COFF'S HARBOUR, Tuesday  

For the future all the supplies for the South
Solitary Island Lighthouse are to be sent from
Coff's Harbour, owing to the bad bar at the  
Bellinger. Recently the lighthouse-keepers
and their families have had rather a bad time.


DORRIGO, Tuesday

A branch of the Bank of Australasia was
opened here this morning.

A branch of the City Bank was opened at
Ebor on Saturday.


GLEN INNES, Tuesday

About four months ago a new Public school
was erected at Moggs Swamp (near Glen In-
nes) but so far it has not been opened, owing
to the Education Department not supplying a
teacher.

In consequence of a complaint lodged by the
municipal council, two officers from the Postal
Department recently visited Glen Innes to
inquire into the inadequate accommodation
and staff at the post-office.
