A LOVELY LIAR. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 16 January 1912
LOVELY LIAR. To-night, this really excellent company will appear for the first time in Forbes in the latest musical, farcical success,' "A Lovely Liar," -which has enjoyed an interrupted run of popularity in London and New York extending considerably over a year. So pronounced lias 'been the success of this excruciatingly funny comedy in other towns, that hundreds have been nightly turned away. The piece is abounding in ludicrous situations, and the musical interpolations are of an excellent order. Mr Wykeham, Miss Preston, and the other members of this fine combination, are all congenially cast. > The play hinges on a simple fib told by a delinquent husband, who, through a mishap in a London tubula railway, is compelled t.n srmnrl the nisht in a carriage with- an unknown lady. The repairs are effected, and on. the husband re\x=req-\ turning.home in the morning, he invents the ready lie that he lost the last train, and spent the night with his friends, the Smiths, at Pickleton.

A VISIT TO GAYWARD'S. AN OASIS IN THE DESERT. A Man's Work. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 16 January 1912
H VISIT TO GfiYWIflRD'S. AN. OASIS IN THE DESERT. A Man's Work. There is poetry in a vineyard. All i the most glorious rhapsodies that have ever been poured out by poets have their acme of sentiment and romance in the juice of the grape. Old Biblical Solomon attributed all the pitfalls of life to wine and woman. But Solomon was a satiated philosopher, and his utterances, and not over-wise aphorisms were very often the result of satiety, whilst some of his injunctions were very foolish, and were born of an overweening conceit of himself, fostered by the admiration of 300 concubines. The undisguised admiration of 300 women is enough to turn any man's head. It was in one of his moments of mental aberration that he enjoined us to go to the ant for wisdom. Now, if there is anything more foolish than an ant lumbering a heavy load across rough country, with apparently no objective, we would like to see it. We don't go too much on Solomon stock; we think it's over.boomed, and that over-accr...
THE RABBIT COURT. ALL HANDS FINED. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 16 January 1912
THE RABBIT COURT. ALL HANDS FINED. /ft the ■ police court this morning, most of the summons cases' were against landholders, for negleuLiug lu destroy rabbits on their holdings. This may not be the, legal jargon, but that's what the defendants " were fined for; and that is all-sufficient. The term "defendants"; is a bit of--a misnomer, because there was no attempt at defence, though-there was always an attempt at palliation.\x=req-\ The whole of tlie nine-aldermen of the Forbes Municipal Council' were prosecuted by the P.P. Board individually, and the Mayor (Alderman J. lMwards) was made the scapegoat. Stock Inspector Dowling' did not press the charge, because lie had inspected the work done by the Mayor, as .chronicled in our last issue, arid had, in the language of the Creator, as related in Genesis, pronounced it to be good. The Mayor was fined £1, with 3/- costs, and the remainder of the aldermen were let off with costs alone. The other cases in which each defendant was fined £2...

GENUINE FUN, "A BACHELOR'S HONEYMOON." [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 16 January 1912
GENUINE FUN, BACHELOR'S HONEYMOON;" The people of Forbes apparently did not realise that there was appear-: ing here last night a high-class com\x=req-\ edy^ company in one of the cleverest and most excruciatingly funny farcical comedies that have ever been written. Had they done so, the town hall would, have been packed to the doors,- and hundreds could not have found admission. As it was, , the hall was only fairly comfortably filled, but those who attended were the: lucky ones. "A bachelor's honeymoon" is about, as screamingly-funny a play as could be - imagined: It is i just one sequence of infinitely laugh-, i able situations, and the man • who I couldn't fall in with the delightful i fun of the whole thing ought/to be re-made. It is a clever play, too, the ingenuity of the tangled , skein which the players have to unravel being something worth while. The cleverest play in the world,- in indifferent hands, would be a .blank and a failure, but last night's .performance of. "A. b...
