*OUR LETTER BOX. (We do not necessarily identify ourselves with tl:e opinions expressed by corres pondents.) WATER SUPPLY FOR MORN INGTON.-* TO THE EDITOR. Sir,-It is gratifying to note that the Morniugton shire council is look ing serious'y into the question of a permanent water supply for the town. While some ratepayers miny think old methods are good enough, there cin be no dlubt that a permanent. supply of waiter would be a boon,, and its value to the place almost incalculable.

It would be pos-ible 'o keep gardens greon and attractive in the summer, andi much could be got out of the soil in the shape of vegetables, even oi the smallest plots, that cannot possibly be obtained under exi-ting conditions.

These teams met on Saturday on the ground of the former, who won comfortably on the first innings, and, in a measure, atoned for the "donkey-licking" the A team re- ceived at Hastings. Hastings batted first, but could only make 24 runs, no batsman scoring double figures. G. and D. Longmuir, did the bowling, getting 6 wickets for 13 runs, and the latter 3 for 10. Tyabb compiled 68, the only double figure score being 20 by T. Long- muir. Dan Hoban was the most &nbsp; successful bowler for the visitors, his puzzling underarm googlies getting for him 6 wickets for 27. Hastings knocked up 50 in their second inn- ings, the highest score being made by A. Haywood with 15. The Longmuir Bros. made their pre- sence felt again, by getting 5 for 24 and 4 for 8 respectively. In Tyabb's second innings, two reached doubles, viz., W. Denham 16, and G. Longmuir 14. Unfortunately, the bowling analysis was not kept as ...
