TALK O' THE TOWN. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Riverina Echo — 20 June 1913
TALK 0' THE TOWN. (By "Honey Bcc.") The want of another Justice of the Peace or two for Tocumwal is badly felt even, at the present time, and doubtless will be so in a greater degree as time goes on and the population increases. A batch was recently gazetted, but no one from down this way was t'.mong the list. Since Harry Peters is going for a city con stituency at next elections he docs not trouble much about To cumwal—if ever lie did. This re minds me of a conversation I overheard once in a town not so far from this ccntre. Jinks met Dinks and said ; "I see you arc not in the new batch of magistrates." "No," replied Binks, "I wasn't bread for such a roll, and that's why they left me out of the batch!" That further reminds me of a paragraph I read the other day in a London Trade Journal. The query-was raised as to what was "an ideal loaf?" In my. humble opinion an ideal loaf is to get £ f2 a week for being a member of Parliament. Can any local bak ers supply me with a better defini...

Dear Sir,—The paragraph which appeared in your pa.ner a couple of weeks ago relating to our "Datcholo;nm" has already had the effect of making the gentler sex of Toke take an active part by paying us a visit.
