The Barraba Murder. Barraba, Wednesday. A messenger from Burindi Station brought information at 2 o'clock this morning that the bank murderers' homes had been found, with their throats cut and the brands defaced, in the neighborhood of Burindi, about 14 miles from Barraba. A man has also been -seen, whose notions seem those of a madman, the waving of his arms frantically, ap parently leading to the belief that he is insane.   The police were watching the man closely, and only awaited daybreak to arrest him, as, no doubt, he must be well armed. The messenger who brought the news was a half-case called Harry Law. The man seen is a short man with a black beard. Later. The murderers also cut tho blaze from the horse's head in order to make it unrecognisable Sergeant M'Cabe has kept tho man in sight all night with the intention of arresting him at daybreak. He is now on his way to Barraba with the arrested suspect.

Peculiar Accident at a School. At recess time, 11 a.m., a peculiar ac cident, fortunately unattended with any serious cousequences, occurred at the Erskineville Public 'School. A   number of girls were in one of the outhouses, when the floor gave way and precipitated them to a pit about 6ft. deep beneath. The pit extended under tne wnoie or tne Duuaing, which was about 20ft. long, and was covered by a concrete floor supported by an iron girder. Tbe concrete completely   collapsed, and the girls, about 14 in number, were thrown into the filth, which filled the pit to the depth of 2ft. Help was immediately forth coming, and the majority, of the misfortunate children were immedi ately rescued from their somewhat dangerous position. One named Annie Wilson seemed to have been disabled, and was floating about face downwards when she was pulled out by one of the teachers. The child was unconscious, but Constables Hex and Johnson of the Newtown police, succeeded in...
