on Tuesday the local physicians per-
formed an operation on the boy at
the Hondo Hospital with the hope
of saving his leg. During the Christ-
mas holidays “Toddy” was preparing
for a hunt and, in trying to mount
his horse, his gun, which he had lean-
ed up against the fence, went off
and shot him in the knee. For a
time it seemed that he was not so
seriously injured, but the latter part
of last week he grew very much
worse and, expressing a desire to
come to Hondo for treatment! he
was brought here with the above re-
sult. He is somewhat improved as
we go to press. Miss Lorine return-
ed to her school at Sinton Sunday.
