FRODSHAM. ACCIDENT TO LADY CYCLIST.—What might have proved a serious, if not fatal, accident, occurred at Overton on Friday tight. Miss Hayes, of Frodsham, was riding her bicycle down the slight decline in Vicarage-lane, when she somehow got between a lurry, which was stationary, and a shandry going in the same direction. She apparently made an effort to pass between the two vehicles and so get on in front, but her machine unfortunately swerved on to the shandry, which knocked her down, one wheel passing over her, and her machine erettiner buckled and shattered. On examina- tion by the doctor it was found she had almost miraculously escaped with a severe shaking and straining of the muscles and sinews of her leg. On calling at Miss Hayes' residence on Monday morning our correspondent found her going on as well as could be expected, though rather nervous after her astonishing escape. JOSEPH ASHWORTH AND SONS, LIMITED.— The first annual ordinary general meeting of this company was held at the Hop Pole Hotel, Chester, on Thursday after- noon, Mr. George Lewis, Malpas, presiding over a good attendance. The Chairman pre- sented the directors' report and statement of accounts for the year ending 30th June, 1897, which he considered satisfactory in every sense. The shareholders adopted the recommendation of the directors to pay a dividend on the ordinary shares of 6 per cent. free of income tax, placing R500 to reserve fund, and iE206 to credit of next account, out of which the directors' fees for the past year are to be paid. Mr. John Ashworth and Mr. Edward Hassall having retired from the directorate, it was resolved that Mr. Hassall and Mr. W. J. Lee be appointed to fill the vacancies. Mr. James Bolton, of Warrington, was re-elected auditor for the ensuing year. A vote of thanks to the directors concluded the business. ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION FOOTBALL CLUB.—A well-attended meeting of the members of this club was held on Wednesday night, at the Railway Inn, Mr. E. Lawless occupying the chair.—The Secretary (Mr. F. Maddock) read the report of the Finance Committee, which stated that the committee had decided not to enter the club into any League this season, but had instructed the secretary to arrange friendly fixtures of as good a class as possible; that the club was, as usual, affiliated to the Warrington and District Association; that the committee had got, the consent of Mr. C. E. Linaker to be president of the club, and the following to be vice-presidents :-Messrs. C. Reynolds, A. Thomas, J. J. Crossfield, W. G. Mortimer, S. Davies, W. W. Frith, E. G. Steward, E. Ashworth, A. J. Ashworth, and Colonel Ashton; and that the subscription for playing members be 3s. 6d. The election of officers resulted as follows:— Captain first team, C. E. Linaker, jun.; sub- captain, J. Rodgers; captain reserve team, H. Miller; sub-captain, H. Warburton; captain Wednesday team, T. Pounds; sub-captain, George Rodgers. The Finance Committee was elected as follows :—Messrs. J. Entwistle, E. H. Hamlyn, C. E. Linaker, jun., J. G. Webb, T. Booth, H. Forster, L. Pollard, E. Lawless, George Rodgers, sen., andT. Pounds. Mr. F. Maddock was again appointed hon. secretary and treasurer, and Mr. H. Warburton assistant secretary.—The Secretary reported that the fixtures were nearly completed, and were of a much better class than the club had hitherto played. All the old members had promised to assist the club, together with several new and promising players, and he anticipated running a much stronger team than that which did so excellently last season. —A vote of thanks to the Chairman closed the meeting.
