Can you say the sarue with regard to a milking machine? TJuless you have special knowledge of Milking 1 Machines, you can- only make yourself eai'e by selecting the atucliine that has been thoroughly tested by a number of your neighbours for two or more years. The " L.K.G." is the first and only machine tLat can show you this reasonable evidence before you buy. MeEwan and Co., Ltd, sole agents, Fort Street, Auckland.

Daughters of Boor farmers in the Transvaal and Orango River Colony make no secret of their preference for British suitors.

In fighting a bad influenza epidemic among the Taranaki Maoris, Dr PomuvQ, Health Officer tq this people, has not had-much assistance from the Nalivos (says Tho Dominion). The Maori is a light-hearted child of Nature, who doos not trouble till it troubles him with great ■ severity. Influenza, followed by pneumonia, has been troubling him to death in many cases air&long the west coast of this island, and still tho Health Officer finds it hard to convince other Maoris that influenza is an enemy to bo respected. When a Native, gripped by the complaint aud hot with" fever, rushes into the sea or nearest river for relief, the end is as sure as that of drowning. Yet this has happened in a great many oases. One youthful, stalwart fellow in Taranski, who was prostrated by the disease, was told by Dr Pomare that if he went outside the wharehe would meet his death. He promised not to go outside, but the next day, a frosty morning, found him out in the cold, air..- He died the following day. " I am quite certain that if he had looked after himself he would have pulled through all right," Dr Pomare declared emphatically. "He had youth, strength, and everything iv his favour." At the same time the Maoris are more amenable to advice than was the caso some years ago, ani the" mortality from influenza, though considerable, h not 'equal to that which has boon caused by other diseases in tho past.
