Some time ago Mr. S. E. Coover, while working in the Brindle mine, drove the point of a pick through his right hand. When it was nearly healed he went back to work. He caught cold in the injured member, and now he is confined to his bed, with the hand swelled to double its natural size. Mrs. Coover and the children are also sick.
