A BOY KILLED AT BORTH. On Monday evening, a fatal accident happened to a lad named Abraham Daviea, son of Capt Davies. The boy, who was between ten and eleven years of age, was with six other lads of his own age, playing with one of the goods waggons on the siding of the railway. They had been warned off several times, but returned as soon as they found the officials engaged with their duties. There is a slight incline of the rails, and they pushed the waggon up the steep, after which it would run down, thus giving the boys an opportunity of riding on the connecting rods be- tween the wheels. Davies was thus enjoying himself, when he got drawn in between the connecting rod and the wheel, and was thus severely crushed. Capt Abraham Davies and P.C. Phillips took him to a house close by, and he was afterwards conveyed home, and attended to by Dr John Jonea. The injuries were chiefly internal, and after lingering from seven o'clock until 9.30 the same evening, he died. He was con- soious up to the time of his death. The inquest was held to-day (Wednesday). m I Aberystwyth, from Constitution Hill. [FROM: "THE GOSSIPING GUIDE TO WALES."]
