OUR LADIES' LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 5 January 1912
(By Reseda). "The wave is breaking on the shore— The echo fading from the chime— Again the shadow moveth o'er The dial-plate of time." Another year has passed, and the infant 1912 receives a crown of prosperity from ; its predecessor. It might almost be said that the old year died of a too great burden of success. Its pulse beat fast, and the summer sun beat its hottest rays upon our earth, and bush fires formed its funeral pyre.; i The infant year is wrapped in golden swaddling clothes with a future, to all appearance", great and beautiful. Time alone can tell what is in store, yet we have faith and hope. Faith that it will have every blessing, and hope that our belief be re alised. 1912 is a leap year. This is the girl's holiday year. It is only in leap year that girls have the prerogative of choosing their; husbands themselves. The lady must needs wait till she's "axed," except in leap year, when she, if she wishes, does the asking, and if she is rejected, the payment of rejectio...

PASTURES PROTECTION ROARD. INSPECTOR'S REPORT FOR 1911. An Interesting- Summary. By the courtesy of the Forbes'' P.P. Board officials, we- are enabled to publish the following report by Mr W. G. Dowling, Inspector of Stock:— The Season.—The year was good as regards rainfall at both ends, but very bad in the middle and towards the end of autumn, and the whole of the winter was in some respects drier than 1902. Stock Traffic.—-The lambing was normal, but owing to the season the lambs did not fatten and grow as they did in 1910. Although there was a greater number of lambs sent away in 1911 as freezers, they were not in as prime condition, uor as "sappy," showing that the milk supply was scanty. Prices ruled throughout on a paying basis, and the rejects will sell as early lambs in the current year. The stock trade was brisk, and to give an idea'of how larer>' arid important the-stock traffic is, I have again carefully recorded all movements, and from field inspections, permits, and ...

A spirit of orderliness pervaded the whole proceedings, and the merriment continued until the wee sma' hours, when "that tired feeling," getting the upper hand, the members quietly wended their way homeward.
