ADVENTURE WITH BEES. [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 17 December 1915

ADVENTURE WITH BEES. A very unpleasant experience fell to the lot of Mr. Joe Crane, at Dar balara last week, says the Gundagai " Times." Mr. Crane was mowing'a j lucerne patch, when a swarm of bees lodged oa him and his horses, and for the time nearly drove the lot mad. Mr. Crane jumped off his seat and tried to free the horses from the mower, which he succeeded in doing' after being knocked down several times by the horses' efforts to get rid of the stinging pest. , He then tried to make them trot away, but the bees were too busy, and the horses getting such a bad time, that this was hopeless. Gathering some lucerne, Mr Crane then brushed the bees from the poor animals' heads and started them trotting away. By this time the bees were all over Mr Crane, and he lay down and covered himself with lucerne, thinking to get rid of them. He soon found out his cover was no good, so he got up and ran wildly through a heavy thistle crop which brushed the bees off. Mr Crane then went home, and...

A JOY RIDE—AND WHAT HAPPENED. Late 011 Sunday afternoon a gentle man from the country drove into Youn.q; (says the "Witness,") and placed his horse and sulky in one of the local hotel yards. After tea, at about 8 o'clock, two of the girls at the hotel decided to use the farmer's sulky for the purpose of having what is known in motor circles as a "joy xide," and set off round the town. The girls, however, were not what could be called good drivers, and so it was not long before the horse got out of control. Turning sharply around the corner from Clarke-street the two girls were thrown out of the sulky, and the horse came up Bur rowa-street at a great pace, and /when turning the corner near Dob son's hotel the sulky struck the electric light pole, and wrecked the ■vehicle. The horse then cleared ont, and was last seen in the vicinity of the Excelsior laundiy, about a mile from town, where it was secured next morning, We understand that damage to the extent of £20 "was caused, and the ...

" BERNASCONIS SOLDIER " Up in the New England town of Walcha Mr. Cecil Bernaeeoni, late of Orange, is a popular and successful hotelkeeper, and besides "pulling" beer for thirsty Walcbaeians, puts in gome of bis spare time in endeavor ing to induce the young single fre quenters of bis juicery to get intcf khaki. The other night he was en gaging some of them with war talk, and the necessity for them to get in to khaki, and finished up by offering to give one of the young men a ten ner if he would go. The nativej whose name was Ray, immediateley jumped at the offer, and, succeeding in passing the doctor, is now a fully fledged membei of the Australian Expeditionai-y Forces. He calls him self "Bernasconi's Soldier," but Cecil calls him "Bernasconi's Light Horse."' Recnuiting at £10 per head is rather a costly procedure, but we cannot help commending Mr. Bernasconi on his liberality and his patriotism.

In past sea sons it was no trouble to sell wheat in second-hand bags, bat the new arrangement will come as a great hard ship,or farmers will have the trouble of re-baggiug their , wheat, being put to the expense of new ba>gs, as well as losing the second hand bags.
