4 Seriously Injured in Ac- -,
1 cident in Huntington
While on his way to assume his Sab
bath duties as superintendent of the
Sunday school of Central M. E. Church
South, 8. M. McClure. 49, of 1044 Mad-
ison-av., : was, run down and seriously"
injured by an unidentified motorist at
3:15 o'clock Sunday, morning. Mr. Mc
Clure was struck by an automobile,
said to have been speeding, as he
crossed Jefferson -a v.. at Eleventh-st.
His eleven-year-old daughter, Eliza
beth, standing on the curbstone, saw
her father's body tossed into the air
by the machine, which disappeared to
ward the western limits of the oity
without stopping to aid the victim. At
a late hour that night, police had been
unable to ascertain the identity of the
car or its driver.
Mr. McClure's right leg and right
shoulder were fractured and he had
suffered also a slight fracture of the
skull, it was stated after he had been
removed to the Kessler-Hatfleld hos
pital In the car of a passerby. He will
recover, barring unforseen , complica
tions, said hospital authorities. The
leg was broken below the knee when a
wheel of the car passed over it
Although the happening waa seen by
a number of eye-witnesses none was
able to give definite description of the
mysterious automobile. One man sus
pected of having been the driver Of the
cat- was questioned by the police, but
he was not placed under arrest, hav
ing offered an unimpeachable aHbi, it
was said. .. ''''
The neighborhood In which the vic
tim lives was thrown into & state of
Indication by the affair and its shadow
was marked at services at the church
of which he was a member and offi
cial, Mr. McClure, a carpenter, has
long been held ln high esteem in the
community tn wltlcn he lives and many
condolences and offers of assistance In
obtaining the arrest of the driver of
the mysterious car were received by
his family yesterday. He is married,
and has two children, Donald and
Elizabeth. . ''. ,
With the latter, Mr. McClure left his
residence for Sunday school services.
At the street corner where the acci
dent occurred, he left the child upon
the curb, because he feared he would
be late and her small legs could not
take the strides his were capable of.
Only a moment after admonishing her
to be careful and to follow him with a
group of her young friends who were
approaching, he stepped in front of the
speeding automobile.- Huntington Her

BADLY INJURED
A Broken Back Results
From Fall From Mov
ing: Train.
Jay Northup Wood is In a hospital
at Cleveland, Ohio, with a broken back,
and with no Tiope held out by the phy
sicians for his recovery. He fell from
the cab of a locomotive last Sunday in
the Cleveland yards of the Big Four
railroad. .
He Is a son of Dr. H. A. Wood of
Buffalo, and a grandson of Col. Jay H.
Northup of Louisa. A telegram was
received here about 10 a. m Monday
and Col. Northup and daughter. Miss
Hermla, left at 12:60 for Cleveland.
The physicians say the young man
may live a few weeks or only a few-
days. The Bpinal cord is cut and he Is
paralysed from the hips down. His
father is wfth him.
The accident ocourred when North
up was leaning out of 'the window of
the locomotive cab, looking for a sig
nal. The arm rest gave way and he
pitched headlong to the ground. He
was picked up and hurried to the hos
pital and given every attention pos
sible.' He has been conscious' and
cheerful all the time. :
During his childhood Northup of
ten visited in Lou.sa. He is about 25
years old. A few years ago he took up
railroad, work and was very enthu
siastic about It. That he should be the
victim of an accident that seems cer
tain to coBt him his life at so early
an age arouses deep sorrow and sym
pathy in the, hearts of his friends and
the friends of the family.
