AGRICULTURAL & PASTORAL NOTES. FOR THE MAN ON THE LAND FARMING IN THE DISTRICTS. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 16 February 1912
AGRICULTURAL & PASTORAL NOTES. FOR/ THE MAN ON THE LAND (Issued by the Department of Agriculture). FARMING IN THE DISTRICTS. The first results of farming operations at the Nyngan State Farm are encouraging. The manager of the farm (Mr H. J. Kelly), in a report, says that the first harvest, considering the dry season, has been very satisfactory. The rainfall for the year lias been much below the average. In the autumn, during a period of three months, only 28 points of rain fell, that small quantity being the results of separate falls. The wheat crop was planted from March to June, but owing to the dry spell referred to, and to the fact that the land in which the early crops were planted could not be fallowed for any length of time previous to planting, germination did not take place until after a fall of rain, totalling 59 points, on the 10th, lltli, and 12th of May. Further rain fell towards the end of May, making a total for the month of 183 points. This gave the crops a g...

TWO WIVES WANTED. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 16 February 1912
TWO WIVES WANTED. This is tlie sort of thing that a perspiring editor has toyput up with. We were paid' a visit by "a young person" during the week, who asked us to insert as advertisements the following two productions. Both are dated "Forbes, Feb. 14/1912," they are in the same handwriting (suspiciously feminine), and bear the name of two persons, whom we have no doubt are residents of the town or district; We refused the notices as advertisements, but publish them in the shape :of a, news paragraph\x=req-\ strictly without the names, of course. Here is the first:—"Man wants wife, suitable" for , farm work, also house \ duties, age 16." The other reads: — "Man wants suitable wife for good general work; to be-.able to cook well/ and entertain: age, f9 years."'

THAT MOVE-ON CLAUSE. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 16 February 1912
THAT MOVE-ON CLAUSE. / That part of Forbes whicli likes to sit out of cloors of an evening, and fan, itself to keep cool what time the thermometer is bubbling j.ip around the century, has been: much concerned with the ukase "of the Municipal. Council to enforce' flie move-on clause, but there is no necessity" for any uneasiness unless the lieavy footed policeman forgets discretion. The operation of the ordinance' is njerely meant-to be exerted where a congestion of traffic is caused, and where loiterers of an objectionable type make "themselves obnoxious by indulging in rude remarks. Forbes is not severely afflicted with this class of nuisance, but it is just as well to have the power to deal with it, aiid trust to the .discrimination and common sense of the man in blue .to use it. The discussion in the Council on the matter was of a ciuasi-liumor\x=req-\ ous nature, and not intended to be taken too seriously by well-behaved folk, Forbes is not so'severely:. congested that it must h...

. A. HARMLESS; FIRE. Just .after the sun had gone to bed 011 Wednesday evening, and the heavens had not quite ceased blush-'' ing~ at the performance, the firebell rang out, and there was a stampede up Lachlan-street;, The scene of the fire, which was smothered in its ,in-; fancy, was at the, rear of Johnson and Son's big engineering works. : Mr Dunn; "blacksmith, adjoining, had been cutting tyres,"and it is surmised that a spark flew from the lire, and driven "by the high wind from the south, landed; amongst some inflammable rubbish; near which were stored some scores of tins of kerosene on the lee side of t.he outbreak. The prompt arrival of the brigade saved what must otherwise have proved a jnost disastrous lire. No damage >yhatever was' done. This 'is the third time that a fire has occurred on' those premises. On one; occasion, some seven years'ago, the .office and its contents were considerably damaged, but the building was saved, though .the charred studs and rafters show ...

LAXITY OF ALDERMEN. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 16 February 1912
LAXITY OF ALDERMEN; Alderman Patterson aired a'griev\x=req-\ ance at the meeting of the Council on Tuesday. R. Stone, one of the Council employees, had applied for an increase of wages, and the Finance Committee, to which it was deferred, had not dealt with the matter. The Finance Committee consists of the whole of the "aldermen, and Aldermen Patterson complained that the atendance at the meetings of that committee was so *small that it was not fair to those who attended' to have the responsibility thrown on them of increasing wages and of such important matters. "I was told," he said, "that this was a reform council when I was last returned as alderman. At the last nieeting of the Finance Committee, only the Mayor, Alderman Sam, and myself were present, and if aldermen cannot attend these committee meetings, abolish them altogether. Let every alderman take the responsibility."

GRENFELL TO GOOLAGONG PROPOSED RAILWAY EXTENSION. Interview with Works Minister. The question of railway ■ extension is of such vital interest to this dis-. trict just now, and it is highly probable that several more projects will be sanctioned before the present Go-: vernment goes before the people; we think it would prove of interest ;to reproduce an interview.
