Death, of Mr. G. B. Shaw. Thursday's Bulletin. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 26 April 1892

Death, of Sir. Ok S. Shaw. Thursday's Bulletin. Geneuai regret was expressed in town yes terday at the news that Mr. G. B. Shaw bad died in the morning. It was known that Mr. Sbaw was seriously ill, bat the latest reports were reassuring, and the intimation of his death, therefore, came with something of a shock. Mr. Shaw, for a considerable time past had suffered from severe headaches, and about three weeks ago became so ill that he was confined to bed. The seat of trouble was the bead, and from the first it was spoken of as serious. It was really a para lytic seizure which fixed on the brain, but the immediate cause of death was paralysis of the heart, the disease suddenly attacking that vital organ. Sir. Shaw was one of the oldest residents and most prominent men in Bockbampton. Ho was n son of Mr. Richard Shaw, cotton broker, Wigan, Lancashire, England, and was born there on the 20th of April, 1833. He was within a few days of completing his fifty-ninth year. Mr. Sbaw was educat...

All Among the Floods. Br George! liow it rained. Seemed as if it would never slop. For several days the clouds bad been lowering, and as the season for storms was pretty far advanced the usual wet period of the year was expected to com mence on any day. It had rained inces santly for 48 hours, and the creek at Ban joeie, where out friends were camped, was much swollen and running pretty strong. The camp had been made in the timber near the watercourse, where there was a strong crop of grass, but Milligan, after surveying the sky-which kept ominously a leaden hue-shook his head and told the boss lie thought they had better abandon their pre sent snug quarters for higher ground. The way they had come the previous few days was along low-lying country, country sub ject to flood judging from the patches of lignum shrubs and groups of coolibar trees, and there seemed nothing for it but to cross the creek and make for the high ground which appeared beyond. The creek rose steadily, the tain...
