HBH 1892 May 17 General
A new pest is making its appearance among the chrysanthemums in the WANGANUI District. It is of the nature of mildew, and kills all garden flowers and plants when it attacks. There is as yet no known remedy for it. Sir James HECTOR has sent to America for information as the treatment of it, as it is supposed to be an introduction from that country.
CLIVE correspondent reports under yesterday's date:- The great part of the township of CLIVE was under water last night. The Tuki Tuki River broke over its banks during the afternoon, and a great body of water spread over the flats in about the fastest time on record. The water was at its height at about 11 o'clock, and from that time it has been gradually subsiding.
