BOY'S STRANGE ATTEMPT.
ARREST AT BRUNSWICK.
John McColl is 16 years of age, a big boy
for his age, and with too much imagina-
tion. He is the son of a plumber, and
work to his father's jobs. But plumbing
had no fascination for him; he longed to go
about the country with a bioscope; making
heaps of money, and seen new scenes
every day. He went about it in such an
extra ordinary way (a way probably sug-
gested by the adventurous books he admits
having read), that he will appear before the
City Court to-day, where Detective
Hawkins will ask for a remand. The error
of his ways will then be pointed out to him
at the Children's Court.
Mr. J. J. Forster is a well-known dentist
in Swanston-street, and lives in Drummond-
street, Carlton. On the last day of June he
received the following letter:—
Dear Sir, –Just a line to order you to send me
£50 for a time being, as I know you have more
then you can spend. You had better not ask or
tell the police saw detectives or anyone else, for I
will have you watched, and if you do a bullet or
a bomb may be shot at you, for it is better to lose
£50 then to lose your life. If you accept my
terms you must put in Saturday' 'Age,' in the
lost and found (I will accept them), and I will
forward you a line, letting you know how and
where to send them. If you don't, beware, and
oblige me, and I know when and to you. Don't for-
get not to give it to the police, and no harm
will come to you. On the other hand there
will."

LEVEL-CROSSING FATALITY.
Arthur Bertram Williams, aged 61 years,
of Box Hill, formerly of Waverley, met his
death under tragic circumstances on Tues-
day afternoon. He was returning from
Bayswater in a four-wheeled covered-in
vehicle and in going over the level-crossing
about half a mile distant from Ringwood
station was unfortunately overtaken by the
2.50 up-train from Ferntree Gully, which
dashed into the waggon, throwing the occu-
pant out with only a yard of the rails.
Driver Polglase, who was in charge, in-
stantly pulled up the train, and a messen-
ger was dispatched to the police at Ring-
wood. On Constable Bray's arrival, Wil-
liams. whose head and chest were severely
crashed, was immediately taken to the
Coach Horses Hotel, and afterwards re-
moved to the Morgue. The waggon was
smashed to matchwood, and the horse,
which miraculously got clear of the engine,
escaped with barely a scratch. Williams
was a hard-working and industrious man,
and leaves a wife and family.
The railway crossing where the fatality oc-
curred is particularly dangerous, several nar-
row escapes having been experienced their.
Not long ago an elderly gentleman was
driving in a buggy, when the vehicle was
struck by a passing train, and the driver
escaped through being thrown into the
cattle-pit.
