There was strong smell of carbolic acid in the room. he applied the stomach pump, washing his stomach out with oil and warm water, afterwards pumping in beaten up white of eggs. He washed out the stomach several times and each time the fluid smelt of carbolic acid. Deceased died while the witness was present
Catherine FOX - wife of the deceased - stated that he was in his 52nd year when he died. He had changed for the worst since he was appointed administrator of the Charitable Aid, wishing that he had never accepted the appointment. When a Sgt in the 14th Regiment he was wounded in the head and due to the effects of the wound that he got excited when he took a little drink. Sometimes he had to be restrained from injuring himself or others. He had been drinking on the preceeding evening. He was very excited, throwing things at the witness. A small bottle ( containing carbolic acid) was taken from him. His three sons had to strap him to the bed. Later in the evening he was unrestrained and started to speak rationally.

Waipawa - Aug 03
A son of Sgt O'MALLEY , while playing at the district school today, was accidentally kicked in the head by a horse, resulting in a very nasty wound.

The enquiry into a dispute between the head teacher of Waipukurau district school, Mr ANDERSON and a pupil teacher, Miss Maud L. ARROW, took place at Waipukurau last night before the committe - Messrs WILDING ( Ch), JONES, PALMER, ROBINSON & P. BARRIE. There were about 30 parents present. The head teacher complained of insubordination on the part of Miss ARROW and complaining of impertinent remarks being scribbled on one of her school books. Mr ARROW wished to represent his daughter, but this was not allowed. A letter from Miss ARROW was read, rebutting the charge of insubordination and explaining that the scribbling was the work of her elder sister. After reading the letter, Mr ARROW was allowed to make a statement on behalf of his daughter and Mr ANDERSON replied. Finally Mr ARROW apologised on behalf of his daughter. The committee retired for over an hour and returned with the opinion that pupil teachers were responsible for the condition of their books and that an apology was due by Miss ARROW to Mr ANDERSON. The Chairman intimated that an apology drafted by the committee had been signed by Miss ARROW and had been accepted by the head teacher.

Wairoa
The widow of an old settler named Martin WINTER, who died a few days ago, made an application for relief as by her husbands death, she was left unprovided for. Mrs MIDDLETON of Frasertown, also applied for charitable aid on the ground that her husband had deserted her. It was decided that the police should be instructed to compel the latter to look after his wife and that the Chairman of the Council should take the necessary steps for the relief of the widow


Yesterday our attention was called to another instance of the unsatisfactory administration of the Napier Hospital under Dr KEYWORTH. The wife of an Awatoto settler brought into town a girl eight years old, suffering apparently from paralysis and applied to Mr MARGOLIOUTH for an order of admission to the hospital. Mr MARGOLIOUTH went to MR M.R. MILLER and obtained an order, with which the mother presented herself at the institution. Dr KEYWORTH curtly refused to admit the child, saying that she was too young- though if a child of eight is too young, it is a puzzle to know why the children's ward was erected. The mother pleaded and at last Dr KEYWORTH said " Well, you'll have to carry her in yourself" and this was done.Next day the child died of tetanus, but the parents received no formal notification of the fact, and would of remained in ignorance of it had not Mr MAHON telephoned to the railway station and asked that any children going to Awatoto might be asked to convey the information. Comment is needless

Mr J. BARTLE who was recently committed to the Wellington Asylum for lunacy, leaves a wife and family in Napier, entirely unprovided for. He was a very sober and industrious man, a painter by trade, but had been for sometime prior to his seizure out of employment. His lunacy, in fact, was largely if not entirely brought about by brooding over his inability to obtain work, and the consequent anxiety due to running into debt for the necessaries of life. His wife has 5 children, only one of whom is old enough to help her in any way --------- more ( asking for aid)

Two most disgraceful exhibitions of rowdyism occured in Napier on Saturday. The first instance - A drunken man, John M'LEOD, knocked off the bonnet of Mrs MEREDITH. Constable CULLEN arrested him, M'LEOD resisted most violently, stricking and kicking the constable, tearing his clothes. Sgt Major O'GRADY arrived and the prisoner was conveyed to the lock up. A large crowd assembled and the police were hustled and hooted at.
Later in the evening the Sydney footballers were leaving Criterion, when one of them made a remark to the effect " New Zealand was no ------------ good ". A man named DORMER struck the Sydney man. Const GANTLEY arrested DORMER, who resisted viciously. The crowd gathered around and some of these people encouraged DORMER to resist. Const PARDY then arrived and assisted by some respectable citizens Const GANTLEY handcuffed him. The crowd grew denser and by this time the police and prisoner were surronded by about 600 people. Sgt Major O'GRADY, Const LAWLESS & CALLAN arrived and having to submit to being struck, hustled, pelted and hooted, they managed to get their man to the lock up

Clive Correspondent
A narrow escape from drowning occured in the Ngaruroo River, near the bridge at Clive about 11 am yesterday. Two of Joseph FROON's children, a boy and a girl aged respectively 10 & 8 years were out in the river in a small boat, on the upper side of the bridge and while conversing with some other children standing on the bridge the boat struck the bridge. The boat soon filled and began to sink. The boy very pluckily held his sister above water and being an expert swimmer succeeded in keeping them both afloat until they were swept by the current about 400 yards down the river. Becoming exhausted he had to let his sister go and the little girl sank. Upon seeing this, the boy, with great courage, dived after his sister and brought her to the surface and kept her up a short time, when, however they both went down. By this time a crowd of men, women and children had gathered on the riverbank and their shouts and screams were terrific. Not one could swim, nor could a boat be got( except one without oars). Their noise attracted the attention of a fisherman, William CROSS, who was some distance down the river and fearing something was wrong he and Peter THOMPSON rowed up the river and just in time to pick up the children as they came to the surface together. The girl seemed very little to worse for the ducking but the boy was very weak for a considerable time. However with the application of some restoratives ( principally spirits) the lad was brought around
