Morton, and Baw Bee will be trained at Rosohill with Aurot'odina, Didus, and Co. * # * The Atliletic Club in Kl-w York' has telegj"'iv'-i«d to Jack Johnson malting him an offer of £3000 for a 10-round bout with Joe Jeanette. That the champion lias not lost his form is tiie opinion of those who saw him work the other day. There is a little fat, but the speed for a man who had not worked for five weeks was amazing. Joe Choynski and Kid Cutler are big men, but they appeared as novices in his hands, the negro bullying and tug ging them around the ring. John son's judgment of distance and speed was superior to that of the other men. :!s * J. E. Yeo, the Sydney...

THE MAN THEY COULD NOT HANG. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 10 January 1912
THE MAN THEY COULD NOT HANG. A somewhat gruesome title this, and one which however attractiv to a large number of people would probably repel others by a sugges tion of horror, tint there is no thing repulsive in the play—but plenty of thrill of intense dramatic action, interspersed with comedy by the favorite and popular comedian, Mr. Tom Curran, of the Geo. Mar low Co., Sydney, and who during John F. Sheridan's life was a pro minent member of his company. Playgoers will witness a work of genuine dramatic art performed by capable actors and actresses, such as Ed. Armitage, Harry Golding, Frank Davenport, Chas. Keegan, and Miss Nellie Armitage (for seve ral years leading lady for Taylor Carrington Co.), Miss Kleanor Gur ney, soubrette (of "William Ander son Co.), Maggie Wyllie, character artiste, and others. The scenery is from sketches from the little ham let of .Babbacombe, from the brush of the popular scenic artist, John F. Williams. The drama will be produced in Forbes 011 a mo...

Driver Hill was proving a very cap able man for the position. Corbett's gang was at work on the Bogan Gate road, and Harvey and assistant had been engaged on the Parkes and Bogan Gate roads. Gorman am his assistant had finished the work on wash-out on the North Condobo lin road, and would now proceed to work on the Warroo and Yarraban dai road.

SNAKK IX Misa Watts, who lives at the Myall, 60 miles from Walcha, was aroused a few nights ago by her little sister declaring that there was a snake in the bed.

SHIRE COUNCIL AND ANONYMOUS CRITICS. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 10 January 1912
SHIRE COUNCIL AND ANONY MOUS CRITICS. At the Jenialong Shire Council meeting on Saturday the president's attention was directed to a letter published recently in one of the Forbes papers under 110111 de plume, in which the writer passed certain strictures on the work of the Coun cil's load malcing plant. Councillor Brown said he had observed the let ter, and if the writer had signed 'lis name he would have considered it his 'duty to reply. But he was not going to take any notice of a writer who was not prepared to sign iiis name. Anyway, the letter was probably written by some one who ■.(id not know what the Council was doing. Cr. Sly said ltis name was mentioned lu the letter, but, like the president, he would not reply to a person who would not sign his name It was noted also that the letter ended up with the usual cry of an onymous writers, that they hoped to see some abler pen than theirs take up the subject.
ONLY TWO DEFAULTERS. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 10 January 1912
ONLY TWO 1)K1&lt;\\ ULTERS. The two individuals who spoilt the Jcmaiong Shire Council's record £or having a clean sheet in regard to outstanding rates at the end of the year—and that for the paltry amount of Ss 3d—deserve to have things said about them. The clerk told the councillors in meeting assembled on Saturday last that he had tried every means at hand short of is suing summonses to get in touch with the two defaulters, but he had failed; though he hoped to have the amounts collected without much more delay. Anyhow, the achieve ment in collecting the whole of the rates with the exception of those few few shillings within the twelve months—and that following on a year when absolutely the full sum due was collected—is one that redounds greatly to the credit of the clerk, and it also speaks we'll for the latepayers who have with only two exceptions paid up without that measure of "dunning" that is so unpleasant to all concerned, but. which is so often called for. And the ...
ACCIDENT TO AVIATOR HART. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 10 January 1912
ACCIDENT TO AVIATOR HAIiT. Aviator Jiart met with an acci dent oil Saturday while flying from Penrith to rarramatta. He was accompanied by Major .Rosenthal, one of his pupils, who weighs 17 stone. The voyage was without incident till in the vicinity of Mt. Druitt, where atmospheric peculiar ities unexpectedly developed. It had become necessary to effect a landing, and the aviator found it opportune to make a quick choice between landing in the scrub, and the railway line as a resting place. Mr. Hart decided on the railway line, and the telegraph line proved a serious obstacle. In descending a wing of the machine hit the tele graph post, and the passengers were toppled out. Mr. Mart sustained very slight injuries, but Major Ros enthal received a heavy cut under one of his eyes, caused by the goggles he was wearing breaking. Mr. Hart will resume his flight to day, and possibly he will consider it wise to have a companion of less robust proportions. Men who weigh 17 stone should, we th...
