SYDNEY, November 23.

While a party of 30 students was holding a picnic at Dangar Falls, near Armidale, New South Wales, yesterday, Isabel Moore (15) daughter of Mr. W. Moore, of the Armidale Telegraph Office staff, fell over a precipice, and rolled 400 feet down the gorge. Four hours elapsed before a relief party was able to rescue the girl who was unconscious. She is in hospital in a critical condition.
