Meelt With Accident,
Mis3 Mildred Rogers, the young
daughter of Mrs. J. W. Parkin, met
with an accident Tuesday which while
not at all Berious was very painful and
will result in the young lady taking a
vacation for a few days. While swing
ing from the limb of a tree at tho resi
dence of J. M. Roberts on West Main
street, she felt that it was about to
break and loosed her hold. The dis
tance to the ground was short but from
the nature of the injury her physician
thinks that perhaps the knee cap was
dislocated. While tho ligaments are
still very Bore, the inflammation is
rapidly subsiding and the little lady
will doubtless soon be her usual self.
Muslo and Elocution.
Prof. II. S. Austin has resigned his
position with Dovey & Son, and on the
18th inst. with his wife will open in the
Gund building, at the corner of Fourth
and Main streets, a studio for instruct
ion in music and elocution.
Prof. Austin's reputation as a teach
er of music is too well known in this
city and vicinity that we need dwell
upon it at this time. Suffice it to say
that the increasing demands upon his
time makes this move necessary, and
assisted by his wife who is one of the
best elocutionists in this section of the
country, the new venture will doubtless
fill a long felt need. In addition to
vocal work Prof. Austin will also open
classes in harmony and composition.
Mrs. Curtis Moore, who have ben
quite sick, is reported to be improving
now, but slowly.
