From The Geraldton Guardian newspaper, Thursday 3 August 1916:
"Constable Page, of Three Springs, has reported to Inspector Holmes that Herbert Horatio Clark, the infant son of Mr Clark, of Carnamah, died suddenly on Saturday. The child was only 17 days old and had been weakly since birth. An old lady named Mrs Francis Ann Payne, of Arrino, also died suddenly on Saturday. Deceased, who lived with her daughter, Mrs Dodd, had been confined to her bed for twelve months, and her end was therefore not unexpected. It was decided that an inquest was not necessary in either case."
