MRS. CAROLINE CHISHOLM. [Newspaper Article] — Gisborne Gazette — 27 March 1914

MRS'. CAROLINE OHrSIR)LAI. Mr. W. E. Abbot, of Wingen, has written to the Sydney "Daily Tele graph ,v advocating that something should be done by the women of Australia to commemorate the name of Mrs. Caroline Chisholm, tho heroine of Australian colonisation, whom the writer describes as "a woman worthy to stand on the same pedestal as the Knglish heroine, Florence Nightingale. In her grasp and understanding of the importance of the work she was doing she was, ii possible, greater and more heroic than Florence Nightingale, and, like tho great English nurse or saint, womanly always and in all things." In 1838 Captain and Mrs. Chisholm arrived in Australia from India with their family, on account of Captain Chisholm's. health. In 1810 Captain Chisholm .returned to India to join his regiment, intending to leave Mrs. Chisholm and his family for a short time longor in Sydney.

Many Liberals are convinced of this unpleasant fact, that our leaders are greatly to blame, for instead of trying to en thuse. the.

OLD CAMP MEETING. Trials of tho Methodist Prcaoliar Mlnoty Yearn A co, rS? ! It is difficult for the present genera-: tion of Methodist preacher* to appreci-j ate the toils of their predecessors ini . the West and South during the early1 rears of the century.

THE NAPOLEONIC LEGEND. Believers in what is termed the "Napoleonic Legend" will not agree that the dynasty became practically extinct after the debacle which laid Prance prostrate at the feet of the German .Conqueror, and forced Napoleon III., the victim of an in curable disease, as was the illus trious founder of the dynasty, to fly for protection to a foreign country. If the Great Napoleon raised Prance to the very pinnacle of military splendour, his descendant and successor not only lost the crown which he gained by the celebrated coup d'etat, but he left his country both despoiled and dismembered. The war indemnity, which was paid off in a few years, might be for given, but, in severing the lost provinces, a wound was inflicted on the pride of the French nation which still rankles. The...
