Hi Found this newspaper article.

Barrier Miner (Broken Hill, NSW : 1888-1954) (about) < Wednesday 15 February 1922

"I AM SHOOTING MYSELF"
MESSAGE OVER TELEPHONE
POLICE FIND BOY'S DEAD- BODY
Melbourne, Wednesday.
"I am shooting myself for reasons unknown to anyone." When the tele- phone attendant at Dimboola received this message from Frank Maddox (15),a farm hand employed at Dollamallee, Victoria, yesterday for delivery to the boy's employer, who was passing through the town, he told him not to be foolish and that he could , not deliver such a message. The speaker replied: "You give it to him," and then rang off. .
The police hurried to the farm and found the boy dead in front of the house with a pea rifle wound in forehead.

Kind regards
Tania
