WAVE OF HEAT IN NEW SOUTH WALES.

Sydney, November 21. 1897.

A wave of heat prevailed throughout the colony yesterday, and is ascribed to a monsoonal depression which has worked its way across the continent from the tropics. In Sydney the thermometer stood at 78.5deg. in the shade at 7 a.m.and steadily rose, until shortly after noon, when it recorded 99.4deg. The heat continued till 5 o’clock, when a "southerly buster" caused a fall of 24deg. in three hours. Several cases of sunstroke are recorded, but none have ended fatally.
