Yesterday afternoon Victor ixn
and Robert Black were doing ome
grading and while endeavoring to fill a
scraper, Victor slipped and injured hw
arm in such a way that it was thought
it had been broken. A physician was

could find no fracture, although hs pro

Hard Times for Papers.
The price of print paper is constantly
advancing and printing material of a!l
kinds is from 10 to 35 per cent higher
than it was three or four years ago, and
yet many o 'tho "newspaper of the,
country are oiling their prodwU kt the
priowi that they obtained ft few years
aitv.- The result they are losing
money and losing i fast. The question
is liow long cVV they continue to do so.
One thing i tertain, there must be a
readjustment or there will be fewer
K Is absolutely impossible to publish
fctt'average weekly newspaper for Vesa
than $1.50 per year and receive Wy
profit, and many publisher's tfctVfcea'te

few years ago when papr w&s cheap
and material of all kinds couVd be bought
at a low figure the subscription price of
newspapers all over th fend was gen
erally reduced to $1.25 'and even $1 ier
year, and the prtcv has continued at
these profitless figures in a majority of

on their hands, one hired by the old
board, ttnd the other by the new board,
fcomi years since a sftniliar case came

The new board, when Shinn went to

taught the term and drew her pay as

term of Judge SpurW-k, and of course
was decided by that Vegal light.
