A YOUNG MAN'S HEROISM.—Tn the Bex- hill on Sea Observer for last week, there appears yn account of a disastrous fire which occurred at Arden, Bexhill-on-Sea, in which Mr. J. Blackburn is a lodger. It will be remembered that Mr. Blackburn for many years resided in Penmaen- mawr, where he was in the employ of the Holy- head and North Wales Gas Company, and re- moved to Bexhill, to take up the position of secre- tary of the Bexhill Gas and Water Co. The news- paper gives a graphic account of Mr Blackburn's heroism in saving Mrs Smith, an elderly lady of 70 years, and Miss F. M. Church, who were found almost suffocated in a bedroom on the second storey on the west side of the house. The account goes on to say Not saying a word to anyone Mr. Blackburn went quietly to work to effect a rescue." It is to him and to him alone that those ladies owe their lives. He risked his to save theirs." A gentleman in a crowd said that if a testimonial was raised to the gallant young man, I will head the list." A fund has been opened to reward Mr. Blackburn and his helpers for his gallantly in the rescue of three ladies (one a helpless invalid and the other a cripple) and also to recompense him, he having lost tho whole of his personal effects in the fire. In the newspaper appears an excellent portrait of Mr. Blackburn, and also a picture of him making his escape from the burning house after the rescue. We feel sure that our local readers will be pleased to learn of the heroic con- duct of this young man. ELECTION.—The Salem Debating Society on Thursday evening had a mock Parliamentary election. The candidates were Mr. Mr. Moses Roberts (C), Mr. Albert Davies (L), and Mr. W. J. Roberts (Socialist).
