A BCQRT TRAGEDY. Foui Murder. Ends With Lysol. Religion has given us an open door policy. Science has attemp ted to block it, but failed. What, then, are we people of this world to think of what happened at Boort last evening ?

A mate of the shooter,, named Christie, was alongside; ! and the murderer said : " Get i out of 4he road, I'm going to shoot Coutts !" Coutts replied : "Go away ; don't be a fool."

Coutts got down from the buggy and was walking away, when Appleby strode be hind the vehicle. Appleby fired at Coutts, and the bullet lodged in-the latter's shoulder. He stag gered away, and Christie came to his assistance, but Appleby fol lowed to a shed near by, and again put thegun to Coutt's head, blowing away part of the left skul...

They practically outline our statements of last issue, and finish thusly:— "Extension works at Korong Vale are well on the way towards completion, and the Commission ers will have to look about for a fresh hedge to take shelter under. The conditions at Korong Vale, however, would never in terfere with the faster running of trains to and beyond that sta tion.
