SCRAPS. [Newspaper Article] — Gisborne Gazette — 6 February 1914

SCRAPS. ( " Milliner " is said to b° a corruption of " Miianer,'' eo-cr»lleu from Milan, in Italy, which at one time gave tho "law to Europa in all matters of taste, dregc, ana elegance. French people do not cele.brato tlieir birthdays ?.g we do. They hold what is called their name-daye. A wcir,an named Mary, for instance, would hold tho day in the year devoted to the Virgin Mary. Graenbaoks are notes issued by the United ' States Government, and are so called from the colour of their backs. The ciokname was given them by the American soldiero when Ihey were first issued in .1368. In mouDd-burial, the Scandinavians seem to hn.v«s placed tho dead in n oilting attitude —often, indeed, in chairs—like the N&sa mones and the Fingalian Celts. Yet another oustoiii was to bury carriages and horses along with a chief, so that he might make a proper entry intp Valhalla. The Turkish star and crescent is a curious relio of the old worship of the moon and Diana. This goddess was the anci...

THE INVENTOR OF THE RAILWAY TICKET. [Newspaper Article] — Gisborne Gazette — 6 February 1914

THE INVENTOR OF THE RAIL WAY TICKET. I Take a abeet of pasteboard as large as Hyde Parle, cut it up into slips an inch and a quarter wide and two and a quarter inches long, and you will have rather less than the aumber of railway tickets used in Great Britain during twelve months. 1'ut th* slips end to end, and you will htns a rib bon that will reach round the world. In 1839 an ingenious Friend who had 'ailed in business had obtained a fituaiior .in booking-clerk on the Newcastle and C.ir isle Railway. He had to boo:; the pa;wc-n* <ers as thy passengers were booked for thf jld raail-coaches—that i.--, to write out theii lames in full, fill in particulars ,of tho date md station and class, and tear oil the ticket from a printed sheet.

LIFE IN THE ALLEGHENI [Newspaper Article] — Gisborne Gazette — 6 February 1914

X-iffK, IN THE ALLEGHENY A type of pioneer still existing in the Allegheny mountains, but fast passing away, is the old-time lumberman and wood-chopper. At the present day the number of men engaged in that healthy but arduous occupation is but small com pared with the thousands that laboured in the pine forests a few decades since. Still the lumberman met with occasion ally in the interior of Pennsylvania faith fully portrays the characteristics of the class. Attired in a costume which would cause a sensation upon Broadway, he stalks along without attracting the slightest noticc from the inhabitants, with whom his appearance is too familial to cause comment. The genuine old time woodsman will be seen in midwinter wearing a fur cap, the material of which is possibly a'trophy of his rifle. A heavy and exceedingly loud pattern flannel shirt is his only chest covering, for he scorns the coat and vest of the towns people. A pair of commonplace trousers tucked into long stockings cover hi...

THE KIDDELL'S CBEEK CEME TERY. TO THE J5D1IOK OF THE GAZUTTE Sib,—As one interested here at Rid dell's Creek, I think that we should all join in urging the trustees to make some guard or provision against lire. The lesson of Sunday last, ought to mako lis all (both trustees and others who have interest in the place) do a little more than "think." If the lire that came down the ''Gap" had gone on towards the cemetery, a clean sweep would have been made, and the great heat would liava cracked the tombstones and destroyed all fences and plants, and then' what talk there would be.—"Why was'nt the grass burnt?" The summer is not over yet, and the danger is still here. There are plenty, I am sure, like myself, only too willing to help tho trustees in a difficult matter if thej- will only act and do some thing. With one quarter of the help that was available on Sunday, the place cau be put iu a position of safety. Will the trustees give us this opportunity to supply this help, and avert a ...

The Gazette. PUBLISHED EVERY FRIDAY. WITH SUPPLEMENT. The Gisborne Gasette is an Advertising Medium of the Gisborne, Melton, Bulla, Romsey, & Bacchus Marsh Shire Councils FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 6, 1914. RUMOURS OF WAR. The Tory Press in England is sparing no efforts to create a panic, largely for the purpose of embarras sing the Government by forcing an inflated shipbuilding programme. All this is done at a time when there is a perceptible lessening of the strain, as regards Germany, the only Euro pean power that, so far, has shown a disposition to challenge the naval supremacy of Great Britain. As Mr. Lloyd George said in his now famous Criccieth conversation: "The lightening of the burden of rates must be an essential part of the pro gramme of both political parties. ...The strain had been re   laxed owing to Sir Edward Grey's diplomacy, and Continental nations were directing their energies to strengthening their land forces." Following on the same lines, Mr. Runcim...

Soon afterwards he commenced a suit against the owner of the place; demanding heavy damages on the ground that th® wound he had received rendered him per manently unable to earn his living. The defence was that he could bog just as weil as ever, and that the injury in question, far from being a disadvantage, only in creased hi? chances itrhis profession. But the court held that the proprietor of a house is responsible for the security of 'She people who come io visit him, even when the object of the visit is io make as appeal to his generosity, In England there are consumed about Ii" gallons of milk yearly per inhabitant,"" A milled crown-piece of Charles II. is worth from eight to fifteen shillings.
