CHRISTCHURCH DAY BY DAY.
At the annual meeting of the Mother's Union yesterday Bishop Julius delivered an address on woman's place in the world.
_ There, is a rapid increase of hydatids in (Jhristchurch, if medical men are to, be believed (says the " Lyttelton Times"). The complaint, which is transmitted to man principally by dogs, is said to have a hold on the rabits or the Post Hills which in turn convey the disease to dogs.
The state into which some of the furniture in the old Provincial Council Chamber has got did not escape the eyes of a master builder present at the hearing of the dispute, in the carpentering trade yesterday. With his penknife he dug out from the table in front of him fairly large pieces of wood that was almost reduced to dust owing to the activities of the borer. It seems that it would be a wise move to replace the portions of the furniture so affected to prevent the furniture that it sound being infested with the same pest. ;
A special word of praise was accorded the founders of the. City of Christchurch yesterday by the Hon. W. A.'] Holman, Premier of New South Wales/-; In speaking at the civic reception accorded him, lie said that no city in New ; Zealand had been more wisely or I liberally provided for by the founders v than Christchurch. Everywhere, one [ could see that the founders had built for a future age. There was nothing mean; nothing cramped, nothing pusil- j lanimous here. The fu,ture_ had always been in the eyes of the pioneers, and they had seen-as in a vision the great growth which was certain tori come. Perhaps in their time they had been blamed for so looking into_ the future, but certainly they were justified by posterity. It was, he continued, a decided gratification for any democrat to come and see such evidence of the victories of the indomitable Anglo-Saxon spirit which had prevailed in this distant outpost of the Empire.
