At the annual convention of the Auckland Provincial Christian Endeavor Union Mr R. B. fleriot, M.A., said that on fine Sundays the Remuera road was a veritable Rotten Row, and the harbor was white with the sails of pleasure boats. A recent visitor to Abyssinia says that that country is a land of plenty and cheapness. You niay buy chickens for ten a penny, and milk is to be had for the asking. Butter costs about threepence a pound, and a good sheep from half a dollar to three dollars. Everybody should join Montague’s Circulating Library; subscription, 2s 6d per quarter. New books added weekly. Splendid reading.— [Advt.]
