Stutler Youth Loses Eye in 1901

(10/10/2002)

Transcribed by Norma Knotts Shaffer from microfilm of the Calhoun Chronicle dated 1/8/1901 and 2/12/1901.

1/8/1901
One of D.E. Stutler's little boys met with a very serious and painful accident about a week ago.  He was playing with his brothers when he fell off a fence, running a splinter in one of his eyes, doubtless causing him to lose his sight.  The attending physician thinks there is danger of inflammation to the brain resulting from it.

2/12/1901
D.E. Stutler informs us that his little boy, who fell from a fence, running a splinter in his eye, some weeks ago, mention of which was made at the time, has lost his sight in the injured eye.
