LITTLE RIVER NEWS.
[from our own correspondent.]
Grass seeding is now in full swing, and good progress has been made dur ing tbe week, So far, the labour on offer is greater than the demand, and a nnmber of men are waiting about expecting a start soon. Tbe crop is much lighter than last year. Tbe amount of undergrowfch'is heavy, and will ensure good winter feed. So far, accidents have been rare. One man in Puaha cut his knee rather badly, and had to have several stitches put in, Another had to be sent to Christ church on Tuesday, having been taken iil whilst working. Cut fingers are the exception rather than the rule tbis year,
PERSONAL. Misg A. Wright and Mr G. Wright, daughter and son of Mr and Mrs R. Wright, of "Bainesdale" House, leave on Friday by the s.s. Willochra, en route to Melbourne for a three months holiday.
