THE SPORT OP THE SEA. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 16 March 1912
THE SPORT OP THE SEA. In the year 1894 I was apprenticed on hoard the ship Pendragon Castle, bound home from Calcutta with a cargo of lin seed. At the time of the incident I am about to relate we were hove to under storm canvas off Cape Agulhas, lying nice and easy on the starboard tack in the tremendous sea that was running. At -1 p.m. the order was given "All hands wear ship." This evolution is per formed by getting" the ship off before the wind and bringing her to the wind on the other tack—in this case the port tack. .During the manoeuvres the bolts in the starboard upper and lower topsail yard-* arms drew, and, in consequence, the races, runners, pennants, block and all came tumbling down into the water, of which by now the decks were full, and lay wash ing about in the lee scuppers and gener ally fouling tilings up. Obeying the mates' orders, I lloundered into the scuppers to try and secure the ropes. At that moment the vessel shipped a heavy sea, rolled to leeward, and ropes,...

Commander Amundsen's Story. DISPUTES SHACKLETON'S CLAIMS. EXPEDITIONS' SEPARATE ROUTES FIVE MEN AT THE POLE. True to his premise, Captain Amundsen took several press representatives and three photographers, with the Norweigan Consul, on board the Fram at Hobart on Monday afternoon, and exhibited his maps and the chartu of his tour in the Polar regions, and they made a very interesting .exhibition. The interior of the whole ship was a sight that opened the eyes of those who weru favored with a view of the arrangements. Everything was spic and span. Over the deck roamed some 39 dogs, most of whom were born on the ice or since leaving it, and very friendly dis posed animals they were. Rough and shaggy, with burly heads, and looking in perfect condition they were at once ready to make friends with the visitors. Down into the captain's cabin the party was led, and Captain Amundsen promptly brought forward charts, and explaimed them as he pointed out the varions points marked thereon. Out...

Sev eral important matters were brought for ward which require united action to bring tiiem to a head. "We have no reason to doubt that if this is done good results will follow and the business people will bene fit. It is very unsatisfactory for members to attend especially those who come from a distance and find local men taking little or no interest in such important matters Wc hope in the future to be able to report increased interest and larger attendances | 3t the meetings. k Sale of a Well Known Xorth-west ent Property.

Supply of Farm Labour. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 16 March 1912
Supply of Farm Labour, Mi", Win. I&lt;\ Schoy, Director ol Labor, writes interestingly in his annual report in respect to the * exert problem ol" (lie supply of farm workers. "The supply oi need ed and efficient. labor," he says, "is one of the most important questions of tho farming world. The absence of any regular and reliable supply oi' farm workers is a serious handi cap to ihe farmer, and one always carrjmg with it the possibilities of heavy loss; but the needful provis ion i;i a difficult and perplexing task. This arises mainly from tho spasmodic and intermittent nature of the work over much of the field, and is specially so with regard to harvest work. Where mixed farm ing is tho rule, work of one kind or another can be found for a some what regular number of men uirough most of uie year; but in tho wheat belt, many men are want ed at a good wage for a short pre iod only, and can be done without for tile balance of the 12 months. Thoughtless people sometimes advo cat...

A WANDERING BOY. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 16 March 1912
a wandeium; boy. The ^little boy Bellamy, who was recently reported as missing from his home in Grenfell, is apparently destined to become a rover (says the " Record.") The search for him revealed the fact that he approached the Grenfell-Forbes mailman with the assurance that his mother dis patched him to Forbes, whither some re latives reside. Taking the boy's assur ance, the driver complied with the request, and the youthful adventurer was safely landed at his destination. Inquiries made eventually led to Bellamy junior's restor to the parental roof.
