MOKU PAHTICULARS WANTED. One oi! the duties of tlie Sydney Iiarbour Trust is to keep a record of the imports into Sydney from all sources—oversea, other States, and other ports in the State. Also, records are kept at the Customs of the imports from oversea, . The Harbour Trust keeps records of the value of imports from the other Scutes, but there are not any records kept of the value of the goods received from our own State ports, though that would appear to bo of greater interest and worth than arc the bare particulars of tonnage.

CANADA THROUGH AUSTRALIAN:::::: SPECTACLES:::::: CANADIAN IMMIGRATION CHAPTER XIII. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 27 January 1912
(H A M A $ THROUGH AUSTRALIAN LAimli'A :: :: :: SPECTACLES :: :: :: CANADIAN IMMIGRATION By ROBERT McMILLAN CHAPTER XIII. The worship of the ancient is one of the strongest, deepest and most enduring traits in human nature. "The Good Old Times" is a phrase to conjure with, in spite of the fact that tiie world never before saw such widespread good times as we are having now, and, in spite of the fact also, that as knowledge and intelligence spreads, tlic world grows ever better. In England you come across bits of the old life carefully preserved, a bit of an old wall, a crumbling tower, a dry well, a tottering cottage, a relic of some sort preserved as care fully as if it was of value. In Canada nothing is very old, comparatively speaking, that is, nothing that is human. We call 1492 the limit when Columbus sailed to the .Westward in search of the way to India, but the Vikings were, here long before that, only we have no traces of them, for they built no great edifices, and left no e...

FOR SICK AND POOR. The Flower Distribution. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 27 January 1912
FOB SICK AND POOR. Tlie rlowev Distribution. It was a very happy thought that gavo birth to the movement which hears this name. Spring-time is flower-time. Of the many beautiful voices of Spring, the flow ers ;are. among the sweetest. All beauty; has a divine message, and the beauty of the flowers is one of Its tenderest inter pretations. , W? .all love the • flowers. It would be a. little difllcult, though, to ac curately analyse our feelings. It is more than admiration for their beauty. They seem to touch a mysterious delicate sense within us. Their very tenderness appeals to us. We don't feel the same towards the flnest artificial flowers, and even the "everlastings" aitect us differently. We may admire them, but we take the dell catc-petalled flowers to our heart. Spring time is-flower-tlme—at least in the coun try and suburbs It'is. But In the narrow streets of the city are homes, hundreds of them, huddled as close as can be, where a flower is very seldom seen. Thore in no room...
The Forbes Times. SATURDAY, JANUARY 27, 1912. KEEPING THE TOWN CLEAN. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 27 January 1912
The Forbes Times. SATURDAY, JANUARY 27, 1912. KEEPl.V; THIS TOWX UIJSAJV. At l'irst siglit it seemed that at tlie Police Court on Tuesday the Police magistrate was. dealing un iieceseviily harshly with those of fenders against the municipal ordi nance requiring that stable accom modation should be kept clean and free from accumulations of manure, and that approved receptacles shoulrl be provided to enable refuse and rubbish to be disposed of sat isfactory. But while there will be a generous amount of sympathy ex tended to those hotellceepers and others who were called upon to pay lines of .£3 and substantial costs, for not having observed a law the requirements of 'which had not previously, so far at any rate as is publicly manifest, been brought immediattely under their notice, there is nevertheless much justification for the. walceful atti tude assumed by tlie police and the municipal inspector in the matter. And ilie magistrate was well with in his province in making it clear tha...

Wo ourselves, however, were somowhat ludicrously robbed of this ro mantic foretaste.

SANDOW IN PLASTER OF PARIS. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 27 January 1912
SANDOW IN PLASTER OF PARIS. Iii the British Museum is :i statue of Sandow, which, instead of being modelled by a sculptor in the ordinary way, has boon actually cast from the living figure. An articlc in the "Strand Magazine" gives a full and interesting description of how this remarkable operation was car ried out. Professor Ray Lankcster's idea 111 hav ing the cast made was to preserve for future generations a perfect type of this period. ' i ~-3g| The cast is practically unique of its kind; probably no such cast has even been attempted, not to say completed. Of course casts of hands and feet and faces aro common enough, and now and again a cast of the wholo of a human body in a recumbent, relaxed position has been taken; but this cast is entirely different, being no less than of the completo figure slantlinjr, and with the musclos in a tense condition. 'jj| The process of obtaining the moulds from the figure was a long and tedious one—indeed from first to last it occupied over a ...

Events so startling, and following in such rapid succession, in China, almost invariably heralding victory to fcho Rebel arms, so fiercely opposed to the Manclni Dynasty, have for weeks past afforded Australians subject-matter for deepost consideration.

Pars About People. Heeently Mr. Tliomas Hardy, tlio well-nown English novelist, con fessed to a friend, who marvelled at his wonderful knowledge of tbo English country girl, that when ho was a young man he used to writ© love-lettors for tho village girts to their soldier .sweethearts in India. "That, naturally," said Mr. Hardy,' "gave- me a. good insight into their nature and characteristics." Unlike tho majority of writers, Mr Hardy did not begin his literary labouru until fairly late' in life. He was whe-n hi;; first successful book, "Under the Greenwood Tree," was published.
