women's column. i Prom a Woman's Standpoint. For the careful housewife, the subject j of house rent has always proved more or less of a problem, but with the steady all round increase In the cost of living, so noticeable of late, the question threatens | to become a serious one in the near future. So far the residents of Sydney, purlieu lariy those living within the city area, have been the chief'sufferers. The whole sale demolition of old buildings in the I poorer quarters of the city lias deprived numbers of house accommodation—of the j poorest description, it is true, the saving grace of cheapness alone pleading an ex tenuation for its existence. As is gener ally the ease, the heaviest burden falls upon those least able to bear it. Numbers of women, whose work lies in the city, find it dillieult to secure suitable lodging within their moans, and aro compelled either to pay a higher rent than they can afford or face the alternative of doubtful surroundings. The difficulties of the...

DOWN THE DARKENING TRACK. The Scent of the Bush. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 24 February 1912
DOWN THE DARKENING TRACK. The Scent of tho Buali. Where the monotonous stock-route cuts through the vast virgin forest lands and fur-reaching scrub lands of wild Western Australia, I am at one with the free com panions of the ever open road. Many hun dred of leagues north and south stret ches that rough and heavy track; and here, moving leisurely from camp to camp, from well to well, by day and night, the big droves of lean horned cattle come with a thunderous tramp as of an army on the inarch. Huddled together, roan, red, black, and . while, wild-eyed, bellowing mobs, that, scenting water at the end of a long, thirsty stage, suddenly • stampede, an ir j resistible phalanx overbearing all oppo sition. On their flanks ride tireless drovers, lean as the cattle they tend, bestriding thin and wiry .horses. The deep brool of a maddened bull; the rifle-crack of the curling stock-whip, the gruff voices of centaur-like men—these sounds come to me of an evening as I stand in the green forest...

CARRIAGES, BUGGIES, AND MOTOR CARS. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 24 February 1912
CARRIAGES, BUCCIES, AND MOTOR CARS. Tlio rapid growth of Messrs. Ang us and Sons' trade in motor cars lias led somti peoplo to .suppose that this 50-year-old firm was paying only se condary attention to us horse-drawn vehicles. That this is not so is shown by the fact thill Liu: Castleroagh-street 'house at this very moment actually has a stock of no less than 250 as sorted vehicles, in which are included many superb American types equipped with the latest improvements and others manufactured' at the linn's own factory.

THE LACHLAN ELECTORATE. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 28 February 1912
THIS LACHTjAX Ef/ECTOHATE. The question of joining in the protest of the South Western District Council (Wya long) of the Farmers and Settlers' Associ ation against the inclusion of Nymagee, Mount Hope, and other Cobar electorate (now disbanded) centres in the Lachlan electorate as newly constituted was con sidered at the Farmers and Settlers' As sociation meeting on Saturday afternoon. The secretary, Mr, M. J. Smith, read the communication from the council at Wya long respecting the matter. The basis for the protest was that, with the present rail way systems, there were no interests com mon to the Cobar district centres named and the principal places in the Lachlan electorate. This opinion was concurred in I y those present at the meeting, but the futility of any protest was questioned. It was, however, pointed out that the redis tribution scheme had not yet been finally adopted and it was resolved, on the motion of Messrs. Ellis and Beddie, to support the resolution of protest.
SATURDAY VISITORS TO TOWN. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 28 February 1912
SAXCKU.VY YlSl'l'OKS TO TOWX. Statements have been current oi: late as to the slackness oi busi ness in Forbes ot late weeks, and on some Saturdays the town- has been comparatively quiet. But a l'irm opinion that things are not what tlie.v seem is gathered from the briskness displayed at Mr. "\V. Jiogerson's stables every Saturday hi the storage of vehicles. Country folk driving into town find tlio new stables a most conveniout cen tre to put up their horses and traps, and each week end Mr. Rogerson finds accommodation for from 60 to 80 conveyances while the owners go about their- business in town. Last Saturday there were over 70 turn-outs in- the stable during the day, and on 'the previous Saturday the record was well over SO.

The Forbes Times. WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 28 th. TO KEEP THE TOWN CLEAN. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 28 February 1912
The Forbes Times. WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 28 th. TO KEEP THE TOWN CLEAN. A more than usually strongly worded report was submitted to the Sydntey city council last week by the chief inspector of the cleansing department in reference to the diffi culties suet with in the efforts of the cleaning staff of the city to ke^> the streets as free as possible of rubbish and refuse -which,- if al lowed to accumulate, inevitably lead to insanitation and ill-health. The matter may seem more or less irre levant to a country town such as Forbes, but a little reflection tends to the conclusion that the problem of keeping the town clean is equally as pressing and important in the interests of the community as a ■whole as it is in the metropolis. It is, however, a subject that re ceives even more opasmodic treat ment and consideration than the Sydney inspector complains of. Some weeks ago wo had occasion to Comment on the efforts of the Forbes inspector in this direction, public attention being drawn ...
