Mr. M. KIELY'S crop had a narrow escape from being burnt on Tuesday last, the flames coming within a hundred yards, and had it not been for the timely assistance rendered by the neighbours and townspeople the fire would have got into the crop and spread through miles of well grassed country. It is supposed that the fire started through phosphorised wheat which had been laid for rabbits that morning in the adjoining scrub. It is high time that this absurd practise was abandoned.
