others were caught under the wreck
age of the auto. Mrs. Gladys Rioh
ardson and Miss Caroline Lahoda.
and Kenneth McCarthy. were all
pinioned under the ear an! were
bruised considerable. That they
v. t re not injured much worte than
they were is due to the fact lhat
they were going at a very moderate
rale of speed, traveling about 20
miles an hour. Also that in the turn
ing over, they were cought in the
friendly "meshes of a wire fence,
thus allowing the car to fall with
less force when it turned over.
Many f the party are carrying
some sore spots yet. and judging
from the di-coloratioiis the impact
at the time tif the accident was
severe enough to suit the most fastidious.

ARRIVES HOKE FR0!-I FRANCE.
From Wednesday's Pally.
This morning C. L. Pitman ar
rived home from overseas, having
been in France for some nine
months. Mr. Pitman was a mem
ber of Engineers corps of the navy
aviation and went to France in
August of last year, and returned
arriving at Newport News. Va., on
May 2tth. and was discharged from
the Great Lakes on Monday last.
While in France Mr. Pitman, was
engaged in larpenter work, and
wa.s located most of the time in
southwestern France at a town
named Pauliac. Of the southern
portion of the country he has not
the best opinion as he says the
people have very little energy, and
are contented with raising a little
grape vineyard, from which they
derive enough to keep them eating
a portion of the time. Other por
tions of the country he speaks well
of and thinks Paris a great place,
and is all the country northeast of
there, where the battle was raging.
Heaid he was content to remain in
the country while there was some
thing to do. during the war but
aftei the armist ice was signed he
was very anxious to get home again.
He was in charge of a crow of
carpenters who -were reconstructing
the devastated places and building
barracks for the citizens to live in.
