Drowned at Bideford. Mardy Haulier's Fate. A925 Spent in Three Weeks. Enoch Davies, a young haulier em- ployed at the No. 2 Pit, Locket Merthyr Colliery, IVfc rdy arid living with his widowed mother at 3, Royal Cottages, Mardy, was found drowned in a pool in the River Dorridge, at Bideford, on Saturday morning last. At the inquest held on Saturday even- ing, Samuel Thomas, who gave evidence of identification, said he had been lodging with deceased at the King's Arms, but had noticed nothing wrong with him, or that he was eccentric. Dr. Pearson, of Bideford, who made a post-mortem examination, said there were no external marks of violence. The stomach was inflamed, probably caused by alcohol. Death was caused by drown- mg. P.O. Bastin told the jury of an inter- view deceased had with him about two hours before he was drowned. Davies complained that everybody was laughing at him. and asked what he could do. His condition appeared so bad that witness went down and cautioned Mrs. Hookway, where deceased was staying, to the effect that he was in a bad way and required to be looked after. Mrs. Hookway asked deceased to ko to bed, but he refused. To all appearance deceased ,seemed to be on the verge of delirium tremens. Maria. Hookway, landlady of the King's Arms, said deceased had been staying; at her house a fortnight. He was well behaved, and as far as she eoud see was only a moderate drinker. She had never seen him drunk. Thomas Kelly a youth, deposed to,see- ing a man in the water about 4.30. He did not struggle or make any attempt to swim. He came up three times and then disappeared. Witness called another man's attention to the fact. Wm. Williams, a mason's labourer, the man referred to, said they made every effort to recover the body, but were un- successful. P.O. Horn deposed to finding the body early on Saturday morning;, just a few yards from where the deceased entered the water. P.S. Newberry produced a Post Office Bank book belonging to deceased, which showed that on July 17th last he had £ 26 12s. 2d. on deposit. He took out £ 10 at Mardy on that date, and another tlO at Bath on July 20th, and a further £ 5 at Bideford on July 27th, so that about JE25 had gone in three weeks, and not a single coin was found on deceased. Summing un, the Deputy Coroner said he did not think from the evidence it could be said deceased intended to take his life. There was no doubt he had been drinking, and the post-mortem examina- tion showed that. The jury returned a verdict of Found drowned," and added a rider asking: the Bideford: authorities to nrovide better appliances for recovering: bodies from the river. The present ones, the Coroner, said, were a disgrace to any up-to-date town.
Boxing Contest at Pontypridd. Jim Southway Draws with Carsey. Slogging 20 Rounds Contest. A boxing contest took place at the Taff Vale Park, Pontypridd, on Monday even- ing between Eddie Carsey (America), a pupil of Freddy Welsh, and Jim South- way, of Ton-Pentre, for £ 25 a-side and a percentage of the gate. IVlr. Dunning, of the Sportsman," acted as referee and Mr. H. Wells, Cardiff, as timekeeper. The contest was one of 20 rounds of three minutes each. Carsey had some advan- tage in weight, but the young Rhondda man showed quickness in footwork and stuck well to his opponent to the end of the 20 rounds, after which the referee declared the encounter a draw, remark- ing, "I cannot part these men," It was a hard slogging fight through- out, but was not remarkable for much scientific display. The referee had to repeatedly warn both men for infringe- ments, especially Carsey, who exhibited a, tendency to hold on to his opponent. In the first few rounds Southway failed to take advantage of several opportuni- ties, neglecting: to follow up when Carsey was cornered. It was further noticeable that Southway did not give his opponent effective body blows, which lie often could have done, as the American seemed chiefly bent upon safeguarding his face by hold- ing up his hands in a peculiar i Alr, leav- ing, his bodynracticallv uncovered. Up to the eighth round Southway seemed on the whole to have the best of matters, notwithstanding, a stinging blow twice on the face in the third and fourth rounds. In the tenth round Carsey forced matters, and rather severely punished his man on the face both in this and the succeeding round. The thirteenth round was marked with some heavy fighting, both men punishing each other badly. Southway appeared to be getting some- what weaker, while his onoonfmt did not seem to be much the worse, and in the fifteenth round he subjected Southway to a tremendous body blow. Southway, how- ever, showed plenty of stamina, and rallied considerably, and up to the twentieth round both men fought for all they were worth, neither gaining much advantage of the other, and the referee, amid the plaudits of the assemblage, announced the encounter a draw. Mr. Dunning announced at the com- mencement of the fight that a challenge had been issued by Jack Fox, of Bir- mingham, to fight the Nviiiiier.

Ogmore Vale. New Pits.—At last, the sinking opera- tions of the much-talked-of Plantation Pits will be commenced. The ceremony of cutting the sod was performed on Thursday last. The ceremony was carried out in the presence of a small company, which included Sir W. T. Lewis and some or the directors; of the Coedcae Colliery Company. In all, three pits are to be sunk—two in the plantation and one near the Kennel. After' the ceremony, luncheon was served by Mr. Wm. Branch in the Corbett Hotel, and was presided over by Sir W. T. Lewis. Mr. Thomas Davies is the chief engineer of the undertaking, and further developments are expected in the near future. Children s Choir.—On Wednesday last, the Juvenile Choir journeyed to Llan- dyssul and obtained the second prize. It was a near thing, for they only lost the first prize by a single point. The per- formance is enhanced by the fact that such a long, journey must have had a detrimental effect on the children. Carnival.—The great attraction at Ogjnore Vale on Wednesday last was the fancy dress parade of the Nantymoel Carnival. The parade started at" the Crossing Field in the morning, and wended its way through the main streets to the Park. The proceeds were for the joint benefit of Cardiff Infirmary and Bridgend Cottage Hospital. The various collectors worked assiduously en route and quite a substantial sum was realisec( Large crowds lined the rrm+.A o:>Hnn tion being paid to "Bob Court's Band."

Mr. Court rode in front, seated backwards on a donkey, and his conduct- together with tiie selections, caused roars of laughter. Mr. Court deserves great credit for the part he took in such a worthy cause.

It is a Great Mistake to put off visiting an Optician until the eyes, from sheer neglect, can no longer do their work. Common Spectacles chosen at random, can do considerable damage to the eyesight therefore, always visit a competent optician when you feel the need of spectacles, when you will have your eyes tested by scientific methods. You Lose Nothing as no charge is made for testing the sight; and if Masses are not necessary you will be told so. 11 ° Chid fen's Eyes should always be examined if they are at all dull or backward in learning, as this is frequently due to difficulty in seeing, and many a child,apparently dull-witted, becomes quick and bright after being fitted with proper glasses. Pasiticulap Attention is given to frame-fitting, so that the full benefit can be derived trom the lenses, which is impossible with ill-fitting frames.
