Messrs Reid and Gray announce in this issue that they have appointed Mr J H PAULING to the management of the Ashburton branch of their business. Mr PAULING is in every sense of the word "an Ashburton boy" and the simple fact that a firm like Reid and Gray have discovered in him qualities that warrant them choosing him for local manager here, speaks volumes for the manner in which he has spent his youth and early manhood amongst us. He has our heart congratulations on his appointment, as well as our best wishes for success in his new sphere, the duties of which we have no doubt he will discharge satisfactorily to all concerned.

The Domain Board's Recent Work: (column 2/3 of page)
At a meeting of the Domain Board held last evening a rather warm discussion took place upon the outlay on the new grounds. When the items of expenditure were read out, from a freturn prepared as follows - Bowling green formation £40. 16s.1d; water supply £42. 10s.3d.
Mr Pauling challenged the item £42.10s.3d. He mentioned that the figures should have given more information. It was all very well to put down special expenditure on the bowling, tennis, and croquet grounds, but what about the curator's work, the labor of the Council's men, and the wear and tear of the horses, plant etc ?
Second reference:- Mr Pauling said it was all very well to twit the chairman, but they were all in it. He, however, wanted to see what the Domain had cost in the work of horses and the men, and so on, which was not shown in the return before them. Why was all the cost not shown ?16

After duly horouring the usual loyal toast, the chairman invited Mr J H Pauling to propose the first toast of the evening "The Army and Navy". Mr Pauling said it was apparent that the Army had its hands full at present, but they were able to cope with almost any reasonable demand. We in the colonies, were recognised as a part of the great Empire, and must take our part in its defence. The appearance of our (the colony's) boys at the front had been an eye opener to the whole world and their deeds at Slingersfontein spoke for their valor and capabilities. Regarding the Navy, the Transvaal did not possess one, which was perhaps fortunate for them, for we had nothing to fear in that direction for the defence of the Empire and Queen. (applause). He was sure if necessity arose, ever man in the colony would take up a rifle for our noble Queen. He coupled with the toast the names of Captain Dolman Lieutenant A. Clarke and E F Nicoll (Lots more.)27

OBITUARY

MR J H PAULING
It is with feelings of deep regret that we record the death of Mr J H Pauling, which occurred yesterday afternoon at 3.35 o'clock. Mr Pauling's illness was only of a recent date. He was attending a Trust Lands Trust meeting a few weeks ago when he was taken suddenly ill and was removed to his home in Kuripuni, where he remained for some time in a very serious condition; in fact, at one period very little hope was held out for his recovery. Clever medical skill, careful nursing and the great courage which Mr Pauling possessed pulled him through the crisis. Subsequently he was able to get about, but only for a brief time, when he was taken ill again. His health was of such a precarious nature that it was deemed advisable to have him removed to the Masterton Hospital, where an operation was performed, from which Mr Pauling never recovered. Though he knew the end was not far distant, he was bright and cheerful to the last.
There was probably no more popular citizen in Masterton than the late Mr Pauling. He was of a particularly genial nature, a friend to everybody, and an honest fearless man who commanded the respect of everyone. He had endeared himself to all who knew him by his many acts of kindness, and his readiness to help others along the Road of Life. His charitable actions could be likened unto those of the late Rev Dr Stuart, of Dunedin, who was worshipped by all classes -they were " done by stealth," for no one hated publicity more than plain Jim Pauling. Many a working man in Masterton has been " helped over the style" by him - helped along the road to prosperity, and it is these who will mourn most sincerely the loss of a true friend and adviser. He had no enemies - no one even heard a harsh word spoken about him - he was loved and respected by all for those qualities which go to make the ideal man. The worker has lost a staunch friend, and Masterton one of her best citizens - one who is mourned in every home in Masterton to-day.
The late Mr Pauling was born in Dumfries, Scotland in 1860, and was therefore, 52 years of age. He arrived in New Zealand when 3 years old, and came to Masterton from Ashburton - where he was a prominent public man - in September, 1900. Since then up till the time of his death he had occupied the position of manager of the Masterton Farmer's Implement Company, which he filled with every credit. The deceased took an active part in local politics. He was formerly a member of the School Committee, and a member of the Masterton Borough Council, resigning the latter position owing to the new Municipal Act, which was recently brought into force, and which prevented him acting on the Council when his firm was doing business with it. He was also a member of the Trust Lands Trust, and was one of the founders and first captain of the Masterton Fire Police Corps, and had also been a member of the Masterton Fire Board. He was also a prominent Druid and Mason, and had been a Justice of the Peace for many years. He was a valuable member of the Wairarapa Caledonian Society, and was president in 1906 and again this year. He also belonged to the Scottish Society, of wellington.
A widow and family of nine are left to mourn their loss, and they will have the sympathy of the whole community in their bereavement.
The funeral will take place on Thursday, leaving the deceased's late residence at Kuripuni for the Masterton cemetery at 2.30pm.43

THE LATE MR PAULING - THE LAST TRIBUTE OF RESPECT
AN IMPRESSIVE CEREMONY

The funeral of the late Mr J H Pauling, which took place yesterday afternoon, was the largest seen in Masterton for many years. Friends from far and near - some from the South Island and others from as far North as Auckland - were present to pay a last tribute of respect to the man whom they had loved and honoured. The cortege comprised over six hundred people and was thoroughly representative of the whole of the Wairarapa, many local bodies to the north and south of Masterton being represented. The who proceedings were of a very solemn and pathetic nature, and an impressive stillness characterised the whole proceedings. At two o'clock the people began to line the streets, and hundreds congregated at the late home of the deceased at Kuripuni. The coffin was taken from the house and placed on a fire engine, which was used as a hearse, the Pipe Band playing " The Flowers of the Forest". The coffin was then covered with a Scottish Flag, which was draped, and the beautiful wreaths. The wreaths received totalled fifty-three, including tributes from the Borough Council, Caledonian Society, Trust Lands Trust, Pipe Band, employees of the Masterton Implement Company, and prominent citizens of the district. The funeral procession was then formed, admirable arrangements in this connection having been made by Superintendent Jenkins, Captain Dixon, Messrs F Hunn, and R McRae, who acted as marshalls. The Pipe Band led the solemn procession; then followed members of the Druids, Freemason; Foresters and Oddfellows Lodges, relatives of the deceased, and close friends, employees of the Masterton Implement Company, directors of the Wairarapa Caledonian Society, members of the Trust Lands Trust, representatives of local bodies, the combined brass bands.Fire Brigade, Fire Police, members of the Wairarapa Caledonian Society, citizens on foot and in vehicles. The brass bands commenced the "Dead March in Saul" and the cortege moved off. At the Masterton District High School the bands ceased playing, and the strains of "Lochaber No More" pealed forth from the Pipers. Well down Queen-street the bands took up the playing again, rendering the beautiful "Garland of Flowers". There was a very large concourse of people at the cemetery in addition to those who comprised the cortege. The casket was carried from the hearse to the grave by Chief McLeod, and Messrs J B McKenzie, T G Hoar, G R Sykes, D McLachlan and J Georgeson, members of the Caledonian Society. It was lowered into the grave by Messrs J M Coradine, W D Watson, C Hausmann and R Buick. The services at the graveside were conducted in an impressive manner by the Rev A T Thompson, BA BD. The followed the pathetic Druidic and Masonic ceremonies. As the members of the Masonic Lodge passed round the grave they deposited a sprig of Acacia on the coffin. The Pipe Band then rendered "Flowers of the Forest," and the solemn, impressive, and sacred ceremony came to a conclusion. The ball bearers from the house of the deceased gentleman to the hearse were six employees of the Masterton Implement Company. The deceased's grave is situated in a corner of the graveyard close to the weeping willows. The number of people present at the cemetery to pay their last tribute to the man whom they all respected and loved was probably the largest in the history of Masterton. The scene when the coffin was lowered into the grave was a very touching one, and even stern men were not ashamed to shed a tear.46
