BOY, HIT VITH
Sad Occurrence at Lexington
Results in Death of Young
. Son of J. B. Carmichael
While playing ball with a number
of his school fellows on the school
grouds at Lexington last Wednesday
afternoon Eric -Carmichael ten-year
old sn of Mr. and Mrs. J. B. Oar
michael was struck on the head by i
bat thrown by Everett Zink, a boy
fifteen years of age and son ol A . M
Conflicting stories have reached this
office of just how the accident, so-call
ed, happened but from what we can
gather the smaller boys were playing
bail at the afternoon recess when the
older hoy tnkisg up a bat made a pass
at the ball, missing it, whereupon he
threw his bat in a careless way among
the boys. Not stopping at this how
ever, hi took up another bat and threw
it also with the result that the Car
raichaej lad, was hit on the head
The blow rendsred him unconscious for
a time but he recovered sufficiency to
walk home, a short distance from the
school grounds. He apparently was
lecoverirg from the injury but during
the night lapsed into unconsciousness
again. Dr. Chick was called from
lone to wait noon the chid and did all
that it was possible to do for him, but
it was of no avail and the boy died on
Saturdav of hemorrhage of the brain.
The occurrence has cast a gloom over
the little city of Lexington. Adeath
in the tamly of a irinnd is always a
(hock, but when it comes in a sndden
and accidental manner It is doubly
shoes ing. In this case two families
have been plunged into deep grief , a
young life Entitled out, and tne acci
dent is a sad one beyond measure.
Funeral services were held at the
Methodist church on Monday, Rev. E.
P. Warren, of Heppner, officiating
and the remains of the Jittle boy were
tenderly laid to rest in the Lexington
lit BAPTIST '
NEEL & CO. Props.
Everything neat and clean at popular prices.
