ANOTHER ACCIDENT at the mill stile,
Kirkby Malham, occurred to a man who was driving a horse and Cart on Wednesday.
When meeting with something unexpectedly the horse swerved, and the man
was thrown out, though not seriously injured. Still this dangerous place
calls for the authorities to do something for the safety of the public.
SHOW and GALA :
The first of what it is hoped will be an
annual show of agricultural and horticultural stock was held at Airton
on Saturday last. The event was a decided success and the promoters had
reason to be gratified at the result of their enthusiastic work.
There were over 200 entries in the classes
for cattle, sheep, foals, plants, vegetables, etc. and over 90 in the
sports. The ladies deserve special mention because of the quality of their
exhibits, which produced some keen competition and found the judges a
difficult task. The exhibits in the plants, vegetable, poultry, egg, and
bread section, were benched in a large tent. The centre was occupied by
a fine display of plants, &c, from the gardens of Mr J W Morkill and Mr
H G Tunstill.
Thanks to a fine day, the takings for admission
were very satisfactory, and the committee deserve congratulations on having
a balance of a few pounds as a result of their first venture.

MorkilI, JP, of Newfield Hall, who gave a short address at the opening,
