While at work in Westwood Pit on Tuesday, Robert Jamieson (27) was caught in a fall of shale in his working place and received injuries from which he died. Jamieson had just left some workmates, with whom he had been sitting, taking his "piece," and a miner nearby road, hearing the rumble of the falling shale, went to investigate. finding no trace of his unfortunate fellow-worker, he at once summoned assistance. Working frantically, the men succeeded in clearing the shale from Jamieson, who was rushed to the pit-head, where life was found to be extinct. A popular figure in the village, deceased is survived by his widow.

The happy memories we have of them.

The voiced we loved are still,

Three places are vacant in our home,

Thar no one can ever fill.
