For the Fanners. THE COLONY'S CROPS. [Newspaper Article] — The North Western Advocate and the Emu Bay Times — 6 January 1899

For the Farmers. ' .' - THE COLONY'S CROPS. The heavy rain which fell during the early part of this week was. generally speaking, a blessing to f angers, though it could hardly be called on unmixed one. The rainfall interfered greatl/ with hay and grain cutting, which had already commenced, though not to any great ex tent,-,but it will mean a gain to the colony's potato growers of thousands of pounds. The tuber had begun to show the effect of the dry, hot weather, and the moisture of the beginning of the week will rejuvenate and strengthen it. To show how dry the season has really been, though the rainfall in November was so heavy, it may be mentioned that all along the coast, from Devonport to Circular Head, waterholes, etc ,had not for many years been so low as they were last week. The hay crops ore ^ ery heavy throughout the colon} , indeed, it is believed that they are the heaviest which have been had in Tasmania's history.

A Long and Expensive Trip [Newspaper Article] — The North Western Advocate and the Emu Bay Times — 6 January 1899

A Long and Expensive * Trip. - - \ In a recent lecture given by Dr.' David Gill he demonstrated the enormous distance to Centaun, one of the fixed stars, by this somewhat novel method — 'We shall suppose that some wealthy directors, for want of outlet for their energy and capital, constructed a railway to Cen taun We shall neglect for the present the engineering difficulties — a mere, detail — and suppose them overcome and the railway open for traffic. We shall go further, and suppose that the directors have found the construction of such a railway to have been peculiarly easy, and ? that the proprietors of the inter stellar space had not been exorbitant in their terms for right of way. Therefore, with a view to encourage traffic, the directors had made the fare ? exceedingly moderate, viz.. first-class at a penny per hundred miles. Desiring to take advantage of these facilities, a gentleman, by way of- providing himself with small change for the journey, buys up the national debt o...

Notes oh Passing Events [Newspaper Article] — The North Western Advocate and the Emu Bay Times — 6 January 1899

iYotes on Passing; Events. (By Recorder.) Tho town of Devonport in particular, and the North-West Coast in general, is to bo congratulated on the advent of ' The North-Western 'Advocate,' which mado its first appearanco on Wednesday. It is but sober truth to stato that it has already been warmly welcomed and ap preciated, supplying as it does a long-felt want— viz., an impartial local journal. More particularly since June the other local paper has persistently misrepresented public opinion in the town and surround ings, and so constantly vilified those who have chosen to differ from its opinions, that it has become so largely out of touch with the majority of the residents that the publication of the 'Advocate'.' will provide a greatly desired channel of communica tion between the leading public spirits of the district and the rank and file who wish to think and act unfettered. The latest illustration of its 'kicking against the pricks' has to do with the assertion of Mr W. Aikenhea...

QUEENSLAND. THE GATTON TRAGEDY. UNRAVELLING THE CRIMES. Brisbane, Wednesday. [Newspaper Article] — The North Western Advocate and the Emu Bay Times — 6 January 1899

QUEENSLAND. ' THE GATTON TRAGEDY. . UNRAVELLINGTHE CRIMES. Brisbane, Wednesday.   The body of. Michael Murphy, one of   the victims of the Gatton tragedy, has been. exhumed. The post mortem exam- ination disclosed the fact that there was a bullet wound in the head. The bullet has since been found in the skull. Residents in the vicinity of the outrage heard two shots on the night of the tragedy, and it is regarded as certain that the first shot killed Murphy, and that the outrage and death of his unfortunate sisters followed the second shot killing the horse. The police theory is that three or four men took part in the outrages, one being station at the slip- panel leading to the scene of the outrage to give the alarm.   The Queensland Government has   u-Tl& ^n'?00 im?Bxi for informationi which will lead to the conviction of 'the | perpetrators of the murder. ? ? : ^;i«i- '
