Of course lie cannot afford to get out a catalogue as thick as a Bible, but he can keep an advertisement in his local paper, "and see that it is change"!, thus keeping new bargains continual:/ befor the public. »le should also have a mailing list, and send out a circular letter at feast once a month.

In another column of this issue reference is made in our report of the Progress Association to a discussion anent establishing a Fire Brigade in ourmidsf. This is a matter which' affc c':s the whole of our townspeople in no uncertain degree, and one which should be taken in hand whole heartedly and a^)nce without a dissentient voice. The water,' which was laid on recently, is a progressive move. The next, and, undoubtedly a sequel tc same, should be the formation of a Fire Brigade. We understand that the Country Fire Brigades' Board will not take the initiative, neither will that body make any move whatsoever until such time as a Brigade has been organised and placed on a firm footing. Among other preliminaries, first and foremost, the rating of prop erties within the- fire area must "be forwarded to the Board for their guidance in making clairtis on'the Shire Council, the Fire Insurance Companies and Gov ern...
