COULDN'T GET HIS CHEQUE CASHED. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 11 January 1912

COULDN'T GET HIS CHEQUE CASHED. Forbes is evidently not a good place to go to get a cliequo cashed, as a man who was lucky enough to have paper for that amount, on him on Tuesday knows now to his sorrow. Michael McAuliflo was brought bofore tho For bes magistrates, and charged with tho offence, viz., trying to cash a £25(1 chequo, and has boon remanded for eight days' for medical observation. A man who walks about and flourishes a cheque for a couplo of hundred quid in (jicso days, would undoubtedly earn tho sobriquet of being "Ratty. But perhaps there may not havs been suffi cient money in the town to liquidate the big order, and so Mick's, dander "viz," and we can quite understand Michael's chargin, and high falution ot' tactics, and tho subsequent proceedings of tho force; and do not wonder at th<> poor blioy Roing off his nut.

Sudden ly his eyes fell on Sir Lionel, and to his amazement he saw a spray of white heath and fern in the button hole of his coat. He could hardly be lieve his own senses, but it was true. The earl looked at his wife, and saw at once tjhat from the bodice of her He was electrified. Could it-be pos sibe that his wife had taken a flower from her breast to give to anyone? Strang9 to say,.he did not feel jeal ous—it was not. that, it was wonder I and.surprise, and the desire to know why she had done it. .He went up to her. She was stand ing a little apart, reading the words of a new song, She looked up just a little startled. 'Vivian,' he asked, 'did you give that white heath to Sir Lionel?'

IMPRESSIONS OF AUSTRALIA LECTURE BY LORD DUDLEY. LONDON, Wednesday. Lord Dudley, ex-Governor-General, delivered a lecture last night on "Some' Impressions of Australia." He said Australia was teeming with vital questions. He agreed that Federa tion had worked well, and should be continued by popular vote, but its permanency in Its present form is a matter of considerable doubt. He said he would make no suggestions, as it suited Australians to say Eng lish criticism was an impertinence. He would only note , that the Senate acted as a drag on the legislative coach. It would .lie said, be wiser to wait before such an Important step as the selection of the Federal Capital was decided on. He said Melbourne would do very well, and It was unlikely Yass-Canberra would prove satisfactory to those called on to live there. He denied ever having said that there were professional poli ticians in Australia, and that they were corrupt. "What he did say was that there were too many profession al po...

NUMBERING THE HOUSES. Alderman King at Tuesday's Council meeting mentioned that1 it was a long while since the motion was carricd m the Council for the numberng of the houses in Orange. This is a matter that should be proceeded with at once, and lve do not want to wait until the East Orange amalgamation takes place. It will make no material difference to the Council i£ East Orange is not num bered uutil the two municipalities have joined forces. The naming of "the streets is also a matter of moment, and one that should be taken in hand at once, and wo commend the action of the aiderman in bringing it forward. The actual cost of the whole undertak ing is a-ve't-y small item, including clerical work, it cannot run into more than a shilling per house, and then the inconvenience which we are at pre sent under would be at an end. Why we want to wait until the amalgama tion takes place is puzzling the rate payers.
