Pars About People. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 30 March 1912
J Pars About People. " I forget every case after I have decided it," said Judge Bray in London the other day. Lawyers and business men alike agree that a trained faculty of forgetting ia a great asset. " It is really the habit oi forget ting temporarily," said a well known King's Counsel subsequen— ly. "This habit, I should say, ia the secret of mental concentration, which is ir.dispensabie to success. It is only by practice that the faculty develops, avid until the I young barrister has acquired it, he i is in ditliculties. The mind be ; comes trained automatically to for get things for the time being; they are placed away in separate cells, and the door of recollection shut ; upon them, until it is necessary to I recall them onee again. For ox ! ample, I may be suddenly called j from a criminal case at the Old Bailey to argue a point of law in the High Courts, and as I leave the Old Builey I forget without an effort all about the case, and enter the High Courts with my mind en tir...

No. 47. VARIETIES OP WHEAT. j Recommended by the Department. ! In the Agricultural Gazette for February, anil In various newspapers, a list has appeared of the varieties of wheat which the Department of Agri culture is recommending farmers to grow during the season 1012. This list w.is drawn up at the Annual Wheat Conference, attended l>y Managers of Experiment Farms and Inspectors of Agriculture in the wheat districts, and it is the best expression of opinion which the Department can give, from the experience of its officers on the Experiment Farms and Farmers' Ex periment Plots, and from 'observations made during the last few seasons throughout the State. Unfortunately the word "sowing" was omitted in the notes drawn up for the country press, so that wheats recom mended for "early sowing" appear as "early wheats.'' No doubt many readers have noticed the obvious error, and have not been misled. The Conference arrived at Its conclu sions by taking the wheats previously recommende...

Archbishop on Horse Racing. "WOULD BET OX A CHRTAINTY." The Archbishop of Adelaide, the IUght Rev. Dr. O'Heilly, in tho course of an address on the religi ous agitator, in openiiig u new school l'or the Sisters of HI Josph, prayed that the agitator might be consigned to the South Pole. He referred to the fact that the relig ious agitator thought everyone who loved a horse was hopelessly out of every chance of salvation. Ho then philosophised in this fas hion, with a good deal of worldly wisdom: "You can nmko somo guess what is going to happen in politics, but in horse-racing you can mako no safe guess at all. The horse that everybody says is going to win is usually last in the race, and the horse that everybody says is going to lose is first past the judge's box. I never did bet 011 a horse in my lil'e. Where- horses are con cerned I am a perfect stupid, and if I did bet my money would be as good as gone. Still, I admit this, i£ I only had tho gil't of prophecy, which 1 assuredly ha...
