GENUITY OP SMTJ6GL It wasdnc« remarked by « prominent Bn tish statesman that the most of people hvt<t an "ignorant impatience of taxation," an4 few will deny that there is much truth in th# statement. Turgot, a great financier, ance put it in this way, "Taxtiion is the'ari of plucking the goose without making it «ry!" Account for it as we may, the tax gatherer is a very unpopular personage. To paraphrase the saying about " Necessity," «tc., we might well say," How to evade him" has been " the mother of invention." In order ta'cheat the gauger, deep cunning and rooay a fraudulent device have been brought into play again and again. Few things, in deed, have exercised tha ingenuity of mac ao much as smuggling. Some years ago a ship entered the port oJ I»irerpool in which the o&ptain had a quan tity of contraband t< nacco stowed away, and ■which, of course, he desired to land. Un known to him, one of the ctew was aware ol the fact of his having this tobacco...

A Blind Bass. [Newspaper Article] — Gisborne Gazette — 6 March 1914

A ."Blind Bass, Captain Maieas, manager of iho old Iron Pier at Concv Island, recently ex hibited a totally blind striped bass which was caught in the surf together with half a dozen othes bass. They were captured with rod and reel, with snndworms foi bait. One eyoof the blind bass was gone, having; evidently been torn out by a hook, and trie other eye was covered with a heavy cataract. The question which wil) now interest the scientific world is, Can fish smell? This question, like the ques< tion "Can fish hear," has long been an interesting one. This bass certainly had the sense of smell well developed or it could not have procured its food. Tho Captain advanced tho theory that tho other bass guided their unfortunate com panion up to its food, but the cannibal istic nature of all fish conllicts with this idea.
