(United Press Association-^Oopyrigbt.)

'United Press Association—Copyright.) Received April 18, 4.30 p.m LONDON, April 18 Admiral Colomb, in a letter to Mr Arthur Henderson, dealing with the Labour Party's communication to Australia, says the Dreadnoughts are overrated. He approves of the suggestion that the colonial contributions should be on business lines, and not be determined by waves of impulse. He fears that the Admiralty organisation is defective compared with Germany.

To the Editor.
on this question. We have always held that it would be a dangerous experiment to disturb existing trade for the sake of a holiday, in the hope that it would be "all the same in the end." Now we have the experience of Nelson to guide us, and we find it is by no means "all the same in the en\i." We sent letters to a number of Nelson shopkeepers asking for their experience of Saturday. We have replies which tell of lost trade, diminished receipts, and in one case reduction of staff. A precis of these replies will shortly be published. The advocates of Saturday always assure us in a confident manner that there will be just as much trade done as .ever, but it will be more evenly distributed through the week. That is not the Nelson experience. One of our correspondents says that his trade fell off by a half, largely owing to the loss of country trade. He says that the country people would not come to town on Friday, but got their supplies from country stores and hawkers. In th© present time of depression and scarcity of money it seems to us almost suicidal for the town to make a violent change, which must inevitably disturb existing trade for a time, whatever the ultimate result might be. The first loss would of course fall on the shopkeepers, but tlie effects would soon fall on others. We are, etc., ■H. I. JONES AND SON, LTD.

Kiida, timber laden, wa staken in tow by tho lighter Thistle, on her retura 1 rcm taking a load of meat, to the Indralema. All went well till the bar had been crossed, when the Thistle took the ground and came to a stancU still. The St. Kilda continued on her way and things became exciting, as a collision seemed imminent. Fortunately, however, this did not occur, but the barquentine went ashore on the South Spit. Efforts to pull her off proved unsuccessful yesterday, but it is hoped that she will bo refloated to-day. At time-of the accident three steamers were cominsc down the river, and the sound of their sirens and the sight of bine lights shown by the St. Kilda created considerable excitement.

WHY is SANDER AND SONS' EUCALYPTI EXTRACT superior to any -other Eucalyptus produce? Because it is always safe, reliable, and effective, and the. dangers attending the use of a special and careful manufacture. It is the result of full experience, and of crude preparations which are now palmed off as " Extracts " are avoided. A death was recently reported from the internal use of such a concoction, and in an action at law a sworn witness testified that he suffered the most cruel irritation from the application to ulcer of a product which was sold as "just /&s cood na SANDER'S EUCAI.YPTT -/EXTRACT." Therefore beware of such "deception. Insist upon the prepraration which was proved by experts at the Supreme Court of Victoria and by numerous authorities during the past So years, to be a preparation of genuine merit, viz., THE GENUINE SANDER AND SONS' PURE VOLATILE EUCALYPTI EXTRACT.
