J. Turner, and he was famous for the excellent bread he made. He was alto a member of the Akaroa Borough Council and of the local Oddfellows' Lo'ge.

Fire.—About 10, 30 a.m, on Tuesday tbo Akaroa fire bell was rung, the trouble being that the house adjoining th« Akaroa butler factory was alight. It appeared tbat a Bpark from the factory chimney had lodged under tho iron roof and a fire had started The Akaroa Fire Brigade is to be complimented upon the expedition with whioh the memba s nrrived on the scene with hose and gear. The tire which was only in its infancy was soon subdued but the sheet iron had to ripped oS tbe eaves to allow the hose to get well in. The building is insured in the Liverpool, London, and Gl- be Insurance Company, and immediately the fire was reported to the Christchurch office, instructions were given to put the repairs into hand at once. The work was gone on with and has now been
completed, the total cost being a little over £4, Mr and Mrs Judd. wbu are living in the house were put to a great deal of inconvience, as all their furniture was taken out when the fire seemed dangerous. There eeema no doubt the factory chimney should be raised some ten or twelve feet higher, or 'he same trouble will occur Vritb this or another adjoining wooden building. The Metropole buildings, Technical School, Beswick tnd Harris' office. "Mail" Office, and Akaroa Boreugh Council are all fairly close to tbe factory. Mr and Mr." Judd were very grateful for the way in which residents came to their help. Had the fire occured at night the building would probably have gone. You can't expect to cure a complaint of the the lungs by merely pouring thngs into jour stomach -'NAZOL" treatment goes straight to tbe actual seat of the trouble, The perfect cold cure.
