before I heard screams issuing from my house, I had gone to the
well for water, leaving deceased standing at the door, she was then
enjoying good health. This was on the 3rd inst about 5 pm, on hearing
the screams, I saw Mrs Quinlan running towards my house and deceased
running from the house with her clothes on fire. Mr james England

observe in the chimney when I left a few minutes before, nor were
there any lamps or candles burning in the house, I had a short time
previously put wood in the chimney to be in readiness for the fire
to prepare the supper , and I think there must have been some red
embers in the chimney which ignited the wood. My little boy aged
3 years 4 months told me deceased was stirring the fire with a piece
of dead wood and that the draught from the door ignited the fire
which caught her clothes. I accompanied my husband to the Amhurst

morning last Mr Hugh Torney died after a painful illness of many
months' duration. The deceased had suffered terribly from cancer
in the throat, and although treated by several medical men and operated

anxieties which his long and painful illness must have entailed

On November 14th, 1945, I visited the Dromana Bush Nursing Hospital
at about 10 am and examined the body of Ian John Torney, aged 3
years and four months, life was extinct. There was a depressed fracture
of the left frontal bone (forehead). The right leg was fractured
(both bones) at about the middle. There was extensive bruises and
abrasions on the face, especially the right side and abrasions near
the left scapula (shoulder blade) and bruises on all limbs. Death
in my opinion was due to the injuries received and shock which would
be inevitable in the circumstances. The injuries were consistant
with his having been thrown from and dragged by a horse.

About 8 am on the 14th day of November 1945 I went with my brother
to a paddock at the rear of the house. I saddled up two ponies with
the intention of rounding up draught horses in a nearby paddock.
I lifted Ian onto one pony and put his feet into the stirrup straps.
I then mounted the other pony. We walked our ponies for a distance
of about 300 yards, and were up with the draught horses. The draught
horses then trotted off into an adjoining paddock and Ian's pony
trotted behind them into the paddock. The draught horses then turned
and trotted into the original paddock which they had left. Ian's
pony was still trotting behind them. As Ian was proceeding through
a gateway he slipped from the saddle and his left leg was caught
in the stirrup strap. His pony bolted and Ian was dragged for a
long distance. After a while the stirrup strap broke and Ian fell
to the ground. My father then came along and picked Ian up. The
pony galloped out of sight towards home and I lost sight of it after
it crossed a hill. The pony was an old one and is quiet. I have
never known it to bolt before. I think it was the fact that the
pony swerved when it was passing through the gate that caused my
brother to slip out of the saddle. Ian to my knowledge had ridden
the pony three or four times previously. I think this was the first
occasion he had ridden on his own. Previously my brother Trevor
had mounted the pony with him. Prior to the pony bolting I caught
it by the rein , but it pulled away and bolted. KKM Torney

company with deceased and two children went for a bathe in a dam
situated about eight chains from the house. Deceased was in the
water, and Mrs Benson sat on the bank and watched her. Miss Torney
asked where the shallow part of the dam was, and on it being pointed
out she paddled about for a while. She said she could swim, but
had not had a swim for five years. She swam a few strokes on her
side and then put her head under the water. She repeated this two
or three times and then put her hands up to her head, and a little
while afterwards went under. Mrs Benson saw the top of the girls
head and called out to her, but she did not answer. Mrs Benson went
into the water to try and save her, but could not rescue her as
the water was too deep, and she could not swim. Mrs Benson ran to
the top of the bank and called for help. Her husband came over immediately
and went into the water about a minute afterwards. Mr James Benson
drove up in a buggy. He also jumped into the water, and the body
was pulled out. From the time Mrs Benson called to the time Mr Jas
Benson came up not more than six or seven minutes had elapsed. When
the body was laid on the bank, Mrs Benson, her husband and Mr J
Benson made every effort to restore animation with success. Word
was then sent to St Arnaud Police, Deceased had been in Mrs Benson's
employ for 12 months, and was on good terms with the family, and
in good spirits.

WEST (from our own correspondent)
By the death of Mrs Wm Torney, sen., there has been removed from
our midst one of the oldest and most highly respected of local residents.
Though a patient sufferer for a long time, and her death not unexpected,
still the sad news caused profound expressions of sorrow on all
sides. The late Mrs Torney was a woman with a heart to feel for
other's woes, and of a very kind and neighbourly disposition. In
sickness, bereavement, or trouble of any kind, her's was the voice
to cheer and comfort, and her's the hand held forth to help. Very
many can speak of kindnesses received from her, for she was indeed
a true friend at all times and will be greatly missed. The deceased
carried on farming operations here with much success, but a few
years back she retired and had lately been residing with her son,
Mr Wm Torney. She leaves a family of twelve to mourn their loss.
The members are - Mrs R Rowe, Eden, NSW; Mr W Torney, Carapooee

death took place at the Warracknabeal District Hospital on Friday
last of Ronald Torney, of Brim. Deceased who was only 20 years of
age, was well known in Brim where he had spent his school days.
The cause was intestinal obstruction. Deceased appears to have been
unfortunate since childhood and has had more than his fair share
of misfortunes and accidents. When a child he fell and broke his
arm, later he had a bullet lodge in his leg and later still was
operated on for appendicitis. More serious than all the others,
he met with a gun accident and lost an arm. Notwithstanding all
these misfortunes he was of a bright and happy disposition, and
seemed to treat misfortune lightly, and was popular with his mates
and acquaintances. He was ill only three days, and although every
effort was made to overcome the trouble it was of no avail and he
passed away to the intense sorrow of his parents and friends. The
remains were interred in the Warracknabeal Cemetery on Friday. The
service was conducted by the Rev H A De La Rue. The coffin, which
was covered with beautiful flowers from sympathising friends and
relatives was carried by Messrs D Burns, J Bloomer, E Giddings and
V Pearce, and the Pall bearers were Messrs W Ferguson, W Trew, W
Stewart, J Blackman, H Blackman, T Blackman, L Baker and F Oehm.
Mr T E Gardiner satisfactorily carried out the funeral arrangements.

Torney, aged 68, met his death by drowning this week. On Wednesday
he left home with the intention of looking at his bees, and said
he would not return till Thursday. When his two dogs came home without
him on that day, anxiety was felt for his safety, and First Constable
Ryan organised a search party. Messrs P Pitcher and W Rodwell went
with him to bung Bong, and Mr torney was not at his camp. This morning
First Constable Ryan, and Messrs P Pitcher and Allan and Alf Parker
continued the search. At Paddy's Gully, a few hundred yards north-east
of hard Hill and about two miles from the town, they found Mr Torney

for the family in their sad and sudden bereavement.

DEATH OF MR WM TORNEY
which caused the death of Mr William Torney, President of the Carapooee
Farmer's Club, and well known as an old resident of the district
and advocate of farmers' interests, took place on Thursday evening.
It appears that the deceased, who had visited several hotels in
the town in company of a young man named Charles George Noble, at
8 o'clock on the evening named set out for his home at Carapooee
in company with Noble, both being on horseback. After passing the
railway gates on the Stuart Mill road, deceased started to gallop
his horse, and thus got some distance ahead of his companion. On
Noble proceeding along the road, and when near the fruit gardens
known as Reuben Abery's, he came across Torney lying on the road,
and bleeding from a scratch across his nose. He got off his horse
and asked deceased if he was hurt, and received an inarticulate
reply. Noble then caught deceased horse, and returning tried to
get the latter up to go home, but found he was unable to rise. He
(Noble) then went to Mr Battersby, a resident close by, for assistance,
and procuring water, asked deceased if he would take a drink, when
he replied "No." They then sponged some into his mouth,
which appeared to revive him. Noble then came into the town and
having reported the matter to Constable Smith, proceeded out in
a cab with that officer, and Torney was removed to the hospital,
where he died between 4 and 5 o'clock yesterday morning. Deceased
leaves a widow and family of twelve - six boys and six girls - chiefly
grown up, to mourn their loss. An inquiry was held at the hospital
yesterday afternoon before Mr P McBride, JP, touching the death
of the deceased. Constable Smith in his evidence stated that before
leaving Torney in the cab on the way to hospital he asked him where
he was hurt, when he replied "I'm alright," and putting
his hand to his head said "Leave me alone boys." Charles
George Noble, in addition to facts above stated, said that after
seeing Torney to the hospital he went to deceased's farm at Carapooee
for a horse, but did not mention the accident to Torney's relatives
because he personally thought it was not serious, and did not wish
to cause alarm. He returned to St Arnaud at 9 o'clock next morning
when he heard Torney was dead. Maurice Griffin, wardsman at the
hospital, in his evidence said that on the evening of the 4th January,
at 10.15, deceased was, soon after admission, examined by Dr Fleming,
who did not think anything serious was wrong with him, but left
orders for the night nurse to watch him during the night. Deceased
died between 4 and 5 o'clock on the morning of the 5th January.
Margaret Armstone, night nurse at the hospital, deposed that the
deceased never spoke during the time he was under her care, and
was very quiet. At 4 o'clock on Friday morning he was asleep, but
slightly restless; while at 5.30 when she visited deceased she found
him dead. Frank Battersby, gardener, also gave evidence as to rendering
deceased assistance when called on to do so by Noble. Dr Angwin,
who made an external examination of deceased, said that there was
a small cut just above the bridge of the nose. The surrounding parts
were considerably bruised, and there was considerable effusion of
blood around the left eye. There was another cut three quarters
of an inch long at the back of the right ear and some bruising.
He could not detect any other injuries. From examination and evidence
he gave his opinion that the cause of death was compression of the
brain, due to rupture of a blood vessel in the brain, the injuries
being such as might have been received by a fall from a horse. The
coroner then returned a verdict that William Torney died from compression
of the brain, due to a rupture of a blood vessel in the brain, caused
by his falling from a horse accidentally.
