Dunedin, August 4. The Dunedin Jockey Club have received ' nineteen nominations for the Champion Stakes at the coursing meeting, forty-eight for the Maiden' Stakes and twenty-seven for the Sapling Stakes. A young girl named Susannah Dreaver, fourteen years of age, was received into the Dunedin Hospital on Sunday, suffering from a rather serious wound m the head, by which her skull was fractured. It appears from what can be gathered that Mrs Dreaver, the mother of the girl, who resides m Howe street, was annoyed by the conduct of her daughter m laughing at her, and m her anger seized a garden hoe and struck her daughter on the head, inflicting a wound some two inches long, which fractured the skull. The girl when she reached the hospital was m a semi-unconscious # state. She is not regarded as being m a critical state, though there is danger that the injury may prove serious. Under the circumstances, the police deemed it desirable to arrest Mrs Dreaver, and she was lodged m the Maclapgan street station.
