LAND FOR THE SMALL MAN. 'A GOOD TIME AHEAD FOR SETTLERS. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 19 January 1912
LAND FOR THE SMALL MAN. 'A GOOD TIME AHEAD FOR SETTLERS. The Pinnacle estate, oE 20,000 acres," which is the property of the New Zealand Land Association, and managed by Mr George Lester, has. been sold- last week to a Victorian, who will sub-divide it immediately into lots that will suit purchasers,' and will -be put. on the market at once. - •••- ■ This subdivision has been brought about by. the approach of the ■ construction of the For bes-Stockinbingal railway, which will .create closer settlement all round the district. It is likely that other estates will be either subdivided, or purchased for subdivision along the route, and, further, the Government will probably resume estates for" closer settlement, as there is no better wheat- land, in New. South Wales. . - . •

OUR SERIAL STORY. WHEN A WOMAN WOOS. CHAPTER VI. (Continued). [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 19 January 1912
OUR SERIAL STORY. CHAPTER VI. (Continued). "How did you lcnow that I was a bad woman?" The question took him off his balance, and he gave a shout of laughter She colored at his amusement, looked down, and then up again defiantly. "One bad person always knows another by instinct," he said gravely. "I shouldn't have said you were bad," she said, eyeing him consider\x=req-\ ingly, as he stood with his hands on his hips, smiling broadly down at .her. ""'I'jiva terror," he said, and frowned and shook his head. "Oh, I'm not a baby," she said, rather impatiently, and looked away with deepened color. "Supposing anybody found you here?" he said, forgetting good manners in his curiosity to know how she regarded the situation. "You could hide me somewhere, couldn't you?" she said simply. He nodded, and sat down. Clearly she was not to be classified in a moment. He wished vaguely that she were a few years older. "I wish you'd smoke or something," she said, with a nervous laugh. "You make me unc...

CHAPTER VII. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 19 January 1912
CHAPTER VII. On Saturday afternoon Audrey generally went to read French with Mrs Helme. -The visit to Miraflores was her greatest pleasure o£ the week, but last Saturday she had been too miserable to go, and to-day she went with some reluctance. Mrs Helme was the only person in Lew Alston whose good opinion she really cared about, and she" felt now that she didn't deserve it any longer. To add to her guilty feelings, Mrs Helme received her with more than usual tenderness. Locked in an embrace that was warm, ana soft, and scented, and violet, all at the same time, Audrey knew that it was a mute commiseration upon whatever had caused her absence the Saturday before. She had never confided in Mrs Helme, but the latter knew that she was unhappy at home, and could probably made a shrewd guess at the chief cause of her unhappiness. "Cold, proud thing!" said Mrs Helme, punctuating her words with kisses. Releasing the girl" with moist eyes, she pushed her away, and held her at arm's length....
