FATAL TRAP ACCIDENT. A fatal accident occurred at Knitangata yesterday afternoon (wires •‘Our Own”), when a young man named Joseph Smith met his death through a gig capsizing. Smith, who was accompanied by two other young men, was driving- down the Wangaloa road towards Kaitungata. v. lien descending’ a steep part of the road one of the reins snapped and the horse became unmanageable. At a shaip bond on tho road the horse and trap went over tho bank, and tho occupants were thrown out. Dr Baird was summoned, and on arrival at the scene of the accident found that young Smith was dead, his neck being broken. The other occupants escaped with a severe shaking.

The police have been informed that Isabella Thow, a single woman, 51' years of age, died at Milton this morning! presumably from heart .failure.
