DR. HUGH WAT SON Fox. Observer. DEATH.—We regret to record the death of Miss Owen, Ty'nddol, which occurred on Sun- d-ay evening, in her 47th year. TE-NIPERANCE.-On Thursday afternoon a meeting of the Women's branch of the Temper- ance Union was addressed by Mrs VauglLau Davies, Carnarvon, after which tea was served. In the evening a public meeting was held, Mr William Williams, Machno Villa, presiding. Ad- dresses were delivered by Mrs Vaughan Davies, Messrs Matthew Thomas, John; Jones (Green Bank), and John Tones (Ty'nymerddyn). NARROW ESCAPE OF A TRACTION EN- GINE.—Oin Friday evening a traction engine with three waggon loads of timber attached (the property of Mr David Jones, Cerrigydruidion) was proceeding up the well-known Dinas-hill, and" when about a quarter of a mile beyond the Pemm.achno turning in the direction of Penire- voelas, the engine dashed into the wall on the river side of the road, crashing its way through, when, the driver miraculously managed to stop its progress. Had the locomotive gone further, nothing could have prevented it from toppling down the precipice, which at that point is a distance of between 400 and 500 feet. As it happened, however, that disaster was avoided. Tha men in charge were obliged to remain on the spot all night without food until eight o'clock the next morning, when, fortunately for them, the Penmachno Slate Quarries Company's traction engine, taking a load for Llanrwst, ap- peared on the scene, and bv careful maneuver- ing, were able to raise the crippled engine from its' precarious position without damage. We understand that the cause of the accident was the use of smoke coal. which issued in clouds in front of the steerer, and for the instant oblit- 4eratedJ his view. Great credit is due to Messrs Carter's men for their timely assistance, which has been shown not only on this occasion, but on several others.
