fittle Will Tandy the son of Mr
WT Tandy cashier of the City J
Blink came near being the victim ofI
aserious accidpnt a few days ago J
On his way home from school he
took hold of a telephone wire that
had sagged nearly to the ground
Atone end of the wire a mule was I
attached to draw the wire taunt
Without knowing that Will was hang
ing to the wire the man in charge
started the mule and with a sudden
lurch the little boy was drawn sev
eral feet from the groundand before
he knew it he was too high to let
loose But he didnt lose his pres
ence of mind and pluckily held on
Until he was seen hanging in midair
something like 25 feet from mother
earth Fortunately the tightening
of the wire drew the boy to one of
the crossarms and he wrapped his
legs around the pole where he re
mained until he vas taken down
He waS not in a position to relin
quish his hold on the wire and get
down the post to the ground The
little fellow had both hands badly
mashed by the wire being drawn ov
er the crossarm as it became tighter
and tighter by the mule pulling it
Will had an experience that will be
a warning to him the balance of his
days The man that took him down
says that he was so frightened at the
little boys predicament that he
hardly had presence of mind to go
up the pole after the boy He was
also afraid that he would not be
able to hold on to the wire until he
could reach him Had the boy fall I
en he would undoubtedly have been
killed or maimed for life
