TO THE EDITOR. Sir,—A week back or thereby we had Mr Mellor's admirable lecture on ' Microbes' —microbes malevolent, working to pull us down ; microbes benevolent, toiling to keep us up; microbes putrifactive, for ever reducing dead carcasses back to elemental compounds. A gentle but not sweetsmelling commentary upon this excellent Sanitary Institute (Town Hall) lecture has been visible for three days past within 100 yards of the door of a vice-president of the Sanitary Instituto, and only about fifty from the business premises and residence of our most worshipful mayor. This commentary takes the form of a dead cat, swollen and putrifying, as it ha 3 lain for the time mentioned at the corner of Clarke and High streets.

A suggestion has been made to bundle up the defunct tabby and send it—not prepaid—to the local inspector of nuisances, but someone assures me there is no such official in Dunedin. At any rate there are plenty of nuisances.—l am, etc., A.M. (D). Dunedin, September 11.
