A Valiant Mcss?bcr. \ Premier McGowen and a number of Parliamentarians recently visited: Forbes in connection with the turning of the sod ceremony of Stockiubin gal railway. Mr. Gus. Miller, M. JU.A., (the man whom the JBuliet iu ' dubs ' the Monaro Foghorn ') arrived a bit late for the ceremony, and was pushing his way through the crowd when blocked by a lady of ample dimensions, with a baby in her arms. ' Who are you shov ing ?' the lady asked. 'Permit me, my good woman, to pass ; I wish to get to the platform, ' ' said Mr. Miiler. 'Well, get Vthere without shoving,' she said. This ! made Mr. Miller, who is a peppery j individal, snortT ' You ought to j be at home, y.ou and your baby.' But the^ lady scored all along the line, when she retorted, 'Ho, , you're one of those blasted Liberals, i I suppose.'

The Divining Rod. SUCCESS IN NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Bombala Times — 14 June 1912
Tl-c Divis?i??§ Rod. SUCCESS IN NEW ZEALAND. Wellington, May 31. — In a re cent issue of the 'Evening News' it was stated that Mr. Sullivan, of the Bathurst Municipal - Council, had scoffed at the divining rod as a 'Noah's Ark fad.' It may be re marked, in passing, that Noah did not need a rod to locate water. Time was when there were many Mr. Sullivans in New Zealand, but their ranks have been thinning since the advent of the Rev- Mr. Mason, who resides in the upper part of the North Island when he is not walking about the landscape with n rod which anxious eyes watch. Mr. Mason- has performed so valiantly with his little stick that the Govern ment, which stands aloof from reli gion, is not above chartering the divining rod. . Mr. Mason had several commissions from the late Government, and he has also been employed by the present ; Govern? ment. Evidently the Ministry, which is averse to having its Bible in the State schools, is willing to have the divining rod carried over State o...

Ai-. Acrobatic Jocljey. i 1 ? ? ? : ! Bathurst, Monday.— A jockey, i named Stone, had an exciting ex j perience during the running of the i Members' Handicap at the Bathurst races to-day. He was mounted on the favorite, Lord Daniels, but was thrown out ot the saddle. He main tained his grip of the reins, however, and clung to another horse galloping alongside tor support. As the field swung round the bend, about twenty yards further on, :he scrambled baqik into his seat. For a moment it looked as though Stone would fall on to the ground and be galloped upon, and when he had recovered his position the crowd was very I much relieved. ' .

Day Labor on the North Coast [Newspaper Article] — The Bombala Times — 14 June 1912
[ Day Labor on the Horth Coast A North Coast correspondent writes aa follows : — ''It is rather funny to read the remarks of Mr. Griffith, Minister for Publio Works, on the day labor system. Ic is a pity he could not travel inoog. and see what is going on in regard to the sections from South Grafton 'to. Glenreagh, and CofTa Harbor to the Nambucca. Nothing outside oomio opera can equal the day labor business here. It took three weeks to put down two girders at Boambee, and the men reokon now that it is a fair day's work to drive a horse and cart seven miles ; then they, oamp and go on next morning. If it were not a very serious thing, the whole matter could only be looked upon as a huge picnic.'
