Rabbits on the Common. FENCING IN WARRENS. Mayor Edwards' Effective Methods. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 13 January 1912
Rabbits on the Common. VEXCLXG IX WA1XH1SNS. Mayor JMwai'tls' .El'l'octivc Methods. The Mayor, Aid. J. lOdwards, has liad commenced this week the work oi' creating netting fences round three rabbit infested patches on the Forbes common, which have been, die ssourcc oi' complaint, and apart from which Llie whole of the com | monage area ia practically, if not absolutely, free from the pest. The warrens are located on an area of barren sandy country to the south oi Mr. Gunn's slaughter yards about a mile and a hall! from town. At first the trustees of the common inclined to the view Lhat systema tic fumigating would meet require ments in eliminating the rabbits, bill a test of this method served to show that it. would bo to a great extent futile. This was owing to the fact that over the three patches of laud, each separated by about a hundred yards, the burrows mado by the rabbits were so numerous that iii many cases they ran into one another, forming underground tunnels, with a maze ...
A COOL CHANGE. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 13 January 1912
A COOL CHAXOiH. On Tuesday last the thermometer registration in Forbes reached 95.1'> degrees. Since then the maximum registration lias been 79, and the minimum 54 while the "lowest maxi mum"—that is the coolest day as shown by the highest reading of the thermometer— was 011 Thursday, when 78 degrees was recorded. Bui last Saturday was even better than that, for then the maximum reading was 77. The scriptural phrase "with out variableness neither shadow of turning," certainly cannot be applied to the weather in Forbes this summer and Forbes has not had any monopoly in the matter. The thermometer has only twice reached over 100 degrees—in November, I when readings of 102.3 and 10 were recorded. During December the maximum was 97 degrees, and it varied from that figure down to | low in the eighties.

Roth comedies abound in farcical situations of the most ludicrous or der, and the plots furnish the most ridiculous complications. The com pany is the ony ...
Short Cut to Millennium. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 13 January 1912
Short Cut to Millennium, j In the expression of his ultra weariness, the Victorian Premier, Mr. Murray, told some persistent pressmen the other day that he was "too tired" to give them any more information. But his intellectual genius managed to revive sufficient ly to enable him to get a brilliant suggestion in the interests of over worked journalists. There was a duplication, he pointed out, of infor mation given in one paper of what ■was to be seen in "the reptle con temporary." And he could not see the necessity for that double work. Would it not be advisable, he pro ceeded to ask, for the State to have one press organ i'or the whole of Victoria, and pension off the jour nalists who would be put out of work, but who are doing work that is absolutely unnecessary? To whiclx / we might say that many journalists would not bo . the ones to object to such a philanthropic scheme. But liow about the unneces sary politicians, who also frequent ly. speak of being overworked es pecially in...

SERGEANT MAJOR HOLSWICH'S WEDDING. The following is taken from the Mudgee "Western Post"—A quiet, but extremely pretty wedding took place at the Methodist Church, Mudgee, on Tuesday, December 26, 1911, when Vita Grace, only daugh- ter of Mr. and Mrs. E. Burwood, of "Dayton," Mudgee, was married to Staff-Sergeant-Major C. A. Hols- wich, the son of Mr. W. Hols- wich, also of Mudgee. The cere- mony was performed by Rev. J. B. Penman.

Cad8t Motes. (MY BUGIjAK.) Hurroo; Hurrah; I-Iooi-ay; Tho Parkes Senior Cadets Cricket Club have won a match at last, the For bes boys being tlie victims. Scores, first innings, Forbes 69, Parkes 105. The principal elements of success were Botting -IS, and Henry's G9, were Botting IS, and Henry's 35, and the bowling of Swendle, who promises to develop into an "ex press." The. corner is now turned, and the Parkes S..C.C.C. are hotfoot af ter (he Molong scalps. Molong boys liave beaten Parkes twice; hence the hunger for their heads. Some of i.lie Forbes lads were just a little sore after their defeat, the captain averring that Forbes could play Parkes and Molong combined, and give them a bad beating. Forbes certainly deserved to win, as every lad was a trier, and one in parti cular, young Sliervington, did work ■which would put 90 per cent, of our adult cricketers in the shade. I notice that a regrettable prac tice, that, of playing men who are many years too old for the senior cadets...

Mr. Beckett notes in his communication that al: hough the rainfall last year was 011 the whole more than for a number of years past, it was a poor one for ooth crops and grass. Everything looked well up till the end of September, but though fallowing and the use of fertilisers was carried out to a greater extent than hitherto, the want of sufficient rain in Se...

Hon. John Meagher's Pro posal. TO HONOR THE PENNY POSTAGE CHAMPION. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 17 January 1912
Hon. JoSin SVieagher's posal. TO HOXOK I'Hii PI3NNY POST AG li CHAMPION. Mr John Meagher, M.L.C., of Gathurst, in the course of a press interview a few days, ago, sugges ted that, the whole of the business people of the State should present Mr. I-Ionnikor Heaton with an ad dress and testimonial in recognition of his valuable services, in the cause of penny postage. "The business people of the Com monwealth," said Mr. Meagher, "are indebted to Mr. Heaton for his per sistent advocacy of penny postage, which, after unwearied energy, he succeeded in obtaining. This, too, without loss to the Empire, as the enormous increase in postal busi ness more than counterbalances tho reduction in postage. I have not calculated the saving to my firm, but I know it is considerable, llow much greater, then, must be tho saving to the firms in the metropo lis ? I think, therefore, that it would be a gracious act for the busi ness firms to present Mr. Heaton with an address aud testimonial in recognition...
The Forbes Times. WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 17, 1912 LORD DUDLEY ON AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 17 January 1912
The Forbes Times. WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 17, 1912 .LOUD DUDLEY OX AUSTRALIA. Two or three months ago much adierse comment was occasioned by cei tain remarks made in England by Lord Dudley immediately after liis retirement from tlie position oi Governor General of the Common wealth. The burden of his speech on that occasion was tiiat Australia was suffering; from an overplus ol professional politicians, and of course the principal objectors to liis strictures were the politicians whose tender spot was touched. Now the ex-Governor General has enlarged on the subject of Australia and its people and the impressions he formed during his residence here which extended over a couple of years. Before a distinguished gather ing at tlie Colonial Institute in Lon don last week, he read a paper on "Some Impressions of Australia." And the rather lengthy cable sum mary that has been, published here indicates that our critic was not so generally condemnatory as we woulc be led to expect from the indign...
