THE MUD STORM. [Newspaper Article] — The Bathurst Post — 15 October 1884

THE MUD STORM. Reapers of our daily and bi-weekly papers no doubt have noticed that some rather surprising accounts have been published under the above heading. It appears from these accounts, as well as from reports that have been given us, that red mud has been found, within, the last week, on the r6ofs. of houses in town, and at several places round the district. THE MYSTERY SOLVED (7) It may be within' the recollection of the readers of the Sydney Morning Herald that during last Summer, when those red slues wore so prevalent, that almost extraordinary letter was published in ? tliat lnlgjity organ, setting forth a probable reason for those red skies, at euch a late hour after the $10. 'disappearance of the sun. For the benefit of ttfo§^j)crsons who may road this, but did not see the j&cA tlicre set forth, we must now mention it. The writer stated that there wero thousands of miles in t|)e far West of this country without a ? blade of grass, and that red duet was all that...
