Death of Mrs. H. Percy, [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 2 March 1898
Death of Mrs. H. Percy, Just as we were going to press on Friday night word reached u& that Mrs, Harriet Percy, proprietress of the Percy Hotel, was seriously ill, and our issue of Saturday intimated this fact; but within a couple of hours the worst fears were realised, and it is now our painful duty to chronicle the death of that well-known and estimable lady. The end was indeed so sudden that people could not realise the sad tidings, and a gloom was cast over the town, Everywhere on Saturday there were indications of general regret and sympathy with the bereaved family. Mrs. Percy was about as usual piloting the affairs of the hotel on Wednesday, and on Thursdaj, for the first time, she had to give in, and seek medical aid. Drs. Read and Bowman were soon in attendance, but they saw at once that her condition was serious, and that her long and devoled atten tion to busiuess had thoroughly worn her out. As she did not rally, the members of her family were sum moned, and alth...

How to Help the Local Paper. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 5 March 1898
How to Help the Local Paper. J You can aid your newspaper greatly by giving the .local paper your general printing; if you do not feel able to run an advertisement, ■ surely you can af ford, to give the newspaper your cards, 'dodgers, billheads, envelopes, and all business printing - to execute. The newspaper man needs it,"'and it: helps to pay the thousand and one free no tices he gives yon and vour town ; but don't give it "to the travelling canvasser who can give you no such return, and is spending neither time, 'money, nor brains in helping you to'build up your district. The time may come when a'newspaper may live simply .upon the revenue derived from the subscriptions and advertisements,, but no ordinary newspaper in any .ordinary town can exist without auxiliary support derived from general printing. Therefore,if you want-a good newspaper—one that will still help your town—give it all your printing.
