New Improvement in Offices.

The county treasurer-'s and county
clerk's offices in the court house have
just received what they have long
needed, that is a typewriter desk
where the work of the clerks can be
carried on faster and better than un
der the old conditions that prevailed
for the past few years, when the in
creasing amount of business in these
ofTices has made the work of the type
writers much heavier and it has been
no easy job to run the machine and
at the same time handle the large
record books used in the office.

Harry Wales, the young son of Mr.
and Mrs. Joe Wales, met with a very
painful accident yesterday afternoon
while engaged in playing foot ball
that will lay him up for some time
to await the healing up of his right
forearm that was broken in two
places. The little lad was thrown to
the ground and fell in such a manner
as to hurt his arm, although it was
not thought at first that it was
broken, and it was not until the arm
was examined that it was discovered
to have been injured so severely. The
injury was dressed and the little man
will be compelled to abandon foot ball
for a time.
