MONEY TO LE^D, OHT^ ha re large sums of MONEY Wv to LEND, in amounts to soil; Borrower*, at Lowest current Rates. ADAM* & KINGDON, Btirißterß, Soiicitore & Notaries Pa lia ,

Personal.— Mr E. G. Stapp, of the local Post Office staff, proceeds to Wellington today en route to join the Warrimoo as assistant mail agent. We trust that Mr Stapp will have a pleasant trip. Personal. — We are sorry to learn that Mr Glen has been seriously ill since he was in town on Thursday last. At one time so bad was his condition that two medical men were in attendance. The latest report, however, tells that Mr Glen is improving, and we hope that complete recovery will not be delayed Oddfellows' Band. — The Drum and Fife Band which is composed of Juvenile Oddfellows, who have been under the training of Bandmaster Robertson for some little time past, proceeded for a march out last night, and acquitted themselves very creditably. Dance, — A dance will be held in the Reehabite Hall to-morrow evening, commencing at 7.30. Valedictory.— Mr D. Corrigan, who for some time past has been an officer of the Bank of New Zealand at Motueka, has been transferred to Timaru, for which place he sails to-day. Last evening he was entertained by a number of his friends at the Commercial Hotel, when the best of wishes were expressed for his future welfare. Mr Corrigan will be much missed in musical and athletic circles. Ma James Colvin.— On the 31st inst. Mr Colvin's term as a member of the Nelson Education Board expires, he having determined, io consequence of his many publio duties, not to seek re-election, consequently yesterday's meeting of the Board was the last at which Mr Colvin will appear, unless he seeks election at some future time. Mr Colvin proved a valuable member of the Board, his intimate acquaintance with West Coast matters having a peculiar value, but apart from this he brought to bear upon all matters before the Board for consideration a good stock of common-sense and a fair mind, and any suspicion that may have existed at the outset that Mr Colvin took his seat solely for the purpose of 'aiding the West Coast must have died early in view of the liberal spirit evinced by that gentleman in dealing with the needs of other districts: If, in Mr Bailie, the Coast sends as good a man as Mr Colvin, that part of the district will be well and worthily represented. Pobuo Works k Golden Bat.— ln the Takaka district a considerable amount of Government money will shortly be expended. For the Motupipi bridge a grant of £400 has been received, and plans are prepared, ! and tenders will shortly be invited. For I the road from Clifton to Pohara, £100 has been granted, and for the inland road from Takaka to Puramahoi, £250 has been granted, estimated to cover the construction of a couple of miles. The expenditure of the grant of £500 for river protection in the Takaka Valley will also commence as soon as a plan of action is decided upon. : The Prison. — The idea that the Nelson Prison was to be made a Police Gaol is ap-? parently a mistaken one, as the " Gazette " notifies that the local Police Station will be a Police Gaol. This looks as though the Prison was to be closed altogether, and, as prisoners cannot be kept at a Police Gaol longer than 30 days, the alternative will be to send anyone under committal, and unable to find bail, to Wellington. It is pretty certain, too, that the Police Station is not a, fit place to keep prisoners for 30 days, or anything like that time, and then there is the necessity to have a warder in attendance. Perhaps the better way would be toj make the Prison into the Police Station. ; Motupiko School Troubles. — In our report of the Education Board proceedings will be found a good deal about the evergreen Motupiko School troubles, and we hear that they will be further brought into prominence by proceedings in the law Courts. * i Entertainment. — The Wood Sunday School was well filled last evening, when Mr Kingsley kindly gave an entertainment in aid of the funds for building a class room. The selection from the lecturer's Nansen pictures were much appreciated,! and in an interesting chatty mode Mr 1
