A Peculiar Accident.
During all of Mr. H. F. Addy's thir
ty years' experience as a blacksmith
he had never before had a job on his
hands similar or in any manner like,
the work he did on Friday afternoon
in cutting off a wagon hub band from
around a little child's neck. Mr. Ad
dy says the child was apparently
about 18 months or two years old. The
baby is a grandchild of Mr. H. W.
Bowles, who brought it to the black
smith shop. He and the other mem
bers of the family had worked faith-1
fully in trying to get the band off, and
had given up in despair when Mr. Ad
dy was thought of. It was a new one
on Mr. Addy but he of course knew
right away what to do. With his bolt
clips he cut the iron band, and "Dr."
Addy "performed the operation" in a
successful way and the little "patient"
was restored to the arms of its now
happy but once frightened relatives.
The baby had been playing with the
band, and, as all babies can do things
that grown people can't do, had man
aged to get the ring around its neck.

hundreds of friends here of the bank

ever, that the position which was ten
dered him -in Charlotte offered bettei
