    FATAL ACCIDENT AT,A VINEYARD.
    TWO MEN SUFFOGATED IN A VAT.
    A sad accident happened at, the Great Western this afternoon, resulting in the death of a young man named Nicholas Trouotte, tho son of the late Jean Pierre Trouette , of St. Poter's vineyard, and a Frenchman mamed Cobie. It appears that a young man named Thompson, together with the two deceased, were engaged in cleaning out an underground vat, which had the previous year been filled with husks. Last week the vat, which is about 15ft. deep and 8ft. in diameter, was emptied to within 18m. of the bottom, and this afternoon, the men commenced to complete the work of emptying it. For this purpose Thompson descended the Vat, but was immediately overpowered by the fumes at the bottom. Trouette, who was on the surface, noticing this, descended to rescue the lad, but had only just time to tie a rope round his waist and order those on the top to pull up when he himself was overcome, and fell prostrate. Cobie, who was on the surface, gave the alarm, and were engaged in cleaning out an underground vat, which had the previous year been filled with husks. Last week the vat, which is about 15ft. deep and 8ft. in diame- ter, was emptied to within 18m. of the bottom, and this afternoon, the men commenced to complete the work of emptying it. For this purpose Thompson descended the Vat, but was immediately overpowered by the fumes at the bottom. Trouette, who was on tho surface, noticing this, descended to rescue the lad, but had only just time to tie a rope round his waist and order those on the top to pull up when he himself was overcome, and fell prostrate. Cobie, who was on the surface, gave the alarm, and pulled up Thompson, who was insensible. Miss Trouette carne rushing up, and wanted to descend, when Cobie tied a rope round her waist and let her down, but she was shortly after drawn up insensible. Cobie then descended for the purpose of rescuing Trouotte, but before aid could be oobtained, he was also lying holpless at the bottom of the vat. As soon as possible tho bodies were raised to the surface by Constable Mooney, and Dr. Jack, of Stawell, was sent for, but when he arrived life was extinct. An Inquest will be held tomonow.
