It has just come to our notice that Oscar Sternitzky, while speeding along the highway between Lynn and Sherwood at the rate of sixty miles an hour one of those beautiful days early this month, experienced the explosion of a wheel beneath him and a speedy collapse from locomotion.  Oscar was too much shaken up to distinctly remember how he traversed the space intervening between the scene of the accident and Pray Mitchell’s in Sherwood, but her managed somehow and his first recollection of something doing was awakening and finding himself at Pray’s with Miss Blanche played the good Samaritan and laving his wounds.  He was obliged to accept the hospitality offered him there and remain overnight, least ways he did, and Freddy took him home the next day.
