LIFE IN THE ALLEGHENI [Newspaper Article] — Gisborne Gazette — 23 January 1914

At the present day the | number of men engaged in that healthy but arduous occupation is but small com pared with the thousands that laboured in the pine forests a few decades since. Still the lumberman met with occasion* j ally in the interior of Pennsylvania faith- j fully portrays the characteristics of the class.

When Mechanics' Institutes were first established in Scotland in 1800, they were, as the title indicates, associations of mechanics—men who worked hard, but who were bent on self-improvement,. For this purpose, the centre of each institute was the reading-room and lending library, and with these, the lecture hall and classes. In Australia we havo copied the name, but in the country districts, at all events, there is little else resembling the original Mechanics' Institutes .of Great Britain. It is true there is the hall and library, but, instead of lectures, the hall is generally used for dancing, and classes have given way to billiards and cards. Our Riddell correspondent points out that the local institute is prospering, and it is satisfactory to learn such is ...

Little Peleg, having in view a game of marbles for keeps with Bill Simmons, sat on the floor practising with his china alley on various objects. At last it struck him that the closed eye of the old cat would be about the proper sized target for him to try his skill on, and he shot his alley at it, at short range. It was a good shot. The marble hit the cat's eye fair and square The cat jumped three feet from the floor, *nd the yell she gava iwoke the Old Settler from his doze in the rush-bottomed rocking chair.
