{ Prohibition a Success.—Mrs Harrison Lee Cowie, the well-known temperance re' former ancl speaker, visits Akaroa on Monday A lecture is to be given in the Oddfellows'

Hall. Akaroa Land Sale.--The sale of 2£ acres cf land, situated just outside the borough of Akaroa. and next to tbe Borough Council's quarry reserve at the north end of the town, is reported, the purchase being at the rate of £100 an acre The land is Bteep, and is part of the D Ojley estate recently purchased by Mr G. Hammond. Mr J. Woodill was the purchaser. I irxLß Fiver Railway Station.—The renovation of the Lit'lo River Railway Station is now nearing completion. The building has been extensively repaired and repainted on the in- ide The new post office room which has beer, added to tbe railway build ings h now in use, aud, though small, is more convenient than the old arrangement for carrying on the postal business. 'Ihe outside of the railway building is now being repainted, together with the other railway buildings, which will considerably improve their appearance. The FiiircTOßAii Bolls.—The main rolls I for tbe coming election closed on Wednesday. who are desirous of coming on i to tho euppl mentary roil are advised to have i their claims sent in at once. Forms of en" I ro.ment aro procurable at every post office, I and electors are advised to read through the directions on the back of same carefully. If these are followed out no mistake oan be ; mad p. A common error is to have as witj ness a person who is not himself on the roll. I Another one is to omit the date. A numbor | of claimants also fill in the questions in lead ! pencil instead of ink, ancl tbis renders their ' names and addresses much more difficult to'pber. Any postmaster oan witness a ! claim, so that electors should find no diffi. > oulty in having their claims witnessed. It is i also to be remembered that every eleotor | who failed to vote at the last eleotion has hie I name taken automatically from tbe roll, and I must be reinstated. We believe a large nam ber who did not vote last eleotion will come to tbs booths thinking they still have the privilege cf a vote and find too late that their names had been erased. Thousands havo tried "NAZOL" for Colds in the Head. Bronchitis and Influenza and prefer it to any other remedy, because it is prompt in its action, effactive, and does not disorder the stomach.

Visitors,—There is a steady flow of visi* tors to Akaroa, and so far the season does not compare at all uafavourably with pre' vious ones. It has been suggested that the war rr ay make a difference in the number of visitors, but it will probably brine more out' side visitors to New Zealand. It is always noticeable that people do not travel a3 muoh as usual about eleotion time, We believe that aftei tbe election the hotel and board' inphouse keepers may expect a good season as far as visitors are conoerned. People will not travel home to England and the Continent, and the result of the war will be to make people take a sho.'ter and cheaper holiday,

Akaroa Butter Factory—A maet : ng of the directors of tbe factory was held yestei; day; present--Messrs A, J, Turner (chair man), Dierok, Cnnningham and Lawrence.
