A yonng lad named Wiedott, aged 9 years, living in Pittsfield township, near Ypsilanti, met with a terrible accident Tuesday morning which may resuJt in bis being orippled for life. Anotber lad was driving a roowing machine and asked Weidofï to touch up the horses with a whip. He did so and the horses sprang forward. The unfortunate little fellow was unable to get out of the way quick enough and the knives on the cutting bar struck hiña squarely ou the legs, cutting the calves of bis legs clear to the boue, the arteries and tendons being cut so that the ankles flopped aronnd uselessly. Dr. James Hueston, of Ypsilauti.was called and he bandaged up both legs and reports that his patiënt is doiug nicely, the circulation of the blood being very free in the forepart of the leg. Just what the final result will be cannot yet be deterinined.
