so that I am not taxing him too much in asking these questions, and if he answers them, as lam sure he will, I shall be encouraged to ask him some other questions. —I am, etc., Presagbr.
