Attempted Murder & Suicide. (BY ELECTRIC TELEGRAPH.) [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] IPSWICH, February 23. [Newspaper Article] — The Northern Mining Register — 4 March 1891
Attempted Murder & Suicide. (BY ELECTRIC TELEGRAPH.) [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] IPSWICH, February 23. A terrible tragedy occurred at Hallonvale yesterday morning. About half-past 8 a German selector named Frank Firabend quarrelled with his wife, accusing her of unfaithfulness, which she denied. He then asked her to sew a button on his shirt, and as she was doing this he caught hold of her and attempted to strangle her. Judging from the state in which she was afterwards found, she must have been greatly ill-used. She escaped, and reached the house of a neighbor named Wm. Hawk, who attended to her. On the way she had met a man named Gerike, who proceeded to her place and found her husband lying in a pool of blood with a terrible gash in his throat, and a gun lying close by. Gerike sent information to the police at Marburg, and mounted Constable McNeill went to investigate. From the information obtained, it is thought, to be simply a case of suicide. He therefore sent for J....

Hints to I^rosiwciops. [Br A. W. CLARKE, F.G.S ] CWri-fcen for Hie NOETHEFX MINING BEGISTEB.) ir. The b'owpipe is so essential for the recognition of minerals and ores generally that I have de'ermined to deal with it in this article. Using a blowpipe is j not unlike walking, we have learned to balance our bodies in walking mid standing go that it is done without conscious effort; precisely similar is it with using a blowpipe, and any person who perseveres for n few days can succeed. Out of the hundreds ot persons whom 1 have j taught how to blow continuously there was not more than one in a hundred who failed utterly and hopelessly, while in two lectures the great major ity of students succeeded in blowing well enough to use the little instru ment for mineralogical purposes. There is greater difficulty in des cribing laow to use the blowpipe than in using it, but if the lead r bears the following points in wind they niay guide him somewhat. Firstly, we can breathe through the nostri...
