Round Camp Fire [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 31 May 1892

ME. Philip Banniman rode over to the camp next afternoon for Milligan's horse, which, he said, he would at once place in charge of Tom White-a well-known and celebrated trainer in those parts. Bauniman also brought with him a parcel of papers. " Yon chaps will be interested in a terrible murder; a woman was found buried in cement at a place called Windsor, and a man named Williams or Swanson has been arrested at Western Australia for the crime." That evening the papers were carefully read, for no news of the outside world had rcached our drovers for a couple of months. The Windsor murder created some discussion and several of the party remembered reading or hearing about remarkable crimes at various times. Milligan said that for more than one reason the so-called " Stanfield-Hall Murders," For which James Bloomfield Rush was exe cuted outside Norwich Castle in 1849 was worthy of mention, for in dramatic and pathetic features the six days' trial of this man before Mr. Baron Rolfe was...

THIRD MONTH. MAY 1. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 31 May 1892

THIRD MONTH. MAT 1. Daring the week that followpd I made bat little progress. My head troubled me greatly. I was often taken in tbe street with pecu liar sensations of giddiness; once I even fell. I dreaded tbe ideaof going to see a physician; I required tbe services of one. I bod been iinwise in getting np from my bed and com ing to London against tbe wisbeB of my pbysioian. I had been working hard since my arrival, getting but little sleep, agitating my brain too severely. I was now paying the penalty for my rashness. I at last grew so bad that I was compelled to see a doctor. He looked grave as I related to him my feel ings. " Is it serious, doctor? I inquired." "It may beoome so, unless yon are very careful," he replied. He advised absolute rest, and wrote a pre scription, I disliked tbe idea of giving op my investigations, but concluded that it was better to do so rather tban lose tbe use of my mind entirely, probably life as well.

Original Poetry. UNKNOWN. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 31 May 1892

UNKNOWN. STAT, comrade, stay, mark well the spot On which your horse has trod; Touch not the bones of one whose soul Has long been with his God. You may not mark the costly tomb, Or monumental stone, But you may see beneath yon tree Each bleached and ghastly bone. He may have been some mother's pet, Some father's pride and joy; A reckless bush adventurer; Some widow's only boy. He may have been some felon 'scaped From out of prison's gloom, To find within the lonely bush A sad and lingering doom. The horrors of that dreadful death No human tongue can tell; No human heart, within its mart, May on its terrors dwell. When quenchless thirst consumes the frame, And frenzy fills the eye, What mercy for that tortured wretch To lay him down and die. No friendly hand to close the eye, No sootmng voice to cheer: But his requiem the curlew's scream Last sounds that greet his ear. Stay, comrade, stay an instant then To doff thy cabbagetree, And offer up a prayer for him Whoever he may be. Arama...
