THE BEST DRINK OF ALL. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 24 February 1912
THE BEST DRINK OF AI,L. The very best drink in hot weather is O.T. With plain cold water or aerated drinks, iced if desired, it makes a blend that is really thirst -quenching and satisfy ing. For the moment O.T. warms ihe palate, but it leaves you cooler afterwards. By using this beverage you escape the risk of impurities in water and the possible ill effects on the stomach of cold draughts. One bottle of O.T. makes 20 drinks. Many imitations are sold for O.T., but they do not possess its merits.*

THE BOARD OF CONTROL. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 24 February 1912
THE BOARD OF CONTROL. New South Wales has survived the ca lamities of droughts and bush fires, Hoods arid devastation, strikes and industrial paralysis, but the most staggering blow it has ever yet received is its defeat in the test matches. It appears to be taken for granted that Sydney's present generation will never completely recover i'rcm the effects of this paralysing stroke. Probably a Commission will be appointed to inquire into the cause of the national disaster, but in the meantime the Australian cap tain has thrown a flicker of light upon the dark mystery of the Australians' defeat. According to Mr. Clem. Hill the defeat of Australia was brought about largely by the Board of Control. The Board of Control says Mr. Hill, "got on the players'nerves."

"THE WORST IN THE WORLD." [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 24 February 1912
" THE WORST IN THE WORLD." " The manner in which the footpaths and the roadways are allowed to remain littered with scraps of dirty newspapers and other refuse is a disgrace. We boast about the progress made in the municipal government during the past ten years. In many respects we have net progressed in the least. The streets are a standing dis grace." If a visitor came over to Sydney from the " Cabbage Garden ' and passed pertinent remarks similar to the foregoing the defenders ot the "City of the Beautiful Harbour " would put on their war paint and proceed to vehemently denounce the offender. But the observations were made by the ex-Lord Mayor of Sydney, Aid. Hughes, who recently returned from an extensive trip abroad, and instead of an indignant and vigorous defence being put up the remarks will be quietly overlooked and soon forgotten. It does appear to be singular that the wealthy City Council fails notoriously to make Sydney a clean city. With every wind the dust nuisance is ...
A PRIZED POSSESSION. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 24 February 1912
A PRIZED POSSESSION. "Nerves" seem to be one of the most prized possessions of our time. There was a day when the people managed to get along first-rate without nerves in this land of sunshine ; they did without them in the same way that they did without electric lights, lifts and tramears. But now the Judt;e on the Bencli and the news boy on the street corner, the lady in the thousand pound motor car and the girl in the pickle factory, tiie speculator on the Stock Exchange and the crier at the picture show, the top-rung politician and the bottom rung municipal employee, the man of "artistic temperament," and the man with no temparament worth mention ing—all alike now have " nerves." These precious neives, too, have a slavish habit of always being in the way, and there's al ways somebody or something getting on to them. In the ten seconds conversation with the man you meet in the street op portunity has been wasted if he misses telling you about what has got on to his nerves.
