Men Two most remarkable recover- ies from what seemed certain death have astonished all famil- iar with the details of two ac- cidents which occurred within a mile of each other near Mico in this county. Webb Low, a young white man, the son of a well known farmer was running his horse, which left the public road and dashed through the woods. A tree knocked young Lowe from his horse and he fell on his head, breaking the spinal ver- tebra where the neck joins. The young man was picked up for dead and carried home where sign of life developed. A physi- cian was summonsed who remov- ed seveal pieces of uroken bones of the spine, For several months he lay in bed paralyzed, at the point of death, when he began to recover, and today can locomoto almost as well aa any one else although he carries around a broken neck. Two months ago a young far- mer, Bowen Hernngton, was going home from town riding a mule. En route he encountered a storm which blew an oak tree two feet in diameter across the man and mule instantly killing the mule and it was thought at the time fatally wounding the young man. Some time after the accident he was discovered and dug from under the tree. It was found that several of his ribs were torn loose from his spine and that he had been fearfully injured besides, his spine being badly injnred. Several hours after the hurt a physican was summoned, who thinking that Herrington was mortally hurt dressed him up the best he could; and gave him something to ease him so that he could die without much pain. On going back next morning expecting to find him dead, it was discovered that his people had come in a wagon1 and removed him to his home several miles away. Today the young man is on the high road to recovery and but for some severe burns on his feet, which were made by his folks trying to warm them after the accident, and which he did not feel, he would be able to pursue his daily vocation. The machine shops formerly operated by the Kingston Lum- ber Company have been sold to the'Laurel Machine and Foundry Co. This new concern will do most of the work formerly done by the Kingston Lumber Co. The Laurel Machine and Found- dry Co. is running night and day and turning out a large amount of work. Mr. and Mrs. G. M. Smith, for some time residents of Louin, have moved to Laurel. Mr. Smith has accepted a position in the Mississippi Drug Store.
