He was extricated at once and taken to his home and Dr. Wood was called and did everything known to the pro fession to relieve the little sufferer, who bears his torture with wondef ul nerve.

The cozy, two-story home of John Stroud, near the Schlotzhauer place in the Bluff City school district, was entirely destroyed by fire about noon, Wednesday, November 30. Mrs. Stroud was alone in the home with two of her little grandchildren at the time, and before the fire was discovered a large portion of the sec ond story was in flames. She imme diately went upstairs with water and made a desperate effort to get control of the fire, and to save the little ones, which she succeeded in doing, but not until she had burned her face in a frightful manner. Dr. Proud was called and dressed the wounds. Mrs. Stroud has no idea how the fire originated. All the contents of the upper story were destnyed with the house; the lower story furnish ings were saved. The loss will reach $1,200 with no insurance. Program Of the W. F. M. S. of the M.

Kdatney and Carson were called at oneei-,-Ed Gooey, the man who was sh'dtv'had gone to Mr. Sloan's fqr some potatoes. They had looked f$p iiim&in' the afternoon, but as it v, aboiitTT "o'clock "they had given him lip. It is certainly an unfortunate affair. Later Mr. Gooey is doing nicely.
