A serious motor accident occurred at Great Clifton on Saturday evening
to Mr. W. MAWSON, of Ullock. It appears that Mr. MAWSON was making the journey
to Workington about 7 p.m. on his motor cycle. and when descending the hill
known at Parrot's Brow, his motor cycle skidded on a road made greasy by a
shower and crashed into a car driven by Mr. SKELTON, of Seaton, conveying a
billiard party to Cockermouth.
MAWSON's thigh was broken, and he was otherwise badly bruised and cut on
the head. P. C. BAINBRIDGE and Mr. TIFFIN, of Workington and Supt. RITCHIE
rendered first aid, and MAWSON was conveyed to Workington Infirmary.
The report of the Keswick Co-operative Wholesale Society for the past
quarter states that the sales amounted to £7,477, and the profit to £838 . The
membership numbered 988 and the purchases from the co-operative sources
amount to 78.4 per cent. The sales for the quarter were very satisfactory despite
the falling prices and reduced income of many of their members. The work of
rebuilding and modernising their premises was progressing quickly, and when
completed they would be second to none.
