DALBY. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] [Newspaper Article] — Western Star and Roma Advertiser — 19 June 1875

DALBY. [FEOM OTTR OWN CORRESPONDENT. The Dalby Herald in its last issue reports a case of small-pox at Roma, and states that vac cine lymph had been sent for to Dalby and Bris bane with equally unsuccessful results. That such is the«ase, as far as the ability to obtain, lymph is concerned, is not only true of the pre sent but of the past, as I can affirm that for years past many parents Tiave been unable to get their -children vaccinated in Dalby, though re peated applications have been made, ait fitting seasons of the year, to those whose profession it is to attend to such matters to perform the ope ration—but in vain, the reply being invariably, No good vaccine matter on hand ; none to be obtained in Brisbane to be relied on, and the medical men there have not enough for local re quirements, and none to spare at the hospitals." It is true some has readied here, but it proved inefficient, its virtue having departed. This is a serious state of affairs when we consider the frightful ...

LOCAL AND GENERAL NEWS, i ■ -—: • a. ■—: i. \i A fearfully sudden death oecured on^jFriday \ morning last, June 18th, at the Soma Race | BalL At about half-past 1 o'clock a young man named Melding, was dancing in a polkaMa zurka, wlien he suddenly let go the lady who was dancing with him, staggered, and fell. Mr. Saunders, who was present, used every means to restore animation; but the action of the heart ceased almost immediately after the falL Dr. De Leon was sentfoi-, but life was extinct long before his arrival. The poor fellow's wife was also at the ball; thepainful nature of the scene that ensued can be more easily imagined than described. Of course the dancing was at once stopped, and. the company dispersed. It appears that Mr. Melding, who is a eaipenter in business ill the town, had been sufferingfrom heart disease for some years, but his health of late had much improved, and on the evening of the ball he appeared full of life and spirits, standing up in every dance, and ev...

The Ball. On the evening of Thursday the Race Ball took place in Mr. J. W. Johnston's large ■wool store—a building well adapted for the purpose—when about eighty people were pre sent.

Sm,-=-5 -Wish' through your columns to call public attention to the way in "which patients of the Roma Hospital—who happen to be in a dying state—are allowed to leave the wards of that institution, and thrown without any cause on the hands of any innkeeper or boarding-house keeper, who in the afflicted state of the poor fel lows are human enough to support them. I am led to those remarks by a case that happened in my own house this week. A patient left the Hospital a few days ago in. a dying state, and came to my house for the night. His passage had been arranged for by a friend for the fol lowing morning's coach, but a severe liomorrkage taking place in the night, he was unable to leave as he intended in the morning.

The Western Star. ROMA, SATURDAY, JUNE 19, 1875. [Newspaper Article] — Western Star and Roma Advertiser — 19 June 1875

®bt Mciitxnt ROMA, SATURDAY, JUKE 19, 1875. Tke tactics of the Opposition are becoming more clear as tlxe slovenliness and inconsis tency of t!ie legislative measures laid before Parliament are developed. Tlie Continental Railway Bill having shrunk into something like reasonable dimensions, and only a hun dred and ninety miles of railway having to be provided for, instead of a thousand, -the mode of defraying the cost naturally called for a more specific examination than it might have perhaps received had the whole scheme . as originally proposed been adhered to. Look ing at tlie comparatively small amount to be found, it is not easy to understand why the whole sum, instead of about half,: could not have been obtained in the first instance by way of loan, the interest being repaid out of the rents of the runs contiguous to the line and certain reservations made within a given cirde from the western terminus. But the Government seem determined to exercise an arbitrary and wrong sort ...
