The consequence was that a spark fell into a tin holding a good quantity of powder, which exploded in his fane, causinsr his hair to be set ablaze, ant his face somewhat 'disfigured.

LIVE STOCK LOSSES. [Newspaper Article] — Albury Banner and Wodonga Express — 21 February 1896
LIVE STOCK LOSSES. Serious as are the figures showing the estimated losses of live stock in the colony during last year, they do nob in any way take us by surprise. The fact that ? our wool clip showed a shrinkage of about 15 per cent, prepared us for a very large redaction in the number of our sheep. We now learn from the estimate' .of the Stock Department thab the sheep popula tion of the colony was diminished during the year by no less than 9^ milliojss, or 16*7 per cent. Unfortunately^ this loss followed on a period of loss extending over 1891-93, during whieh our flocks were reduced by nearly five millions. Thus the total loss since 1891 is over 14 millions. This is a sad state of disaster, arid also of suffering. ? .
