row Escape
Sunday morning an accident
happened between here mill

Wolle, who was taking ii crowd
to the Sunday School Bally at
Hig Spring Church, lost con?
trol of his machine on a sharp
Icurve where the course of the
river was changed when the
pike was constructed, and the
car jumped over a steep bank,
turning a complete somersault
and lauding right side up in
the river. Dr. W. G. Painter,
who was driving his car c ose
behind, assisted in the res
cue work. Only one or two

which was very steep, for ad is
I lance of about thirty feet, when
lit bit a rock and turned com?
pletely over. The fact lhat the
top was up probably saved some
of tlie party .from being thrown
out. The car was removed from
the river and drought hack un?
der its own power. The wind
shield was broken und the top
torn up was the only damage lo
the car.
