AUTO ACCIDENT. A badly smashed Ford touring car and a badly damaged Essex automo bile, and injuries that proved very painful to Miss 111a May Ogburn is the result of an automobile accident which occurred at the crossing of Middle and Church Streets Friday afternoon when the cars driven by Mr. William Webb and Mr. W. T. Person ran to gether. From information received by us Mr. Person was going down Church Street at a fairly good speed while Mr. "Webb was crossing Church Street driving the Ford, when Mr. Person's car struck Mr. Webb's car almost midway forcing it back against an electric light post. Miss Ogburn was a passenger in the Ford and Was painfully injured by falling glass from ; the windshield and shock. Her many friends will be glad to know that she is much improved. It was a most myraculous happening that there was no loss of life as'the accident was a dangerous one, and must have hap pened from the drivers of the cars not paying the proper attention to the traffic in front of them. h UtANKLINTON.
