Maungaturoto Memories
Three men named Cartwright, Taylor and Horniblow, who
were in a boat off the Whakapirau wharf, Auckland this
week , met with some very serious injuries. Horniblow had
some gelignite and a dynamite cap in his vest pocket into
which he placed his smouldering pipe. A loud explosion
occurred, Horniblow receiving a wound to his side and losing a hand, while Cartwright lost an eye. The other man
was uninjured. The side of the boat was blown out, but the
occupants got ashore.

PAHI HOTEL KEEPER, BAD WITH COLIC
Mr Joseph Ryan, Hotel Keeper of Pahi, N.Z, was very bad
with colic and tried many remedies without results. Then
the honourable Mrs Scotland advised his wife to give him
Chamberlain's Colic and Diarrhoea Remedy. He says
"I was skeptical and refused to take it. I reckoned such
things were no good. At last I got so bad that my wife prevailed upon me to take it. After two doses I was right and
have been so ever since. I was in a bad way, I can tell you,
but now I swear by Chamberlain's Colic and Diarrhoea
Remedy and always keep it handy." -Advert.
- Evening Post 25 March 1913
