DOUBLE-BARRELLED CONCERT. IN CALAEE HAIL. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 1 March 1912
DOUBLE-BARRELLED CONCERT. IN CALAEE HAIL. The little church at Daroobalgie resembles Oliver Goldsmith's piece of furniture, which was a bed by night, a chest of drawers b'y day, in that it is now a Presbyterian Church, and: anon a Methodist Church. • That's1 why we call the concert which took place in the Calare Hall on Wednesday night, in aid of. this-church, a double-barrelled concert. - It was a splendid turn-out. . The night was fine, the-hall filled, and the programme a good one; though so l&lt;?ng that singers were not permitted to respond to recalls, of which the audience demanded several. Mr J.

A RENOWHED ILLUSIONIST. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 1 March 1912
A RENOWHED ILLUSIONIST. The "Daily Telegraph," in commenting upon Nicola's phenomenal opening in Sydney recently, said "Nicola, the magician, works at the rate of a marvel'a minute. He exemplifies the celerity of Yankeedom, neve.r wasting a second, but piling on illusion after illusion, and pattering along at a furious rate.' The Palace Theatre was packed, and the management were turning money away long before the performance started last night. Nicola- has been a master magician in the United States for many years, and his fame has evidently preceded him. The audience, were in sympathy with the illusionist from the start, for he impressed them by his businesslike manner, and quiet, unforced humour drew the house. Nicola employs a great deal of apparatus. Curiously designed boxes are whirled on to the stage, attendants get into them, disappear, and materialise in the last place the audience expects to see them. Cabinets are rushed upon the stage, and weird events happen to suggest a...

ABOUT A HORSE. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 5 March 1912
. ABOUT A HORSE. ' Thomas Wright v. Charles Nolan, , and Catherine Bathgate v. Charles Nolani claim for detention .of a horse. These cases arose out of the prosecution recently of one Robert Thomas 'Haynes, for stealing a horse from the premises of Catherine Bathgate at N&rth Hill. The evidence taken in the police court showed that Catherine Bathgate, alleged that the horse had been given, to her by Thomas Wright. The accused Haynes pleaded that Wright had given him authority to take the horse. As a result of the prosecution of Haynes, the police took possession of the horse, and Haynes was committed for trial, but the Attorney-General filed no bill; and the two actions above are obviously taken against Sub-Inspector. Nolan, of the police, to determine ownership of the animal. Mr D. J. Moloney appeared for Wright, Mr R. id. B. Reymond for Catherine Bathgate, and Mr J. Robin\x=req-\ osn for the defendant. . Defendant put in an interpleader in the case of Wright v. Nolan, and ...
