A Jockey Killed W. WILLIS MEETS HIS END AT WOODSTOCK. &nbsp; A sad fatality occurred at Wood- stock races on Tuesday, when Jockey &nbsp; William Willis, aged about 28, met with an accident whidh resulted in his death.

Willing hands were quickly to his assistance, and the unfortunate young fellow was conveyed to town under the local doc- tor's direction. Dr. Foley, of Cowra, was then telephoned for, and on that gentleman's suggestion he was taken to the Cowra District Hospital, where he passed away about 10 o'clock on Tuesday night.
