OUR LADIES' LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 15 December 1911
OUR LADIES' LETTER. (By Risida). To call the past few days warm is a crime worthy of severe castigatiou. They were absolutely volcanic fires, and the air was apparently charged with-some asbestos property that not only lield the heat, but threw it back 'into. our faces with fiendish force. How to grow cool-never once entered any mind, but liow to keep from getting any hotter, and not worry over it, was a theme much dwelt upon. The very water that came through the taps was burning hot, and in the northern suburbs we are only allowed to use a limited supply, even of this natural hot' water - service, . for, - through some ' inexplicable reason, water on the' high levels is giving ■OUt. . : Teachers and ; pupils are keenly looking forward to next week, for it is the time appointed for scholastic duties to end this year. Never was. Xmas vacation" looked . forward to\x=req-\ with more. eagerness ■ than this one, for the baleful fires of the angry sun have made, school a most oppressive p...

THE EXODUS TO SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 15 December 1911
THE EXODUS TO SYDNEY. The annual exodus to Sydney is in full flow, many residents of Forbes district having already left, or being on the point of leaving for the seaside. . Amongst the latter are Mr H. W. Stitt, of Boyd, who is leaving with his family on Monday for Manly, and on the following day Mr Wallace Hunter and family will make , for the same attractive resort. Mr . and Mr? A. J. Stitt are already in Sydney, and, in fact, a good part of well-to-do Forbes will soon be addressed "care of the Big Smoke."
CORRESPONDENCE TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 15 December 1911
CORRESPONDENCE TO THE EDITOR. Correspondence to the editor is welcomed by "The Advocate," but in the case of many subjects dealt with, we would like, as far as possible, that the correspondents' names should appear in print under their contributions. The nom de plume business is right enough in many instances, but in others, where a personal grievance is perhaps being ventilated, it is something very much like firing from behind a hedge. Of course, there is a class of correspondence— on broad matters of public interest— where a nom de plume is quite in place.
JOTTINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 15 December 1911
JOTTINGS. The Bathurst Inspector of Stock (Mr C. R: Brett) reports that he inspected the sheep of Mr Webb, of Blackdown, who had reported having lost a stud ewe from bots; also many of his sheep were suffering therefrom (says the Bathurst "Times"). Mr Brett treated them with powdered iodoform up the nostrils. He thinks that the death reported was due to, causes other than "bots.-' By the first excursion train of the Christmas season, which left Forbes last Tuesday evening, there were 21 first and 58 second class passengers who travelled at excursion rates.

AS OTHERS SEE US. FURTHER TRIBUTES TO "THE ADVOCATE." [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 15 December 1911
£S OTHERS SEE US. FURTHER TRIBUTES TO "THE - ADVOCATE." "The Forbes Advocate"—making' the third paper in Forbes—was launched last week by Brownliill Bros., of Wellington. The first issue is really an excellent production— brimful of interesting news, brightly ■written.— -Coonamble "Independent.' At Forbes a new paper has seen the light. It is called "The Advocate." It is double demy in size, contains eight pages, is issued twice a week, and is faultlessly printed from linotype slugs. All the type is new, the plant is evidently in perfect order, and, from a printer's standpoint, the production is in every wax enviable. —Parkes "Examiner." Those energetic journalists, Messrs Brownhill Bros., who control the destinies of the up-to-date ^'Welling\x=req-\ ton Times," have started a new paper at Forbes, under the name of "The Advocate." This is the third newspaper in Forbes, and we hope that its path will not be too liberally strewn with the thorns of adversity. The get-up of the new publ...

THE TUMULT OF THE AGE. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 15 December 1911
THE TUMULT OP THE AGE. The industrial world is in a state of riot and tumult. Our'economic system is in the process of transition, and strikes and lock-outs and industrial dissension are rife. Our legisT lation only tinkers with the question, and our industrial laws resemble the biblical Joseph's coat of many colors; but it is all only patchwork; the ideal one-piece garment will evolve out of all tnis turmoil. The latent energy which is insistently at work in the process of evolution is effervescing, and the time when every unit will contribute in some way, either directly or indirectly, towards production is not so far off. Our descendants, when far enough removed from our present social and economic conditions to be able to. survey them with a clear and unprejudiced eye, will laugh at tliem. They will wonder how it was that such a vast horde of parasites came to mass themselves' between the-producer and consumer,• and to-gather themselves together in one place' in a disproportiona...
THE MAN AND THE HOUR. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 15 December 1911
THE MAN AND THE HOUR. - Tennyson's phrase "to take Occasion by the hand," like many other happy phrases which have become familiar to everyone, has been variously paraphrased. The same idea and the same condensation of expression have produced many other such phrases. As a variation o£ Tennyson's famous phrase, -which occurs in that most beautiful of the late laureate's poems—Locksley Hall—we have someone else expressing the same thought in the phrase "taking Opportunity by the forelock." For practically illustrating the course of action denoted by this paraphrase, that Chinese taotai, who got away with a million taels of public money from Yunnan, a south-western province of China, and incontinently fled to Hongkong, where he is under the British flag, takes the proverbial cake. Things are in such a mixed state in China that the law-abiding citizen has a difficulty in determining whom ,to obey—the rebels and the new Government, or the old Manchu rulers. J The laws of meum et tuum ha...
CURRENT TOPICS. WHAT'S THE MATTER WITH PARKES? [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 15 December 1911
WHAT'S THE MATTER WITH PARKES? Last issue of tlie Parkes "Champion" boasts of an article entitled "Poor Old Forbes!" "/ The "Champion" writes "Poor Old Forbes," not because it is really sorry for Forbes, or would like very much to make it ''Rich Old Forbes," but as a means of expressing its opinion that Forbes is a poor lot, a down-in-the-mud sort, an out-of-elbows elderly person, and a played-out kind of proposition generally. Now this is unkind of our contemporary, and the class of argument it bases its article on is also unkind—unkind to its intelligence Fancy two neighbouring towns getting w.orked up into a heat over the relative drawing powers of their agricultural shows, race meetings, and so on. Supposing Parkes shows do benefit considerably by the attendance from Forbes, while the latter is not so well served by Parkes people. What then? Is Australia going to ring about it, or is the world to stand still and gape at the marvel? Forbes people, living in a terminus town, may p...
The Forbes Advocate, FRIDAY, DECEMBER 15, 1911. FORBES AND WHEAT. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 15 December 1911
®j)e Jfovte jp&ocate, FRIDAY, DECEMBER 15, 1911. FORBES AND WHEAT. The quid nuncs who have been laying down the law that profitable wheat culture in the black soil of Grawlin Plains was impossible, have received a direct slap in the face by the result of Mr C. Sly's' operations in that locality this season. Mr Sly is at the present moment taking off a crop which is going from five to six bags to the acre, and, as everyone knows, there will be very few better returns than that about Forbes .this, year. The result is a signal object lesson of the possibilities of the hitherto despised black Soil, which in patches is to be encountered in the Forbes district. It finally establishes the fact that every portion of . the district is eminently ' suitable for wheat and general agriculture. This does not, of course, interfere with its great pastoral worth, and no doubt there are many who will stick to the profitable sheep and cattle, despite all. the blandishments of the plough. This,...

Western district news. PARS CRIBBED FROM OUR EXCHANGES. ' BATHUKST. • Mr Michael Meagher, after several' weeks' holiday at Rotorua, New Zealand, returned to Batliurst this week, much improved in health. - .At a meeting of the committee of the Bathursc Turf Club on Tuesday night, presided over by Dr. Brooke\x=req-\ Moore, it was decided to appeal to the A.J.C. against the decision of the W.D.R.A. in refusing the club's application for January 26 and 27, as the dates for its annual meeting.

H. M'Intosh, R. M.. Lindsay, and F. J. Tonkin were-/appointed. to draw up the appeal.
