Deluge in Goulburn. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 22 January 1904
Deluge in Goulburn. (From a correspondent.) WEDNESDAY was a day which Goulburn will - not forget. At about half-past twelve there came a storm the like of wh ch I never saw in my life. The rain camo down like a waterspout, and in no time the streets were one vast expans+ of w ter. To give you an idea of the rapidity with which it fell, I may say that the reading of the official guage was 430 points in about two and a half hours The wind for a time blew strong, and gave an idea that the houses wero on fire, as is carried the rain round the corners in misty1 or rather smoke-like, blinding sheets. The gutters could not carry off the water by half, and the result was that almost every place in the main street (Auburn-street) had a sluicing-out that it wi I take some time to get over. At the Royal Hotel the water throughout the whole house was said to be knee-deep, while at Charles Rogers & 4o.'s there is said to be enough pumping to keep a double-barreled Tangyc pump going fora ...

Mr. Garraway appeared on the behalf of defendant. Plea, Not Guilty. (The evidence given was really corrobora tive of that given at the Coronial Enquiry, held a few days after the date above mention- ed and a full report of which has already been published in these columns. The fol- lowing, therefore, is merely a precis of the evidence adduced before the Police Court).

Sad Poisoning Case [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 22 January 1904
Sad Poisoning Case &nbsp; &nbsp; On Monday evening at Gilgandra a terrible mistake happened,. and resulted in the death of a child aged two and a half years. Mr. George Collison had mixed some honey and sulphur in a saucer to give to his two children The younger one would not take it, but the elder took a teaspoonful of the mixture to coax the little one to take it. The father also took some himself. A short while after. wards the whole three of them began to vomit and show signs of poisoning. Medical aid was summoned, but the younger child -died at half past nine. The oldest boy is still very bad, but Mr. Collison is completely out of danger:. On investigation it was found that the " sulphur" was sheep dipping pow- der that was given to Mrs. Collison by the wife of Senior-constable Berry to fumigate the house owing to the typhoid fever scare. Mrs. Collison had always thought it. was sulphur, and had burnt it, but had never taken any inwardly. Many Japanesa spies hav...
Garden and Field Calendar for January, 1904. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 26 January 1904
Garden and Field Calendar for January, 1904. -o S(B, A.. Lansdowne, Seedsman, Goulburn ) THE soil is sufficiently moist for Oropping and large areas of winter fodder plants should be sown at once. Good supplies of fodder roots and green lood will prove valuable and superior to hay, etc., for teeding, especially for dairy purposes. Mangels and Swedes should be largely sown, also Hungarian millet, which is grand for hay or green feed and also for ensilage, mixed with green corn or sorghum.- A bag of No. 2 or 3 Shirley's manure to an acre will greatly stimulate green crops. It is no use to try to grow crops without feeding them. If the l?nd is good run the cariifier deeply over it after taking off hay, etc., and sow millet or some seed, and there will be a good return.- We again urge sowing in rows to admit of thinning and cultivation between crops. The weather will remain stot my and unsettled Plenty of rain is likely, some strong winds, and grrat heat, but a good deal of cool sea. br...

CHAPTER V. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 26 January 1904
OHAPTER V. Throughout the night of her brother's mishap Barbara,' who slept little, made soft footed journeys across the landing to the landing to the door of Hubert's room, where Ketton was- watching with the stranger. The reports which Barbara received from the parlourmaid were reassuring. Hubert had recovered from the state, of collapse in which he had returned home, but he was feverish and: somewhat drowsy. He .was however no worse than was to be expected considered the violence of his fall, and neither J-etton nor the stranger doubted his ultimate recovery, which was retarded only by the state of his mind. It was open to question however whether the accident had not done him more good than harm, as he was for the most part too drowsy for his mental suffering to be as acute as before. Towards morning Barbara fell into a sound sleep, and when she rose, a little before eight she learned that the stranger had gone away leaving a message to the effect thathe would come again in an h...
The Municipal Election. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 26 January 1904
Thel ml nicipal lectiol. NoMurATrONS for the Municipal Election, to be held on Saturday week, closed yesterday. The three retiring aldermen (Blackall, Knox, andDowney) are re-nominated, but, unlike last year, there is opposition threatezied. Mr.. Alec. McPherson, of the Commercial Hotel,. is also running in the: field. The ratepayers may evince soMl'? '-'?rprise ýkzt.. this nomination because of the quiescence generally shown by this candidate regarding municipal affairs. But should MIr. McPher son not withdraw, and he informs us that his intentions are sincere, we have io hesitation in expressing an opinion that he will be successful, and upon being' returned the change will be heralded with satisfaction ; for although Mr. McPherson has not pre viously exhibited a keen interest in municipal matters, he being a property owner, will, doubtless, have the interest of the Borough at heart. That a change in the management of this municipality is opportune goes with out saying, and at the...

LoNDox, January 21. -A report from Ber lin states that Russia is appealing to the Powers to avert war between herself and Japan.

A Church Choir on Strike. THE strike among the coal.miners at Outtrim which has dragged on for nearly a year, and is now almost dead, owing to the introduotion of free labourers on weekly wages, entered on a-new development on Sunday last, when the choir of the Outtrim Methodist Church also went out on strike. A number of free labourers attend this church, ;and the fact.is. resented by a few strikers, who are still adherents. As people were proceeding thither on Sunday evening, the o·hir could be seen raneed on the other side of the street near the. Presbyterian Church, which they subse queuly entered, leaving their own without a choir. The Rev. R. S Joyce conducted the coagregation consisting of some 15 free labourers and eigh strikers. After the service the strikers waited on the minister, and protested against his paying so much atten tion'to the free labourers when they attend the church, and declared that he was giving them mdre attention than the old hands, who had helped to b...
