FATAL GUN ACCIDENT'AT CASTLEREAGH. [By Telegraph]
(FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT) PENRITH, Friday.
A sad case of shooting occurred at Castlereagh last night. A lad named Victor Hadley, about 15 years of age, went shooting, and did not return last night. At first no notice was taken of his absence, as he had previously remained the night with his grand-parents, who resided near the banks of the Nepean. As, however, he did not return this morning, inquiries were made and a search instituted, when it was found that a boat had been taken from the east to the west side of the Nepean, and was still there. A party went across and found the lad lying near the boat quite dead, with a shot-wound in the breast. It is presumed the gun went off when he was getting out of the boat. The matter was reported to the coroner.

PAINFUL SCALDING ACCIDENT.
While engaged hanging a pot on a crane in a fireplace the other day Mrs. William Carman met with a painful scalding accident. It appears that the handle of the fountain broke when the second vessel was being hung on, the result being that Mrs Carman was severely scalded about the leg and foot. The scald, though not dangerous, is very painful.

OBITUARY - Mrs. Mary Starr
Residents of Cudal and district were shocked to hear of the passing of Mrs. Mary Starr, one of the most respected residents, at the age of 74 years. Mrs. Starr was a daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. William Carman, a pioneer family of this district. She married Mr. William Starr, a member of another pioneering family of this district, and had resided for the whole of her married life on a property joining her parents property. There were no children from the union. The late Mrs. Starr was a tireless worker for all worthy causes, amongst them being the Red Cross and the C.W.A. branch. Her church work was an inspiration to her fellow workers, and the Mothers' Union and St. James Church of England will be the poorer for her passing. Her charming personality will be very much missed by her fellow church workers and many friends. The Rector of the Parish, the Rev. A. R. Balchin, paid tribute to her many excellent qualities and counted it a privilege to know and work with such a shining example of womanhood. To her sorrowing husband and her brothers, Alvin (Trangie) and Victor (Katoomba) and her sister, Mrs. Syd Taylor, of Orange, and other
relatives is extended a very deep sympathy. The remains were laid to rest in the Church of England portion of the Cudal cemetery, after a service at St. James' Church of England, conducted by the Rev. A. R. Balchin, McGraths, of Orange, had charge of the mortuary arrangements.
