TERRIBLE ACCIDENT TO A BUILDER.-We re- gret to announce that as Mr S. Shaw, builder, Mill Street, Usk, was re-bricking a well, at Mr J. Knight's new house at Common Trip, Gwehelog, on Tuesday morning, the side of the well gave way and fell upon him with great force when he was on the ladder, whereby his nose and face were terribly injured and his jaw fractured. Dr G. H. Jenkins was soon in attendance, and Mr Shaw was taken by road to Newport Hospital, where, from latest reports, he appears to be making as much progress as can be expected under the sad circumstances. He passed a fairly comfortable night on Wednesday and is bravely bearing his pain and misfortune. The greatest sympathy is felt with his wife who has spent some time with her husband since his admission to the Hospital. NEW YEAR'S PARTY.—Sir Alfred and Lady Maloney gave a dance to their servants at Cefn Tilla, on the 1st, when there were many invitad guests from Usk and Llandenny. The servants' hall had been very nicely decorated for the occasion by Mr Ducker and his gardening staff. At 8.30 p.m., Sir Alfred and Lady Maloney, with Miss Gladys Maloney and Mr H Owen Lewis (her lady- ship's father), entered the hall, and having ex- tended a cordial welcome to all, opened the dancing with Sir Roger de Coverley." At 10.30 there was on adjournment for refreshments in the house- keeper's room, after which dancing was resumed until 12.30, when Mr Joseph Murray, who had made an efficient M.C., in a neat speech, thanked Sir Alfred and Lady Maloney for their great kindness. During the evening the housekeeper, Mrs De Lnca, assisted by Miss Curly, saw that all the guests thoroughly enjoyed themselves, and a happy time was brought to a close by the singing of Auld lang syne," and God save the King."
