Sydney Sporting Letter. "The Looker-on Sees most of the game." THK TURE. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 16 March 1912
Sydney Sporting Letter. BY LOOKER ON. "The Looker-on Sees most of tlie same." THK TURF. Reference to my first letter after the weights for the Australian cup appeared ipfillshow that I made Saxonite prime pick of my early bunch. In my finals for the race, I placed him first and Flavian second. When I elevated Saxonite from his lowly placc in the weights early in February to first of my picks, 50's or more could have been got about him. Even after the stable support which I anticipated, he could have been backed on .he course at 20's and he started at 16 to 1. As he dead-heated, i.'i on him at 50's brought £24 10s profit, at 20's£$ 10s profit, and at 16 to 1 £7 los profit. * # « Saxonite, a 5-year-old gelding by Sir Tristram-Carronade, was bred by his owner, Joseph Brown of Newcastle, who has aimed at many big events and just failed. For him Patronage was beaten a short neck by San Fran in the Metropoli tan, and was again second in Street Arab's ! Sydney Cup; Proceed was third in a M...

Family Notices [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 16 March 1912
IN MEMORIAM. PATTERSON — In loving memory of our dear husband and father, Henry Hilton Patterson, who de- parted this life at Forbes on 18th March, 1911. We saw him suffering day by day, It caused us bitter grief; To see him slowly pine away, And could not give relief. Not dead to us, we love him dear, Not lost, but gone before; He lives with us in memory dear, And will for ever more. Sweetly and safely now he rests, We must not grieve or weep; Dry up those bitter falling tears, He's gently hushed to sleep. Our Father help us now to say, Most Holy is Thy will; Graiit us submission day by day And whisper "Peace be Still." Inserted by his loving wife and children.

A TICHBOURNE FATALITY. On Friday evening last (says the Parkes "Examiner") Mrs. John Fallon was driv- ing to her home from Tichbourne, two miles distant from it, accompanied by her daughter. They reached a gate, which her daughter got out of the vehicle to open. Just then a piece of paper was carried along by the wind. This frighten- ed the horse, which took off down the fence. In the bolt, Mrs. Fallon was thrown out, and dragged some distance She was picked up in an unconscious con- dition. On Sunday evening she regained consciousness for a brief space, but soon relapsed, finally passing away at half past ten on Monday morning. Mrs. Fallon was an excellent neighbour and friend and was widely respected for her many estimable qualities. The respect in which she was held was evidenced by one of the largest funerals which has taken place for a lengthy period. The coffin was taken to the Roman Catholic Church, where a service was held, and thence to the ceme- tery, the officiating minis...

The Saturday Half Holiday. DISSATISFACTION AT WYALONG. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 20 March 1912
The Saturday Half Holiday. DISSATISFACTION AT VVYALONG. West VVyalong is not at all satisfied with the change in the weekly half holiday recently made from Wednesday to Satur day. A lively public meeting was held with a view of petitioning the Minister for Lands and Labor, to have the Saturday Halt Holiday abolished in West Wyalong, in favor of Wednesday as hitherto exis ted, and the late night on Saturday in lieu of Friday as at present introduced. " We have had a few weeks of the Saturday half ■ holiday (says the "Star"), and judging by complaints, and the inconvenience caused town and country residents, there appears to be no logical argument in favor of the Saturday half-holiday at present. If we had a railway to Lake Cudgellico, and an excursion train ran out every Saturday at I p.m., returning of a Sunday night, there might be an excuse for the early closing on Saturday. " There are, however, a great many who would be prepared to favor the old system that existed years ago, i....
