.NICOLA.—THE GUIS AT MAGICIAN. A contemporary speaking of Nic olu's performance says that, some ot the illusions caused people to stare at tlieir neighbours and -gasp; others waken an irresistible desire: in slaid business men & matter-of-fact mat rons to pinch themselves to prove they do hot dream. : Of such kind is the trick entitled "The Appoint ment."

One of liis young lady assistants makes her exit at the wings, another young lady and a male assistant commence to turn the cabinet round. At the end of a single revolution the male assistant has disappeared and Nicola stands in his place. Inside the cabi net sits the young lady who has left the stage but a few moments before, i Another astounding illusion is call ed "The Sailor and the Girl."

A GREAT COMMERCIAL ENTERPRISE. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 2 March 1912
A GREAT COMMERCIAL ENTER PRISE. "Cannot one beacli be saved from the desecration of the surf-bather and sun-hatcher?" is the latest ap— peal from an apparently old-fashion ea man whose sensibilities have been shocked to the last degree. His complaint is that "there does not seem to be one yard ot' sand where we and our children may go and enjoy a day at the seaside, and be free from the spectacle of hordes of 1 three-parts naked men and unsex cd women running wild all over the place." The complainant has here over-stepped the marlc, an error which complainants in general fall Into so readily. Surf-bathers are not three parts naked; tli6y are three-parts dressed. The women who disport themselves in the surf are not unsexed, though their in dulgence in "surfing" does cause taany people to wonder what the World is coming to. The propriety of women bathing among men still gives rise to spasmodic controversy, which usually leaves off at just about where it began. But the surf lt.g craze ...

Sydney, together with tlio distinct- ' Ion of "Sir" recently conferred up on liiin, liau brought that gentleman egai'i under public notice in the land where he played ii prominent part as a "newspaper man" in the j early days of his career, It used to ' be said that Hennikcr Heaton "made the 'Town and Country Jour nal." In those days Henniker Ilca ion constituted himself a pioneer country traveller; he went far and vide in the "good old days" of ftpd Co., scd' Introduced the "Town and Countrv," to the homes of the people out back. In this way he got the credit of having "made" the paper, which was prin ted by Samuel Bennett, who estab lished it in connection with the "livening News" in the city Henn iker Ileaton pushed himself into prominence by publishing "Men ol Mark," a book giving biographical sketches of most of the public men of Sydney of that day.

In and Around Sydney. Written Specially for Country Readers. SOMETHING IN A NAME. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 2 March 1912
!n and Around Sydney. r Written Specially for Country Headers. (By T.C.13.) ' SOMETHING IN A NAME. Ridicule kills quickly. It strangled the Million Club of Sydney in its Infancy. Tho successor to that short lived frolic Is the Million Club of New South Wales, born three days ago, and it will bo fun to see the publt", reception of the little strang er. The new-comer is aiming high; It will appoint three sectional com mittes3 to advise the council as to the lines of work to be followed in connection with immigration, closer settlement, increased production, and public health. This sounds well, and to watch for what it means, if anything in particular, will be more amusement. A number of best people lent their names to the Million Club of Sydney, whose object was to hurry on the approach of the population million mark of the metropolis. The man in the Etreet, without his glasses, saw in that bare suggestion an unmasked aggravation of the Sydney versus Country feud. After the point of t...
KING OF THE KITCHEN. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 2 March 1912
KING OF THE KITCHEN. "And now, in the sun set of his days, in the land to -which he owed eerytliing, he felt that, he could ren der no greater service than to make communication between their sunder ed coasts as easy as speech, mid as free as air, and by means of cheap telegraphy annihilate time and distance, and place at the dis posal of the people the God-given .gift of electricity which is now writhing under the spell of a too masterful magician—the cable king and the cable ring." The quoted | peroration is Sir Iienniker Heaton's; the special reason for quoting it is ' the reference therein to the 'God given gift' electricity. In Sydney this comparatively new servant of man is being harnessed and brought j under control in many directions, and in astonishing ways. The latest aim is to install it as king of the kitchen. Touch the button and it ■ boils the billy, and browns the breakfast toast to a turn. It cleans the knives, and it puts an extra Bhine on the silver-ware. It sweeps...

Greatness of Australia. DEAN OF NEWCASTLE'S STRIKING SERMON. The first church parade of the naval cadets under the compulsory service scheme was held at Newcastle last Sun day morning, at the Anglican Cathedral. The parade was voluntary, but the keen ness of the boys was shown in a remark able way—there not being a single absen tee. The attendance numbered 260 of all ranks. The service wa« of a stirring character, and the Dean of Newcastle de livered and eloquent address : " At the present- time," the Dean said, " Australia is passing through a period of social and industrial unrest. What the outcome will be no one can foretell beyond this, that a continuance of this unrest, a continuance of this strike must, sooner or later, cripple the greatness of Australia. Men in one class of life fight for increased pay, some times with apparent reason, sometimes without. They do not seem to see that with their bigger wage comes the bigger cost of living, with the result that they are often po...
