FOUR MEN DROWNED. Shortly before five o'clock the other aftornoon n shocking accident occured at a pool in a field adjoin- the Manor house, Fenton, Staffordshire, resulting iu the drowiug of two young men, named William Dolby 18, plumber, Wilson Street, and James Bridge 21, litter at tho North StatIonhire Railway- Company's Locomotive Works, Havelock Street, Stoke-on-Trent.—It seems that the deceased and about ton or a dozen young men and youths, had been skating on the pool in question, which is of considerable depth. One of the deceased waw teaching the other to skate, and while they had hold of each other the ice suddenly gave way beneath them, and they disappeared in the water. A youth. named Thomas Jebb (15) made a gallant but un- successful attempt at rescue, and becoming im- mersed in the water narrowly escaped losing his own life. News of the disaster spread very quickly, and Polioe-oonstables Deaville and Fradley, of Fenton, and Police-constable Alcook, of Stoke, were soon upon the soene. By the aid of a long ladder and some drags the officers succeeded iu bringing Dolby to the surfaoe about half an hour after the accident, and the body of Bridge was recovered some twenty minutes later. The police- men, being members of the St. John's Ambulanco Society, endeavoured to restore animation by arti- ficial respiration and other means, but their efforts were unavailing, and on the arrival of Dr. McAldowie he pronounced life to be extinct in both cases. The unfortunate young men were neigh- bours, and lived close to the scene of the accident. While a largo number of skaters were on a mill pool at Burnley, the ice gave way, and William. Tinsley, a meohanio, married, and Frank Outh- waite, a weaver, were drowned. A collier named Samuel Clarkaon made a gallant attempt to resoue- the men, and nearly lost hia life. Other skaters- made a stampede for the shore, and through the ice, which was thin, breaking in all directions, several narrow escapes occurred. People had been repeatedly warned.
