Those who boastfully remark on the absence of poverty in our little community (says the "Otago Daily Times") would learn something by a visit to the weekly meeting of the Benevolent Trustees, and by seeing there the dreary procession of persons who, by misfortune, sickness, or lack of moral balance, are forced to seek charitable aid. The Mayor brought a case under the notice of the trustees that was pitiful enough, and yet was merely one of many. The husband was a feeble man, and earned only a few shillings a week. The wife, who was the mother of five small children, acted as waitress daily in a restaurant, for which she was rewarded with 1/ and her dinner. The trustees, needless to say, at once granted monetary relief. James Wilson, of Avondale, was sawing through a log yesterday, when one of its supports slipped, and the log, weighing nearly a ton. fell on to his foot, badly crushing it. Wilson, who was pinned to the ground, was released by a neighbour and taken to the hospital.
