A MODERN GARAGE. OFFICIAL OPENING BY THE MAYOR. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 6 February 1912

A MODERN GARAGE. OFFICIAL OPENING BY THE MAYOR. If <i combination of efficiency and energy, coupled with the necessafy outfit, spells success, then those two young and enterprising men, Messrs Summers and Peppercorn, have a bright future ahead in a district such as this, where motor cars, are s'o numerous. . ' "\iixj On Friday evening, at , ?• o'clbefcn the new garage in Rankin-st., with its asphalted floors, was formally opened by the chief citizen of Forbes, Mayor/Edwards. In . front of him stood a motor car, which was the cynosure of all eyes.- It was Dr. • M'bonnell's car, washed and; polish- ' ed, and touched up by accomplished artisans,, till it. presented a picture to gladden the eye of .a motorman.'' This is the' popular doctor's third . motor car, and lie is now riding his fifth motor bike, and as. he mainly' , looks after.vhis own machines, it-is little wonder that his car, well cared for, should, when finally touched "up by artists at the. game, present sueli a...

The Forbes Advocate, FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 9, 1912. GRAZE FOR SPORT. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 9 February 1912

%\t Jfotte ^Ufrocate, FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 9, 1912. GRAZE FOR SPORT. There are those who think that Australians devote too much time to sport, but, as is the case in most things, there are two sides to the argument. A healthy body nearly always means a healthy'mint!, and in these days of increasing sedentary occupation, the need for active, out-of doors relaxation grows. Out of this evolves the sporting-spirit,-'and-the\x=req-\ love of sport. No one in his senses could survey the swarming ranks of surf bathers at Manly and Bondi, and condemn. The spirit which prompts crowds to sit for hours under a blistering sun watching the progress of a, test cricket match is not one that calls for reproof. The eager thousands who rush to the racecourse are not without'a plea in their defence. The real danger is the possibility of absorption in these things, to the utter exclusion of concerns of a more substantial nature. We do not want a nation of clerks; shopkeepers, and book-worms, but at the same...

KEEP YOUR SHEEP MOVING. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 9 February 1912

KEEP YOUR SHEEP MOVING. One of the secrets of sheep farming on agricultural lands, indeed also on grazing runs, is to lceep sheep moving, and give them reasonable change of pasture. Some time ago in New Zealand an object lesson as to the value of change of pasture was provided by a farmer on the west coast of the North Island. He had been losing a number of lambs and hoggets through lung and stomach worms, and he sent some badly affected sheep down to Wellington for veterinary examination. The lambs were not destroyed, the mere change of pasture worked a. complete cure."

OUR LADIES' LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 9 February 1912

OUR LADIES' LETTER. (By Reseda). The throes of February weather are upon us, and sweltering heat is our portion. No need for Turkish baths just now. We perspire quite freely enough, especially whilst attending one of the numerous summer sales in the draper shops. It is marvellous what a lot of soiled, bedraggled clothes are exhibited for the bargain hunting eye on these scrambling occasions. Even our best and most reputable shops assume for. the time being the appearance of an old wardrobe shop. . As ! the last straw to a bad attack of the "blues," commend me to the fag end of a summer sale. An English visitor to our blues skied city recently remarked that most of our sweet sixteens, and, in fact, all the teens were very apt to carry their complexions round with them in a Saturday to Monday bag, slung over their shoulders, and on arriving at a shop window or in a tea room, they would dive down into the depths of their week enders, and produce the rouge stick and powder puff, and pro...

THE RECORD LOAD. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 9 February 1912

THE RECORD LOAD. The following verses are in reference to the fine drawing performance (recently noted in these columns), put up by Mr C. Hodge's team from Bedgerabong. Oh, have you heard the news That's flying all around, For drawing heavy loads, A new champion we have found? Of Charlie Hodges I would sing, Who dwells at Gunning Gap, And on their .tin-pot records ' 'He has placed the final caji. With a team of ten bay Topsmans, The pride of all the West, He fears no other driver's teams, For they've proved themselves the best. Yoked to a Rivett waggon, "Bedgerabong's Bright Star," They've beat all previous records, Yes, beat them all by far. The shearers and the rouseabouts, The cockies lean and thin, They loiter by the roadside, To watch them lug it in. 'Twas not upon a metal road, Nor asphalt in the street, But out across those spongy plains, The worst that we could meet. And when you sight the Bogan Gate, There's hills of sand and rock, But nothing on the road This noble team co...
