A Boy's Terrible Accident and Heroic
Conduct Pipe Foundry Starts l
Bund of Merry Orgranlwd.
Oswtno, June 20. I.ast Sunday after
noon George Neuman, the fourteen-year old
on of Mr. Keuman who lives about one
mile north-west of Oswego on Elk Rock
bill, met with very serious accident. He
u out on hit pony looking up some cattle.
The pony (rot frightened and threw George
olT, falling on his leg and breaking it just
above, the ankle. The bona was terribly
crushed and protruded fire or six Inches.
Dr. Sayler was called immediately. He
found that amputation would be necesary,
and had the boy removed to the Good Sa
maritan hospital where, assisted by his
brother, Dr. V. H. Saylor, he amputated
the leg just below the knee. At last ac
counts George was getting along finely.
The boy, who by the way is small for bis
age, displayed pluck and nerve that would
be creditable to any man. He was quite a
distance from home when he got hurt, and
realizing that be could not get home alone,
by some means he managed to catch his
pony and get on him and ride home. There
is Iron in that boy's make up.
The wife of Alex. Rankin has been quite
sick, but is improving slowly under the
skillful care of Dr. Saylor.

Your correspondent would like to give a
word of advice to the boys who sometimes
come to Oswego to play base ball. Boys,
don't bring bottles in your pockets. Don't
get drunk; it is unmanly, a disgrace to
yourselves, and will bring the gray hairs of
your parents in sorrow to the grave. In
this connection I have heard that there are
one or two men here who are celling intox
icants contrary to the law. If they do not
wish to contribute quite liberally to the com

word to the wise should be sufficient.
