cro.-sing the street from W. L.
Motley's feed store, going to-
iwcai-d the City Drug Co., he
was accidentally run over by a
cSar driven by Mr. W. H. Pruitt.
JlThe-car knocked Mr. Pening-;
m down, and he seemed to i
■ive bounced up and caught in
flje front part of the car on the
strings and the axle of the car
and hung there by his arms,
which no doubt saved his life.
l His left leg was broken in two
ttolaces just above the ankle, and
■Htas considerably bruised up on
jThis body. Mr. Pruitt not see-
v'ing him till his car had struck
llim, he was unable to stop the

logton several feet.
0 It is said that Mr. Pruitt j
?S&id his attention was attracted
something on the opposite,
gde of the street, and when he!
$oked ahead again he had
truck Mr. Penington.

STORE TO CLOSE
In .the rush of making up our
paper last week, we got the ar-
t u-b telling of Mr. A. S. Tiliery
taking his little girl to Man-
gum for an operation, mixed in
with the "Hogwallow News",
which should not have been
done, and we ask our readers to
overlook the same and we will
try and do better in the future.
