Accidentally hit by automobile

   On Friday evening of last week occurred a frightful accident when fifteen year old Alice Riggs, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. O. A. Riggs of this city, was run over by an auto driven by J.W. Warren. Mr. Hamilton was the only other occupant of the car at the time.

   The accident occurred between six and six-thirty and we have not been able to ascertain definitely as to whether or not the lights were on.

   The auto came down Main Street going south and the accident occurred just as the auto rounded the corner going east on Montana Avenue, at a speed of between five and six miles an hour.

    The girl was knocked unconscious and Mr. Warren stopped the car, picked her up and took her at once to the Elizabeth Hospital, while Mr. Hamilton called the doctor.

   Both Doctors Young and Hayes have been in attendance since. They report that she is doing fairly well at present. She wakes up occasionally and asks for food and her complete recovery is expected.

Pick and choice of 3 records

   The Baker Drug Co., composed of Messrs. Russell and Henton, have donated six Victrola records to the Baker city school. These records are to be selected from any on the complete list of Victor records whether in stock or not. These selections are to be made by the several teachers of the different grades and by Miss Henton for the high school. These records are used with the beautiful new Victrola, which was purchased largely through Miss Bachtle’s earnest efforts last year.

Dance a success

   The dance given last Friday night at the Masonic hall by the high school basketball team was a pleasing success.

   Music was furnished by the Baker four piece orchestra, and sixty to seventy couples were in attendance.

  About thirty-five dollars was cleared. This goes to the high school athletic association.
