A Domestic Difficulty
A Napier Woman stabs her Husband
A stabbing occured in Carlyle St, when a man named William ROSE, who is the father of a grown up family was assaulted with a knife by his wife, Catherine ROSE.
It appears that he had finished work, went home and met his wife in the passage and asked for his tea, with the result that she used some very strong language and on ROSE responding, she stabbed him in the face with a knife and attempted to stab him in the breast, but without success. ROSE secured the knife, got his face attended to by Dr CARO and went around to the police station, where he acquainted Const. FELTON with the facts. The constable and ROSE went to his house, but on their arrival there, the woman would not let them in. The constable secured admission, but was threatened with a warm time, for the woman picked up a four foot poker and threatened to hit him with it. The constable took the article from her and arrested her on a charge of unlawfully stabbing her husband, but it was with great difficulty that he could get her to leave the house, she having a child in her arms ( belonging to the wife of a Chinaman at Meanee, who was now in hospital) which she would not leave.The next door neighbour consented to look after the little one and the woman. ROSE was taken to the police station. She was taken before W.R. BLYTHE JP at the Police Court this morning and remanded on the application of Inspector KIELY

Weber Affair
Early on Wednesday morning the coroner, Mr S. JOHNSON JP proceeded to Weber to hold an inquest upon the body of George LUNN. When within about two miles of the township he met Mr G.D. HAMILTON & Col HERRICK and was informed that those gentleman had held the inquest the previous day. Under those circumstances the coroner could do nothing but retrace his steps.
It was elicited at the inquest that LUNN's death was the result of a blow from a blunt instrument, such as a piece of wood. Dr RIDDELL who performed the post mortem- stated there was a clot of blood on the brain. The evidence went onto show some men were skylarking with NOLAN who got exasperated and struck LUNN over the head with a piece of wood. The jury committed the prisoner for trial upon a charge of manslaughter. The reason of the inquest being held in such a hurry was, so we are informed, because the body showed signs of decomposition. Const LAWLESS took the prisoner away to Wainui intending to take him on to Waipukurau via Porangahau

Miss H. NEILSEN, daughter of Jacob NEILSEN and Mr W. SCHAARE, the son of T. SCHAARE, both of Makotuku were married yesterday at 2 pm, the Rev A.S. WEBB officiating.
The ceremony took place in the English Church and a number of the fair sex were present. The bride dressed in a becoming dress of an old gold color, trimmed with brown and she wore the orthodox wreath of orange blossoms and veil. Everything went off smoothly in connection with the ceremony, but Mr SANDELL's child had to be taken out of the church on account of it having a fit. It was taken down to the Makotuku Hotel and put in a warm bath and Mr HYDE sent for and eventually, seemed to be progressing very favourably.
At seven in the evening the invited guests assembled in the Foresters Hall, to the number of 25 couples, to do justice to the dinner that had been provided by Mr NEILSEN, the father of the bride. Mr FERGUSON took the chair and also charge of the toast list. Through some misunderstanding the musician had not arrived. Eventually a violinist was procurred and Mr J. BARBER undertook the office of Master of Ceremonies. By the amount of spooning, it would be imagined that the marriage bells would ring again ere long. Dancing was kept up till about 4.30 this morning when all adjourned to snatch a few hours rest before commencing work once more

Charles ROYTHORNE has fallen from his horse, cutting his face very severely.

Mr R.J. DEIGHTON who died at Wairoa the other day was one of the earliest settlers, he having in company with his brother S. DEIGHTON RM in the Chatham Islands, arrived in Wellington in Jan 1840 in one of the first ships of the New Zealand Co.

It is with great sorrow that we chronicle the death of Charles HYDE of Ormondville. During his stay in Ormondville he practised as a dentist and chemist.

Mr Charles HIGGINS, Crown Hotel, Norsewood, made an unsuccessful attempt to commit suicide on Monday morning. Mrs HIGGINS and her daughter were working in the kitchen. Miss HIGGINS went to find her father she found him hanging from the landing by a military sword strap, one end was fastened to the rails. She called her mother and then ran next door and told Mr O. ERICKSEN, who came in immediately accompanied by Mr BRIESKE. Mr ERICKSEN lifted the weight off the strap whilst Mr BRIESKE cut it and together they lowered Mr HIGGINS who seemed to be in the last stages of strangulation. Means to rescuitate the man were successful, but it was not until and hour and a half later that any hopes of his recovery were entertained. Mr SIDDELLS and friends did what they could, his mind seemed quite deranged.
This morning we learn Mr HIGGINS appeared to have got all right and was attending to his work as usual
Thurs 19 June 1890

On Wednesday, the remains of Mr HYDE were carried to their last resting place. Upwards of a hundred people followed the deceased gentleman to the Ormondville Cemetery, There Rev A.S. WEBB conducted the very impressive funeral service of the Episcopalian Church.

Mr A.H. RIDD, who is at present residing in Pahiatua intends to carry on the business of the late Mr HYDE.

The little girl run over by a cart opposite the Danevirke School, was a daughter of Mr W. DEAN. Beyond a bruise the child was uninjured.
