Just a few miles from our mission, seven of their native missionaries were shot down, roasted, and eaten. The following Wednesday the missionary that has charge of this district came and removed his two native teachers, telling me that he did not consider it safe for them to remain, as there was a plot to kill everyone that wore calico, and that the Atchin people were the cause of it. We are now left alone with these people. We could not leave if we wanted to do so, as we have no boat by which to take passage.

THE LA.DY'S HACK. --4---. By E.F. (SeuEPPARTO.). Step it out, my eatin.coated Lady's hack, With your minane, by breezes flated. Streaming back, To the time of magpies singing, And the sound of hoof-beats tinging, Past the cattle slowly stringing Down the track. Fast from grim old Care I'm riding, While I feel you 'neath me striding; And I watch the tree-trunks gliding Grim end black : Over fallen logs we're rushing Thro' the hanging boughs we're brushing, Lady's hack. Flecked with foam from cars to quartcr, Lady's hack, Still your stride is none the shorter, Steed of black ; For the pace you would be making, And the lead you'd still be taking, Tho' your honest heart were breaking And your back. Bat our hot blood's all a-tingle, So I'll ease you o'er the shingle, That your girth and broad surcingle I mcy elack : While you toss your head and sidle, As you figet with your bridle, Till you make the bit-rings jingle, Lady's hack. With my sweetheart, in the show-ring, On your back, Soon t...

- ARDHONA-UNDERA RAILWAY. EXTENSIONS ASKED OF THE MINISTER. ' A DIFFERENT ASPECT ON THE QUESTION." A deputation, representing the fruit-growers of Ardmona, waited on the Minister for Iailways (MIr Mackinnon) on Tuesday afternoon, td ask for the contetruction of a spur line from Maroona to Ard mona, a distance of four and a half miles. It was pointed out by the deputation that soft fruit was often considerably damaged when it had to be carted to the railway station. If the line was con structed it would not only prevent such damage, but would also open up further areas for cultivation. Mr Mackinnon said that the construction of such a small line was more a matter for the muni. ciplities. The deputation should endeavor to see what could be done in that direction. A second deputation of settlers from Undera and Wyuna then waited on the Minister of Railways and asked, in the event of an ex tension being granted to Arhmona, that the line should be further extended to Wyuna.

The Violet Town Shire Council is again having trouble with the engineer, Mr Crowther, who now desires to act as engineer to Bright, in addition to his work at Violet Town. At the Council meeting, during or dinary business, Cr Wilson referred to the latter portion of the engineer's report, statiog that he had accepted the position of engineer at Bright. -This was not right as they were paying him a good salary, and he should be available at all times instead of being perhaps 100 miles away. They could not consider the Bright shire as private practice and if the engineer wanted to carry .on at Bright he should work Bright alone not try to do both Bright and Violet Town. The president did not see that they conld do anything. They had agreed to allow private practice, and he did not regard the engineer's action as other than taking on private practice. He would be only consulting engineer at B...
