SOMALI TROUBLE. &nbsp; &nbsp; MULLA PLANS A RAID. BRITISH EXPEDITION. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; LONDON, Friday. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; The "Evening News" states that &nbsp; &nbsp; the Imperial Government is contem- plating sending a strong Indian mili- tary expedition to Somaliland in March.

A GRUESOME STORY. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 6 January 1914
A GRUESOME STORY. A son of an Iroquois half-breed went out one day with other Indians to run buffalo along the Red River. But he never returned. They found his horse and gun and knife, but could not find the man. About a year later, as the Indians were hunting in another part of the country, a buffalo cow was seen, which had something peculiar on her head. They chased and killed her, and found that her singular head ornament was the pelvis of a man, one of her horns having pierced the thin part of the bone, which was wedged on so tightly that they could scarcely get it off. Much of the hair on the head, neck, and shoulders of the cow was worn off short, and on the side on which the bone was, the hair looked new, as if it had been worn off the skin, and was beginning to grow out again. It is supposed that this bone was part of the missing half-breed, who had been hooked by the cow and car- ried about on her head until his body fell to pieces.
ENTANGLED IN WIRE FENCE. DEATH FROM SUFFOCATION. AVOCA, Saturday. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 6 January 1914
ENTANGLED IN WIRE FENCE. DEATH FROM SUFFOCATION. AVOCA, Saturday. The death of Mr A. Henderson, in the Glenaroua district, by being caught in a wire fence and hanging suspended for two days and nights, has been suc- ceeded by the death of Mr James Bat- ehelor, aged 73, one of the oldest residents of Avoca, in almost exactly similar circumstances. Mr Batchelor, &nbsp; while returning home last-night, took a short cut, which rendered it necessary for him to get through a wire fence. Evidently one leg became entangled and, while Mr Batchelor was struggling to extricate himself, the other leg was also caught in such a manner as to render escape impossible. He continu- ed to struggle, and eventually died from suffocation. His body was dis- covered in the fence this afternoon by Mr Larkins. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Deceased had been poundkeeper at Avoca for many years. He succeeded his father, who took charge of the pound in the very early days of Vic- toria. H...

.. ININGl INTELISGENCE .: Yesterday's "Argus" says :-The development of the New Langi Logan mine, Ararat, is being closely watched now, as the opening up of this import ant lead means so much to the Ararat field and to the mining industry in Victoria generally. First thing this year the company. was to start a .rise to the wash from midway in the branch reef drive which was running south west from the main drive towards the old shafts, at a point- between the Nos. 30 and 31 bores. -Some of the men not having returndd to work after the holidays, delayed a start being made with the rise on -fonday afternoon, but it was expected that the work would be commenced either Monday night or. early on Tuesday morning.

Therefore, No. 39 bore was evidently on the western slope o...
