ROMANCE OF NZ LIFE
Of all the romances of real life the unusual experiences of a lady of Normanby (Taranaki) (recently published in a local paper) may be placed on record among the most remarkable. Twenty-one years of age and with the brightest prospects in life, Mrs G. A. Eagles has nevertheless found herself in a serious predicament. To the pressman who called at her home (Normanby-road, Normanby), she said with charming frankness:- "I am just 21, and was born in the Clutha district, having resided in Hawera and Normanby for 12 years. For years I did not enjoy good health. I became anaemic. My strength failed, mu face grew pale and I suffered from severe headaches and prostration. I lost my appetite and hardly dared perform domestic duties. I grew so ill that doctors were consulted and I took medicines for five months, only obtaining temporary relief. Then I commenced Dr Williams' pink pills. Two boxes improved me so greatly that I continued them and before long regained perfect health. I am now quite strong, have a good appetite, sleep well, and every trace of anaemia has vanished. My recovery is, I am sure, entirely due to Dr Williams' pink pills.
If we feed and enrich the blood, for which Dr Williams' pink pills are especially famed, we check anaemia (from which Mrs Eagles suffered) and ward off and cure indigestion, sluggish liver, debility, nervous ailments like St Vitus dance, neuralgia and paralysis. Dr Williams' pink pills also cure rheumatism, sciatica, bronchitis, chest and lung troubles, but they must be the genuine, bearing the full name in red and white wrapper. Sold by the Dr Williams' Medicine Co., Wellington, three shillings per box, six boxes sixteen and six, post free, and by chemists and storekeepers.
NOTE People in NZ back in the late 19th, early 20th century, were paid a small fee to make such adverts for Dr Williams. Whether they were afflicted as they said or were enterprising enough to make a few pounds is unknown. The ad for her continuing good health was still going in 1903

He coolly picked up the severed member and held it firmly against the bleeding stump for some minutes, innocently thinking it would stick back on, before he reported that he had been injured. The surgeon who attended stated that the act probably saved him from bleeding to death

OBITUARY
of Mr H. E. READE. The death has occurred at New Plymouth of Mr Herbert E. Reade, at the age of 73. Born at Whangarei, he was the only son of the late Mr James Reade, of Auckland. Much of his early life was spent on his father's extensive run in the extreme north of the Dominion, from Awanui toward North Cape. His account of his experiences of station life of 60 years ago with the then Maori occupants of these lands was of great interest. At 16 years of age he was sent to jersey (Channel Islands) to complete his education. Returning to New Zealand he entered engineering works in Auckland. From there he came to New Plymouth and married. He entered the building trade and only recently retired from active work. He is survived by Mrs Reade and a sister, Mrs Wintle, of Parnell (his sister Florence (1879-1955) married Walter Wintle (1866-1969)

He and a shipmate, Harman, were fishing on the Gladstone wharf at 7.30 at night when they were knocked into the shark-infested water by a passing, empty meat truck, drawn by horses.

NOTE The William Davie brought 294 passengers. 36 married couples, 71 children, 116 single men & 22 single women for Bluff. A Report of Inquiry by Commissioners on the Ship "William Davie" ..
.. The immigrant vessel 'William Davie' arrived at Bluff harbour on the 12th instant, at 11.30a.m. From inquiry the Commissioners learned that the health of the immigrants during the voyage had been very good; that the provisions had been good and were served out in accordance with the dietary scale and to the entire satisfaction of the surgeon-superintendent' that the supply of water was ample, the distilling apparatus having worked well; that the conduct of the immigrants in each compartment had been very good and that the immigrants were all of the labouring class and, as a whole, very fairly adapted to meet the wants of the Colony. The few exceptions (the most notable being a case of cancer in the stomach, which rendered the sufferer not only unfit for employment, but a probable burden on the district for support) were the result, as we learn, of any chance of inspection on the part of the surgeon-superintendent being precluded, owing to the immigrants being put on board at dusk, just as the vessel was sailing.
From personal investigation, the Commissioners ascertained that the ship in all its compartments was thoroughly clean and remarkably free from disagreeable smells, carbolic powder being well used throughout the voyage.
That the compartments were arranged according to contract; as also the hospitals, of which there were three in number.
That a bath-room, with proper appliances, had been provided in the single women's compartment, in which were two closets, besides eight others on deck for the married and single men.
So far from there being any complaints, all the immigrants spoke in grateful terms of the kindness and attention they had received throughout the voyage from the captain, doctor and officers of the ship.
The total number of adults landed at the Bluff was 240, four adults electing to go on to Dunedin and Christchurch to join their friends, making in all 244 adults.
The surgeon-superintendent reports nine deaths during the voyage (all children) and four births. Two children died of bronchitis after the anchor was dropped.
The arrangement fixing the berths fore=and=aft in all the compartments, instead of athwart ships, is one which deserves special remark and commendation. Not only did all add greatly to the comfort of the immigrants while in their bunks, by modifying the motion of the ship, particularly in bad weather, but gave a larger space in the compartments to move about in during the day and enabled each mess to have, as it were, a small compartment of its own in which the meals were eaten, with a sliding table, which, when not required, could be lifted and fastened close to the roof of the cabin. The whole arrangements of the three compartments, it would, in our opinion, be advisable to adopt in all immigrant vessels.

WEDDING BELLS - CALLAGHAN-AUSTIN

A quiet but pretty wedding took place at the Roman Catholic Church, Stratford, on Wednesday last, 4th, when Miss Johanna Callaghan, eldest daughter of Mr and Mrs John Callaghan, of Finnerty Road, Ngaere and late postmistress of Ngaere, was married to Mr James Austin, eldest son of the late Mr James Austin and Mrs Austin, of Glasgow, Scotland.

The Rev Father Tracey performed the ceremony. The bride, who was given away by her brother, Mr C.(Cornelius) Callaghan, was attired in a pretty dress of silver-grey ciolienne, made with pointed tunic and trimmed with silver-grey Oriental trimming, transport yoke of lace outlined with shaded rucheel ribbon to match. She wore a black velvet hat, with grey wings and carried a shower bouquet of white jonquils, white narcissus and asparagus fern.

The bride was attended, as bridesmaid, by her youngest sister, Miss Doris Callaghan, who wore a creme radianta with Peter Pan lace collar and cuffs, black chip hat, with white plumes and touch of cerise; she also carried a posy bouquet of white flowers and maiden hair foliage and wore a gold bangle, the gift of the bridegroom. Mr P. O'Reilly acted as best man. The bridegroom's gift to the bride was a set of silver-backed brushes, comb and hand mirror, in case. The bride's gift to the bridegroom was gold double Albert chain.

The wedding presents were numerous and costly, showing the esteem in which the bride was held and included a handsome case of solid silver afternoon tea spoons and sugar tongs from the guards of the Hawera-New Plymouth section of the railway department.

In the evening Mr and Mrs James Austin left by motor for their future home at Opee road, Opunake.
The bride's going-away dress was a navy blue tailored costume, creme silk voile blouse, trimmed with rich silk insertion, brown tuscan hat with brown ribbon

* JEAN ELIZABETH Carey
Jean was born 16 Feb 1914
.. A week before her first birthday Jean was struck down with polio. There followed years of treatment in hospital at Trentham, where the medical technology of the day did its feeble best. But the scourge of polio left Jean with one leg 1½ inches shorter than the other. She did not walk until she was five and then with the aid of a heavy boot and calliper to the thigh. But her glowing spirit was already apparent. She was chosen during a later stay at the hospital, to present a bouquet to Lady Alice Fergusson, wife of the Governor-General, who was paying a visit.
Jean did most of her schooling in Patea. She learnt piano from her aunt 'Gert' Carey who was a double diploma holder (Doreen Louisa Gertrude 'Gert' Edwards, A.T.C.L., L.T.C.L4, married Alfred Arnold Carey) and Jean herself became an Associate of the Trinity College of Music.
Jean was a cheerful, willing and positive woman whose disability was not a factor in the way she lived her life, one of usefulness and service to others. She managed a Patea clothing factory for a time, was a leader of the Girl Guides, organist at St George's Anglican Church for many years and took her share in other community activities. She became an apprentice tailor with Jack Dempsey at his shop in Egmont Street and then moved to Wellington ..more at her link

At the waistline in the back was a true lover's knot of pleated satin, which was inlet into the lace, the ends reaching to the long train. From a dainty orange blossom tiara fell a beautiful hand-embroidered tulle veil which formed a second train. Her bouquet was of chrysanthemums, carnations, helibore and maidenhair fern.
In attendance were Mrs G. Cosford (sister Nellie), sister of the bride and Miss B. Thomason, Cambridge, who were frocked alike in reseda green georgette ankle-length frocks. The skirts came to a point in the centre of the bodices in front. Tiny self buttons trimmed the back and finished at the belt. An unusual note was introduced in the shirred yolks, shirred puffed sleeves and shirred hemlines, forming a scalloped effect. Their smart hats were in stiffened reseda green net, trimmed with scarlet velvet ribbon and flowers. Their shoes were also scarlet and they carried beautiful bouquets of scarlet flowers and berries.
Little Cherry Campbell, Patea, cousin of the bride, was a picture in a sweet ankle-length frock of green sprigged organdie with a scarlet velvet sash and a tiny scarlet bow trimmed the neck.
