One of his legs was broken and his back was injured. The man is unable to get out of his bed and is under the care of Dr. C.A. Horton.

Bad day in the woods

The Warren County Democratic Convention has been called for Oct. 2, 1911 at the Warren House in Warrensburgh for the purpose of nominating a candidate for member of the state Assembly and Superintendent of the Poor and Coroner. Democratic delegates from the “Queen Village” of Warrensburgh are Thomas J. Smith, Carl Brown, George Washington Farrar, Robert Cunningham and A.T. Crandall. Delegates from Thurman are Thomas G.
