Heavy Downpour. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 22 April 1911
Heavy Downpour. Oil Sunday afternoon a thunderstorm passed over the town and neighbourhood . which was accompanied by very heavy rain. In the vicinity of Wattamondara and Morongla there was a phenomenal fall of hail about the same time, hail stones of an extraordinary size to the depth of a couple of feet being banked up-in several places. Pipeclay Creek came down a seething torrent and washed down about thirty chains of fencing -on Mr. T. Drummond's pro- 1 perty. Morongla Croek was also over j its banks in many places. It is estimated 1 that between hail and rain tho fall in the localities mentioned must have been ( fully five inches. The partial nature of the downpour may bo gathered from the ! fact that at Jorula tho guage regis tered 40 points, whilst at Mr. Street's j rosidenco, less than half, a mile away, ! the registration was only 10 points. As J a result of the fall ploughing in tho favoured localities is being prosecuted with renewod vigor.

Sporting. Cricket. THE TARAGALA CUP. COWRA v. BATHURST. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 22 April 1911
Sporting. » ? f Cricket. THE TARAGALA CUP. OOWRA v. BATHURST. A team of Cowraites made .an in effectual effort to wrest the Taragala Oup from the Bathuretians on Good Friday on the latter's wicket. The Oowra captain . won the toss and'com mitted an error in deciding to send the home team to the wickets. With three wickets down for 13 the prospects of the Oowra men were cheering. Through wretched fielding 89 was recorded for the fourth wicket, and thenceforward the simplest catches were dropped in the most discouraging fashion in various parts of the field, and as a result a team that should have been disposed of for about 100 runs put up a Bcore of 251. The only players on the Cowra side who reached double figures were (24), Fr&lt;?d. Byrnes (26), Collings (12), and Tom Nevvham (17), the last wicket falling when 99 had been recorded, or 152 to the bed, Seabrook, who was evidently quite at home on the turf wicket, was playing the bowling with great confi dence when he was nnf...
The Referenda Issue. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 22 April 1911
The Referenda Issue. On April 26th, every elector who values his or her franchise will be faced with the duty of answering the two Referenda questions set out in an advertisement in anothar column of this paper. Those ques tions-which are stated substantially as they will apperr on the ballot papers-are not . self-explanatory, it is presumed that the elector who wishes to give an intelligent vote will enter the polling booth with a knowledge, of what both the "Legisla tive Powers" Constitutional Altera tion, and the "Monopolies" Constitu tional Alteration, mean. ^ Unless there is that prior knowledge, the vote must be cast blindly or ignorant ly. Now, the exact scope of the changes which the amendments would effect in regard lo the Govern ment of the Commonwealth and the Government of the State, is a matter which, probably, no two persons could agree. The possibilities are many. Bat on these points there J can be no dispute. The Legislative Powers Alteration, for instance, would giv...
