.-Hoax at Hafod Brickyard.


Hoax at Hafod Brickyard. LaSt week an amusing incident happen- ed at the Hafod Brickyard. Jtilleems that a man was employed in cleaning out a large boiler which was full of water. Whilst busy at his task be was horror- stricken to find a man's body in the boiler. In alarm he rushed forth in search of aid, and in a very short time he had arout»ed the whole works with the tale of his grue- some discovery. At the head of a small army of helpers, he led the way to the spot where it was supposed a human life had ended its existence—where one more unfortunate went to his fate. One man, more hardy than the others,, bravely vol- unteered to dive into the boiler to bring up "the corpse." With a rope around his waist, the man plunged into the water, and brought up the body. To the surprise of the onlookers it was found that 44 the corpse was an old coat wrap- ped around some sacking, and it after- wards transpired that some boys had placed it in the boiler to play a hoax. At a later meeting of workmen the discovery of the 44 body was presented with a tele- scope, and the rescuer was presented with a volume of4' Brave Deeds." J
