    • The Forbes Advertiser reported:

      "Ethel Florence Spruce had died under tragic circumstances, apparently the previous evening. The deceased, who was only about 41 years of age, was living in Currajong Street, in the vicinity of Bushman's Hall. She was last seen moving about on Sunday afternoon, and the fact that her door had been noticed closed all day yesterday caused Mr. W. H. Mullin, a near-by storekeeper, to suggest to his wife that she must be ill. Mrs. Mullin went across and found the place locked up, and being unable to gain any response to her knocking, she informed her husband, who went to the house and lifted a window. Mrs. Spruce was seen lying across the bed, the covering of which had been turned back, and a lamp in the room was still burning. When admittance was gained it was found that deceased had her shoes and stockings removed, but had got no further in her undressing. The police were immediately informed, and we understand that an inquiry will be held. The deceased had been under medical treatment for some time, and had recently complained of a pain in the side. The deceased leaves one daughter, Mrs. Chas. Woodward, junr., of Parkesborough."
