 1. SE3IOUS FX PLOSION 1? AX OLD COAL MI?E NEAR BARN8LEY. I THREE GENTLEMEN SHOCKINGLY BURIED. A very r ek'.e?-, and, it is to be featured, fatal adventure into the workings of an old coal mine, took place on Friday evening, near Cawthorne, about five miles from Barnsley. Three gentlemen —Mr Henry Ellis, of D'mby, colliery owner; Mr H. Wood, tanner, and landlord of the Sovereign Inn, near Shepley and Mr Enoch Taylor, land- lord of the George Inn, D:r:hy-were, it appears, in -rby—were, it appears, in negotiation for working the nit, which has been idle for some months. The workings are approached by a day hole. The three gentlemen went into the workings with a naked ligafc to examine them. They had not proceeded far when a terrific explo- sion of gas took place, which seriously injured them. Mr Taylor, who appears to have been the nearest r.he gas when it exploded, was shockingly burnt about the hearl, face, aud hands. The two other gentlemen were also much burnt. As soon as possible the sufferers were taken to Cawtho rne and put to bed. Dr Firth and Dr Rowley, of Silkstone, were quickly in attendance and did all they could to alleviate their sufferings. They w ire subse- quently removed to their homes. Mr Taylor's re- covery is considered doubtful. The two other gentlemen are xot so seriously hurt.
