Young Lad Suffers Accident

Master Raymond BROWNRIGG son of Rev. M. BROWNRIGG received a gash on his forehead Monday which bled very profusely and caused some alarm at first. The children were playing at the well and Raymond's sister jerked the pump handle up quickly striking the lad between the eyes and cutting a gash from which the blood spouted in streams, filling his eyes and running all over his shirt. Rev. BROWNRIGG quickly washed it off under the pump to ascertain the damage done and he also became rather gory. The cut was small but it had struck an artery.
