IMMIGRATION. Some Interesting British Statistics. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 6 April 1912

Some Interesting British Statistics. Tub piist year has witnessed u groat increase in the number of arrivals from over-sea into this State and the other States of the Commonwealth. Tho re vival of the policies of assisted immi gration dates from the year JOOti in New South Wales, Victoria, Queensland, and Western Australia, and from 19.10 in South Australia. The propaganda work carried on, both at home and abroad, during the past live or six years is now bearing fruit. It is safe to say that never at any time in its history has Australia been brought so promin ently before the residents of the United Kingdom, and never have the farmers and artisans of liingland, Ireland, Scot land, and Wales been made so fully aware of the opportunities which this young country offers as now. This is more especially true since Hie estab lishment of the Iiigh Commissioner for Australia in London, notwithstanding the vigorous advertising campaigns pre viously conducted by the Agents-Gene ral for the S...

SEEING SYDNEY BY MOTOR. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 6 April 1912

SEEING SYDNEY BY MOTOR. Duiuko the coming Muster holidays re sidents from the country who visit Sydney should make a point of calling at llie Immigration and Tourist : I'.uroan for information in regard to the daily service of motors through the best known suburban districts. These speedy, roomy ears, capable of carrying from t wenl y-l'our to thirty people, leave Ohalli.s House twice daily.

DANGEROUS LIVING. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 6 April 1912

DANGEROUS LIVING. When wakeful Hebe brings me up My seeming harmless early cup, Science reminds me I've enjoyed A highly-poisonous alkaloid, Which slays the nerves with its abuses And plays the deuce with all one's juices. The breakfast coffee I adore so Is just as fatal, only mora so. Tho glass of laser, icy cool Pray, who would touch it but a fool. When in Its amber depths one sees Gout, rheumatism, Bright's disease? Black whisky bottle, come not nigh To scare my apprehensive eye, For in thy dark recess reposes Grim liver trouble and cyrrhosis; In alcohol, wlmt'er its form, A million million perils swarm. But deadlier yet the rain-cloud's daughter. The much-belauded fatal water; The monstrous regiment ®f germs in this clear death-trap sports and saui rms; Xav. ever graver yet its faults; It holds such minerals and salts As till your gall with chalk and rubblo And start all kinds of kidney trouble. Meat? Why, a man had better oat Henbane and aconite than meat, it breeds a poison, w...
