A MODERN GARAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 9 January 1912
A MODERN GARAGE. The equipment of the modern motor garage means money now-a\x=req-\ days, and a visit to the establishment of Messrs Summers and Peppercorn, in Rankin-street, "whose new premises are approaching completion, is sufficient demonstration of the fact. The erection of the whole of the engineering plant, which includes a complete electric lighting apparatus. is now concluded, and only waits the completion of the building before getting into full swing. The formal opening of these premises, which will be celebrated in about a week's time, will mark the establishment in Forbes of one of the best equipped garages in New South Wales.

GOLF. Tho final of the tie for second prize in the November and December competition was played between Mr J. J. Flannery and Mr J. H. Hassall, on the local links on Saturday, over an eighteen hole course, the former winning by 6 up and 5 to play. Mr Flannery was in excellent form, and put up a record for the links in match play of 79 for the 18 holes—42 out and 37 in. It is really a nine-hole course, and Mr Hassall made a fine attempt in the second round to retrieve "his position by getting home in 42.
AN HONEST POLICEMAN. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 9 January 1912
HONEST POLICEMAN. "Constable Iverach is an honest man," said a thankful resident last week. It appears that whilst on beat in the early dawn of New Year's Day, the constable picked up a £ 1 note in Templar-street, neatly folded up. "A Christmas box for me," said the constable, but it was not to be, for shortly afterwards the constable saw a man in the street, evidently looking for something-. "Have you lost anything?" asked the constable. "Yes," answered the man, "a £ 1 note'that my son lost last night, and I came out early in the hope of finding it." He described how it was folded, and the description tallying, the constable handed the note over to the delighted man, who was in poor circumstances.

LIGHTNING AT PLAY. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 9 January 1912
LIGHTNING AT PLAY. During- the storm last Tuesday evening, the lightning played with vivid and terrifying rapidity on the wires in the local telephone office, and it required no small degree of courage on the part of the operator to remain at his post. A singular occurrence is related by Mr Twogood, b'y which the large glass pane of the French window at his place of business, in Lachlan-street, was shattered by lightning, probably conducted along the telephone wire over the doorway.
ANOTHER GENEROUS DONATION [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 9 January 1912

Two other kindred institutions are gainers by Messrs Edols' generosity, £50 each having also been donated to the Parkes and Condobolin hospitals.
A SWEATED SERVICE. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 9 January 1912
SWEATED SERVICE. There is 110 department in which sweating is practised more than in the post and telegraph service.' , A deputation of telegraphists waited on Mr Fraser, the Postmaster-General, last week, when it was stated that on some occasions telegraphists' had to put in 19 hours a day. The chief said he would put on additional men in the Sydney office, and was awaiting a report from the manager of telegraphs, as to whether additional officers were required. To our mind, there can only be one side to that report. There is no doubt of the necessity for additional men if F.orbes is any criterion.
