MINER OFFICE, 4 p.m.    

THE HEAT WAVE

Effects in Victoria,  

Suicide at Bendigo.

[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.
