WESTERN DISTIISOT NEWS. PARS CRIBBED FROM OUR EXCHANGES. CANOWINDRA. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 23 February 1912
WESTERN DISTIISOT NEWS. ' PARS CRIBBED FROM OUR EXCHANGES. CANOWINDRA. At the local R.C. Church on Sunday morning last, the Rev. Father Doran spoke his mind regarding those, persons who call themselves Christians, and yet deny others the right to live by trying to evade payment o£ their lawful debts.

Mr Douglas stated that over £20 had been promised towards, effecting necessary improvements to ;AU Saints' Church.,. Messrs Marlin and .Bates, contractoi's, state'd that they had made arrangements for the labor required for carrying out the work, and they fixed on Wednesday, 28th; inst., as the day for commencing operations.

GAMBLING IN WHEAT. NEW DEVELOPMENT IN SYDNEY Some Startling Transactions. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 23 February 1912
GAMBLING IN WHEAT. NEW DEVELOPMENT IN SYDNEY Some Startling Transactions. For some weeks past (says the "Sun") speculation has been going on quietly in Sydney and Melbourne in "futures" in wheat transactions, the operations being mainly confined to speculators outside the ordinary trade channels. Business was done during the last three weeks for fox-ward delivery extending until the end of this year at prices showing an advance of Id to 2d per bushel beyond those obtainable for prompt and ordinary delivery. This class ol' speculation, has been going on in London and Liverpool for many years, has only developed in the local market recently.' ■ ■ " entirely new departure was made on Thursday afternoon, in wheat buying in Sydney, and the price at which business was done caused considerable excitement among several merchants who heard of the transactions. Sales are reported to have been made by either one or more speculators at 3/61 for wheat for extended delivery over the whole of 1913...
IMPORTANT MINING CASE. APPEAL TO MUDGEE SESSIONS. Dismissed with Costs. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 23 February 1912
IMPORTANT MINING CASE. APPEAL TO MUDGEE SESSIONS. Dismissed with Costs. At Hargraves, recently, Robert Anderson and his son were charged with .having unlawfully mined for gold on Crown lands, without being authorised to do so under the Mining Act regulations, or any other Act. The case was heard before Mr A. B. C. Burke, Bathurst Mining Warden. It was stated on behalf of the Crown that it appeared that for years past it had been the custom for the holders of water rights to break down the banks and sluice, with the object of securing gold. The Andersons were holders of such a right, and had from time to time broken down the banks in this way. The defendants contended that in so doing they were exercising a lawful right, inasmuch as they were authorised under the regulations to alter their races from time to.time, and also to break down the banks, where dangerous, and repair same. The Warden convicted both defendants, and in each case imposed a fine of £2, with 6/- costs, with the al...

BRUTAL OUTRAGE. TIED WITH BARBED WIRE. A mail boy named Crowe, of the Marrickville post, office, was on Tuesday night walking along the Victoria road, when he almost stumbled over the form of a woman, who was lying unconscious. Her legs were bound with barbed wire, and the barbs had penetrated her flesh in several places. The woman turned out to be Maud Evans, aged ,22, who lives with a Mrs Simmons, in Enmore Road. She informed the police that a man had jumped off the tram in Edinburgh\x=req-\ road at 9 o'clock, and walking after her, struck her a blow on the head. She did not remember anything else.

DOING NOBLE WORK. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 23 February 1912
DOING NOBLE WORK. In every large city there are always some good agencies at work, and in Sydney there is no institution Wor, thy, of greater praise than the Ladies' College of Health. This college, as its name implies, concerns itself with the health of womenfolk only, and the results of its treatment have' been eminently successful all over the land. Primarily the Ladies' College is fighting a big battle against surgical operations on women, and further, that the operation often fails to cure. In .place, the College puts forward a home treatment that has worked some wonderful cures in thousands of cases. A book, telling all about the College's treament, is published at 1/- (one shilling), but during, this monin readers of this paper can have copies sent them free, provided they remit 2d for postage. Letters should be sent to Dept. A.M., Ladies' College of Health, 17,7 Liverpool-street, Sydney.*
MOUSE-HEAD PIES. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 23 February 1912
MOUSE-HEAD PIES. The claim of a Melbourne lady against a well-known catering firm tor damages, oh the ground of finding a mouse's head in a pie manufactured by the firm, and which she had purposed consuming, is suggestive of a whole lot of things. "When the pie was opened the birds began to singf". could be easily enough now parodied into "When the pie was opened the mice began to squeak." Of course, it is after all only a matter of education and environment. I4> some countries people eat frogs, in others a delicacy is snails, in yet others birds-nests are a delectable dish, while our own natives go nap on snakes and white' grubs. It is conceivable enough that a taste could be worked up in mouse heads also. . It only wants a little practice, and a society for the propagation of the manufacture of mouse-head pies might do the trick. George III., of illustrious memory, was a quaint monarch, as everybody knows. Amongst his chidf table joys was apple pie, and the old King would have ...
THE TOWN BAND. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 23 February 1912
THE TOWN BAND, It's a poor community that can't raise a band of some sort, and when there are not a few people to make a noise in a town; that town may be considered defunct. If Forbes wants to assert that it isn't dead altogether, then it's-time that it stirred up its band. The Lord knows it's a poor enough sort of band, because His omnipresence is a guarantee that he must have heard its music. 'The only other street music we have.baa is the cacophony of the Salvarmy, and the fiddling of itinerant musicians, always disremembering the caterwaul of the nightly cat, and the bark of tne mongrel dogs, who bay the moon in the absence of anything else to disturb their rest. There hasn't, so far as we know (and we are credited with not missing much), been a band practice since this paper came into existence, . We are out to abate nuisances, so far as lies in our power, but we assure the; town band that we do not regard it as a nuisance, provided rit Has~a"practice now^ahd again, so" that w...

VALEDICTORY. A PROMISING FUTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 23 February 1912
VALEDICTORY. PROMISING FUTURE. Mr James Russell, a young man in the employ of the Forbes branch of the Australian carrying company of Wright Heaton and Co., was on Tuesday given a hearty and sincere send-off at Gilchrist's Globe Hotel by his fellow employees. "Jimmy," as he is popularly known, has, on ac\x=req-\ :ount of his intelligence, his assiduity, and his business methods, a, bright future before him. It is rarely that so.young a man has bouquets of this kind thrown at him, but extracts from a letter written by the managing director of the company to the manager of the Cobar branch show that the directorate is fully seized of this young man's abili ties. For instance, just a phrase or two:—"He is one of the best men in the employ"; "first-class bookkeeper, and must prove a success wherever he goes"; "you may trust him implicitly." That bunch of bouquets from the head of one of the biggest carrying companies in the Commonwealth ought to carry him through. He left for Cobar on T...
OUR LADIES' LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 23 February 1912
OUR LADIES' LETTER. (By Reseda). Sydney's latest attraction, Tiny •wn, is a well patronised place. It : as its temporary existence in the xhlbition Building. The huge hall is divided into two. The first part is the village where the tiny 'oik are supposed to dwell. A miniature carriage, drawn by two tiny little ponies, led by a hop o' my thumb, who calls himself a man, oyer whom children of 7 tower, tears wildly round under the personal supervision of an ugly misshapen edition of a midget policeman. This one certainly has a man's voice. He is a dwarf for certain; his arms and lower limbs are dwarfed, but his head and the^rest of his trunk are a fair size . The little carriage has a smiling pretty little midget in it, who afterwards figures on the stage. They are each in their several shops, arranged bazaar fashion, and most of them are kept busy signing post cards. There is one little Frenchman there, very tiny, very pallid, but very vivacious. He is somewhere about 50 years of age,...
