"Crow" Stump Ribbed by Editor in 1921


Transcribed by Norma Knotts Shaffer from microfilm of the Calhoun Chronicle dated 1/20/1921.

Erra Stump, pusher for the Hope, mixed himself up with a flue expander the first of the week, and as a result is wearing one of the finest black eyes it has ever been our pleasure to look upon.  He was expanding the flues in a boiler when the tool he was using slipped and threw him with great force against the boiler, bruising and lacerating his face and head very bad.  This is the tale "Crow" tells and it is a good one.  It may be true but he sure looks like some tooley had worked out on him with a jack handle.
