RIDDELL Tuesday. [Newspaper Article] — Gisborne Gazette — 8 May 1914

RIDDELL I (From Our Own Correspondent.) Tuesday. A movement is made to establish a rifle club in the district, and a meeting for that purpose was held in the Mechanics' Hall on Saturday night last, Mr Charles Scheurer being the convener. There was a fair attendance. Mr Smart, of Lauccfield .Junction, was voted to the chair. It was pointed out that many ad vantages would be gained by the for mation of such a club, and. that an excellent firing range existed on the estate of Sir Rupert Clarke, midway between Eiddell and Lanceiield Junction, and probably permission Eor the same could be obtained. Between 20 and 25 sig nified their willingness to become mem bers, and preliminaries are to be started at once for the establishment of a club. The Biddeil District Football Associ ation has had a short life, for the local club lias joined the recently-re-established Gisborne District Association.

SHIRKING THE WORK. [Newspaper Article] — Gisborne Gazette — 8 May 1914

SHIRKING THE WORK. One may have a very good ear for a tune without knowing much about har-. mony, or being in any sense an educated musician. Several years ago, during a St. Pat nek's Day procession, a ce.-tain official was observed listening intently to the playing "of one of the bands, the cloud on en's face increasing as he listen'ed. Finally he went to the leadei: and broke out— " Whin we pay good money to a band we want thim to all play; now here's wan or two of yez playing ' Sint Pathrick's Day,' and the rest of yez goin' 'toot/ toot 1'- Why don't all of yez play the cBune and aim your money ?"
