ACCIDENT.—A little boy named James Stevens, aged five years, residing with his parents in Hunter- street, had a very narrow escape from meeting with an untimely end, on Tuesday morning. It appears that the boy, with otherschool children, had just left the Board School, and was proceeding home. When near Vere-street a truck Belonging to the Barry Company, driven by a man named Catherines, came down the hill. The boy crossed in front of the horse, which, being frightened, jumped aside and knocked the child down. Before the driver could stop the horse the wheel had passed near the child's head, inflicting several gashes and bruises. A man Burns stopped the horse at once and took the child to Dr. Treharne, who at once saw that no bones were broken or serious injury done. Dr. Gore after- wards attended the child at his home. The little chap is doing well. Not the slightest blame can be attached to the driver of the truck. The horse was a fresh one and of rather a spirited nature, and it is a matter for thankfulness that the injuries were not of almore severe description. BARRY AND CADOXTON FOOTBALL CLUB.—The committee of the Barry and Cadoxton Cricket Club held a meeting on Tuesday night, 5th inst., at the Witchill Hotel, Cadoxton, Mr. J. F. Williams in the chair.

The Chairman read a letter which ihad been handed in, and bearing the signatures of a considerable number of ratepayers, requesting the Board at an early date to call a public meeting of the ratepayers for the pur- pose of taking steps to divide the district into four wardsT The clerk was not sure that the Board could call a meeting for the purpose. The clerk was re- quested to confer with the gas company, asking them to appoint some of their staff to collect their Penarth quarterly accounts at Penarth, and thus spare the consumers the cost and waste of time in having to go to Cardiff to pay their accounts. BOAT CLUB RACE.-On Saturday afternoon a very exciting sailing race took place off Penarth. The fol- lowing boats competed-Oof Bird (Mr. Batchelor), Doris (Captain Corfield), Kitty (Mr. Heitzman), Jab- berwok (Mr. Edwards), and Edith (Mr. Ashford). The course was twice round the Hook, middle and west Cardiff Buoys, and back to the boathouse. The wind after the first round lulled considerably, and, in consequence, Mr. Ashford and Captain Corfield Lrave up the race. The other boats continued, and finished the race shortly after eight o'clock in the following order :-lst, Kittie, 7h. 50min. 25sec.; 2nd, Jabberwok, 8h. 3min. 50sec.; 3rd, Oof Bird, 8h. 4min. 30sec. By time allowance the Oof Bird took second place. The prize was a silver badge and a sum of money given by Captain Wilkinson, the late commodore of the club. The money was divided between three boats. Captain Wilkinson acted as umpire. CLYDACH VALE. DISTRESSING ACCIDENT.—On Friday, July 1st, a distressing accident happened at Clydach Vale. It seems that whilst Henry Thomas, aged 8, the son of Mr. Edward Thomas, 31, Bush, Cwm Clydach, was on his way to the Clydach Vale School, he fell under loaded wagons, and his head thereby was severed instantly from his body. Before the children can walk to the Clydach Vale Board School they must (when coming from the Owm Clydach side) go over two rail- way crossings. During the day the engines take empty wagons from the Pwllyrhebog Incline to the Clydach Vale Pit, and then return with loaded ones. The boy, from what we can glean, attempted to catch hold of one of the wagons whilst in motion. This naturally accounts for the sad accident. The incident caused great excitement throughout the neighbourhood and the adjacent ones. A bridge is much needed where the accident took place. Much sympathy ia felt for tke bereaved parents.
