A Rascally Act. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 9 August 1881

A Rascally Act. On Tuesday morning last Mr. William McDowall, of DurranDurra, discovered that an old rotten tree in the only paddock be longing to him which contains any grass at the present time, bad been wilfully set on fire, and but for its being found in the nick of time would probably have done a deal of 'mischief. It bad burned to tho butt of the tree and was just igniting the gross when fortunately it was seen, and extinguished, j Fire raising is the most dastardly way of wreaking revenge , that can possibly be adopted, for when once started there is no knowing whereat may end, for it is a good servant, but a bad master. No punishment con be too severe for persons who are,guilty of incendiarism, aod it is to be hoped that the reward offered, in -this' instance, will have the effect of bringing the offender to justice.-Braidwood Dispatch. ! _
