Mr. and Mrs. Harry Dowling had a miraculous escape from more serious injuries when their horse bolted at Yellowin on Friday last, smashing the sulky, in which they were travelling in its wild career and throwing them heavily to the ground, Both were admitted to the Tumut and District Hospital, to where they were conveycd by the Ambulance.

Mr Dowling is suffering from an injured knee and abrasions and will be a patient for some time. Mrs Dowling, who suffered minor bruises and abrasions, was allowed to go home after treatment.

The accident occurred near the home of Mr and Mrs F. Halpin (Mrs Dowling's parents) at Sandy Creek, Yellowin.

Mr Dowling was thrown from the sulky against a tree, the force of the impact causing his injuries. - (Ref- Accident At Yellowin The Tumut and Adelong Times (NSW : 1864 - 1867; 1899 - 1950) Monday 18 June 1945 p 2).

TUMUT MAN INJURED BY, FALLING TREE - Mr. John Dowling (57), of Blowering Road, Tumut, suffered internal injuries when struck by a falling tree whilst cutting eucalyptus near. Yellowin, ... and he was conveyed by ambulance to Tumut, where he was admitted to Tumut Hospital.

His condition is reported to be satisfactory. Mr Dowling was endeavoring to fell two trees, one of which was leaning against the other. He had made the first cut on one side of the tree and had gone around the other side and given the tree a crack with his axe, which caused both trees to fall together. He received a glancing blow on the left side of his back, which caused the internal injuries:

The Tumut ambulance was met at Yellowin post office by a lad on a pony, who guided it six miles over a bush track to where injured man Mr Dowling was and conveyed to Tumut District Hospital, but it was decided to convey him to Sydney for specalist's treatment.(Ref- The Tumut and Adelong Times (NSW : 1864 - 1867; 1899 - 1950) Mon 18 Jun 1945 Page 2).

1897 - YELL0WIN. - (from our own correspondent.) - The weather has been exceptionally hot and dry during the past week. A heavy thunder storm passed over on Thursday last, but only 23 points of rain fell, which will do a lot of good to the wheat and maize crops, particularly the former, which just now required light showers to prevent the grain from becoming pinched while it is developing.

The maize crops look very promising so far, but if the hot, dry weather continues much longer, farmers must be content with a poorer crop than last year. Many of the old hands remark that they have never seen a worse spring about here, and it is much too late to expect a good spring now.

Shearing is in full swing at Yallowin and West Blowering. Both places expect to cub out in about a fortnight. Four thousand sheep, the property of Mr S. White, of Merybidinija, passed through Yallowin yesterday en route for Boraig, where they will remain during the summer mouths.

A cricket match is to be played next Saturday on the East Blowering wicket between teams representing East and West Blowering.

Msssrs. P. H. and S. Wilkinson, of Yallowin, have started a stud herd of Hereford cattle, having procured some of the best strains from well known herds, introducing some of the well-known local strain. Their herd comprises thirty cows and heifers and two bulls, which by their pedigrees should equal any stud herd up country, and by judicious breeding I feel sure they will have no trouble of disposing of their increase in those parts, as the Hereford strain has for many years held supremacy in the mountains over any other breed, being excellent for beef, heavy, hardy, and mature young. So I wish tbe Messrs. Wilkinson every success in their new undertaking. - (Ref- Albury Banner and Wodonga Express (NSW : 1896 - 1939)(about) Previous issue Friday 3 December 1897).


The wife of Mr. W. E. Wilkinson, of Yellowin, near Tumut, died suddenly from heart failure on Saturday afternoon. The deceased lady was the sister-in-law of Mr. T. U. Wilkinson, Police Magistrate, of Wagga.

Her husband's mother, Mrs. Thomas Wilkinson, senr, sustuined a paralytic stroke on Saturday morning, and on the way home after a visit to his mother, who resided two miles away, Mr. W. K.

Wilkinson found found his wife lying lifeless almost a mile and a half from his own residence. The lady had evidently essaved to ride on horse back to ascertain the nature of her mother-in-laws illness and could not have been more than half an hour when she was discovered.

She had dismounted, tied her horse to a fence, and taken off her gloves and belt.

A magisterial inquiry showed that death was due to heart failure.

The deceased lady who was greatly respected resided, leaves one son, aged about 15 years and one daughter aged about 11 years, who was at school in Sydney.

According to later accounts Mrs Thomas Wilkinson, senr., has improved. - (Ref- Wagga Wagga Advertiser (NSW : 1874 - 1905)(about) Previous issue Thursday 11 May 1905 Page 2).
