The parents of the dead child,
Mr. and Mrs. T. Ray Jasper of
Plano, and the driver of the car,
Taylor Jackson ol Renner, were
painfully bruised. They were
coming toward Waco when they
met two men in a buggy going in
the opposite direction, who were
leading another horse and buggy.
Mr. Jackson turned out for the
first horse, but failed to see the
second one until he was within a
short distance of it. To avoid
striking the horse he made a
sharp turn. The front spring
broke and the car turned turtle
several times, throwing the oc-
cupants out. The baby’s skull
was fractured and death resulted

three months more he took on
added weight. Then he tried

just graduating or from former
