A SAD ACClllNT.
Young Son of Abe Tourtilott Seri
ously Injured While at Hay.
Ernest, tho 8-year old son of
Abe Tourtilot who lives a mile or
so northwest of town, met with a
very painful and serious accident
while at play Friday, which may
cost him his life. While visiting
at the home of his grandfather,
who lives east of the river, the
boy was playing around a hay
derrick, sliding down a trolley.
lie either failed to catch the rope
on one occasion or the trolley
suddenly broke, no one can tell,
but at any rate, the lad fell and
the hay fork fell on him, inflict
ing a terrible gash in his skull
and rendering him unconscious,
the condition of which he is still
in at this writing.
Doctors were phoned for and
Delamater, from this place,
promptly responded, accompan
ied by the boy's father. Three
doctors from Butler wero also in
attendance and everything that
can be done in a medical way to
save his life is administered. The
chances are small for recovery.
To Start Brick Plant.
H. M. Booth and brother-in-law,
Mr. Jas. Hedges, of Spring
field, Mo., have purchased the
brick plant north of town and are
now making preparations to be
gin oierations. The machinery
will be overhauled and many im
provements made before the real
work begins. A thoroughly
competent man has been sent for
to oversee the work. It is in
tended to first manufacture tile,
and fcince Mr. Booth has already
a concrete block machine; no
doubt, it will be put in operation
The old plant has been an eye
sore to the people for a number
of years and as the present own
ers are reliable business men, it
insures it a successful venture.
With this new enterprise and
others coming, Rich Hill can
hope tx agaiu keep moving in the
right direction, iiie boom js
Uncle Billy Yevtes Hurt.
The Metz Times gives an ac
count of Uncle Billy Yeates sus
taining a number of painful in
juries from a fall while in a well
and being overcome by tho gas
eous air. He had been working
at digging the well and had tired
o!T a shot. He then proceeded to
work, and called to his grandson
to bring some weeds to fan out
the foul air. When he returned
ho found Mr. Yeato on tho
ground, face downward and suf
fering from inhaling the gas
that always follows these bl.its.
He was raised almost to the topi
when ho fell to the bottom, ap
parently lifeless. Then ha was
taken to the house, and medical
aid wan summoned. He re
gained consciousness in about'
half an hour and is now getting
along fairly well, ulthough slight
ly bruised up from tho U1L

T!se In ference Journal, in its
tlrst words to its friends, the re
tailers, says: "Spend your cah
with the hx;al newspaper. Don't
invest in advertising methods
that are unproductive. See tLat
your newspaper naa gets the
money, and whvn he is duty
bound to take up your fight
against the mail order houses,
he will willingly do it. Entailers
remember that the country edi
tor can help you in the most sur
prising manner. lie can do
more to educate the people of his
circulation district aga',nt buy
ing from mail order houses than
all the arguments of the retailers
"He will print articles about
patronizing home industries,
about keeping money at home,
about providing employment for
home clerks and home drivers
and home cashiers, and if he asks
the farmers who it is that credits
them for months at a time when
the season is bad, he will soon
have their pi ide aroused. Thev
will "sit up and take notice."
The result will be that they will
trade at home.
