Snakes and the Weather. [Newspaper Article] — Gisborne Gazette — 13 February 1914

Snakes and the Weather. Tlicre is a saying in India that if there bo no ruin during the Da&hahara, snakes fill Iho earth. Putting aside the relig'.ov s side of this assertion, the say ing has a scientific meaning. The eggs of s alecs ar■; addled if soaked in rain va'er. An early rain, therefore, des troys the e;;gs, ami late rains help the increase of the brood. Indeed, the young one-! coiuo just at this pericd, and village people kill a good many of them now. These young ones—even th se ju-t hatched—are almost as dun gi-i-.jus as full-grown ones, onlv the poi son of th" young ones acts slowly, be cause fho.ir fangs are very small and do do! g:, d -ep into the flesh. The snakea lay the r eggs in very dry places and patiently sit upon them until they are hatched. If the municipalities employ malvadvs (suake•charmers), tliey can (X'emanate tl:o snakes from the towns, all a-ft This could be done by destroy ing the cg ;3, and the snake-charmers i ftii Had them ii employed foi tU...

Ridiculous Remedies for Diseases. [Newspaper Article] — Gisborne Gazette — 13 February 1914

Ridiculous Remedies for Diseases. The reme^ es recommended in the early days of medicine were often worse than the diseases. How far Burton ap proved of them he does not say, but he appe.irs to mention them with respect. For melancholy < nu'er.'es and hot irons are to be used in the suture of the skull, and " 'tis not amiss to bore the skull with an instrument to let out the feu liginous vapors." Wine used soberly is one of Burton's'avi r;te remedios, for he mentions it again and again ; and even » the teetotaler will allow that it is to he preferred to hot irons. Wine is not good for ivad men whose b:ains ; re ir< ubled with In at, "but to me^ncholy, which is cold, w'ne, soberly used, may bj very good." Howe>.'l', if the patient objects to wine, lot him try a remedy eommemh d by Piso—namely, a ram's lungs applied to the fore part tf the head, or a ring' made of the hoof of an ass's right fore f^cit may bo carried about the person. Such nmi'lets, says Burton...

r THE OLD tojSrriJSIi. & <-Ed. Hott in New York'Sun.) The old cat lay asleep in the corner of .the kitchen, out of everybody's way. Little Peleg, having in view a game of marbles for keeps with Bill Simmons, sat on the floor practising with his china alley on various objects. At last it struck him that the closed eye of the old cat would be about the proper sized target for him to try his skill on, and he shot liis alley at it, at short range. It was a good shot. The marble hit the cat's eye fair and square The cat jumped three feet from the floor, -md the yell she gava twoke the Old Settler from his doze in the rush-bottomed rocking chair. "Jeewhizz!" ha exclaimed. "Be wa 'tacted by cattymounts ?" " P-o-o-o-r Kittie !" said Peleg, with & foice full of sympathy. "Did the fire snap out of the stove and burn your head ?

CORRESPONDENCE. [We do not necessarily endorse the opinions expressed by correspondents in this column.—ED. G.G.] SHORTAGE OF WATER. TO THE EDITOR OF THE GAZETTE [Newspaper Article] — Gisborne Gazette — 13 February 1914

CORRESPONDENCE I We do not necessarily endorse the opinions expressed by correspondents in this column.—Ed. O.G.] SHORTAGE 03? WATER. TO the editoh of the gazette Sir,—Kindly allow me space in your raluable paper to draw the attention of the ratepayers of Gisborne, who are so unfairly treated in the matter of water supply. Is it a fair deal to make the people living on higher lands, who seldom get the use of water when ittis xnost required, even for ordinary house hold purposes, pay the same rates as the more-favoured few, who can get a good supply all the week round, and swamp their gardens until the water is running down the paths. I have made inquiries about the waste water, and was indeed gJCeatly surprised to find that the people : living on what is commonly known as the Scotch Church hill have been carrying or borrowing water for quite three weeks, and on the Church of England hill, several ladies have informed me that un less they get up at iive in the morning to catch a bath...

TOOLERN VALE. —«— An accident winch might hare resulted more .seriously occurred at loolern Yale on Saturday. The Misses Hunter were driving a visitor to catch the 1 p.m. train at Melton. Having occasion to call at Mr Geo. Hunter's, the girls got out, leaving the visitor to hold the horse. A little while was spent here, auJ they were about to get back into the buggy again when, by some mischance, the horse got the winkers off. It took off at full gallop as far as Mr Hennie's black smith's .shop, where in turning the corner for the store, it came in contact, with the post. The impact threw the occupant like a rocket fully seven yards away, and smashed up the buggy and harness. The hosse careered around the road for a while with the harness on, and eventually made its way back to the house. Later on the injured man was driven to the doctor, who found the result of the accident to be a fractured elbow. It might hare been considerably worse.
