LOCAL TOPICS. [Newspaper Article] — The Horsham Times — 28 March 1882
LOCAL TOPICS. A vERY. important proposal is just now under consideration by our local financier, the question being the advisability of pur chasing some 20,000 acres of freehold land abutting on the town, and selling the same in conveniently sized blocks, with the view of inducing farmers to settle upon the land and cultivate it. The whole is under offer, and a meeting of gentlemen was held yester day to consider the same, but the price asked (£3 10s per acre) was considered too high. It was resolved to ask for a reduction to £3, in which case efforts would be made to float a company for the purchase of the land.

If the large breadth of country which-the proposed company contemplate acquiring was cut up into blocks suitable for family occupa tion, it would not only...

Two Children Killed by Drinking Bad Water. A sad fatality befell a married couple named Kearney, residing at Manaella, on Sunday last, their two young children, aged four years and a half and eighteen months respectively, being suddenly snatched from them by death.
