BY THE WAY. NEW YEAR CELEBRATIONS. From various quarters one hears that the. old custom of publicly bringing in tlfe New Year is quickly dying out. For as long as old people can -remember, crowds gathered at the Cross or the post office on New Year's Eve for midnight -to strike, then broke into loud cheering, sang a verse or two of "Auld Lang Syne,"-shook hands all round, then went off home, or if they were.Scotclt they made -a round of visits among their friends, "first-footing." In thle latter case- there was a bottle of 'whisky in the pocket and a glassiquite innocent of standing capacity. Whether this was symbolic, rumour has not-said. -Nowa days people prefer to be asleep in their beds when the old year goes and tht. new' year enters - They see nothing to rejoice about- in the fact that..they-are i year older,.and as forthbe good wishes, theseA re -taken nas .'re.i d .s. ,r? ,a. lieoil? whon-either?.take'- is itbues sadly nor our sorrows tboseriously'.

It is easily- recognised-a portion of the skin is seen to bered and inflamed and becomes stifft with numerous small pimples and puapules. The scurf-skin peels off, and a watery exudation, sometimes mixed with a little blood. comes out. The:exudation dries into crusts on thie skin (it will stiffen linen the saie is s starch does): There is Consilderabte itching, whiich is made worse by rubbing.: There is anll al tuosl irie-isliblt desire to scratch the atfected parts. The causes are very various, and they include irritation of the skit from any cause (such as ex cessive heat), or obstructlons-of the circtulations of the veins.

to the'Editor. Sir.-- was ple?ised to read M?r. T.: White's letter in defence of the directors' action in reference to the appointment of the secretary of tile Cool Stores, and note he would like mle to comle straight to tile point re salmle. I contend that efficiency should be the plrincipal .consideration when filling the \vacancy of suchI a posi tion. -With all due respect to MAr. .Murray. I fear ithat his past ex perience in that class of work has been very limited. I note Mr. \White has not touched on what grounds the anointmoent was. tmade, possibly for sentimenttal reasons, and on ac count of his public services. - If such is the case, 1 consider that they should confine the mixture of btlsiness and sentiment to their oewn private affairs, and not tile business of a public concern. Ant qulite aware of their right to appoint a secretary. and same was quite in order according to our rules.

-DISTRICT HIGH SCHOOL. COUNCIL TO LEVY SPECIAL RATE. The Shire Council. in its effort to secure a District High School, finds that it is not only necessary to pro vide the land (about ten acres) for the building, and playgrounds, but a sun of £1500 minst also be guaran teed by the residents before the Education: Departmtent will consider the matter. Cr. Mason, at -last week's meeting of the Frankston and HIastings Shire Council, moved that a special rate of 3d. in the £ be leried over the whole of, the shire, to provide the necessary money.
