KILLED BY LIGHTNING. .
From our Correspondent,
It is with deep regrret that we have to record the death of John James Brooker (son of Mr. M. Brooker, of East Kangaloon), who was killed by lightning in the severe
storm that passed over the district on Friday afternoon last.

The District Coroner (Mr, A. D. Badgery) conducted an inquest on Saturday last at East Kangaloon, when the following evidence was given :—

Murdo Brooker being duly sworn, stated, that the deceased, John James Brooker, was 14 years old. For the past week he has been out at Kelly's Creek milking the cows, his brother was with him. Yesterday (14th) about 7 p.m., my son Herbert reported" to me that John James had been struck with lightning und killed at Kelly's Creek. I at once proceeded there and found him dead.

He had evidently been struck on the right side of the head, as a strip of hair 1/2 inch wide was completely. removed. There were marks of bruises on the chest, and his shirt and trousers were torn, and the boot was burst off the left foot. Afterwards I placed deceased's body in a vehicle and brought it home.

Herbert Murdo Brooker being duly sworn states : I am a son- of Murdo Brooker, and for the last week have been at Kelly's Creek with the deceased: yesterday (14th) about 5 p.m. deceased and I were milking ; there was a heavy thunderstorm at the time ;.he was sitting down milking : I was milking a few feet away ; I must have been unconscious for a time,perhaps an hour. I felt giddy when I woke ; I received an injury to my finger ; I,looked round me, and saw deceased lying down behind the cow ; the cow was lying dead in the bail; I tried to wake him, but found he was dead, I then carried him to the can house, and rode home and told my father ;

my father at once started for the scene of the accident. Some of the timber about the bail was split. The cow I was milking was singed about the hips and near foreleg.

The jury returned the following verdict; We find that the said J. J. Brooker, at Kelly's Creek, Berrima, N.S. W., on the 14th March, 1902, was accidentally killed by lightning.
