BAD LANGUAGE. TO THE EDITOR OF THE GAZETTE. [Newspaper Article] — Gisborne Gazette — 18 December 1914
BAD LANGUAGE. TO THE EDITOR OF THE GAZETTE. Sib,—I think "Common Decency,' when he complained of bad language at New G-isborne, should have had the com mon fairness to explain that the language of which he complained was not used by a New Gisborne resident. The individual who did the "cake walk" and used lan guage more expressive than polite, was not a New G-isborne resident. Other wise I agree with "Common .Decency." Bad language in a public place should be put down, and I consider that it is the duty of every respectable cittzon to in form the authorities when such discrutinc outbreaks do occur. —Yours, e;e., NEW GISBOENE.

WAR NEWS. ITALY AND THE WAR. [Newspaper Article] — Gisborne Gazette — 18 December 1914
WAR NEWS, ITALY AND THE vVAR. Soma very interesting disclosures have been made with reyaru to the pusitiou of Iu,y bcfurt the outbreak of the war, It aDDGttfB that early in July, when l'G lfttionB between Austria and Servia beoame strained, Italy counselled moderation, and Austria replied that she did not believe Russia was pre pared for war, but that i£ Russia in tervened Germany would take part. In reply to the Italian Minister, who pointed out the probability of Great Britain joining ths war, both Vienna and Berlin replied that they were convinced Great Britain would not take the risk of entering upon a European conflict, 'lhe lt-ulian Minis ter replied that such a view was erroneous,. However, the warning was unheeded ; German diplomacy prevailed, and ths ultimatum which precipitated the great war was sent to Servia without Italy being con sulted. This is a very interesting sidelight on the early history of the war, for it appears that Italy, though a member of the alliance, was...

They can be got to suit all tastes with regurd to the colour >f the flowers, and to suit all posi tions with regard to their hardiness.

Mrs. Gordon, a very old and well known resident ot the district, has just received word by telegram that her youngest son, Robert, was killed in an accident in Queensland, where he had resided for several years past. The deceased was unmarried, and about 40 years of age. Splendid rains fell on Monday last, and were the best for many months, filling waterholes and watercourses that had not flowed for many months. The Riddell's Creek had just ceased to flow where it passes the Red Rock Estate, and fish were dying in quan tities. If rain had not so fortunately come, a serious condition would have arisen. _ A function of great interest was car ried out on Tuesday last, viz,, an examination of the members of the first-aid classes by Dr. F, C. Ander son, of Woodend, Nineteen members assembled in the State school at -i p.m. A number of questions were put on the examination papers for answers in theory, and members had to give practical demonst...

And ia thfe export to over-sea markets the figures jumped from 11,649 cases the f revkms year to! 36,000 cases.
