Kicked by a Horse
Mr. Fred Clugcy, living west of this
city, was kicked In the face by a horse
last Sunday. The hoof of the animal
struck him just above the right eye,
mulcting a gash that required eight
stitches to close. Dr. ('inninl ns nt-

which time lie has been getting along
as nicely as could be expected.
