OUR LADIES' LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 22 December 1911

OUR LADIES' LETTER. (By Reseda). A Merry Xmas to all my readers, and, as Tiny Tim observed when Old Scruge turned into a good old man, "God bless us every one!" Has Father Xmas, or Santa Claus, practically passed away from Australia? It would seem so when tiny folks of G and 7 tell you they do not believe in Santa Claus; there is none. What a pity this pretty deception, if I might so term it, is passing away! Some teachers say children should not be told untruths; it is wrong to teach them there is a Father Xmas, for when they find out that their parents place the presents in their stockings, they awake to the fact that they have been lied to. This sounds all very well, but I do not think the world was worse off in years gone by when tiny folk looked forward to Santa Claus' visit in all faith, than I it is now. For, after all, what more real existence can Santa Claus have than in the person of father or mother. In France, boys and girls of 12 oils years place their shoes in the fire...

CRICKET. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 22 December 1911

CRICKET. I am satisfied that the majority of the farmers on the Lachlan are sports, and take a great interest in ' all branches. I met one man, who was disappointed because Speaker Willis was not playing in the test match, as ho considered he was the best "thrower-out" in Australia at the present time. Another man said that tho initials of the Englishmen puzzled him, and he wondered why Worn Bardsley and Warern Trumper didn't add three or four letters to their name, just to keep company with J. W. H. T. Douglas. Tho same man said that there were just as good fields around Forbes as there were in the Australian Eleven. I think he meant fields of wheat though.

CHRISTMAS HOLIDAYS AND XMAS DINNER. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 22 December 1911

CHRISTMAS HOLIDAYS AND XMAS DINNER. Many of tlie farmers and their wives and families are arranging to go for a trip to the city, seaside, etc., directly the Xmas dinner is over, and Xmas conversation takes a wide range. One housewife to whom I happened to remark, over my third cup of tea, that some of the old customs are dying out, answered me thusly: "Yes, a good job too. Fancy eating roast beef and plum pudding this weather." I asked her what she would suggest, and her menu for Xmas dinner was something like the following:—Fish and fowl, as many vegetables as you can get, jellies, ices, and 16 different cool drinks." The good woman continued, "Australia is leading the world in industrial legislation, and in many other things, but in eating and dress she is not advancing. We ought to dress to suit the climate, but no, we are slaves to fashion, and the same applies to our Xmas dinners, banquets, etc." After telling my hostess that I would mention the matter to my wife, I thanked he...

LAND FOR OUR FARMERS' SONS. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 22 December 1911

LAND FOR OUR FARMERS' SONS. "Look here, Mr Advocate," said a farmer with a large family, whom I asked what he thought of share farming, "farming on the shares is all right for the landlord, and in a good season the share man will do well too, and take a year like this, and -you will find that the share man, in many instances, will not make wages. If I had 10,000 acres, I wouldn't put it under sheep, I'd let it out on the shares every time." "But," I answered, "I know share farmers that' have done well at It,' and now own their bit of land." "Certainly you do." said , he, "and I know landlord:? wkmnv how they were, going to i>'ay "tlieir in\x=req-\ terest,- until the share farmer came along, andV pulled them'out of- the mire.— Look here, young man," the farmer with the .large family continued, 'Australia would be better off if she iiaa all her share farmers on their own bit of land. Why, every land ballot sees scores of applicants, and land hunger is just as bad now as ever. Talk ...

CANOWINDRA. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 22 December 1911

CANOWINDRA. The many friends of Mr Pat O'Neill, of the Woodstock-road, who underwent an operation in Sydney last week, will be pleased to learn that he is making good progress towards recovery. The Railway Commisisoners have refused the request of the local Progress Association to run a daily train during the wheat season. A train usually runs every day during the wheat season,' but as it is not scheduled to a time table, it is of no use to the travelling public. Suppliers at the local butter factory will be paid lid net per lb of butter for the month of November. We learn, upon inquiry, that the factory is making a profit over working expenses. The manager desires us to remind shareholders of the necessity of prompt payment of all calls due on shares. Please note this. Farmers nave been making good progress with harvesting operations. Pair yields are being obtained. . A start will shortly be made with the improvements to the streets or our town. Farmers along the Eugowra Road are a...

Moralist: "Ah, kind friend, it is deeds, not words, that count." Friend: "Oh, I don't know! Did you ever send a.telegram?"

TBne Great S«ccess7attaiira our Tailoring C apartment is the perfect fit, cut and style, and the great wearing capacity of suits turned out by Leyne and Co. Value. Webster tells us is the " amount obtainable for a thing," and when that thing happens to be your hard cash, it behoves you to procure the best value possible. If Webster had been a slangy Australian he may have said that the act of obtaining; value was the act of " getting a run for your money." Everybody likes to get their money's worth when they buy a thing. We know of nothing more annoying than to buy an article and to find out afterwards that we have paid too much for it. Leyne & Co.'s Solid Values hrve become a household word throughout the Forbes | district-.

POISONING RABBITS. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 22 December 1911

POISONING RABBITS. At the P.P. Board meeting on Monday, the Inspectors' reports of the prevalence of noxious animals were read. For the moat part, good work was shown to have been done, but in some cases the inspectors reported that although a large amount of poison was being laid, no appreciable decrease was noticed in the pest. The Board decided that such means in future would be deemed unsatisfactory (if resultless), and a prosecution would lilcely follow.

EXPEDITIOUS WORK. For expeditious work under the direction of Mr J. H. Bates that of Mr Ti Twist.and staff in excavating the grave in St. Lawrence's Church deserves commendation. : It was only on Monday afternoon that instructions were available, and, not only had the funeral arrangements to be then carried out, but the grave had to be dug, and the soil removed under exceptionally awkward conditions. The vault was bricked, cemented, and constructed so that it could be hermetically sealed after the interment, but so rapidly and efficiently was the work done, that no inconvenience was experienced by the vast number of mourners who attended masses on Tuesday morning. It has not yet ueen decided whether a marble slab or a "brass" will bp imposed over the

The Forbes Advocate, FRIDAY, DECEMBER 22, 1911. XMAS. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 22 December 1911

j I - I Jotte Jp&ocate, FRIDAY, DECEMBER 22, 1911. XMAS. . Xmas and its wealth of memories is almost with us again. Once more has the pendulum of time brought us to that season of the year for ever associated with peace, goodwill, and charity. The Lowly Nazarene's "Peace on earth; goodwill to all men" comes floating down the centuries with -a sweetness that time but adds to. As the world grows older, the spirit of commercialism takes firmer and firmer root, but once in every twelve months at least humanity asserts itself, and is master of the situation. The pettiness, the meanness, the trials, the troubles, the strife, the struggling, the tears, and the sighings, that in many cases, perhaps, have had more than their fair share of prominence for twelve months, are happily thrust aside for a few days. The cancer may remain, but a smiling face securely hides it. The poor and struggling are given a breathing space wherein to remember that they are flesh and blood, of their more ...
