AMEK1UA AJVJ> THE PHIL/II' FliNES. The reluctance ol the United States to interfere in the affairs of Mexico may be well understood when the experience of the great Republic oi' the West, with its foreign posses sions in otiier portions of the world, is considered. The war spirit, -\vliich resulted in the annexation o£ Cuba and the conquest of the Philippines, carried American statesmen off their feet, ;tud caused them to act con trary to the spirit of the Monroe Doc trine, which, after all, -was the only safe policy for the United States. According to this famous doctrine, no foreign Power is to be allowed to effect a landing on any part of the i American continent not already in I the possession of the European Powers. The converse of this would be that America should not sock foreig...
Giant Glaciers of Alaska. [Newspaper Article] — Gisborne Gazette — 1 May 1914

It surpassed in grvndeur though not in pioturesqueness the very best that the Alps can offer. Roughly speaking, the eye encountered for miles nothing but snow and ice. I had never before thor oughly realized the vastness of the Alaskan glaciers, though during the past fortnight we had spent many s weary hour in orossing immense mor aines. One of the glaciers we looked down upon was not lees than sixty milee long, while another attained a breadth of twsnty-five or thirty miles. From below1 had gained the impres sion t...

RIDDELL I (From Our Own Correspondent.) Tuesday. The late rams have had a beneficial effcct, and were most opportune, for many local farmers had sown seed in an ticipation of it, consequently many cul tivation paddocks are now looking well. Still a further fall of rain is needed for continuous growth. One of the best indications of a promis ing season is the autumn production of mushrooms, but, so far, such is not forth coming. Only a few here and there appearing as yet. A euchre party was held on Saturday night last in aid of the local football club, and prizes were won by Master Tom rimith and Mrs W. Donnelly.
