The business of the well-known and old established Post-office Store, Taradale, which has for some years been kept by
Mr C.E. STEWART, has now been sold to Mr James SPENCE, of Carlyle-street, who will remove the stock to those larger and more commodious premises lately occupied by Mr T. JEFFARES opposite the Taradale Hotel. It is the intention of the new proprietor to carry on the Taradale store as a branch of his Napier business, and as he will keep a well assorted stock of all lines required in a country store he should obtain even a larger support than that accorded to his predecessor.

According to the recent census there are in the Hawke's Bay province (less Wairoa county) 28,924 persons exclusive of the Maori race generally, but including seven female Maoris, wives of Europeans, 118 half-castes, and 45 Chinese. Of the latter race 32 out of the total number reside in Hawke's Bay county.

A woman named Frances MIDDLETON was brought up at the R.M. Court on Saturday, charged with drunkenness. She denied the charge, and said it was illness that caused her to appear peculiar. She was "often taken like it." The evidence was very much against her theory, and she was fined 5s and costs.

HB Herald, Tues. May 12th 1891
Death -

Mr C.W. CATO, who for some time past has been assistant accountant at the Wellington branch of the Colonial Bank, is coming back again to Napier, as he has been promoted to the position of accountant of the branch of the Colonial Bank here. Mr CATO is expected to arrive in Napier this evening. Mr S.R. KENNEDY, the present accountant of the Napier branch, is transferred to Wellington, and will probably leave on Saturday. His place in musical and athletic circles will not readily be filled, as he has taken since his arrival in Napier an active part in the promotion of aquatics, other athletic sports, and musical matters.

The bell-ringing case to which we have previously referred came on for hearing at the R.M. Court yesterday.....The information, which was laid under the Police Offences Act, set out that the defendant George ROBINSON, did wantonly and maliciously cause annoyance by ringing a bell......Mr LASCELLES contended that the practice complained of did not come within the Police Offences Act. His Worship upheld that view. He said that if there were any bye-law to restrain bell-ringing it would be a very proper one, but he was satisfied that this ringing of a bell in the pursuit of an ordinary avocation did not come under the "malicious and wanton" clause of the Police Offences Act. If the Corporation had no bye law restricting bell-ringing, they should make one, but he would have to dismiss the present information.
HB Herald, Wed. Mary 13th 1891
William ROSE was yesterday brought up at the R.M. Court, charged with assaulting his wife by striking her on the head with a jug. Upon the application of the police the hearing of the charge was postponed till this morning.

A somewhat remarkable instance of prompt restoration of an article lost has been brought under our notice. Yesterday we inserted an advertisement notifying the loss of a gold brooch, and it had appeared in the Herald but a very few hours when the trinket was restored to the loser, Mrs HILL, at the Girls' High School. Mrs HILL, was naturally highly gratified, as the brooch was a valuable one, and she would gladly have paid a reward, but the finder handed in the brooch without even waiting for thanks.

Birth -
LANG - At Hastings, on the 13th May, Mrs A.C. LANG, of a son.

A case of poisoning which might have had serious results occurred at Clive last evening. Mr George STUBBS, it appears, had prepared a solution of a salt of arsenic with which to sprinkle his plants, and by mischance Mrs STUBBS used the solution in making tea. The consequence was that Mr and Mrs STUBBS, and two men named FLEMING and HOLMES who were working for Mr STUBBS, were seized with violent pains and excessive vomiting. Mr STUBBS and FLEMING came into town as quickly as possible, and having consulted Dr. INNES he sent them to the hospital. Dr. INNES then went out to Clive and attended to Mrs STUBBS and to HOLMES, both of whom were at a late hour last night doing well. The quantity of arsenic taken by each person was, we understand, about a quarter of an ounce.

William ROSE was brought up at the R.M. Court yesterday, before Messrs E. LYNDON and W.R. BLYTHE, J.P., charged with assaulting his wife by striking her on the head with a milk jug. Accused, who was represented by Mr SHEATH, pleaded not guilty. Mr CRESSWELL appeared in support of the information. Complainant deposed that during a quarrel between her and accused the latter picked up a jug and struck her on the head with it, breaking the jug, and causing her head to bleed very much. Accused told a very different story. He said that when he went home from work he found his wife drunk. There was a quarrel, during which she called him vile names and threw a jug at him. In running away she fell on the step and cut her forehead. The Bench preferred to believe the complainant, and sentenced accused to a month's hard labor, and further ordered him to find sureties to keep the peace for three months.
HB Herald, Fri. May 15th 1891
A deputation representing the directorate of the Hawke's Bay Farmers' Co-operative Association waited upon Messrs

He was taken into the Shakespeare Hotel, and Dr. MOORE having been sent for found that, though much bruised and cut, Mr SMITH had not sustained serious injury.

Hawke's Bay people have been asked to believe that Mr FITZROY, late Sheep Inspector, was dismissed for purposes of retrenchment. Considering that the vacancy was at once filled up, and that a Mr OLDHAM has been sent here to act as inspector, a natural query is - "Where does the retrenchment come in?"

A man named John MONTECINO was brought up at the R.M. Court on Saturday before Captain PREECE, R.M., charged with drunkenness and with using obscene language.

At 6.45 o'clock, when about to rise, the parents discovered that the child was apparently dead. Dr. de LISLE was sent for at once, but could do nothing, as he found that the child had been dead several hours. An inquest will be held to-day at Mr M'ALISTER's residence.

James MORRISON , who was charged with drunkenness at the railway station last week, and had his bail of 1 pound estreated, has applied for a rehearing of the charge. We understand that he considers himself unjustly treated, and alleges that he was not at the railway station at all on the day he was arrested. He also alleges that when he was in the lock-up he was kicked and maltreated. As the evidence given was to the effect that MORRISON was arrested at the railway station, after falling off the platform, his denial that he was there is a very direct issue to be decided if the re-hearing takes place.

An inquest was held yesterday at the Railway Hotel, Spit, on the body of James CURRAN, who died rather suddently yesterday morning. Captain PREECE was coroner, Mr W. DENHOLM was foreman of the jury, and Constable HARVEY conducted the inquiry on behalf of the police...........By order of the coroner, Dr. JARVIS made an examination of the body, and discovered that death was the result of fatty degeneration of the heart.

Our Woodville correspondent writes as follows under yesterday's date:-
The licensing committee for the ensuing three years was elected yesterday, and consists of Messrs HALL, SYMS, STACPOOLE, CRAWFORD, and HORNE, all moderate men. The local option poll decided against increases of any kind of licenses. The five hotels are therefore considered ample for the requirements of Woodville. In fact some think that two would suffice, and that there can be no real necessity for five hotels keeping open till 11 o'clock no one will deny, since no train or coach enters or leaves the township after 6.30 p.m.
HB Herald, Sat. May 30th 1891

The police stated that accused, who was a man who did no work, and was accustomed to stow himself away in outbuildings to sleep, was found in an unlet house shortly before daybreak on Thursday.

An accident of a somewhat sensational character happened to the Napier Taupo coach yesterday afternoon, but fortunately without any serious results. As the coach was leaving the stables at Kaiwaka the leading horses suddenly swerved and dragged the vehicle over a steep bank. The coach turned completely over, and the driver, Mr M'AULEY, was thrown from the box seat, as also were Mr JOYNT, of Nelson and Mr MACDONALD, of Christchurch, the latter falling with his legs under the wheels. The inside passengers, who consisted of Mr and Mrs HUTCHINSON and two daughters, and two Napier lads, were all thrown beneath the coach, and had not the stable groom rushed down the bank to the horses' heads the result would probably have been very serious indeed.........

A sad drowning accident occurred at the breakwater works yesterday. Several men were engaged in chipping the outer row of blocks, to make ready for getting down a monolith, there being only a moderate sea, although occasionally a rather heavy wave would break on the end of the work. Just before the accident happened Mr PALLISER told all the hands to leave off work on the blocks, as the tide was coming in.......One of the men, named Peter BLOM, either failed to grasp the rope or could not retain his hold upon it, and was washed off into the sea. As soon as possible a rope was thrown towards him, but he appeared senseless and sank. Mr J.T. CARR ran up to the end of the work, and after divesting himself of his heavier clothing dived into the sea several times.......The unfortunate man BLOM came to Hawke's Bay about 18 years ago, with the first lot of immigrants from Scandinavia, and was known as a hard working man. He leaves a widow and several children.

It is feared that a little girl named Kate TRAVERS has met with an untimely end. Her parents live at the southern end of the Marine-parade, near the residence of
Mr FRAME. Yesterday afternoon one of Mr FRAME's children went to Mrs TRAVERS' house, and asked if her two little ones could go out. A nurse girl was in charge of Mr FRAME's children, and Mrs TRAVERS, thinking her children would be quite safe with the nurse girl, allowed them to go. One of them was four years of age, and the other, the missing one, not quite eighteen months old, and just able to toddle about. About half an hour afterwards the elder one returned with her little sister's hat, which she had found on the roadway, and said that "Katie was gone away." Inquiries were at once set on foot, when it transpired that all the other children had been down on the beach playing with the shingle, but they said that the baby had not been there. The nurse girl also said that the little thing had not been on the beach, but had been left playing on the road. It was very evident, however, that none of the children had any clear idea of what had become of the missing one....!
....Should it prove, by any chance, that the little thing has been found straying, and has been sheltered for the night, it is hoped that the fact will be made known to the sorrowing parents at once, or to the police.....
