It was with much regret the news of the accident to Mr. t. Maguire, Curragh View, came to his friends in the county and outside. It happened that on Friday last he was schooling a young horse, and the animal endeavouring to throw him, failed, when it suddenly reared up and rolled over the unfortunate rider. When released it was found that Mr. Maguire was unconscious, and Dr. Coady was quickly on the scene. It was then found that Mr. Maguire had sustained a fracture of the skull and he was immediately removed to his residence at Curragh View, after which Surgeon McArdle and Dr. Lane Jovut word sent for, and arrived with promptitude.
Mr. J. J. Hazlett, C.E., was on Tuesday last the guest of the Kildare Rugby and Cricket Clubs at Miss Talbot’s Hotel. The occasion of his departure to take over a position in connection with the Land Commission in Dublin was availed of by his friends in Kidare to show their appreciation of him during the three years he had spent there. Some 20 members sat down to supper, and afterwards on his being moved to the chair Mr. P. Talbot, in a very happy speech made the presentation, on behalf of the committee, of a gold watch and chain to Mr. Hazlett, who suitably replied. A pleasant evening was spent.
Mrs. Elizabeth Waters of Hospital Street, Kildare, died on Tuesday last very suddenly at her residence. It was afterwards discovered that her death had resulted from an apopletic seizure. Much sorrow was felt at the demise of Mrs. Waters in the town, where she was so well known and deservedly popular. The funeral on Thursday was very largely attended by all classes in the town and district, and testified to the sympathy which is felt for her relatives.
