The Markets. SYDNEY WOOL SALES. I Dalgety & Co.

Comparatively little change has taken place in the selling conditions as I compared with those in force at the first 1 two week's sale in the New Year, the de 1 mand for all descriptions still being gene ral, competition brisk, and prices fully ' maintained on the basis established at the I opening sales in the second series.

THE JAPS IN HAWAII. AUSTRALIA'S CONCERN IN THEM. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 10 February 1912
AUSTRALIA'S CONCERN IN THEM. (By W. E. Vincent.) A eablo published a day or two ago anont the above was, perhaps, idly perused by 'thousands of Australians and received but a passing thought. Yet to us living in a "fool's paradise," in tho grandeur of this South Sea heri tage of ours, it warrants something more than ileeting interest. Tho bul letin' in question declared that tho United States has a little Japanese war scare of their own just now. Major General Carter, Cliiof of Staff of tho United States Army, declares that 3U, 000 trained Japanese soldiers have been smuggled into Hawaii since the RUsso Japanese War, and the United States Government realising the danger, haa taken steps to send 13,000 troops to tho island. During a recent visit to tho Hawaiin Islands tliero were many evi dences, to my mind, that this great key 01 the Pacific, would be responsible for something more than a "national ■growl" long before many seasons nad come.

SHAKESPEARE. I dream to-day of you, 'William, I dream to-day of you; 'Tis sad to think you uever gavo Tho Press an interview, And so it is denied to us To know, beyond all hope, What was your favourite soap, William, Your favourite brand o£ soap. Wo should so love to hear William, So dearly lovo to hear, If you enjoyed a quiet pipe, And whether you liked beer; And whether barbers shaved your chin, Or—careful of your pelf— You always shaved yourself, William, Shaved your chin yourself. We're told despite your famo, William, Dcspito your wondrous .fame, That you were not yourself at all, But had another name. They say those plays were Bacon's works, And if they say what's true, Then who on earth were you, William, Who ou earth wero yoir— -Coulson.
THE OPTIMIST. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 10 February 1912
THE OPTIMIST. The toiler had tears on his cheeks, His eliildron were starving, lie Haiti; Ho hadn't had work lor six weeks, And lie heartily wished lie were dead. The optimist prodded liis chest, And guffawed and merrily twirled, And said, "It is all for tlio best I'n this jolly old world!' The widow stood lonely and frail, And said, looking sadly around, "The vessel went down in a gale, And my son and my husband were drowned." The optimist listened with zest, And answered with comforting mirth, "Iia,'ha! It is all for the best On this merry old earth!" "Come, laugh!" ho exclaimed, "and you'll find The wrinkles will fade from your face.'' Then up came a motor behind, And left him as flat as a plaice; And the folks whom his fun had de pressed Their hats in tho air gaily hurled, And remarked, "It in all for tho boat In this jolly old world!" —Coulson.

FROM a WOMAN'S STANDPOINT. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 10 February 1912
FROM a WMW% STAND POINT. Although most of us know something of the work or the Children's Courts in our midst, there are few, perhaps, ivho realise the full extent of their operations, or their beneficial and far-reaching re sults. Less than 70 years ago there was practically no distinction' made between the treatment of the child and the adult criminal. Wo read that so late as 18111 children were transported for the most trilling olfences. Jn the year 1S40 two hundred boys, of ages varying- from 11 to 1G, were sent to Ilobart as convicts! In lSfiO, public sentiment seems to have been stirred upon the subject of the treatment of criminals generally, and we find the old, haphazard methods ultimately superseded by the reformatory or industrial school for the juvenile offender. The establish ment of Children's Courts( which, like so many excellent institutions, owe their origin to America, marks a still further advance in the method of dealing with delinquent children. Full provision f...

AX AUCTIONEER'S EXPERIENCE At tlie clearing sale conducted by -Messrs. W. K. Garnsey, senr., at liulomo oil Wednesday, the auction eer for the day was Mr. Frank Wall and as the thermometer registered 109 dgerees, and this excessive heat was accompanied by clouds of dust and a high wind, it will be admitted that his task was no enviable one. Relieved only for half an hour by Mr. Garnsey, Mr. Wall wielded the hammer during the disposal of over three hundred lots, so that his posi tion was no sinecure.

In its second year, tho Now South "Wales head office was oponcd, in 'Sydney; and Mr. AY. A. Gibh lias boon its manager, since 1884.

WIRELESS. A Visit to Pennant Hills. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 10 February 1912
A ViBiff to Pennant Hills. It was a beautiful afternoon in mid summer, the sun shone with extra bril liance, but its heat was tempered by a l fairly strong breeze from" tiie nor'-east, | making our trip a pleasant one as far as the weather was concerned. Wo left Clyde Junction aboard the 2.8 p.m. train, and were soon .speeding past the Rosehill race ! course across the neat steel bridge which j spans the Parramatta Itlver, through about a mile ol' bush country; thence we ' wero taken through numerous cuttings 1 and over many high banks, bounded on 1 cither side by large orchards, with their j citrus and summer fruit trees. Travelling by this lino is rath or slow, on account ol" , the steep grades which prevail nearly all the way. Clyde station is only 201't. above sea-level, while Carlingl'ord (the terminus) is ".27 feet, and as the lino is only 4 miles long, it shows an increase in height ol" 307 feet in that distance.
