2 January 1883 Poem

A New Year's Even Reverie.
Another hour and the bells will ring Out the old year;
Another hour and the bells will ring- In the New Year.
Ring, ring ye bells!
Let the old year die.
Make way! Make way;
The New Year's nigh.
Joy and sorrow did the old year bring;
Then cups were filled up,
Up to the brim.
What will the New year bear?
Ah, much I ween, tho' her brow is fair, Sorrow and care.
Years have died; years been born;
Joyous smiles had lit the morn of the New year's birth;
But ah! How dimmed has the smile been worn before its death.
Thus we live, thus we die,
Hoping for something that's always nigh, but never comes;
Yet hope lives on tho' we grieve and sigh.
Hope never, never. "no, never" dies.

At the Education Board Meeting:
Uncertificated Teachers.
Letter read from the Matawhero
Committee (Poverty Bay, recommending that a certificated teacher be employed at this school.
In reply the Inspector stated that the present master Mr BOLTON, had tried three times to get his examination, but had always failed.
The average attendance was only 70, but it should be more like 140.

The Inspector stated there were two other schools in a similar position, Frasertown and Meanee. The masters of these schools were appointed on condition that they passed their certification certificates in January, but neither had presented himself. Mr FRASER of Frasertown, had given no reason for his failure, Mr MABBETT of Meanee, had stated that he was not well enough at
the time, and had been unable to prepare himself. Both masters did good work, except on the training of pupil teachers.
The Board decided that the masters of both schools, having failed to carry out conditions of appointment, receive three months notice.

About 8 o'clock in the morning he got out of bed to have some gruel, and was sitting on a sofa, when he suddenly called out and fell forward dead. The jury returned a verdict that death had resulted from natural causes.
