NARROW ESCAPE OF A YOUNG SAILOR AT BARRY. GALLANT CONDUCT OF A SHIPMATE. On Monday afternoon last, about half-past two o'clock, an exciting incident occurred at Barry Dock. A middy named Ronald George Hart, aged 16, of Southampton, belonging to the sailing ship Mount Stewart, of Aberdeen, laying at Barry Dock, was engaged scrubbing the side of the ship, and having finished he proceeded to climb on board, but slipping his hold of the rope he fell into the dock, in a depth of water of about 40ft. The young fellow could not swim, and having on heavy clothing he soon disappeared below the surface. Seeing Hart's perilous position, a fellow- apprentice named George Francis Hyde, aged 17, belonging to Southsea, who was standing on the rail on deck, with his oilskins and seaboats on, at once jumped overboard and succeeded iu bringing the drowning youth to the surface, and held him up till rescued by a boat which promptly put out. This was Hart's first voyage, and when carried aboard after the exciting incident he was in a very exhausted condition. The conduct of Hyde is described by spectators as being most gallant, and ought to be brought under the notice of the Royal Humane Society.
