PARS ABOUT NOTABILITIES. [Newspaper Article] — Auckland Star — 8 December 1906
PARS ABOUT NOTABILITIES. The King spends no less than £3000 a year on wedding presents. Thomas A. Edison has never carried a watch. He never cares, lie says, what time it is. '•'Shakespeare's autograph is the rarest,&quot; says a dealer. &quot;There are only seven in existence, and three of these are doubtful. The best is in the British Museum, in a translation of Montaigne. It cost £3000,. and would sell readily to-day for £5000. The two next best are in conveyances of property. Three are in Shakespeare's will, but two of these are doubtful, and there is a doubtful one in the folio edition of his plays.&quot; One who is admittedly in the foremost rank of experts in international questions is now in London. This is the new Italian Ambassador, the Marquis of San Giuliano, who in October presented his credentials to the King at Buckingham Palace. The Marquis is by birth a Sicilian and in his fiftyfourth year. Having chosen politics as a career he gave special s...

HOW THE SULTAN LIVES. [Newspaper Article] — Auckland Star — 8 December 1906
HOW THE SULTAN LIVES. A BtUDBN TO HJLMSHLJ! , . All kinds of rumours are ettll- current regarding the health of the &quot; saltan Abdul Uainld, and, in spite of his reappearance at the Selainllk on the last two Fridays, there is no doubt that his condition is far from brilliant. It is, of course, extremely dintcult to get accurate information about a man who, like the Pope, sits a willing prisoner, behind the walls and bars of his palace. But the XUdiz Kiosk resembles no palace In the world. For three-quarters of a. century-the ..building of this enormous.complexe went on Interruptedly, and It Is not finished yet. It Iβ an endless moss or email houses, kiosks, and palaces from the Merassim Palace, built specially in ]K)8 for the accommodation of the German Emperor, to the &quot;Petit Trianon,&quot; a little palace which owed its existence to some Oriental Pompadour or Montespan. -Within the trails of Yildiz Kiosk there is everything. There are cow stalls and ...

The course chosen, was between Honiton and. Exeter,. a distance of 16 miles, and' this'the pony was to cover six times, with aa additional four miles to eomolete .the hundred.

My Humble Opinion [Newspaper Article] — Auckland Star — 8 December 1906
My Humble Opinion I PIEKOT. I THE SOCIAL BLACKING BRUSH. &quot;Wert thou as chaste as ice, as pure as snow, thoii shalt not 'scape calumny.&quot; So wrote Shakespeare, and seeing into the heart oi things, he rang in these few words the knell of destiny. Kemember, it is absolutely and literally true that there is not one man alive, no matter how innocent, how noble, ay, and how heroic, but sooner or later shall have his character smirched ;by one or other of his fellow creatures. And it is a strange but undoubted fact, that* perhaps the greatest of all crimes in the blasting of a fair reputation, is of all the commonest. Have we not all met a quiet-looking old dame, witn all the status of white hairs and a peaceful countenance who has spread the poison of slander as innocently and unconsciously as she spreads the butter on your bread? Tome, I have to admit, she loses at once the credit due to her white hairs and her peaceful countenance and joins the army of unofficia...
CRICKET. [Newspaper Article] — Auckland Star — 8 December 1906
CRICKET. The selection committee of the A.C.A. had a difficult task to carry out,'and it has done its work well, and with satisfaction to the cricketing public. Of course, there are plenty of dissatisfied critics, but to please all is impossible. The bowling -of the side is &quot;Varied, the batting is sound, and the fielding, on the whole, is fair. I would have liked to have seen both P. White and MacCormick in the team, but the question is, who would make wav for them? Sale starts so scratchily that he might be suggested, but once going, there is no better bat here, and his fielding is so good that he saves many runs that would ordinarily be lost, while he is a certain catch, and returns splendidly. He has done nothing noteworthy with the bat this season so far, but I would be very loth to see him out of the team. Mac- Cormick has done good work this season and one is sorry at his exclusion. P. White has bowled , with great success, but he is at this disadvantage compared ...

ROWING. 'North Shore Club have recently purchased new .pleasure boats for the , useij of their honorary members. The boats are a-nice useful size, withvplenty of beam, and though light tliey look substantial. . , *-&quot; •: , '&quot;'■ &gt; In my last week's column I predicted winning crews at the forthcoming'Ponsonby Regatta. Unfortunately,' the headings, &quot;Maiden lOst. and-under,&quot; and &quot; Maiden open &quot; somehow became transposed. The paragraph should read: &quot;Maidens (open), Auckland 1, West End 2, Waitemata 3, Maidens (lOst. and under), Waitemata 1, North Shore 2, West End 3.&quot; It is estimated that the expenses of the sculling match between James Stanbury, of &lt;New South Wales, and Webb, of Wanganui, will amount to £300, and £103 has been subscribes by the public. The race will take place up the Wanganui River. It is intended to make the event in the nature of a picnic. Boats...
SAILING. [Newspaper Article] — Auckland Star — 8 December 1906
SAILING. The yacht races of the two Devon- ! port-dubs on Saturday formed a &quot;sttik- ; ing picture. There were sixty or seventy boats clustered at the start, and as the wind was moderate they canied every stitch of canvas they could muster, and I doubt very much if a prettier sight has been seen, even at the regattas. ' jf ■ ■ The Devonport Yacht 'Club members are co well pleased with the way the flagship was patronised that they have decided that in future a suitable boat will be provided for visitors at all their harbour races. ' The proceedings on board the flagship last Saturday were enlivened by music supplied -by the Devonport brass band. , The races of both clubs were evenlyv contested, and some of the finishes -were remarkably close. The pride of place in this respect goes to the Devonport club. In the patiki race and that for centre-board boats between 22ft. end 26ft., seconds only separated the first two or three' boats, while in some of the other events the ya...
BOWLING. [Newspaper Article] — Auckland Star — 8 December 1906
BOWLING. The Waitemata Bowling Club are holding -their season's opening function this afternoon, for which a large number of invitations have been issued and every preparation made, so far as is possible, to ensure success. The somewhat backward state of the green led the club to defer full play upon it until the present time, but I am assured that its playing value has been immensely improved by this action, and Is very much in advance of what it was last year.
MOTOR BOATS. [Newspaper Article] — Auckland Star — 8 December 1906
MOTOR BOATS. The Power Boat Association held a launch picnic at Lake Takapuna on Saturday afternoon. last, fifteen boats attending. A large number of boats, were out in the gull on Sunday inorning for fishing but had to run. back for shelter in t'ne i afternoon, owing* to a strong northerly springing up. Not many boats went further afield, the only ones I know of i being the &quot;feeisna,. Matareka, and Rahutai, which were at. Mateatea.

No one likes to impute motives, hut it seems to mc that there. is something m,ore than a disinterested regard for the sub-unions behind Mr. Mclntyre's .proposal that, on 'beating the provincial union the former body . shall hold , the Kanfurly Shield. 1 may be wrong, but it strikes; mc that,. having failed to capture the Shield from united Auckland, Mr. Mc- Intyre. wants to take us in sections, and in a less important fixture secure the coveted trophy.

ATHLETICS. Entries for the A.A,A. and CC Carnival close to-night at the. Sports' Club. Good fields are assured, and a first-class afternoon's sport will be provided. The carnival takes place a fortnight from today, and it is to be hoped that the public will respond to the efforts of the energetic committee, who have left n_o stone unturned to secure a revival In sport for sport's sake. The future of amateur athletics in 4/uekland depends in no small degree on the success of this meeting, for no committee, no matter how enthusiastic, can face continued apathy and discouragement. B. R. Day, the Scotch athlete- -who was to race A. B. Postls on Wednesday, ■was credited with beating the 300 ydsworld's record at the Bunbury (W.A.) sports last week. One account of the race 6ays that' everything ivas in order, another that the track was 3ft short. As the result of the mail vote, which* las been taken, the association affiliated to the Amateur.
