While on her way to work in the Dingley Foss shoe shop Wednesday noon Miss Flora Bailey of Manley Street, Auburn, was hit in the right temple by a baseball thrown by one of the young men playing ball in the street in front of the shop. It was purely an accident and the young man was in no way to blame.

Miss Bailey was knocked unconscious. She was carried into the shop and restoratives applied but as she did not recover she was placed in a carriage and taken to her home. Dr. B. G. W. Cushman was summoned and attended her. He stated last night that although seriously injured, Miss Bailey would recover.
