AND FOUR ARE HCKI
(Special to The Bulletin.)
Wlllimantic, Oct. 16. Four men were
tejuredi this afternoon shortly after S
o'clock when a Chevrolet touring car In
which they were riding overturned, on
the Mansfield highway, near- Mansfield
Center. The driver of the car, Edward
Shaw, a cook at the Connecticut -Agricultural
College, was at first thought to
be suffering from concussion of the
brain. Later It was reported from the
hospital that his condition is not seri
ous. The three men who were passen
gers in the car, but whose names could
not be learned, had been employed at
the college on construction work and
were returning to Storrs for their pay.
Shaw tried to pass a wagon in the road
ahead of him, it being alleged that his
car was traveling at a fast clip, and
striking sand, skidded and turned over,
hurling the occupants for some distance.
The injured men were picked up by
William Liberty and Robert MacDonald,
students at the Connecticut Agricultural
College, and were rushed to St. Joseph's
hospital in Willimantic. B. S. Bliss, the
driver of the wagon, was thrown to. the
ground as the automobile sideswiped his
vehicle and received cuts 1 about the
head. All but Shaw were able to leave
the hospital during the evening.
The Chevrolet was a complete wreck.
It is understood that Shaw had been
at the office of Attorney Samuel B.
Harvey in this city to straighten out an
attachment that had been placed on his
car and upon leaving the city took the
others with him, leaving the city at a
fast rate. From official sources it is
also learned that Shaw faces a more
serious charge than that brought
against him in the attachment, but the
charge was not stated.
Officer Kelley was summoned to in
vestigate the accident and started out
with his Ford, but upon reaching a
point at the foot of Spring hill his ma
chine ran out of gas and he started to
walk the remainder of the distance. He
had walked part way up the hill when
he saw an Overland car approaching and
he hailed the driver, who stopped and
asked him if he wanted a ride, Officer
Kelley having shown his badge. When
the officer answered in the affirmative
the driver of the car stepped on the ac
celerator and drove straight at the offi
cer, striking him a glancing blow, caus
ing Officer Kelley to fall toward the
machine. To keep from rolling beneath
the wheels Kelley held to the mudguard
and was dragged nearly to the top of
the hill before he dared let go and roll
clear. The car disappeared in the dis
tance, n"t stopping to ascertain the in
jury to the officer. The numfcer of the
car. however, was secured and reported
to the state for Investigation.

FOUR WALLS-OR A HOME?
Back in the days of the cave dwellers, what we
modernists call "home" was simply a rough shel-
! ter into which the family gathered at dark for pro-
! tecticn against the elements.
THEY HAD neither lights nor furniture, rugs or
draperies. Compare that with the modern home of
today, and whether you believe in the Darwinian
theory of evolution or not, you'll thank your lucky
stars that you are of the present generation and
not of the distant past.
