Poor Broken Hill. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 13 March 1889
Poor Broken Hill &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Poor Broken Hill : How it is perjured ! The Auckland Observer of a recent date, tells the story of how ten Thames (N.Z ,) miners "were recently engaged for &nbsp; Broken Hill at £3 a head per week on a three years agreement. On their way up &nbsp; to the Silver Çity from Adelaide they met an old Thamesite returning to New Zea land. He was, he told them, the solitary survivor of just such a little party as theirs. Three years before he and his &nbsp; mates went to work in the mines. One by one death had carried them off, until he alone was left to tell the tale. That was a cheering hearing for the boys, &nbsp; wasn't it ! Broken Hill has tempted hundreds of men to their death. The climate is simply awful. During the hot season -- now in full swing - men die off like rotten ...

Beating the Bounds. IMPROVEMENTS FOR SILVERTON. THE first annual inspection of the bound- aries of the municipality of Silverton, as suggested by the Mayor. (Mr. Henry 'Browne), was begun on Tuesday, and the following were recommended:- &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; That the road from the goods station &nbsp; for about 10 chains be metalled, so as to join the main road west towards Silverton. That the sand be taken off the metal road on the bed of the creek at the Day Dream crossing, and that this part be remetalled. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; That the ruts made at the intersection of Sturt and Loftus-streets by the water- course be filled up, and the improvement of the street effected. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; That the holes now opon in Sterling- street be filled up to surface level. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &...
Is He Sane? [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 13 March 1889
Is He Sane ? &nbsp; THIS afternoon a middle-aged man named William H. Davis, who has been working at the Proprietary mine but was dis- charged on Monday, evening, gave him- self up to Constable Nolan, charging him- self with having wilfully poisoned a boundary rider known as " George," on Sturt's Meadows station, about eighteen months ago. The station is about 40 miles to the north of Broken Hill, and Davis says that he and "George " occu &nbsp; pied the same hut, and that when the latter was dying, he (Davis) informed Mr. Frank Kerr, the overseer, of bis con- dition, and when death ensued, the body, was buried in the bush without any suspicion as to the cause of death. Davis has an impediment of some kind in his speech, and the police think he is &nbsp; wandering in, his mind, but he tells his story circumstantially. He is detained for medical examination as to his state of intellect. &nbsp;
Odds and Ends. [BY OMNIBUS.] [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 13 March 1889
Odds and Ends. [By OMNIBUS.] THE laws of sanitation are not a very &nbsp; savory subject upon which to write ; yet, like many other, matters, it is necessary that they be thoroughly understood, more especially when some of the townspeople think they are subjected to arbitrary &nbsp; treatment at the hands of the municipal &nbsp; authorities. I may premise by stating that the main cause of so much sickness in the town has been owing to, the want of sanitary precautions, of which, the use of cesspits has been the chief factor. In cases of a heavy downpour of rain these &nbsp; are liable to be flooded, and. the overflow runs into watercourses that debouch into those reservoirs which supply the &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; inhabitants with their domestic water. It will, therefore, be obvious that any &nbsp; steps taken to mitigate; this evil must be advantageous to the community at large, even if a few...
A Brave Mother. SAD BURNING FATALITY. SYDNEY, Wednesday. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 13 March 1889
A Brave Mother. SAD BURNING FATALITY. &nbsp; SYDNEY, Wednesday. The daughter of Joseph Pickering, a farmer, residing at Fryer's Creek, near Castlemaine, was gathering sticks in a paddock when her dress was caught alight by some smouldering cinders. A breeze was blowing at the time, and the un- fortunate girl was enshrouded in flames immediately. Her mother saw the catas- trophe and ran to her daugher's assist- ance, folding the girl in her own clothes, this resulting in herself receiving most terrible burns. Nevertheless, though suffering acutely, she carried her child for nearly a hundred yards. When she had struggled along thus far she fell exhausted and unconscious. The child had strength and presence of mind enough to crawl home, but the mother is unaware how she reached the house. The child shortly after died in great agony. The mother's condition ia regarded aa very critical.

The Wheat Harvest. MELBOURNE, Wednesday. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 13 March 1889
The Wheat Harvest. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; MELBOURNE, Wednesday. The colony's wheat yield for last season &nbsp; is estimated to total 8,632,200, or an aver- age of 7-11 bushels per acre. The sur- plus available for exportation is computed at 1,376,000. Mr. H. H. Hayter, the Government statistician, further esti- mates that the united surplus of Victoria and South Australia will be insufficient to supply New South Wales' deficiency by a long way. Consequently, for the first time for very many years, Australia must import grain for her own consumption. &nbsp;

They also intend adopting uniform plans for their works in the future. &nbsp; &nbsp;
