Western Mail Thursday 12 November 1936, page 11   

"Microbe."

He was a peculiar looking man, medium height, long-legged, and hunched-back. His voice was squeaky, and high pitched, and he could do anything but he liked being a cook best of all. He had wandered around the Eastern Fields for a long time, and he was getting full of it. He would like to get some job where he could settle down for a bit. He didn't care what it was. His proper name was John Morgan, but he was always called "Microbe." Every-one called him that, and he took no offence.
For a long time Microbe kept a shanty ¡ on the Sandstone-Youanmi road. It was a neat little place, kept beautifully clean and in summer time well sprinkled with water, and, therefore, a godsend to the weary wayfarer. As he did not interfere with the trade of legitimate liquor sellers, he was not molested.

Obituary - WILLIAM (BILLY) WATSON

Word was received early on Saturday morning last of the death, at Youanmi the previous evening, of William Watson, eldest son of Mr and Mrs William Watson, of this town. No details are to hand, but it appears that deceased promised to lend a rifle to a friend to go kangaroo shooting about 6 :30 on Friday evening, and about that time deceased went to his room, evidently to get the rifle, and almost immediately on entering, an explosion was heard, the rifle having gone off, probably when being taken from behind the bed, the bullet going through deceased’s head and lodging in the corner of the room. An inquiry was held. Deceased was a returned soldier and with bis brother, Charlie, bad recently taken up pastoral country south of Youanmi. He spent his boyhood days in Mt. Magnet and enlisted for active service abroad after the great war started and was wounded at Gallipoli. Sincere sympathy is felt for the bereaved parents and family.
