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.
