Verse of The Day
“Na i te ono o nga marama ka tonoa a Kapariera, te anahera, e te Atua ki tetahi pa o Kariri, ko Nahareta te ingoa, Ki tetahi wahine i taumautia ma tetahi tangata, ko Hohepa te ingoa, no te whare o Rawiri; ko te ingoa o te wahine ko Meri. Na, ko tona haerenga ki roto, ki a ia, ka mea, Tena koe, e te wahine kua manakohia nei; kei a koe te Ariki: ko koe te manaakitia i roto i nga wahine.” (Luke 1:26-28)

The following were nominated and declared elected as the nominations did not exceed the number required Messrs Shoebridge, Mason, Elwart, Blott,. Wellington, F. Gilbert and Ferguson were elected. At the first meeting of committee held immediately after, Mr Shoebridge was elected chairman and Mr Blott secretary for the current year.


I regret to have to report an accident to Mr Mcllhone, clerk to Messrs Elwart and Kreutzen, which occurred on Sunday afternoon. Riding from Whangarei his saddle turned and threw him, hurting one of his arms. The doctor could not say if it was broken or not, as it was much swollen.

Wanted- A Ferry

Whose fault is it that there is no ferry now at Ngunguru is hard to say.

Whose fault is it that there is no ferry now at Ngunguru is hard to say. The hotelkeeper says he cannot afford to keep a man for the purpose and pay an advance on his license. So the fault must come on the County Council. The Kaitea [Kaiatea?} road is now impassable. Formally (sic) there was a subsidy of 10 allowed, when it was stopped I do not know.

Church Service

The Eev. C. Marsh held divine service here on Sunday last. In the morning he had a Maori service at Mr Wellington's, in afternoon an English service in the school. Both services were very well attended, and highly appreciated.
