How it was Done. [Newspaper Article] — Molong Argus — 1 August 1902
How it wai l-one. The story of cattle being stolen from Scone and afterwards sold at Muswell brook is similar to a case out Moree way only it was not quite so daring. On that occasion a selector bad tbe privilege of going on a run and select ing cows for milking. Generally be took white ones, but in no time they became red and white, their brands fnlfAri. arid nltimatelv a town butcher got hold of tbem. The squatter^ was a most trusting, amiable fellow, and he never could understand why, at any time he went to tbe selector's, there was always one white wild cow to rope ! He found it out once, but by that time the selector had married bis only daughter, and anything in the shape of reprisals then would have brought disgrace on bis own. So be took his son-in-law into partners, by way of security. I'm not sure that it had effect, however ; but I suppose it bad, because tbe son-in-law ultimately secured tbe station. It was a way tbey had in those days.

' 1 ; Herbage and grass began to7 shoot splendidly, but the severe frosts to which we have oeen subjected lately has seri ously checked its growth. The wheat oops, although they appear to have come up very well, do not seem to progress, but with the approach of warmer days we nave oener nopes. Mr. John Townsend has erected an enclosure for the purpose of yarding, by drives, some of the noxious animals with which this locality is infeBted. So far Mr. Townsend has been most successful in the attempt, many various kinds of rodents being destroyed therein. I hear much adverse comment passed on the new timber regulations, and its effects will be severely felt by a good many,bush workers.
Our Federal Member. [Newspaper Article] — Molong Argus — 1 August 1902
Our Federal Member. — o — ' Quiz,' in the Forbes Gazette, writes : — Tbe elect of Canoblas has been doing some solid good work at the Farmers' Conference in Sydney, and has been instrumental in putting a good many of his fellow delegates on tbe right track for getting what the men on the land really need to help to make them prosperous. Such men are a valuable addition to affairs of this kind and having had practioal experience ' on the land ' as well as in our legislative halls, are a host in themselves, as tbey know the ropes in both spheres. In addition ' Tom ' has a lot of sound sense about him which parliamentary associations has Bignally failed to corrupt, which is no mean thing. Unless 1 am very muoh mistaken the time will come when ' Our Boy ' will be a Minister of the Crown, thereby honoring this dhtriot and those who helped in his entry into political life.

Fortune's Wheel. A Lucky Speculation. [Newspaper Article] — Molong Argus — 1 August 1902
Fortune's Wheel. —o ? A Lucky Speculation. A bemabkable piece of luck, illustrat ing the vagaries of fortune when happy chance is not anticipated, attended the family of a well-known member of the State Parliament in connection with one of ' Tattersall's ' consultations on the Grand National race meeting. The legislator referred to is Mr. W. W. Davis, member for Bourke, who,' besides floing his duty to otftte as a law-mtypqr, pas ; dis charged $0 the utmost tbe obligations of a colonist of a cpuntry starving for population by rearing a family of 24, sons and daughters of whom any man might well be proud. The other day it was the birthday of one' of the youngest, which of course is not remarkable, for birthdays are pretty frequent in a household of such j patriarchal dimensions; and a thought- j ful uncle delighted the child by pre senting; him with a rocking horse.
