TUMBARUMBA. [Newspaper Article] — The Tumut Advocate and Farmers & Settlers' Adviser — 10 November 1903
TUMBARUMBA. (From our own Correspondent.) The glorious rainfall for September and October has been such as to give promise to a magnificienfc harvest. All wheat crops in this district are from 8ft to 4ft in height. Unfortunately the abundant growth of grass and clover (especially trefoil) has had very disastrous effects on the stock grazing on the Murray River paddocks. A number of splendid bullocks have died from overgorging, or else burst open, from the gaseous effect of the herbs. Work progresses favourably at the mines, water being plentiful. The alluvial is going ahead -with a unceasing regularity. A wedding took place at the Star Hotel on Thursday last, when Mr. Charles B. Heinecke (third son of Mr. Charles Heinecke senr., of Back Creek) took unto himself a wife in the person of Miss Jane Byrne, (4th daughter of the proprietress of the Star Hotel).

Laurel and Lagoon Hills. [Newspaper Article] — The Tumut Advocate and Farmers & Settlers' Adviser — 10 November 1903
Laurel and Lagoon Hills. Beautiful spring weather prevails. The country round about here looks better for this time of the year than has been known for years. Water and grass are in abundance. Mr. Geoffrey Joyce is back here again, although the poor old man is unable to move about through an injured limb; otherwise he is hale and hearty and full of energy. Just fancy, 88 years of age. He speaks in glowing terms of the treatment he received while an inmate of the Tumut Cottage Hospital. The Laurel Hill boys played their second game of cricket at Laurel Hill on Saturday last against a Sharp's Creek team. The game was a pleasant and exciting one and resulted in a draw.

CHAPTER XXIX. THE SHADOWED HAND. , Three weeks had passed since the i evening when Barbara Steele and • Philip Langton had dined at the "Savoy, and one or two events had .happened during that time; events ■ that had served to intensify Philip's ''hatred for Hugh—if that were pos\x=req-\ sible—and to fill his soul with black .thoughts, that added to his insane longing for vengeance. He had, paid a visit to Deepdene, and matters down there had gone ..'from bad to worse with him. Xn the first place, ho discovered that •it-was quite 'true that Muriel and 'Hugh were reconciled. Perhaps reconciled '' is too tame a word to use; they were more' deeply in love •with each other than ever, and ex-' changed letters—through the medium • ofiLadv Marchmont— constantly. ^Secondly Colonel Fortescue instead ' of extending' to Philip his usual cordial /welcome, received him with marked i. coldness.
