TO THE EDITOR. Sir,— l notice the pond in this park is almost dry. Its muddy bottom could therefore be easily cleaned at present, and might also be covered with sand to the depth of an inch or two, so as to make the water above it appear clear. As the stream now running into the pond is evidently not nearly large enough to keep it full, another adjacent stream ought to be made use of, or, better still, a pipe might be led into the pond from the City mains. Then, perhaps, a few perch could be added; and so the pond might be made a thing of beauty, and fit to be gazed upon by our Exhibition visitors.—l am, etc., Water. Dunedin, October 30.
