K, C. Hurlbert, the real estate
bustler and all around good fellow,
had an interesting experience with
poison oak last week that he will
not soon forget, For several days
his face resembled a full moon or a
large sunflower in full bloom, and
his eyes were almost, out of sight.
His smiling countenance has again,
however( resumed somewhere near
normal proportions, and he says his
frieuds are beginning to recognize
him once more.
AV. O. Tucker, chief engineer at
the St Johns Lumber company's
mill, met with an unusual and at
the same time very painful acci
dent a couple of weeks ago. He
was engaged in cutting some grass
and weeds with a scythe around his
home in this place wbeu a burdock
flew up and struck him on the ball
of the left eye. That member be
came so sore and inflamed as a re
sult from its contact with the poi
sonous weed that ati operation be
came necessary. The injured part
of his body is getting' along nicely
now, however, aud he will no doubt
be able to use his peeper as usual in
a few days.
