LEG BROKEN BY TRUCK
Jack, the nine-year old son of Mr.
And Mrs. Obcr L. Shannon, suffered a
broken thigh Wednesday afternoon
when a truck driven by Jim Trout, of
Mead, struck the little fellow as he
was crossing west Main street near
his home. The bumper struck the
lad on the thigh breaking the bone.
Had he not grabbed hold o fthe bum
per and held on for dear life until
the machine was stopped, he would
countless have sustained more serious
Injuries. It seems that Jack and an
other lad were behind a wagon going
In the opposite direction and did not
see the truck approaching, so thae
Jack practically stepped in front of it.
This makes the seventh person in
jured In an automobile accident here
within a week, but fortunately none
have been killed
