A Serious Accident. Mrs. James K Itamsay, of this city, .met with a very serious accident, Wednesday of this week, June in, whereby she came near losing her left hand. Sim was washing and was as aisled by the use of a gasoline entflne. In running some clothes through the wringer, her left hand was caught and pulled through the rolls, nearly to the wrist, crushing and bruising the llesh and liones of the hand, very seriously, between the lingers and wrist. Dr. J. L Ilogan was called, who rendered the surgical aid needed, bandaged up the hand, and she is now getting along as well as cou'd be expected, but It will be some time before she will have the free use of this hand again. 85.

Despite the fact that tin recent heavy rains and high water have Hood. d much corn land there Is still time for Missouri farmeis to grow a crop, according to I.

Incubator House Burned. Wlial might have been much more serious than It was, was the burning of the chicken Incubator house, close to the residence of J. W. 1'atterson, residing l:' miles northeast of Oregor, Saturday evening, June U, 1U15, be tween 10 and II o'clock. The house contained seven 4no-egg capacity In cubators, and three of them were In operation. As the family was away from home, It is not known exactly how tlie lire started, but It is sup posed one of tlie lamps became too high, began to smoke, formed a gas, w lilch exploded, causing tlie tire. As Mr. Patterson has roanv tenants, the lire was discovered In time to save the residence, which waa only a. few feel from the Incubator house. Mr. Pat terson and family arrived home, but the lire was under control when they came. The loss amounts to $500, which Is partly covered by Insurance. The largest loss, of course, wan the prospective hatch, which Is hard to estimate. One of the Old Ones. While In Mound City, Saturday last, It was a great pleasure to us to meet our old-time friend, Charley S. Armstrong, and while quite- feeble, physically, we were glad to Hnd his mental faculties still active and strong. He came to Holt county In 1810, and served as our county sur veyor In 1IKM-5. He waa born In Greene county, Pennsylvania, the last day of December, which waa the last day of the year, and New Year's Eve, In the year 1834, and Is therefore In the Slat year of his age. In 1870, he married Lucy Jackson, and these two dear old people are still Journeying together, nicely situated, and pa tiently awaiting the setting of tlie sun. Charley waa In Iowa when the Civil war broke out, and he donned the blue, as a member or the 39th lows Infantry, followed the old flag through many of the great battles, snd was mustered out as s lieutenant.
