Boy P y Iijurcd
A son of ' ryman of near
Sterling was o ated on at Law-
ton last Wednesday same being
made necessary by some injuries
he received by being run over
with a wagon while hauling coal
out of Elgin.
As told by Mr. Fryman his
son and Mr. Kitchen wen going
home from Elgin with coal on
their wagons. The boy was
walking along side of his wagon
and in some way fell under the
wagon one hind wheel passing
over both his ankles.
Mr. Kitchen picked the boy up
put him on his own wagon lead-
ing the boy's team behind. In go-
ing down a hill the boy fell off
Mr. Kitehen's wagon and a hind
wheel paused over the small of
the boy's back. The wagon had
2800 pounds of coal on it and the
boy was so badly injured that an
operation became necessary.

ed at the cause of such speed.
Some of the road has consider

was a few minute3 late. Wolcott
had gripped the steering wheel
so tight he could hardly Btand
when he got out of the car.
