Mr Richard Pcarsc, son of Mr Diggory Pearsc, the well-known farmer, of Waitohi, expects to mako the trial flight of his monoplane in a very few days now. He has been working on the airship for a long time, and is confident that he has got over many difficulties. Tho frame is of bamboo, the wings of strong calico, and the motor is of 24 horse-power. The trial flight will bo made from a paddock which is in young wheat, but tho direction is not as yet been determined upon.

The "annual conference of the New Zealand Federated Builders' and Contractors' Association will be opened at : Chrisctkurch to-day. Apprentices will be the chief topic discussed (says Thursday's Wellington "Post"). It islicld by the building trade that the apprentice is a vanishing quantity, and that instead of a steady stream of tradesmen from Home it is more desirable to train up a larger number of apprentices to develop year by year into journeymen, thus rendering the influx of. tradesmen from.overseas unnecessary. •'-'"-Mrßenett was informed when in. Sydney that although much, lias been done there to solve the ap-i prontice problem, there are still not 7 enough lads being trained in.the bnjlding trades to provide for the future requirements of the country. The barque Hippolas, which brought a large consignment of timber, has greatly facilitated the progress of the : work at tho new wharf. Prior to the arrival of the Hippolas tho work was somewhat retarded for lack of material, but judging by the amount of timber now in the vicinity of tho wharf, ' "this state of' affairs is not likely to soon occur again. - Piles and beams cover quite a considerable area of the reclaimed' ground. Fully .£6OOO worth of-timber is now lying at the scene of ioperations, and with the present liberal supply of piles ,ctc., Mr Slowey has been able to provide employment fori" several new hands, and the spot during working hours presents an animated appearance. A considerable amount of work has to be don© upon each" pile in preparing it for use, in squaring the top, pointing and shoeing the lower end, and charring and tarring -the: ; greater part of the length, of each pile.. Gorse cuttings are used for the "charring and thus a ; use is found for one of the waste "products of,the farm."

A vcrv interesting tcrempny took place iu "Waimate on Sunday -afternoon when two invalid chairs and one couch were presented to the Waimate Hospital by the residents of Nukuroa, Waitaki village settlement/and AVa>bao natives. Ladies were tho moving spirit m tho movement which produced the presents, and Mcsdanies Lindsay, Duncan and Tau were specially mentioned as workers in the niatter, and the result is creditable to.all. One of tho chairs, a very ingenious contrivance, was manufactured by Mr W. Ji Wills, and the couch by Messrs A. S. Jones and Co., and Mr Sinelair (chairman of trustees) expressed Jsatfe--faction at'the way the work had beeii dune. 'There was a good .attendance of the public, the Waimate Brass- Band wore (as usual when required), in evidence. It was mentioned 'that Mr C Hendry of Blnecliffs had presented an invalid chair, now in use, and that to Mr Atwill tho trustees were \ indebted' for the flag then waving in the. breeze. ' ,Mr W. Lindsay, . acting for the presentation committee, made the presentation in a very happy manner, and expressed tho donors' thanks to the "tr'tistcVs and Dr Barclay, more especially the latter for the great assist- : ance'rendered in going into details as to'the'form oF'tho presents - and making Hheni as suitable to requirements as possible. Messrs Sinclair and Atwill anfl Dr Barclay briefly addressed 7 the' audience in appreciation of ' the kindness, 'and affection for. the local hKSpitaT, which' had prompted the gifts, and - a hearty vote of 'thanks was accorded the donors 'of all the items'mentioned.

Rather a neat.joke was worked off at the farewell gathering to Mr Moses White, last night', when the chairman called upon Mr Barkas for a song—"if Barkas was willing." Barkas was Avilling. As Oamaru observes the King's birthday holiday on the Bth inst., and Timaru on the 9th inst., it has been found impossible owing to the clnsh of holidays to play the tennis match, Oamaru v. Timaru. A daily motor service has been established between Culverden and Hanmer Springs by the Railway Department, and return tickets, good for three months, can be had from Timaru for £2 6s. On November 15th an election will bo held of members to the Council of New Zealand Accountants. Canterbury has the right to appoint three representatives, and one to represent South Canterbury lias been nominated —Mr A. Wilson, accountant to the C.F.C.A. It accountants here desire to have a local representative on the Council they can' do so by giving their united support to the local nominee. A meeting of the South Canterbury Boxing Association was held last night, when matters were discussed in .connection with the inter-club championship to be held on January 1 and 3-1910 at Timaru. Mr F. C. Watson presided, others prcscut, being Messrs It. J. Cooke, J. O'Donncll, G. Triggs, and F. Waddell (lion. secy.). It was decided to hold a boxing tournament on November .24 and 25 when some good local talent will be forthcoming. There will bo two contests of six rounds each in which Fitzsimroons will fight T. Brady, of Christchurch, and C, Stewart will fight Leckic. Among irther boxers to take part in the contests will bo' Kaill, of Bluff, Mitchell, of Lyttelton, Parott, of Lyttclton, and Gillespie, of, Tcmuka.

This evening Hairy Rickards' company will open with a first class Vaudevilo progrannno for one night only, which should be appreciated by tnc public. To-morrow evening the grand military display will bo given by local boys, with the Garrison Baud in attendance to play selections, and with a few special patho films to complete the programme. It should be safe to predict' a full hpuso. The.Patho pictures will be shown on Thursday, Friday an:l : Saturday, with tho usual matinee on Saturday afternoon. From November 4th to 22nd, there will be no visiting companies' here, and as nearly all local entertainments, except the Patho pictures are over, the public of Timaru will be givgn one evening a week at these. \ The programmes are tho same as shown in' the larger towns 1 , and all who have seen them speak highly of them and to the way the entertainments are conducted.

.:.: It will be, remembered that at the meeting of the Timaru Harbour Board on Friday last,' a, letter was received from Mr D. Stuart, referring members of the Borad to a report in the "Timaru Herald," of June 22nd, 1893, for a knowledge of the genesis of reclamation work at. Tiriiaru harbour. - This report is briefly, as follows:—"My object (D. Stuart, chairman) in bringing forward this report, is to ask your immediate. au3 earnest consideration of the following recommendation, namely '—That .instructions be given .to' our ''solicitors'to draft a Bill empoweririg' the Board to reclaim "(1) All that sea area of our 275 acre> Crown grant contained within a straight lino drawn from the southern "corner of section 1298 (Waimataitai) to the elbow of the north mole (say about 100 acres). And (2) All that area .of the inner harbour between the ln-cafcwatcr"and tho north : mole extending a of foiir chains to seaward of tho raihva property boundary line (say about ' six acres)." After a good deal of -discussion TMr Teschemaker moved the adoption, of the report, and that the npccssary steps be taken to give effect to it. The'motion was carried ncm con"

In. spite of the boisterous weather the ladies named who are interested in the work of the Timaru Arts and Craft Society met in the Technical School yesterday afternoon—Mesdames Priest, Smithson, Simmers, Lamb, Rockel, Greene, Burns, Misses Priest, Hooper, Blanche Hall, Cabot and Butterworth. Mr Grant, director of the Technical School, introduced the business of the meeting and he and Mr Green explained the nature of the exhibition which is intended to be held hero next May. Miss Priest (hon. sec. pro. torn.) reported that she had many promises,of help and already the names of more -.than.forty ladies have been Kivcn as members of the society ._ The following officers were then appointed: Mrs Smithson (in the chair), Misses Priest and Cabot (hon. secretaries), Mesdames Burns, Gladstone, Robinson, Rockel, Lamb, Newman,.Boys, Greene, Cowan; Priest, Hardwicke, Jameson, Loughnan, H. LeCren, E. A. LeCren, Misses Hooper, Hall .Drydeii. LeCren, Buttcrworth and Wilson (committee).

The ladles undertook to take charge of the loan collection, which will consist besides pictures, old China, glassware, statuary, old silver, curios, and brie a brae of all descriptions. The meeting was a most enthusiastic one and judging by the amount of . support already promised, the exhibition should prove to be by far the most interesting ever held in South Canterbury.

THE CAUSE OF CONSTIPATION. Tho most common cause of constipation is a lack of exercise to keep the muscles of the bowels active. That is why constipation is often brought on by too frequent use- of purgatives. They act violently performing the work of the bowels for them, and so weaken them that they will not act without assistance. Chamberlain's Tablets will euro constipation becauso instead of doing the work of tho bowels they gently stimulate them to voluntary action. Their frequent use will not injure tho most dedicate person. Sold everywhere... -•;'"-. Zymole Trokeys are handy -a carry and are invaluable to all VuO talk or 6ihg.

The Wellington Education Board adopted a recommendation from, the. Chief Inspector that all district high schools be required to adopt a course of "agricultural instruction." A "course" was laid for 34 hours, of which the following only bear immediately on agriculture:— Elementary physiology and anatomy of farm animals (boys) .household economy (girls), 1 hour; elementary physics (farm mechanics), 2 hours; agricultural scienco and rural economy, 3 hours; dairying (1 hour); total, 7 hours out of 34. Definite word was received yesterday that the team representing the Canterbury Lawn Tennis Association will break their journey at Timarn on Saturday next, on their way to play Otago at Dunedin on the Bth inst., and meet a team from the Timarn Tennis Club. Each team will consist of four ladies and four men, and play will start on the Elizabeth street courts at 11.30 a.m., and be kept going till 3.15 p.m. when the Canterbury representatives will pick up the second express and resume their journey south. The match, short as its duration will necessarily be, will consist principally of doubles play, should' be well worth seeing, and should give a worthy fillip to local tennis. For the Timarn club a te->m w ; ll bo chosen from the following—Mrs F. J. Rolleston, Miss Sotham, Miss C. Hay, Miss Blair, and Miss E. Miles; Pearse, Cameron, Thompson, Revel!, and Webster. It .is expected that members will do their very best _ to make this match thoroughly enjoyable.

The "New Zealand Times" ta.l'cs a North Island and a city view of the duty on flour. In an article on the rejection of Mr Hogg's Flour Duty Abolition Bill, it says:—"Apparently Mr Hogg could see no difference between tea and sugar duties —abolished by the Government—and the flour duty. •There is, however, a distinct cleavage. Tlie duty on tea was essentially a revenue duty. Tea is not produced in New Zealand, and never will be. Any duty imposed upon tea gos straight to the* Treasury. In the case of a. duty on flour only a fraction is received in revenue, .'and the millers themselves collect the penalty against imports with every ton of flour they sell to consumers. Belief in the theory that it is. the growers of wheat who receive protection by this duty accounts for its appearance on the Customs schedule. That this, is a delusion we believe to bo self-evident. New Zealand wheat is" actually being exported to markets other than our own. The farmer gets no benefit from this duty. He happens to think that ho does — and therein is to bo found the secret of expediency. The-people pay wv dearly to support him in tlie heresy ' At the meeting of tho Presbyterian General Assembly, in Christchurch, on Saturday, the report of the Fire Insurance Committee was presented by the Revi A. S. Morrison (Waimate). He stated that guarantees had been taken rip to ; the amount of £7775, and several other amounts had been promised. The decision of the Assembly on the overture of the Wellington Presbytery would make the total amount guaranteed nearly £IO,OOO. A good deal of inertia seemed to exist in tho Church with regard to the scheme, for many congregations and whole presbyteries had not responded at all to tho overtures made to them. Some.congregations had done admirably; Milton for instance, had guaranteed £775. Mr A. Bell, of Auckland seconded the, motion, and in order that-tho amount of tho . guarantees should reach tho siim of £IO,OOO aimed at, he suggested ■ that twenty-two persons should each give' a guarantee of £IOO. The suggestion was carried into effect and £5400 was guaranteed by those present. Tho report was adopted and the management, of the fund was transferred to. a central committee of three ministers and five laynien at Wellington. i Patrick O'Shea, the winner of Saturday's road race, is a resident of Sydenham, and is twenty years of ago. He is employed at Messrs H. Berry and; Co.'s; warehouse as a packer. He has/ never won a race previously. Interviewed just after the finish,-O'Shea said that he_ "had nothing tocomplain of." Tlie wind had been very strong, arid everyone had to plug hard all tho way. Tin's side of Rangitala O'Shea had a spill, and buckled his wheel badly; Ho lost some time in putting' it straight, and between Ashhurton and Rakaia he fell off again, but got through unhurt. Leonard Maw, of Dunedin. who finished second, had three spills, and was somewhat badly ont about the face and neck. Ho was leading the other isido- of Ashhurton. when another rider ran into him, and again at Selwyn he came down,_ while about four miles from the: finish ho fell over a counlo of riders. One wheel was very badly buckled, tho spokes sticking out all round. He pushed his machine' home with _ the wheel in" a very "groggy" condition and made a plucky finish. J. _ Arnst, who made the fastest time, said that he felt nrctty knocked up by the hard ride pnd head wind. He was left by himself for a long time ,and found it a tough ride. Two nunctures wcro picked up at Winchester, but ho effected repairs promntlv and went on against the wind, which proved moro trying as the goal was\ncarcd.
