River Bank Protection. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 11 March 1898

River Bank Protection. Sie,— Seeing an interesting leader in your puper on Friday last, regarding river bauk erosion, I venture to give my opinion. I have studied the subject for many years and the result of my observations may bo of use to your many readers. Protecting river banks at such places as Palmer's Island is— I am well aware— a costly work. But to do the work so as to be permanent should be the aim of those in ^''?^ta1- v* ~vm** uuu^tuaiugo, i^uaij wuuu Lucy may. Protecting tho top bank should be a secondary con sideration. The under bank should be first pro tected in all such places as Palmer's Island, where tho channel is being forced towards the shore by tho current froin above coming direct against it. In such places the bank on the opposite side is making out channolwards very fast on account of tho eddies ?which tho land above causes, and this helps the channel to force itself on to tho losing bunk by narrowing tho stream and increasing its force. It may be noticed t...

Aldermanic Vacancy. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 11 March 1898

Aldermanic Vacancy. Section 42 of the Municipalities Act requires every alderman to sign & declaration of office within 14 days after notice of his election has beon given as provided for in the Act. We understand that Mr. James Dowling, who was elected as alderman for Maclean at the recent election, has neglected to comply with this section, and his seat is therefore vacant, necessitating another election. A similar case has occured at Potorsham, where Alderman Moseley, who was re-elected at the recent annual election, Was absent in New Zealand and did not sign tho declaraton within the pre scribed time.

SUCCESS AND FAILURE. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 11 March 1898

SUCCESS AND FAILURE. Seize an opportunity as it is pre sented. Chances are offered once, and seldom recur. Success depends on apparently trivial circumstances, which oftentimes bring great results. Failure is made up of speeches care lessly slipped from the tongue, wise thoughts not spoken, good messages not sent, courteous words and con siderate greetings not uttered, want of care for others, too little decision of character or too great obstinacy, angry denunciations hastily made, phantom fears, unfounded jealousy, kind acts not done. The same good qualities that ensure success may, if perverted from their true course, equally well lead on to failure. ' Sweet are the uses of ad versity, which, like a toad, ugly and venomous, hides yet a precious jewel in its head.' The same determination and inflexible resolve which lend Napoleonic power may, if converted into needless impetuosity, lead to life long loss, disgrace and dishonour worse than death, eternal ruin. Who shall count the c...
