PREVENTIVE OF CONSUMPTION. [Newspaper Article] — Gisborne Gazette — 22 May 1914

PREVENTIVE OF CONSUMPTION, Dr, Rush says that the Germans ara seldom afflicted with consumption ; and this, "he believes, is in.part occasioned by ■he strength which their lungs acquire by exercising them in vocal music, for this constitutes an essential branch of their education. A music master is .still more in favour of this opinion. He states that he has known several instance3 of per sons strongly disposed to consumption, having been restored to health by ths Exercise of their lungs in singing.

A CHINESE BANQUET. [Newspaper Article] — Gisborne Gazette — 22 May 1914

A CHINESE BANQUET. Mr. George Kennan, who travelled through Siberia and China in 1887, has been lecturing ou his adventures in the United States.. He gives the following account of a Chinese dinner to which ha had the honour to receive an invitation : The first course consisted of seaweed boiled. Then followed a course of shredn of cold meat in jelly , another of mush rooms ; still another of salad onions j then thin slices of sausage apparently, followed by a dish composed of eggs, These were succeeded by crawfish tails, and the final course of cold dishes was evidently a long fronded seaweed. Be tween each course a servant filled small cups set by each plate with hot riCQ brandy.

PHOTOGRAPHY AND CRIME. [Newspaper Article] — Gisborne Gazette — 22 May 1914

PHOTOGRAPHY AND CHIME. <9> cr When one comes to think of it, photo* graphy lias proved a most valuable ac cessory to t'ne police. It may be said indeed, that photography a::d the tele graph have quite revolutionised detective work. It is well known that photograph? sf well-known criminals are sent round io the country police from time to time, from London, but it is not so well un derstood that important documents con nected with big cases are almost invar iably photographed. During the Tichborne trial every page of original paper connected with the case was photographed, as were the hands, ears, and otherpeculiarities of the Claimant himself. Numerous forgeries have been discov «red by means of photography. When a cheque is suspected, the photograph is photographed in a greatly magnified form. This reveals the laborous at tempts of the forger to imitate the signa ture, such attempts being difficult to de tect when the forgery is of its natural size.

EARLY RISING. [Newspaper Article] — Gisborne Gazette — 22 May 1914

EARLY RISING. Early rising is synonymous in long ife histories with short sleeping, which means rapid recovery from fatigue, a sign of bodily strength. These scientific facts in no wise contra dict the alleged value of early rising as a practice to be cultivated by all persons iu good health. It is excellent as moral discipline, aad eminently healthy as a matter of fact. Most persons will eat three meals daily. When a man gets up late those meals will probably follow each other at too short intervals to be wholesome. When he is an early riser it will probably be otherwise. He can enjoy a good breakfast, and by the time for his lunch or mid-day dinner he will have an honest appetite again.

NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Gisborne Gazette — 29 May 1914

iSTOT.liS, Saturday's game was the best yet, The pace maintained was surprising. No better game lias been witnessed at Riddell for many a long day. . On every occasion during the past two j seasons that Gisbome hare played at I Riddell, the ground has been in a terrible state, It was a pleasant surprise to see it in such good order on Saturday. What happened the usually reliable forwards— Y ouug and Perkins —on Saturday ? They missed some ridiculously easy chances, What sterling players the two Simmies are! They are both fast and clever. W. Simmie showed great paca on Satur day. It is a pity he was not opposed to Amess. The new, men ill the team were Alf. Gardiner, Alick Aird and Geo. Maggs. They are all good men, but were in need of training. Eraser was not so good as against Sun bury, The hrst quarter's following against the wind told its tale. A. Pretty played gamely on Saturday, when he showed his usual clever hand ball. The play of Johnson and White was in marked contrast to th...

EMPIRE DAY DONATIONS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE GAZETTE. [Newspaper Article] — Gisborne Gazette — 29 May 1914

EMPIRE DAY DONATIONS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE GAZETTE. ' die,—ihe action of the Eulla Shire j Council, at their last meeting, in the dis posal of the donations to the schools for the Empire celebrations, surely requires a little explanation. According to the press reports, the council donated £1 each to a number of schools in the district and £2 to the Sunbury State school, on con dition that they iuvited the children at tending the local lloman Gatholic schools. .Now Sir, I would like to know why was this patronising air adopted towards the children attending St Mary's school and not those at the State school ? In other places the money is voted to each school, and it is left for those in charge of the school to decide how it is to be expended. Surely money that is drawn from all classes of the community, without regard to creed or nationality, ought to be dis- j tributed on a more equitable basis than that.— lours, etc., A PAKENT.

By ''Enthusiast" In beautiful -weather, a large contin gent of Cxisborne supporters accompanied ohe team to liiddell on Saturday last, and \vere rewarded by witnessing a fin a ex uibitiou of fast aud clever football, which ivas marred somewhat at the finish by several players on both sides resorting to unfair use of the elbows and, as a result of the high pressure at which the game ivas played, a short display of fisticuffs 1 followed. The umpire, however, showed excellent judgment in the circumstances, tor " he wisely bounced the ball in the centre of the disturbance, and the players forgot their grievances in their haste to get possession of the ball. It was a ^ood display of football from start to anish, and seldom within the last few years has there been such a fast game played ou the Jttiddell ground, A strong .vind in the first quarter enabled Hiddeli iO go off with a rush, and they soored 4 goals 2 behinds in...

ROBERT FULTON'S FIRST PADDLE-WHEJii BOAT. It was said of the boy Robert Fulton <hat he was what might be called & dull icholar, and once when chided by his teacher for his inattention to his studies he replied that his head was so foil of original notions that there was no vaeaut place to atora away the contents of dutty books. One of the neighbours of his father, one Dcnter Grumpp, was very fond of fiahing-, and he had built for this pur« pose a fiat-bottomed boat or scow, and he used to avail himself of the labours of his son Christopher and his iieiphboa^'s jon Robert to aid him in his pursuit, by getting them, to poie the boat over tho waters of the Conestoga, whila he fish* potyd the perch and tho bass into Ihs boat.
