A PATHETIC SUICIDE. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 5 October 1895
A PATHETIC SUICIDE A love tragedy had its painful sequel on the flagstones in front of the Cathedral of Notre Dame, Paris, when a young girl shot herself in a cab at noon on August 22. In June last a young man named Marcel Gasnet committed suicide because the family of his sweetheart would not recognise their union. The girl was of irreproachable morality, and took the death of her lover very much to heart. She was &nbsp; was apprised of the sad event by a carte telegram from a member of his family, which ran :— &nbsp; &nbsp; Mademoiselle— We had warned you not &nbsp; to try to see Marcel again. You took no &nbsp; heed of this warning. I have to inform you &nbsp; that the poor boy is dead. We buried him &nbsp; yesterday." The despair of the girl was terrible &nbsp; and her reason seemed in danger, but neverthe- less she continued to discharge her daily &nbsp; duties. On the fatal day, attired in deep &nb...

ADELAIDE WINE SHOW. THE FUDGING. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 5 October 1895
ADELAIDE WINE SHOW. THE JUDGING. The sample day in connection with the 1895 wine show of the Royal Agricultural and Hor- ticultural Society of South Australia was fixed for Friday week, and a large number of exhibitors and their friends visited the show during the day. It was held as usual in the cellars under the Jubilee Exhi- bition Building, and taken altogether was a great success. There were not quite so many entries as last year in some of the classes, although the competition was very keen, the falling-off in the number of competitors being due in a large measure to the absence of wines from the Angaston district. The entries for the cup this year were not so numerous as at the last show, and this may be to some ex- tent the result of doubling the entrance-fee, the finance committee having thought that the growers should contribute more towards the expense of the show. Of the quality of the wine it would be im- possible to speak in too high terms, and an appreciable differenc...
DEATH OF CAPTAIN McCOY. A WELL-KNOWN MARINER. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 5 October 1895
DEATH OFOAPTAIN McCOY A WELL-KNOWN MARINER. General regret will be felt in shipping circles throughout Australia at the death of Captain Alexander McCoy, who recently retired from his position as warden of the Marine Board in consequence of failing health. The captain had been connected with the Adelaide Steamship Company ever since its establishment in 1875, and it was under his supervision that the steamers Vic- torian and South Australian were built at the shipyards of Messrs. D. & W. Henderson, Glasgow, nearly 20 years ago. Of the ex- cellent work done by these two boats the captain was very proud, and on the occasion of the luncheon given on board the Marloo a few months ago he referred to the fact that the original engines are still running at the same rate of speed as when the vessels were launched. Captain McCoy had charge of the Victorian during several voyages between Adelaide and Sydney, but he retired from active work on the sea about 18 years ago. Since that dat...
