A Well Known Lady Is SerkTuiy Injured in a
St&tesvill e Landmark. June. 80t&.
Saturday afternoon about o
eon. John. Watts, were ? going from
Statesville to theirfcbme in Loray
community wen the mule they
were driving took fright at or near
the Tayloraville railroad crossing
in Bloomfield, and ran away.
Mrs. Watts and her son were
thrown from the buggy. The lat
ter was run over by the buggy but
was not hurt. Mrs. Watts-received
a severe gash on her fore
head, the flesh being cut to the
bone, and severe bruises on her
shoulder and side. It is probable
that a rib is fractured. She was
taken to the home of Mrs. A. E.
Heath, near the scene of the acoi
dent, and physicians summoned.
Sunday morning Mrs. Watts was
removed to the home of her nieces,
Misses Mattie and Sallie Thomas,
on north Center street, where she
now is. Her injuries are quite
painful and she has suffered
much, but it is hoped that she
will be up in a few days.
