On Tuesday afternoon the 7-year-old son of Mr. and Mrs. Richard Highland while playing near the mill in picking a sandbur from one of his fingers with his teeth by some means swallowed it, or rather got it started down his throat where it stuck fast.

The little fellow suffered intensely while the operation was being performed but at last accounts was getting along very well – Covington Friend
