TICHBORNE. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 2 February 1912
TICHBORNE. Mr A. Genge, junr., of Tichborne, had a very unpleasant experience a few clays ago, which unfortunately resulted in heavy loss. He recently purchased a number of bees from Mr Halliday, of The Welcome, and was removing some of the hives and their occupants, when one of the boxes was upset by the cart jolting into a rut. The bees escaped, and at once attacked both horse and driver. As fhe best way of escaping from an unpleasant predicament, Mr Genge at once proceeded to unharness the horse (a valuable mare), and the •^art tipped up, throwing the re maining hives out, and liberating the inmates. So fiercely did the bees attack him that Mr Genge was com pelled to seek refuge in a waterhole, and leave the mare to her fate. The latter was apparently bewildered by the onslaught of the insects, and did not attempt to get away. She suc cumbed to the effects of the stings ♦he following morning, and no doubt Mr Genge's presence of mind in plunging into the water to rid him self of h...
PARKES. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 2 February 1912
PARKES. Another old resident has passed the boundary no traveller returns, Mr James Moore, having joined the great silent majority. He had long since reached the three score years and ten, and an attack of illness has tened the end. He was well known among the miners years ago, his ven tures having been attended with a fair degree of success. His wife predeceased him many years. An almost continuous procession of water carts is to be seen on Its way to the stand pipe near the Coun cil Chambers. Mr Greg. M'Girr has sustained a heavy loss of sheep through the rav ages of some town dogs. Late at night he put 2500 mixed sheep, in cluding some well-bred ewes and rams, in the trucking yards. Early next morning, when the men went to remove the sheep, they found a large number had been killed, and about 30 others badly town about by dogs. Many of the poor animals pre sented a terrible sight, and had to be destroyed, and, Mr M'Girr informs us, that 100 in all were killed. As these included s...

The high price of platinum is attracting- people to this place. Mr James Scott, of Jack's Look out, east of Fifield, has been offered a good price for his lease and n'pnt. The price of the metal is so tempting that he will not part with the pro perty.
A FAREWELL. TO MR AND MRS RADNEDGE (Contributed). [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 2 February 1912
ft FAREWELL. TO MR AND MRS RADNEDGE (Contributed). A very pleasing function took place at the residence of Mr and Mrs .Radnedge, at Eugalong, on Friday evening last, when some 50 or 60 'friends assembled to bid farewell to the family, prior to their departure from the district. The Radneclges have lived at Euga long for 26 years, and it is needless to add that they have won the es-, teem and regard of a large circle of i friends. They are people whose very name- has always'been hospital ity. It is small wonder that their decision to sell out, and trelc for fresh fields, met with the greatest possible expressions of regret Sn this district. However, having made a move in that direction, their friends decided upon entertaining them before leaving, and right royally they did it on Friday evening. After an enjoyable evening had been spent by the younger members of the gathering in music and dancing, the company shortly after midnight sat down to an excellent repast, ar ranged under the ...
THROUGH THE DISTRICT. HONEY, HORSES, POPULATION, ETC. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 2 February 1912
HONEY, HORSES, POPULATION, ETC. (By Our Travelling Representative). Cycling along the Orange Road the other day, whilst the glass reading ■was trying to re&ch one of Hobbs' "cricket scores, I espied some delect able; looking figs forming a hedge . round what looked like a deserted .homestead. Thinking it wise to . sample the fi"'!t, I dismounted, and -found an entrance to the aforesaid seemingly deserted farm house, but was surprised to see a weird looking " person walking In and out amongst -several rows of boxes, placed at re gular intervals"6n raised iranjtjs. A. closer inspection of the person re vealed to me the fact that it was Mr T. S. M'Dade, dressed in a suit of armour, to withstand the affection ate attentions of the residents of the boxes. The mesh net that enveloped his head and shoulders was an effec tive guard, as I found out to my cost. Whilst engaged in conversation with Mr M'Dade, a lively bee, with a sting sharper than an angiy woman's tongue, resented my i...

THE TIME TO TAKE CARE. LiCe mostly is a series of changes, and there are certain ages that are more critical than others. With women folk between the ages of 44 to 50 an unusually '.'trying''-time, so far as'-liealth is concerned, is experi enced. If care and treatment are taken no awkward consequnces will ensue. This has been proved in numberless cases by' the records of the Ladies' College of. Health. The College treatment (which can be used in one's own home)-is a most excel lent one. and lias completely cured thousands of ailing, women.: A-book telling all about it will be sent free if 2d is remitted-for postage.

THAT PHOSPHORUS. MR MARSH INSISTENT. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 2 February 1912
THAT PHOSPHORUS. MR MARSH INSISTENT. It may be remembered that at a previous meeting of the Farmers and Settlers' Association, held towards the end of last 'year, Mr W. J. Marsh, of Sandhills, on the Orange Road, brought up the matter of the adul teration of the phosphorus supplied for the purpose of poisoning rabbits, and urged that the Pastures Protec tion Board should move in the mat ter. That Board, however, decided that the matter did not come within its jurisdiction, and no.w Mr Marsh takes another course. At the meet ing of the Farmers and Settlers' As sociation, held on Saturday, he re iterated his complaints of the weak ness of the phosphorus mixtures, and stated that during a recent visit to Sydney he had interviewed Mr T. I. Campbell, the general secretary of the Farmers and Settlers' Association, who informed him that on receipt, of the necessary resolution by the Forbes branch of the Association, he would have an analysis made of the samples sent down. Mr Marsh said he ...
