Friday aud Saturday beat the
record for local accidents of a more
or less serious nature, resulting ia
painful harts to the persons in
rolved. The must serious one was
very bad, iudecd a boy's arm was
tor" to shreds iu a gin, ueenstitat
itn Friday Mr. Frank lYesley,
who lives above town, came to
Shute's Bear Skin gin with cotton.
His sou, Hanan, bftecn years of
age, accuiupanied him. As the gius
were ruuniug, the boy, passing one
of them, reached out his hand to
press down the cotton. The baud
was caught and jerked iuto the
saws. The poor lad's cries brought
help aud the niachiue wasstopml.
Dr. Blair was 'phoned for and
haste ued to the giu, reaching there
before tbe men bad succeeded in
getting the arm out But for the
timely arrival of the doctor the boy
might have bled to death, but the
arm was corded so as to stop the
loss of blood. So soon aa arrange
ments could be msde, Dr. Blair,
with Drs. Stevens aud Monroe, cut
off the arm near the shoulder.
The teu year old son of Sir. John
Jerome of ingate fell from a

road near Waxhaw was hurt Fri
day. A piece of steel splintered
from the hammer which be was
using and embedded itself iu his
thigh. Both of these cases were

On Sunday as Sliss Aline Fletcher
was coming down the stairstep at

cut ou the arm, aud she was also
pretty liadly bruised.
While Mr. Vemc Austin was
crossing a foot-log, down ou tils
father s farm in liuford township
Friday, his foot alipiied and he fell
across the log, striking on his ri'!it
side. While lie was not hurt more
thau a slight jar, the seriousness of
the mishap will at once become ap
parent when it is recollected that
he lately underwent an oieration
for appendicitis, in which his life
bung in the balance for days, aud
he has not yet fully recovered his
strength from the effects of it.
