Rivett, formerly, as he says himself, a sky pilot in the Esperance district, during which time he became one of the best known and most popular characters in the then sparsely populated dis trict. The references to recent outbreaks of fire in the Huon, as re ported in the 'Huon and Derwent Times,' served to remind Mr Rivett of an experience he had himself up wards of half a century ago, and he thus refers to it: — 'Your account of the Esperance councillors and their experience with bush fires near Southport, brings to mind a lovely Sunday in the same neighbourhood, under similar con-, ditions, only away back in the early eighties. The writer had left the home of the Hays at Hastings, after the usual sumptuous repast, for ser vice at Southport, but, against the sane advice of the one -and only 'John Hay Secundus.'...

Harris' said that facilities for swimming in New Norfolk were very poor. . .There is a. pool for chil dren on the. Derwent Esplanad.e, only fit for paddling, except at high tide, at low tide there being 'only about six inches of water. ' He suggested the section under the' regatta pavil ion as a suitable place for beginners, and it is hoped to have the bottom cleared of stones and have the sec tion fenced off. It is very regrettable that there is no life saving appliances available in the township. Some time ago a small boy wa drowned only a few yards from the shore, and had there been a lifebuoy and line, probably his life, would have been saved: The club propose to purchase a life sav ing reel and line. The Warden has promised to assist in every way, and he is sure the council will support the club, which will be a great benefit to...
