There are some people who never
have idle moments, it is an impossi
bility with them. Dr. and Mrs. AY.
B. McAllister belong to this connec
tion. Their idle moments arc taken
up by work known as Kensington
embroidery. Our reporter happen
ed in the Doctor's this morning and
was shown some of this beautiful
work recently completed. First was
a lambrequin of old gold ground
with a bunch of thistles and snow
balls worked in the centre, the whole
being edged with a rich fringe. The
thistles and snowballs look so real
that one is almost tempted to pluck
them. The finest silk is used in
working these designs. Another
beautiful thing was a table scarf.
This hangs over a centre table, and
at one end is a bunch of variegated
lilies most exquisitely worked by the
Doctor himself, while the other end
has a bunch of wild roses, the work
ing of which shows how perfect
Mrs. McAllister is in the art. The
last-named has quite a class of
pupils, who are beginning to show
proficiency. Mrs. McAllister will
visit the Coast shortly and return
with material and other necessaries,
so as to conduct this esthetic occupa

window, n sample of grapes and
peaches. Ou making enquiries we
found that Mr. Wolfe raised them
at his residence, Piikoi Street. He
has thore about two and three
quarter acres of land which is given
up to raising fruits, vegetables, etc.
In grapes, he has twenty-four dif
ferent varieties, and this season ex
pects to get off about 1,200 pounds
of fruit. He has forty peach trees
not quite three years old, and has
already got a quantity of fruit from
them, some of which was in the
store window. They are small but
not bad by any means. A nice crop
of watermelons will be ready very
soon. Besides these there arc grow
ing nutmeg and cinnamon trees,
lemons, limes, and oranges of four
different "kinds. Next year Mr.
AVolfe intends to use the land for
grape cultivation exclusively.
Grapes and peaches can be found on
