The weather of fch'iß week has shown us how much man is the creature of circum* atance3. Or rather, I should say how much the circumstance of a few days' rain will alter the case for the farmer; and we are here a community of people depending wholly on the success of thefarmera. For months the - men of the farms have been growling with hanging lips and lack lustre eyes because a relentlessly clear and blue sky showed no Bign of rain. But when "that lovely Thursday," as one pup it, came, and with ita Scotch mist gave us ever so little of a drenching, bub gave large promise of more, every sad eye beamed, and a seven-by-vine smile played and gambolled over the weather beaten countenances of the men who have to feed us all. It was worth surviving the drought indeed to see how easy ib was for. a shower of rain to turn sadness ...

A Faked Sensation. [Newspaper Article] — Ashburton Guardian — 23 April 1898

A Faked Sensation. ~ - — ♦ — Ptesa Association— By Electric Telegraph Napier, April 23 As the result of most careful investigation ln'o the sensational story, which emanated fiom Hastings, regarding an alleged attempt to derail a volunteer rpecial train on the night of Aprii 12, it will turn out that most probably the story is a pure " fake " Three batohers, going to work at Tomoana, found sleepers placed across the lino about five o'clock on the morning m question. They were the first to arrive aC the works, bub they , did not report the matter to anyone m authority there, or to the police^ at Hastings. They mentioned the subject casually to their males.

By this time many days had elapsed from the day of t...
