THE GISBOENE RIFLE CLUB TO THE EDITOR OF THE GAZETTE. [Newspaper Article] — Gisborne Gazette — 25 September 1914

•THE GISBOENE RIFLE CLUB TO THE EDITOR OF THE OAZKTTE. Silt)—There has evidently been some misunderstanding \jith regard to my letter of a fortnight ago, as to whom the landowner was I referred to. Some in the town are under the impression that it is the owner of the land on which the pit is situated (Mr H. Brandum). This is not the case. Mr Brandum, I believe, is a member of the club, and at once gave his permission. It is the executors of the Bosslynne estate who are holding back. In the event of the club failing to get the guarantee, could not the Govern ment intervene and make them give in ? Where is the committee of rhe club that thpy are not seeing to this ? Isow is tho time to make a move if we are to get an improved range. Other clubs have got up-to-date ranges, why cannot wb hare one too ? —Yours, etc,, &IFLEMAN.

Let the Mothers be Educated. [Newspaper Article] — Gisborne Gazette — 25 September 1914

Let the. Mothers be Educated. Ifc has been considered from the earlfc flsfc time3 that a mother's love was a sufficient outfit for her in the care of het children, that in some mysterious way the knowledge which is needed every day in the delicate and involved busi ness of rearing the young of the human species would be contained in this love, and that no special preparation for the work is necessary, says a writer in Har per'a Weekly. When one reads the terrible statistics that one-half of the iace die before reaching the age of 5 years, suspioion becomes strong that this time-honored belief in regard to mothers is a barbarous mistake. When a person of judgment enters the average nursery and watches its -workings for a week, the suspicion grows to a. ghastly conviotion; and when a conscientious, &nd intelligent person beoomes familial with the amount of discretion necessar) to keep a family of children in health for a single, calendar year Under the complicated conditions o...
