SHOCKING SEASIDE FATALITY. -0- A Lady Drowned. Much regret was expressed at Mordialloc and surrounding district on Tuesday, when the news was spread that Mrs Annie Crooke, wife of Mr Crooke, racehorse owner and trainer, had been drowned whilst bathing about 11 o'clock. Mrs Crooke and her family usually resided at Chapel-street, St. Kilda, but they were spending a few days at the seaside, and occupied a house on the Frankston road, about two miles and a half from Mordialloc, and not far from the stables where Mr Crooke and his partner, Mr Whittingham train their racehorses. Mrs Crooke and her sons, aged fourteen and eleven, and a youth named Patrick O'Dea, aged fourteen, went to the beach on Tues day morning, and Mrs Crooke proceeded to take a bath, but had not been long in the water, it is said, when she was apparently seized with cramps, and sank. Her son gave the alarm, and Mr Crooke ran to the place, and plunged in among the breakers to the rescue, but became exhausted, and was c...

WeV were dining at 8 o'clock on the. eve of the hunt, when an Arab came in hot haste to tell us that a panther had that very day at sunset carried off a goat close by under the nose of the shepherd, and that the animal had been seen to disappear in a ravine. Idid not stop to finish my dinner, but although the night was dark and unfavorable, at once prepared to set off.

I name this circumstance, as it will be seen I thereby saved my.life. On arriving at the Arab douar near the ravine, the Arabs conducted me to a spot about four hundreds yards off, on the edge of a broad and deep gorge, saying, "L The panther is in.the gorge, wait here and you'll ,be sure to see her." They chose a little group of bushes exactly suited to my purpose, and I'placed myself, having the ravi...
