FRIGHTFUL OCCURRENCE AT DUMFRIES.
TWO CUMBERLAND MEN BURNED TO DEATH.
 
WILLIAM MARSH, a native of Cleator Moor, and WILLIAM MALINS, belonging to Carlisle, labourers at the Cove Quarries, Closeburn, Dumfries, were on Sunday morning burned to death in the cooking hut at the quarries.  They had been to a neighbouring village on Saturday night, and after their return the worse for drink, were seen in the hut by the hutkeeper, who, after damping down the stove with a small coal, left the men, locking the door, as usual, and taking away the key.  About an hour later the hutkeeper's daughter gave an alarm, having heard moans, and her mother going outside saw that the cooking hut was on fire.  She unlocked the door, but found it impossible to extricate the men, as the wood which was coated with tar, burnt like tinder, and when the flames subsided, nothing was found but the charred corpses of the two inmates.
 
WEDDING AT ENNERDALE CHURCH.
 
Although the weather was somewhat showery, another very pretty, albeit quiet , wedding occurred on Saturday, at one o'clock, being on this occasion MISS MARY A. THOMPSON and MR. GAITSKILL, farmer, Eskett.
 
MR. LEONARD GAITSKILL was best man, and the ceremony was performed by the REV. J. TYSON.  The bride was suitably attired in slate colour, while the bridesmaids wore slate colour and blue respectively.  On leaving the church, the party received the usual salute, especially from the youngsters assembled, and after a short stay, left for Ennerdale via Kirkland.
 
 
WATH BROW FOOTBALL CLUB
 
At a special meeting of the members of the Wath Brow Rugby Football Club held on Monday night, the Greyhound Inn, tenanted by MRS. HUNTER, was selected as the headquarters of the club for next season.
 
A RECORD COLLECTION
 
The annual sermons of St. Paul's, Bolton, of which the REV. E. JUMP is vicar, were preached on Sunday last, May 14th, in the morning and evening, by the REV. CANON M'CORMICK, D.D. vicar of St. Augustine's, Highbury, N., and in the afternoon by the REV. CANON J. DENTON THOMPSON, M.A., rector of Southport.  The offertories during the day realised the handsome sum of £428 13s 4-1/2d, about £43 in excess of last  year, and probably the largest school anniversary collection in England.  The result, achieved in a working class population in a time of crisis like the present, speaks highly in favour of simple services and Evangelical doctrines.
 
ENNERDALE NOTES
 
With more favourable weather, field work has considerably improved, and fishing rapidly so.  There appears to be an enlarged acreage of land under cultivation, and large flocks of lambs have been drafted to their more hilly homes.
