When he could got a cheap lot of land anywhere near Wellington where the tram fares would not make the rent too high he would be ready to buy it for workmen's homes. Recently when he wanted a parcel of land at Kilbirnie he had been asked £43,000 for, he could not afford to give it.—Hon Mr Millar. I have seen milk supplied in Wellington that would mean .sudden death to any infant of a month old to whom it was given.—Hon Mr Marshall. 4- ♦ If proper milk were supplied it would certainly reduce the great waste of infant life now taking place. Wo arc losing one in every fifteen legitimate children born. —Hon. MiMarshal 1I have never been able to understand why a progressive Government like ours, which looks after the health of the animal life of the country, appoints veterinary surgeons to attend to illness affecting horses, and cattle, dogs, etc., and does this all free of cost to the farmer, yet fails to give medical advice to the human beings. . . The colony should be divided into medical districts, and a medical man appointed to each district, his duty being to do nothing else than attend to the people within that district.—Hon. Mr Macdonald. ■s" It is a good thing for the growing youth and young men of the colony that their whole soul should be bound up in the fate of a football match. If you want to see the. cause of this growing rage for football, go and stand outside a newspaper office on a Saturday evening.—Hon. Mr Macdonald.j Methylated spirits are being largely sold to drug and other stores, and I am certain—as far as I can gather —it is being sold for the adulteration of whisky and other liquors. . . The importation has increased to 70,000 gallons, and that quantity cannot be used in manufactures in the colony.—Hon. Mr Millar. ■4* The more intellectual we endeavour to make our women, the more they become cultured, the more highly we civilise them and endeavour to bring them up to a high standard, the more we seem to render it impossible for them to become child-bearers. That is a curious fact. —Hon. Mr Macdonald.
