A Narrow Escape.
David Cain , infant son of Mr.
and Mrs. J. R. Cain , had a nar.
row escape from death last Sun
day. The little fellow , who is
i little more than a year old ,
was playing in a room in the
second story of the Cain resi
dence when in some manner he
unhooked the screen and fell
out the window. The distance
is about twenty leet and under
ordinary circumstances the fall
might have proved fatal , but it
was the young man's lucky day
and aside from a few minor
bruises and a bad shaking up he
suffered no injury.
Some of the bridge material
purchased by McCray for the
DuBois bridge upon which he
was to make such a saving is
now in the court house yard for
inspection. The supervisors
who have been so cruelly as
saulted by McCray's newspaper
for refusing to stand for Bill's
bridge building have had this
metal brought in. It is old ,
rotten and rusty and has been
used in other structures many
years before William bought it
