He was working at the Purakanui Cliffs in a rope chair, clearing stuff from the face of the rock, when a piece about a hundred weight fell from some distance above him, striking bis foot and fracturing a toe. A boy named Bell, nine years of age, was run over by the express train near the Windermere railway station. He was subject to epileptic fits, and was lying between the rails. The cow-catcher struck him and fractured bis skull.

A man named Sampson, a plumber, fell down dead while watching a procession at Napier on Sunday. In David street, Caversbam, on Saturday, a young lad named Burgess was knocked down by the horses attached to a tramcar, but owing to the promptitude of tim driver he escaped with a few scratches on his face. The frequency with which youngsters almost court injury by running in front of the cars has been much noticed of late, and it is a mattef of wonderment that no serious accidents are reported. An accident happened in the graving dock, Port Chalmers, this forenoon, to a shipwright named Thomas Jones. He waa engaged caulking the sides of the bulk Henbury, when by some means he fell off the staging to the bottom of the dock, a distance of some 12ft. Fortunately, he caught hold of the staging, which broke the fall, and he only sustained some slight injuries to hia face, and was able to walk to his residence.
