GULAR. We learn from Mr. Jenkins, secre tary of the Gular Jockey Club, Unit Mr. Peter Ferguson has presented tlie club with a starting macnine which was used at tlie Guair races on Friday. Tins is but another of Air. Ferguson's many spirited acts. General disappointment is felt by the ratepayers of the iiourbaii Bore Trust at the small increase in the iiow of tlie bore since Mr. Contractor Crawford cleaned, out and deepened the bore.

MANILDBA MEMS. The general topic now is the hot weat her and dust. There appears to bo a dry spell on, and t\g a result waier for domestic purposes is running very short at many places, and feed for stock is past diminishing. The corn crops are a failure due to want of rain. A large area was planted 'too. The stock are now eating off in most places. Wheat is still coming in pretty freely, Daiton Bros, having some ' 30,000 hags stacked. Chaff is also coming in a groat deal. More would ho brought forward but owing to want of Urucks there is now place where it can be stacked convenient to the line, so as a result teams tors and cutters are almost idle.

DIRTY DRINKING WATER IN BATHURST. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 31 January 1912
DIRTY DRINKING WATER IN BATHURST. _ No wonder JLSatlrarst is becoming ue pnpulatod, what with Iho heat, the dust, and the genoral funeral aspect of the tott'ii in general, the poor people of that maligned town have now another burden to contend with, as this excerpt from a Bathurst paper will show:— Wo were yesterday shown a sample of wa'lur drawn through the tap at the residence of Mr. R. Holgato, Lower Rockett-.street that could be recom mended neither for drinking purposes, for the shower, nor for washing clot hes. It was a four-otinco bottle full, and when allowed tjt> stand for a few seconds the sediment, of a red clay and [ sandy nature, occupied fully one-fourtli of the spacc. At a pinch, it might do for a shower, it would certainly turn white clothes yellow, while for , drinking purposes—well mostl people would prefer beer. Mr. Bolgate's houso nuisit bo on the dead end of the water main, or close to it. If not., there are reasonable grounds for an in vestigation.

A BURGLAR SCARE. Some commotion was caused m a residence in Byng-street, on Monday night. It appears that a man had been seen prowling about the house, and under suspicious circumstances, hut nothing came of it, At the .house nest door the people were bordering on panic, fearful that the burglar would pay them a visit. Shortly after dark, one of the inmates aslced her brother for a match, when he, in a joke, handed her a box of vestas, and on opening it a variety of Xmas beetle fastened on to her hand. She scream ed, and her screaming becoming con tageous, spread all over the house, all hands taking part in it, expecting that Bill Syltes in legions were burgling the house. The neighbors, becoming alarmed, also rushed in to render as sistance, and when the real state of affairs came to be known, recrimina tions followed and the subsequent proceedings would be interesting read ing matter if we were to publish them.
