Kicked In Face by Horse
FRANK EBERT BADLY HURT MONDAY MORNING. TAKEN TO HOSPITAL
Frank Ebert, living east of Lowell, was out in the barn Monday morning harnessing the horses preparatory to getting into the field, when one of the horses kicked him and knocked him down. After he was down the horse kicked again and the second time struck him in the face. Medical aid was called at once and upon examination it was thought best to send him to a specialist in Chicago and he was taken in on the 11:12 train. There it was found that his jaw was broken in three places and the roof of his mouth was broken and also his nose. He was taken to St. Joseph hospital and the injuries cared for. While his injuries are very serious it is thought that unless some infection should develop that he will be alright. It is to be hoped that he will soon recover from the accident.
The latest word from Mr. Ebert is to the effect that he had a good day Tuesday and was doing as well as could be expected under the circumstances.
