On this day …….. 11th of April 1907

An unfortunate accident happened to Mr. Michael Bowles a farmer, of Wharparilla, near Echuca. He was engaged chaffcutting, and while on the stack dropped the knife which he was using. It fell amongst the hay, and in stooping to pick up another Bowles accidentally knelt on the knife, the blade of which entered the side of the knee joint, causing a painful wound.
