RIDDELL o (From Our Own CorresDrindenfc.1 iHieadiay. The grand final match of the Riddell District Association, between Woodend and Riddell, was played at Woodend on Saturday last. Although the weather was intensely cold, there was a huge attendance. The game again proved evert, although by the scores it would appear that Woodend had an easy vic tory ; but this was not so. The result was obtained by fortunate kicking1 for goals, in which the luck lay with Wood end. , Riddell had the bail more times past the posts, but on the wrong side. For a final game there was no dashing spirit or strenuous effort shown by either side. Curtis was central um >ire, and proved strict and impartial, The scores were, at the final bell, Woodend 4 goals 2 behinds, Riddell 2 goals 6 behinds. Much disappoint ment is expressed locally at Riddell's defeat, for it was confidently expected he local boys, having clone so well throughout the season, would gain the premiership. Still, the victory of Wood end ...

Haunted by a Rat. [Newspaper Article] — Gisborne Gazette — 4 September 1914
iiuuntml l»y ti Jlttt. A singular story, which the genius oi a Hoffman or a Poe might make ex tremely effective, is that of a man in Indiana who seems to have been haunted by,an evil spirit in the form of a rat— or at least that is. the . form , the idea would probably take in the Btory. Some twenty years since he was feed ing grain in a threshing machine when a rat ran across the floor of the barn where he was at work. He turned to watch it and allowed his hand to be drawn into the machine in hia absent mindedness. His hand was torn off, and he bas since been forced to make shift- with the remaining hand, which fortunately was the right. A few days since, so the story goes, he was feeding a threshing- machine in the same place, when again j a rat ran across the floor. Remembering the old accident, he vented his indignation in a violent kick at the animal, when / hia foot slipped, he lout- his balance, and in recovering himself he let, his right hand be drawn.into the machine, and i...

A SUGGESTION. To THE EDITOR OF THE GAZETTE. Sir, — War is sounding everywhere. The Gisborne women are perfecting them selves as nurses, and working for the wounded, and would it not be a good time for our men to get up an infantry of horse corps ? We have in our midst an imperial officer, who is willing to give his services to his country as of yore. Why not have a meeting at Power's &nbsp; Hotel on Monday and talk it over? I know two men wHo will be there. Yours, etc., B. ROSS-WATT.

RIDDELL Tuesday. [Newspaper Article] — Gisborne Gazette — 11 September 1914
RIDDEL.L (From Our Own Correspondent.) Tuesday.. The polling for the Federal elections here on Saturday last did not create any undue excitement, although the township had an animated aspect during the after noon, and the poll was a heavy one, ■ resulting in a two to one victory for Labour. As Eiddell is one of Labour's strongholds, the result • of the general election was a source of muck gratification here. It is marvellous how some people will acoount for, and ascribe, the reason for certain happenings. To-day (VVednesda) it is raining gloriously, and likely to continue, and be general. And there is news that the allied armies are gaining great victories. Both: these pleasant events a strong and local Laborite ascribes to the Labour Party being re turned to power. He says, 'Previously when that party was in power for three years, we had nothing but prosperity. Then an ungrateful people removed them, and trouble,^drought, and war appeared. .But all these are now to pass away.' Yer...

PATRIOTIC GATHERINGS. CONCERT AT KIDDELL. One of the largest and. most enthusiastic of audiences was assembled in the Mechanics' Hall, lliddell, on Friday evening last, at the patriotic concert. 1'he attendance was so large that many were unable to gain admission, and had to hear and see as best they could from the doors and windows. Mr J. F. Crow, who acted as chairman, explained the object of the gathering. Miss Hammett opened with a piano solo, " Battle March," . The school children contributed ably to the pro gramme in songs 'Gfrand Old Flag' and •ooldiers of the Xing,' and also assisted in ohoruses. Master Cr. Sexton recited a battle piece in good style, and Miss O'lieel'e gave a beautiful exhibition of club swinging. Miss L. Sutherland contributed 'The MarsellaiEe,' and Mr Walter Smith, in character, 'The Veteran' and 'Scarlet and Blue,' both being encoredr One of Mr Smith's songs contributed as an encore number was, we understand, the composition of a Itiddell lady.

MEAN CORRESPONDENCE TO THE EDITOE OF THE GAZETTE. i Mr,—It is only after much hesitation that [ I attempt to reply to the contemptible j letter which appeared in your l?st issue, i over a signature, the wording of which is a combination of insult to German intelli gence and of blasphemy. Your correspon dent meanly tries to make your readers infer that some pseudo German had a hand ;in inditing this offensive letter. Now whatever diUerences we may have with the German nation and people, we must all admit that they pre brave and intelligent—worthy to fight but not insult. Thoy may be im petuous and outspoken (which is no guilt), Bad nune would stoop to write such a sneak ing "stab in the daris ' sort of letter which has appeared The man who indited such was not the actual-writer, and the former is ; not fit to associate with honest and respect able German residents amongst us.

When the timo will come to" re adjust boundaries, there is one small community in northern Europe whose claim to autonomy should not be ignored, though for over a cen tury they have been under the heel of the oppressor. The Czar, in a burst of gratitude for favours re ceived in the present war, and with a lively sense of favours to come in the near future, has decreed that the ancient Kingdom of Poland shall be restored. While the civilised world will toe pleased to learn that the nightmare of oppression in Poland is drawing to an end, the (Jzar will have an opportunity of performing another act of justice by relaxing permanently the cruel and unjust laws under which the people of Fin land are suffering at the present time.
