BROOK'S PICTURES. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 2 February 1912
BROOK'S PICTURES. Large as have been the audiences tliat liave attended Brook's moving pictures at the Town Hall every Wed nesday evening, that of Wednesday last exceeded any up to date. These weekly shows have now become an established Institution in the town, not only because of their excellence, but partly because Mr Frank H. Brook has kept his promise to make, the quality fit the audience. "If they patronise me," said lie, wfien he started this season, "I'll guarantee to give the public the best'that can' be procured." That he "made good" last Wednesday every one in the audience who saw the magnifi cent films reeled off will admit. That the pictures were appreciated, and that the choice of subjects was popu lar, is demonstrated by the fact that, despite a sweltering atmosphere, the interest never lagged. As usual, Mr Brook shows in Parkes next Tuesday, and in Forbes on Wednesday.

POPULAR ASTRONOMY. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 2 February 1912
POPULAR ASTRONOMY, LECTURE BY ME WRAGG-E. Forbes lias been on the qui vive for the past week or two in antici pation of a visit from Mr Clement Wragge, who may with truth he said to occupy a foremost position amongst the world's meteorologists, and whose popular lectures through out Australia, illustrated as they are by rare slides, are so eagerly looked forward to. Astronomy is such a vast subject that it is not an easy matter to make it interesting to all; only the thoughtful and intellectual fully appreciate a lecture on the sub ject, and, unhappily, the majority are not both intellectual and thoughtful, and there is unfortun ately in this generation a tendency towards the burlesque play, the taw dry novelette, "what's the matter with father?" and "The bloodstained pirate of the Spanish main." But Mr Wragge handles his stupendous subject so lightly and airily, and spices it with touches of delicious humour that you feel at the end of the lecture that you have been un consciously ...

BENA. (From Our Own Correspondent). I Intended to give a detailed ac count of the opening of Billy's Look out Hall; but having only meagre particulars, my report will be some what curtailed. The day was occupied with a cric ket match between Bena and Look out clubs. Bena lads were vic torious by an innings and 3 runs. A. Ridley was perhaps the hero of the day. For Bena he scored 5 6 out of a total of 114, and also captured 6 wickets for 25 runs. This young fellow, who is 17 years of age, gives promise of developing into a very fine athlete. Hall, 4 for 2G, was also successful with the ball for Bena. The Lookouters put together 31 and SO. Sports were also held during the day. Of course, the kiddies were very much in evidence with their footracing, etc.; but the adults were also provided with some amusement. Results are as follows:— Bicycle Race, 2 miles.—W.

CRICKET. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 2 February 1912
CRICKET. The return match between Goola gon g and Trajere was played on-the latter's wicket on Saturday last, and resulted in Goolagong suffering a do feat by an innings, and - 20 ' runs. Goolagong, who were represented by a weak team, batted poorly, mainly through the bowling of S. Myring and D, Herbert. Trajere notched 75 in their innings, Proctor and Beath do ing good work with the ball for the visitors. The best batting for Tra jere was shown by E. Ditton in a neatly compiled and chanceless in nings of 25 not out. The other batsmen were patchy. Trajere fielded splendidly, the work of W. Marsh and E. Ditton (who disposed of W.
