jYarroiiiiiie. Mr. Sharpe, the Narromine letter carrier, \va.s thrown from bis horse on Saturday last, and sustained severe in juries. He was rendered unconscious for some time, and for several hours was in a critical condition. Though still suffering from the effects of the fall he is now progressing favorably, though some weeks must elapse bo fore ho will be able to resume duties. The same animal threw one of his sons a few weeks ago, and broke the lad's arm. He is evidently too spir ited for the Shiarpe family. The heat in Narromine on Monday and Tuesday brought forth many com plaints. At one of the hotels the mer cury climbed steadily up until the 106 mark was reached, when the thermo meter burst—several residents also went on the burst in fruitless endea vours to allay the quenchless thirst which the intolerable heat induced. To add to the general discomfort a hot wind drove clouds of dust everywhere on its furnace breath, and tine desire to remain alive under such conditions f...

Bogan Gate. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 25 January 1912
Bogan Gate. I More rain. The Gate is surely gain ing favor in the sight of Jupiter Plu vius, that ancient having condescend ed to pour forth silvery favors quite frequently during the past few weeks. Yesterday nearly an inch of rain fell, while around the district very severe storms were experienced, filling tanks to overflowing, washing away fences, and doing a lot of damage. Influenza is prevalent in our district, the principal victims being the towns folk. Mrs. Thompson, wife of our popular stationmaster, is at present an inmate of Nurse Kemp's private hospital, Parlces, with a severe attack of influenza. During the storms on Monday, the telephone wires became so confused and impaired that the post office was compelled to transmit all messages from the railway station, the whrrr, babble, and fragments of conversation in all directions, rendering all efforts at direct communication futile. Mr. J. G. Dudley, headmaster at the public school here, is at present, witln his wife and fa...

Only for the presence of a neighbour more serious results may have followed. On the alarm being given Mr. Fritz Bagge , was quickly on the spot, and rescued [ the old lady from her perilous position. The mail train on leaving the plat l form last Thursday evening was held up for a short time through straying stock getting on the line.

Swiuey, who has been can vassing the western districts, paid a visit here, and appointed Mr. P. Web ster as local agent for the enrolment of those desirous of becoming mem bers of 'such union.

The building trade still appears to keep brisk in this town. There are sever...
