With reference to a paragraph that ap. peared in our issue of the 18th ult. as to tne danger to health from using tea put up in lead packets, we are assured there is no more danger from tea packed in pound packets than there is from tea packed in chests lined with lead. All teas are and must be packed in lead before arrival in New Zealand. Tea blended or adulterated in the colony is put up otherwise for the sake of cheapness. Tea sold in the same state of purity as it leaves the gardens is always packed in lead packets so as to preserve its original aroma and strength for years. That deaths have occurred from using tea thus packed we are assured is merely a trade fiction. An English Court Judge has decided that an innkeeper is liable for the cost of a bicycle left on his premises should it be stolen while the owner is lunching.
