At Capt. Dick Hargis’ home at Cass Station, there is a new made citizen who should bear the name of “Grover Adlai Hargis,” and we doubt not from what Capt. Dick says, his lungs are intact and he could make a thorough democratic campaigner already. Success to Grover Adlai.


Mrs. Vivion’s Injuries.

We take the following in regard to Mrs. Vivion’s injuries from the Lebanon, Ky., Enterprise of July 22d:

Mrs. James H. Vivion, of Cartersville, Ga., met with a serious accident on the morning of the 1st of July in leaving a vestibuled train on the Cincinnati Southern at Junction City. Mrs. Vivion was en route from her home in Georgia to visit her mother, Mrs. M. J. Marshall, in this city, and had to change cars at Junction City, to reach Lebanon, the C. S. train at that point connecting with the L. and N. After the train on the C. S. had reached a perfect standstill, Mrs. Vivion left her seat to alight from the train, but before she could reach the door of egress the train gave a sudden and violent lurch, throwing her from her feet and upon her left side, she sustaining thereby bruises of a dangerous character. Mrs. Vivion had to be carried from the train by strangers to the Tribble Hotel, and then had to be carried to the train on the L. and N. road. Since her arrival here she has been, and is now, upon crutches. Her condition is somewhat improved. The recklessness of employees of railroads contribute very largely to the general antipathy against them and they should be taught that a little carefulness and politeness from themselves to their passengers is an essential duty.
