HEAT WAVE. [Newspaper Article] — The Byron Bay Record — 10 January 1903
HEAT WAVE. Sad Deaths at Casino. — We regret to have to record the death of two well-known Casino residents in the! persons of Messrs John Jordan,! hotel-keeper, and Thomas Glynn,! storekeeper, which sad events took place on Sunday, the immediate cause of death in both cases, we be lieve, being heat apoplexy. Both deceased were well known through out the districts, and general sym pathy is expressed on all sides for the bereaved relatives. Just before going to press last evening a telephone message came through from Casino to the effect that Mr. David B run ton, another well-known Casino resident, had expired as the result of che heat. Deceased became prostrate in the} street, and on being carried indoors! expired almost immediately. i The heat wave is very severe in the far west, the registration at Ken dall being 123 in the shade, Walgett! 120 i, Gookooga 120. A railway em-j ployee, named Joseph Crawford, j died of sunstroke near Walgett. j Many inland localities report that! unle...
COMMENTARIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Byron Bay Record — 10 January 1903
COMMENTARIES THE excessive heat-wave that is be- j ing experienced thoughout the State,! especially in Lis-I HEALTH more and the inland RESORTS, districts, has proved conclusively that it| is absolutely necessary that people! should be enabled to resort to the seaside if only for a day or two at a time to recover and return revived to ?tneir wonted avocations, we nave icometo the conclusion that if the Rail ;\vay Commissioners desire to help \ heat-stricken humanity they will run ja Saturday to Monday excursion train. (Several leading Lismore residents | have also stated that it is their be jlief that such an innovation would ipay the authorities were it carried! 'into effect, certainly it would be! ! worth trying : and Byron Bay and | Brunswick Heads are admitted to be ? the coolest places on the coast. ; People who have not visited the iBay would imagine that such a small jtown would be somewhat over- 1 'crowded when some ten or fifteen! i hundred visitors invade it as they doj id...
THE HARVEST OF THE SEA. [Newspaper Article] — The Byron Bay Record — 10 January 1903
THE HAKVEST OF THE SEA. ONCE attain we refer to this most! interesting subject, uniiu imi'v so.j Mmu'V is found, advanced, and voted j for almost every description of in-j dustry in lam*1 sums save the fishing! industry. Yet how wide are t lie J Molds h'Oin whence tins harvest should be garnered, the deep, yreen foresr of the sea. There is no life so u-t'ti, so hardy, and so useful as that --f the fisherman. The ceaseless boom of the ocean, the high notes of the rising gale are his symphony's, and In- lives as near to his labour as he can creep. How many thousands of mouths* there are that his labour would Mil. were only the opportun ity given him, and on the shores of rhe Pacific how many fishing ham lots luiirht be established, oach with its hardy community. The life of rhe fisherman in Australia would not lie so dangerous, nor are the s ;'a-- sons so severe as in England or Seot-j land, where much has to be endured, j lviil. sleet and snow, More.e gales, the sharp lash of the spr...

LOCAL AND GENERAL [Newspaper Article] — The Byron Bay Record — 10 January 1903
LOCAL AND GENERAL. The death roll, traceable directly and indirectly to the heat-wave, is distressingly long. Re the ghost-story of Brunswick Heads Mr. Marshall an old resident of the district, and who kept the first hotel at Brunswick, informs us the yarn is nothing but a canard, an invention of some winter night, over a spit-sizzling stove and through ciouas or tooacco smoke. Ana we thought we'd found a ghost that was something better than a slice out of a fog-bank, a ghost with a don't care-who-I-hit kind of a temper. Byron Bay badly requires a doc tor, resident in the town, and we don't want a superannuated, old, grandmother of a doctor either, but an energetic and up-to-date man who will combine a private hos pital with his out-door practice. We cannot comprehend why the people of the district; should be con tent to be carried off to Lismore — where the heat conditions has caused the death of more people than enough, poor Sydney Hull among them — instead of having a hospital es...

Useful Hints FASHIONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Byron Bay Record — 10 January 1903
Oseful ffthfe4 ? ::o:: ? FASHIONS. Boleros are still worn, though the style has somewhat changed, and the newest are arranged in box pleats which are allowed to flow freely just above the waist. They are not pretty unless made in something transparent, of lace, gauze or chiffon, and do not suit any but slim figures, Our blouses should no longer fasten down the back, neither are they so pouched as formerly, neatness is to oe tne rule or tne coming tasnions. Muslin and lace collars are worn as much as ever, and deeper, the points reaching to the waist of some. Linen gowns are greatly worn this summer, and they are not by any means as cool as they look. They are made plainly then strapped on blouse and skirt with the same material piped with linen in some favourite hue. It looks nice but adds to the weight of the dress. One model was of white linen piped with blue, fin ished with a blue and white silk tie. A grey linen piped with pink ap peared deliciously cool. The favourite hat of th...
MR. SYDNEY HULL. [Newspaper Article] — The Byron Bay Record — 10 January 1903
MR. SYDNEY HULL. Mr. Sydney Hull, the guard who was so badly injured on the Lismore- Tweed line, by falling from the train on November 28th inst., near St. Helena died in the Lismore Hos- pital on last Sunday evening. The many friends of Mr. Hull believed he was progressing towards recovery, &nbsp; therefore the news of his death comes as a painful surprise to all. We understand (says the Northern Star) that the fracture to right arm below the elbow was a very serious one, the bone having splintered and torn away the tendons and admitting gravel or dirt into the wound. His medical advisers wished to amputate the limb, but Mr. Hull would not have it. He was making good pro- gress up till Saturday night, when blood poisoning set in and he passed away as stated.
OBITUARY. WALTER ANTHONY WILSON. [Newspaper Article] — The Byron Bay Record — 10 January 1903
OBITUARY. WALTER ANTHONY WILSON. It is with extreme regret we have to chronicle the death of Walter, third son of Mr. J. Wilson. On Sunday 28th Dec., the little lad was plajing with some comrades, and fell from a log upon a stick which must have caused some internal injury. His parents took him to Lismore by the Monday morning train but in spite of all that skill and attention could do the poor little boy succumb- ed to his injuries on Friday 2nd January. " In the midst of life we are in death," and it is inexpressibly sad that one so young and beloved should be taken so suddenly. He was only nine years of age and the deep- est sympathy is felt for his be- reaved parents.

SUNSTROKE. [Newspaper Article] — The Byron Bay Record — 17 January 1903
SUNSTROKE. The late Dr. Sides (formerly of Bourke, N.S.W.), informed the writer that he found the most suc cessful treatment of sunstroke or heat stroke lav in keeping up the strength of the patient by small doses .of brandy and beaten raw eggs at intervals — of course, after an out ward restorative had been applied. By the way, it has been stared on a doctor's authority that hot water should be applied as a restorative in preference to cold, the dashing of iced water on the head ana neck tending to leave the patient's brain affected for life.—' Ibex.'
