A 'ple justice was done to the good things provided. Word wans sent around for all to come-women and children: but scarcely any of the ladies put in an appearance. But, notwithstanding the absence of the cheering influence of the fair sex, the scene soon became both a cheerful and animated one. Some kind muslcians mounted the new boiler top, and there discoursed heart-stirring strains to the crowd below. The miners were not long in beginning to findtheir toes tingle, and at it ...

Accident Fund. [Newspaper Article] — Miners' Advocate and Northumberland Recorder — 22 July 1874

Accident Fund. TIIE accidents which have occurred to men employed in and about collieries during the last few months have far exceeded the number which happened in any previous year for a corresponding period. This, no doubt, to a very great extenit, has arisen from the increased number of hands em plyed at the various collieries; and, as each of the collieries are extending their ,perations, we may still further expect that accidents in a like ratio will continue to increase. Each of the collieries have what is known as an accident fund, to which each of its members contribute their equal quota, and out of this fund those who meet with accidents are paid £1 per week, so that when four or five (which is frequently the case) at one colliery are on the fund, the contributions become very heavy on the remainder. To give our readers an idea aos to the amount of money paid in support of these poor fellows who meet with accidents, we may instance one colliery where during the past nine mo...
