Electoral Koll3, —It is astonishing bow many electors do not realise that if they di , ' not vote last election their names came off the roll automatically. The result "bf this *ias been to increase the number on tht Supplementary 8011, and it is probable thai in spite of the warnings given that numbers >f electors will coma to the polling booths) on election day, and find their names are not on the roll.

These works have nil heer; sele ted carpfuily from (he classics, and th. pupils should find much benefit in having all there works at iheir di poial.

Thw PoT Office Clock—The po.;t office clock is a source of trouble to the unwary. It is seldom correct, and residents who know its vagaries put no faith in it. Howpver, stranger* ai» continually beirg led astray by its faults of five minutes or so. The trouble will b* remedied when the new post office building i* used, as a new clock will he put up Certainly tbe present one is of very little use, an i it is debatable whether it would not be better to stop it altogether than to have it incorrect so often,

Akaroa's Appboagh —Now that the Reorea tion Ground has been drained, it would be a great improvement if that end of the town behind Waecherle's Hotel could bo tidied up Wβ believe it would bo possible for the Borough to acquire the land necessary to have the beaoh reclaimed towards the bViek ki.'n. It would only mean a small extension of the Borough, and the work of rrolamation could be goue on gradually. We realise that the Borough is only a small one and its means are limited. It is wise, however, to keep there works in view, especially when they affect the appearance of the town go materially. Akaroa may be a beautiful little Borough, but its approach is not a thing of beauty.

Buildings By?law—At Wednesday's meet ing of the Counoil, Cr Walker contended that the Council was not enforcing the building bylaw correctly. Hβ held that direotly plans and specifications were reosived by the Council*lhe Town Clerk should notify the Building Committee, and it could meet and consider same. I£ thpy were satisfied' it was all in order, they could notify the contractor that he could proceed at once. If they found that there was some objection, they could hold up the work until the whole Council considered tho matter. He thought that the present procedure of the Council whereby the work was held up systematically till fourteen days after receipt of plans and specifications wae unnecessary, and gave contractors and builders a great deal of f xrra bother. The Mayor disagreed with Cr Walker, and held that it waa not rigbt for a committee, which was a minority of the Council, to decide whether the work was (o be gone on with or not.

Peninsula fires.—The rscent spell of fine wpftfher has bren a source of great anxiety to farmers in the Peninsula, apart from the small growth of feed. In some nf the bays fires have been raging, causing the los 3of a good deal of fencing, and what is worse, pome oX the ffw clumps of native bush left. In some instances Bheep and lambs have been lost. The dead straw in the grass ,, seed paddocks is now very inflammable, and, aided by the strong nor.westers,.westers, tires, where one s started, have spread rapidly. At Le Bo 'a Bay half the adult population was hp 3 a work for two or throe days chucking a' , gat >g out a big bluzr The labour of si'i IMP 115 the fires is great on the Penin. sul OW gto the many dry lops scattered all o sgftt >c paddock?, which smoulder for a long Jos and a breeze cauascs the.ni to burst tltO fnraes. A good deal of damage was done by fire in Eobinson's Bay and Duvauchelle, Yesterday another fire of considerable magnitude was rug'ng on the Holmes Bay Saddle. We were unabla to ascertain tbe extent of the damnge.
