CHAPTER XI. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 23 February 1912
CHAPTER XL He ran away only, so far as his sister's house in Surrey. Possibly his choice of direction was influenced by the sub-conscious idea- that he might get inspiration from the company of his seven-yeaer-old daughter" Alice. The thick-legged pet and tyrant of a boys' school was far enough from Mrs Helme's conception: of "a poor little thing," as, for the' matter of that, was her guardian from, being: a "frump." Mrs Fred. Rawlins was a younger and livelier edition of her brother. „ Like him, she was lean and brown, but with eyes; that were soft, instead of keen, and an untidy mouth. There are. faces that give and faces that take; hers emphatically gave. Fred, was large and pink and sandy; a good fellow, an athlete, and - an efficient master, but rather stupid. They had no children, but instead that air of knowingness not uncommon between young, childless, married people, yhich seems to imply that they have got something ever so much better.

THE CROW. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 23 February 1912
THE GROW. •Director Scott, of the Dubbo Filatures Board, • champions the cause of that-much-despised bird, the crow. A.t a meeting of the Dubbo Board last week, Mr Scott wanted the Board to abolish the bonus given for crows, explaining that crows eat up the dead bodies of rabbits and sheep, and thus destroy harbors for the maggot flies. The crows did not, he said, do enough damage to warrant the expenditure of money in trying to exterminate them. The amount, of good done by crows fully compensated for what harm they may do; The only harm by erows was done during the lambing season.
