Sulky Accident. [Newspaper Article] — Molong Argus — 10 October 1902

Sultty Accident. — o — While travelling to Boree on Sunday evening last from Derowie, in company with Mr. H. E. J. Holt* Mr. Hughes, manager of the Commercial Bank, . met with what might have proved a serious accident. It appears that when a short distance from Cudal, Mr. # Holt suddenly reined in the horse to avoid a rut in the road, and the subject of this mishap having 111s attention centred on some oiuer worldly matter was unaware of this. However, the upshot was that he was thrown violently from the vehicle oh to the road, and was for a time rendered unconscious. Mr. Holt took speedy means of getting Mr. Hughes to Boree where he received every attention from Mr. L. N. Smith and his good wife, and we learn that he is now little the worse for his experience, although the runner-up in the recent Ping Pong Tournament has a noticeable limp in his gait.

The Federal Capital. To the Editor of the Akous. j ' The verdict of 12 good meu aud true.' ? Slit, — Seeing the responsibility of de ciding upou the Federal Capital site is (by the Commonwealth Government) to be placed on the shoulders of a board of experts, I wish to suggest, to all whom it concerns, that the said board be consti tuted a jury of 12 — two of whom shall be elected by each of ihe six States by a plebicite vote of the same franchise as will be in operation for the next Federal election.

In antici pation, I would answer — 1 .. no reasonable expense would be too great to secure the hearty co-operation of the commercial bacKbone of the whole of the States : 2., if after the experience of each State under separate Government they cannot as a whole elect 12 men whom they can trust i...

The Increase of Suicide. [Newspaper Article] — Molong Argus — 10 October 1902

Tlie Increase of Suicide. — o — One of tbe unfortunate features of the time? is the ever growing impulse towards self-destruction (writes a cor respondent).' Throughout the world the tendency is increasing out of pro portion to the natnral augmentation of population, and New South Wales, in common rvitb the rest of Austral [ asia, is no exception to the rule. Ac cording to the table just issued by the Government Statistician 874 people [ committed suicide in tho State during [ the five years ended 1900, as against I 713 tbe preceding five years, and 578 between 1886 and 1890. That is, of course, tbe number of officially recorded suicides, but therv is reason lo believe tbe actual number is much greater. The keeu competition which character ises modern conditions is rendering men more and more weary of the bur den of life. Some few years ago Dr. William Matthews made a careful analysis of the number of people who terminate their own existence annu ally in tbe different countries of E...
