of the Calhoun Chronicle dated 9/1/1908.
John Boice, who lives about six miles from Creston in Calhoun county,
was sent home yesterday from the L___ sanitarium, after having been successfully
treated for a fractured windpipe. The case is a rare one in the annals
About a week ago Boice was kicked in the neck by a horse. The
blow from the horse's foot fractured his windpipe and the air escaped into
the tissues of the neck causing it to swell to enormous size. His
friends brought him to the city for treatment.
After week at the hospital through the skillful treatment of local physicians
he was sent back home almost completely cured. While he was in the
hospital Mr. Boice received word that the stork had made a visit to his
home and left a pair of twins, the twelfth and thirteenth additions to his family. He was anxious to leave
for home and left yesterday afternoon. - Parkersburg Dispatch-News
