Miss Thorp, who was a very popular young lady here, received very handsome presents, i among which was a very pretty j silver cake stand, presented to her by the members of the choir and parishioners of her church, with whom she was a very ener getic worker.

DREDGING THE HUON. A DIFFERENCE of opinion_ap p.cax3~ to ^fc o ' 'existent' concerning' the conditions which govern the £300 voted by Parliament for tTIo dredging of the Huon River. Not a few persons have ' ex pressed the belief that the money was granted unconditionally, but a letter that has been forwarded to tho Huon Municipal Council shows that such was not the case, but that a very definite condition is imposed.

In view of this circum stance the Minister advises the Council to take steps to either in duce the. Marine Board t o alter itsdecision, or get the local people to find a sum equivalent to that voted by Parliament. He further p...
