A most pitiful case of death from exposure to the present bad weather has just occurred in Norsewood. A settlers wife named Mrs JACOBSEN, who lived on a lonely section half a mile distant from any other house, went out on Monday afternoon to look for a cow, leaving four very young children in the house, with directions not to leave it until she returned, as she would not be away long. The father works away from home, and only returns occassionally. It was quite by chance that another settler, also looking for cattle, happened to call at the house on Tuesday afternoon, and found the poor little children in a state of the widest alarm at the protracted absence of their mother. He immediately instituted a search party and over two hundred people were in the bush on Tuesday night searching in every direction. Yesterday morning the dead body of the unfortunate woman was discovered only about six or seven chain from her home. She had evidently been dead for some time. The event has created a profound sensation in Norsewood, where the unfortunate woman was well known.
An inquest will be held on Thursday.

From a Correspondent Waipawa
An extraordinary occurence has happened. The coroner has just (7pm) received a wire from the Registrar of Deaths &c at Norsewood requesting to have a doctor sent at once as the friends of the late Mrs JACOBSEN refuse to bury her, having noticed signs of life since the inquest.

An accident occurred at HOLT's timber yard on Wednesday, not considered at the time serious, but that unfortunately resulted fatally yesterday. A youth named Stephen DRYDEN, engaged in shifting timber from the stacks in the yard to the mill, found it difficult to remove a plank that had got jammed. He endeavoured to lift the plank clear by giving it a jerk, but in doing so unfortunately ruptured himself internally. He did not consider himself seriously injured, although he experienced pain sufficient to cause him to cease work. He was assisted to the Caledonian hotel, where he was at once attended by dr DE LISLE and later Dr KEYWORTH, both doctors pronouncing the case one of serious rupture. The injured youth suffered great pain during the first part of the time after the accident, but became unconscious before his death, which took place yesterday. Deceased was about 19 years of age at the time of his death, and a very promising young man
