Wright Ileaton & Go's premises in Rankin Street, .Mr. White who is employed by the firm was the first to notice the outbreak ami gave the alarm. Tthc brigade were quickly on the scene and had the flames under control in a very short space of time. The shed was used as a storage room for tallow, boxes, and skins. It is fortunate that the out break did not take place at night, as the building adjoins Messrs. 13. • \V. Venables and Go's motor gar age where some valuable cars are kept. The ringing of the fir'ebell cased quite a stir and people could be seen running from all direction to the scene. The building, which was partially destroyed, is owned by Mr. 13. W. Vemibles, and is insured in tlve Standard Otl'ice.
FORBES TO STOCKINBINGAL. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 23 March 1912
FORBES TO STOCKIX131 NO All. Reports have been published to the effect that the Minister for Works, Mr. , Arthur Griffith, is to visit Stockinbingal I to turn the first sod of the railway be ! tween that place and Forbes. But they j conflict as to whether the interesting function is to take place to day, 23rd inst, or next Saturday, 30th inst, and so far as ! we can ascertain nothing is known locally as to the correct time. A later report still states that Mr. Griffith has gone on strike ;against "sod turning'' ceremonies, on the ground that he wants to stay at home at the week end once in a while, a feeling we can .quite sympathise with. So perhaps ihe day of rejoicing will fall through, unless Mr. Griffith can find a colleague who is not so tired as he is of the ceaseless round of stern duty and hard travelling that necessarily appertain to the strenuous political life of the present day. Even pleasures must grow weari some under such circumstances Any how, unless report is a more...

WHAT WORKERS WANT. (From a Carlops Man in Canada.) [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 23 March 1912
WHAT WORKERS WANT. (From a Carlops Mail in Canada.) It all depends upon the man, And scarce can lie defined:. There's so:nc that please you never can, And some that go it blind. The lazy mar. wants lighter work-— lint with the sumo big pay— All heavy jobs ho trios to shirk, Arid 'dies all tho day And there's tho man who takes tho booze; Ho works well when he's tit. Ho wants—well, now, ho won't refuse To take all he can got. Or, take the man who's down in luck— Tie's always deep in debt. He. wants, but doesn't know it, pluck And stamina and grit. Jjut take the average worker's wants; You'll find them much tlie same— A decent wage, and decent hours, A chance to play tho game.

Mr. Beeby at Wyalong. INSPECTION OF RAILWAY ROUTES. OPTIMISTIC AS TO LAND SETTLE MENT. The Minister for Lands, Mr. Beeby, visi ted the Wyalong district from Saturday to Monday last, and made a personal in spection of the country along the railway route from Wyalong to Lake Cudgellico. While at Ungarie the Minister made an important pronouncement in regard to land settlement in the district. He thus repor ted : —" I have the theory that our wheat belt goes right out to Nyngan, and per haps beyond that point. I am beginning to know the difference between wheat country and country that is only suitable for pastoral purposes. The Government's land policy is not dictated by any hostile feelijig. Our only desire is to do a fair thing to the community. Where large areas are held out of use and the people are willing to get on them we will give the people the chance to do so. (Applause) In regard to these railway routes, I have always held the idea that Hillston was the better. But Mr. Kell...
FORBES MUSICAL SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 23 March 1912
KOItBES MLSICAI; SOCIETY. The production of the comic opera "The Pirates of Penzance," is being re tarded by the lack'of enthusiasm on the part of the ladies' chorus, though the com mittee hopes for better results in the early future. At present, the progress being made by them is not satisfactory. Miss Garstang has had to retire from the society through illness. Khe has always been very enthusiastic and is one of the society's best sopranos. The male chorus has made excellent progress and is very strong. A. number of recent arrivals with good voices has strengthened its ranks and the committee consider that it would be n) idle boast that it is perhaps the best in the western district.

ANOTHER LAND LAW AMENDMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 23 March 1912
AXOTHKIl LAX J) .L.-VW AM ENDMENT. " I intend at the earliest opportunity," said the Minister for Lands (Mr. Beeby) in Sydney on Wednesday, " to submit to Parliament any necessary amendment of the law to enable the Government to re sume improvement leases on a reasonable basis. Many holders of these leases in the Lachlan district, I find, realising that their areas must give way to settlement, are prepared to negotiate with the (Jloser Settlement Advisory Board for the sale of their unexpired terms at reasonable prices." Speaking of his recent tour in the south-west, Air. iieeby said that he was very pleased with the excellent re ception his land bill had got. " The land scare," he added, " is quite dead."
THE SHAMROCK. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 23 March 1912
THE SHAMROCK. Never before in Sydney has the shamrock been so much in evidence on St. Patrick's Day. In this new land it became almost a tradition that the shamrock did not grow out of Irish soil. Patriots had Irish soil transferred to Australia with the shamrock rooted therein, and yet it soon refused to grow. But. now there are horticultural experts who cultivate anything, and this year the shamrock growing In Australian soil was on sale in the shops. We have nothing quite like it iu Aus tralia, though our clover belongs to the same family. The shamrock sold in Sydney as the real plant it sell' was a very small leaf, three on a stem, and the color shaded with, brown. The attention it attracted was considerable.
JUDGING ON POINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 23 March 1912
JUDGING ON 1'OINTM. At the meeting of the show committee i held on Thursday Mr. T. M. Dunn brought up the matter of judging exhibits at the show as far as practical on points. He ! thought it would be a good idea if his sug gestion were carried out. When he i mentioned the matter last year the com mittee thought it would entail too much work on the judges. He did not think it j would. In the sheep sec. especially, if his j idea were carried out, and a card placed in a conspicuous position containing details of i the judging, the information would be in , valuable to the public. He moved accord ingly, Mr. Newell seconded the motion, which was carried.
