The hour was late and the Short- ■ land hotels wero closed. But the guardians of tho peace wero on tho alert. Suddenly a dark form, emerged, and the watchers caught, their breaths expectantly. Nearer and nearer the suspected one approachod until ho was seized Ly the aforesaid guardians. "What do you here?" the culprit was asked, as tho constables peered into, the frightened face of a Maori. " Dis my house—yes; by korry'l leefe hero bleof mo!" And as ho spoke ho put his hand behind his back. "Aha, mo foine man," said the guardian, "an' pwhat havo wo, here? Show it us!" ''Plees, I go for the missi?, are," was the response. <! That won't,do for us," he was told ; "'tis beer yo have; out with it." " No peer, bleef mo ? by korry, I not tell to lie. My missis she say "•— "Never mind what tho missis said; have ye the bottla ?" "Yes, I got to bottle; oli yes." " Woll, hand it over!" And when tho Maori pulled out a baby's bottle which be, dutiful father, had filled with' milk for the baby ; lho silence was so loud, tbat it was'heard at tho Miranda.—Thames Star.
"Tho entry of professionalism' is the wursfc tiling Onit could happen to :i spoi't," said Mr A. Campbell, at St. Junios' Football Club's smoke concert at Wellington on Thursday evening. Football in its pure state was not only tlie finest of games, but, like several other sports, an excellent training for life's battles. With the advent of playing for money all this vanished, rough and underhand play became far more tho rule than the exception, the support of the public was lo3t, and instead of having hundreds of younger player?, thoy would have thousands of "hoodlums" cheering men to whom the word "sport" was but a by-word and a mockery. Ho hoped that' when the professional players returned from tho Old Country tho New Zealand Rugby Union would remain linn and not i' whitewash '' them.
One often hoars tiio expression " My child eaiight a severe cold which developed into diphtheria," when the truth was that the cold had simply left the little one particularly susceptible to the diphtheria germ. When Chamberlain's Cough, Kerned y js given, it not only cures the cold, but greatly lessens the danger of diphtheria or any germ disease being contracted. There is no danger in giving th# remedy as it contains no opium or other harmful drug. For nata by all chemists And storekeepers.
Speaking in conuectirn with truancy cases, which en roe before tho Chviglchurc'li Com t,'Mr V. Gr. Day, S.M., remarked that it would bo far more' satisfactory it (he Education Board wore allowed to' demand the appearance of truant children before the Court, instead of summoning only the parents, as was* tho custom at present. The cases would, of course, bo heard before the Juvenile Court, and tho Magistrate would bo enabled to severely admonish truant children for not attending school. This would have a deterrent effect, and would be far more effective than the present system of holding the. parents alone responsible. ■
" If you were to fire a gun down Lambton Quay," said Mr Bakowell-at the Otago High School re union the other night, "you could hardly avoid hitting an educational export. One man will tell you that everything depends on what is taught, another on how it is taught, but I tell you that everything depends on who it is wboteach.es, Tho teacher.is everything. The spirit of Arnold of Rugby has stamped itself on school life for all time."
1 One thing which struck a recent visitor to London from Wellington was the fact, he says, that he was able when at Home to obtain Now Zealand poultry of superior quality to that which is sold in the dominion, and at prices below what are ruling in this country. There is no doubt, he asserts, that the bast birds are sent" Home, and it is strange that they'can' be sold at a profit at rates below those prevailing in New Zealand. Mr W. Daniels, Temora, N.S.W , says : —''Some six mouths ago I was very ill fur nearly a week with colic pains, suffering great agony. Speaking to Mr Eigney, one of our local chemists, about it, he said he had a good remedy for such complaints. Leaving me. for a few minutes lie returned with a botilo o? Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera, and Diarrhoea Remedy. A ftor tho first dose I felt relief, and in less than 2t hours was completely cured. My daughter has also durirg the last few month.3 been similarly attacked, but a dose of .Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera, «and j Diarrhoea Remedy soon put her right. lam now never without it in the house, and. make a point of reoraraendirij? it to my friends." Fpr sale by all chemists and storekeeper's.
Tho female telegraphists in Denmark havo now the duty of pole climbiog added to their labours. A number of ihem recently struck-work dennnding higher salaries and treatment equal to the men. The Government made tho curious reply that these demands would be granted on condition that their work 'should bo equal to that of the male operators, who in cases of emergency were called out to work on tho -lino. The young ■women agreed, and several have-sinea been employed in climbing telegraph poles'to repair brokon wiros.
Present indications (says tho Poverty l>.iy Tier-aid) respecting the forthcoming frozen moat season are that killing operations on an extensive scnlo will commonca f lirly lato this year. The chiof ciuso operating in this direction, is tho present steady demand for stock in congequenoo of the large areas coming into occupation, whilst tha supply of stock for eating down is limited to that, raised in tho .listriufc. crisequontly iVraera are fiadinr it more profitable to breed for this purpose than fattening. ■Thpro is also reported, to bo a g)od market at Auckland just now, whose all tho'surplus snoop for tho next six weeks will probably find their way;
Fit and style guaranteed. Give your ordors for summer suits to E. H. Andrews, fashionable tailor, Nor manby Road. Paoroa. — Advt.
At Christchurch, responding ou behalf of Her Excellency to tlio toast; of her health, Colonel Davies, InspectorGeneral of the Now Zealand Forces, eaid that Lady Plunket's action in so prominently associating herself with the volunteer movement would have a far reaching effect. He pointed out that Groat Britain and America were the only nations which had not .adopted a system of universal service, and that Britain had never-met in warfare any other nation since those nations had adopted that system. Universal service meant that the jflovver of the nation would Be the soldiers, not the weeds. Only tho fittest and best rasn would be picked, and it would bo regarded as a misfortune or a disgrace to be refused. Universal service did not mean conscription. Ho appealed to the ladies of the district to uso their influence, as Her Excellency had done,' in the direction of encouraging universal military training.
Ono of tho principal cigar manufacturers of Havana has lately been making some enormous cigars which measure l§in long and Gin in circumference. They are not very heavy, as they weigh only about 4oz, but they cost a sovereign a piece in Havana and £120 a hundred in London.
