The Forbes Advocate, TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 27, 1912. A MILLION CLUB. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 27 February 1912
Jfotte Rotate, TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 27, 1912. A MILLION CLUB. What is known as a "Million Club" has been mooted in Sydney. The object or the members of such a body would be to use every means within their power of hastening the time when Sydney will be a city of one million inhabitants. This-idea is borrowed from the United States of America, where nearly' every town of almost any dimensions lias an or\x=req-\ ganisation of the kind. The diffei-\x=req-\ ence between a Sydney club and the American clubs, is that the former aims at the further bloating of a population bubble, already inflated to bursting point, while, the latter are part and parcel of a scheme which, by benefiting the unit, benefits the whole. The American clubs aim at the increase in population and prosperity of America, the Sydney organi sation, judging by those who are moving in it, would not look beyond the aggrandisement of Sydney.. . It is an amazing thing—but perfectly well\x=req-\ known to those who have experien...

TALK ABOUT THE HOT TIMES. A FOUR DAYS' FURNACE. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 27 February 1912
TALK ABOUT THE HOT TIMES. FOUR BAYS' FUKNACE. The 'years 1905 and 10OG are usually regarded by, present residents of Forbes as being hitherto the hottest experienced, and some figures in relation to those years may be interesting, in view of the hot time "we had this year.
