Don’t Play In Traffic

Claude, the seven year old son of Mr. and Mrs. C. S. Chambers, is reported as recovering nicely from severe injuries he sustained when struck by an automobile, driven by Mrs. Henry Schultz last Saturday afternoon. The accident occurred on Central Avenue, south of the Burlington tracks. The little fellow was going home with two other boys and he ran around a tractor that was standing in the street and did not see the car that was coming. Neither did the driver of the car see the boy until it was too late to stop. The lad was struck on the leg between the knee and hip, with the result that his leg was fractured. The impact evidently threw him forward and he was struck by one of the lights. The broken glass cut deeply into his chin, which was nearly severed from his face. He also sustained injuries which are also painful when his body lit in the sand and gravel.

The little fellow was given as much relief as possible at the hands of Dr. Taylor and reports from his bedside give the information that he is getting along nicely.
