101 years ago: Missing Friend Eugene Charles SAMPSON

One hundred and one years ago today, the Sunday Times, Perth advertised for a Broadford man in its Missing Friends column, on page 15S.

Eugene had been farming at Kyneton, which is in the Macedon Ranges in Victoria. That begs the question why they were looking for him in Perth.
