The boy was leading a colt which b "'oliL '<d to J.

The symptoms of the fracture of a skull do not usually show up. however, until about twinty-four hour? after iho fr.icture has occurred, so 'here Is strong reason for believeing that the boy's Injury Is much more serious than at first thought. A letter received by an lola friend from C. K. Adams, former clerk of the district court, brings the news that Mr. Adams Is now in a hospital at Sioux City, la., awaiting an operation. He has been In Armour South.Dako­ ta, where he was taken ill and tie doctors said only a surgical operation could relieve him of gall stones So he. was removed to the St. Joseph hospital where quite cheerfully he is awaiting the operation, which his many Allen county friends will hope will pvve successful. ay/A t IV.y til.. ii .ti .1 I'r.-.-^s* \V ;:sii .i:glon.
