To Fight Holman. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 11 July 1913
To Fight Holman. . Says the Gundagai "Independent":— (There is still an air of uncertainty overhanging the selection of a Liberal candidate ior Cootamundra State seat. Mr. Tom Spring lias been chosen as the Farmers' candidate, but lias not been selected by the Liberal organisa tion. Mr. Fuller, a defeated candidate at the recent Federal elections, has also been mentioned, but when all is said and done, the man chosen to oppose Holman is almost certain to bo Mr. C. J. Fraser, of Gundagai. This paper stated this fact over 12 months ago, but Mr. Fraser has re peatedly denied that he intends to run. He has, however, said to have changed' his mind, and lias intimated to the local Liberal League that if ...csrtfHJl things are "done,' and a District • Lib*' eral Council is formed and gives him tho .nomination, he'" will''step up and oppose Holman.

i LADIES' LETTER. 1 (By "Irene.") One cold wet morning some days ago tne head of a small, but ultra fashlonable seminary for young peo ple, noticing that one or two of her pupils looked as if the rain had never touched them, asked the youthful son of a high official how he had come. "I came in my 'motah,'." he replied consequentially. "And how did you come, dear?" queried the teacher of a little girl who was looking particular ly splc and span. "I came in my go loshes," answered the little one, equal ly importantly. The male wall-flower does not ap parently enjoy looking on any better than his sister does, judging by an in cident which happened at a suburban two-step, where, by accident or de sign, no less than thirty young men found themselves in the majority. Having counted heads and found out the Bad truth, the spokesman of these thirty masculine mural decorations, crying "Perish the thought," sent an envoy to hire a billiard room near by, which, with the aid of the smoking room,...
