We have to thank Mr E. B. Pilcher, local manager for the New Zeal antiinsurance Company for a neatly displayed wall calendar. The revenue for 1905 stands at £•153,366. Mr W. B. Scandrett has several houses to let, and a number of firstclass properties for sale ; also a snug little home and five acres at Myross Bush. Mr T. Ekensteen, near Messrs J. A. Mitchell and Co-’s sale yards, has a large' supply of ducks’ eggs for sale, and his shop is well stocked with all the latest lines in stationery, toys, and Xmas presents for young and old. The poor man in health is better off than the poor man in wealth. He will find that he can make a little money go a long way by purchasing his Xmas presents at A. Noble, and Co.’s, in Dee st. Employers of labour and those in search of work will please note that the Invercargill Labour Exchange is now located on the ground floor in the Arcade, and those in search of good, reliable workers should communicate at once. Ladies in search of helps for the holidays can be supplied on short notice. Messrs Lillicrap, McNaughton and Co. have a large stock G f Xmas cards and post cards, etc. on hand, and ask the public to shop early. The Philadelphia Novelty Co., in the Arcade, inserts a notice in reference to “Our Little Mistakes,’’ and ad. vise those in search of good, serviceable articles at moderate prices to pay a visit to their establishment, which is well-stocked with useful and seasonable goods. Mr H. A. Ladbrook tells the public that the art of giving good value for cash is practised at his Cycle and ’Phone Store, in Tay st. Mr T. W. Walker, Town Clerk, invites tenders for the supply of hose for the fire brigade. The N.Z. Railways have a notice in reference to Xmas and Xcw Year excursion rates. Mrs Holmes, corner of Tay and Kelvin streets, has now opened the new season’s stocks of presentation goods, etc. They are extromely pretty and useful. Full stocks of books and birthday goods are in stock. In fact the stock has been brought, right tip to line, and the prices are extremely low for the class of goods. The Westport Coal Company, Tay street, are in a position to supply the best of coal on short notice, their motto being punctuality, quick despatch, and net weight guaranteed. Messrs W. J. Lyon and Co., Bank of N.S.W. Buildings, have a very large stock of post cards on hand, and are in a position to supply the latest Xmas goods at the right prices. 5 The human mind and body can put up with hard work or privations, but can never accustom itself to worry. One of the best means of drivingworry out of the mind is an Edison Phonograph. Mr Hanson, of the Phonograph Agency Co., in the Arcade, has a lovely stock of machines and over 2000 records to select from. For a Xmas present, these little wonders are the best things that have come under our notice. For really first-class boots, shoes, etc., at the lowest possible prices, Messrs McConechy and Co., in the Arcade, lead the way. They did good business show week, and every customer was well satisfied. You can prove it by placing an order with the firm. For repairs they are not to be beaten, and if necessary, will do them while j’ou wait and listen to selections from Mr Hansen’s lovely phonographs across the Arcade. Just at present much talk D f potato growth and potato disease is in the air, and seeing that Southland growers have planted so largely this year, the risk of infection is of more than passing interest, while any means of preventing loss will receive their attention. It has been proved that spraying in the growing season both prevents the attack of blight and increases the crop, therefore every careful grower sprays. And just here let us remind readers that our local seed firm, Messrs Lonnie and Sons, whose extensive experience with potatoes enables them to speak authoritively on the point, advertise the celebrated Vermorol Knapsack Pump as the most efficient, together with blight and insect washes of easy and deadly application. If you are interested call on the firm for further particulars.
If you are on the look out for Xmas poultry, fresh butter, and vegetables, you should place an order with Mr S. Stewart, l a te of Stewart and Fawkner. He is now in occupation of premises, at the top of Tay street, in Mrs Atkinson's boardinghouse. All orders are promptly delivered, and he has on hand a large supply of poultry, etc. for the Xmas season. Mr Jas. Grant, hairdresser and tobacconist, is to be complimented on his enterprise in bringing his saloon and shop right into lino- with the leading colonial establishments. A few months ago Mr Grant decided on these alterations, and the public will be pleased to note that their comfort and attention has been studied in every particular. First of all the shop has been enlarged to meet the growing trade, and is now stocked with the very latest in smokers’ requisites and presentation goods. . Then the saloon h a s received special attention, and. the appointments and fittings have been carried out on an elaborate scale. The latest serilising plant has been added, and everything is scrupulously dean, leaving nothing to be desired by the most fastidious. Two chairs are continually going-, and under expert artists delays are reduced to a minimum. Mr Grant believes in advancing with the times, and considers his extension fully warranted by the liberal patron bestowed on him in the past. Well done, Mr Grant.
