"It does not do to leave a live dragon out of your calculations, if you
live near him.”
John Ronald Reuel Tolkien
"On Monday last an inquest was held by T. M. Phillips, Esq., coroner, at
the Green Dragon, Upper Gornal, on the body of Thomas Oakley, a boy thirteen
years of age, employed at a stone pit at the Deepdale colliery, belonging to Mr.
B. Gibbons, jun. It appeared from the evidence of William Bradley, another boy
employed in the same pit, that the deceased had several times taken hold of the
skip all it was ascending the shaft, and dropped from it when it was a few yards
up. On Thursday last he was at work filling a skip, and when it was drawn up
laid hold of it, and continued hanging from it until the skip was within a few
yards of the top of the pit; he then let go, and fell with great violence to the
bottom of the pit, about thirty-seven yards. One of this thighs was broken, and
he was otherwise so much injured that when he was taken up he was dead. Verdict,
