The Nelson Garrison Band will give a concert in the Botanical Reserve next Sunday afternoon. Tho new King's head stamps of all- denominations up to and including one shilling, but excluding lid and 2jrd, are now being sold at the principal post offices throughout the Dominion. By a curious coincidence the gas in one of the Geraldine churches went out as the hymn "Lead Kindly Light was being sung the other Sunday evening. Which reminds an exchange of the incident (perfectly true) of the man walking out of Exeter Cathedral with his pipe pocket ou fire as the" ohoir was singing "Sometimes a Light Surprises." A majority of the Nelson. Licensing Committee has refused to grunt a conditional license at the forthcoming A. and P. Show. Elected members were circularised and asked to express an opinion on tho question, and it is understood that only one favoured the application.

Association's Show, to be held on Tuesday and Wednesday, November 23rd and 24th, close with the secretary (Mr J. Glen) to-morrow.

Mrs Wads- j uorth had just removed a boiler iuli • of clothes from the fire, which was ! out in the open, when the child by ; some means fell backwards across the ; vessel. The whole of its back was ra- I ther badly scalded. Had the child ; fell lengthwise in the boiler, no doubt the result would have been much more serious. Dr Fearless was sent for, and was soon in attendance. Tho little sufferer was considerably relieved by treatment received, and is now ; progressing as well as can be expected under the circumstances. j i Messrs G. G. and S. H. Wearing, j of Richmond, notify in another col- ; umu that they have purchased tho J grocery and general store business, I which has been carried on up to the j present by Mr W.

At- the half yearly meeting of the ■ Canterbury United District of the Foresters held the other day, the | matter of establishing a Subsidiary i Court was considered, and several let- J ters were received from Nelson, Taranaki, Timaru, etc., relating to ; it. It was agreed to allow the matter to stand over for further development. Attention was called to the I proposed visit of Mr Will Crooks (English M.P.), a member of the ():■- --dor. It was resolved to extend to him an invitation to meet the district officers and some of the brethren when in Christchurch.
