LIFE PICTURES. VIVID AND REALISTIC. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 12 January 1912
LIFE PICTURES. VIVID AND REALISTIC. The moving pictures shown b'y Mr P. H. Brook, in the Town Hall on Wednesday night, prove that he has one of the most up-to-date machines, and as an entrepreneur he has a happy knack of choosing his subjects. There was a good attendance, and if the same patronage is extended in the future, there will certainly be an enlargement of the programme, for Mi Brook is nothing if not enterprising. His big venture of a music hall, to cost £3000, in Cross-street, is sufficient proof of this. Wednesday night's programme satisfied the most fastidious taste, and the applause of the audience pronounced its excellence. The first film, Italian gun practice, was educative and entertaining, and showed bad for the Turk In tlie Tripolitan war. "Man to Man," tlie next film, depicted the innate characteristics of the criminal and the good that underlies the evil In all natures. "The Wonderful Eye" and "Ma goes to work" were of the comic element, that made the programme ...

COMEDY FOR FORBES. A BACHELOR'S HONEYMOON. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 12 January 1912
COMEDY FOR FORBES. BACHELOR'S HONEYMOON. On Monday and Tuesday next, Messrs Reginald Wykeham and Geo. H. Barnes' new company of comedians will make their appearance before the public of Forbes. They come here with a city reputation, and from all accounts we are in for a regular treat in the way of musical, farcical comedy. The opening production on Monday night will be the greatest of laughter makers, "A Bachelor's Honeymoon," which most of us have heard about. It was a very big success in both Melbourne and Sydney, and has been played with splendid results all over the English speaking world. There is not a dull moment in the play from start to finish; it is full of very bright and catchy musical gems, and is to be staged in the same up-to-date and complete manner as characterised its production in the mother city. On Tuesday, January 16th, another very clever farcical musical comedy, "A Lovely Liar," will be staged, and from what we can gather, it is every bit as funny as "A Bache...

THE DIGNITY OF LABOR. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 12 January 1912
THE DIGNITY OF LABOR. What is there more healthful and beneficial both to the individual and to the community than honest labor? Not labor in the restricted sense in which it is frequently applied, but labor in its widest and most liberal interpretation, when man put forward his best efforts to advance his own interests, and 'necessarily, therefore, benefits the community at the same time. Whether it is the worker on the land in its various branches of husbandry and of dairying, wheat growing, sheep and cattle raising, and so on, or whether it is the worker under the land, extracting from hidden depths the boundless riches of mother earth, in the shape of wool, iron, gold, silver, and so on, the fruits and profits of all this labor enriches the entire community For the man on the land we supply the famous "Alfa-Laval" Cream Separators and L-K-G Milking Machines, Refrigerating and Irrigating Machinery, suitable appliances for butter factories and dairy farms.

PARKES DISTRICT. LAST YEAE'S FIGURES. In the Parkes centre, the area under 'wheat last year was about 50,000 acres. Of this, an area of about 10,000 acres was cut for hay. Including the total failures, and the area cut for hay, the crop is expected to average 6 bushels to the acre, or 300.000 bushels. Some authorities estimate the yield to be considerably higher. Besides this area, about 1200 acres were sown with oats. The live stock numbered 3350 horses, 1181 milch cows, 169.983 sheep, and 977 pigs. In the Bogan Gate centre, the area under wheat was about 3000 acres, giving an average of 6 bushels, or about 18,000 bushels.

AGRICULTURAL & PASTORAL NOTES. FOR THE MAN ON THE LAND RUST IN WHEAT. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 12 January 1912
AGRICULTURAL & PASTORAL NOTES. FOR THE MAN ON THE LAND (Issued by the Department of Agriculture). rust" in wheat. ■ ". Reports from the State Experiment tParms throughout the State, relative to the liability of the different kinds of wheat to rust are interesting. The Manager of the Bathurst State Farm (Mr Peacock) points out that during the last few years rust in wheat has not been general, and the losses from this cause have been confined to certain districts. When seasons with a rainfall above the normal return a repetition of the serious losses from rusty wheat is predicted, especially with such a rust\x=req-\ liable wheat as Federation, which is gaining so much favor among farmers. The comparative immunity from this disease during the past ten years has not conduced to caution in the choice of rust-resistant or rust-proof varieties. While no district can claim to be immune from rust, some districts are more prone to the disease than others. The coastal lands are more su...

SPORTING MEMS. (By Musqueton). The New Years Day meeting of the Orange Jockey Club showed a credit balance of £315/18/2. The prize money at the annual meeting on March 1 and 2, will be about £ 600. The W.D.R.xi. has received an application from the Cowra Picnic Race lub to grant dates for their annual event, but their dates will clash with Peak Hill, and the Cowra secretary has been written to, and asked to arrange matters. The date of the Goolagong J.C. race, meeting has been altered, so as to-allow a day's interval between it and Canowindra race meeting.

GRENFELL. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 12 January 1912
GRENFELL. The rainfall at .Grenfell last year totalled "25.74 inches. The average rainfall at Grenfell for the past 24 years is 24.61 inches. Mr Tra'ynor, who ran second in the principal footrace on Monday last, remarked after the event that he was 46 years of age, and had had both legs broken. Mr J. Wright, who lias taken up the Young—Grenfell mail contract from the beginning of the year, had a stroke of bad luck on Sunday. In attempting to get a horse over the crossing after the storm, the bridge having been washed away in the previous flood, the current was too strong, and drowned the animal. Mr Wright was rescued by the Messrs Joyce with difficulty, and the horse was washed down the creek, and hung up in a tree on Mr Garry's paddock, three miles away, where a large dam had been made by the water. Major Claude Smith, of Nandillyan, has' purchased the right of 30,000 acres " of leased land from Mr A. H. Grimm, in the Grenfell district. The sale was; effected by Messrs Betts Bros.,...
PARKES. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 12 January 1912
PARKES. Mr E.> Bullock has disposed of his stationer's business to Mr A. M'Gre\x=req-\ gor, of the Deep Lead Public School. A strike occurred, during the week, among the men handling wheat at the railway station. A settlement was effected, apparently satisfactory to both sides. The men get 1/6 per hour for eight hours, and 2/\x=req-\ per hour overtime. The many friends of the Rev. R. J. Thomas will be sorry to hear that he has, on medical advice, gone to Sydney to consult a specialist. He has been induced to enter a Mental Hospital, where he is now undergo ing treatment. Rev. F. R. Swyny has been appointed as a supply for the next three months. As an evidence of the continued and growing prosperity of Parkes during the past few years, it may be remarked that all the local churches are free from the incubus of debt.
CANOWINDRA. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 12 January 1912
CANOWINDRA. We regret to learn that Mr S. Tucker, of Canowindra, is at present an inmate of the Cowra Hospital. We hope to hear of his early recovery. Miss Gallagher, of Cargo, successfully underwent an operation at Grantham Private Hospital, Canowin\x=req-\ dra, on Wednesday last. We are pleased to hear that she is progressing favorably. Mr A. Wilson, of "Campsie," near Canowindra, is not too well pleased with a party of "picnickers" who went through his property lately. They left a gate open, which allowed a flock of 1000 sheep to get in on a good crop of lucerne, and as a result 51 ewes died from the effects of overfeeding. Mr Wilson had refused 11/ per head for these ewes. Recently he also had a ram valued at £3/3/- and other sheep, killed by dogs.

The Great Success attained by our Tali fori rag Department is the perfect fit, cut and style, and the great wearing ^capacity of suits turned out by Leyne and Co. Value. Webster tells us is the " amount obtainable for a thing," and when that thing happens to be your hard cash, it behoves you to procure the best value possible. If Webster had been a slangy Australian he may have said that the act of obtaining value was the act of " getting a run for your money." Everybody likes to"get their-* money's worth when'they buy-a thing.. We know of nothing more annoying than to buy an article and to find out afterwards that we have paid . too much for it.

WESTERN DISTRICT NEWS. PARS CRIBBED FROM OUR EXCHANGES. YOUNG. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 12 January 1912
WESTERN DISTRICT NEWS. PARS CRIBBED FROM OUR EXCHANGES. YOUNG. With the exception of a few late paddocks, the wheat is all off now. Notwithstanding the somewhat erratic nature of the weather, the season has turned out a fairly good one. The exceptions that stand out prominently are those which suffered from floods. The first floods, during last month, did very serious damage and '-were general. But last Sunday's storm, though confined to a narrow strip, was very severe on the crops in its track. One farmer calculates his loss at about £800; two others at about half that amount, and a number of others also suffered. On some holdings the fences and dams had been repaired after the first storm, and when the second came along it undid all the work. The wheat is very much lighter on the average than last season, but, "contrary to expectations, not a great deal of it is bleached. The orchards suffered very considerably from both storms, owing to soil washing. The dates for the Young Quart...
COWRA. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 12 January 1912
COWKA. Mr C. W. Phillips, of Canimbla, via Cowra, gives the following experience in preventing the maggot fly amongst his sheep—700 ewes and hoggets were dressed last April after crutching, and between that date and shearing time in September only two sheep have been struck by the fly. At the same time, out of 250 wethers and dry ewes that were crutched, but had no fly dressing put on them, 20 were blown during the same period; proportionately, this is a decrease from 80 per 1000 to 3 per 1000, and shows a very satisfactory result in combating with the fly trouble. The average is really much better, as wethers are not so liable to be struck as ewes and hoggets. The dressing used was Barcanite, which Mr Phillips also found satisfactory for- putting on lambs' tails after marking, and for dressing sheep that had been struck by the fly.
WELLINGTON. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 12 January 1912
WELLINGTON. The police have been collecting information as to the population of the town of Wellington. Last year the total population was 4449, this year 4587, an increase of 138. There was an increase of four alien's. Last year the municipality contained 789 houses, and this year there are 831, an increase of 42. Mr Purcell, of Werris Creek, visited Wellington and Dubbo to ascertain the attitude of both towns re the cross-country line to Werris Creek. He learnt at a meeting at Wellington that the people of that district favor the decentralisation proposal, Maryvale to Muswellbrook. At Dubbo he was assured by members of the Progress Association that the Dubbo people are still as keen as ever on the original proposal, Dubbo-Wer\x=req-\ ris Creek.
WARREN. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 12 January 1912
WARREN. The proposal to institute a sewerage scheme at Dubbo, and run the sewage into the Macquarie River, is not meeting with favor at Warren. At last meeting of the Warren Council, it was decided to write to the Department of Works protesting against the scheme, which would have the effect of polluting the stream. The Warren P. and A. Association is in a bad way, and unless the pub-' lie respond liberally when the next canvass for funds is made the annual show will probably fade out of existence. It is to be hoped that such a dire catastrophe will be averted by the residents "dipping south" when the collectors happen along.
MOLONG. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 12 January 1912
MOLONG. A peculiar case came under the notice of Dr. Colvin last week. A valuable drauglit horse, belonging to Mr James Barrett, of Garra, was staked near the shoulder with a hook, and immediately commenced to swell all over in an amazing manner. The doctor found that from its nose to its hoofs the hores had swollen to almost twice its normal size. Apparently wind had got in between the flesh and the skin, and blown it out like a football. When Dr. Colvin tapped the animal in several places the wind escaped with a hiss. The doctor says it is the first case of its kind that he has met with in connection with animals, though he had met with similar cases in human beings.
