FIRE BRIGADE BAZAAR. [Newspaper Article] — Ashburton Guardian — 15 June 1908
FIRE BRIGADE BAZAAR. To the Editor. &quot;One Who Has Subscribed Three Times&quot; to the Fire Brigade seems to be in rather a bad way. I cannot tell from the tone of the letter if it is a he or a she that 'has written it, but it is to be hoped that they may never need the services of our brave firemen. lam only a worker, with no interest in the brigade, and if &quot;Three Times Subscriber &quot; will let you know how much they have spent on the brigade I will go round with the hat myself and collect the money, and leave it with you for him or her, for it would be a real pity for them to bo annoyed by such common peonle as firemen. THREE TIMES THREE FOR THE BRIGADE.
SUGGESTIONS TO FOOTBALLERS. [Newspaper Article] — Ashburton Guardian — 15 June 1908
SUGGESTIONS TO FOOTBALLERS. To tho Editor. Sir. —Allow me space in your columns for a few suggestions to footballer 1 generally. The County Union is constantly receiving applications, drawing on the accident fund, but I don't think we each look ahead and provide for ourselves in case of accident. In this particular respect the Union is labouring under difficulties and I think every follower of the game, either active or otherwise, should willingly render assistance. Last year tho Accident Fund proved indispensible; indeed, is continually being drawn upon, until it is about drained out, and I think it is our duty to our fellow players to keep up this fund. If each individual player were to contribute the small sum of Is the Union would have out of tho six clubs about £15. Then a collection could be taken up at all the remaining matches, which I am sure would meet with surprising support from the spectators. I hope that some one in cacli club will take this matter up in the right spir...

TUNNEL UNDER THE THAMES. [Newspaper Article] — Ashburton Guardian — 15 June 1908
TUNNEL UNDER THE THAMES. Per Press Association —Copyright. LONDON, June 13. The Prince of Wales opened the Rotherhithe-Stepney tunnel, 6883 feet long, of which 1500 feet are under the river. The cost was two million sterling, and the tunnel is the largest boring in the world. Tlte Prince of Wales rejoiced that the work had been accomplished entirely by British minds, muscle and material. [Early in 1899 the London County Council adopted a recommendation of the Bridges Committee to construct a tunnel under the Thames between Rotherhithe and Ratcliff. The total length of the tunnel and approaches from Union road on the south to Commercial road East on the north is about a mile and a quarter, and the dimensions are slightly larger than those of the Blackwall tunnel, 30 feet diameter external measurement, sufficient to obtain a carriage-way of 16 feet or 17 feet and two footways of over four feet each.]

CAUSE OF RHEUMATIC PAIN. [Newspaper Article] — Ashburton Guardian — 16 April 1910
CAUSE OF RHEUMATIC PAIN. &quot; Foi a number of years I was ■ martyr to chronic rheumatism, and suffered untold agonies from pain and consequent weakness. My joints were swollen to nearly twice their natural sizo. My appet'ito became capricious, mill 1 was miK/h reduced m flesh. The slightest change m the weather would intensify the agonising pains. My limbs wevo so sore that I could bear not the slightest touch. I tried many so-called inives, but never did I receive permanent relief, until Warner's Safe Cure was brought to my notice by a friend m whom I had entire confidence. The medicine seemed to agree with me perfectly. I could feel a change for the better from week to week,' and the pain gradually left me. Soon I was perfectly cured. My joints were reduced to their natural size. I am now as strong m tho joints as the average woman, and do not tive readily with exertion.
