Nutfield Bull Gores Man YOUNG SON'S COURAGE [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser — 26 January 1940

Bull Gores Man YOUNG SON'S COURAGE Mr. Gordon Murphy, a well known resident of Nutfield sustained a badly torn leg and severe injuries to the chest when a Jersey bull attacked his last Sunday evening, Mr. Murphy was about to start milking when the bull charged and threw him. The bull then picked him up and pinned him against a post, one horn entering his chest. Seeing his father's predicament, Mr. Murphy's 1.4-year-old son Russell, bravely attacked the animal with a stick, and with the help of dogs, dis tracted its attention long enough for Mrs. Murphy to drag her unconscious husband to safety. Mr. Murphy was taken to Melbourne Hospital where he had seven stitches inserted in his chest. He is not considered to be in a critical condition, and has been transferred to "Genista" Hospital, Greensborough. No reason is apparent for the bull's sudden attack, as it is a comparatively quiet animal which has been hand fed with the cows for some time.

(To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser — 26 January 1940

(To the Editor.) Sir,--I have read with interest your report of the recent meeting of the Hurstbridge Progress Association and I heartily support any agitation which may be made for an adequate water supply for the township. There is one point however which seems to have escaped the notice of some of the residents of Hurstbridge. It was reported that Mr. D. G. Graham said "We considered the water scheme in conjuntion with Pan_ ton Hill, but their proposals were out of all proportion." May I venture to ask the reasons that caused Mr. Graham to make such an emphatic statement? Has he forgotten the amount of business derived from Panton Hill and district by Hurst bridge? While admitting that the Panton Hill scheme would be much more costly than that now proposed by Mr. Graham, the resulting bene fits to Hurstbridge and the greater part of the North Riding would be inestimable. With an adequate sup ply for both agricultural and domes tic purposes at Panton Hill--Kan garoo Ground distric...

Shooting Accident [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser — 2 February 1940

Shooting Accident A shooting accident which narrowly escaped being a tragedy occurred at Bruce's Crek last Saturday evening. Shortly after 8 p.m., two young men, John Walker of Flemington, and Stanley Rankin of Diamond Creek, were setting traps in a paddock. Hlaving shot at a rabbit and missed, Rankin re-loaded the weapon and, looking across the roadway, saw some thing move under a hawthorn hedge. They though it was a fox, and fired at it. The human cry of agony which fol lowed soon disillusioned them 'and they ran to find that the moving ob ject was Walter Aldridge, an 18 yean' old lad from South Melbourne. He had been injured with shot.pel lets in the face and right shoulder. Fortunately Aldridge was wrapped in his blanket when the pellets struck him, and the blanket took the worst of the blow. At this point the ground on which Rankin and W'alker were walking was about 3 ft below the road level, while the place where Aldridge lay was two feet below road level. Con sequently it was...
