Fatal Accident
To Small Boy
      Arthur Jenkins, little son of Mr.
and Mrs. Arthur Jenkins, who liv-
ed on the farm of Mr. Stanton
Glaize near Meadow Mills, met with
a fatal accident a few days ago. The
boy was riding the off mule attach-
ed to a wagon and team belonging
to Messrs. Stickley & Orndorff, when
he either fell or slipped off, and one
of the wheels of the wagon, loaded
with a cord and a half of wood, pass-
ed over his abdomen. The wagon
was going down hill at the time.
      With the Jenkins boy at the time
was his brother, Willie. The in-
jured lad, though in great pain,
walked to his home nearby. Dr.
Weaver was immediately summoned
from Middletown, and an examina-
tion showed him that there was no
hope for the little sufferer. He pass-
ed away at 2 o'clock in the morning.
      He was a bright boy and the sec-
ond child, and was about 6 years
old.
