DKATIT Ol' MK. GOL'G H. OF JUNDAH. Oun correspondent, "Nemo," writes from Jundah under date Sept. 11th :-The opening of my last jottings, which have not yet been published, was a chorus of jubilation; but, alas ! this time my theme all through must be one of sadness, to the exclusion of all other matters. A family under most horrible cir cumstances has become bereaved, and the whole town saddened by the death of Mr. Janies Gough, of thc Traveller's liest, late Pas toral Hotel. I have no doubt you will have heard by wire of this event, but a few particu lars which you may rely upon viii I dare say bo accepted. On Monday, August 15th, Mr. Gough left Jundah against the wish of his wife and the advice of his friends to go to Evengy station. He was seriously unwell at the time, suffering from fever, ana therefore in a most debilitated condition. It seems he took the road via Warbreccan, and at thc yards there ho had one of his two horses gored He, how ever, went on to Evengy, where he ar...

FIRE AT LONGREACH. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 20 September 1892

FIRE AT LONGREACH. A FIRE which might have resulted in the     destruction of one of the most valuable blocks in Longreach, broke out about 4 a.m. on Mon day morning in tho kitchen of Mr. T. L. Forbes' Welcome Home Hotel. The fire was at first noticed by one of the boarders, who gave the alarm, the building being then all ablaze from one end to the other. Two of the servants who were in the rooms adjoining, for tunately got out uninjured, although some of the things in it were burning before they were awakened. Luckily there was plenty of water on the premises and willing hands to use it, otherwise the result would have been disas trous ; there being nothing to stop the destruc tion of the Great Western Hotel on the one side, and a building and Mr. W. Smith's billiard room on the other. The origin of the fire is supposed to be the falling of a piece of wood from the stove, which ignited the kitchen floor.

A Shabby Trick. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 20 September 1892

A Shabby Trick. For owners or trainers ot racehorses with only a small stud to control, and but a limi ted amount of capital at command, few places offer greater facilities as a centre for directing operations than the pleasant little town of Epsom, near Surrey. At least, so thought Terence O'Brien and myself when, as we were casting about for a habit ation for ourselves and a miscellaneous, if not a numerous assortment of four-footed friends, we located ourselves at Brackelhurst Lodge, near the outskirts of the famous Downs. Terence and myself had been racing part ners for a good mony years before circum stances, in the shape of an unusually unlucky season, placed us in the position to carry out the project which had long been on our minds and embark on a career as private trainers. To look after the more practical details of the stable we employed a head lad in the shape of Sam Peachey, and a veritable treasure he proved himself. So thorough a master was he of every detail of stab...
