THE - CLAY . CITY J. E. Burgher, Publisher. Vie are Here te Help Clay City, the Surrounding Country and Ounelves. ' PUBLISHED EVERY. THUHSDA VOL. XXVL CLAY CITY. KX. THURSDAY. JUNE, 1C J02J. - NO. Automobile Accident It is with regret that the Tiroes must record the first 6erious au tomobile accident happening in Powell county, while several Fords and one Buick have previ ously overturned and demolished tops, up uutil Sunday morning last no accident had occurred to seriously injure any one in our county from automobile since their introduction here six-ears ago. James Willie Dunn, of Win Chester, driving a Buick road ster Sunday morning overturned his machine in making a curve on the new state aid road and sustained three broken ribs and internal injuries, and for a time wiyj thought to be in dying con dition. After the accident he was removed to the home of Mrs. Phillips in this city and later in the day was carried to his home i i Winchester by ambulance. Twojoung ladies in the machine escaped injury with the excep tion of one slight cut on a hand. The wreck was viewed by scores of people on Suuday but was removed Monday. When the narrow condition of the road is considered, and the abrupt curveson the same, it is remarkable that up to this time no accidents had occurred, with the extreme amount of travel ou this road going both ways at all hours. There is bound to be ma ny accidents in the future unless the road is widened in places and seme of the dangerous curves re moved. Railing should also be placed alpng the high embank, ments if we respect Jhe words, "safety first." Since this road is maintained by the state it seems to be up-to "the authorities at Frankfort.

One day each week will be given to this road until the busy season is past when two days will be devoted to its mi provement.
