Bones of His Right Wrist Mashed and Otherwise
Injured-Fiver Other Occupants of Car Es
capewith Minor Injuries.
Wednesday evening Arnold Tueller
wife and two children, Clarence
Tueller and Oliver Tueller, the latter
at the wheel, started out for a pleas
ure ride in Rudolph Tueller's Chand
ler car. They were speeding along
on the Paris road at about 26 miles
an hour and in making the turn just
west of the slough bridge, the car
veered too close to .the edge of the
grade. Oliver gave the car a quick
turn to get back into the road. This
caused the left- rear wheel to slip off
the grade and the car'turned over
Arnold Tueller and family were In
the back seat. The wife and two
children escaped without a scratch,
while Arnold sustained only slight
bruises on his right hip and leg.
Clarence was pinned under the car
and It was at first throught he was
seriously Injured, bht when removed
from beneath the wreck It was learn
ed that the weight of the car had
not injured his chest. However, his
left leg was badly bruised and cut
and his right ankle slightly cut.
Oliver was more unfortunate than
the rest as he received a bad gash on
the left leg, just above the knee, and
every bone In hts right wrist was
broken and the tendons lacerated.
The Injured w^re brought to the
Montpelier hospital and their In
juries given prompt attention,
this writing) Thursday morning, Dr.
Ashley stated that he thought It
would be possible to save Oliver s
* hand, although the bones are so bad
ly broken right at the wrist Jolnf
that amputation may hie necessary.
Oliver, It will be remembered.

Sunday's contest was a little on
th« ragged order, but th« Camel« had
barely escaped death on the battle
field in Prance. He was wounded
in the leg by an explosive machine
gun bullet on the 28th of last July
and laid where he fell tor five hours
and then crawled a half mile before
being picked up by stretcher bearers.
The injuries he received Wednes
day night are very likely to result
more seriously to him than the
wound received in battle.
The car was badly wrecked—the
wind shield smashed, steering wheel
broken into splinters, the top demol
ished and other parts of the car
After the above was placed in type
we learned that Oliver had brought
his father and mother—Mr. and Mrs.
Rq^olph Tuellef—In from Geneva
Wednesday afternoon, and that they
were to leave yesterday morning for
for San Francisco, in response to a
message stating that their son Char
lie was very low in a government
hospital. Charlie had served nearly
a year In Siberia. He was operated
on for appendicitis last winter and
afterwards contracted pneumonia.
As soon as he was able to make the
trip he was sent to San Francisco,
arriving there June 16. His mother
had received one letter from him
slnce he arrived, In which he stated
he wax very weak but' was receiving
splendid care and thought he would
soon be able to come home.
