Eltham was again stirring and lively on Saturday afternoon on account of members of the working bee again turn ing up to comnplete their work, and al though the inclemency of the weather prevented: several from attending, yet still a fairnumber put in an appearance and worked cheerfully and willingly through mud and rain, the result of their afternoon's work was that they made and erected sixty-one tree guards-a total of ninety-seven for two afternoons.
