FRED WYNN GOMES
NEAR MEETING WITH A
VERY SERIOUS ACCIDENT
Quite a peculiar accident be
fell Fred AVynn yesterday, and
one that he will remember for a
lime at least. , lie was at the
home of Maldou Brown, and in
response to a request, was in the
space between the roof and the
ceiling oi me room Deiow exam
ining the electric wiring", walking
carefully along on the joyee sup
porting the ceiling, and in doing
so his foot slipped and the next
thins the parties in the room
knew was the appearance of the
lower limbs of Fred through the
ceiling, bavins in the fall broken
throush the ceiling, but without
doins much damage except to
himself, as he found it necessary
to use about I.8 worth of
plaster to do up the injuries re
ceived. The room below received
a larse amount of plaster, and in
the future when Fred engages in
this kind of service for hi
friends he will insist on beinj
protected asainst loss of life and
TION BARELY AVERTED
AT M. S. GRIGGS HOME
Hat came near hems a very
serious conflagration was barely
averted at the home of M. S
Mn'sss on Saturday afternoon,
and but for the prompt work of
the members of the family their
home would have suffered sreat-
ly from the tire loss. It seems
that Murdett Mrisss was ensased
m uiawins 'out trie (train pipe
lead ins from the bathroom to the
outsido of the house, usins a
blow torch for that purpose, and
in the operation the wood of the
wainscoatins in the room became
isnitcd and started to burn in a
very danserous manner and for a
few minutes it seemed doubtful
whether the fire could be put out
or not, but a liberal application
of water carried by the members
of the family soon subdued the
ansry flames and the loss will not
amount, to over $10, and Mr
Mriss and he family feel that
they have certainly sotten out of
it in good shape.
