SERIOUS ACCIDENT: An elderly married man named Davies, whilst working at the Kemberton Colliery yesterday, accidentally slipped off the siding, and was badly hurt. He was taken home by his comrades, and attended to by Dr. Stubbs's assistant.

ACCIDENT: On Saturday, as Mr. William Tranter was working in the Court Field pits, a large lump of coal fell on his hand, necessitating his attendance at the surgery of Dr. Webb, Iron-Bridge, who discovered that no bones were broken, although the hurt was a bad one.
