Guk, the East Lynn surgeon, when an accident befell one of the ball players Sunday that required medical attention. With the aid of the above mentioned article, a shoe-maker’s awl, one ball of binder twine, seven stitches were required to bring the patient back to a normal condition, but at present writing he is well on the road to recovery.

Born to Mr. and Mrs. Fred Lichte a son last week. Mother and little one are reported as doing well. Fred also passed through the ordeal with flying colors and a smile. Cigars, please.

A number of neighbors helped Louis Sternitzky celebrate his birthday Saturday evening. All enjoyed a good time.
