ACCIDENT

A letter received from a nurse at one of the hospitals in Dodge City reports J.W. Huffman suffering with a broken leg. Johnny had one leg broken at Cedar ten years ago. Whether this is a fracture of the same member or not, the message did not state. Anyhow, it is a serious calamity.

WEATHER

Last Friday morning we received a card from W.H. Ransom, who had started for Colorado in his car Thursday morning, stating that it took him six hours to get as far as Logan. He found the roads from here to Kirwin in a very bad condition, owing to the heavy rain the night previous. A severe hail storm had swept the country between Cedar and Harlan, almost completely destroying all crops in its path.
