The young woman in front of him was in great danger.—Mr Mr. Hughes It was a dark night and when lie first saw the car it was about sixty yards away and coming at a fast pace. He would call ten miles an hour fast on a night like that. He stuck himself in the wav and the car stopped. He asked defendant the devil do you mean?" and in reply he said "I could not help it."

Oldham Wakes.—For this week the millions of spindles which make Oldham famous as a great cotton centre are idle and a large proportion of the town's popn. lation of 380,000 are far away from their usual haunts, seeking health and recreation by the seaside. Oldhnm "wakes" have something more than a local fame, for they possess much that is unique. It is com- puted that over £ 100,000 has been dis- tributed by the local going-away clubs to which the operatives contribute during the year so that when the holiday season comes they may hie them to seaside places and there live for a week at the rate of £5,000 a year. Cotton trade depression has served to reduce the amount to be dis. tributed. but there was no trace of carking care on the faces of the thousands who left the town on Friday night.

Inquest.—On Friday afternoon an in- quest was held at the Infirmary into the death of Herbert Cutler, twenty-six years of age, which occurred on August 25td-t at the Infirmary whither he was ad- mitted in the evening of that day after having met with an accident by falling under an empty waggon and broken his leg.

He did not see the accident and could not say how it happened. There were five or six men working at the truck and no one could say how it happened. Asked if de- ceased was ill, witness said he was one of the finest men he had ever worked with. The accident happened about five o'clock. He heard a shout and went back and saw the deceased on the side of the road. There were two waggons and they were gone. He said "Lift up my leg." They took him to the office and sent a man straight away for a doctor who came from Lampeter in about an hour and told them to take the deceased to Aberystwyth or Carmarthen. He was sent from Derry Ormond by tshe seven train to Aberyst- wyth, arriving at 7.50. The line was fit tor an engine or anything. The truck was empty. He had been workingtliere for a fortnight the same and nobody could say how the accident happened, but "iiought it was his own fault. He was not a careless man, but very quick in jumping to do what was told him. He could not get there quick enough. They did not know his name was Cutler, but called him "Brummy."—E. Parker, plate- layer, at present at Tanlan, Silian, said he knew "Brum" and had been working with him for the past fortnight. He came there and asked for work the same as the rest. There were eight men sent Vo the Junction to shove twenty-three trucks for the engine to catch them. Asked what; time the accident occurred, witness said the men remarked as men do that there were nine more trucks to move which would bring them up to half-past five, so the accident must have happened about five. He and t'he deceased were on the Tregaron side of the trucks when he heard deceased cry out "Oh, my leg." The trucks were going about four miles an hour as one might walk easily. After the accident they bags for deceased to lie on, and after the doctor had been there took deceased to Derry Ormond in I a trap. There were two trucks coupled togeitier. Deceased was at the end of I the first truck and witness at the end of the second about twenty-five yards away and he was of opinion de- ceased slipped and fell bemeatli the second truck. Had never been told to go in between the trucks and shove. De- ceased's head was lying fuce downward away from the rail and the wheels were going over his leg.—Percy Walter Ber- tin, managing engineer for Messrs Kn: tall and Co., Manchester, contractors for the making of the line, recognized de- ceased as Herbert Cutler, lie being on the books in that name. He heard since that he was from Birmingham. Examined the line the day afterward and had seen it an hour before the acci- dent. It was perfectly good. There was no fault with the road. It was unnecessary instruction to tell a man not to go in the four foot and push. It would be suicidal.—The Coroner said that men did suicidal things.—Mr Bertin said deceased was experienced in railway work and to tell him not to go in tflie four foot to push would be equivalent to telling him not to chop his head off.— Smith, recalled, said he always told men every day not to go in the fourfoot. —Inspector Phillips produced an identifying certificate of deceased found at his lodgings in Lampeter. He was a pensioner, private Herbert. Cutler, Royal Welsh Fusiliers and Army Re- serve.—Dr Ivor Jones Davies, locum tenum at the Infirmary, said deceased was admitted about a quarter past eight suffering acutely from shock as the result of tflie accident and loss ofi blood.

There was an effusion of blood iiro both knee joints, and he was bleeding freely from the fractured leg- Applied a tourniquet and administered stimu- lants, intending if he recovered to amputate the leg. The man, however, died at 10-15 from shock and the loss of blood. He must have bled profusely all the way up.—In reply to the Foreman, witness said tbJat proper measures had been taken at Lampetier and everything had been done that could be done.—Mr Bertin added that Cutler was treated immediately after the accident by a trained first aid man and bandaged on the spot.—The Jury found that deceased died as the result of falling under a railway waggon and that no blame attached to anyone.—The body was buried at the expense of Messrs Nutvall and Co., the contractors. It is said that Cutler missed being in the Newport Dock fatality by ten minutes.
