Fred .Quick Hurt
Fred Quick met with an accident
yesterday obout a mile and a half this
side of Monmouth, which resulted in
his being seriously injured.
He was moving a load of household
goods from here for Samuel Jackson
and at the time had stopped the team
to fix the harness. In doing so he
stood in front of the horses, which
suddenly started, knocking - him down
and rnnning over him, badly cutting
his ankle and seyerely bruising him
about the hip and head.
The horses ran for a considerable
distance and finally ditched the load,
when they were caught.
, Mr. Quick was given every attention
and it is thought that he will not
suffer any permanent serious conse
quences' from the accident.
Good Business Bringer
Corvallis is reaping the benefit of the
building of the Carver railroad into the
Alsea timber district, a second large
sawmill company being organized there.
It is rumored that Carver will extend
this road from Monroe to Blackly,
tapping the Lake Creek country in Lane
county and turning that trade fnto
Corvallis: It would look as if it is up
to Eugene to sret busy before rival
towns divide up her best territory.
