TERRIBLE ACCIDENT.—A little boy named Michael Cullinane, of Rathpeacon, was admitted to the North Infirmary yesterday, suffering from the effects of a severe burning. He was standing at the fire in his mother's house when his clothes caught fire, and he was severely burned about the body. He is at present in a precarious state, and faint hopes of his recovery are entertained.

DANCING BY ELECTRIC LIGHT.—A novelty has been introduced by a local club, particulars of which can be found in our advertising columns. It consists of a ball, given by electric light, in the assembly rooms. The light will, of course, be so shaded by tinted globes as to prevent injurious effects to the eyesight. We may add that the Colonel and officers of the 20th Regiment have given permission for the splendid band of the regiment to attend.

DR. DENIS O'FLYN.—The rumored retirement of the medical officer, of Ringaskiddy district, from this, the present field of his labours has caused much sorrow amongst the poor of this district, by whom he was much respected. Dr. Denis O'Flyn will long be remembered by the people of this district. He and his lady, carry with them the blessings of the inhabitants of this locality.

CORRECTION—In the list of donations for the poor of Glountane, published yesterday, the contribution of Mrs. Cotter, Factory-hill, should have been £2, instead of £1, as per manuscript list.

SKIBBEREEN PETTY SESSIONS.—At the weekly petty sessions the presiding justices were—Messrs. J. R. H. Becher, chairman ; R. B. Hungerford, H. R. Marmion, and G. Robinson. Mrs. Fitzmaurice made an application for warrant of arrest, upon information that would be sworn by Mrs. Margaret M'Carthy, of Lisangle, whose farmyard had been entered in the middle of the night, a shot fired, and some of her cattle driven away. She is the widow of the poor-law guardian who recently fell from his horse and was killed while returning from Ballydehob. Mr. Downes observed that it was a most unusual course. He would not like to be the magistrate who signed such a warrant. The bench decided on hearing the evidence. Mrs. Margaret M'Carthy, widow (sworn), said her farmyard had been entered into in the middle of the night, a shot was fired ; she got out of bed, and followed the party ; came up with them ; one of them turned around, she saw his face, and said, “I know you” ; it was Denis M'Carthy. Mr Collins, Petty Sessions Clerk, who had taken down the evidence, was directed by the bench to prepare a warrant for the arrest of Denis M'Carthy to issue on the information being sworn.—Adjourned.

PROCESS-SERVER'S TROUBLES IN QUEENSTOWN.—Yesterday a process-server named Butler applied to several of the carmen for conveyance to serve processes on the Great Island, but not one of them would drive him on his mission. The process-servers complained to the police of the cab-drivers' refusal.

HOME MADE BOOTS AND SHOES.—Ladies and Gentlemen wanting first-class Cork made Boots and Shoes to order from the very best Cork tanned Leather, and made by the best Cork workmen, at the lowest possible profit for cash, can have them at Carmody's Home-made Boot and Shoe Manufactory, 9, Tuckey-street, Cork. Perfect fitting guaranteed.

QUEENSTOWN PETTY SESSIONS.—At these sessions, yesterday, before J N Beamish and W R Starkie, R M, Mr James Demery, ship agent, summoned a tinker, named James Grady, to recover possession of two rooms in a house at Kinnear's-lane, Queen-street. A warrant to eject was granted. Adjourned.

   The most Fashionable Colour in Hair is that called cheveux de la Reine, a certain shade of ash blonde with a reflection of pale gold, and it is to be obtained by a few applications of “LAUGIER'S EAU ROMAINE D'OR.” This fashionable tint looks lovely when the hair is cut short all over the head, á la Titus, and dressed in the charming, graceful style which is now la mode. This colour requires a light coiffure, and the front hair should be made to form a kind of aureole of tiny vapoury curls over the forehead. For ornament, a large half-blown rose with two or three leaves, and no buds.—JOSEPH PIGOTT & SON, Court Hair Dressers, 36, Marlborough Street, Cork.

THE QUEENSTOWN LIFEBOAT.—The quarterly meeting of this branch was held yesterday at the Harbour Commissioners' room. Rear-Admiral Hamilton in the chair. The hon. sec. read a statement of the expenses for the quarter amounting to £16 19s. 10d., which was passed. Mr. R. U. Penrose Fitzgerald and Captain Usborne, R.N., were elected members of committee. Vice-Admiral J. R. Reed, Chief Inspector of Lifeboats, wrote saying he quite agreed with the views of the committee as to keeping the lifeboat in her present position. A letter was read from Captain W. D. Seymour, in which he said that, after re-considering about subscribing to the local lifeboat, he had decided to withhold. He thought the amounts forwarded to the parent society were far in advance of the expenses here, and, further, the lifeboat should be placed in a position other than where it is now stationed, so that she may be useful in saving life.

WEAK AND FALLING HAIR IS REMEDIABLE.—Pigott & Son's original preparation of Cantharidine is now acknowledged to be a specific in all cases where loss of hair has been considerable and baldness is imminent, or has actually commenced. It is not a mere “placebo,” but an active rubefacient, which slightly irritates the epidermis and stimulates the nerves of the head. It is the remedy of remedies for that tedious affection “alopecia circumscripta,” or baldness, which appears in the form of spots or patches, and it is the only reliable preventive of premature greyness. Price is 1s. 6d., 2s 6d. and 3s. 6d. per bottle. This preparation can only be had “genuine” direct from the proprietors and sole manufacturers, Joseph Pigott and Son, Coiffeurs and Perfumers, 36, Marlboro'-street, Cork.

We have never seen a larger or better stock of cheap Christmas Candles in fancy colour wax, &c., than at present in Mr. Stephen Bailey's, 44, Great George's- street. We would ask our reader to go and see them.
