SOME IMPRESSIONS OF A TRIP TO CASTLEPOINT. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Hutt Leader — 6 January 1939
SOME IMPRESSIONS OF A TRIP TO CASTLE- POINT.
At the north end of High Street, Masterton, a road turns to the right, the A.A. sign reading "Castlepoint, 43 miles." Wor the first few miles the roadway is sealed, and passes many prosper- ous looking dairy farms. When the first township, Taueru, 9 miles out is reached, the traveller seems to have left the cows, behind, and caught up with the sheep. From here, onwards, sheep-farming is the main industry. The road is very winding, and undulating, but in first-class order. The banks of (the numerous creeks have been liberally planted with willows and poplars. On the hillsides where the native bush has been burned off, or died out, plantations of exotic trees have taken its place. It looks slippery country in wet weather, and these willow and poplar plantings help to hold the ground on the hillsides and pre- vent scour of the creek banks. The yellow Kowhai is much in evi- dence, and the road, is overhung with the pretty yellow flowers...

His was a long and well-spent life; He had many graces, ; a sltTbiig faith, vigorous health, splendid intellect, spontaneous wit, forceful personality, wide human sympathy, courage, and understanding.
The Archbishop was born at Richmond in 1847, and became Bishop of Christehurch in 1890. At JIB he retired, hut ithia cmly meant that he shed the cloak of office, for he, continued to preach.
So great was his zeal for church education that he forfeited half his income and his life at Bishops-, court, the home of the Bishops of; Christehurch, and went to live a modest house in a suburb of his 1 cathedral city.
He was a mechanical genius, and delighted to repair clocks. Sometimes with the simplest tools, sometimes only with a hairpin and a penknife...
