MOON EXHONERATED FROM MANSLAUGHTER .Men Moon Faces Jury on Charge of Manslaughter Exhonorated From Blame Alen Moon, son of Mr. and Mra. W. G. Moon, was exhonorated from a charge of manslaughter which he faced in a Detroit court last week. The jury was only out about ten minutes and when they returned the verdict was "Not Guilty." Mr. Moon runs an auto taxi cab in Detroit, and while driving on his route a few nights ago, a woman by the name of Mrs. Helen Miller, 53 years old, stepped from behind a large electric light pole, directly in the path of his machine and just in time for the bumper to hit her and knock her several feet, rendering her unconscious. Mr. Moon stopped his machine and hurried to the woman using his utmost endeavor to get her into his machine. Finding that it would consume too much time, he put in a call for an ambulance which took her to an emergency hospital where she died, never regaining consciousness. Mr. Moon was in no way to blame for the tragedy and the verdict of the jury was in accordance with the evidence in the case. YOUNG JUMPER LAD RECOVERING FROM INJURIES. Donald Jumper, son of Mr. and Mrs. Frank Jumper and grandson of Mr. and Mrs. Frank White, who was so painfully injured a short time ago when he fell from a wagon on West Washington street, had the bandage taken from his head and the stitches taken but Monday. It was found that the scalp is bare and it will probably be some time before it grows over. In case it does not, skin will have to be grafted upon the wound. Otherwise the little fellow is getting along fine, although it is thought he will not get to attend school again this term. MRS. NOLDER ENTERTAINED SUNDAY SCHOOL CLASS.
