Mr, S. K. Lnundon met with an accident
which h", proved to be a painful one, on
his return from the fair at Elyrla Friday
evening. He was in company with Mrs.
Laundoo and only a few miles on their
way. , They attempted to pass a vehicle,
when the other party's horses stopped sud
denly and caused the wheels to be locked
with Mr.' Laundon's buggy, completely
demolishing the front wheel and hurling
them to the ground, the horse running a
short distance and stopping. Mr. Laundon
says it was all done in an instant, and he is
unable to tell how he was injured. The in
juries consist ol a disiocated shoulder and
a few other slight bruises which, with
care, he is likely to be about in a few
days.. Mrs. Laundon escaped uninjured.
On Thursday of last week we went over
to Elyria. Tho forenoon was devoted to

an unusual large attendance was there.
There was a large display of machinery
and agricultural implements, the floral
hall was tastefully decorated and well
filled with all classes of fine goods. The
taoles in the fruit hall could scarcely bear
the burden of the products of the bounti
ful harvest. The poultry show was excel

been for many years.' The society

the ground of Insufficiency ot the affidavits,
which the court took under advisement.
