A CROP OF DISASTERS. The last few days have been unusually productive of accidents. At the close of last week, Messrs R. Eley and Joseph Goodenough. of Panteg, were thrown violently out of a trap, but fortunately they escaped without injury. On Monday, a man who has for some time been en- gaged on the Park estate, had one of his lingers broken by a stone falling on it at Penygarn. On Monday, Mr Williams, son of Mr Joseph Wil- liams, of Brynderwen, was thrown from his horse when returning home from Pontypool, and bad a very heavy fall. On Monday a valuable horse, belonging to Mr David Jenkins. of Trosnant Ale and Porter Stores, while gam- bolling with another horse round a meadow at the Cwm, came with great force against a "quarter-post" erected by the railway company. The post entered the poor animal's breast in a frightful manner. On Monday, Mrs New, wife of Mr A. T. W. New, was driving in a basket carriage from Coed-y-gric to- wards Ponthrydvrun, accompanied by her three children and Miss Whittaker, when the pony from some cause took fright and started off at headlong speed. A man who attempted t.) stop the animal was knocked down and very severely injured. The pony kept on until it overtook Mr William Jenkins's cart, up into which it was actually forced by the impetus of its speed. Mrs New was thrown to the ground, but neither she nor her companions were hurt. The pony and carriage were greatly damaged. On Tuesday, Oiinrii-s Goodenough, son of the sur- veyor to the Panteg Local Board, who is mentioned above, fell from a rick on his father's farm, and a pike, which happened to be below, ran through his arm. Medical aid was promptly procured. On Tuesday evening, Barney, son of Mr Bloom, pawnbroker, fell off the wall opposite bis father's house in George-street, and broke his arm.
