Accident to Boy

A very sad accident occurred to a boy-named Stonehouse, on the Great Central Railway, at Denaby Main one evening last week. It appears this poor little lad was playing at ball along with a few others-near to the shop occupied by Mr Venables.

The ball was accidentally knocked on to the railway, and this boy went down the bank to fetch it, when he was caught by a passenger train, and had both his feet cut off.

This unfortunate little chap now lies in the Mexborough Hospital.

This boy, Stonehouse, is very unfortunate, he having only just got going about again, after been injured for several weeks through being injured by a wagonette.
