Mrs. Ralph Jones
When Thumb is Shot
Full discharge of a shotgun into
one of her thumbs, which necessi
tated amputation, did not keep
Mrs. Ralph Jones of Butter creek
from being in full charge of her
senses. Mrs. Jones, formerly Ola
Straight, had just shot an eagle
last Thursday. She stopped at the
woodshed for wood on the way
back to the house. Laying the gun
on the chopping block and pick
ing up an armful of wood, she
reached to pick the gun up and as
she did so the trigger apparently
caught some place on her dress,
for the gun went off, sending the
shot into the thumb of the hand
holding the wood.
Going to the house she wrapped
the injury, but as blood flowed
freely through the dressing, she
made a tourniquet for the arm
above. She then called the Bros
nan farm and wrote a note for
Mr. Jones, who was absent. John
Brosnan brought her to the hos
pital in town and she underwent
amputation of the injured digit.
She spent Friday in the hospital
and returned home Saturday. Her
recovery from the accident is re
ported to be progressing rapidly.
I hereby announce myself as an
independent candidate for the office
of county assessor at the General
