LITTLE RIVER.

A terrific thunderstorm passed over Banks Peninsula early on Saturday morning. It was especially violent at Little River, 'where the thunder and lightning was accompanied by the worst baitstorm experienced in the district for many years. The hailstones rained fike shrapnel or machine gun bullets on iron roofs, and did considerable damage to fruit trees. The roads were thickly strewn with leaves and twigs cut from the trees, and the bills between Little River and Pigeon Bay were coated white with hailstones Several hours after the storm had passed, and the warmth of the Bun made itself felt, hailstones measuring a full inch in diameter were found in heaps. The storm effectively cleared the air, and the weather was gloriously fine for the holidays.

Hundreds of people went to Akaroa, and throughout the week end there was a continual stream of motor cars and motor-cycles through Little River.
