' Another kind of torch is mado by enclosing a string of oandle nuts in tho ribs of the palm frond and binding the whole togother with strips of the loaf. Fish aro very plontifu', and the natives protty expert at batohing thorn ; but aocording to the experience of those who have been thore the natives will very seldom take the trouble of bringing the fish in.

The route lies through,, a very pretty district, dotted with well cultivated fields and picturesque .orchards, through whioh tho river winds like a silver thread. . On oithor side are broken ranges, forming a striking contrast to tho prime and neat appoaranco of tho landscapo they surround.

Thus, for instance, thoy will not compare 'with the Great Wairua Falls we illustrated a short time back, but in point of beauty thoy much oxcol them, and no tourist in the district should omit to pay them a visit.
