A WORD OF WARNING.
TO THE EDITOR. Sir,—For weeks past I have noticed parcels of rabbits being booked from the Mandeville biding, addressed to Dunedin, which naturally Buggeßts that " bunny " is to help to supply the creature comforts of our Dunedin friends. Such being the case, I think it only fair to acquaint the public of that City with the fact that for fully a month previous to this date the country from which those rabbits are taken has been systematically " poisoned." Certainly it is quite within the range of possibility, that those sent may have escaped the effects of the poisoned grain, and jumped from the fryingpan into the fire by going into traps, but it is an undeniable fact that the risk of eating such is very great. I don't suppose for one moment that the consignee of the rabbits suspects that what I have stated has been the case, but I would advise him to inquire, as serious results may be attendant on both his customers' lives and his business.—lam, etc., Phosphoous. Mandeville, August 9.
