At Even-Tide. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 13 January 1912
At Evon-TidQ. The last long shadows fainter grow, And twilight dim brings falling dow; My world of toil I shut away— Ah, sweetest thought I ever know— I'm going, dearie, Home to youl It isn't growing dark for mo, Though softly fades the dreamy blue The path I know—beats fast my heart For roses scent the garden through, And lead mo, dearie, Home to youl Tho lights of home—they shine for me An open door—her eyes shine too— Dear, clinging arms and loving lips, I'm waiting for your welcome truol Weo dearie mine, Homo means youl The steamship Goldmouth steamed a distance of 11,791 miles in fifty-two days, without onco stopping Hie engines or I checking the generation of steam in tho main boilors.

Flukes. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 13 January 1912
,rFluk( J' is ono of the game-words. "Dis caid" is mother. Fiquet supplied the lan guage with discard. Billiards endowed it with fluke. And it was billiards that t di'l tho mare remarkable thing thereby. Khikf lias a status apart in the world of words. It is, that is tu say, a word abso lutely without a synonym. A fluke is a fluke; there is 110 othjr word for it. No doul.it other .voids are used by the care less, casual speaker, to which the significa tion of fluke is supposed by other careless, casual people to attach. Our ordinary social parlance is like that of Cousin Feenix ; we do not put too fine a point upon it. One ot us. and the unlikeliest, catches the skirt.? of happy chance, aiiu lands himself a winner. A mere fluke, wo say. That, however, depends on whether the fortunate person Mas out to catch the skirts of something else, and caught the skirts of happy chance instead. That would properly constitute a fluke. If he was out for nothing in particular, and grabbed at the s...
THE MILKY WAY. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 13 January 1912
THE MILKY WAY. The ship was sinking, the steam pump had collapsed and volunteers had been call ed to man the substitute. Up and down, up and down went the great handle. One by one the pumpers fell over ex hausted, until at last but one continued at his post. Ills great muscles stood out over him like whip-cords as ho steadily forced the piston-rod into the huge tube. Presently In the distanoo sounded the whistle of a tug. The boat was saved. The grateful passengers crowded round the hero. "It was nothing," lie said, waving them off. "It was mere child's play for me, for I"—the people pressed closer in order to learn his wonderful secret—"I used to work on a dairy farm."

Gray, Miller, anil Patterson were appointed to collect funds for the defence of the producers' interests before the Ar bitration Court in connection with the claims of the Rural Workers' Union.

RELIC OF A PIGMY RACE. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 13 January 1912
RELIC OF A PIGMY RACE. Among a gruesome collection of littlo human skulls recently offered for sale by auction was one of surprising interest. It was a man's head, no larger than a lien'a egg, and is uniquo in every way. No ono has soon anything liko this rolic before. It was obtained from Mexico, wltero from timo immemorial there has been a tradi tion. of a race of miniature pigmies who inhabited tho northern part of the coun try hundreds of years before the Aztecs were -conquered by Cortes. They wcro said to have'buried their dead in rocks. This particular example had long been in the. possession, of an old Mexican ranch man in a remote part of the mountains, "and had, 'lie explained, been in the pos session of his fainily for years and years, descending: fx-oni father to son. It was acquired by . a mining engineer engagod with a prospecting party, and has been examined /by a number of cminont eth nologists, who have seen nothing like it.

CANADA THROUGH AUSTRALIAN:::::: SPECTACLES:::::: TORONTO TO WINNIPEG CHAPTER XI. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 13 January 1912
THROUGH AUSTRALIAN :: :: :: SPECTACLES :: :: :: TORONTO TO WINNIPEG by rgbert McMillan CHAPTER XI. One day I met a policeman in a park in Toronto, and fell into conversation with him. He told me a lot of wonderful things, for policemen have a wide experience, and among the things he told me was this: Lake Ontario is the biggest fresh water lake in the world, and it never freezes over because it is so deep, so wild and restless. •He told me a lot of other things that were equally interesting and, probably, equally untrue. The tendency for people to think that our town pump is the biggest in the world, is very pronounced. As a matter of fact, Ontario is the smallest of the five great lakes, and the largest—Lake Superior has an area of 31,500 square miles, while Ontario has only 5,400, yet the policeman told me in all good faith, that Ontario was the biggest lake in the world. When I found that he was born in Toronto, I forgave him and smiled, for I like people to take a pride in their...

The Act passed by Parliament last session making tax payable on salaries over .!:;>00, with certain exemptions, is now in force, and hence a considerably larger number of people will be called upon for returns. The penalty for failing to comply with the law in this respect is a £20 fine.
CRICKET. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 13 January 1912
CRICKET. Having tipped tlxis English team long before the first test, and after their defeat therein, as likely win ners of the rubber, I was not sur prised at their making it "one all" in Melbourne. But a win by eight wickets was a bit more than I an ticipated. As things went, I think that if Douglas had sent Hearne in first with Hobbs on the last day, in stead of after lthodes and Gunn, England would have won by ten wickets. Barnes bowled like a man be witched for his "five for 44" on the first day. It was actually a greater performance than when here with Jones' team he took six N.S.W. wickets l'or 2 4 in one innings. In (ho first test, l)e took, in &lt;i)J, 1'our for 179, and in the second test S for 14 0, or twelve at 2G.50 apiece for llie two matches. Foster in tile first test took 7 for 107, and in the second seven for 143. This was good enough to beat Barnes in the two matches, being 14 at 2-1.2S apiece. Hansford's rot-stopping 43 was characteristic of the man who wo...

THE FORBES TIMES. ATUKD.W, JANUARY 13, 1P12. THE J,A.IH>K COM F10KKNC15. Political interest, just at present, apart from the passing concern about, the management ol' the Stale railways, centres very largely in the doings of the conference of interstate delegates from the Poli tical Labor Leagues that, is being held in 1-lobart. It was a most praiseworthy idea, in the health and recreative interests of the for tunate representatives, to have the conference at Ilobart, which at this season of the year is one of the. most; attractive holiday resorts in Australia. But that: hy the way. The assembly is of sufficient im portance to demand the attendance and attention of the Prime Minister of the Commonwealth, the Premier of Now South Wales, and a number of other almost equally prominent politicians from the various States, while it. is also noted that the pre sident of the New South AVales La bor Council, Mr. Hector Lamond, ar rive'! in Sydney on Wednesday last on his return from Amer...
