Yarra Glen. FAREWELL &-PRESENTATION, (FROM A CORRESPONDENT.) On the night of May 11 a thorough ly representative gathering met in the spacious dining-room of the Grand Hotel for the purpose of bidding fare well to Mr Robert Gordon Todd, late of "Lubra Bend." Mr Todd, whose health during the last six months has been the cause of much grave anxiety to his friends, is leaving the district in accordance with the orders of his medical adviser. The affair, as is us ually the case, was got up at very short notice, and no more practical warrant of the popularity of the guest of the evening was needed than the sponta neous mannerin which friends from all the surrounding districts gathered round the table to do him honour. And rightly so, for there is no branch of sport which has not benefited'by i M1r. Todd's moral and practical help, during his long residence at Lubra Bend. Generous to a fault, he has been ever ready to assist everyone and every thing, yet in so unostentatious a man...

The Chineso e in ay er?? nost frugal people, who w1mze nothing, sad numerous things which :;t consids'r. un.worthy of con siderntion are tarned to good use by the th-i:ty Chinese. In the months of May and June women and children are to be seen in the streets and marketplaces gather ing up discarded peach-stones. Peach-stones have several uses. Broken into pieces and dried in the sun they will furnish good fuel. But the kernel, which has a good market value, is sold to the native druggist for making medicine. Another prontaS?h use of the peach stones is selling them to native art ists or engravers, who carve them into different for?- of animals. Some of the larger stones, however, if sound enough, are carved into fine finger rings.

A large and influential deputation waited on Mr :Clapp (Chief Railways Commissioner) on Wednesday, to ask for a reduction in the suburban: rail way fares. A' nuniber of municipal bodies were represented, among others being Hawthorn, Footscray, Whittlesea and Brighton. After listening patiently for about one hour to the various delegates, Mr Clapp refused to entertain any altera tion. He said he eould not do so and balance the ledger. He explained how the apparent surplus was swallowed up by' other charges ; that with the heavy interest charges the railways have to meet he could not see his way to jeo pardize the income. Loans matnring that were 3/ per cent. now carried an increase from Iz4 to 2 per cent. on re newal. He was sorry, but he could not do as requested unless the Gov ernment made the interest on the loans a national charge. Mr O Snowball, M.L.A., introduc ed the depntation.
