Third Attempt on Tingha Shops


An attempt was made last night to set fire to a drapery and grocery store at Tingha.

Sergt. Waters saw a light in the premises, and making investigations, saw a bundle of clothing burning near other inflammable articles which were soaked in kerosene, whilst a quantity of kerosene was also poured over the floor.

The sergeant managed to extinguish the flames before much damage was done.

This is the third time that shops in the main street of Tingha have been set alight.
