A Double Tragedy.

A terrible double tragedy occurred at Nel's Rust, near Maritzburg, on Tuesday, the victims being two well-known farmers, Reginald and Evelyn MALCOLM, sons of Donald MALCOLM, of Hielands, Nel's Rust, aged 36 and 35 years respectively.  Evelyn, who had been shell-shocked and wounded at Delville Wood, went to his room and refused to come out for his meals.  Shortly after lunch his brother went in to see him, and immediately afterwards the native boy in the kitchen heard a shot.  Going to investigate be found Reginald lying in the passage, shot through the body, and, rushing to report the matter to Evelyn, was just in time to see the other brother fall, shot through the body.  He had a shot gun in his hands.  By the time help had been summoned, both brothers were dead.  They are said to have been the greatest of friends, and there appears to have been no quarrel between them.

A Wireless Tragedy.
A pathetic story was told at the inquest concerning the death of Mary, the three-year-old daughter of James BOYD, a Customs officer at Port Elizabeth.  Giving evidence, the father, who is a wireless enthusiast, described how on Monday afternoon last the little girl followed him to his wireless room.  He did not take any notice of her until he looked around and saw that she had upset some cyanide of potassium over herself.  It was contained in jars in a box and was standing on a packing case.  Witness immediately caught hold of his daughter and telling her not to swallow and to spit, ran to the bath with her.  He turned the tap on and endeavoured to was the cyanide off, and then took the child to her mother.  He got some salt water and milk, in order to try to make the child vomit.  He went to the Government veterinary surgeon’s office and asked him to phone for a doctor.  Several doctors were tried but none was available, so the child was taken  to the hospital, where she died the same day.  A verdict of death due to asphyxiation was returned.

Phone Camp Tragedy.
Another drowning fatality occurred at Umzimhlava River on Sunday morning, near a slippery drift.  The victim, G. HALLBECK, a European of the telephone construction camp, went bathing with two comrades, HARDWICK and TAYLOR.  HALLBECK wore an old pair of trousers and boots, and went in first to test the depth, wading out until the water reached his armpits.  A second later he disappeared, then came to the surface shouting for help.  HARDWICK swam to his assistance, but was pulled under by the drowning man on two occasions, until obliged to loose his hold, and HALLBECK sank for the last time.  A youth named BRAMFIELD dived and secured the body two hours later.  A series of drowning fatalities have occurred lately near the same place.
