OUR LADIES' LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 8 December 1911

OMR LADIES' LETTER. / . ■ / (By Reseda). / Tuesday, November 28 th, dawned a dreary wet day, and the State Government House Garden Party was looming in the wet distance. Occasionally glints of sunshine came and went like the smile of the Cheshire . cat in Lewis Carrol's famous fairy tale. ■ Telephones were set in motion, and many queried the same old query, "Has the Garden Party been postponed?" "No madame," was the reply, arid elderly matrons and • younger maidens viewed with dismay the prospects of getting^ theiiv.finery ruined by the sopping rain."" At last, just as that Cheshire cat vanished eventually, and only left behind its smile, so the rain clouds vanished, and at 4 p.m. the ,smiling sunshine alone was left, and the Garden Party eventuated;. 4000 guests had been invited. More than 3000 were expected, and but a poor 600 ventured .-forth. Noble six hundred! they disported' themselves on the wet lawns with their dainty shoes, and got their still daintier feet wet, and laid up...

"RACING TORPEDO BOAT ON WHEELS." [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 8 December 1911

"RACING TORPEDO BOAT ON WHEELS." A curiosity is to be seen at the motor garage of Messrs Summers and Peppercorn, Rankin-street, just now, in the1 shape of what one visitor described as a cross between a motor cycle and a motor punt. It is known as Bedelia. and is said to be the only machine: of its kind in Australia, though- in frequent use in the old country.:' It looks for all the world like a racing torpedo boat on wheels, and 'as far as motor cars are concerned, .is a real odd lot.... The curiosity was left for repairs with Messrs Summers and Peppercorn by the owner, who,has gone on-to Sydney, and it shows their ability to handle any and all classes of cars that one of this nature has been: entrusted to their care. A look round. ;their garage just now, by the way, will- show what a diversity of machines they' take in hand. . \ ■

NOT A "FISH YARN." [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 8 December 1911

NOT A "PISH YARN." Mi- Thurston, operator at the local ! telegraph office, is an enthusiastic disciple of Isaac "Walton, and he lias a fish story to tell tnat from the lips of, some Waltonians we have known, might be regarded: as a tale pure and simple. Mr Thurston's story is in two parts. Part one dates twelve montns back, when a.fish got away with one of his hooks and ■ its wire attachment. A Part two belongs to a quite recent date,, when Mr Thurston caught a fish. The fish looked to be 61bs weight at least, but to its captor's surprise, when put on the scales proved to be only 'libs. Then Mr Thurston held a post mortem, to find out what was the trouble, and . as a second surprise, found imbedded in the fish's liver the very hook that lie lost twelve months ago. ; There could be little doubt of it, because attached to the hook was a piece of the identical wire he always uses, made up in his own particular way • of twisting and attaching it. The hook was almost perished, but the fw...

NARRANDERA SEWERAGE. OBJECT LESSON FOE FORBES. Colorless and Odorless. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 8 December 1911

URMIDEU SEWEM8E. OBJECT LESSON FOE FORBES. Colorless and Odorless. It is a remarkable thing that in these hygienic days, when we have learnt that filth means disease, sewerage system is the last thing that is tackled in country towns. Even Brisbane, the capital of Queensland, still hugs the old disease-disseminating cesspan to its municipal bosom. There was some excuse before the septic tank was evolved, and it's all vei-y well to plead lack of funds, but nothing is too expensive where the helth of the community is at stake. What's all the world to a man if his wife's a widow? Judging by the reception of a letter from Mr William A. Tankey, clerk of the Narrandera Municipal Council, sent to Mr J. W. Mills, Town Clerk of Forbes, and read at Tuesday's meeting of'this Council, Forbes has begun to think about moving in the matter; of a better sanitary system than that of the cesspan. Mr Mills, during his visit to the Local Government Conference in Sydney in Oct., had made inquiries from ...
