A SAD HAPPENING. i We deenlv regret to report the low state of Mrs Cliatman, senr., consequent on a severe stroke of paralysis early in* the week.

The absence of any movement about the place on Sunday and Monday was commented upon, and elicited the thought that Mrs Cliatmari was awa'y. Suspecting something amiss, Mr J. Banham visited the place on Monday evening, and forcing- his way through a window, to his horror came upon" the form of Mrs Cluitman, lying, face downwards iii an "unconscious condition on the floor of the front room. Willing helpers were soon at hand, and Dr. Deloliery wired for. -.'On examination, the old lady was found to be badly bruised, arid her condition, indicated that she had struggled and suffered much- in her agonising plight through two days, arid a night of the worst weather...

A CURIOUS ERROR. "SP.L." NOT "C.P." [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 19 January 1912
A CURIOUS ERROR. "SP.L." NOT "C.P." The above seems a cryptic sort of a heading, and it is necessary to explain that the quoted letters mean "special lease" and "conditional purchase," two forms of land tenure which have a widely different aspect to aldermen, judging by their attitude at the meeting of aldermen who constitute the trustees of the town common. Notification had been made to the trustees that Mr A. Mar\x=req-\ rin was applying for a "c.p.". of two. acres within the town common, for a timber yard, .and that the hearing of the application would take place on the 2fjtli January at the meeting of the Local Land Board. This should have read "sp.l." Aldermen started off under a misapprehension of tne real nature of the application, and some tangled discussion arose. . The Mayor (who is chairman) said the trustees offered no objection to a special lease; this was npt a "c.p." Alderman Patterson said everyone should be allowed to know when, annual leases were to be granted; the...
