Tree Which Had Been Struck By
Lightning and Set Afire Falls
ou Two Jones Co. Citizens"
the falling of a tree which had. been
struck by lightning and set afire, seri
ously wounded Mr. Foy Jones and per
haps fatally injured I'x-Snenff , Lon
Taylor, both of Jones county, as they
were driving.along the road near Trun
ton, Monday evening, ex-Sheriff Taylor
was struck oq the head by the tree and
paralyzed. A telephone message from
Trenton yesterday afternoon stated that
there was little chance forhia recovery.
Mr, Jones received a number of cuts on
his face and body, but bone of these it
is thought are of a Berious nature. The
buggy in which the two gentlemen
were seated at the time of the accident
was totally demolished, and the horse
they were driving was also injured. ,.
. Meagre details could only be learned
in this city yesterday in-regards to the
accident,' but what couli be learned , it
seems that ex-Sheriff Tayler and Mr
Foy Jones were driving along the road
enroute to Trenton. Nsaring the tree
they saw it was badly burned and that
there was danger of it falling at an
time. Seeing a man near by' who war
engaged in cutting wood, they stopped
and advised him to cut the tree down in
order to avoid any danger of its falling
upon any one. ' ' . ,
While they were engaged in talking
to thia man the charred tree, suddenly
fell to the earth. Tha buggy contain
ing the two gentlemen who were injur
ed was directly in the path of the Ir,
and before they realiz d their danger i
had crashed down upon them. : Assist
ance was at once given the injured inl
and they were rarried to their homes
where medical attention was rendered
them. : V
This news comes as a shock to the
scores of friends of both these gentle
men. For sixteen years Mr. Taylor
was Sheriff of Jones county, ' later he
ergiged in the mercantile husiness and
also conducted a large arm. Mr. .lor.e.
is also" a prosperous farmc.r,,-f ! U)J
county, both were liked and respe ted
by all who knew them and it is earnest
ly hoped that loth men may have a
speedy and complete recovery. Mr
Jones is the eon of Mr. and Mrs. W.
C. Jones, of this city. n
