Thursday Nov. 3rd. 1887
A most distressing accident which ended fatally, happened at
Mitre Lake last Sunday, to a son of Mr. M. SMITH. The poor
little fellow fell into a vessel of hot water, being severely burned
about the body and legs. Medical advice was speedily obtained
but without avail, the little sufferer lingering until Tuesday morning,
when death resulted. Much sympathy is felt for the parents in
The Minimay school after having been without a permanent teacher
for some months, has at last had it's want supplied. On Monday
last Miss DENNIS from Coleraine took charge from Mr. BURKE
of the relieving staff.
