* - :??'.?-' THE . ::-'' PullUheA ctery Monday, Wednetdaij, and Friday Morning. FAIR AND IMPARTIAL. 3I0XDAT, JANUARY 0, 1S90. ADVANCE DEVONPORT.. Thk ratepayers ol i^OM^SfijnUjo niorrow be called upon to give their de cision on a question of considerable im^ portance to the town. A proposal to erect public buildings has emanated from the Town Board, but to carry it out will necessitate the' borrowing of £1,500. Without the sanction ot-Jkhe people — by a two-thirds majority^-tKe Board cannot proceed to raise a loan for the requisite amount. 'We very much question whether anyone, would object to a town hall being built in Devonport if;the matter of financing were out of the question ; but as there is ,? not , ,^he remotest probability of a suitable build-' ing being lowered from the] heavens, , or of any' provision . being made. - by a local philanthropist, the solid fact that confronts us is that if the people want a town hall, they, . most' assuredly, mu_st pay for it.

Another Murder AS MYSTERIOUS AS THE LAST. A LAD AND HIS PONY FOUND DEAD Brisbane, Sunday. [Newspaper Article] — The North Western Advocate and the Emu Bay Times — 9 January 1899
Another Murder AS MYSTERIOUS AS THE LAST. A LAD AND HIS PONY FOUND DEAD. Brisbane, Sunday. The news of the arrest of Richard Bur- gess on suspicion of having connection with the Gatton tragedy has been followed closely by the discovery of what appears to be still another diabolical crime. A lad named Alfred Hill, the son of a saddler at Goodna, left his home on De- &nbsp; cember 10 on a visit to some relatives. He was mounted on a pony, and though no- thing had since been heard of the boy, the pony was found a few days back in some scrub, shot through the forehead. This led to redoubled efforts by the searchers, and yesterday the dead body of the lad was discovered beneath some bushes, a distance of 300 yards from where the pony was found. The body was stripped of clothing, and was in an advanced state of decomposition. As to how and why the lad died there is yet no clue. The police are actively investigating.

Queensland Murders. &nbsp; The Gatton Tragedy. A MAN ARRESTED AT BUNYA. &nbsp; A DESPERATE RESISTANCE. REMANDED FOR EIGHT DAYS. Brisbane, Sunday. Ever since the commission of the treble murder near Gatton on Boxing Night when two sisters and a brother were mur- dered, the former being cruelly outraged, the police have been scouring the country in the hope of finding some clue to the perpetrators, and at last their efforts ap- pear to have been crowned with success. The receipt of certain information caused a posse 'of officers to visit the Bunya Mountains, in the Dally district, and the result was the arrest of a man named Richard Burgess on a charge of com- plicity in the crime. The man made a desperate resistance, and the united efforts of four men were called into requisition before he was secured. When questioned, Burgess refused to give any account of his movements on the night of the murders, and told his questioners to "go to Hell." &nbsp; The man was ...
THE HOME [Newspaper Article] — The North Western Advocate and the Emu Bay Times — 11 January 1899
THE HOME!*'1* To Polish' Steel Grates.— If rubbed .daily with a leather these ought to keep per fectly bright, but should rust appear, cover the grate with sweet oil, and leave it for 48 hours. Then rub with unslacked lime until all the rust disappears. To Keep Butter Fum in Summer :— Dissolve Id worth- of saltpetre in cold water and stand the butter crock in it, so that the saltpetre water may reach well up the sides.

For the Ladies. DRESS AND FASHION. [Newspaper Article] — The North Western Advocate and the Emu Bay Times — 11 January 1899
For the Ladies. DRESS AND FASHION. Jackets. — Jacket bodices are likely to be an inseparable part of corning fashions, and the choice is endless. Those that are rounded in front come under the denom ination of the zouave, while the Eton is longer, straighter, and altogether more severe; it threatens to he the leading pattern. Mess jackets have a point in tho centre of the back and often arc sufficiently long to hide tho belt. Some of the lead ing dress makers are favoring the square fronted Russian cut. hut that forms onn of a triple garment, for it is set over a waisteoast that displays a shirt front at tho neck, unless it is a faithful copy of the peasant bodice, and is filled into tho throat with a pleated yoke of white cam bric or satin. A Pretty Pinafore. — A very pretty pina fore can be made in this way. It is com posed of very fine nainsook with a strip of really good embroidery back and front,' and one for each shoulder-strap. The sleeves consist of a frill of nainsook with ...
