Some few weeks back the premises of Mr. W. R. Johnston were burglarised, and suspicion was cast upon two young residents of the town, who were searched, as also was their residence. Nothing further was done at the time, but I have been informed that they have since been summoned to appear next Friday (on what specific charge I cannot say) which seems to me somewhat peculiar (Mudgee Guardian and North-Western Representative, Friday 17 March 1899, page 15).

RYLSTONE NEWS A Trophy. - Mr. W. . R. Johnston has presented a very fine bat to the Rylstone CC. as a trophy. Will has many calls upon him, but he invariably manages to satisfy them all. By the way, our artist of the strop has removed his saloon into a much larger and more commodious room in the front of the shop, and has had it fitted up with up-to-date requirements, which enables him to give customers the best of attention (Mudgee Guardian and North-Western Representative, Thursday 21 December 1905, page 11).
