I HIS FATHER'S BIBLE ON HIM. DISTRESSING AFFAIR AT COCKETT. A distressing affair toofk: place at Cookett on Tuesday. During the dinner-hour a number of lads went to the Tunnel Brick Works pond, which has been lately covered with a sheet of ice, with the result that one of them named William Charles Nicholson, eleven years of age, son of Mr. and Mrs. Nicholson, No. 3, MarteH-strcet. Cockett. slid into the centre of the pond, where there was a large hole. One of his companions, Freddie Pons- ford, saw him fall in. and the cries of the children attracted attention to the spot. The little lad was heard to caii out, Oh, ma.m, come and help me! Later the little lad's body was recovered by the aid of a ladder and planks laid upon the sheet of ice by Mr. George Marsh (Cookett) and others at about 2.15 p.m., after dragging operations. The sad affair has cast qufte a. gloom over the district, as thL- little lad's father, Pte W. J, Nicholson. is at Salonika, and, in fact, deceased had upon him at the time n Bible which his father had sent him. Tlii, tragic affair once I again draws atten- tion to the urgent need for some method of more effectually enclosing theee disused clay-hodes. An inquest will be held on Friday at 11.45 a.m. at Fforestfach.
