William Geer, a prominent farmer of Superior, met with a painful accident Tuesday. He was leading a horse with the strap wound around nis thumb. The horse shied suddenly so that Mr. Geer's thumb was nearly pulled from his hand at the second joint and hung by just a httle flesh. He at once drove to Plymouth to see a physiciín who was unable to save the thumb. The force suddenly applied to the thumb by the jerk of the horse must have been terrific.
