THE SHORT ROAD. W IAMSTOWN COUNCIL . LOR'S OPINION. A discussion arose at the Williams town Council meeting last week over tenders for the supply of metal required for the Williamstown short road, which connects Port Melbourne with Williamstown, via the punt over the Yarra. This road is main tained by the Councils conjointly at an expense of about £600 per annum. The metal required, 1,500oo cubic yards, is tendered for by Port Melbourne, but before being accepted it is customary to submit the tender to Williamstown for confirmation.

One said it was a birch tree and the other an oak tree. They could not agree, so they called a gunner who was sitting near by and asked him if he could tell them what kind of tree it was. The gunner looked up and down the tree, walked all around it, drew his sword and began cutting it. The offi cers asked him what he meant by thia behaviour, when he looked up at them and answered; "I am trying to discover what kind of tree it is." Inspecting the gash he had made, with the air of a sage the gunner at length delivered his long expected ver diet: "'It's a wooden one, sirs!"
