BADLY HURT BY MULE.
The oldest son of Mr. and Mrs. J. E.
Majors was quite badly hurt by being
kicked by a mule last Saturday about
one o’clock. Mr. Majors had just
turned the mules into the barn from the
pasture to feed them and was hunting
for their baiters. The mule that kicked
the little fellow is of a nervous disposi-
tion and will not allow a dog or chicken
to pass behind it without kicking at
them. While Mr. Majors was hunting
for the animals halter6 he told the
children, who were just outside the
barn, to stay away as this mule might
kick them. Hardly had.the words been
spoken when he heard the mule’s heels
hit the granary behind it, and hearing
no outcry supposed that the dog had
passed behind the mule, at which it had
kicked. He kept on hunting in the
manger for the halters, where he sup-
posed they muBt be, when he heard one
of his children crying softly. He quick-
ly stepped around behind the animals
and found the oldest boy lying on the
stable floor behind this mule. He picked
him up and seeing that he was uncon-
scious look him to the water trough and
bathed his face. The child gave one
long sigh and straightened out and Mr.
Major thought he had expired. After
applying more water the little fellow
commenced to show signs of life in a
moment or two. Medical aid and an
examination resulted in the discovery
that the left ear had been badly cut,
but how seriously the head was hurt
could not be told then. Although ap-
parently conscious and in no pain the
little fellow would not talk any until
Monday morning, when he told his par-
ents that he felt no ill effects from the
Mr. Majors informed us that the boy
bad only received a glancing blow from
the mule’s hoof, as tbe imprint of its
hoof was found on the side of the gran-
ary later and if the child had received
the whole force of the kick it would
have undoubtedly killed him instaDtly.
HER SIXTH BIRTHDAY
HUGHES ON FIRST BALLOT
Saratoga, N. Y., Sept. 15-Governor
Charles Evans Hughes was renominated
by the New York state Republican con
vention this afternoon, on the first bal-
lot, receiving 827 votes. Wadsworth
received 151 and Stewart 31. William
Barnes, Jr., cf Albany, leader of the
opposition, moved to make the nomina-
tion unanimous, which was done.
With the ironing out of most of the
wrinkles which had threatened to turn
the second day’s session of the conven-
tion into one of sensational strife, the
convention resumed its sessions soon
after 2 p. m , today, with something re-
sembling real enthusiasm.
DISPERSION SALE OF
SHORT HORN CATTLE
W. H. Menihan has disposed of his
entire herd of thoroughbred short horn
cattle and will no longer take the lead
as breeder and raiser of the fiamous
Durham stock. This herd is known far
and wide and at every stock show ex-
hibited they have carried off many first
prizes and the herd as a whole have
outclassed every herd in this country.
In disposing of this herd, consisting of
twenty head, the country is not to lose
them, as local parties are the purchas-

the happiest of happy days for Cora
McCorkle. On that day she was to
reach the siith milestone of her exist-
ence and the day must be appropriate-
ly celebrated. Nothing could be nicer
than to gather together all her young
acquaintances from town and country
for that purpose. Consequently, forty
invitations were extended to that many
girl friends to congregate at her home,
together with their dollies, big or little.
At the appointed hour thirty-nine
sweet little misses and their inseparable
companions, their dollies, responded to
Imaginary entertainments of nearly
every description were indulged in by
these sweet little souls for the first hour
of their visit. A peanut hunt, arranged
by the little hostess’ mama, consumed
a half hour’s time and was highly en-
tertaining. Refreshments were then
announced and the little misses ushered
into the house, where with the light of
day shut out by drawn curtains and ar-
tificial light from the Ras lightB and
candles shedding their restful rays over
everything, ;all| in turn were refreshed
with ice cream, cake and bananas. The
Doctor and Ye Editor had the pleasure
of partaking of these delicacies in com-
pany witn these coming makere of hap-
py American homes.
The gifts, both useful and ornament-
al, were so numerous that they filled
the top of a small table and the sight of
so many tokens to remember the occa-
sion by filled the little hostess’ cup of
joy to overflowing.
