The father of the boy informs us that the arm was not amputated at all -- that the machine took the arm almost square off. The young man is doing as well as could be expected.

Hurt By Fall From Buggy.  Mrs. Clark Latham who lives south of Gordon, was badly hurt Saturday afternoon.  In company with her husband and daughter, Mrs. Latham was driving along East Main street when her horse became frightened at an automobile, and wheeled suddenly around, throwing Mrs. Latham against the curbing.  No blame is attached to the driver of the automobile, as there probably would have been no serious accident had not the end of the buggy seat broken off.  Mrs. Latham received a bad cut on the right side of the head, which caused slight concussion of the brain, leaving her unconscious all afternoon and night.  She was taken to the home of Dr. Carlisle, where she remained until Sunday morning, when she was taken to her home.  [Robinson Constitution (Robinson, IL) 25 MAY 1910]
