A LOCAL TRAINING STABLE. CHARLIE SMITH'S STRING. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 20 February 1912
A LOCAL TRAINING STABLE. CHARLIE SMITH'S STRING. There are few things more enjoyable to the lover of the racehorse than a visit to'a good training stable, and a cliat with -the man who puts the finished article on the track in a shimmer of satin coat, and a stored up ..reservoir of energy that bursts its bounds unless expended. We paid a visit to Charlie Smith, the local trainer, on Saturday, and had a look at his string in their boxes in Gren\x=req-\ fell-street. Despite the awful weather we have had recently, the six horses we saw were in the best of health, and bore evidence of the care bestowed on them. Grooming is half-feeding, and Charlie and his lads are, from the apearance of the horses, not afraid of elbow grease. The first box we came, to contains Speculate, Dr. Delohery's chestnut, big and muscular, and preparing for the picnic races in April. He is a five-year-old by Iolanthus, „dam unknown, and the popular medico raced him here last year-at the picnic races, and won the...
SHIRE AND MUNICIPALITY. (To the Editor "Forbes Advocate"). [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 20 February 1912
SHIRE AND MUNICIPALITY. (To the Editor "Forbes Advocate"). Sir,-—I read with some interest the discussion in the Municipal Council at last Tuesday night's meeting; in reference to a letter received from the Jenialong Shire Council, asking that a; cellar-hole in close proximity to the Condoholin Road might be filled in, and a. few stumps in Bolam's Lane might be destroyed. It would\x=req-\ be a matter of a few shillings expense to break in the cellar-hole, and make it safe, and thus perhaps avert a serious accident. . Three main ro(ads converge into Bolam's Lane, and part of the short road is firmed, but. the Council ran, the forming into a big red gum-tree, evidently thinking it too costly, to remove. In dodging round this tree, a stranger in the, dark is very apt to run into one of the stumps asked to be removed.' Probable cost of removal, 2/-. As for the burrs, their numerous presence speaks for themselves, and the shire, representing the country, should have, a perfect .riglit to...

CORRESPONDENCE, &lt; (It is to be distinctly understood that we do not necessarily endorse the opinions of our correspondents). • THAT MOVE-ON CLAUSE. CTn the Editor ""Forbes Advocate"). Sir,—rln reading your paper of the Q,th inst., my attention was attracted: to a report of a meeting of the Forbes Municipal Council, and headed the "Move-On Clause." As one w'iio has earned his!honest "crust",in thfe-..Forbes district,,for.,'the past ten years,' 'I^craye space- in •your valuable paper, ons behalf of the working classes,' to 'enter a vigorous protest against that tyrannical and liberty-: destroying, by-law passed by the Council, known now as'the "Move-On Clause." Surely the Mayor and Alderman Hunter do not want telling that the streets of Forbes belong wholly and solely to the people. The people's money lias made them, and the people still pay for their_main\x=req-\ tenance, and yet it seems a dastai'dly thing that those people are debarred the free; use of_. them, and all to...
