CONDOBOLIN. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 8 March 1912
CONDOBOLIN. Our member, Andy Kelly, lias received official intimation that, in response to his request, the park vote this year within his electorate has been increased from £90 to £100. Condobolin receives £ 10, Bogan Gate £10, Fifield £10, Wamboyne £5. Trustees concerned will receive notice in due time. Messrs M. Carroll and T. Rand, both of Condobolin, have purchased a coachbuilding business in Trundle. All the blacksmiths of the town are overrun with work. It would be no exaggeration to say the traps now in their yards, if lined up, would reach pretty well the length of Bathurst-street, half-a-mile. The Rev. E. S. Benyon, who has been in charge of the condobolin parish since September last, has been promoted to the parish of Geurie. Mr Benyon preached his farewell sermon on Sunday evening, but will not be leaving the district until after the confirmation service on the 10 th March. Regret is being freely expressed that Condobolin is losing his good services. It's time the swimmi...

The force of circumstances has compelled Michael to go into retirement for the period named.
BENA. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 8 March 1912
BENA. (From Our Own Correspondent). There have been a few losses o£ valuable draught horses lately. Mr C. W. Ridley last week lost a 2-year\x=req-\ old draught filly, for which he had refused £40, while Mr G. R. Hoad and Mr Len .Ridley lost most useful horses. The latter gentleman only purchased his horse last month for something in the vicinity of £40. In the first two cases flatulent colic was the cause of death, while the latter died through over heating. A meeting of the Bena Amateur Race Club was held on Saturday last. The energetic and wide awake secretary, Mr J. Mooney, is getting everything ready for the races on Easter Monday. I believe he is meeting with great support as regards membership. , The l'aces on Easter Monday promise to eclipse all previous records. Showers of rain passed over the district on Saturday last, but the falls were patchy. Some places report from 50 to 60 points. 3/3/12.
GUNNING CRICKETERS' BALL. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 8 March 1912
GUNNING CRICKETERS' BALL. (By Our Special Representative.) OuWednesday evening last, with the moon shedding her silvery light over that portion of Australia which rejoiccs in the name of Bedgerabong, the youth and beauty of those parts assembled in the local School of Arts to enjoy in full measure the grand ball organised by the members of the Gunning Cricket Club. The roads leading to the rendezvous resounded with the chatter of the merrymakers, and the clatter of their -willing steeds, and at 9 o'clock the ball was set rolling, and the first run was scored. Those ever willing concertina experts, Messrs Jim M'Cann and Bob Grant, were assisted in their musical efforts by Mr Will Nash, of Bogan Gate, who rendered good service on the piano, and the trio made a capital orchestra, and their efforts went far to make the ball the success it was. The umpire of the 'evening was Mr Harry Doubleday, and although on one or two occasions his decisions were questioned by a barracker, he carried ...
GOOLAGONG. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 8 March 1912
GOOLBGONG. (From Our Own Correspondent). The weather continues very hot and dry. Rain is badly wanted for grass and ploughing. Most of the farmers are ploughing, but find the ground very hard and difficult. Only two Goonigal players were included in the Goolagong team which played Trajere on 24th ult., viz., Edmunds and M'Innes, who belonged to Goolagong club long before the Goo\x=req-\ nigal club was established. So where does the unfairness come in? Stanley Haydon is an inmate of the Cowra hospital, suffering from typhoid. James Bartley returned from the same institution last week. Cattle continue to die on the common from thistle poisoning. Thirty points of rain were recorded locally on Friday. The river has risen slightly these last few days. A cricket match was played between Goolagong and Goonigal, on the former's ground, on 3rd instant. Goolagong won by 178 runs, the scores being:—Goolagong, 246; Goo\x=req-\ nigal, 68.

GENERAL. At the monthly 'meeting of the School of Arts,.held on Friday, 25th February, Mr H. J; Greenhalgh was appointed to act as hon. librarian for the month of March, the library to be open three nights a week, on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday nights.

It was also decided to call a.' general meeting of members on 15th March, to decide if additional trustees are required in connection' with the institution.

The storm also visited the eastern and southern parts of the district, but,scarcely enough rain fell to lay^the.dust in other divisions.

TOWN AND SHIRE. THOSE BURRS AND STUMPS. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 8 March 1912
TOWN AND SHIRE. THOSE BURRS AND STUMPS. It may be remembered that at a recent meeting of the Municipal Council Alderman Wallace Hunter resented in strong terms the request of the Jenialong Shire Council that the\x=req-\ Municipal Council should fill in an old cellar on the Condobolin road; (2) remove some stumps at the intersection of that and the Marsden, road; (3)" destroy Bathurst burrs within the municipality. The Shire Council on Saturday was in receipt of a letter from the Municipal Council in regard to this, and Shire Councillors had five minutes of retort courteous. "Is .that true, Mr EngineerV." said •Councillor Low, when the,reading,of • the letter: announced that the Municipal Council considered (1) the cellar was.on a reserve; (2) that there were no stumps; and (3) that the Council was dealing effectively-with burrs. ■ • Councillor Noakes said there were burrs on all roads within, the municipality. : Councillor Brown-gave evidence of burrs on the South Condobolin road, ....
OUR LADIES' LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 8 March 1912
OUR LADIES' LETTER. (By Reseda). .Any .visitor coming to Sydney this week could not accuse us of being a dirty people Avitli a dirty city, for the floods of rain swept away all loose debris, and left the streets and foot\x=req-\ ways so clea'n that, as the old expression has it, one might almost eat one's meals from off the footpaths and roadways.. It is to be hoped this clean condition. of things will last. It is not likely to, though, since we are a people who, from the youngest to the oldest, cast on the ground at haphazard whatever we are finished with, or do not need. The Municipal Councils are up' in arms against these bad habits of the people, which clearly show a bad upbringing, and yet those self-same Municipal Councils do not see the need of flushing our streets every midnight or early morning, to free them from the troublesome dust that gathers during tlie busy days. Talking of Municipal: —Councils,\x=req-\ their latest act is one directly opposed to ladies, and it is a v...

MACHINERY ON AN UP-TO-DATE DAIRY FARM. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 8 March 1912
MACHINERY ON AN UP-TO-DATE DAIRY FARM. To obtain the best possible results from a dairy, it is absolutely essential that the machinery used shall be the very best obtainable. Times are so strenuous that people should not keep second rate machinery longer than they can possibly help; the best is .always the cheapest in the long run, and frequently costs no more in the first instance. To build up the fortunes of a dairy,;and avoid leakages in profits, aiid"L-K-G" Milking Machine plant must be installed; it 'is quicker, and more sanitary than milking by hand. Machine milking by the "L-K-G" Machines is as-much superior to hand-milking'as the separation of milk by the "Alfa-Layal" Separators is superior to ! the old fashioned method of setting, milk in pans. Then, of course, it goes -without say nig. that an "Alfa-Laval" Separator will be installed,-and-a Bali cock Tester should also .be regularly used. It is no use keeping cows' which do not pay their way. We have a very large assortmen...
