Julius George Raphael (1872–1899)

from Sydney Morning Herald

The Tamworth Observer gives particulars of a fatal accident that happened on January 2 to Mr. Julius George Raphael, chemist and druggist, of Manilla. At the local racecourse two jockeys were injured through their horses falling, and Mr. Raphael, wishing to render what assistance lay in his power, borrowed a horse for the purpose of riding to his dispensary to get some bandages. The horse was a spirited one, and while it was travelling at a fast pace took fright and threw its rider. He alighted on his head against a fence, and sustained such serious injuries that death soon resulted. The event cast a gloom over the town. The deceased gentleman, who lived with his sisters at the Manilla dispensary, had not been very long a resident, having come from Warialda during the past year. Within that short time, however (says our contemporary), he had proved himself in various ways to be a worthy man, and he had endeared himself to a large circle of friends. The deceased was the only son of Mrs. E. M. Raphael-Rosenthal, of Mariola, Stanmore, and grandson of the late J. G. Raphael. The funeral, which was largely attended, took place on Thursday, January 5, Rabbi Davis giving an eloquent and touching address on the sadness of the accident and the estimable qualities of Mr. Raphael. He was interred in the freehold ground of the Raphael family at Rookwood.
