Last week as Mr. A. J. Ohn, who lives
near Shedd's was riding across a small
bridge, his horse broke through and threw
him violently forward, his head striking ou
a plank piece of timber at a point iu the
left eye brow, cutting a gash from that
point back to the top of the head and then
down to the left ear, and tearing the scal2
all down to the ear and temple, leaving' all
the skull in front of the ear and up to the
top of the head naked. The wuund was a
.frightful one but a physiciau was called and
-sewed up the wound and the man is getting
along all right.

Ashland Tidings: During the past eleven
mouths there have beef but seven deaths in
the portion of this valley between Phoenix
and the California line, and two of these
were the results of accidents, one being
from a fall from a horse and the other from
a rille shot. The territory includes the town
of Ashland and has a population of about
2800 people. This is certainly a good re
cord and accords with the claim made by
Ashland people that they have remarka
bly healthy climate.
