Market street corner. The child in compan}' with some other children was playing on the sidewalk close to the street. The injured boy ran onto the street being chased by his little playmate, the chase terminating in front of the auto which neither of the children saw. Fortunately the machine was merely drifting down the hill, so that the injuries the lad received will not prove serious. He was badiy cut above the knee on the left leg, his right leg was also badly bruised. He also has sustained bad injuries about the groin. It is thought by the physicians that nothing serious will develop. • The car passed over the body of the child, two wheels crossing his body before the driver could stop it.
