Fire at Little Eiveb —A fire occurred at the head of thePuaha Valley, Little Eiver, on Thursday last, when the fourroomed cottage belonging to Mr F. Reed, situated opposite Mr Jas. Chapman's reair dence was burned to the ground. The fire took place about 9 p.m., and it is thought started in the chimney, which was defective. Messrs F. and C. Reed were in bed at the time, and only just escaped, loting practically everything. The fire waa seen in Little River quite plainly. The building was in. sured for £175.

LmLE River Post Offick.—A goed deal of dissatisfaction is felt in Little River concerning the Government's decision to add only a room at the present railway offices at the station to provide the residents in the district with a post office., This addition, which consists of a room, the dimensions of which are about 14ft x 12ft., are considered practically useless in providing resident with the privaoy they require. The GovemJ ment in the first place proposed to erect a building costing £1000, and aslually called tenders for the building, and some years ago a piece of Maori land was purchased on the opposite side of the road. The residents pointed out that such an expensive building was not required, and they wished the post offics combined with the railway offices. The Department then withdrew the separate building, It was expeoted that the additions would, however, asßume far more commodious dimensions than the building which is now being erected. Such a sm 11 room makes it impossible to carry on private bureau connection, which is what the residents most urgently require. The build« ing is to include private telephone bureau, counter, eta , so that there will be little improvement on the' present unsatisfactory state of affairs.
