We have received a letter from Hamiora Mangakahia, of ', Whangapoua, Auckland, but owing to its length we are com- pelled to hold it over for the present.

Ihaka Tamihana, of Nuhaka., East Coast, desires us to give notice that he has 5,000 6-ft. 6-in. and 7-ft. totara posts for sale.

In another column we publish a few proverbs supplied by Mr. G. H. Davies, who with the assistance of his friends in various parts of the island, collected a large number, which will from time to time appear in the Waka. These will no doubt, prove interesting to many of our readers, giving as they do a better insight into the every-day life of the Maori of olden time.
