. Tuesday evening of last week Bay
Alexander and Walter Taton took a
minister from northwest Haskell over
into Grant county, and on their way
home Ray, who was driving the
Ford, let go the steering wheel to
warm his hands when the car struck
some kinds of an obstruction in the
road and turned over. Walter Tat
on was thrown several feet from the
car and escaped with a few minor
bruises and scratches, but Bay was
caught under the car and was quite
seriously injured. Walter managed
to get him from under the car and
wrapped him up with a blanket and
went for assistance. They1 took him
back to the place where they had
left the minister and he seemed to
be getting along so well that he was
brought home Thursday. The report
was that he hadn't been able to eat
anything to speak of since the ac
cident, and as his appetite had re
turned he ate quite heartily and that
night, Thursday, he was taken much
worse and went into convulsions. Dr.
Ungles was called and also an osteo
path from Garden City. Sunday he
seemed considerably better, but that
n'ght he was worse again. The last
report is that he is getting along all
right now. It is said they were driv
ing quite fast when the accident oc
curred and they are indeed fortun
ate that they were both not killed.
