TOOWOOMBA, April 13.
Early this morning a serious accident occurredon the Main Range to John Davey, a lengthsman.
The early up goods train, on reaching the big ironbridge near Harlaxtoton, ran over Davies, taking his leg clean off, and the engine was turned off the road. It appears that Davies, while returning home from duty, lost his way, and it being misty on the ranges, he fell over the embankment on to the line, and lost consciousness, and remained there until the train passed over him. The engine, which was derailed, was subsequently got on the line, and carne to Toowoomba. The accident caused some delay in the later trains.

THE LAW COURTS.
FRIDAY, May 17.
(Before Mr. R. A. Ranking, P. M.)
An elderly man, rejoicing in the somewhat extraordinary name of Sixsmith,
pleaded guilty to having been drunk and
disorderly in the public streets. He
was arrested by Constable Dobbyn, and, to
the Bench, stated that he had just arrived
from Sydney by steamer, and that meeting
with a few good-natured Mount Morganites,
took "jist a glass or two, yer washup, and
got knocked a cock." The half-dozen Smith
was directed to pay a fine of 5s, or, in default, repose in the cells for a period of 24 hours.
