ICE CREAM.

Ulmarra District.

PATRONS OF CHURCH FLOWER SHOW.

GRAFTON, October 15.
More than 50 persons, adults and children, suffered from ptomaine poisoning after eating ice cream at the Ulmarra Methodist flower show on Friday night.

Some of the victims are still confined to bed Calls for medical aid came from all parts of the town and from the outlying districts of Deep Creek, Coldstream and Coldstream Road

Alan Fernance, night operator at the telephone exchange, was one of the victims but he stuck to his post.
One man attending the flower show ate ice cream and took some home to other members of the household with the result that before long all were in agony. It is thought that the poisoning may have resulted from a newly welded bottom in the ice cream container.

ON THE MURDER TRAIL.

1937 saw the suspected murder of one ERNEST HARRY BROWN. Ernest Harry had at some time sold the lease of goodwill and the licence of the COMMERCIAL HOTEL, ULMARRA.  Ernest was a plaintiff in a case before the Court in Sydney. Now the defendant was one, MARY MULLEN.  Ernest Harry had taken out an injunction to stop MARY MULLEN from receiving any more money without his consent. This was in connection with the COMMERCIAL HOTEL SALE.

The intimation seems to be that Ernest Harry’s alleged murder was very convenient for someone involved in this dispute.  I shall look for follow up articles. In May 1937, the suspect is ON THE RUN in a roadster which belonged to E.H. himself. The police had traced the man they desired to interview, to Sydney. What’s more, they had almost caught up with him. An Auburn Car had been tracked to a garage in Newtown but was driven away just before the police arrived.

The Auburn car had belonged to E.H at the time of his murder. It sounds a fine vehicle. The roadster had red stripes running from the radiator and a black hood. It was grey or light blue and had “either an old style NSW number plate or a Queensland plate.”

Said Roadster was reported as being seen in South Australia, and out near Broken Hill and yet again near Parkes.

WHO WAS DRIVING THIS ROADSTER?

WAS HE CONNECTED TO MARY MULLEN?

Hmmm!
