DEATH IN THE BUSH.
Sub-inspector Quilter is in receipt of a wire from Sergeant Duffy, of Muttaburra, stating that the Mount Cornish stockmen while out mustering, found the dead body of an elderly boundary rider named Charles Franklin, on the Mount Cornish and Eastfield boundary (states the Longreach correspondent of the “Courier” on July 31.) From appearances the horse must have rolled over Franklin about a week ago. The horse and saddle were found in a paddock. Constable Crane has gone out to investigate the matter and bury the body.
