WELL-ORGANISED SHOOT. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 5 January 1912
WELL-ORGANISED SHOOT, Mr Lou Laneyrle, of the Club House Hotel, Eugowra, laid himself out as organiser of the pigeon shoot last Wednesday week, to make tlie game both comfortable and attractive, and the sport proved so good that after blazing away all day on Wednesday, a fresh start was made on Thursday, and the shooters did not quit till noon. .Details were given last issue, but some remarkably good shooting on the second day is worthy of notice, when four men left in a sweep shot 32 birds in succession with the first barrel. Altogether, 18 shooters faced the traps, and a temporary shed provided the necessary grateful shade. Out of 600 pigeons and 300 sparrows provided, there were 60 pigeons left. The pigeons were obtained from Parkes, Condobolin, Cudal, Canowindra, and Forbes, and were a line lot, as with a strong breeze, in their favor they asked the shooters some awkward questions.

WESTERN 01STRB6T MS. PARS CRIBBED FROM OUR EXCHANGES. TEMORA. Mr A. Hunt's residence, a mile from the town, .was destroyed by fire on Monday night. The furniture was insured for £50 in the Alliance Company. It is not known if the building was insured. The origin of the fire is unknown. j A farmer in this district has made an estimate of'the value of the ma^ chinery in use in; the province this season. He says tha,t:.in the seven districts there are about 400 machines working, and the ■ vaiue—new and second-hand'—is ;£ 18,400. The horses employed in stripping and carting £17,000, the bullocks £11,000. If, these figures are correct, they afford a good idea of the advance that has taken place in the province during the last five years. And yet, this great plateau is only.on" the fringe of development. 1.

TROTTING AT EUGOWRA. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 5 January 1912
TROTTING AT EUGOWRA. Trotting at Forbes seems to be dead, but Eugowra, under the impetus of Mr Lou Laneyrie, is moving towards the formation "of ,a live club. The settling up in connection with the Boxing Day races took place at the Club House Hotel on Tuesday night, and formed the occasion for a fruitful discussion on trotting. There were about fifty sports present, and Mr Robert Patterson, of Forbes,! in the .course of a half-hour addrpss on trotting generally, gave some useful information. The discussion mainly centred round the advisability of forming a local trotting club, or of temporising by having a trotting double in the annual race programme, the latter being decided upon. The amount of £ 17 was collected in ihe rbom for this double, and the Eu-. gowra Jockey Club promised to make it up to, .£ 25. Should this be a.suc\x=req-\ cess, a trotting club will be formed later on, and a half-mile track laid out on the racecourse. At the next meeting, thef>e will be a saddling pa...
