HAS A CLOSE CALL
From Saturday's Ially
Last evening: Calamer Leosis,
laughter of Mr. and Mrs. Harry
Lesls of the Royal cafe, had a very
close call front a dangerous if not
fatal accidnet while she was run
ning acro38 Main street near Fifth.
"Kelly," as the little girl is known,
had started across the street and
without looking- and she came onto
the line of traffic very suddenly and
into the path of a small truck whose
driver could not see the child until
she was right on him and then the
little girl hesstated to stop or go
ahead and was struck apparently by
the bumper of the truck and knock
ed down but the driver of the truck
had been able to get his truck speed
down by this time and the blow was
not severe. Several bad bruises and
lacerations were sustained where the
child struck the paving but other
wise she was apparently not injured.
The accident was one In which the
driver of the truck was blameless.
