The 6-year-old son of E. F. Whipple of Eckelson
had a narrow escape from instant death Wednesday while playing about the cars at the station. He got in between the cars and as they came together his head was caught between the bumpers
. One eye was injured and the bones of one side of the head bulged out somewhat but owing to the elasticity of the youthful bone formation he escaped with his life.
