"Spectator" - Wednesday June 28, 1865 INQUEST - An inquest was held on the 22nd at Digby, by Dr Radford, on the body of John McCallum, who died from the effects of a burn. It seemed the deceased was about seven years of age, and got up to light the fire in the kitchen very early on the morning of the 2nd. The father, who was in bed, hearing screams, got up and found the poor boy in flames. He tore off the dress and applied oil, and flour to the wounds, and then sent for Dr Inverarity. He soon arrived and attended to the burns, and administered stimulants. He considered the extensive nature of the burns rendered the case hopeless from the first. The child died the next day from the shock. Verdict accordingly.
