(To the Editor.) 1 Sir,—(Please allow me, through your I columns, to draw attention to the in 1. consistency of tlie leading members of I the local Progress Association. If my I memory serves me correctly the secre I tary of this association a while ago | gained first honors for an essay on the I beautiflcation of Warracknabeal. One 1 strong and convincing clause of this 1 essay was a suggestion to abolish the 1 hideous and disreputable hoarding 1 board in the centre of the town, as It 1 was an eeysore, and did not add to the 1 attractiveness of the main street. Des 1 pite this condemnation, the associa i tion has now added to that eyesore I more hideous hoardings, advertising I the approaching carnival. I presume I a portion of the proceeds will go to I wards the abolition of this nightmare. —Yours, etc., CONSISTENCY.
