The cool change, however, was more than balanced by the high wind which prevailed all day.

A BEAUTIFUL SUNSETEFFECT [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 10 February 1912
A KKAUTll riv SUX.SKT ISKI'JBOT Constable J, 0. Jenkinson ob served on Monday evening, the 5th inst... a beautiful and unique effect on the setting sun between G.45 p.ni and 7 p.m., caused by the upper portion of the atmosphere being ueavily charged with smoke, which probably came from the South Aus tralian and Victorian bush fires raging tliore, which caused the sun to assume at first a bright red color, which gradualy deepened to a very dark red, till eventually it. became invisible altogether. At the same time there were several very narrow layers of eirro-strata clouds, perfectly horizontal, and parallel to each other, and so close to each other that two and sometimes three extended right across the sun's disc at the same time as it passed be hind them, and gave a most remark able reproduction on a large scale of Jupiter and his belts (save t.lie sun's colour, of course), and at limes also small particles and wisps of cloud appearing with them made it more than ever like beautif...

CRICKET. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 10 February 1912
CltlOKlSX. The recently-concluded Sheffield Shield competition was spoilt by this season's superabundance of big ger cricket, and in tho last match, by the disablement, at a critical time of Armstrong and Matthews and al ways by the absence of Ransford. The retention of the Shield by N.S.W. is satisfactory in this State, but Victoria had a big handicap and ahowed pluck and determination In saving an innings defeat in the last match and getting three of the oth ers out a second time. That display of grit under difficulties was one of the features of the soaaon's big cricket. Similarly handicapped, tho Vic torians could not bo cxpected to do much against the Englishmen, who only &lt;beat them in the first match by &lt;iy runs. Viewing the position from all points, it is clear that England haa the best prospects of winning tho triangular ' tournament this year. Whether slio will retain supremacy wlien some Australian "permanenc ies" have been weeded out, or liavo at las...
