BOY INJURES HAND
Stanley Black, 8-year-old son of Mr. and Mrs. Robert Black, last Friday lost the first joint of one of his fingers when his hand was caught in a home-made merry-go-round he and some of his neighbor children had built on a vacant lot near the Black residence, 820 Lake street. This is the lad’s second accident of the summer, the first having occurred when he was bitten by the monkey belonging to the Sanger circus, which exhibited here about two months ago.
