THE DURABILITY OF RIMU TIMBER.

TO THB KDITOB. Sib,—l am well aware that there is a great deal of prejudice against our native red pine as a timber for durability in furniture. I wish to lot the public know that I have been repairing an old 100 table made of this timber as far back as 1853, and I can testify to the fact that there is not a joint gone nor yet any split; in fact, the table is aa sound as when it waa made thirty-six years ago. It was made by aMr Hill, now living in Dowling street, I believe. Anyone wishing to see the table is welcome to do so at my place—l am, etc., A. Nelson. Dunedin, October 17. P.S.—I would suggest that the owner should send it to the Exhibition.—A.N.
