On Saturday morning, as Thomas Roberts, Castle Street, was returning from Llanuwch- llyn with the mail car, the horse tripped near Cerrigllwydion, and the driver was thrown out, sustaining severe injuries. He was brought home, and we are glad to learn that under the care of Dr. Peters, he is making satisfactory progress towards recovery. In the afternoon of the same day, as a ser- vant man at Llwynrodyn was returning from Bala market in charge of a horse and cart, and was passing under a railway bridge near Bala, the horse took fright, it is conjectured by hear- ing the train passing overhead. The man, in trying to restrain the horse, somehow or other, fell under the wheels of the cart, sustaining a fracture of the collar bone and interval injuries. He was taken to Dr. Williams' surgery where his wounds were dressed, aud then conveyed to the house of Mr. Evan Williants, coach builder. We are glad to learn that he is progressing favourably.
