The 12-year-old son of Andrew Peterson, who resides about a mile and a half from Ojata, is in a serious condition as a result of an accident. The boy started out to hunt wolves on horseback. When some distance from the house, the horse slipped and fell down, crushing one of the boy's legs badly and breaking the bones. The horse ran home after the accident and for several hours members of the family searched for the boy before he was found. He was badly exhausted from exposure and the loss of blood, but it is believed the boy will recover.
