5251 Woman dead in house fire

An 87-year-old woman was burned to death in a house fire at Fairymead yesterday.
She was Mrs Emma Harriett Ann McIntyre, mother of the resident minister at Fairymead.
Bundaberg Fire Brigade was called at 1.25 pm.
When firemen arrived, the weatherboard house was ablaze. There was nothing they could do to save it.

Too fierce

Firemen were informed that there was an elderly lady still in the house, but the fire was too fierce for them to enter.
Mrs McIntyre's body was recovered later.
About 3000 gallons of water was poured on the flames from the brigade's main tanker.
Fairymead volunteer firemen used auxiliary pumps from tanks at the rear of the premises, before Bundaberg firemen arrived. The[y] pumped about 2000 gallons of water.
Bundaberg Fire Chief, Mr A Binnie, said later that the Fairymead men had done "a good job".
He said a shortage of water had hampered the firemen.
The home was owned by Fairymead Sugar Co Ltd and was insured.
Mr Binnie said he thought the fire might have started from an electric heater.
Mrs McIntyre's son was absent at Mt Perry at the time.

5281 Words inscribed on the reverse of the medal:
Presented in the name of His Majesty to ETHEL ALDERSON, widow of Lance Corporal George Alderson, Durham Light Infantry, in recognition of the gallantry of the deceased, who lost his life in France on the 14th October 1915, in saving the lives of others.

[In January 2006, the medal in the possession of Ronald Philip Hennings, of Box Hill, Victoria, Australia, grandson of George Alderson]

14 October 1915: Lance Corporal George Alderson, 10th Durham Light Infantry. At B Camp, St Jans ter Biezen near Poperinge. Alderson, with two other non-commissioned officers, was moving some bombs into a room in a farmhouse where they were to be stored. While the bombs were being stacked, one of them fell to the floor and the percussion cap was fired. Alderson, knowing that the bomb would explode in four seconds, and that to throw it out of the window would endanger the men who were outside, picked it up and tried to reach the door. Before he could get out of the door the bomb exploded, blowing off his hand and inflicting other serious wounds, from which he shortly died. By his prompt action in picking up and carrying the bomb he probably saved the lives of the three men who were in the room with him, and by his presence of mind in not throwing it out of the window he certainly saved the lives of those standing outside. This act was the more meritorious as Alderson was fully aware of the deadly nature of the bomb and the danger to himself that his act involved. He died of his wounds and is buried in Lijssenthoek Military Cemetery. Albert Medal First Class.

DEATH OF MAJOR EDMOND LOCKYER.-We regret to announce the demise of Major Edmund Lockyer - Usher of the Black Rod in the Legislative Council. He had been suffering from the prevailing epidemic, and his friends thought him just on the eve of recovery. At the time of his death he was seated in his arm-chair. The transition from life to death was so free from physical suffering, that he was believed to be asleep, when the attention of his relatives was first attracted by what they believed to be merely a slate of quiescence. Major Lockyer was esteemed by all who knew him for his urbanity and gentlemanly bearing. The funeral will move from the residence of the deceased gentleman, Bay-street, Woolloomooloo, to-morrow at 10 a.m.
