The Ballarat Times

Hi there readers! Today’s post is about the newspapers in the Australian gold rush. In Ballarat to be precise. Here’s the Ballarat times, written by me, edited by me, printed by the computer!

GOLD NUGGET FOUND!

 June 10,-Eureka! That’s what I’ve been hearing of lately. James Norm, owner of a little shack, is now the owner of a big and beautiful nugget! It was the size of his palm. He was so full of happiness when he found the nugget. When he came out of the mine shaft, he had tears of joy running down his face. He exchanged the gold nugget for 656 pounds. Although today, all his money was stolen. The troopers still don’t know who stole it, as they are planning a holiday trip to Melbourne. James Norm also committed suicide today by jumping down a 400 feet mine shaft. His wife says that today has been a tragedy for her family. She said the tragedy was that the money was stolen, not that her husband committed suicide. She had only been married for a year and 6 months and has a child.  

Thanks for reading this post!
