Accident to James Smith.
James Smith, a well known citizen who resides on west Second street, met
with a very painful and almost serious accident yesterday. He was driving a
team of horses hitched to a log wagon, and coming down a steep hill south of
town, one of the animals swerved and started into the ditch. Mr. Smith
became tangled in the lines and managed to jump from the wagon, and in doing
so, fell with great force, dislocated one of his shoulders. He was also hurt
internally. The injured man was brought to the office of Dr. J. P. Tourner,
where his wounds were attended to. He will be kept at home for some time on
account of the accident.
