A Narrow Escape
H. C. Larson, of Centerville, who was here the latter part of last week, met with what may be termed a lucky accident. He was in his car on his way out to his daughter's, Mrs. Arthur Hartmann, Thursday evening, accompanied by his sister-in-law, Mrs. E. M. Smith, when he attempted to pass around a team ahead of him, in front of the Methodist church. The grade was narrower than he had figured and his car "turned turtle" and pinned him under the car, but fortunately, he was thrown in such a way as to light where the body of the auto is carved out. He and Mrs. Smith received minor bruises and the wind shield was broken and some part of the steering wheel was broken, but the damage was not great enough to prevent him from going on out to his daughter's.
John Williams and Charles Logan, whose home is south of LeMars, Iowa, visited Thursday and Friday of last week with John Greeno and family of Bates township. Mr Williams has a quarter-section of land in Bates township and another in Hiland township. Of course he was combining business with pleasure--looking after the past season's crops and the leasing of his land for next year, also projecting further improvements on the same, while, renewing acquaintanceship with the Greenos, he and they, as well as Mr Logan, having been neighbors in Iowa.
Rev. O'Connor, the Free Methodist pastor of the shurch of that denomination in Bates township, has returned from the recent conference held in Vienna, this state. He leaves for Kennebec, beyond Chamberlain and west of the Missouri, as spiritual shepherd to another flock. Rev. Donoghue, of Wessington Springs, former presiding elder of this district, replaces Rev. O'Connor for the present.
The regular late-year smallpox alarm is again in the land, but the writer doesn't know how much truth there happens to be in the superabundance of rumors afloat. One thing is sure tho; some many in south-east Bates and the near neighborhood of Buffalo and Beadle counties have contracted the ailment that the school taught by Mr Woodruff has closed for at least a week or so.
