CHURCH OF ENGLAND. Induction Service at Gisborne. [Newspaper Article] — Gisborne Gazette — 3 April 1914
CHURCH OF ENGLAND. Induction Service at OJisbornc. There was a large attendance in St. Faul's Church, Gisborne, on Fri day evening, when the new incum bent, the Rev. H. F. Miller, formerly of St. Saviour's, Collingwoocl, was formally installed. The service was c6nducted by the Rev. I). I)easy, of St. Columb's, Hawthorn. As we stated in our last issue, Mr. Miller has had a varied career and interesting experiences. He was or dained by Bishop Goe, and after serving in several Victorian parishes, he went further afield in connection with the work of the Brit ish and Foreign .Bible Society. While in the Philippines he translated the jS'ow Testament into the language of the country. It was while he was incumbent of St. Saviour's, Colling wood, that he was appointed to St. Paul's, Gisborne. The order of service for the insti tution or induction of a priest is most interesting, and it should be ' needless to remark that Mr. Densy was very impressive all through.

Sir Waller, I. nra going to call my place ' The j ' Flodden Intl.' and ye've written a ' poem oti I'Moduon Fiols it struck! me and the guide wife that you might ! gie us a line for a. motto." I "Have .you read the poem ?" Sir Waller asked. "Ntie, sir; I'm nae a reader." "Well, I .should sulvi.se you to read the poem and take a line from it." "And what'll it be V" Sir 'Walter, without a smile, re plied, "Prink, weary traveller, drink and pray." " Hut," cried Boniface, aghast, "j»y inn's not a-kirk ; and the more prayin'~" there is the less dritikin' there'il be, and I dinna want that." "Oh," laughed the poet, "I think 1 can alter the line.

Wireless Works Best During Storms at Sea. [Newspaper Article] — Gisborne Gazette — 3 April 1914
Wireless Works Best Du ring Storms at Sea. Mysterious as the transmission of wireless messages seems to the aver- | age lay mind, there are phases con- j necled with wireless telegraphy whielij i bailie the scientiiic niincl as well. Certain atmospheric conditions are known to be more favourable to the transmission of wireless messages than others. Thus, the reach of an instrument is always longer at night, than in the daytime, and on a night following a cloudy day the reach is ninny times as long. The ideal condition for transmission is a! cloudy day across water, and many J scientiiic minds aro puzzling them-j selves to find some explanation fur; tin's. | Professor A. H, Taylor, on the j subject of wireless, calls attention: to the fact that the explanation ! usually accepted is hardly admissi-; ble. According to this theory j sunny (.lays cause ionization of the iiir, that is, they cause disinlepra-1 lion by ultra-violet rays. Hut I'ro- : fessor Taylor points out that ioni/.a- ; ...

How Alcohol Makes You Slow and Inaccurate. [Newspaper Article] — Gisborne Gazette — 3 April 1914
How Alcohol Hakes You Slow and Inaccurate. Tho common theory that a small quantity of alcohol at the right time and place and in moderation is really helpful and serves to lu-ing out somu latent power of tho hody is not sustained by tho following experiments : The late Dr. Pudge made some ex periments at a hospital on a group of ten people, comprising medical students, porters, and nurses. He put up at tho end of a corridor a row of letters, and got each mem ber of tho group to walk slowly from the other end until the letters could bo read, of course changing tho order of the letters in each case. A mark was made on the floor to show tho spot where tho reading was done, and tho person's initials placed beside it. Then ho supplied them with beer in quanti ties ranging from half-a-pint to as little as one-sixteenth of a pint. ! On repenting the test, not one of the group could now read tho let ters at the spot where they for- ; merly stood ; all had to go j nearer. In no case was ther...

The remarkable story of the ad ventures of an English family in Lhe interior of Peru was related to a Central News representative by Mrs. Evelyn Ankers, who is tem porarily resident fit Twickenham. Mr. Sydnev Raymond Ankers, lhe lady's husband, is an engineer, who was engaged to lake a motor launch to a .Spanish rubber mag nate, the launch being intended for use in the conveyance of rubber on the Amazon. Mr. Ankers decided to take with him his wife and his little boy Merrick (.Jim.) Mrs. Ankers was the first white woman to penetrate to Madre dc Dios, and her appearance there caused something like consternation among the native women of the district, who ultimately gained suf ficient- confidence to approach near enough to Lhe white woman to tear away every button from her dress. When the motor launch had been put together, and the Indians had been drilled in the handling of it, the Spaniard, fearing tha...
