Hickel for the World. In the Copper Cliff mine, near bm bury, Canada, it is said more niokel ifl being: produced than the entire market of the world calls for at current prices. A little branch railway off the main line of the Canadian Pacitio Railway, four miles in length, leads out to the mine, which opens into the face ol a crag of the brown, oxidized Lauren tian rock characteristic of this region. The miners are now at work at a depth of about 300 feet below the surfaee.@ ■As-'fast as the nickel and copper-bear rig rook is hoisted out it is broken up tt-iil I'i'ed upon long beds or ricks of j-ii.e wood, tp be calcined, or . roasted, f ihe pursose-of driving out the sul pLii'r..which it contains.

Unwholesome Sleep. [Newspaper Article] — Gisborne Gazette — 25 September 1914

Unwholesome Sleeps Hot always is deep "tired natures iweet restorer." Sometimes, instead, • t£ a balm, it brings a bugaboo in tho j ibape of the nightmare.

This sort of thing, by the way, is only one remove from apoplexy, and the in cubus-ridden victim of inordinate and untimely self-indulgence is likely enough to be at last bestridden in his sleep by a nightmare too strong for his vitality—even death.

Though it is somewhat early to anticipate what will occur at the close of the great war now being waged, it is safe to say that there i will be such a rearrangement of the map of Europe as will put an end for all time to the power for evil of the Confederation of German States brought about by the genius of that master of duplicity and statecraft, Bismarck. The present war, which has been compared to an Armaged don, is only the outcome of the battle of fciadowa, when the Aub crians, being defeated, were obliged to resign the headship of the Ger man • Confederation to their Prus sian rivals. The war o£ 1870-71, which laid Francs at the feet of Prussia (for the nam© "Germany" was scarcely used in those days), completed the scheme of Bismarck to bring about a ...

WHY IS BRITAIN AT WAR? [Newspaper Article] — Gisborne Gazette — 25 September 1914

WHY IS BRITAIN AT WAR? §—.—„ Mr. Percy Nctt-lcton, of the .U<1 id eation Department, and a former re sident of Sun bury, sends us tko follow ing interesting artiole:— Wliy is Britain at war? In these days of mighty armies and huge ileets, war by some was considered over, tue paradox being solved in the view that die loss of life and the cost would be too great for modern nations to sus aaiu. But no, such a view is false. _/ue hears various opinions that this war of 1914 has been caused by a natural perversion of Teuton and blav. How can this be when ths Teutunic race includes Briton and German, uliilfit the Russian and Austrian are included under the Slavonic division of the European racos? This view is unstable. Again, the assassination of a Crown Prince and his consort has been advanced as the cause of this world-wide struggle. Surely an at -umpt of the aged and mourning Aus trian Emperor to bring to justice the perpetrators of a foul deed could not uvolvo such mighty n...
