He saw his danger hut could not work his way Imek and the ear toppled over Into the ditch. Mrs. Turner attempted to jump and was caught under the edge of the ear on the hillside. She was liadly cut with glass rrom the windshield, had tier collar hone and up|ier arm crushed and was terribly bruised. Mr. Tur- j ner was pinned under the ear and escaping gasoline alnuist blinded him. He was bruised through the shoulders and arms, hut it is not lie- j lieved that his injuiies are serious.!

Allay, were coining along the road behind the Turner car ami soon reached the scene. They were met up the hill a abort way by one of the Jsiys run ning for help.

A | passing ear was hailed and Mr. anil Mrs. Turner were hurried to the Waxaharhie sanitarium where they were given immediate attention. On examination It was learned that Mrs. Turner had a large piece of glass to enter her right cheek and extend down a distance or two Inch es to the neck. When a represenla-1 tive of this pa|ier reached the sanitarium only a pleix* of tlie glass had been gotten out and the physU elans were probing for the remain der.

Tin- ear did not go to the ls>t tom of the ditch which makes me sure that i was not running more than twelve to fifteen miles when the accident occurred.” It was entirely too early for the attending surgeons to make predic tion as to the final result of the ac cident, hut they were lio|S‘ful that Mrs. Turner, if not seriously hurt internally, would recover.
