NEARLY A SERIOUS ACCIDENT
While County Commissioner George Welch was driving home last night from the city and had reached a point several miles from town, his little daughter Margaret, who was with him, a little miss six years of age, lost her balance in leaning forward and fell out of the wagon, striking one of the front wheels and falling to the ground, the horses travelling rapidly and it was impossible to stop them before both wheels had passed over the little girl. One wheel passed over her thigh and another over her body. Mr. Welch brought her back to town immediately and summoned a doctor, who found that her injuries were nothing worse than some painful bruises.
