GREAT POSTAL CENTRE.

CONTROL OVER 234 OFFICES. SAVINGS BANK FIGURES. Hamilton now is the centre of a postal district and its chief post office controls no less than 234 offices, the largest number in the Dominion, with the exception of the total under the jurisdiction of the chief post office at Auckland. The Hamilton district extends from Mercer in the north to Waimarino in tho south and from Tokaanu at Taupo to Kawhia on the sea. In Hamilton itself there is a branch post office, that of Hamilton North, which serves that end of tho town and which does very considerable business. The" surest indication of tho general prosperity of any town is found in tho post office savings banks returns and those of Hamilton afford striking proof to the prosperity of the district. The following figures for the five post offices handling the largest Bavings bank amounts, are taken from the New Zealand Gazette for last year : —

Tho general post and telegraph revenue for Hamilton for the quarter ended December 31 last was also substantially ahead of most other places, being £58,925, as against Dunedin's £43,725, Napier's £29,520, Wanganui's £27,200, Invercargill's £21,235, New Plymouth's £21,124 and Gisborne's £13,466. This is a very healthy indication of general prosperity.

ELECTRICAL SUPPLIES.

MESSRS. TURNBULL AND JONES. LTD. NEW BRANCH AT HAMILTON* An unbounded faith in the future pros-, pcrity and development of the ,Waikato district has been demonstrated in a practical form by that enterprising firm of electrical engineers, Messrs. Tumbull and Jones, Ltd., who have opened a new branch in Hamilton. The new premises are in the State Fire Department's new buildings, whero this firm has Becured commodious offices and a very fine show room, together with stores and workshops. Machinery for a separate organisation has been set up in Hamilton, so that Messrs. Turnbull and Jones will be ahlo to deal with all Waikato inquiries from tho Hamilton office, thereby saving I delay and ensuring satisfaction to the customer. It is proposed to kcop a full selection of tho latest heating appliances and lighting fittings, electric motors and all wiring accessories. The Auckland manager of tho firm has just returned from a trip to Canada and tho United States, and while abroad ho obtained tho sole agency for domestic electric appliances manufactured by the Superior Electric Company of Canada. These appliances icome under the new preferential tariff to British goods, and Messrs. Turnbull and Jones expect to bo ablo to sell them at prices vory much below what they have been compelled to ; ask for tho Amorican article in the past. The manager also purchased a large j quantity of electric light fittings quite | now in design and workmanship to any- ! thing yet seen in New Zealand. Another ! new agency which he was able to obtain I was that for the Blue Ribbon Electric ! Milking Machine This is a < small BelfI contained 2-cow plant requiring only a j i horse power motor to drive it. It is easily lifted about tho dairy, and for operation requires onlv the ordinary electric iron plug. This means inexpensive wiring. The cost of the machine to the farmer will be about one quarter I the price now being paid for milking plants. In view of tho general use .to which electricity will be put in the very near future farmers should familiarise themselves with this admirable little machine. Messrs. Turnbull and Jonos have the most up-to-date show room in Auckland, and extend a cordial invitation to all interested to pay them a visit, when information on any electrical subject or quotations for electric plant will be gladly given with no obligation to the inquirer.

RANGIRIRIS CONQUERED.

STUDEBAKERS GREAT FEAT. A reporter, hearing that Mr. S. Tombs had just arrived from Auckland to Hamilton over the infamous Rangiriri hills, called upon him afc Messrs. J. Tombs and Co.'s up-to-date garage in Collingwood Street. "I suppose you had a rough run over tho Rangiriris ?" the reporter asked. "Make no error about that," replied Mr. Tombs, "but we got through without a stop, thanks to our splendid little car." "What did you come through in?" was the next question. "The Studebaker Economy Light Six." said Mr. Tombs. He added that although they did not stop the trip was necessarily slew, and to give some indication of the ordeal that the car had gone through pointed out the identical car. It was difficult to imagine that it was a new car only just arrived from the firm's headquarters in Auckland, so bespattered with mud was it. The wheels were one conglomerate mass of mud, so thick that it was difficult to understand how the wheels could revolve. Mr. Tombs then went on to enumerate the many good points of the Studebaker Light Six which had enabled them to traverse safely one of the worst roads in Now Zealand. Incidentally, he mentioned that he had brought through over 40 cars this season and bad never to seek assistance of any outside help but a longhandled shovel! Mr. Tombs said that the Studebaker was a handy car for the country, not only because of its power and quick acceleration, but because of its short turning radius and ample road clearance. Its clearance of 10in. permitted driving over high crowned roads without any of the difficulties attending cars of low clearance. The evenly-balanced weight of the light six chassis and its long elliptic springs made it possible to drive over rough and rutty roads such as the Rangiriris with comparative; smoothness and absence from side-swav, while the fact that it is fitted with o2in. by 4in. cord tyres added considerably to its efficiency and comfort. The flexiblity of the engine control gave great confidence, said Mr. Tombs, because it was possible to come down to as low as two miles an hour on top gear without any danger of stalling the engine, while the low running cost was a feature that appealed to everyone at the present time. Mr. Tombs said that he had worked motor-cars as hard as anyone, but had never seen one that stood the punishment of such awful roads as the Rangiriris and came through in such firstclass mechanical condition as the light six. As showing the popularity of the Studebaker, in nine months in California 6054 Studebakers were sold, as against 4353 of the next most popular make, while in New York for the month of December last 316 Studebakers were sold, against 78 of the next favourite make. Studebakers will be shown at the Winter Show, where full information can be obtained at J. Tombs and Co.'s stand.

TONSON GAELICS, LTD. EVERYTHING FOR THE HOME. For many yearsi the old-established firm of Tonson Garlick Company, Ltd., Auckland, have served both town and country faithfully and well, with " everything for the home." Their country business crew to auch an extent that the firm realised that in common fairness to their country clients, a branch outside Auckland was necessary. Accordingly, to save country customers the expense of going to Auckland to make their purchases, a branch was opened in Victoria Street, Hamilton, and needless to say, the firm's enterprise has been well rewarded. The name of Tonson Garlick has long stood for quality, and the many repeat orders which the firm has received are striking evidence that customers realise that they always' get the utmost value with this firm, and that they can always depend upon receiving only the best quality. Afe the Winter Show which opens to-morrow, the branch will be showing a magnificent bedroom suite. This has been constructed in the firm's own factories, from Queensland maple, and finished in mahogany colour. In style and finish, the suite is characteristic of the work of that great artist Chippendale. Tho stand will also have on exhibit everything necessary for the furnishing of a modern bedroom, while the goneral decorative design will be a correct setting for the articles displayed. This blending of surroundings with the furniture of a room is a feature of Tonson GarliCk's business. The beauty of many an exquisite suite of furniture is lost in unsuitable atmosphere, and it is here that Tonson and Garlick's expert's advice is at tho disposal of customers. If required they will provide suggestions as to what curtains, floor coverings, and general decorative effect will best set off the furniture, and by availing themselves, of this advice, many customers have had their homes brightened, and the general effoct of their homes greatly improved. Comfortable and attractive furniture costs no more than the comfortless and ugly variety, and Tonson Garlick aim at providing only furniture that will be useful to the owners, and be admired by their friends. Many a man is driven to seek the comfort of the chairs, say, at his club, because in an ill-advised moment, he purchased chairs from which he derives no pleasure, whereas, if he had visited Tonson Garlick, ho would have been suitably advised as to what to buy, and would never have regretted his purchase. The Hamilton showroom is next to the King's Theatre, and in quit e close proximity to the Winter Show, and country visitors having a few moments at their disposal, can spend them profitably by the large and varied stock, so tastefully displayed. They can be assured of a cordial welcome.

THE HUDSON PATENTS.

BOILERS, FIREPLACES, CHIMNEYS. ,'KONKO DWELLING MATERIAL. It will be of interest to many to know that 90 per cent, of the dwellings orectqd in Auckland and suburbs in tho past 12 months, and a large percentage of those in tho country, have been installed with Hudson's patent portable reinforced pumice-concrete boiler frames. These are manufactured at Hudsons Concrete Boiler Company's Works, Railway Sading, Eemiuera. The company's office is at Sanford's Buildings, corner of Customs and Albert Streets, Auckland. This use of the boiler points to the existence of recognised sterling qualities. Hudson 8 boilers have been on tho market for over 11 years, and an examination reveals advantages which sblould ensure tho universal adoption of the invontion in the wash-house of every home. These advantages are : a cool wash-house; conservation of heat; ' minimum of fuel, whether it bo wood, coal, gas, or electricity ; and suitability for inside or outside use. Tho boiler has practically taken tho place of tho bricked-m coppor and iron frame, while its cheapness is a further recommendation. It is only recently that the well-known Hudson Boiler Casing Company, Ltd., has placed on the market a portable reinforced pumice-concrote fircplaco and chimney. These are approved by the Auckland City Council, and are already in use in a number of city buildings, and are also in great demand in country districts. They are a boon in the back country, whore bricks are hard to procure and labour costly, while for week-end cottages and shacks they cannot be beaten. Tho fireplaces and chimneys, which aro made in two sizes, are built in sections. Each section is easily handled, and may be erected without employing skilled labour. The sections are fireplace, shoulder, flue-blocks one foot squaro to. extend chimney to any desired height, ornamental top or cap. Tho advantages over the ordinary brick chimney are well worth investigating by those contemplating building. Moreover, the patent has tho merit of cheapness. If desired, the fireplaces- and chimneys may bo covered with a single thin coat of concrete, consisting of three parts of coarse washed sand to one part of cement and a little Pudlo. A stucco finish also adds greatly to the appearance. A dependable, durable, hygienic nonconductor has been patented in the form of Konka budlding material, of which Hudson's Concrete Boiler Casing Company, Ltd., hold the manufacturing rights for Auckland Province. It has been tried out for many years, passed severe Government tests, and approved by _ the leading architects of the Dominion. It has silenced all open-minded critics with its successful service. Borer-proof, weatherproof, fire-proof it is accepted as readily to-day for the expensive mansion or costly public building, as for the average residential or humble cottage, or motorshed. On a brick or concrete foundation it will last a century or more with the minimum of maintenance, no painting beint; required. The Konka house can be easily altered, added to, and even shifted. Among the thousand and more Konka buildings already erected in the "Dominion during the last decade, the Government and public bodies have set a eood example in the use of tho dependable material, Konka. Hundreds of workers' and soldiers' homes have been built of Konka with great satisfaction to all parties. L. W. FAVILLE. PASTRYCOOK AND CONFECTIONER. In a town such as Hamilton, where many large businesses have developed quickly from small beginnings, probably none has progressed to the same rapid extent as has that of L. W. .Faville, pastrycook and confectioner. Starting, only a few years ago with one small shop, Mr. Faville's business methods appealed to tho Hamilton public so well that within a short time he had to open a branch shop. The business still grew rapidly and a few months ago Mr. Faville found it necessary to open a branch shop at Frankton. His enterprise has proved an unqualified success, Frankton residents finding it a great convenience to have such &n up-to-date shop in their midst, thus being saved the time and expense of having to go to Hamilton. The branch shop has been fitted up on most modern lines and a large stock of cakes, pastry and confectionery of the same excellent quality as that retailed in Mr. Faville's Hamilton shops is always available. In* tho manufacture of all goodß sold in his three shops M\ Faville uses only the highest grade materials and as the size of his business necessitates him buying in large quantities it follows that customers reap the benefit in lower prices. Cakes and pastry manufactured by Mr. Faville have i, distinctive flavour of their own. This in duo to first quality butter always being used and to the fact that the system of baking always ensures that the goods are properly cooked. Another point, and a very important one, too, is that none but experts are employed in the manufacture of any article. Mr. Faville realises by experience that it does not pay to have good materials spoiled by bad workmen and he has now got together a staff of experts that would be difficult to equal anywhere in the Dominion. Mr. Faville's bread a high reputation and the digestive Pavis bread, for which Mr. Faville is agent, is rapidly increasing in popularity. Coming to the special lines,' wedding, birthday, and Christmas cakes are made to the customers' order and design, and in this connection some excellent examples of the sugar artist's work have been turned out by this well-known firm, Mr. Faville will deliver anywhere in Hamilton or Frankton and rail goods anywhere in the Waikato. Visitors to the Winter Show should make a point of making a call at one of Mr. Faville's shops.

TIBBY AND MACDONALD. EXPERT MOTOR ENGINEERS. The well-known 'Waikato engineering firm of Messrs. Tibby and Macdonaid, with their usual enterprise, have again secured space at tho Winter Show, and their exhibit will bo one of considerable interest to farmers and those interestea in motor-cars and engineering generally. A feature of tho stand will be the widelypopular Fletcher milking-machine, which will be seen in active operation. This machine is claimed to be one of the most sanitary over invented; it is easy on the cows and a very free milker. It is simple to run and its method of construction makes it particularly sanitary, while another advantage which will appeal to all farmers is that there are no working parts over the bails. The cups are simple and operate easily, while ordinary tube inflation is used, not an expensive moulded one. Only experts are employed in making installations of the machino and consequently once a Fletcher machine has been erected the farmer's troubles cease. This firm also handle the well-known Chalmers' and Ruston-Horneby cars, while at their capacious and weliappointed garage in Ward Street repairs are efficiently and expeditiously carried out. Spare parts, oil and benzine are always in stock, while visitors to the show will find this garage a handy place in which to leave their car* in perfect safety. The engineering department is replete with the most modern machinery, and repairs to all classes of agricultural machinery are always carried out with entire satisfaction to the customer. Engine troubles are always dealt with in a capable manner, and in repairing magnetos the firm have special technical knowledge and experience to assist them. Tibby and Macdonaid are a progressive firm who realise that service is essential to success. They give the beet service possible, no matter in which department it is required, and their recognition of the value of good service has placed them in the proud position of being one of the leading firms of the kind in the Waikkato.

THE B. B. HOLLOW BLOCK CO., LTD.

This company's exhibit is one of the most interesting in the show to those -who are- contemplating building, and is the product of local industry. The various units required in the erection of a modern house are pre-cast at the company's worlis in Hamilton, and no expense has bcon spared in designing and manufacturing a system of concrete cavity wall construction which for economy and durability will place the concrete house within the reach of the person of modest means. The B. B. block is not a dry-pressed block. The units are made of liquid concreto having the correct proportion of shingle, cement and .water to ensure a voidless concrete of maximum strength.

The B. B. block is the only all-wet double reinforced continuous cavity concrete block on the market to-day. The double reinforcements are made with No. 8 galvanised wire and are continuous round each block. They are not merely wire ties. The system of ventilation adopted in tho B. B. block gives a continuous live-air current in th'e outer walls which draws the impure air from each room in the building, thereby ensuring perfect ventilation without draught. The blocks measure 18in. long by 6iin. high by 7in. wid«y including tho cavity, which is one-third the width of the wall. One hundred and twenty-five blocks cover an area of 100 jwuare feet. Each block takes the place of eight ordinary bricks, the two sides of the walls forming the cavity are erected in one operation, while a saving in mortar equal to 160 per cent, is effected in comparison with cavity wall construction in ordinary brides, and no time is lost building in the wire ties so necessary in other forms of cavity construction work. A very complete and descriptive catalogue of the various building units has been compiled, and we strongly recommend those about to build to inspect the exhibit and secure one of those catalogues.

SOMETHING NEW IN MILKING MACHINES. THE LATEST TRELOAR INVENTION. For many years the small' dairyman, with his herd of ten or fifteen cows, has had to face the sordid drudgery of hand milking with little hope of relief from his monotonous task. He has looked with envy upon his more fortunate neighbour, who, though having a- larger herd, has yet found the milking operation a time of pleasure through being the fortunate owner of a Treloar milking machine. He has sought in vain for an effective milking device within reach of his pocket, and such as would be justified by the of his returns; nothing of such a nature could be found and he has returned to his twice daily task with bitterness and loathing. It has devolved upon the inventor of the world-famous Treloar milking machine to find a solution of this problem, and the result is now on exhibition at the Waikato Winter Show under the designation of the Treloar Junior Milking Machine. This new machine, while being of diminutive dimensions, is not too small to be effective, or too lightly constructed to be serviceable. On the contrary, it has a margin of capacity well above its work and is of sturdy "design and excellent finish. It is exceedingly simple and yet does not lack any of those details essential for securing the best results; as a matter of fact, it is built under those exclusive' Treloar patents which have brought to the larger machine such, a, wide and well-deserved popularity. The price is such as will recommend itself to the man of small means, and it is safe to predict a large and immediate dwnand for such a useful commodity. The same -firm is also exhibiting its larger machine, still further improved, and still setting the fashion in design. It has long ago discarded the use of iron piping in the erection of plants, thus more than anticipating the action of the Government, which is now exercising so strict a supervision over work of this nature. In addition to this, the Treloar Company has dispensed altogether with the use of a vacuum tank, a small patented feature making the achievement of what is even now in some circles considered impossible an accomplished fact. There is also a new and wonderfully effective releaser, and a vacuum pump of extraordinary efficiency. We must not omit to mention that a new teat cup has been produced which is already leaping into prominence, not only on account of its extreme simplicity, but also because of its general effectiveness and tho wonderful ease with which it can be cleaned.

Men -who claim to have tried every well-known cup on the market state that the new Treloar Teat Cup is, to be exactly literal, " the daddy of the lot." There are many refinements in the machine that cannot be mentioned here and which only a visit to the Treloar exhibit'can adequately reveal. The head office of the firm is situated in Collingwood Street, Hamilton.

MESSRS. D. McL. WALLACE, LTD. Messrs. D. McL. Wallace, Ltd., who are well known in the Waikato and Thames Valley districts as the manufacturers of the Pilkington milking and testing machine, are exhibiting in the Waikato Winter Show a machine that marks a great progressive step in the history of the modern milking machine, namely, a releaser machine having the means whereby the individual cow may be tested. Previously this was impossible? unless the dairy farmer went to the expense of putting in extra testing machines. Now, thanks to this latest invention, every cow, as it comes into the bail, can be milked in the ordinary way, the milk weighed a sample taken for test, and the milk then taken through the pipe-line to the releaser in the usual manner. We believe everyone is agreed that herdtesting has come to stay. We also believe that had the dairy farmer possessed the means of testing his cows, in conjunction with the releaser machine, without having to expend large sums of money for separate machines, that herd-testing would have been a firmly-eßtablished practice a considerable time ago. Every farmer who contemplates machinemilking this season, and, in fact, every man and woman interested in the dairy industry, should make a point of seeing this machine at the..Waikato Winter Show. In addition to the fact that the construction of the machine enables tho dairy farmer to carry out the operation of testing without extra expense or trouble, the makers claim that the machine is most sanitary and effective, because, being a one-pipe line machine there is no possibility of dirt or stale milk lodging in unnecessary air pipes or fittings, and thus contaminating the milk. Another advantage is that tho machine is so easy to take apart or assemble; this fact, of course, emphasising how convenient it is for keeping the machine clean. The releaser is by far the most up-to-date on the market, and being made of tinned copper is practically everlasting. We may state that it is absolutely impossible to flood this releaser and those dairymen , who liiavc been uniortunate enough to

experience the annoyance of having their vacuum tank and pump full of milk winappreciate to the full the great advantages of having a releaser fhat is absolutely sure to work correctly. This releaser can be safely usied on any size plant, and, having a great capacity—releasing at the rate ot 10 gallons per minute— absolutely safety is assured. The machine is a, quick and clean milker, and we can assure prospective buyers that there is no tendency on the part of the cups to fall off. In addition to being manufacturers of the Piutington milking and testing machine, Messrs D. McL, Wallace, Ltd., hold the agency for the Alfa Laval separator, recognised as the cleanest skimmer and the most strongly constructed separator on the market to-day. Their other agencies include Booth Mac Donald .implements and farm machinery, and Ford cars, trucks, and tractors. The firm has establishments at Hamilton, Te Aroha,, Mater mats* and Thames, so that they are always on the spot to deal with the farmers' requirements. In addition to their branches, agencies have been established in the Bay of Plenty with Mr. W. Brownlee, Matata, and at Opotiki with Mr. A. J. Anderson, of that town.

u i - ■ JAS. J. NIVEN AND CO., LTD. GENERAL AND REFRIGERATING ENGINEERS. Visitors to the Winter Show who are interested in engineering and machinery w'll find much that will interest them at the exhibit of Messrs. Jas. J. Niven and CO., Ltd., general and refrigerating engineers. This firm, who are the only manufacturers of freezing machinery in the Dominion, will be exhibiting ons oi their well-known National ccmpreeisors of three tons ice-making capacity, with condenser and all accessories necessary for the com- ; Elete highrpressure side. Vrh*reva>r they ave been installed these vaachines have always given entire satisfaction,' the low running cost has also idstti most favourably commented upon, Th«y also show one of their small "Cambridgii" 'Jjproved Eatent suction gas-producer plants of 20 .p. capacity. This well-known arm are sole licensees for the manufacture aid sale of this very popular plaf>t, cf which upwards of 12,000 n.p. have been in*'*»Ued by them since 1915.

A large and efficient staff of skilled engineers is employed, and any repair or engineering work is always carried out expeditiously and in a thoroughly workmanlike manner. Inquiries are solicited at the exhibit during the show. FARMERS' CO-OPERATIVE AUCTIONEERING CO., LTD. EVERYTHING FOR THE FARMER. The thousands of farmers who will be visiting the Winter Show this week will be particularly impressed by the Farmers' Co-operative Auctioneering Co's. display of all kinds of materials, implements, and machinery and supplies for the farm. The Farmers' Auctioneering Co. has one of the largest spaces in the show in order to exhibit to the best advantage the very numerous lines in which they deal. A portion of the space has been reserved for root and other crops grown- with F.A-C. seeds and fertilisers. Sutton's well-known English seeds, for which the firm are sole agentej will make a most attractive exhibit, and will be well worth a visit in themselves. Another section of the stand will be devoted to the agricultural implements the F.A.C. has for sale, while in close proximity will be a comprehensive display of rubber goods such as tyres and all kinds of motor accessories. Attractive stands contain calf foods, pig meals, and lucerne, and other articles for the farm. Space will not permit mentioning everything that will be shown in this attractive stand, but the

following are a few of the company's agencies in the 14,000 square mn.es of country over which the firm operates: — P. and D. Duncan and Massey-Harris {arm implements and machinery, Hupmobile and Westcott motor-cars, Ridd Milking machines, Viking separators, Lister shearing machines and engines, Vallo sheep dips, Michelin tyres and rubber foods, Larney's Sonjel; sheep drench, and aimer's calf meal. The F.A.C. has established a saddler/ and leather depart-, ment, and all the latter goods that will be on exhibit have been manufactured on the F.A.C. premises. In fact, farmers and others are at all times welcome to come and seo these leather orders executed by the F.A.C. workmen, and satisfaction is guaranteed. It is a well-knowet fact that the F.A-C. is truly a co-opera- , tive company, owned by farmers, coiatrolled by a directoral of farmer-business men and run solely in the interests of fanners. Therefore every visitor to Hamilton this week should make a point of, seeing the / company's goods, as they ars represented on thair stand at the -show.

I C. L- INNES AND CO., LTD". PEERLESS ALE AND STOUT. One of the oldest established and best; known firms in Hamilton ia that cf Messrs. 0. L. Innes and Co., Ltd., brewers and mineral water manufacturers. They are the only brewers to the Waikato, and they sei-ve a very large district with their high-class productions. Their PeerJess ale and stout enjoy a great reputation for being pure and wholesome beverages. Tbore are always 5000 dozen bottles in stock, 1(3 that customers can rely upon obtaining an article which ia thoroughly matured.. The water used in the manufacture of the beer and mineral waters ia drawn from an 'artesian bore 400 feet deep, and as the sapply is always cool and pure the manufactured article ia always in the best condition. A large variety of mineral waters are manufactured at Hamilton, also at the arm's branches at Te Kuiti and Taumaruj Eiui. and these can be supplied either in I bottles or in stone jars. Very extensive alterations have recently been carried out to the Hamilton brewery. These wlil have the effect of enabling the firm to carry a much larger stock and to manufacture under more ideal conditions than in the past. The latest Shield's aerating bottling machine—the first in New Zealand —has just been installed, and this will enable a more uniform brand of aerated water to be manufactured. This is really a most remarkable Little machine, as it fills and crowns a bottle with one operation, enabling two men to do what in the T)ast four men had to do. This ia only one instance which shows how alive the firm is to keep abreast with the times in providing up-to-date machinery, which will reduce the cost and produce a better article. In the bast of the summer, people naturally require cool, refreshing Liquids, and those who have not yet sampled the well-known products of Innes and Co., should make a point of piacine a trial order vrith them. The alterations also include the installation of an electric power and ice-making olant, in order to keep the stock at a uniform temperature. It has always been the firm's ideal that quality must come first, and the ever-increasing sales are striking evidence that the firm's policy in this direction is appreciated by an extremely large clientele. Ale, stout, or mineral waters can be sent any distance, and as the Szm makes a feature of quick despatch of orders, customers can rely upon receiving their goods with a , minimum of delay. The firm has recently purchased the Wai-aroha mineral water springs at Te Aroha and is novr in a position to supply tbees famous waters.
