FATAL KICK BY HORSE.

INQUEST ON CO. DONEGAL MAN.

WAS GOING BACK TO CANADA.

After completing arrangements in Derry on Thursday for his return to Wiinipeg, James Knox, aged 58, a railway worker and a former Donegal farmer, was stabling his brother-in-law's horse at Glack, Culldaff, when the animal kicked him, with fatal results.

At the inquest in Derry Infirmary, where death took place on Saturday morning from peritonitis, evidence of identification was given by Alexander Knox, a brother, who said the deceased had been in Canada for twenty years, and was returning next Friday. He was a married man, but had no family.

Robert M'Intyre, a brother-in-law, said when deceased arrived home from Derry the horse was loose in the yard. Deceased put the horse in the stable, and according to his statement afterwards put his hand on the animal to push it round in order to get past it to tie it when it kicked him on the abdomen. Deceased came into the house, and complaining about being kicked went to bed. As his condition became worse medical ail was summoned, and his removal to Derry Infirmary was ordered. Deceased was then quite conscious, but was suffering great pain.

The Coroner (Mr. J. Tracy) -- What sort of a horse was this?

Witness said the animal was a very quiet one, and was never known to kick anyone. Deceased was a stranger and had very little interest in horses.

Dr. John Doherty, house surgeon at the Infirmary, said death was due to peritonitis and the jury recorded a verdict accordingly, and expressed deep sympathy with the bereaved relatives. Head-Constable Hueston represented the authorities.

MAN'S FATAL "AMUSEMENT."

GOT SHOCK INTENDED FOR FROG.

PARIS, Sunday -- A farm labourer of Bayeux was found dead from electrocution beside an electric standard.

From the fact that he still held clasped in his hands a frog, it is believed that he had tried to amuse himself by giving the frog the benefit of the high tension current, but received the full force himself. -- Central News.

WHISKEY FOR SICK MAN.

PORTADOWN LICENSING COURT.

At a Licensing Court in Portadown to-day -- before Messrs. George M'Elroy, R.M., and W. G. Moriarty, R.M. -- District-Inspector Anderson prosecuted S.B.D. Hall, managing director of the Imperial Hotel, for having his premises open for the sale of drink on the morning of 11th August, and an Armagh man was charged with being on the premises. Mr. R.M. Cullen pleaded guilty.

The defence was that the man found on the premises complained of feeling ill and asked Hall to get him a drink at 9-45 on the morning in question. Hall brought him to the back door, and let him in to get a glass of whiskey.

Mr. M'Elroy said it was a small case, and if Hall had told the policeman that when he went to the premises he would probably not have been prosecuted. The defendant would be discharged under the Probation of Offenders Act.

District-Inspector Anderson -- This is the second offence.

Mr. M'Elroy -- That does not prevent us applying the Probation of Offenders Act in a trifling case.

Mr. Moriarty -- It is no slur on the police, who did their duty.

The same rule was made in the case against the man found on the premises.

Thomas M'Cann, of the Express Mineral Works, Brick Lane, Portadown, was prosecuted for selling beer without a licence, and was fined 20s and costs.

Mr. T.D. Gibson, for the defendant, intimated that there would be an appeal.

FUNERAL COACH OVERTURNS.

MOURNERS ESCAPE WITH SHAKING.

When the funeral cortege of the late Mrs. Timms, wife of Mr. A.H. Timms, magistrates' clerk, of Swadlincote, Leicestershire, was on its way to the Gresley Cemetery on Saturday the horse attached to a coach conveying Mr. Timms and his daughter, took fright, and jumping, the coach was overturned. The occupants had to be got through a window. The horse was badly cut. The occupants escaped with a shaking.

MERSEYSIDE CINEMA FIRE.

CHILDREN MARCH OUT SINGING.

A cinema matinee audience of between five and six hundred people, mostly children, in the Coliseum, Birkenhead, filed out of the building on Saturday afternoon while the staff tackled an outbreak of fire in the reel room behind the gallery.

While a picture was being shown, a film caught fire and, although promptly tackled with chemical extinguishers, four reels were destroyed, as well as the walls of the room.

The situation was quickly grasped by the manager (Mr. Cecil Lindsay), who ordered the attendants to marshal the children and march them out of the building.

The children sang songs, led by the manager, as they left the cinema.

There was no panic, and within ten minutes the children were back in the cinema watching the remainder of the pictures.

CARNMONEY PARISH CHURCH.

NEW MEMORIAL HALL.

DEDICATED BY THE BISHOP.

The Bishop of Down (Right Rev. C.T.P. Grierson, B.D.), in dedicating the new parochial hall in connection with Carnmoney Parish Church on Saturday, said the hall had been erected for a two-fold object -- firstly, as a memorial to the brave men from the parish who had laid down their lives in the Great War, and, secondly, as a parochial hall.

From their parish 140 men had served in the war and 23 of them had made the supreme sacrifice. No parish machinery was complete without a parochial hall. The church was learning more and more to try and take hold of their young people and to take hold of their social lives. They would all gather together in that hall from their various homes and meet there in their church home. The hall would be for recreation and instruction, and they could dedicate their recreation as well as their instruction to God.

It would be used for their Sunday school and Bible classes and various organisations for the young in connection with the parish. It was a splendid work, and the parishioners had every right to be proud of what they had done. They had great reason to congratulate themselves on the fact that the hall had been opened and dedicated free of debt.

HEARTY CONGRATULATIONS.

He (the Bishop) had carried out many dedications, and he did not recall once -- he might be wrong, but he could not remember -- in which the building had been open free of debt. He congratulated them very heartily on that fact. That result could not have been reached without the good leadership, well backed up, of Canon Clarke. He congratulated Canon Clarke and also the men of the parish, who had saved a sum of about £500 by doing the digging preparatory to the foundations being laid in their spare time during the summer evenings. Credit was also due to the curate, Rev. S.J. Leighton, who had raised the money for the electric installation, and they were also under a great debt to Mr. M'Kee, people's churchwarden, for his generosity.

There was a large attendance at the ceremony; the clergy present in addition to the bishop being Rev. Canon Clarke, M.A. (rector); Rev. S.J. Leighton (curate); Rev. Canon Scott; Rev. G.

REALISM OF NAVAL EXERCISES.

ENEMY ONLY THING LACKING.

NEW BATTLESHIPS IN SPECTACLE.

In Moray Firth during the next few days some of the newest and most powerful ships of the Atlantic Fleet will engage in autumn exercises, some of which will be so realistic that the only substantial factor missing will be a real enemy target.

Nelson and Rodney, the Navy's latest battleships, will fire broadsides from their immense sixteen-inch guns. Hood, Renown, and Repulse, ships of the Battle Cruiser Squadron, will fire fifteen-inch broadsides while steaming at full power.

Benbow, Marlborough, and Emperor of India will fire torpedoes while steaming at full power.

Cruisers, destroyers, and aircraft-carriers will shoot at the Centurion, an old battle-ship which is the target ship of the Atlantic Fleet, and destroyers will carry out a night attack on the Third Battle Squadron.

The ships of the Atlantic Fleet concentrated in Cromarty Firth represent a very fair compendium of a modern navy, ... all branches of the Service ....(cont...)

CO. DOWN BUS BURNED.

EMERGENCY DOOR ESCAPES.

NONE OF THE PASSENGERS INJURED.

On Monday evening, while proceeding from Downpatrick to Castlewellan, one of Mr. Egner's buses caught fire near Clough, and was completely destroyed.

It appears that the petrol pipe burst, and the flames spread so quickly that two of the four passengers had to escape by the emergency door.

People living in the district attempted to extinguish the flames, but were unsuccessful.

BRITISH ROAD SMASHES.

JAPANESE ATTACHE KILLED.

IN MOTOR COLLISION NEAR PERTH.

Lieut.-Commander S. Miki, the assistant naval attachè to the Japanese Embassy in London, was killed in a motor collision at Stairdom, near Perth, on Monday night.

Lieut.-Commander Miki arrived in Great Britain only a few months ago to take up his appointment at the Embassy. He had a distinguished career in the Japanese Navy.

He was a good linguist and spoke English fluently.

Perthshire County police were actively engaged today making enquiries into the accident. Lieut.-Commander Miki was motoring from Perth, presumably, to Cromarthy Firth, and when negotiating a double bend near Birnam his car skidded to the opposite side of the road and collided with an oncoming car.

Commander Miki, who was alone, received terrible injuries to his head, which came in contact with the hood support of the other car, and was instantly killed.

The car, which was badly damaged, was turned upside down.

====================

ACCIDENT ON WEDDING DAY.

BRIDAL COUPLE RECOVERING.

The Baron and Baroness von Seegen who were involved in a motor smash at Postcombe, Oxfordshire, on Monday, are both stated to be rapidly recovering. Their injuries were not serious.

The accident occurred when the Baron and Baroness, who had been married earlier at Rochester Row Registry Office, were on their way to the little Norman chapel at Southam de la Bere, near Cheltenham, for the religious ceremony.

Despite the fact that their car overturned and they were both injured, they continued their journey to the chapel, where the ceremony was conducted by the rector of Bishop Cleeve, the Rev. M. Morgan-Brown.

The Baron and Baroness later proceeded to the beautiful Worcestershire village of Broadway, where they will spend part of the honeymoon.
