A ..Painful Accident
A very painful accident happened
to the little five' year old grand-
daughter Dixie of " Uncle Tom" Fos-
ter last . Thursday evening; "Facie
Tom" was using a mower In cutting
some of his forage crop and It seems
that little Dixie and a littledaughter
of Mrs. Graves were following along
behind their grandfather as child ren
sometimes do. Uncle Tom sighted a
small rabbit bedded . ia the ground
Just ahead of the mower and stop-
ped his mutes for the purpose of cap-
turing tie' prize for the little girls.
He succeeded in securing the coveted
prize and held It out in his hand for
the little one. Little Dixie in the
desire to fondle the young pet lirst
stepped In front of the cycle and
reached out ahead of . her young
friend and just as she did so the
treacherous cycle from some tin
known cause made a short stroke
and caught little Dixie Just below
the ankle cutting through the flesh
and penetrated for some depth -into
Ce bone. Loving hands carried the
little wounded child to the house
and' physicians were Immediately
munitioned. After an examination
the wound was pronounced li pain-
ful though not necessarily ' a serious
injury. ' '
"Uncle Tom" Is grief stricken over
the accident as lie says it is the first
he has had In his life that resulted so
disastrously though he was iu no
wise responsible for this one. '
An election has been ordered
and will be held at the school
house on the 27th to determine
whether or not $(iU00 I per cent

Thresher to work and wish to thresh

10 cents per bushel horse feed Includ-
ed but I propose to thresh for the
season at 10 cents per bushel for
wheat and Scents per bushel for oats.

New Kind of Life Insurance.
For twenty-tive cents you can
insure yourself and family
against any serious results from
an attack of bowel complaint
during tiie summer months.
That is the price of a bottle of
Chamberlain's Colic Cholera
and Diarrhoea Remedy a medi-
cine that can always be depend-
ed upon even in the most severe
and dangerous cases. It is
equally valuable for children
and adults. When reduced
with water and sweetened it is
pleasant to take. This remedy
has relieved more pain and suf-
fering and saved the lives of
more people than any other
medicine in the world. It is al-
most sure to be needed befoie
the summer is over. Buy it now.
