On Monday morning a young man named John ROONEY, residing at Jacktrees Road, Cleator Moor, met with an accident while following his employment at No. 21 Ainsworths' Pit.

It seems he was in the act of getting a bogie of metal down an inclined road when it got away from him, and he was thrown violently to the ground, receiving severe cuts and bruises. He was taken home and medically attended by Dr. BYERS. At the time of writing he is progressing favourably.
