Dreadful Murder and Suicide. A HUSBAND KILLS HIS WIFE AND HIMSELF. [Newspaper Article] — Euroa Advertiser — 22 January 1886
reaiadu?l Yiurder . .n.d A HUSBAND: KILLS HIS' WIFE. AND HIMSELF. A profound sensation was created in Kilniore on Wednesday morning when it becaise known that a'dreadful -tragedy had been eiacted at a farmer's house at Forbes, about4 miles from the town on on the previous creniug. It appears that Tuesday morning, a man narmed Harker Brooks, a farmer, had a slight quarrel with his wife, and was in a very moody state all day. Towards - evening, when Mrs Brooks was working at a sewing muachine, a girl named Edna Evans,g about 14 years of age, came to the house, as was her custom every Tuesday, to get butter for the hawker, as Brooks's place is situated in a deep gully, surrounded by steep hills on eitherside, which renders access for large conveyances almost im possible. Mrs Brooks got up from her work and went to the dairy with the girl, giving her the butter, which was placed in a light spring cart. Miss Evans then started homewards, but had only gone about 100 yards, when she saw Mr...

We soon got amonggranite hills on which the soil is very poor, but in the valleys there were some very nice grass paddocks.' Tile nuliber of springs we passed was surprising, the bright green patches marking the existence of springs were to be seen on'every hand; and in one place there is a strong one in the centre of the main road. All this .country to the foot of the ranges is excellent pasture land, but it gives one the idea that to break the surface with the plough would be to ruin .it:- 'We gradually ascended the rocky range that forms the barrier onl this side of the valley in which Killeen is situated, and crossed it at a imost romantic spot called Burne's Pass.
