    On Friday last a little girl, three years of age, named Isabel Gilpin, daughter of a resident of Beaconsfield, met with her death on account of severe injuries received through her clothes catching fire. The youngster was playing at a clearing-off fire in a paddock, and before her father could reach her she was badly burned, so much so that she expired in the train at Berwick while being conveyed to the Children's Hospital.5
