      CHILD SUCCUMBS TO BURNS.
      Doris Maude Curry, infant daughter
      of Mr. Thomas Joseph Curry, of Hope's
      Creek, near Oberon, who accidentally
      sustained injuries through burning, has
      succumbed. It appears that the deceas
      ed was left in the kitchen with her
      young brother, aged three years, whilst
      the mother was engaged outside feed
      ing fowls. Therewas an open fire in
      the Kitchen at which the child's' cloth-
      ing caught fire, after which the two
      children ran to the front door of the
      house, and by their cries attracted
      their mother's attention. Mrs. Curry
      ran to the assistance of tho child,
      took her in her arms and immediately
      wrapped a 'blanket round the child
      with the object of extinguishing the
      burning clothing. A realtive named
      George Roberts who was riding past at
      the time, was attracted by the cries
      and smoke issuing from the front door.
      He assisted the mother in rendering
      first aid, and subsequently conveyed
      the sad news to the child's father, who
      was engaged at Tillsbury about four
      or five miles distant. The' father re
      turned with all haste, and upon seeing
      the condition of the child at once con
      veyed her in a sulky to Oberon, where
      she was rendered every possible atten
      tion by Dr. E. E. Griffiths .Upon' ar-
      rival at the doctor's surgery, the child
      was found to have extensive burns
      about the face, abdomen, and legs, and
      to be suffering very much from shock.
