The latest bone of conten- J tion was a tree, growing according to Lant, much too close to his study win dows, a tree which was, for Mrs. Merc- j dith, rich in tradition and history. ' Both her boys had elbnbed it times without- number. Maurice had built' himself a tiny Peter Pan house among the branches. Cecil had broken, his leg, ncarlj' his neck, ? pitching head long from its topmost boughs. And Lant wanted to cut it down. 'It isn't worth it,' she told him crisply. 'It can't matter much — just for six months. It isn't as though you were intending to stop here. I hate to have trees cut down.' He turned and gave her rather a pe culiar look.

Part of the Kangaroo's shipment was taken* on to Fremantle, and all that is necessary in the case of the Geraldton shipment is to wait for the certificate of the Fremantle quota. If there was any urgent immediate demand for supplies this formality could be expe dited, but as there is not, the shipment awaits the formal approval from Fre mantle in the usual manner.
