1912, LEAP YEAR. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 8 January 1912
1912, LEAP YEAR. Now, girls! This year you have the ball at your feet, and If you don't have a good time and make the best of it, it will be your own fault. Leap year only conies every fourth year, and some of you who have been in the throes of expectation every night your best boy comes to see you, awaiting him to ask you to share his little hut with him, which he has not done up to the present,can now exer cise your legal authority, and ask him if he means business. The lacka daisical courtship, which Is only too prevalent in Orange, and many other country towns, is responsible in a largo degree for the clammoring of immigrants. Long courtships are generally put down to the backward ness of the man, and in nine cases out of 10 it is right. Why, we know a man in Orange who had been keeping company with one girl for nearly 20 years, and had never asked her to marry him, and the result was that the other fellow happened along, ,and Sub Rosa wooed and won her in less than six months. ...

DETERMINED FIGHT BY PRISONER. A man named William Wheeler, who is identical with the fellow who was concerned in the shooting affray at Millthorpe some time ago, created considerable disturbance in Mudgee last Tuesday, and was arraigned on three charges of drunk, indecent language, and assaulting the police. Wheeler, when arrested, threatened to make short work of the arresting constables. The prisoner fought and made use of fearful language, and drew a razor from his pocket and en deavored to use it. He was subse quently landed in the lockup, where he tried to beat his head against the walls of the cell and tear up his blankets, and break up things gener ally, He was then strapped to the iloor, and bolstered up with pads. Constable Edwards said that Wheeler had been threatening the life of a woman named Sullivan, whom he had been following about for five years. The prisoner was sentenced to two months' imprisonment in Bathurst Gaol.
THE LATE W. B. BERNASCONI. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 8 January 1912
THE LATE W. B. BERNASCONI. The funeral of the late lamented W. B. Bernasconi, took place on Satur- day afternoon, and, notwithstanding the brief notice, was very largely at- tended. The cortege left the deceas- ed's late residence, Lord-street, for the R.C. Church, where a short ser- vice was conducted by the Rev. Fath- er Ryan, and as the coffin was being removed from the church to the hearse, the organist, Mr. W. Leh- &nbsp; mann, played the "Dead March in Saul." Preceding the hearse marched the members of the 3rd A.I. Regi- ment in uniform, followed by the employees of Messrs. Dalton Broth- ers, Limited, and following the hearse were members of the Orange Bowling Club, representatives of the Orange &nbsp; and East Orange Councils, Liet. Beck, and Sergeant Drescher, and a large number of vehicles and horsemen, the whole presenting a touching tri- bute to the esteem and respect in which our departed townsman was held.

GILGANDRA. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 9 January 1912
GILGANDRA. William Turner, a lad 11 years of age, sou of the caretaker at Bumun gerie railway station, met with a very severe accident last week. During his mother's absence he was left in the charge of a friend at the latter's place, but during the day returned home and commenced playing with a gun cartridge, which exploded in his face,inflicting terrible injuries.. He was brought into Gilgandra, but Dr. Keith ordered his removal to Sydney the same afternoon. It is feared his sight is permanently destroyed. Mr. Mat McGill, an old resident of Box Ridge, near Gulargamboue, died last week from an attack of enterlts. He was buried at Gulargambone. A Shire Engineer has had a gang of men at work on the streets for the last few weeks, but, strange to relate, they have mostly been engaged on altogether unnecessary work, while the main streets are getting into a deplorable condition from the heavy wheat traffic. For instance, he has had them cutting down about 150 yards of footpath in a bac...
DUBBO. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 9 January 1912
DUBBO. The many friends of Senior-Con stable Meagher will regret to learn that he is slightly indisposed. In all probability the Senior will be about again in a few days. Many people considered farmers were exaggerative in their assertion that the heavy rains early in Decem ber had decreased the weight of wheat by three or four pounds to the bushel. In some instances we know of the reduction in weight being even more than this. We saw a sample of wheat we'ghed by Mr, Joseph Field the other day. It turned the scales at 651bs, while samples from the same paddock which was harvested after the rain, weighed little over 601bs. per bushel. There is no doubt the wheat growers were heavy losers by the summer rains. An ■ accident, occasioning painful injuries to a little boy named Hob den, aged about ten years, happened last Tuesday. The lad was accom panying Mr. Bruce, a driver in the employ of Mr. Gartrell, baker, on his rounds. In the vicinity of the rail ! way station one of the wheels o...
TRANGIE. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 9 January 1912
TRANGIE. Tliu festive season has passed once more. The new year was ushered in quietly here, the larrikin element, which is very much In evidence some times, was absent, and except for a few jolly songs after midnight on .Sunday, the new year was welcomed much as ordinary days would be. The wheat is just about harvested here abouts, and the teamsters are having a busy time getting it to the railway. The yards since Monday have been full of teams loaded with wheat. Trucks are not too plentiful, and a large quantity is being stacked In the yards. Several townsmen put in their holi days at the Macquarie trying to se cure a few of the many cod that at times are kind enough to be tempt ed to take the'cunningly baited hooks, but the finny ones were not taking any just then, so our disciples -of Isaac Walton returned with empty creel. Good progress is "being made with the. new Commercial Bank, and the alteration and additions to the Pub lic School, the contractors for the re spective works...

CRICKET. N.S.W. v. SOUTH AUSTRALIA. ADELAIDE, Monday. The above match was continued to day in very hot weather, the ther mometer at 3 o'clock in the afternoon standing at 97 degrees.

BOOMING AUSTRALIA. A MYSTERIOUS "ADVERTISEMENT. . Some time ago a full page advertise ment appeared in the London "Daily Mail," and other English and Amer ican papers, beginning in big, black letters, "Wanted, 20,000,000 people . for sunny Australia, where the sun shines 325 days out of the year." It described Australia in glowing terms such as a "land with a greater sphere of opportunities in every walk of life' than any oilier country on the face . of the globe," and "the Commonwealth is an ideal Government of the people, by the people, for the people."

FROM EVERY POINT OF VIEW THE SALEYARDS. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 9 January 1912
FROM EVERY POINT OF VIEW THE SALEYABDS. (By J. L. Crouch.) I was present at the Orange Sale yards ■ on Thursday last with three other residents of the Condo'oolin district, and experienced much pleas ure in seeing Mr. H. Wheatley open his campaign as a salesman in these well-known yards, and we wish him every success in his venture to com pete with such well-known firms as Leeds and Co., Bedford, Taylor, and others. What has struck me, as well as every other grazier from our dis trict, is the very much out-of-data yards and niggardly management and appointments all round at these yards This market is well known to be the most popular and best attended out of Sydney, thanks to the energy and enterprise of the old selling Arms, and we of the Condobolin district, who have hitherto done business at the Orange stock saleyards, have decided to sell in Sydney in preference. In Sydney, Goulburn, and even in dc funct Batliurst, the saleyards are out of town, and in consequence the own ers, s...

OUR OPPORTUNITIES. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 9 January 1912
OUR OPPORTUNITIES. (By Fair Play.) In to-day's "Leader" "Excelsior' quotes returns from Orange. In re ply I need only say that my letter on ly , dealt with "produce forwarded from Millthorpe," and I relied on rail way returns published in "The Lead er" and "Millthorpe Mail" about three months ago, in which Millthorpe eas ily beat' Orange. But the question is: IVhere .shall the new experimental farm be plac ed? And seeing that we have a lead ing member of the Ministry repre senting this electorate, and Orange has a most bitter opponent, I don't think there is the least doubt of the issue. Of course "Excelsior" will say- this is wrong, but-he must re member that even Ministers of the Crown are human—very hnman, and like we ordinary mortals have a lot of the old Adam left in th'eni, and there fore will be more than likely to give any. benefit to. their own supporters. '"Excelsior," if he lives up to his mot to, would, I presume, view the matter from an Excelsiorian ■ standpoint, and pr...
