LEVIATHAN BULLOCK TEAMS. A SPLENDID SPECTACLE. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 19 January 1912
LEVIATHAN BULLOCK TEAMS. A SPLENDID SPECTACLE. We almost felt inclined to head this article "When the circus comes to town," because of the spectacular effect of 2G bullocks," four abreast, drawing a waggon which is undoubtedly the King of the Roads, with 150 bags of wheat on it, and followed by another team with the same number of bullocks, the same huge waggon, and the same tonnage of cargo; and they were the most even teams of enormous bullocks we have ever seen, and all mud'fat—fit for the butcher, and drawing nearly 13 tons of wheat behind each team for Clark's local flour mills, and. for transit by rail. The team?, waggons, and loading were the property of Grieves brothers, of Mylandra and Mylandra Park, out half way to Grenfell. We have already^ had occasion to applaud, with' all the vigor that we are capable, the advent of these experienced South Australian wheat farmers to our. midst, and a short account of the enterprise of these brothers, who are both young men, and of th...

A GOOD MOVE. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 19 January 1912
A GOOD MOVE. - It is frequently a good move to give up old fashioned ideas, and adopt new ideas and methods more suitable to the existing conditions of things and requirements of the present day. It is a good move to study carefully the methods of the successful man, whatever his vocation may be, and try and learn the secret of his success; it will generally be comprised in the two words, judgment and perseverance. It is a good move to discard old fashioned and worthless tools of trade and of husbandry, and to purchase modern tools'instead. . It is: a good move for the dairyman who has a second rate cream separator, which is not to be relied upon, to put it on one side, and.purchase a modern "Alfa-Laval" machine without delay. It is a good move for the dairyman with litrge herds, instead of wasting half the day and night milking by hand, to instal L-K-G Milking Machines immediately, as in two years the saving effected in wages alone will have paid for the plant. Summarised, it is th...
OUR LADIES' LETTER, [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 19 January 1912
OUR LADIES' LETTER, (By Reseda). Many surf bathers are having a rather doubtful time of it this season. . There must have been a solemn con clave of sharks, who decided to look for toothsome bits among' the bathers, for monster after monster has been caught in the favored bathing spot, the lagoon so favored by children was the last to be annoyed with their ushy presence. The hot weather conditions drive many of our folk to the mountains in summer time; it is remarkable how very unsuitably some of the temporary mountaineers dress. In one of the fashionable boarding houseis one can see any morning in the week various Sydney folk appearing at breakfast in transparent dressing jackets, shivering- and shaking with the cold in their efforts to look chic, whereas a sensible morning frock ^ would not only be more comfortable from a hygienic point of view, but also more in keeping with propriety. One madame, newly wed, appears at breakfast in a transparent dressing jacket, goes out picnickin...

TICHBORNE. The Parkes "Champion" correspondent writes:—"Wheat carting is in full swing, being rather later this year than usual, owing to the broken weather experienced at harvest time.

CURRENT TOPICS. HART, THE BIRDMAN. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 19 January 1912
CURRENT TOPICS. HART, THE BIRDMAN. "You must put some salt on the tail of the bird, if you want to catch him," says the wordly wise parent to the credulous youngling. "But, dad," says the precocious youngling, "how am I to catch him?" This is the problem for Forbes, if we want to see the bird-flight of this wonderful aviator, who is proud to style himself an Australian, and who has made as few mistakes in his flights through the air as any aviator we read of. How are we to raise the funds? That is the problem. The guarantee asked is 150. What is that? .Why if a circus came to town, it would carry away more than that! . And Forbes must not.^be behind "other towns, for assuredly the birdman. will, easily get the necessary . guarantees; elsewhere. Thei'e should be no trouble about it.
