THE KOSCIUSKO RANGE ON THE AUSTRALIAN ALPS. PART II. Kosciusko's Summer Attractions. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 9 March 1912

l'AKT II. Kosciusko's Summer Attractions. The threo mam features to which tho tourist looks for satisfaction in con templating a visit to any resort, arc climate, scenery, and occupation. Kosciusko offers them all. Its attrac tions are in many respects unique, and are ample enough to fill a tourist's pro gramme for at least a fortnight. ' ^ Climate—Montesquieu, the great Frenchman, once said: "No empire'is so enduring as that of climate." The importance of climate in every phase of human life and activity would ho difficult to overestimate. For the tourist, climate must, mean health and comfort. People whose lives are passed in the warm latitudes recognise that periodical changes to more favoured regions arc as necessary as the counting-house, the ledger, tlfo. newest book, or the latest play. Open ness to this truth is evidence of com mon-sense. Kosciusko's giant form pierces the higher stratus of the atmosphere, and its cool, invigorating nil- quickly re cuperates tired brains and...

BEYOND THE LIMITS OF THE LAW. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 9 March 1912

BEYOND THE X.IMITS OF THE LAW. Tlie Scotch excursion train was crowded, and tho passengers perspired freely. In one particular carriage were eleven—six on one side and live on the other, and of the fiye threo were big, brawny .Scots, who packed the other unfortunate twt> Into a microscopic space. At last they came to a station, and more passengers wore waiting. The guard pushed his head into the carriage, and then called to a tall, lean, cadaverous looking creature who was vainly search ing for a seat. "Room here, sir," sal dtlie guard. "Take six a side comfortably." So tho cadaverous one got in, and tried to wedge himself between two of the Scots, ^'ailing, lie turned to one, and then said: "You must move up a little, please. Each seat will take six people, and, ac cording to Act of Parliament, you are only entitled to eighteen inches of space." "Ay, ay, ma frien'," answered the brawny one, "that's a yerra gudc rulo for you that's been built that way; but, mon, ye canna blatne m...

THE CHURCH'S ICICLES. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 9 March 1912

THE CHUKCH'S ICICLES. To illustrate the stand-offishness of some churches this story is told of a man who sat through Hie service one Sunday morning wearing his hat. "When request ed to do so by an usher, lie removed his hut smilingly. The usher afterwards asked him if ho had worn the hat pur posely, or if it was merely absent-minded negligence. "No," said the man. "X have been attending this church regularly for nearly two years, and no one has ever spoken to ine in all that time. I just thought that I'd l°iivo my hat on my head this morning to see if it would serve as an introduction to someone. I am glad to meet you." That isn't as bad as the case of a parish in N.S.TV., in which the" rector's wife had never met influential churchmen in the same town for a quarter of a century. ".All I want is an opening," said the pushing young num. And when they showed him the door, he wasn't a bit sat isfied.

WHAT WILL THE GOVERNMENT DO? [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 9 March 1912

WHAT WILL TILE GOVISKXMEXT DO? The Legislative) Council is literal ly "playing ducks and drakes' with the Industrial Arbitration law in tended by the Labor Government to be the panacea for all the ills that the life of the worker is heir to. It will bo interesting to watch the outcome in this direction during the next few days, to see whether the Minister will take this hostility to wards their pet schemes as a throw ing down of the glove, and whether they will take up the challenge that is conveyed to them, and make a bold effort, which has so far been delayed, to end the career of the Upper House, as set forth in the party's platform. The most vital of its clauses from the Trades Hall standpoint, that providing' for pref erence to unionists, has been un mercifully torn from the measure, and If the caucus Government are meekly submissive to this diro trag edy, then the last shreds of Labor's strange claim to have the right to continue to carry on the affairs of the country will sur...

SATURDAY, MARCH 8th, 1912. THE RAILWAY EXTENSION PitO l'OSALS. In last issue we made two im portant announcements regarding the proposals for railway extension in this district, and our object in the present- instance is to emphas ise the urgency of the position from the loc&i standpoint, and the necess ity for a representative attendance at the meeting of the Railway Leag ue convened for next Wednesday night. One item of news was to the effeo: that the Public Works Com mittee have deemed it impossible to continue their inquiry into the mer its of the scheme for the extension of the line from Canowindra to Eu gowra until after the close of the present session of Parliament, which piobably means until after the- Eas ter holidays at earliest. At this de lay Tve cannot, remembering tht great amount of work allotted to the present Works Committee, and the uncertain exigencies of the po litical situation, profess to be sur prised.

No. 44. LAMB-RAISING AND WHEAT-GROWING. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 9 March 1912

No. 44. LAMB-RAISING AND WHEAT GROWING. Raising lambs for export long since j became im Important industry in. South ' Australia. In conjunction with wheat growing the lamb business lias often been a theme for discussion among fanners at the agricultural bureaux. In a recent number of Journal of Agriculture, South Australia, interest ing reports are given concerning the I opinions of those who combine wheat- j growing and lamb production, and of those who believe in wheat-growing alone. At Wiliowie {where the annual rain fall is about 17 inches) Mr. TV. P. Foulis opened a discussion at a meeting of the local bureau by stating that he firmly believed that lamb-raising for export was profitable when combined with agricultural pursuits. In a district Where the rainfall was uncertain It was unwise to depend solely on wheat growing for an income. A Farm of 640 Acres. In connection with wheat-growing, horse-bree<Mng, dairying, poultry, fat tening of stock, and lamb-raising shou...

A lady, pale and careworn, yet still ex hibiting traces of beauty in lier fact', sat at the tabic beside him. The lady was Mrs. Blundcll, of Hammerly Hall, West moreland, a wealthy client, who had come to consult the solicitors. "And your child," said the London soli citor; "I thought he was dead." "Dead!
