EXCITING INCIDENT AT BROKEN &nbsp; &nbsp; H ILL. Considerable consternation was caused at &nbsp; Biggs Commercial Hotel, Broken Hill, one morning last week by the strange and dan- gerous antics of a supposed lunatic. The at- tention of a barmaid was called to a man who, in a loud voice asked, "Where is Biggs?" He was told "in the back yard." &nbsp; &nbsp; He then went through the passage to the kitchen, seized a long carving knife and steel, and proceeded to take possession of the hotel. After the hasty flight of the cook, yardman, and hangers-on, the man rushed along the passage to the front bar, briskly sharpening the carver en-route. The busi- ness-like attitude of the operator and the rasping of the sharpening et el caused a stampede from the house, and the occupants bolted into the lane at the back, followed by the lunatic brandishing a knife. "'Hooray,"' he shouted, following some shrieking girls; &nbsp; "I'm going to be an actor...
