Another Fall of Fnow. —Snow fell on the Peninsula hills on Sunday night, a heavy lain lasting a few hours falling on the lower level. The snow disappeared with jester. day's sun. The absence of heavy winter rains is o using the farmers of Banks Pen. insula a good deal nf anxiety, as so far there nap hardly been a good soaking rain
hroughout the winter, and springs that dried up last spring have not y. j t commenced running ag.iin. Unless there are heavy rains during July and August the prospect (or a good season wilt be very lemoet.
Overflow of Electric Light Reservoir— The Electric Light reservoir at Akaroa, has been over flowing during the daytime of late, and flowing down the hill below; Mr T. Lewitt, Ch. of the Lighting Committee of the Council, informs us that a ball cook will be fixed on the G<ehnn Vall-y pipe at the reservoir, so that the water will be automa' tically shut ofi when the reservoir is full, hs is the case with the Balg<>eri creek pipe line, The trouble is that the reservoir will have to be emptied when the ball cock is installed, and there is such a heavy demand on the plant that it is only when the water pply is at its greatest that the reeorvoir nan be emptied. The work will be carried out as soon as possible. Littlb River Artillekxman.—A euchre
■<unmni«nt and social in honour of Artillm muri Andrew Gilbert wa* held in the Little liiver Town Hall on Saturday Dight A

Mr J 0 Coop, chairman of the Patriotic Committee, made a present of a Mit of pipoe to the guest. • The Key Mr
Mul>3 also spoke, and the guest suitably responded. Mr Gilbert left fo- Trentham
to-day and sails with the next contingent. The pr;z°s for the euchre tournament were won as follows:—lady's first, Miss DMIy Wright : gent's first, Mr Tom Brankio ; i .dy's booby. Miss Ivy Chapman; gent's Oooby, Mr T X Taylor. The two latter
pi-z-is were an extra large sized spoon and a ■>cythe stone, both done up in a multiplicity of impe.d, cardboard boxes, straw, and every imaginable wrapping, the undoing of which caused much amusement. At the close ef the (unotiou all joined hands, with the guest in (h« centre of tbe ring, and Aul Lang Syne wnß sung. The gathering dispersed after einging God Save the King.
From north to south, from east to west, I lour the world with tireless zest, Mid tropic beat and Arctic snow, My health to simple means I owe. I tarough all I have one fatthful friend, fn storm and stress prompt aid to lend, That fortifies roe to endue, 'i'is world famed Woods' Great Peppermint Core.
NO COLD IS "NAZOL" PROOF
