THE BOGAN GATE ROAD. THE WORK OF TWO SHIRES. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 16 January 1912
THE WORK OF TWO SHIRES. Part of the Bogan Gate road is under the jurisdiction of the Jemalong Shire Council, arid part under that of the Goobang Shire Council. It is easy for the traveller to note the boundary. From Forbes outwards for 10 miles, the road is well looked after, ruts are filled in, and water tables cut, and dead timber cleared for the full width of the road. Beyond that the road is entirely neglected, and is liberally strewn with dead timber. A few chains from the 14 mile peg an immense tree lies directly across the whole width of the road. It was portion of a green tree when it fell some eight or nine months ago, but as it dried some enraged traveller, forced to blaze out a new track through the surrounding bush, set fire to the head of it, and continuous traffic since has bitten off, bit by bit, sufficient of the topmost boughs to leave room for a narrow track. The country is so flat, and the natural conditions for scorching so good, that some night a flying motorist...

The death of the late Mr 1-Ianbury Clements, one time owner of Eu\x=req-\ gowra station, and the story related |iri these columns recently of the stool so carefully preserved by Mr Thomas Doyle, of Yamma, have stirred some old reminiscences of the bushrangers. It is not generally known that when Ben Half and his gang raided Bathurst, the late Mr W. Farrand, afterwards police magistrate at Forbes, and father of the present librarian in this town (Mr-AV. W. Far rand), set out with Captain M'Lerie in hot pursuit, and missed the gang by only ten minutes-at the Hen and Chickens. - It was the tliir.teen-year-old daugh-' ter.of Mr W.

CURRENT TOPICS. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 16 January 1912
CURRENT TOPICS. The devolution of the hatpin has arrived. It has had its dawn and its noon, and now its sun has passed the meridian, and is on the downward slope. It is a law of Nature that evolution is followed by devolution. Nothing lives for ever. ^-In her youth, the hatpin was a modest, useful little essential part of woman's headgear. We assume that the! hatpin is of the feminine gender: But she is no linger modest. She has grown to enormous dimensions, and is a free bailee that is no respecter of persons in a crowd. She has grown to be elaborate in design, of enormous length, costly to purchase, and of sufficient-strength to be used as a stiletto. With the evolution of the hatpin, it was feared by physiologists that woman's tongue, her natural defender, would disappear from disuse. At all events, man lias had to take up arms against her. l'n Swit zerland the other, day, over a hundred women were fined for violating a newly-made law, prohibiting the use of the full-grown hatpin...
The Forbes Advocate, TUESDAY, JANUARY 16, 1912. IRRIGATION AT FORBES. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 16 January 1912
%\z Jfoite ^bfrocai*, TUESDAY, JANUARY 16, 1912. IRRIGATION AT FORBES. Irrigation, in the minds of many, is associated with those big ventures which only the man with capital or command of capital can successfully undertake. Its advantages and benefits are, therefore, not properly? appreciated, because the demonstrations of its utility' are fai' between. Of course, another reason why it is not more generally gone in for is that the first essential is . a good water - supply, and away from the rivers tiis mostly puts irrigation out of the question. Then, again, there is a certain amount of misunderstanding as to its cost and comparative results. One often hears arguments against irrigation as a paying proposition, . but we venture to say that the anti-irrigationists would in every case find they had not a leg to stand upon if they made a point of going thoroughly into the question, and working it out fpr themselves on the basis of the practical results and experience of others. We .a...
THE WYALONG DISASTER. HOW IT OCCURRED. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 16 January 1912
THE WYALOHQ DISASTER. HOW IT OCCURRED. The seventh man of the mining tragedy, Wellington, is doing well. The accident occurred after the men had holed through to an old drive, which, unexpectedly, contained foul air and a little water. The men sat down at a level beneath the old workings, waiting for the water to drain out, when a rush of carbon dioxide suffocated them. Further particulars show that the accident happened just as the men were leaving at 4 o'clock on Satui'\x=req-\ day afternoon from the 500ft. level. A shot had been put in, and the men withdrew from the face. Apparently an old working had been broken into, and in passing a sudden inrush of gas caught the men, and they were killed- where they stood. The rescuers suffered considerably from foul air, while they recovered the bodies, one- being in a serious condition. (The fli'st" details of the disaster appear on another page of this issue).
