Marionvillo Kxpress: Ther eleven-

last Thursday. A man by name of
Tubbs, driving team at Lamonavillo, fell

Frnnk Walker Painfully Injured.
Frank P. Walker, Republican nomi
nee for Shoriff, met with a very painful
though It is hoped not serious, Injury
while at his work on the Collins logging
railroad In Oreon township, yesterday af
ternoon. He runs the locomotive on the
road and assists In loading and unloading
cars. v liilo he was standing on a skid
log a loaded car passing knocked him off
with considerable violence, and he foil
backward about 8 feet striking on his
head and hip. He was conveyed to
his home and Dr. Morrow was summon
ed. The doctor found him suffering se-
vore pain, but no bones were broken,
and after administering such relief as
was possible, left him feeling considera
bly easier, and does not believe that any
serious results will follow, but that Mr.
Walker will be able to be around within
the next ten days or two weeks.
Frank has certainly experienced his
shave of misfortune within the past three
weeks. It was only a woek ago last Fri
day that he was called upon to mourn
the death nt his wife, from tlio shock of
which ho hadjust rocovered sufficiently
to resume his work.
Arm Seriously Injured.
We regret to learn of the serious injury
which befoll our old friend Christophor
F. Cropp, of Cropp Hill, on Saturday
evening last about 6 o'clock. Mr. Cropp
has some oil wells on his placo which he
pumps at regular intervals, and was en
gaged in that duty when he met with
this accident. In some manner bis left
arm was caught between the pitman and
crank of the rig, and before he could ex
tricate himself, the flesh and muscles of
the arm were nearly two-thirds torn off,
leaving the bones and ligaments bare in
many places. The lasceration is a fright
ful ono. Drs. J. W. and W. G. Morrow
were summoned and dressed the wounds
in the best possible manner, and to-day
their patient is doing as well as could be
expected under the very trying circum
stances. Mr. Cropp is a man past 62
years of ago, and naturally an injury of
this nature will be slow and difficult to
heal. We trust, howeyer, that he may
recover without serious complications
