Bush Advocate, 29 April 1902 Mr T. M. Mills, the popular proprietor of the Dannevirke-Herbertville line of mail coaches, notifies that he has taken over the new stables at Mr J. Halligan's Club Hotel. The stables have been fitted up with every convenience and as Mr Mills has numerous horses and a large plant, he is in a position either to hire out saddle horses or vehicles on the shortest notice. Horses will be broken to saddle or harness as desired and are bought, sold, or exchanged
Bush Advocate, 11 April 1903 Messrs Collett and Edkins, coachbuilders and ironfounders, have just completed to the order of Mr T. N. MILLS, of the Club Hotel Stables, a drag which the latter intends running regularly between Dannevirke and Mangatera for the conveyance of passengers. The vehicle is well-constructed and will seat twenty-four persons. The top of the vehicle has been framed with Australian blackwood and is pannelled with kauri. It has a full-lock platform and under-gear, has six springs, is fitted with Collinge's patent axles and has a removable top, this being suitable for picnic parties. The vehicle has been artistically painted by Mr Horton (one of Messrs Collett and Edkins employees), the colours selected being green for the body with dark lake picked with gold, the fine lines being in orange. The under-gear is painted yellow, picked out with chocolate and fine lined with blue. The seats are upholstered in maroon leather. A feature of the drag is that it is fitted up with a powerful double break which grips both the front and back of the wheels. Mr Mills is to be commended for his enterprise in securing such a useful vehicle and he will, doubtless, meet the reward he deserves
