DEATH OF MR. JOHN BUR- BOWS. Mr. John Burrows, a very old resi-   dent of the Ipswich district, died at his residence, Ferguson-street, North Ips- which, yesterday afternoon.

It appears that be tween 6 p.m. and 7 p.m, on Staturday last a picnic was being held on the banks of the Brisbane River, in one of the reaches adjacent to the town of Lowood, when the grim Reaper Death, using the merciless waters as his in- strument, claimed as victims Miss Dorothy Ellen Board, aged 16, a   daughter of Mr. L. G. Board, of the Lands Department, Brisbane, and who was a guest of Colonel J. F. Flewell Smith, of Lowood; and Master Ste- phen Flewell-Smith, 17 years of age, a son of Colonel Flewell-Sm...

Horrible Accident. SAILOR'S LEGS SEVERED BY ROPE. Melbourne, December 30.     A horrible accident occurred to-day     on board the Ozone, by which an able     seaman named George Davies, had     both his legs cut off below the knee.

Exactly   how the accident occurred is not     known, the main fact being that by   some means or other a 6 in Manila mooring rope got between Davies' legs,   and tightening under some unexplain- able strain, cut them off. His condi- tion is critical. Davies...
