Whyte River Xoteg. . Our special carrcspondent writes under date February 1) : — Good news for share holders- in the Henzlewood S. M. Company. The silver-bearing formation discovered last week there Is proving to bo of great width, and carrying fair metal right through. A number of sections lately forfeited have been taken up by different companies on the line of lode, which is supposed to run through Crosby nnd Turner's block, nnd then through to Bell and Smith's, It was on Crosby and Tumor's lease that galena was first discovered in this district by Frank Long, some seven or eight years ago. I expect to boo the fires at work around the Meredith range this weokf if this ffne weather should last a few days longer. The undergrowth is just' getting- dry now, and prpspectqrs.shquld not lpsetha opportunity of burning all they can. ?'- Ono of tho Waratah storekeepers took it into his head to drive to the Whyto Bridge in a fish cart last Sunday.

INVITED TO A HANGING. ' After cxhnusting tho other sights in tho littles South Carolina town, wev-went over to the gaol to sees a murderer who wns to be hung one week from tlmt diy. ne wns a wluto man, nuout forty yenrs of age, and he had killed his wife with an axe because they differed in opinion If a wife will insist upon differing with her husband she must bo prepared for tlie worst. Husbands will suffer long and give no sign, but there is such a tiling as driving them to desperation. -? When wo entered the corridor the Sheriff was engaged in soaping the hangman's rope. It was a new one, nnd he wns in a hurry to render it smooth and pliable, and have the job off his hands. He took the rope along in his hand as we entered the cell of the con demned, and after a formal introduction the gentleman who was so soon to go on an excursion reached for the rope, care ful I v insrjected it. and observer!—.

A THEATRICAL MANAGER. [Newspaper Article] — Wellington Times and Agricultural and Mining Gazette — 14 February 1891
A THEATRICAL MANAGER, ', Heinrich Laubc, the director of tho Burg Theatre, Vienna, who died in the year 1884, was not tho man to smother a licce under its accessories, as is becoming ncreasingly tho fashion in tho London theatres. The Burg Theatre ranks as ngn among me Vienna tuoatrea as too Fraucais docs among the Parisian houses, and it was not economy but the severity of his taste which led him to prefer the simplest mites en sce'ne. ' I am not on upholstorer, but a theatrical manager,' ho used to say to thoso who taxed him with the poverty of the scenic decorations. H. Denis of tho Paris Enti-acte states that ho onco saw Lear performed at tho Burg Thoatre, and that, with the oxception of the throne in the first act, tho stage was perfectly bars of furniture or fixtures of any kind. A young actor who was en gaged to play Hanilot asked for a slight addition to the meagro invontory allowed for the tragedy. 'What!' said Laubo, horrifiod. ' I have already given you half a dozen chair...

Wynyard Notes and Queries. (TO THE EDITOR.) [Newspaper Article] — Wellington Times and Agricultural and Mining Gazette — 14 February 1891
Wynyni'rt nrotent and Queries. (TO THE EDITOR.) Sin, — ' There is not room to swiug a cat in it,' 'Duck Pond,' 'The Hole in tho Rock,' ' The Baths.' Such are some of tho names by which tho new port at Wynyard is brandcd.and that such names aronniironrlato to this Ministerial picnic folly is apparent. The Government paid a Urst-class engineer for his opinion. Mr. Hell gave his advice, but the Government, in opposition to. the counsel of so high an authority, listened to the pondcrlngs of others. Nu doubt the farmers who supported this ?' port folly' theory wcro honest in their intentions, but though they meant well they dp not seem to have fully weighed the matter; Before this 'hole iu the rock' can bo anything of a port it will cost the country JUOU.OUO. Tluit non-cxpert's advice should bo listened to in stead of the opinion of a gentleman like Mr. Bell is marvellous. The advocates of tho present work aver that it Is only a rough outline, but lit is to be hoped tho Govern ment will ...

Wyiiynril Notes, (FltOM OUR OWN'.COBBESPONDEST). A rather serious accideutihappened to Mr. W. Gamer, jun., on Tuesday luBt, whilsi carting from his father's farm on tho No. 2 road. Garner had a young horeo Gust - handled') iu tho lead, and ns it became somo wbut fractious, lie attempted to pull it up. Tho shaft horse also pulled back strongly, which caused the leader to swervo round suddenly and throw itself over the traces. In doing so Mr. Gamer was knocked down, and the horse rolled over him. The traces and shoes of tho horeo out him abont tho head and arm. The outs on tlic head were fortunately not deep, but the left arm waB badly lacerated, some of the sinews protrud ing. Dr. Graham was soon in attendance, and Garner is now progressing satisfactorily. It is to bo hoped no serious results will ensue, as Garner is probably the best footballer on the Coast, and his absence from the team, if for a UniiT only, will, greatly weaken the prospects of -success of the local team in the ap...
