The Comanche Chief, Comanche, Texas, 14 August 1880

A Serious Accident

Last Thursday, a little son of Mr. W.M. STEWART, while playing in the upper story of the college, fell through a hole in the floor to the lower story. The fall was fifteen feet and the little fellow was badly bruised but, fortunately, no bones were broken.

Fine Specimens

Bill CARROLL can "beet" any man in the county. He brought one, raised on his place in town, to our office yesterday which weighed seven pounds, and he says that was not his largest.

Mr. WEST, the champion gardener of the west, brought in some of his excellent tomatos and a new variety of musk melon which is very fine.

Mr. M.Y. ALLEN favored us with a few specimen bolls of his fine cotton. He says his cotton is as fine as any in the county and there is not a worm in it.
