OLD CAMP MEETING. Trials of the Methodist Preacher Ninety Years Ageo. [Newspaper Article] — Gisborne Gazette — 27 February 1914

OLD CAMP WHET1NQ. Trials of *li« j\» rl liu*li>*i. i'roaolinr Ninety ' Wars A {;•»>. i It is difficult for tin? present genera tion of Methodist preachers to appreci-' I ate the toils of their predecessors in' I the Y.'est and South during the early ) vears of the century. Tiio labor of I ^riding a circuit" was incrediby great. Roads were meie bridle paths through the wilderness: there were no bridges; streams narrow and shallow wore forded; when deep and wide the rider tied his clothes in a bundlo on hia head and forced his horse to swim. Often there was not even the semblance of a road, and the preacher found his way by the compass, or, if he had none, by < the course of the sua by day and by the stars by night. If he lost his course, there was nothing for him to do but camp out, all night. If he hud the moans he built a tiro to scare away the w"':ve-s hears, and even tho more die.aded panthers. If t.he wild beasts were :i!if 11 inj erous, he slept, but if ho .saw...

Rockets That Carry Life Lines. [Newspaper Article] — Gisborne Gazette — 27 February 1914

. Rockets That Carrj Life Lines. "There liave been a vast_ number" of inventions of life br.v*ing apparatus to be used in time of shipwreck," said Capt. Fairehild, of the Steamboat Board to a New York Star reporter. ."Many of them," he continued, "have proved practicable and useful. When a vessel strikes a sandy bar oil' a main shore during a heavy gale prompt and immediate measures must be taken with a view toward saving life and property. Skyrockets are sent up ana the attention of the life-saving agents 011 the shore is attracted. Invariably a high surf is to be encountered 011 a dangerous coast, and to launch a life boat is almost next to an impossibility*. The only practicable method known of saving the lives thus imperiled aboard a wreck is to make a connection between the land and the wreck by nieaus of a hawser, and the shipwrecked persons are brought ashore singly. The great trouble, however, is in getting the line from the shore to the wreck. It is well known how difficult...

Why Won't Men Be Sincere with Themselves. [Newspaper Article] — Gisborne Gazette — 27 February 1914

Why Won't Men He Sinccrc with Themselves. It. is the custom of many persona tc purchase, at the end of each year, "diaries," in which they propose to set down their daily thoughts and acts— to write, in fact, their own private his tories in a series of annual volumes. As these autobiographical memo randa are only intended for the eyes of the parties who commit them to paper, it might ba thought that they would be candid and authentic. But this is sel dom the case. Few men are enti'ely sincere, even with themselves. 1'ew are willing to paint themselves as they really are and know themselves to he, even though none but themselves can contemplate the picture. Unquestionably hundreds of indi viduals who keep diaries, tell fibs, overreach their neighbors, arc guilty of detraction, repay good with evil, put an enemy in their mouths to steal away their brains, use profane language, and in other ways transgress the moral law. Yet were all the diaries in existence published to-morrow, no suc...

A curious instance of dormant metn faTtYiev, '\\fcy nY^cTi'u 'lioTKuVfi. ^neTo'rii •with lier a little brother of mine who was eleven months old, and his nurse, ■who waited on her as a maid. One day this nurse brought the baby info my mother's room and put him on tho floor, which was carpeted nil over. There he crept ubout and amused him self according to his Jights. When my mother was dressed, a- certain ring that she wore was not to be found. Great scarch was made, but it wa» never produced, and, tho visit over, they all went away, and it was almo.-x forgotten. Exactly a year after they again went to visit the grandfather. This baby was now a year and eleven months old. The same nurse took him into the same room, and my mother saw him, after looking about him, deliberately wait: up to a certain corner, turn a bit of the carpet back and produce the ring. Ho never gave any account of the matter, nor did he, so far as I know, remember it afterward. It seems most like...

WATER TROUBLE AGAIN. (To the Editor of "The Gazette.") [Newspaper Article] — Gisborne Gazette — 27 February 1914

WATER TJLiOUBLli AGAIN. t 1 (To the Editor of "The Gazelle.") Sir,—Mho report of the last meet- . ng of the Sunbury Water Trust con- j .aitis two surprises. One is the ex- t „raordinary statement by Cmr. , D'Brien, tliat he had "heard"' that , Loo much water was going to Kid- . dell, and not enough to Sunbury. ( Umr. O'Brien's source ol" information j is evidently most unreliable, for the ^ fact is that the property-owners ( situated along the Kiddell's Creek . have not lately been receiving one fourth of the due and legal amount of compensation water from the Sun bury supply main. 1'erliaps Cmr.

Fowl Breath MISFORTUNE FOR MAN OR WOMAN. The old saving that "Distance lends enchantment'* was. never more aptly to the point than when applied to those people whose breath is laden with evil smelling and offensive odours. Many persons appear most attractive at a distance, but produce a feeling of pity and disgust when close to, because of the condition-of their breath. For in stance, it makes little difference how beautiful a woman may* bo, or how charming her manner, if her breath is foul; her charm is gone, and she is at a disadvantage whenever she comes in contact with other people. Foul breath in woman arouses in man a, feeling of repugnance and a desire to get out of the company of such a wo man as quickly as possible; and even women will avoid her. It is, there fore, important for every woman who values her personal attraction to take such care of herself that this unplea sant and unnecessary complaint is avoided or corrected. Dr. Morse's In dian Root Pills will be found a se...

OLD PUNISHMENT BANKRUPTCY. , In an early and rude state of society .bankruptcy is always looked upon with harshness, and punished cruelly ; and perhaps it is really then less excusablt than it becomes when commerce is more advanced, and the returns of transac tions are less certainly to be depended on. Even Venice in old times had its stone of shame for bankrupts. Edinburgh followed the example of i that mercantile city, and set up one ol her own in the beginning of the seven teenth century. In 1C06,. (he Privy Council ordered the magistrates of the Scottish metropolis to erect "a pillory of hewn stone near the Market Ctoss: apon the head thereof a seat to be made, thereupon in time coming shall be sef ill dyvours (bankrupts) who shall sil there one market-day, from ten hours in ' the morning till one hour afier dinner." The unfortunates were obliged to wear i yellow bonnet on these occasions and for ever after (the livery of slavery in :he Middle Ages), unless they paid up :heir de...
