FATAL ACCIDENT ON SNOWDON

Mr. Thos. George Dismore, solicitor, of Liverpool, was killed on Sunday by a fall down a precipice on Snowdon. The unfortunate gentleman was a member of the firm of Thornley and Dismore, Liverpool, and his father is a well-known jeweller and goldsmith of the same city. On Saturday last Mr. Dismore, who had recently returned from a Swiss tour, started for a trip in Wales, accompanied by Mr. Norton, a Liverpool solicitor, and on Sunday morning they attempted an ascent of Snowdon on the Llamberis side. Although an expert mountaineer, and having whilst in Switzerland made an ascent of the Matterhorn in safety, the deceased gentleman missed his footing and fell, sustaining fatal injuries. Mr. Dismore was treasurer of the Liverpool Junior Reform Club, and a notice of the fatality posted on the board of that institution caused general sorrow.

BIRKENHEAD MODEL YACHT CLUB MATCH FOR THE CHALLENGE CUP

The second match for the season of the Birkenhead Model Yacht Club came off on Saturday, July 26th, and was everything which could satisfy the lovers of this national sport, and gratify those who desire its promotion. The 'Britannia' steamer was engaged to accompany the yachts ; and, although the rain which fell so plentifully in the forenoon no doubt deterred many, especially the ladies, from venturing on the water, the whole afternoon continued dry and clear, with a warm sunshine, rewarding those more adventurous fair who, in equal proportions to the hardier sex, followed with anxious interest the varied incidents of the competitors. There was an excellent 'brass band' on board, which throughout the voyage played a succession of the newest and most favourite airs, polkas, and valses. Some of the younger and gayer of the pleasure-seeking company happily availed themselves of this to enjoy the gaiety of the dance.

The prize was a very handsome fruit-basket, having all round a richly chased and elegant wreath of cornflowers, interspersed with leaves ; the wheat ears in frosted silver. These were supported upon trellis work and the bowl was highly burnished. The plate is the manufacture of Mr. Dismore, jeweller and silversmith, Bold-street, and did credit to his house. The value of the article was £24, although named as £20, the difference having been contributed by a few of the principal members of the club.
