[?]DELL Tuesday. [Newspaper Article] — Gisborne Gazette — 23 October 1914
i ' i )ljc, 'l tens 1 I I *t» (From. Uur Uwn Correspondent.) Tuesday. War news has now a rival in the press by racing' items, and for a time tho latter will, with many, have the greater interest, Not to bo able to "talk horse" now is looked upon as a weakness and a wonder. The dream stage or state has not as yet been reached here this year, and your correspondent has to rely upon a dream of last year, wherein he saw a black horse (presumably Rathlea) winning the (Jup. As dreams are sucn peculiar things, perhaps it was this year's Uup that was predicted, and the outcome may be as follows: —Rathlea, 1; Uncle Sum, 2; Lilva's Isle, 3. t But far superseding the interest in war ami racing is, with some locally, the fact that the celebrated Golden Oak of Hiddell is again in its glori ous beauty. With some of these people every other matter and event is oi small importance, bo much so is this the case with one in particu lar that he has "got 'em bad," aud has broken forth in song, thus :— C...
HOW TO SUCCEED AS A SHOPKEEPER. [Newspaper Article] — Gisborne Gazette — 23 October 1914
HOW TO SUCCEED AS A SHOPKEEPER. In "Harmswort-h's Magazine" for October Mr. William Wluteley gives his expert views on the subject. Be fore Air. Whiteley came, Westuounie grove had been considered a bad bust uess neighbourhood. It was against all advice that he decided to oegin business in it, but before so deciding he had satisfied himself that the people were there who would buy, if they thought it worth their while, and that was a reason for the slack ness of trade—the "inflated prices" charged by the shops. Mr. Whitcley determined to supply the best goods at the lowest possible figures, avoid ing middlemen and all mere extrava gances. When he began he had only a little shop, with two girls and an errand boy ; after a year he had six teen girls and two boys, and now his business has extended into seven ty different departments, with some j C000 assistants. This success he attributes to his acting on various admirable maxims, notably that fair trading is gene rally successful trad...

Sir,—I, along with many others of the ratepayers of New Gisborne, pro test greatly against the action of the shire council in depriving ub of the lighting of our little town. The want of light in our narrow main street is a Beriuus source of danger to traffic on dark nights ; to ohurchgoers the want is greatly felt. On Sunday night last, people had to carry lanterns to prevent falling over horses and cowa. Surely we are being treated most uniairly,— kftJHOT GU& DA$plSS$, W y.ieljata^ $R,
DOGS AS WARDERS. [Newspaper Article] — Gisborne Gazette — 23 October 1914
DOGS AS WARDERS. The most effectively guarded con .icts in the world are ihose in the" .Stale Prison at Huntsville, Texas, who are walched while at work by huj/.e Ulmcr dogs. An escaping con vict would he pulled down and liter ally torn to pieces before he had gone twenty yards, for, unlike blood hounds, these do^:s, which are known in this country as Great Danes, cah oot he called ofl. A short time ago a negro under a life sentence made a dash for liberty, but had not gone j many yards before he was caught by ' a couple of the hounds and torn to I pieces. These inhuman methods are | paid to be necessary owing to The I TS/erate character of the prisoners, I who, for the most part, are negro j ' ri_;.niis and mura*rets. It is told of Abram Lincoln that once when quite a young man he witnessed a slave auction in Ohio. He saw men and women put en the block, exhibited for sale, bought like cattle.

TO RENOVATE VENETIAN BLINDS. [Newspaper Article] — Gisborne Gazette — 23 October 1914
' O TO RENOVATE VENETIAN BLINDS. Venetian blinds would not need j painting so frequently if they were ; regularly cleaned at home every year. This can be done, for now it is so easy to take them down, as they generally rest on two iron stays, one at each side, so they can easily bo slipped off any time for repairs. Before taking the blind to pieces, notice how the cords run through the caUh. then over the pulleys, and down the laths ; observe particularly how the cord is threaded, first one side, then the other, of the little cross-tapes, thus keeping tbe cord in its place. Begin by taking out the tacks that fasten the two large tapes at the bottom, also under the imot of the cords, then take out all the laths and wash them. Wash the tapes well in a large mug, and the wooden ledge to which the tapes are fastened, and •which forms the upper part nt the llind;; iron the tapes, and hang lip to dry. Lastly put all together, which will be found very simple, if these little details have b...
CORRECTNESS IN CARDS, [Newspaper Article] — Gisborne Gazette — 23 October 1914
CORRECTN"ESS IN CARDS, The fashion in visiting cards changes slightly every lew years, and from a good city stationer one can J always ascertain the prevail'ng style I i wilh regard to size, shape, tnickness, I lettering, etc. Thus, for many | years, the use of engraved script i was almost universal, but at the 1 present moment there is a tendency j toward Roman ana Old English let- ; tering. , Certain rules do not vary. Thus, , visiting cards should always he en- j j graved in type not large enough to | be startling, nor small enough to ! seem affected, on plain white card board of the best quality. Gentle men use a small card, long and nar row ; young ladies a rather small card, and married ladies a larger one, both of the latter tending to the square shape. Should a gentleman prefix "Mr." to his name ? He should ; and an | unmarried lady should have her card engraved "Miss Sarah Robinson Far ley," the present fashion being to display all one's names. No nick names-should be used....

USES FOR SODA. Wash hairbrushes in strong tepid soda wafer, thpn rinse well in clear, cold water, and place in the air out .of sunlight to dry. Adda speck of soda when cooking beans or any vegetable which seems tough, and the cooking process is quickened.

CUSTOMS AT THE TABLB, [Newspaper Article] — Gisborne Gazette — 23 October 1914
CUSTOMS AT THE TABLB, i AX a carefully set dinner tabla should be at each place three forks at. the left, two or three knives and a tablespoon on- the right, glasses for water and other Leverages on the right above the knives.' A nap kin plainly folded is in the centre, enclosing a roll.- 11 other silver is needed during dinner, it is placed be fore the course is to be served, but the:first;'>arrangement described is the1 usual rule, and avoids confusion. The tablespoon is iwed for soap.

HOW HE DOES IT. [Newspaper Article] — Gisborne Gazette — 23 October 1914
I HOW HE DOES IT. BY KATE THORN. He is on the verge of desperation be fore he attempts it. He has tried all the expedients kiown to civilized man, and all having failed, the melancholy fact is forced Lome apon his soul that he must sew on a button, or lie abed for the remainder ol his life. He mortally hates to undertake it. He looks round among his belong ings for a needle, and, after a long and vigorous search, he finds one rusted into the pincushion, with the point bro ken off. Then he looks for thread, and resurrects a snarl of odds and ends, and selects the finest, because experience has taught him that the liner the thread the easier it Avould go into the eye of the needle. Next thing is a button, for of course he has lost the one which has came off, as is usual with men. Women always have all their loose buttons, and so do not have to search for them. He finds a good many buttons, but none of them are exactly what he wants. Still, they will do, he thinks. He gets the garment ...
