Thursday 15 December 1904, The Sydney Morning Herald

NORTH GUYRA. Wednesday.

Yesterday afternoon Alfred Collins
attempted to murder a young woman named
Emily Hales, and then committed suicide.
He fired at her head with a rifle, and she
received such injuries that she was uncon-
scious for some time. Collins then put the
muzzle of the rifle to his forehead, and shot
himself dead.
