Shortage of Trucks A GENERAL COMPLAINT. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 3 February 1912

Shortage of Trucks A (iJONMiK.AL COM J'L.VINT. During this week complaint has been very general from a largo number of country centres as to the scarcity of railway trucks avail able for the conveyance of produce, and in several towns instructions have been issued to station masters that they are not to receive from consignors further lots of wheat chaff, etc, until the present stacks are got away to Sydney. The result in many cases is a general paralysis of traffic, and tho indig nant complaints arc numerous and omphalic. A report from Barmedman, for instance, is that tho Railway De part mom's handling of the wheat harvest this year lias been nothing short of a public disgrace. Right Unougli the season 110 effort what ever lias been made to get wheat away to the seaboard. Tho only trucks ever available to wheat-buy ors wore those that came in to the slaticm loaded with goods for tho stores, etc. Not one single Instance can be montioned of g, supply of trucks being sent hero to take...

Mr. Clement Wragge's Entertainments. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 3 February 1912

Mr. Clement Wragge's Entertainments. Practically a full house assembled in the Town Hall on Tuesday night, in response to the announcement of an illustrated lantern lecture by Air. Clement. Wragge , the well known Australian astronomer and weather expert. In the hands of many lecturers a subject such as that dealt with by Air. Wragge would to the lay mind be a "dry as—dust1' strictly instructional and largely uninteresting discourse. But the entertainment given by Mr Wragge could truly bo classed as an evening spent not without profit, and also with a large measure of enjojment. He dealt with the wonders and majesty of the skies aiul the numerous constellations and planets that comprise the heavens in a fashion that was popular and at tractive, in tliat the story was racy, at times revealing a capacity on the part of the lecturer for fine de ceptive word pictures and impass ioned appeal, and at the same time containing sufficient of scientific fact to demonstrate a full knowledge of...

New South Wales and Queensland. PROPOSED NEW RAIL WAY CONNECTION. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 3 February 1912

New South Wales and I Queensland. ; PROPOSED NEW RAIL WAY CON NECTION. A proposal for a new railway connec tion between this State and Queensland was discussed Liy the Minister for Works (Mr. Griffith) and the Premier of the Northern State (Mr. Denham) in Sydney early in the week. The latter also saw Mr. iJ'Gowen, and talked over several border matters, including the question of connecting the Tweed Heads railway, on the Queensland side, with the New South Wales line ending at Murvvillumbah. " The offer of the Queensland Premier," said Mr. Griffith after the interview, " prac tically amounts to an undertaking that if the Government of this State will extend the North Coast railway to thu Queens land border, the Queensland Government will extend its railway to our border in such a position as to meet an extension of our western system from Bourke." Mr. Griffith expressed himself as highly appreciative of both projects, and regards the second as very generous in view of the fact that ...

I know a place, my friend, where I am given a hot Joint one day; renew Its acquaintance in a state of frigidity on tile next; try with Its mangled remains in the form of a hash on the third; flirt with It among maoaroni and tomato sauco 011 the fourth; and, probably, on tho fifth, detect it lurking yet again in tho recesses of a rissole."

A traveller in Alaska brings homo this ex perience of liiw Klondike wanderings. The teller of this story passed a long, cold winter at Capo Nome. Ho and his companions had, for a year or more, let their hearda grow, as a protection for their chests and throats. One night, when all wero asleep, the man in question wasf awakened by a light patting on his face. Tlio cold was in tense, and, not caring to move unless it was necessary, ho lay still. Again the light touches on Ills cheek. He put up his hand, and his fingers closed on a tiny mouse tangled in the meshes of his beard. A companion, roused by tho involuntary exclamation, lighted a candle and Inves tigated. The mouse had selected the beard as a warm and eligible site for a residence. It had burrowed out a nice round nest, and when caught was engaged In dropping beans, purloined from the scanty ...

CANADA THROUGH AUSTRALIAN SPECTACLES THE OTHER SIDE OF THE SHIELD CHAPTER XIV. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 3 February 1912

THROUGH AUSTRALIAN :: :: :: SPECTACLES :: :: :: THE OTHER SIDE OF THE SHIELD By ROBERT McMILLAN CHAPTER XIV. A man in the east of Canada ordered some oysters. As the waiter set them down, the man said, "They don't look very large." "They do look a bit small," replied the waiter. The man tasted one and said. "Waiter, they are not very fresh." "Then," said the waiter, "ain't it lucky they arc so small." Yes, there arc always different ways of looking at things, and I have come to the conclusion that no point of view is the absolutely correct one. I've seen this country under several different aspects and each one gives you a different impression. As a young man, I saw it as a tramp-harvester, beating my way on the trains, travelling by night on empty freight cars, and stopping over at places during the day, to look for work, or tucker. Later on. 1 knew it as a prcacher and lecturer, and sometimes I knew it as a city worker, or a sailor, so that I've seen it under different aspects, an...
