METHODIST CONCERT. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 8 December 1911
METHODIST CONCERT. THE MOON'S SILV'RY LIGHT." A novel and most successful undertaking was the moonlight concert held at&lt; "Fitzroy,"'-Parlies Road, the residence of Mr and Mrs .T. Donagliey, on Wednesday night. The night was the most charming imaginable, and in this respect the promoters were signally fortunate,, for the clerk of the weather lias' been in such a. particularly sour mood of late that the, chances seemed quite against catching him in a good humour. As it was, tlie beautiful enticing evening drew a splendid attendance, many of whom made a pleasant walk of it; while a string- of vehicles and cycles helped to. make an animated thoroughfare of the Ptirlces Road for the nonce. ' •' Mr and Mrs Donagliey had gone to immense pains to make a complete success of the function, arid the result must have been at least in some mfeasure their reward, for thete can be no doubt.about the enjoyment of the attendance and the ..financial outcome. There is probably no more ideall...

NEW AOSSTffiENT RATES. THE SHEEP AND THE GOATS. With Bunny Eliminated. The Town .Common, which is a little under 4000 acres in area, presents, in drought time, an uninviting aspect. Most town commons are the- same, because they' are usually regarded as-legitimate fields; for grass pirates/. : There are at,-present 800 sheep and 300 - goats on -the:,F.orbes. common, and this is a far greater number--of' these graminivora than the common will carry, if horses and cattle are to ha,ve a;cut-in. More- j xover, horses and cattle dislike graz- ; ing on sheep country^—goats will eat anything; and in dry places they and' the bill-poster are tit enmity, the love of the goat for bill-paste overcoming any conscientious scruples lie may have on the obliteration of the advertisement. The goat, if not too ( numerous and odorous, is, not so ob-. jectionable to the horse, as the sheep, ? and if the ranger could master the; Biblical method of sending the goats', to the right, and the sheep to the lef...

The passage of six thousand sheep through the town common is an ordinary event, but when it is accompanied by a mortality of 104 in a. few hours, it.calls for comment, and Mr T.

No Wires DEPLORABLE TELEGRAPHIC MUDDLE. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 12 December 1911
No Wires DEPLORABLE TELEGRAPHIC MUDDLE. F.or three successive issues of "The Forbes Advocate" we have been unable to get a word of telegraphic information through for publication. Each day of issue our Sydney telegraphic agents lodge press wires for us at 9 a.m.; but never a word cornea through. The' simple explanation is that the whole service is in a condition of hopeless congestion and disgraceful muddle. Up till 11.45 a.m. to-day the local officials—who are a good lot of fellows, and doing their level best against heart-breaking odds—were receiving wires lodged for dispatch yesterday in Sydney.' There will, therefore, be nothing through till later in the day. We must apologise to our readers for the repeated. omission of telegraphic" information from our columns, but they will see from the foregoing that it is not our fault. We are to-day putting in another strong protest to the authorities.
