OUR SERIAL STORY. WHEN A WOMAN WOOS. CHAPTER VII (Continued.) [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 2 February 1912

OUR SERIAL STORY. CHAPTER VII (Continued.) As the door closed upon the girl, Mrs Helme could not suppress a little snort of satirical indignation, iield ing looked at her with polite atten tion, and she said impatiently: "Oh, do sit down and take an other cigarette; you're not in a hurry!" The line he played won her unwill ing admiration by its audacity. He. was immensely interested in Miss Tregarthan; ne wanted to know all about her. Mrs Helme made a point of insisting upon Audrey's dependent -position. She had described her in accurately as a nursery governess— as if there were some special virtue in the diminutive—-the prop of her family, and a protege of her own. She wouldn't have admitted that she was afraid of Fielding, but she had the humiliating feeling tffat her de scription of Audrey was at the same time a sheep-like defiance and an ap peal to his generosity and chivalry. It amounted to, '"Don't eat my lamb." What made it all the more humiliat ing was the sense of a greeay...

CHAPTER VIII. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 2 February 1912

CHAPTER VIII. Fielding was quite sure now that he had made a fool of himself. Miss Tregarthan was a sufficiently pleas and and interesting companion on any terms, and as Mrs Helme's in troduction would give him legiti mate opportunities for meeting her, there was no sense In his having made her acquaintance'in a clandes tine manner. He had no liking for lntirgue for its own sake, and since what he conceived to be the only rational purpose of an intrigue was out.of the question, what he called sentimental terms could only lead to disagreeable complications. So far as he was concerned, the encounter with Mrs Helme had only amused him. On consideration, he uid not think it advisable to tell Audrey that Mrs Helme suspected their, earlier meeting, but he saw clearly that the girl must not~be further compromised with that clever, but momentarily baffled, old lady. On the following Thursday he walked out to meet Audrey, and pro posed that they should go down the Coombe to the place where t...

PERSONAL. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 2 February 1912

PERSONAL. Mr J. H. Bates, the popular secre tary of the Forbes P. A. and H. So ciety and Hospital, and a busy man in his profession of architect, never gives the grass time to even com mence to grow under his feet. One time he used to get round thfigjaflsn try on a "push bike," but ^|§Qhe sports a motor car (a "HupmobilgyJ, and since investing in it a short time back, he has given that car some thing to do, having covered over 7000 miles with it. That is not bad go ing for a man who has no time for pleasure trips. Prior to her departure to Grenfell to fill the position of head nurse at the hospital there, Nurse Auld was presented with a purse of sovereigns, contributed to by the medical staff and several members of the retiring committee. Mr A. J. Baldock was back at business this week after his recent illness. He left yesterday afternoon for Sydney, and will be backwards and forwards for a month. His many friends will trust that the change thus obtained will restore him to all his ...

They work only half-a-day on Saturdays, and by this substitution of Friday for Saturday, they would thus have a continuous time off from mid-day on Friday till Monday morn ing. This was a matter of mutual arrangement. The day's work on that particular Friday would, there before, be from 7.30 till 12.30 p.m. Mr.,Hill, at 8 a.m., left the gang to fill two trucks by 10 o'clock, the hour at which he proposed to return, but at 11 o'clock, when he came back, the work was not completed, and the men were having a snack.

TWO MEALS A DAY [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 2 February 1912

TWO MEALS A DAY The two meals a day craze is spreading in Sydney. A swimmer, who is well known to us, writing dur ing the week, says:—"Instead of hav ing lunch, I have become.a member of the anti-lunch brigade, and go over to the Domain baths. Quite a number of fellows believe in anti lunch, notably Cecil Healy, and other prominent swimmers. There Is no doubt that it gives your system a rest, and I, for one, feel much better since taking the idea on. Needless to say, my vest has become quite de flated. Swimming distances from 220 yards to a mile on an empty stomach must pull a fellow down, and yet not unduly weaken him. My ap petite at night'was at first positively horrible, but now it is quite nor mal."

AN INTERCEPTED MESSAGE. A duck shooter yesterday picked up a bottle in the river this side of Condobolin, containing a piece of paper, on which was inscribed "Thrown into the Lachlan River at Forbes on Friday, December 8th, 1911. Please return this paper-to Ethel Booth, "Ravenstone," Farrand street, North Hill." Perhaps Miss Ethel hoped that her message would have a long journey down the Lach lap, into the Murrumbidgee, thence into the Murray, and down to the "sea, and is disappointed at the re sult. >

LATEST TELEGRAPHIC. THE STRIKE. Military May be Called Out. Brisbane, Friday. "Jlbalatest strike news is that the Jfcfc.ay invoke the aid of the m!«8ryin the event of the strikers ctticinuing their riotous conduct. The men so far have failed to make any convex-ts at the railway station or at the warehouses, although seri ous threats have been thrown out in many instances against those who In sisted on working. Great crowds patrolled the streets last night, and the police had all their work cut out. ' A mob made its way to the pre mises oPa well-known firm, with the intention of bringing the hands out, or comp'elling the proprietors to close their doors, but the police made a Hank movement, and prevented any thing of an aggressive nature.

THERE'S SOMETHING IN THAT. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 2 February 1912

THERE'S SOMETHING IN THAT. This is the Wragge season, and an old story may be revived. When Mr Wragge was Government Meteor ologist for Queensland, his daughters attended some sort of social function one day clad in the lightest of sum mer garments. The hostess and her guests had donned winter garb. "My dears! why this light costume? Your papa predicted a cold snap, and we dressed for it." "Oh, but," said the diaphanously draped ones, "we don't take any notice of pa's predictions; we go by ma's corns." ,

FORBES-STOCKINBINGAL LINE. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 2 February 1912

FORBES-STOCKINBINGAL LINE. There seems to be a lot of diffi culty about ascertaining when the Forbes to Stockinbingal line will start, and from which end. It seems now to be accepted that a commence/ ment will be made at the Stockinbin1 gal end, and the work may even t'ow be under way. Mr Lynch, meiuber for the district, has been appealed to, and his reply, received on /Wednes day, was that he had seen Mr Grif fith, Minister for Works, Who had said that the line would be e^ITmenc ed "right away." There' is some times, however, a beautiful indefinite ness about "rlg'ht away" when it comes from the head of a government department, although in this case it may be taken for granted that there will not be very much more delay.
