An auto mishap occurred at t!ie
intersection of Main and Fourth

driven by H. f-.. iar;hold knocked
J. M. Your.g to the pavement and
passed over both his leg.
Teople were crossing the street
at this particular corner thick and
fast an3- as Mr. TJarthold came -up
Main street at a very moderate ra'e
of speed, he saw that he must either
hit Mr. Young or a lady with a lit
tle child, and while endeavoring to
avoid striking either, he turned as
much as he could in the little time
he had. besides honking his horn
and shouting, but as Mr. Young is
hard of hearing, the summons did
not reach him and his first present i
n T.t of danger was when it struck
him and knocked him to the pave
ment, passing over both his legs a
Careful scrutiny failed to reveal
any broken bones in hi legs and it
was indeed fortunate that the im
pact of the car when Jt struck him
did not injury his body.
Mr. Hart hold, who did all he pos
sibly could to stop the car and like
wise to avoid the accident, picked th
unfortunate man up and ascertained
th" extent of hie injuries. after
which he took him to l is home.
Arrivinr at home. Mr. Young was
a'ole to vvfik .round a bit. but it is
expected that he will be somewhat
sore as a result of the accident.

L. C. SHARP COMPANY PUTTING
OUT A BUTTER CUTTER
INITIAL GUTTER IS COMPLETED
MakinG- cf Others to Follow Lnme
diatelj' Fairmont Creamery
ar.d Armcurs Get Them.
From Tuesday's rnlTy.
The C. F. Miller Hydraulic Cutter
is the name of the machine which
the L. C. Sharp Manufacturing com
pany is now making. A represent a-
tie of the journal visited the ma
chine s hops yesterday, happening in
j".:t at the time of the completion of
arrangement for terting the initial
machine which has been made to
cut the butter into quarter pound
rakes. The butter is first placed in
a rectangular vessel, where it 1
harc!ered by refrigeration which is
20 degrees P'areniuit. or 12 dverees
below freezing point.
With ordinary cutting devices that
have been on the market heretofore,
the work co'.'Id not be done with tiu
butter r.t anywhere near that low a
temperature, but the Miller machine,
being of hydraulic design and usitM
the Cne-t steel wires, is capable of
working at even lower temperatures.
With the machines requiring the
product to be worked at hiner teni
peratiires, trouble has been experi
enced in having the wrapping ma
chines opera'e pn;pe:Jy. This ma
chine requires no particular tem
perature, other thcui that the butter
be kept btlow the freezing point,
which insures its being solid, and
in proper shape for handling and
packing, without being pushed o.:i
of shape or indented by the devic?s
which wrap and pack the product.
The L. C. Sharp company has th
exclusive right of manufacture oi
this machine and now has a con-
tr. ct for four tor the i'airmont
Creamery company and also two for
the Armour Packing company. Tho
Fairmont Crepmery, in writing to
Mr. Sharp about the machine, says:
"In repard to the Miller Hut tor
Cutters, our opinion of the one ve
have is. we think, pretty well ex
pressed by onr order for the three
additional machines for the balance
of our factories. The great improve
ment in method with this machine
is cutting with fine short wires. le.-
shrinkage in weights and handling
very much harder butter, as we have
cut butter successfully when the but
ter itself was below 20 decrees above
zero. We hope the three new ma
chines will be ready for us soon."
In addition to orders for these ma
chines, the Sharp company has or
ders for other machines which the
local plant is manufacturing, par
ticularly the one for lhr making of
ice cream cones. There, together
with the company's own products,
keep the workmen at the shops very
busv these days.

ATTRACTING SOME ATTENTION,
From Tuesday's Daily.
A couple of picture artists have
located with W. T. Wasscll. just
across the street from our window
and from the crowd which gathered
to see them work last, evening, we
thought they were a part of the
carnival. But instead they were just
ordinary human beings at work mak-
ing their livelihood. And how some
people like to watch a man work. Of
course some like to be watched and
some don't. It looks like these two
gentlemen are among those who do.
Good roads, good schools and churches, good stores
are the backbone of every prosperous community.
