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. iv".. -v. . . .1 r v m'M-j:-.
