CHAPTER III. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 15 December 1911
CHAPTER III. -Audrey hurried away from the spot' where she had parted from Fielding. She had allowed a strange man to kiss her, and had even'kissed him in returrn. Why, she did not know; the only, thing she felt sure about was that she was neither sorry nor ashamed; This was her first' experience of the kind. Wlien- she was eighteen she had fancied herself seriously' in love with a curate, but he- was unresponsive, and so nothing came of it. , Since then she had. never had a love affair; " Men had tried to make, love to her, liad tried to kiss her, but except once wlien u man. kissed her by stratagem, and, she had cut his cheek open with a book, ' she had always managed to keep 4hem at a safe distance. She knew perfectly well that she could, have, kept Mr Fielding at a safe distance if she had wanted to. He had not even pretended to make love to 'her.. • Unable to find jm , excuse for lier conduct, she tried, to find a precedent for it in ' the experience of other girls.. During . J...

A BADLY-NEEDED BRIDGE. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 15 December 1911
A BADLY-NEEDED BRIDGE. A correspondent writes:—Some five years ago a bush fire was the cause of destroying the bridge across Ooma Creek, on the road from Forbes, to Grenfell, since which time nothing has been done to replace it. During ordinary weather the creek is dry, but whenever there is heavy rain it becomes a torrent, and very difficult to cross at all. Why does not the Shire Council do something in this matter—-to wit," build a new bridge? Not only that, but the old bridge approaches are still there, and not properly guarded. The Council really should do something to make a decent crossing. " It is a matter .of concern to several ratepayers.

NOT FAIR TO FORBES. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 15 December 1911
NOT FAIR TO FORBES. A paragraph in our last issue anent typlioid in town should be referred to, so that a misapprehension may be removed. It may have been understood from the paragraph that of the typhoid cases now in the local hospital, all or the bulk of them belong to Forbes. ■" This is very far from being the . case. The true position of affairs, is that only twelve cases of typhoid have been reported to the local authorities since the 1st October, and of these only four belong to the town of Forbes. One case comes from as far away as Blayney, one from Cudal, two from Condobolin, two from Eu\x=req-\ gowra, and so on. This is a central hospital, and has been crowded at times by patients from adjacent places where epidemics have occurred. One of these epidemics seized upon Eugowra some year or two ago, and in the official records the patients at that time entered at the Forbes hospital are given as Forbes cases—which is certainly not fair to Forbes. Certainly there is a little fev...
A SPLENDID CROP. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 15 December 1911

He is at present engaged stripping upwards of 200 acres, which is going from 7 to 9 bags to the acre, and will average 8 bags. It is an exceptionally fine looking crop of Federation, sown in carefully fallowed ground. '
CORRESPONDENCE. (It is to be distinctly understood that we do not necessarily endorse the opinions of our correspondents). JEMALONG SHIRE COUNCIL. (To the Editor "The Advocate"). [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 15 December 1911
C0RHESPWO3CL (It is to be distinctly understood that we do not necessarily endorse the opinions of our cori'espondents). JEMALONG SHIRE COUNCIL. (To the Editoi- "The Advocate"). Sir,—Allow me a small space in your valuable paper. I see by the minutes that the Jemalong Shire Council are calling tenders from various firms for the purpose of purchasing a traction engine. The plant the shire have got is a total failure. Of the first work done by the said plant, 40 odd chains of road cost the ratepayers £700. Then the engineer comes with statements regarding the cheapness of the work done by the plant. The engine is not two years old. It had to go under repairs for three holes in her fire box. I am a ratepayer, and would like to see the plant cast into the Lachlan River, and carried away with the flood. The president states he cannot spend all the surplus money with the one plant. I would suggest to return the balance to the owners. That is one way out of the difficulty. The president st...
RE POLICE METHODS. (To the Editor "The Advocate"). [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 15 December 1911
RE POLICE METHODS. (To the Editor "The Advocate"). Sir,—Kindly .permit me space in. your valuable journal to express my opinion re a matter of public concern, " viz., the manner in which the local police force, or rather two. or three of its most enthusiastic members, execute their duties. Action evidently has been taken to abate the evils caused by persons loitering and expectorating on the footpaths, i. Justly so, and not prematurely, I contend. As a casual observer, I may mention that I have noticed pedestrians (mostly ladies) frequently deprived of their rights of use of the footways by a few idle persons congregated in some of the busiest parts of the town. This nuisance, without doubt, should be put down, but what then about the class who leisurely sit out in front of their respective business houses, creating, just as effective a block to pasS.S'S Now why."" should the poflqe- make. fls^oT*pn8 another? "' -Surely one of the main qualifications of "a "constable jhould be the e...
THE WEATHER. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 15 December 1911
TH|WEftfH£ft. The eool cjittuge in the weather on Wednesday'^? evening - was probably due>to't,lie liglit rain which fell throughout the central west and • south-of the State.

SPARROW SHOOTING. MARTEL WINS THE BRACELET. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 15 December 1911
SPARROW SHOOTING. MARTEL WINS THE BRACELET. The Ladies' Bracelet slioot, under •tlie - auspices of the local gun clubT was continued at South Forbes on Wednesday afternoon-, but came to an early conclusion. The final contestants were M. Martel and A. E: Musgrave, both of whom had put up magnificent performances—in fact, the latter's 100 out of 101 birds up to the previous Wednesday, is probably an addition to Australian records; •Each brought down liis third bird, but while Martel toppled over his fourth, Musgrave failed, and the former thus became the' winner of as line a contest of skill as has ever been seen at the traps. The winner afterwards maintained his grand form by winning or dividing the bulk of the -sweeps," and accounting for 50 birds or so in the process, and seldom resorting to the second ban-el. The sweeps resulted as follows: — No. 1.—Won by R. H. Strickland, 5 kills. No, 2—Divided by M. Martel, A. 13. Musgrave, C. Cabot, 9 kills. No. 3—-Divided by F. H. Brook and M...
FORBES RIFLE RANGE. RECORD CARPENTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 15 December 1911
FORBES RIFLE RANGE. RECORD CARPENTRY. The Forbes Rifle Club promises to be very strong this year under the energetic captain, Mr J. H. Bates, and the.equally energetic secretary, Mr S. P.
