Suffered Dislocated Shoulder Sunday.
Mrs. Wm. McMillen Injured in Runaway Accident Sunday Morning — Is Improving.

Mrs. Wm. McMillen suffered a dislocated shoulder about 11 o’clock Sunday morning when she was thrown from the buggy in a runaway.
Mr. and Mrs. McMillen had started to the home of their son, Wm. McMillen, Jr., about seven miles east of town, to spend the day. About three miles from town the team, which had not been worked recently, shied at some object beside the road and started to run. Mr. McMillen lost control of them when one of his lines broke, and the buggy was upset and badly damaged. Both of the occupants were thrown from the buggy, Mrs. McMillen receiving a dislocated shoulder. Mr. McMillen escaped with only a few scratches and bruises.
Dr. Rowlett, County Physician, happened along and brought Mrs. McMillen to town, where with the aid of Dr. Pierpoint the shoulder was attended to. She is reported as doing as well as could be expected.
