PUBLISHED EVER? WITH SUPPLEMENT. The Oisborne Gazette is an Advertising Medium of the Oisborne, Melton, Bulla, Rovuey, cfc Bacchm Marsh Shire Council* FRIDAY, OCTOBER 9, 1914 LOCAL AFFAIRS. Though we have no desirs to mini mise, in any way, the efforts of two or three members of the Gisborne Pro gress Association to improve the affairs of the town, we cannot_ al together agree with the optimistic tone of the chairman's report of the work done by the Progress Association, as a whole, since its inception. The position is, briefly, that a little haB been done, but a great deal has been left undone. The enclosure in front of the Bank promises to be an orna ment when the planting is completed, and there does not appear to be any good reason whjr this season should have been practically lost. As was pointed cut at the meeting, however, there are matters in the towuehip that should be attended to, either by the Progress Association or by the Shire Council) and here a mistake was made at th...

Fruit for Exports [Newspaper Article] — Gisborne Gazette — 9 October 1914

Fruit for Export j. Last year there was an increase of ; 50,000 cases of apples and pears ex ported to-neignbOLring States over those of the previous year. And in . thte export' to over-sea markets the figures jumped from 11,649 cases the previous year to 36,000 cas^s. The lesson to be drawn from this sub stantia,! gain is that increased atten tion ta manuring and spraying, more care in the selection, grading, and packing of the fruit, on the pari of the growers, and increased .atten tion by the . shipping companies t< the management of the freezing cham bers, is leading to profitable busi ness, despite the heavy charges for transit. The destination of the over sea shipments affords interosting in formation. In apples, 26,000 cases went to the United Kingdom, 6,OnQ to South Africa, 2,300 to India, and 120 cases to China. In addition to this, 1,000 cases of pears and 378 cases of grapes were sent to Eng land, 228 cases of pears to South Africa, and 169 to India. Mr. French...

"The Society of Angels." aorae time ago a midlife of "Warsaw, Skublinekava by name, was brought to justice, with several of her coadju tors, for the crime of killing illegiti mate children. The •woman and her helpers called themselves "The Society of Angels," and engaged in the atrocious •work of "dispatching the little ones to heaven," of course for a certain consid eration pa.'d them by the unfortunate mothers or their fiiends. This fact aroused a discussion in all the Russian papers on the fate of illegitimate chil dren in that country. The mortality of such waifs was found to be over eighty per cent., even among those in the gov wwrnent asylums in St. Petersburg and Moscow, Those asylums keep the children only for a abort time, and cenil them to villages to be raised in the families of pgasauts, There they die in large numbers, "But the number of sucli children, as are "dispatchcd" directly by professional murderers like Skublinskaya can hardly be estimated, j Only about three w...
