+ MALPAS. ACCIDENT.—A collision occurred between two vehicles on Wednesday in going down the Wrexham-road, one belonging to Mr. Broad, Threapwood, the other to Mr. R. Clutton, of unoriton-lane. Both parties were thrown out, and Mr. Clutton's trap capsized, he himself receiving a dislocation of his shoulder. He was attended to by Dr. Jordison, under whose able treatment he is progressing favourably. Mr. Broad just eseaped without injury. FIRE.—A fire occurred on Thursday at Mr. Payne s, the Crab Tree Farm, whereby a stack of hay was destroyed. The alarm was raised about 6 o'clock a.m., and in less than half-an- hour the local brigade and engine were on the spot, three miles distant, and at work, when it did good service, and saved several other ricks from destruction. The brigade, which is a new one, deserves great credit and praise for its prompt and smart action and service. The produce was insured, but we do not yet know how the fire originated. BURIAL BOARD.—A meeting of the board was held on Thursday. Present :-Messrs. E. Langley (chairman), G. S. Morgan, F. Battarbee, W. Penk, J. Huxley, A. D. Callcott, and C. Tomlinson. Specifications for the repairs and painting to the lodge and chapels at the cemetery, prepared by the Provisional Committee, were read, and tenders in accord- ance therewith were received from Messrs.

Jones and Mercer s tender of £ 9 9s. 6d. be accepted. —A tender from Mr. Huxley was received for the repairs to masonry, &c., for Xii 10s.—Mr. Morgan proposed that the tender be accepted.— Mr. Caldecott seconded. The local committee were ordered to superintend the work.—The Clerk submitted his estimates for the half-year. —Mr. Penk moved that a rate of lid. in the £ be made.—Mr. Huxley seconded. This was carried. Mr. Morgan called attention to the charges for hearse. The charges were drafted several years ago, and there was only one copy in existence, which was now posted in the clerk's office. These were not very clean, nor did he think they were on a sound basis. The charges for the hearse to non-parishioners was £5 and Is. per mile, while a parishioner burying out of the district was charged 10s. for the hearse, and Is. per mile. The parishioner had in addition to pay his rate. He gave notice that at the next meeting he should movethat there be a revision f of the fees for tbe beuie. I
