Accident to a Lad. [Newspaper Article] — Adelong and Tumut Express and Tumbarumba Post — 6 April 1900
Accident to a Lad. On Wednesday week last a son of Mr. J. Hill was engaged with his school fellows in a game of football on the ground adjoining the public school, when he unfortunately fell upon a piece of partially - embedded glass, causing a nasty wound in the vicinity of the knee. The little sufferer was at once taken by his father to Dr. Watson, who attended to the injury. Master Hill is a particularly bright little fellow, and we trust that under Dr. Watson's skillful treatment he will soon be about again, none the worse physically for the enforced con finement to his room which he is at present undergoing.
A Rare Sight. [Newspaper Article] — Adelong and Tumut Express and Tumbarumba Post — 6 April 1900
A Rare Sight. It is on very rare occasions that townsfolk, or even country people, have an opportunity of seeing a live wild dingo, but this has been afforded the curious of Adelong by Mr. Sam. Smith, who not only holds a high reputation as a trapper, but has prac tically reduced dingo-catching to a science. The animal is a yellow slut, of more than ordinary size, and re- tains the ferocious spirit peculiar to this species of the canine order. The forefeet still bear the impression of the trap by which it was secured. Mr. Smith also broughtb in 20 dingo 'skins, which were handel over to Mr. Chas. Purcell, the gentleman ap pointed to receive, pay for, and de &nbsp; stroy such articles. '

BY RIGHT OF LOVE. PRELUDE. [Newspaper Article] — Adelong and Tumut Express and Tumbarumba Post — 6 April 1900
BY RIGHT OF LOVE. PRELUDE. &nbsp; Two men stood in the porch of a tiny chapel on one of the smallest of the Balearic Isles. &nbsp; They looked at the blue Mediter ranean, which heaved and rolled lazily almost at their feet, and occa sionally raised their eyes to the sky overhead — a glorious spread of dark southern blue, unflocked by clouds, save for one threatening patch of vapoury gloom which rose out of the &nbsp; sea on the eastern side of the island, and crept up and up until it rested above the cross on the tiny spire of the little chapel. One of the men noticed the cloud, &nbsp; &nbsp; and wondered what it might mean. A little rain would be welcome; but a big storm always proved dis &nbsp; &nbsp; astrous to the unsheltered islet. &nbsp; This man wore the garb of a priest. &nbsp; He was tall, and dark, and stately, and inscrutable-looking. The other looked what he was — an Englishman abroad on a yachting t...
