"NICOLA." [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 5 March 1912

"NICOLA." "Nicola," the great and mystifying worker of wonders, played a two nights' season in Forbes, commencing on Saturday. The fame of his performance on Saturday night spread so readily that the big town hall hardly had seating ■ accommodation for. the crowds who besieged it on Monday night, and the great entertainer could not have been paid a better compliment. The entertainment is all that is claimed for it, and more,-,- providing two or three hours: of undiluted fun and mystery. An exceedingly clever performance it is, by exceedingly clever people. Not.a single item mars the programme,, each "turn" : being full of art and merit. The best show of its kind ever seen in Forbes, we may with every , truth stamp it, and it/is our-only regret that the demands on our space to-day prevent our: giving it: a very much fuller notice.

EXCEPTIONAL RAIN. 6¼ INCHES IN 70 MINUTES. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 5 March 1912

EXCEPTIONAL RAIN. 6£ INCHES IN 70 MINUTES. Details of last week's heavy rain that are coming to hand, show that in places the fall- was phenomenally heavy. This was particularly the case at Mr W. H. Ellis', ''Inverell Avenue," Cowra Road, where, we are informed, the extraordinary record of six and a quarter inches was made in an hour and ten minutes. Of course, such a heavy fall-was bound to do damage, and we are sorry to say that Mr Ellis has-no reason to think-of it with feelings of gratitude. The soil of acres upon acres of his fallowed land was washed away, as also some miles of fencing, the waterways running like raging torrents. Another to suffer was Mr Hugh Gilmartin, \vho has not yet given delivery of "Mafeking," and where there was a lot of damage done by the storm waters. A newly constructed dam was washed away, and a lpt of fencing suffered the same fate.

THE FREEZING WORKS. CLOSING DOWN ON SHEEP. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 5 March 1912

THE FREEZING WORKS. CLOSING DOWN ON SHEEP. At a meeting of the Freezing Works on Saturday, it was decided to refuse sheep for treatment from that\x=req-\ date until further notice. .This step was. taken, we understand, owing to the indifferent and uncertain supply, which meant that the (sompany had to have butchers and other workmen on hand when, very often, there was not sufficient for them to do, and, as everyone knows—it being a plain business axiom—tbfj e is no one philantliropically enough inclined these days to employ men for the sheer pleasure of employing them.. There are one or two lots on their way to the works, which will, of course, be treated, but after they have been put through, sis stated above, no more sheep will bs taken until • further-notice. Meantime the company will devote itself to rabbits and ice. The latter is just on the point of running out, but the rabbit season is only about to commence, and the company anticipates big operations in that direction during...
