Mr M'Mahon is in his 82nd year, whilst Mrs M'Mahon is 10 years younger. Both are hale and hearty, and reside in their own cottage beyond the race- course, near Gum Swamp. Yesterday there gathered round them all their progeny, who number- ed five sons and one daughter, all married, and residing in the Forbes district, 22 grandchildren, and three great grandehildren. The whole of the four generations were grouped, and photographed by Mr Howe, photographer. The sons are Messrs Fred, Thomas, Albert, Daniel, and John M'Mahon, and the only daughter living is Mrs J. M'Kellar. One son, John, died young, about 40 years ago, but the name was bestowed on another son born subsequently. The relationship of some of the members of the clan was somewhat bewildering at times. A tiny chit of seven years nursing another of two, would grave- ly inform you that this...

CONDOBOLIN P.P. BOARD. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 23 February 1912
CONDOBOLIN P.P. BOARD. Says "The Lachlander," concerning the last meeting of the above:—"The, old, old story of wire netting arrears had to receive attention. The Board generally faces this with something of the same displeasure as the average kid does a dose of medicine. Fortunately the past year has, by the vigilance and diligence of the Board, brought these "arrears nearly to the minimum, but to reach finality is about on a par with the invention of perpetual motion—and all, or nearly all, through the accursed penal interest clause, whereby the debtor scarcely ever knows his position. To facilitate book keeping in this respect, Auditor Lee is to be asked to open up a set of books for the purpose, and to doubly ensure promptness in payments, the secretary was impressed with the very emphatic instruction to rigidly carry out the resolution already passed, and entered in the minute book, of placing all unpaid accounts instantly in the hands of the Board's solicitor—with instructions...

SAVED FROM THE BURNING. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 23 February 1912
SAVED FROM THE BURNING. Perhaps the best-known journalist In N.S.W. is Mr W. B. Melville. In the coursfe of a grateful letter to the physician in charge of the Neal Institute, on being delivered from the drink curse, Mr Melville says: — "Thanks to the efficacy of your treatment, my brain is clear, hand steady, and heart light. I have a capacity for work and pleasure in life not known by me for twenty-five years." The Institution's address is: Woodbury-street, Marrickville, Sydney.

THE COST OF LIVING. (To the Editor). [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 23 February 1912
THE COST OF LIVING. (To the Editor). The cost of living is a matter which affects every one. It has gone up considerably of late, and out of all proportion to the increase in wages, which has accrued through the Industrial unions. Strikes and lockouts make a harvest for the middleman. When the Newcastle strike was on, thousands of tons of coal, which was practically refuse, were sold at £ 2/10/-per ton. Similarly every rise in wages is followed by a larger increase in the price of necessary commodities. , The middleman, whose habitat is mostly in Sydney, passes the burden on, and leaves the consumer to carry the baby. It is the consumer who pays for the increase in wages and the shortening of hours of labor. This is as it should be, but for the cruel rapacity of the middleman, and the unfair incidence of the burden. For instance, the civil servant, the man whose salary has not been increased, and others who have not received the benefit of an increase in income, are bearing the burd...
THE IMPORTANCE OF DUPLICATE PARTS. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 23 February 1912
! — THE IMPORTANCE OF DUPLICATE PARTS. Before purchasing any piece of machinery, we should thoroughly satisfy ourselves that we can obtain duplicate parts when required. Also, we think any firm is not treating'its customers fairly if it cannot supply duplicate parts when required. We have often known expensive machinery to be idle for quite a long time owing to the great difficulty in obtaining duplicate parts for same; in fact, sometimes the agents either could not or would not supply duplicate parts, and therefore the machinery became worthless. The supplying of duplicate parts for our "Alfa Laval" Separators and L-K-G Milking Machines is a very important branch of our business, and we give it our most careful attention, both as to supplying duplicate parts, and also to despatching them quickly; we endeavour to forward all duplicate parts the same day as we receive the order, especially if the parts are wired for. Owing to the many thousands of "Alfa-Laval" Separators and L-K-G Mi...
WYALONG. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 23 February 1912
WYALONG. Mr Charles Small, who had booked his passage to Ireland, and should have sailed on the 14th inst., had reluctantly to return to West Wyalong-, in connection with the will of the late J. Hoobin, slie being one o£ the executors. Mr Small, however, joined his boat at Melbourne on Wednesday, 21st inst. It is stated that a number of prominent farmers liave decided in future not to contribute any support to the local hospital, in consequence of the committee's refusal to appoint Dr. J. J. Maloney, as well as Dr. F. C. S. Shaw, on the medical staff of the hospital. The Government have also decided to withdraw the subsidy, owing to the committee refusing to comply with the Ministerial minute that duly qualified practitioners in all towns are to be appointed on the hospital staff. At a meeting of the Wyalong branch of the Farmers and Settlers' Association, a presentation was made to Mr S. M. Smith, late Council Clerk at Wyalong, who has also been secretary to the" Farmers and Settle...
