NOT SENTIMENT, BUT FACT. If we had to part with all the beautiful flowers but one, wo would keop the rose, tho lovely English rose, and had we to part with all the delicious teas in the world but one, we would keep Rassakala, the Queen of teas.-r-ADVT.
A singular discovery has been made by Mr F. King, of the Exchange Hotel, Westport. A day or two ago (says the Westport paper) it was noticed that tho Small quantity of the sand at the bottom of the bucket used in scrubbing out the bar contained gold. Since then he has panned off the sweepings of the bar, and can always get a nice prospect of fino gold. Probably other householders will have a similar experience. If bo, it would go to show that the gravel of which the streets are formed is auriferous. Old residents on this coast will regret to hear of a fatal accident which befell Harirota Hinemura (Mrs Eyes) a few days ago. She was travelling with Mr Baylis in his express, and when near the Punehu Dairy Factory tho front axlo snapped as the express was descending the steep hill in that locality. Mrs Eyes was thrown on to the horses, which plunged and reared madly till they came in contact with Mr John Stevenson's dray. Mrs Eyes' hair, of which she had a great profusion, somehow became entangled iv the wheel, and she was literally scalped. Dr Pairman was at once sent for, but he could do very little to alleviate her sufferings, and she died the ; day following. No one along the coast i was more hospitable to the belated traveller, when houses were few and wild pigs were many, than Harirota Hinemura (as her own people always called her), who was a most hospitable and generously disposed woman. Those who knew her before the European j settlement of the Waimato Plains, will remember her kindly aud hearty greeting and her generous welcome at all times. Mr Eyes will have the hearty sympathy of many old friends who remember Mb and his kindly wife's many good actions in days gone by.— Hawera Poßt.
