Vit nell), a number of parents and friends were present. Mr J. T. Noble, before presenting the prizes, embraced the opportunity of thanking Mr Vitnell for his kind invitation, which permitted of his being present. As a parent, and one well represesnted at the school, he was deeply grateful to Mr Vitnell for his untiring devotion to duty. He (Mr Vitnell) was laboring under difficulties of an exceptionally hard nature. He was without assistance, and had on the rolls some fifty odd children, of ages varying from 6 to 18 years. No teacher could possibly do justice to children under such circumstances, and the parents (who alone are responsible), were not safeguarding the interests of either children or teacher in allowing such-a state of affairs to continue.

MR A. B. TRIGGS' OPINION OF FORBES. Mr A. B. Triggs, of Yass, was in Forbes this week, having a look round his Forbes district properties. Mr Triggs has large interests in this district, viz., Wongajong, Uah, Carrawobitty, Bogandillon, and Traversdale &nbsp; properties. He considers Forbes &nbsp; to be absolutely one of the best districts in New South Wales, an opinion that he backed up recently by purchasing (through Messrs E. Weaver and Co,) Uah estate, and portion of Bundaburra. Mr Triggs finds his Forbes properties most convenient to work in with his large number of back country stations in the Condobolin and Hillston districts. His action &nbsp; in so largely increasing his interests here is one of the best, compliments that could be paid to the &nbsp; Forbes district, for Mr Triggs is now not only one of the biggest property holders in the State, but is universally admitted to be almost without equal as a shrewd judge of values, and a genius of ...

Brook, when that old plant was very conspicuous, for whilst the rest of the town was deprived of its gas supply, the Hotel Victoria was a blaze of light. O.O. (Old Orkney Scotch whisky), the popular whisky. Mine's O.O.* The danger of the' objectionable and unnecessary practice of kissing the Bible in courts was illustrated by an incident in the Wellington Court the other day. A witness who had just taken the oath stated in his evidence that he was suffering from consumption of the throat, a pleasing piece of information for those who probably kissed the same book afterwards. Verdicts for plaintiffs, with costs, were given in ...
