Fires in Forbes. MR. SWEET'S DENTAL WORK RCOM. Just after luncheon tinic on Saturday afternoon an outbreak of fire was dis covered in a weatherboard work-room at the rear of Mr. H. B.

The cause of the fire has not been defin itely ascertained, though it is thought probable that it originated from a gas jet left burning in the room.

DEATH AT CONDOBOLIN. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 31 January 1912
mo.vni AT C()M)Oi!()l,l\. The death is reported from Con (loboJin of a well known district identity in the person of Mr Patrick Byrnes. Some little time since he, was riding on horseback at Condob olin, and as the result of a fall he sustained internal injuries, as well as a broken leg, and the result was fatal, his death occurring 011 Satur day. The interment took place at Comiobolin on Sunday. The deceas ed was at one time the driver of the mail coach between Comiobolin and Forbes, and it is 011 record that 011 one occasion during flood time when his coach was wrecked he came into Forbes with the mails attached to the axle and pole of what had been a complete vehicle, and with the horses drawing that remnant of the coach. Probably no similar feat in the accomplishment of contracts to deliver inaijs stands to the credit of drivers, though many heroic deeds have made the mailmen of earlier days famous. The deceased was a brother of .Mr. "Ted" Byrnes, the present Forbes Condobolin ma...

THE TECHNICAL CLASSES. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 31 January 1912
TlilS TECHNICAL CLASSES. One of Mr. VV. E. Cook's centres of activity during his residence in Forbes as teacher of Tom's Lagoon school was in the work of the technical classes, and at the valedictory tendered to him on Thurs day night last reference was made to this fact. In his response to the felicitations Mr. Cook touched on the subject, and said he was very sorry to have to tell them that technical education in Forbes was a fail ure. " The people of Forbes, ' he said, "don't want technical education. If they did, they would send iheir children to the classes, and do all they could to further the movement. But ihe first trouble I had was that I could not get students, ana the next was that I could not get the com mittee together. And then nearly all I had to do was to sign vouchers for the payment of the caretaker and the cleaner, just to keep the tiling going." SMART MJMJXIJKV AM.) COST I'MKS AT MAXSOXS SALE.

A GREAT TROUT SEASON. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 3 February 1912
A GREAT TROUT SEASON. Mil. OltlTCHMiY 1'AIiKHli, il Well-kllOWll trout man, says:—"The present season is, I think, without doubt one of the host for Hie" past ten years. "The high winds, gales almost, pre vailing during November and the earlier part of December, moderated consider ably during the Christinas and New Year holidays, and little or no rain fell. Insect life was abundant on the rivers; both morning and evening large fish have risen and shown freely in the Thrcdbo and Snowy. Lust year I saw only one fish of any size; she scaled 5 lb when she was killed; and although 1 used many llies, I had only one good hag during three weeks' lisliing. This year I used one pattern of fly through out, and secured in one afternoon six lish, which the manager of the Kosci usko Hotel has entered in his records as totalling 21 lb. The cormorant was, 1 regret to say, as busy as ever on all the rivers: the largest Hock I saw had thirty birds in it. -In Tasmania some years ago we shot a big blac...
