NOTHING EXTRAORDINARY THAT. [Newspaper Article] — Gisborne Gazette — 22 May 1914
trOTHING EXTRAORDINARY U © THAT. © Some ten or twelve years ago an inci dent occuiTcd at Gibraltar which illus Iratcs the practical views of a certain class of people. A subaltern named O'Donohue wai the officer of the guard at the Elphin stone Guard. At this point of the world known rock there is a sheer drop of ovei 1,000 feet. A lieutenant who had taken too much champagne at a mess dinner walked ove the rock and undoubtedly was dead h fore he reached the rocks below. When the officer of the guard upoi» being relieved made out his report of his guard, he made no mention of the fact. Indeed, when he came to fill in his re port and reached the question, "Has any thing extraordinary happened while you were officer of the guard?" he wrote in the blank space reserved for the answer, " Nothing." Of course, he was summoned before Lord Napier, of Magdala, the Governo of Gibraltar. When he appeared, Lore Napier asked— " You were the ofiicer of the gunrd a Elphinstone Guard yesterday?" " I ...

A BEAUTIFUL SPONGE. [Newspaper Article] — Gisborne Gazette — 22 May 1914
A BEAUTIFUL SPONGE. I " Some of the most beautiful things that live in the ocean are the sponges of the great depth.;, which have often very j curious and interesting forms," said a naturalist. "Not the least remarkable, are the so-called ' sea nests,' which are j in the form of spheres or sometimes egg shaped. The cuter coat of one of these specimens is n complicated network, over which a delicate membrane is spread. An ornamental frill adorns the upper part while the lower portion throwg out a maze of glossy filaments like fine white hairs. These hairs penetrate thf. semi-fluid mud In every direction, thus ' holding the sponge in its place, while a continuous current of water is drawn by waving ' cilia' through all parts of the mass, passing out by a holi at the top. In this manner the animal absorbs what* ever food may be afloat. —.Detroit Free Pwm, j The woman who enters the street ca? j with two big market baskets knows that j she's unwelcome to the passengers, and i the knowle...

DI8AFFECTI0N !N INDIA, According to a cable message, Sir George McAlpinc, in addressing- a meeting" of the Baptist Missionary Society, emphasised the fact that caste in India was disappearing. The learned Indian, he said, declared that it would not endure beyond anothei decade. When cast© was gone, lie said, there would be a great influx into the Christian Church. It seems a pity not to share the cheery optimism of the speaker, but the disappearance of caste in India would have conse quences far beyond what was evidently in his mind when addressing' the meeting-. British rule in India since the days of Warren Hastings has been based on the maxim, divide et impei a. If it were not for the caste system, which is an effectual bar to anything like a union amongst the peoples, ana th...
MARRIAGES OF CELEBRATED MUSICIANS. [Newspaper Article] — Gisborne Gazette — 22 May 1914
jtl&ltHIAGES OF CELEBRATED MUSICIANS. Weber's -wife was Carolina Brandt, a talented soubrette, said to have been a good . diil spoiled by the public, though she left the stage on her marriage. She brought much happiness to Weber, who was a model huabuncf, 'e ml iei: that his greatest pleasure in ' life was to provide for his wife and children to the utmost of his power. Mozart was first deeply enamoured of Aloysia, second daughter of Fridolin Weber, ! ft prompter and copyist of Mannheim, but her own attachment did not (survive his ab- ! ■ence for a few months, and she scarcely seemed to remember him on his return. Four years afterwards, he married Weber's third daughter, Constanze ; but though she bad some excellent qualities she proved to bo » thoroughly bad manager, and scarcely the ideal wife for a man so careless about money matters as Mozart was. They began house keeping on next to nothing, and in .six months were in serious difficulties, whilst Mer on the wife suffered...
