LaGrange News — Little Pearl JONES was gored by Reubin ATMORE’s ox on Tuesday but not seriously hurt. Intervention in time saved her possibly from death.
And then, in the very same issue is this notice — Mrs. H.D. STANLY was gored by a cow yesterday. Dr. HYATT attended her. She was not seriously injured.
