Motor Cycle Wrecked
Yesterday at noon while Norfolk and Western signalman C. P. Haben was spinning along at a rapid rate on route from Graham to Bluestone, while rounding the curve just east of the old saw mill, an unknown white boy about ten years of age who was playing on the right of way, placed a stick in front of the flying motor cycle, wrecking the car and throwing Mr. Haben to the ground. Fortunately he was not hurt but his machine received a broken axle and had to be shipped in for repairs. The boy scampered home.
