A. A. COOPER INJURED
Pioneer Wagon Manufacturer Receives
Bad Cut in a Fall Monday.
A. A. Cooper while driving across the railroad tracks at First Street, late Monday afternoon was thrown from his buggy when the horse shied. He was thrown violently to the railroad tracks and received several scalp wounds from which the blood flowed quite freely.
Mr. Cooper was quickly on his feet, with the assistance of section men who were at hand, and regardless of his age, being almost 84 years old, insisted on taking care of himself. When taken home his wounds were dressed and it was found that he had sustained a severely bruised shoulder.
Monday evening it was believed that nothing serious would result as the patient had been in exceptionally good health and his sturdy for one of his age.
