Dowell, Stoutsville resident, met with a peculiar misfortune
at his home Saturday. He was driving a car with which
he was unfamiliar. When he entered his garage he
stepped on the accelerator instead of the brake and went
right on through the structure. In some way he had the
major portion of one ear torn off. Dr. J. E. Brown was
called the dress the wound and reports that Dowell is
improving from his accident.
