FATAL ACCIDENT AT BARRY ISLAND. A very serious accident, which has since proved fatal, occurred on Barry Island on Tuesday. Frederick Hawker, railway ganger, living at the farmhouse on the Island, got up at six o'clock on 'Tuesday morning, and lit the fire, before going to work, so as to warm the room for his little daugh- ter Mable Kate, aged five years, who has been poorly, to sit there. He then proceeded to work, and on his return found that his child had been very badly burned. Mrs. Hawker was engaged in her domestic duties, aud. hearing a scream, went "to the staircase, and saw her child's dress aflame. She extinguished the flames, and Dr. Neale and Dr. Gore were called in to dress the burns. Their services were of no avail, beyond alleviating the sufferer's pains, and on Wednesday afternoon the -child succumbed to its injuries.
