A INegro Has A Accident at
One of the negroes employed
on the work train met with an
accident at Harrisburg today
(Thursday). A rail, used at a
switch, called a switch point,
accidentally fell on his great toe,
cutting the end off of it. The
negro was brought here and the
wound dressed temporarily until
he could get to Charlotte where
it will be taken off.
Have Commenced to Build the Bridge.
Workmen are now at wTork
down on Rocky River near the
Black 1 mill preparing to place
the new iron bridge across. This
is the place where the large
iron bridge was washed away by
the heavy rains. The old bridge
has been taken out of the river
and placed on the banks. The
new bridge will be considerably
higher than was the other, and
it is not probable th:J. the county
will ever have to meet an ex
pense account for a bridge at
that place soon.
