MOTOR ACCIDENT AT
GREAT CLIFTON.

   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.

KESWICK CO-OPERATIVE
SOCIETY.

   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.
