young men and two
young women in a rig had J
miraculously escaped ser
ious injury Monday night when
the rig went over an embank
ment on the London road about
six miles south o f the city.
The rig was at the crest o f the
hill when one o f the horses
swerved. One o f the occupants,
thinking the horse waa about to
lie down, got out o f the rig to
see what the trouble might be.
The night was so dark that the
road was inviaible and the young
man was surprised to be precipi
tated down the embankment and
immediately followed by the rig.
The distance was twenty fee t or
more. The young woman in the
rear seat was caught in the top
and pinned under the framework
o f the vehicle, but aside from a
few bruises to one limb was e x
tricated without serious injury.
The other occupants fell out l a te
were but slightly
scratched. The horses did not
fall down and the rig was still in
condition to carry the party home.

from the other side had forced

Sentinel : A test haa come to the
farmers o f the region o f Cottage Grove
to show whether they have the capaoity
and the disposition to g e t together and
to help themselves.
Greek* developed the proverb: “ The
gods help those who help them selves."
It was an old Roman'who was repre
sented as saying to hia frien d : "T h e
fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars
but in ourselves, that we are under-
lings.” It waa in this ancient soil that
the fable o f Hercules and the man
with the ox cart grew up. The cart
had stuck in the mud ; and instead o f
trying to pry it out himself, the man
sat down and tegan to pray to H er
cules to help him out. Suddenly H er
cules appeared and said to him :
" F ir s t put your own shoulder to the
