Atmore said that there were one to two irregularities that would have to be inquired into, and might alter the position. | Lace curtains and casement cloths. Keen prices at J. W. O'Neill's.— Advtt.. . ' • The announcement that the Tenth Mounted Regimental Band intended to play in Seymour Square yesterday afternoon was apparently the signal. i for a downpour of rain, and once ! again the Band's plans went; agley through unfavorable weather condition*?. The Band has decided to render carols in various parts of the town as usual pn Christmas Day, but it is hoped that it will dissociate itself with Jupiter Pluvius before that occasion. Rain and Chrisftmas cheer are not an appropriate combination. Christmas furnishings at J. W. O'Neill's. Table ' damask and sei'viettes at bargain prices.—Advt. j Samples in hearth rugs; 20 per cent, under usual prices at J. W. O'Neill's.—Advt. There was a large congregation at Wesley Church last evening, when Mrs Nalder took the seryice,. being assisted in the preliminaries by Mr E. H. Penny. The subject on which Mrs Nalder spoke was Ramabai's wonderful faith mission in Mutki, India. The story of this wonderful Indian woman and of her mission is full of interest to those who have the cause of the heathen at heart. The mission! conducted by Pandita Ramabai is carried on without1 any^-human guarantee, never at any time asking any- > body for money, but just, looting to God for the supply of all that is necessary to carry on the, mission, Mrs Nalder told several stories of wonderful answers to prayer with regard to this mission. Many answers- /to prayers came at the moment of human extremity, but Pandita Ramabai and her workers'.are .'always confident of the supply of all the pressing needs of the mission. The food bill per week alone is £150, and for this woman to be able confidently to go on week by week like this is a tribute to her faith in God to supply their need. The . way that money ii sent,,l..and' other things, like clothes, blankets, etc., is wonderful, and people, hearing this story of this woman's faith are freely and willingly giving such, as they can for the support of a noble work among the child widows and other un- ; fortunate women of India. Mrs Nalder gives up, a comfortable home in Nova Scotia, ami travels the world telling the story of Pandita Ramabai.)

The new Member for Motueka, Mill. P. Hudson, was born at Dungarvan, Ireland, in 1860. He was educated at the Welts Grammar School, Fermoy College, by a private tutor, and at Crawford's Military j Academy, Dublin. He spent twentythree years coffee and tea-planting in j eyd'on, and came to New Zealand in ] 1904. He has been chairman of the j Haputale Planters' Association, Ceylon,, , and the Motueka Fruitgrowers' Union, the Nelson District Fruitgrowers' Association, and the New Zealand Fruitgrowers' Federation, and he is.a member of the Motueka Harbor Board. Linoleums at old prices, laid free of charge.-^T. W. O'Neill.—Advt. ; . "There is evidence that money is accumulating in the Dominion, said the chairman of the Auckland Stock Exchange (Mr G. A. Buttle), at the annual meeting of the Exchange last week. The banking returns showed the deposits were increasing. Now, while it was satisfactory to find that thrift was reaping its reward, from their point of. view it was anything but satisfactory to find la.rge_ sums being left on deposit with the banks. "If we are to have substantial propress," added Mr Buttle, "then we must develop the natural resources ,ot the country as well as our industrial manufactures. This can only be done witli the support of capital, and if the accumulating capital or the Dominion is locked up in bank deposits, it follows that our industrial concerns are starved for want of funds. Special values in Christmas furnishings at J. W. O'Neill's. A large assortment of tray cloths and runners just opened.—Advt. The loss which this district has sustained through the departure of Captain J. H. Goulding to join the .reinforcement draft now encamped at Trentham is undoubtedly a serious one. As a- member of the teaching staff of the Marlborough. High School during the past eight years, Mr Goukting has promoted a.lively .interest in all branches of athletics, and apart from his personal qualities he has" enjoyed a general popularity through .-the enthusiasm he has brought to bear in controlling the pastimes of the boys. Cricketers have .known, him as the most dashing and versatile player in the district, and on several occasions he lias represented the province' against outside teams. He imparted much of his knowledge in this pastime to the players associated with him in High School teams, and the result has been that several of those who have been coached by hint have graduated successfully into senior cricket. The cults of' swimming, football, and gymnastics also benefited -through" Mr ' Goulding's practical interest, and it is safe to predict that in following a military career during these sitrirrmg times he' will achieve success in. a position for which he is so admirably qualified. Prior to his departure for Trentham Mr Goulding,-was'given'a hearty sendofF by the High School pupils, and was presented with purses of sovereigns by the teaching staff and the pupils. Local "Old Boys", are combining for the purpose of-forwarding him a gift as a memento of happy associations in.the past and also in appreciation .of ■ his sterling qualities as a master. It is reported a common custom of the Germans to make attacks just before dawn, when the vitality of our men is lowest, and consequently the resistance offered cannot be so effective. ' It is the same way with a cough or cold. When the system is run,down you are more liable to influenza and colds in the head or chest. It is a wise precaution to take Baxter's Lung Preserver at the first indications of an attack, as this preparation builds up the system in a wonderfully short time, and will enable you to avoid epidemics of colds and influenza. Baxter's Lung Preserver, ltflOd a bottle at all stores and chemists.—Advt. « The week extending from May 21 to 29 has been, suggested as the period for holding a "National Industries Week" throughout New Zealand by ; the Wellington Industrial Association. ' Ifc has been thought that, at the present, when so many foreign-made, goods are shut. out through the restrictions necessarily brought about by the \\rar, New Zealand manufaci turers should make a special effort to impress upon the public the admirable quality of. many classes of goods that are manufactured in New Zealand, but which are to some extent at all events ignored for the less intrinsically: valuable foreign-made goods. The "Week" is to be held under the authority of the Industrial Corporation of New Zealand, and an effort is being made to interest every town in New Zealand in the event. Auckland and .■■Wellington'1, have practically pledged themselves to. organise a "Week in those cities, and in Wellington it is suggested that a monster procession should be allowed showing in tableau form the resources of New Zealand in the sphere of industry. -, ' The patriotic spirit, always reliable. Watson's No. 10 whisky.—-Advfc. ; Some peculiar bequests contained in the will of <a deceased Italian market gardener led to a Supreme Court case at Nelson the other day. The estate was valued at £1267, ai>.d out of this modest sum the Italian had bequeathed £400 to the municipality for the erection-of gates at the local cemetery, a further £40 for the erection of a luandsome tombstone and railings over his own grave, and that intended for ihis wife, £100 to the" local Roman Catholic Orphanage, £25 for a picnic for orphanage children (to be held,as near his grave as possible"), and £25 in consideration for his body being allowed to remain in the church for a specified period. His ■ widow,, who found that she possessed nothing beyond the income from £1167, sought the aid of the Family Protection Act. a.nd asked that a bigger proportion of the estate be allotted to her.' She stated that" she had two daughters, one of whom had married and gone back to Italy, and neither of the two would receive anything' from the estate till after her death. The Chief Justice expressed a wish to hear what the remaining daughter had to say, and adjourned fhe case accordingly. There is nothing tries the temper more than an irritating cough or cold in the head, and the sufferer is aa much a nuisance to. him self as to his friends. A cold is certainly Nature's way of throwing off impurities of the body, but^ if you wish to get rid of your cold in the shortest possible time utilise the tonic effects of Baxter's Lung Preserver, which restores the vitality of the body to normal.. Bax- , ter's Lung Preserver' is one of the j very few well-tried and successful i remedies. It is particularly suitable for children, being quite harmless and pleasant to take. Is lOd buys a big bottle from any storekeeper or chemist. Ask for Baxter's Lung Preserver, and see that you get it.— Advt. The patriotic spirit, always reliable. Watson's No. 10 whisky — Advt.
