DEATH OF THE REV. E. W. F. HARTMANN. [Newspaper Article] — The Maffra Spectator — 9 March 1882

DEATH OF THE REV. E. W. F. HARTMANN.     News was received in Bairnsdale on   Saturday evening that a horse belonging to the Rev. E. W. F. Hartmann, Church of England minister of that town, had been found,with saddle and bridle on, on the bank of the Mitchell River, at the Glenaladale crossing and that Mr. Hartmann's hat had been dis- covered floating down the stream. 'The gravest fears were entertained that Mr. Hartmann had met with an untimely death, and a search party went out to look for his body, which was found in the river on Sunday aiftrnoon and brought on a periodical visit to Dargo, where he was to have preached on Sunday. it is supposed that the reverend gentle- man mistook the crossilng, and instead of taking the crossing at the usual place, he got too high up, and into deep water. Traces were found of the deceased having ridden up and down the bank of the river, evidently doubtful as to the locality of the crossing-place. He seemed...

Instructions for Saving Drowning Persons by Swimming to their Relief. [Newspaper Article] — The Maffra Spectator — 16 March 1882

Instructionp for. Saving Drowning Persons by Swimming to their Relief.: Ist; When' you' approach a person drowning in the water assure him, in a loud and firm voice, that he is safe. 2nd.. Before jumping in to save him, divest yourself as far and as quickly as possible of all clothes; tear them if necessary, but if there is nbt time, loose at all events the foot of your drawers if they are tied, as, if you do not do so, they fill with water and drag you. 3rd. On swimming to a person in the sea, if he be struggling, do not seize him then, but keep off for a few seconds, till he gets a mouthful or two; for it is sheer madness to take hold of a man when he is struggling in the water, and if you do, you run a great risk. 4th., Then get close to him and take fast hold of the hair of his head, turn him as quickly as possible on to his hack, give him a sudden pull, and this will cause him to float; then throw yourself on your hack also, and swim for the shore, both hands having hold of his...
