"Among those present" were Hugh Duffy, now scouting for the Sox; Chic Fraser, Pirate ivory hunter; Eddie Smith, who is training his lamps on Three-I stars in the Interest of a couple of big- ring clubs and Joe Rade- Sullivan, July 6.--Edward Butler, son of Dr. S. T. Butler and wife, met with a pa'nfui accident Saturday eve- | ring at Piter's park, when he left leg was lacerated while sliding down a chute into the lake. Butler and other boys were sliding down the chute on their stomachs with Butler in the hiad, and the other two boye holding ! on. when Butler struck his left leg on a piece of wood projecting along the side of the chute. It tore a hole In his leg over two Inches wide and eight or ten inches long and as deep a s the muscles of the leg. The muscle was also lacerated. After striking this projecting part of the chute which was a part of the support, he went Into about eight feet of water, but by the time hts brother. Charles, and Harold Day got to him he was at the bank. Pulling him out of the water, they rushed him to a tent and took off his bathing suit and wrapped a sheet around him. Dr. Scarborough who happened to. be at the park, came to their assist- j ance and they put him in a car and I rushed him to the doctor's office, where the wound was dressed, Dr. J. F. Li,wson assisting. Butler was later taken to his home on a cot. Twenty- eight stitches had to be taken in the wound. The accident happened about S o'clock in the evening and they had him her« in the city about 5:30. Edward and his twin brother, Donald, had been at the park all day playlnK tennis and in other sports which took place at the park, and were finishing their day's sport by taking a swim. P1FER BLAMED. The accident nearly broke up the crowd for the day, as a number oC people went home at once. Mr. Pifer. owner of the park, is blamed for the accident on account of leaving the brace projecting along the slt3e of the chute, so that It was dangerous to persona sliding down into the water. A boy from A r t h u r who was sliding down earlier in the day tore his bathing suit off on this same projecting part and was afraid to try it any more. Butler did not rest extra well Saturday night and Sunday morning the | attending physician administered an- tl-toxlne as a preventative from blood poisoning setting in. He did not rest well again Sunday night but Monday morning his fever had gone down.
