Evening Post, 10 June 1898 - WELLINGTON DIVORCE COURT
Alice Maud Moseley v Harold C. Moseley, for dissolution of marriage from her husband at present residing in Taranaki. The object of the respondent defending the case was to retain the custody of the two children of the marriage, who had been, and were still, with him. The petitioner gave evidence of her marriage with the respondent before the Registrar at Wellington in March, 1892, and made general allegations of cruelty. She had been separated from her husband for nearly two years, and he was, she declared, now living with another woman. She did not intend to ask for the custody of the children as she was not in a position to maintain them. Therefore the suit might be regarded as practically undefended.

The old couple are in excellent health.
The weather was beautiful for the occasion of the celebration and there were about thirty guests present, all old friends of the family.
The rooms were decorated with red, white, and blue, and the tables with golden-coloured flowers, the flags of the Allies holding a prominent position in the centre of the table. There were two wedding cakes; one was given by their grandson, Archie Cooper, and the other was brought from Australia.
The Rev Mr Heron kindly officiated, giving a short address, and making reference to the high esteem in which Mr and Mrs Krieg were held by the community. Then he made the presentations, which were in the form of two beautifully bound combined church prayer-books and a silver cake dish, suitably inscribed, form the parishioners, and a purse of sovereigns from the family, also many other gifts.
Mr Gorrie proposed the health of the happy couple and family, the Rev Mr Heron proposed the health of the King, and Mrs Sharp (youngest daughter) responded on behalf of the parents and family.
The occasion ended with the singing of the doxology and the National Anthem.

Suicides, New Zealand - January 1923

the known January 1923 suicides, or attempted suicides, in New Zealand
The objective here is to record names and the districts they lived in and to present the facts surrounding their reasons as they were presented at the time (as opposed to notoriously incorrect stories that families have passed down through generations - aka Chinese Whispers).
Please be aware that in those days, unlike today, the newspapers reported the events very graphically, just as they happened. Links have been provided to read the details of such stories. Caution is recommended for those who are sensitive.

As at time of writing Papers Past is experiencing problems loading pages (sometimes due to traffic overload) and the links may take forever to open or not open at all. Try again at a later time

A number of suspicious outbreaks of fire have recently been causing concern amongst business men. Last week an attempt was made to set fire to business premises occupied by a Chinese fruiterer. Police investigations resulted in the arrest of Clive Joseph NOBLE, aged 17 (1906-1984), a messenger in the Feilding Fire Brigade. Noble was before the Court this morning, and was remanded till next Thursday. The accused's father applied for bail, and in the course of a speech to the Bench said the boy had admitted to the police having committed the deed which was the subject of the charge.
