Football In The Streets - Some lads were playing football in the Park-road on Saturday afternoon when the ball was kicked into the Old Baptist yard. A child named Harry Tew, in attempting to climb the iron railings, pierced his finger with one of the spikes seriously injuring it. He was subsequently taken to Dr. Baker's surgery, where the finger was dressed.
