was just starting home, having hi

Mr. Cameron turned their course
and in so doing the vehicle was upset,
turning completely over upon tho oc

aged and in feeble health, had her
nose and right cheek bone broken and
sustained a severe sprain in one of her
ankles. Her son recoived a frightful
gash on his right temple and serious
injuries to his neck. Mrs. Brogan fain

escaped without a scratch. Mrs Cam

Hon.. C. C. Beekman, where she now
remains as comfortable as could be ex

The Ashland "Tidings" reports the
rotten egging of Mike Colwell, the sub
contractoron tho Ashland and Lakeview
mail route, by the boys of that town.
The inciting cause was the fact that
Colwell refused to pay a little boy who
had rode and carried the mail for him
through sunshine and storm for many
weeks. He not only refused to pay
the boy but gingled the money in his
pocket and told him to get it if he
coulC This enraged the Ashland boys
and they robbed an old hen of her
embryo progeny and proceeded to pro
pel them against old Mike's carcass.
Our sympathies are with the poor old
hen. It is wrong for boys to rob hen's
nests, especially if the hens are setting,
but if such an outrage has to be com
mitted we know of no more deserving
target to project them against than a
man who would deliberately wrong a
little boy out of his honest earnings.
