FIRST APPEARANCES. Somo Woll Known Actors' Early Efforta. "Wliatevor dazzling heights of success an actor may reach," Sir Henry Irving: once said, "he never forgets, humiliating though the memory may be, his first mod est appearance on the stags, although half a century or more may have passed over his head." In many cases this memory can be but dim, especially in the case of actresses, some at least of whom made their first stage curtsey before they had properly learned the art of nursing their dolls. Jlrs. Kendal, for instance, had seen only two birthdays when she blossomed into an actress. "Tho legend," she says,, "is that 1 appeared in the character of a blind child; but when I got on tho stage I for got jill my blindness when I caught sight of my nurse, and I called out to her, 'Alary, do you see my new shoes?'

THE RIVER RAILWAY. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 30 March 1912
THE KlVlilt KAIL WAV. Our Condobolin contemporary, the 'Lachlander' is not very generous or polite in its comment on the desire of the Forbes railway league for a 'south of the river' railway. The sarcastic critic also hits rather wide of the mark with his shaft. Quote: "Forbes people are working with a view of getting the proposed Broken Hill railway extension to run from Forbes along the south Bide of the Lachlan. New 1110011 came in on the 20th .inst!" We may x-etort that the Forbes people start ed the move long before the iJOtii inst. In fact the first request for the railway dates back some years, and it has been very favorably commented on by a former Public Works Commitee. Again, the de sire is not for the proposed Broken Hill extension to be made from Forbes, but for the line from Ca nowindra via Eugowra aiid Forbes to join on to the liuo which we be— lievo will very soon be authorised from Condobolin to Broken Hill. Perhaps if the Condobolin writer will have another look at...

THE NEW RESEKVOIK. The new water supply reservoir has at length been completed, and on Thursday it was formally taken over by the CouneiJ, after an in spection made by a departmental of ficer, Mr. Reed. The contractor, Mr. A. Ball, and Mr. Reed were accompanied in the inspection uy the Deputy-Mayor, Aid. Wallace Hunter, and the Town Clerk, Mr. J. W. Mills. There was no "formal op ening" or "turning on" ceremony of any kind. The amount of tliet con tract let to Mr. Ball was £5245, which is stated to have been lower by some £1500 than other tenders received for the job when it was first undertaken. The erection of the reservoir has occupied some 12 months, but there were considerable delays owing to bad weather and other unforeseen troubles. The con tractor, however, has to his credit the opinion of the departmental en gineer that it is the best job of the kind he had yet had occasion to examine. The capacity of the reser voir is 75,000,000 gallons.

MR. JOHNSON AND THE GOVERNMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 30 March 1912
MR. JOHNSON AND THE GOYEKN MENT. The Chief Commissioner for Railways, in a statement to the press, states that he ■was never consulted by the Government with regard to tne Amending Railway Bill to provide for the constitution of a special board, comprising the Ministers for Railways and Works, and the Chief Com missioner for the purpose of controlling the work of duplicating the main trunk lines. Mr. Johnson strongly disapproved of the new proposal, which referred not only to railway duplications, but also to large alterations to stations, etc. The bill went not only to the very foundation of the Railway Act, but to the principle of independent control. Delay in duplica tion work was due to a shortage of labor and was accentuated by the large number of new lines.
