In our write-up of the automobile
accident, in which there appears an
inference that the driver was drunk.
The auto is owned by John Urlsh,
and his son Henry was the driver.
We are sorry they put this infer
ence upon the article, because the
young man never drank a drop of
liquor in his life. The Journal is
always willing to correct errors that
creep into its columns, and in jus
tice to Mr. Urlsh and the young man
we are glad to make this correc
tion. Bystanders say that the auto
was not going at the rate that was
reported, and was going at a rate of
only about four miles an hour, or
Our old friend, J. II. Tarns, left
at this office today a quantity of the

varieties, and they are all very solid
