■wnyiwn SPIRIT FINOERS AT THE KEY. An Operator Bothered by Persistent Cooi muulcuUons ft-om the Othor World.

Providing Against Wa[?]t. [Newspaper Article] — Gisborne Gazette — 27 March 1914
VrovUlIiig: Agulnst "YVuat. A form of praotical insurance against want is under advisement in this citj, hi which a large portion of the laboring people should bo deeply interested, says tlie Boston Herald. A working man is often thrown out of employ ment and reduced to great distress be cause he lias little or no money laid by, and is unablo to provide for his, board and lodging T/hile out of em ployment. It has been suggested that a people's mercantile company might bo formed amsng themselves which would undertake to provide board and lodging with landlords at the rate oi S-i, $5 or $0 a week, on such terms that, after one month of regular payments one weeks board at half pay might bo placed to the credit of the interested party, so that if he were out of work or sick or otherwise disabled, he might not be brought to discomfort because he could not pay his board. At this rate iu six months a man would be entitled to one and a half month's credit for board, which, at half rates, wo...

Cheese v. New Milk. [Newspaper Article] — Gisborne Gazette — 3 April 1914
Cheese v. Hew RHilk. Jt , People sometimes wonder (says the London " Dairy") whether cheese making or new-milk selling pays best. At the present time it is a question that comes to the, front because everyone knows that new milk has gone up in price lor the time being-, while so has cheese. The basis 01 comparative competi tion is easy to get at, hov/ever. One pound of curd is produced from one gallon of milk, the cheese itself being probably something like S per cent, less than the original curd. If milk, therefore, is reckoned at Scl. per gallon, then cheese is also re quired to be sold at Sd. per lb., or, say, 7-Is. per cwt., while other prices would be in proportion. The great drawback in the process 01 cheese-making is the extra labour required. Financially it is usual to reckon that the whey as a by product would cover the cost of labour whether fed U> pigs or calves. All the same, paying for the labour does not exactly cover the cost, because cheese-making is a ticklish jo...

On Ships' Bows. ^ A puzzling1 signal that has nroused tho curiosity of many people is to ho found on the hows of vessels. Near tho wnter-lino you will notico a number of Koman figures one on top of the other. Theso start from the keel, a foot apart, and aro uum bered consecutively. The usefulness of this precaution can be seen at once, as the ship's master has only to glance at the figure on a level with the water and ho knows a.t once the depth of the ship below water-lino.
Channel Tunnel Cost. [Newspaper Article] — Gisborne Gazette — 3 April 1914
Channel Tunnel Cost. j "Trains could bo running through the Channel Tunnel by about Christ mas, 1920," said Mr. Arthur Fell in a lecture at the Royal Society of Arts. Engineers now consider that the tunnels could be completed at a cost estimated at JC. U">,00o,0U0 to be raised over about six or eight years, one-half' to be found by Kngland, one-half by France. The £8,on(.i(0&lt;i0 to be raised by F.ngland would probably be in il 1,000,0&lt;>o of | debentures and J£ 1,&lt;X>0,0''|0 of shares. ! If the same fares which are now ' charged by the steamers were char i ged by the tunnel company," he i added, "the shares should pay very J large dividends."

Mottoes on Doors. SOME REMARKABLE EXAMPLES. [Newspaper Article] — Gisborne Gazette — 3 April 1914
Mottoes on Doors. t SOME REMARKABLE EXAMPLES, From a collection of mottoes in scribed on the doors of the dwell ings of famous mon, published in the "New York Tribune,"- we take tho following :— Jack London looks back with something of the pride that apes humility to his youthful experiences as a tramp. Nevertheless, those experiences have not taught him hos pitality to the masses. On the front door of his home in California this legend greets the wayfarer, "'No admission Except on Business. No Business Transacted Here." Tho back door is equally forbid ding. "Please," so runs the sign, "Do Not Enter Without Knocking., Pleaso Do Not Knock." There is a French proverb which says, "By reason of a punctuation marie Martin lost his donkey." And thereby hangs a talc :— Over the Abbey of Asinello, in Italy (as nello, it may be further explained, is a diminutive, meaning' a little ass) there once presided a. liberal-minded monk who caused these' verses, to bo inscribed over the outside door ...
A.N.A. CONFERENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Gisborne Gazette — 3 April 1914
A.N.A. COiTpERENCE. There was a larg-* attendance of delegates at the A.iT.A. Conference ar, Wangaratta last week. The Iocal delegates were :—Mr. Vigor (Bacchus Marsh), Mr. Shortill (Woodend). The Melton and. Romsey branches were not represented. There was very little purely A.N.A. business, as the agenda paper was occupied mostly with public questions. In accordance with the instructions of the conference of 1913, it has been decided that each branch sending a delegate will receive £2 from the from tiie funds of the Board. There were some interesting speeches 015 forestry and dredging, j .The following resolution was carried: —"That the State Government be re quested to establish nurseries iu cen tres requiring reafforestation." The following resolution was car ried :—"That in order to bring the merits of Australian goods promi nently, before the public,, it is, in the. opinion of this conference, desirable that, legislation should be passed to ensure that ail articles manufactured...
The Escalator, or Moving Stairway. [Newspaper Article] — Gisborne Gazette — 3 April 1914
The Escalator, or Shoving Stairway. 1 Our illustration, taken from "Cas sier's Magazine," shows in a sim plified manner the construction of the .moving stairways which are taking the place of lifts ill largo stores, drapery establishments, etc. its great advantage over a lift lies in the fact that it is always in motion ; no time is lost in taking on and discharging passengers as in a lilt. The speed of moving is not groat, of course, but just tho speed at which the passenger may with facility step upon or from it in absolute safety. Tho first essen tial of design is to inspire confi dence on the part of the passen ger, and this was one great reason that determined the inventors to mnko it in tho form of a .stair case—an architectural feature fami liar to all from infancy. The esca lator may bo described aa a con tinuous series of rigid steps, unit ed by an endless sprocket chain. Through the arrangement of the tracks, any desired relation of tho steps is secured ; on the landings t...
A COLOUR DIFFICULTY. [Newspaper Article] — Gisborne Gazette — 3 April 1914
A COIX)UK DIFFICULTY. The "Kilniorc Free Press" writes •. Lust week, in rather a modest paragraph, we alluded to a rumour current that, "some children at a cer tain State school in the district were ordered to take off the objec tionable colour (green) by an as sistant teacher." We are now in a position to men- ; tion, upon what appears undoubted authority, that the rumour was per fectly correct, and that the incident occurred at tho Kilmore State school on St. Patrick's Day. As it is likely there will be inquiry into the unpleasant business, we do not wish to say anything to prejudice the case—we onl\r mention the par ticular school now, fearing it may bo inferred some other school might be pointed at as being responsible for such a miserable exhibition. We may add it is a subject freely talked of, and more than one has re marked the veracious local corres pondent of the "Age" has omitted to chronicle an event which has evoked some strong feeling. We have reason to believ.e the re ...
An Eternal Question. [Newspaper Article] — Gisborne Gazette — 3 April 1914
An Eternal Question. . M There is much talk at present by eminent scientists as to what form the spirit takes after death. Through all the apes men have sought the j duo to this great mystery, and, in all probability, the theories which are being- expounded to-dny were expounded thousands of years ago by ' the wiso Eastern, men. ! it is certain, however, that there are moments in the course of the average person's life when the spirit . ' of death hovers perilously near. j It is just after birth that the an- j I gels of life and death fight thoir , fiercest battle, and the next most ; dangerous age is that of soventy- ; one. j Tho ago of three comes next in im portance in this respect. Almost oue-fourth of all babies boru die j during the third year. j From three to forty-five is a com paratively safo period, but tho lat- | tcr age is admittedly a trying and . dangerous one.

TOOLERN VALE. Tuesday. [Newspaper Article] — Gisborne Gazette — 3 April 1914
TOOLERN VALE. A (From Our Own Correspondent.) Tuesday. -a.not.ner Dolt in Toolern Inst week was fortunately unattended by any serious consequences. ■ Four children were driving to school in a jinker, and bad occasion to leave orders at the store. On reaching Mr Wynne's the three elder ones got out, leaving a little boy, Frank Barrie, 7 years old, to hold the pony. There were other horses grazing in the vicinity, and when two shots were fired in quick succession not far away, they all made off. The boy lost the reins, and knelt down in the jinker, holding on to the dashboard. In this position he travelled about a mile, during which, time bags, coats, and cushions were bumped out. Then, with great presence of mind, he got on to the step and jumped out. He got off Yery lightly, the back of his head being just marked with gravel rash. The pony was stopped on road by Mr Tedcastle. The only damage done was a broken trace'and a lost wheel cap. Toolern's share of Friday's rain was 100 point...
Sound Advice. [Newspaper Article] — Gisborne Gazette — 3 April 1914
I Sound Advice. The Muddleton footballers were re turning home offer liming defeated their opponents, mid consequently several of them had a surfeit of spirits. As the train drew up at a small station one of the party who.appear ed to bo more foolish even than the others, and who was sucking a two-Tor-a-penny siirnr, popped his head out of the carriage window and addressed an elderly mar. who was leading a donkey. " Ow inuch'll yer take for the moke, guv'nor The answer staggered the youth and convulsed those within hearing distance. "You've enough to do to keep yourself, lad, without buying an other, so draw in • our head, and mind your ears against the sides o' the window." A keen-eyed' but obviously poor ly-educated settler in a colony in its pioneer stage took his over grown son to a country school. "This 'ere boy's arter laming," he said to the schoolmaster. " What's yer bill o' fare ?" "Our curriculum, sir," replied tho schoolmaster, "embraces geography, &lt; physiology...

RIDDELL (From Our Own Correspondent.) Wednesday The final match of the district cricket competition has caused a great deal o£ in terest, and has been played between Riddell and Lancefield, on the Romsey ground. It was started on the 21st, and continued on Saturday last, the 28th. Kiddell, with 41 runs to the bad on the first innings, went to the wickets, and put together the splendid score of 135 for the loss of five wickets, and then de clared the innings closed. Of this fine total, D. Hunt made 58 not out, C. Huff 50, Learmouth 13, Amess 12. The task ( lien before Riddell was to put Lancefield out before time being called, or the match would- hare to be decided on the first innings, which would give Lancefield the win. However, Riddell proved equal to the occasion, and put all their opponent* out for 35, and thus won the final game within three minutes of time. Those chiefly responsible for this great victory were Garlick, who took 4 wickets for 10 runs and bowled 72 balls, G-. H...
A Wrinkle for Cow Bails. [Newspaper Article] — Gisborne Gazette — 3 April 1914
A Wrinkle for Cow Bails. Dairymen have often felt (he need of an improvement in the floor ing of their cow bails, and the following method is one which com mends itself as a practicable and clean contrivance. It has the ad vantage. of doing away with the splash of urine during milking:, which is always present when the floor is made of cement or any other com pact surface. Take from 15 to 20 pieces of 3 1 hardwood and nail them firmly—about an inch apart — on to two pieces of 4 x S hard wood. The 4x3 pieces" must be about four or five feet long, and the whole will form an oblong floor. Lay this long ways in the 1j:iiI with half a sheet cf galvanised iron beneath it to drain off the urine. The iron will also be found useful for the removal ' of manure. When it has been fixed in position, the rest of the floor can be cement ed up level to make it neat, and the whole will form a comfortable and economical bail. 31ay (indignantly) : "I don't caro ; I think Harry Easterleigh is down righ...
