THE HEAT WAVE.

Effects in Victoria.   [BY TELEGRAPH.]          

MELBOURNE, Friday.        

Yesterday's heat increased to 108   degrees in the shade by 3 p.m. At 5 o'clock a storm burst and there was   a heavy rainfall, but it did not cool the atmosphere. To-day it is again     exceedingly oppressive, and another storm is brewing.  

The heat in the country yesterday was excessive. At Bridgewater and   Donald 112 degrees in the shade was registered ; at Hopetoun, 113 ; at Ru- panyup, 114; at Swan Hill, 116 ; at Bendigo, 110.

At the latter, place a young man   named Edward Swift, hairdresser, was so overcome by the heat that he was unable to work, and in despair shot himself in the breast. It is a hopeless

case.
