The Little Son of A. M. Eaton Seri- ously Injured. Marion, the five-year-old son of Mr. and Mrs. A. M. Eaton, met with a frightful accident about 11 o'clock this It is miraculous that the little child was no' instantly killed. Marion, in company with a number of other boys, was playing around the barn in the rear of Mr. Eaton's resi- dence on First street. Something in- cited the little fellow to play that he was conducting a livery stable. Going into the building he proceeded to feed a horse which was tied therein. The animal would not eat, so the lad concluded that lie would compel him to devour the food. He procured a email stick and commenced to poke the horse in the hind legs. The horse began to kick. It hit the child a terrific blow in the face, knock- ing out several teeth, fracturing the collar bone and cutting a big gaeh across the chin. Chas. Gammill, who was at work in the barn painting a buggy, ran to the child's assistance and the poor little siriTerer was taken into the house. A physician was immediately sum- moned and dressed the wounds, which are not necessarily tatal, but of a very serious nature.
