In a letter to his father, Frank
Campbell of this city, Clarence Camp
bell, of Seattle, Washington, an
nounces that the doctors have just re
moved the casts from his legs and
that he is slowly regaining strength.
Clarence, it will be remembered by
Frontier readers, was run over by an.
auto early in June and suffered two
broken legs and two broken riba be
sides other internal injuries. Mrs.
Campbell has been steadily employed
by the company, for which Clarence
was working, since the accident.
Clarence perhaps owes considerable
credit for his recovery to the fact that
a national doctors convention was in
session in Seattle at the time of the
accident and many of the most promi
nent physicians of the United States
assisted in the examination and ad
justment of his injuries, among the
number was the president of Rush
Medical College, of Chicago. Clar
ence says that he has received calls
from a number of old time friends
since the accident among the more re
cent callers was Ed. S. Eves.
