DROUGHT IN AKAROA.

SERIOUS POSITION,

Much anxiety is felt in Akaroa over the Borough water supply. The reservoir bas fallen all the week, and it is considered that if there is po gain in water the Council will have to turn on the water from tho electric light reservoir to keep things going. There would be serious trouble if not enough water was available for drainage purposes, and this complication has to be guarded against. Ratepayers have been aeked not to use water for their gardens, and to use only what is required for domestio purposes. The Akaroa Borough Council intends to take strong measures to prevent anyone usinj' hoses, etc., as the foeeman states tbat the supply of water is lower than it has ever been since the water supply scheme was put into operation The paddocks are all dried up, and it is pitiful to see stock waiting about for willow trees to be cut down for their food. If no rain oomes it is impossible to see how these animals oan come through tbe winter.
