SCAB IN SHEEP. [Newspaper Article] — The Manaro Mercury, and Cooma and Bombala Advertiser — 3 April 1863

SCAB IN SHEEP. CFrom the Weekly Smpvn.) ' A degree of excitement, almost amounting to ft panic, has been .caused by tbe intelli gence that the destructive disease known as scab had agaiu broken out amongst the flocks of the polony. Some attempts have been made to allay tbe alarm. It has been asserted that the sheep, after lonfc subsisting poorly upon dry food, during the heat of summer, and then being suddenly surfeited .with fresh green grass, have become affected with a disorder quite susceptible of easy remedy ; and it has been urged that the pro visions of the Scab Act ought to be sus pended, in order to afford owners an oppor tunity of effecting a cure. But it must be remembered that the utmost precaution is uecessary in a case of this kind, involving as it does the spread of destruction amongst the great source of pastoral wealth. It is quite true that, under the circumstances men tioned, sheep are liable to a pustulous dis order which may b*e mistaken for scab, but which may ...

FATAL ACCIDENTS FROM WEARING CRINOLINE. (From the Some Newt.) The death of Mrs. Grant, widow of the late Colonel Grant, of the Indian army, lias just been caused by an accident arising from the use of crinoline. The facts of this case came under the notice of the corouer for Central Middlesex, on December 30. It appeared [hat oo Christmas Day, about 11 o'clock, Mrs. Grant was sitting in the drawing-room of a house in Hereford-road, Westbourne Grove, where she resided, when, on turning round to look at a bird which was flying abont 'the apartment, the hack of her dress caught fire. At first she endeavoured to cut off the burning clothes; hot, being unable to do so, she raised an alarm. The sister of the owner of tbe'honse at once went to her assistance, but not before nearly the entire of her clothing had been consumed. Mrs. Elizabeth Edwards, the lady of the honse, entered the rcom in two or three minutes after her sister, whom she found much burnt in consequence of her efforts to s...
