BARMOUTH. SIGNS OF PROGRESS—The appearance of two motor tricycles in the town on Friday were the objects of much curiosity. The machines can travel at the rate of twenty miles an hour. ACCIDENT.—On Thursday morning as a loaded coal waggon was being shunted to a siding to be unloaded into the gas works-the waggon at the time going at a good speed-one of the men em- ployed at the works ran to put the brake on, and was knocked against the vdMl, and so badly hurt, that he had to be carried Wme, and was found to be much bruised. He is now progressing favour- ably, and is expected to recover in a few days. A FREE GIFT OF LAND.—The Urban District Council lately applied to the deacons of the Caresalem C. M. Chapel for a portion of the land in front of their chapel to widen the main road and that free of charge. The deacons it seems have acquiesced to this application, and have given the land free of charge on condition that the council rebuild the wall, and concrete the entrance to the chapel. It was reported in a contemporary a few weeks ago that the officials of Caersalem had refused to entertain the council's application. Tha t report was premature and incorrect. ANOTHER ACCIDENT.—In consequence of laying new drain pipes along the main road for the extension of the sewerage towards Llanaber, the road from Hanlith-terrace, as far as Hendremynach had to be diverted for vehicle traffic and the old road up the hill had to be made use of. On Friday morning a waggon with three horses loaded with iron hurdles was proceeding towards Llanbedr when on entering this road at a sharp curve the waggon came in contact with the gate post knocking a portion of it down. After being relieved of this mishap and when half-way up the hill the horses shied and turned across the road, when all of a sudden the waggon and contents were upset. When the accident occured there were a number of people going up in that direction and in close proximity to the waggon, and it is a wonder that none were injured. After some difficulty and loss of time, the waggon and horses were released and proceeded towards their destination, neither horses nor waggon having had any damage. PETTY SESSIONS.
