Had Not Regained Consciousness Thursday Afternoon
Wednesday afternoon while Lou Galligan and Casper Beardslee were repairing a telephone wire past their property. Mr. Beardslee was at the top of a ladder, which was leaning against a telephone post when the post broke near the ground throwing him over the center of the highway which he struck head first.
He was rushed to Goodrich Hospital and his condition was still serious as we go to press.
