Easily Caught. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 12 September 1916

Easily Caught. v A The New Zealand kakapo, or large parrot, with all its credit for brains, allows itself to be caught in a very Bimple manner. In ,the dusk of the early dawn the Maories, carrying«. tame kakapos tied to long sticks, set oflyto hunt. These are the call birds used, to attract by their scrcams the .Targe flocks of kakapos flying overhead. While one Maori tethers the call-birds by the leg, and sets them screaming to the full ex tent of their lusty lungs, another cuts as many perches as there are men in the hunting party from the neighbouring bush. By means of flax bands these are lashed -firmly to dif ferent ^arts of a little hut or 'whare' (in which the hunters secrete them selves), so as to act as perches for the unsuspecting birds. Each perch is so fixed that it can be drawn, down into the 'whare' through, the roof. On the perches are placed running nooses of flax, and when all is pre-: pared, each Maori sits quietly within the 'whare' with his flax cord in his hand ...

SUPERFLUOUS WEALTH. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 12 September 1916

SUPERFLUOUS WEALTH. The mean man was going on a holiday, and at tlje busy London station the cabman had assisted his fare to carry his various hampers and packages to the departure plat form, for which he received two pence over and above the bare (ate. He waited until the "twonenny tipper" had ensconced himself in a corner of the comfortably-filled com partment, then, hat in hand, ap proached the carriage. Holding out the coppers, he said, with biting sarcasm :— "It's very kind of you, Mr. Carne gie, and all of us cabmen are very grateful ; but we don't need no li braries just now, so I've brought you the money back." The .mean man winced but made no reply. "Oh, very well, Mr. Carnegie," ob served the sleek and ruddy Jehu, "seein-' as 'ow you're so pet on chuck in' yer wealth about I'll keep it. I'll build no free libraries with it, but in case such generosity is ketchin1 I'll lay it out in brimstone and fumigats the' cab.1'
