Mrs. Charles Bogart, nee Toney, swallowed a bottle of laudanum Saturday night with the avowed intention of shuffling off this mortal coil and getting herself to that undiscovered country. Dr. Ensminger’s timely arrival, however, prevented Mrs. Bogart from discovering, and he soon had her emptied out. She and the amiable Charles were honeying each other around in an hour after the tragedy and one would have supposed that the young lady had intentions for a prolonged sojourn in this vale of tears.

COTTRELL, Estella (I think) - operation-- Source: Crawfordsville Review 12 Oct 1911 p 1
Mrs. Frank Cottrell of Wingate underwent an operation at Culver Union Hospital a few days ago. Mrs. Cottrell gave birth to a girl baby and it was found necessary to pursue the Caesarian method of delivery. The mother stood the operation well and both she and her baby are doing nicely. Dr. PJ Barcus performed the operation assisted by Dr. Allhands and Dr. Olin in the presence of several physicians and nurses. This is the third Caesarian operation performed by Dr. Barcus and because of its rarity is believed the local physician holds a record in that particular line of surgery.

Mrs. Floren Hulvey of near Darlington narrowly escaped death or serious injury Monday when a shotgun in the hands of her 10-year-old son exploded. The lad was in the kitchen of the home and his mother seated at a table in an adjoining room. Finding a loaded shotgun behind the kitchen door the child laid it across his knees and pulled the trigger. A number of the shot from the heavily loaded gun passed into the thigh of Mrs. Hulvey. A physician succeeded in picking most of the shot and after dressing the wound stated the injury would not prove serious. Mrs. Hulvey is reported as faring nicely but the little child has not recovered from the fright he experienced when the gun exploded and his mother was injured. A report received from the Hulvey home stated the lad was unable to speak yet, so badly had he been frightened.

TILNEY - leg amputated -- Source: Crawfordsville Daily Journal Wednesday, 30 March 1892
This morning Dr. Henry Long, of Indianapolis, Dr. W. F. Curryer, of Thorntown, and Dr. J. T. Marsh, of Brownsburg, all of the Eclectic College of Physicians, arrived in the city to amputate the leg of Arthur Centennial Tilney, the son of Dr. DeCaux Tilney. The operation was eminently successful and the leg was amputated between the thigh and the knee, and the dissection of the member afterwards showed that the bones were all rotten. The lad was bitten by a snake some time ago while running in the creek bottoms. The strange part of the case is that the snake bite was on the foot of the other leg instead of the one which shriveled and decayed.

Ladoga, June 9 – “Where am I?” were the first words spoken by Miss Merrill Zimmerman, the high school girl to her mother when she came out of a trance yesterday which had lasted since last Tuesday morning. The girl is still so weak that she can not leave her bed. During the entire time she was in the trance, Miss Zimmerman showed no animation, except when she turned over on her side. Overwork is supposed to have been the cause of the nervous trance. … Ladoga June 7 – Miss Zimmerman, the young high school graduate who fell asleep last Tuesday morning is still in a state of coma. She has taken no nourishment or water since she passed into unconsciousness. Once she opened her eyes but apparently saw none of her relatives at the bedside and made no effort to speak.
