George Hendricks, a teamster, Friday afternoon sustained a broken jaw, a cut neck and bruises when he drove into a wire clothesline across a vacant lot on West Knight Street that he failed to see. Hendricks was seated on top of a load of wood. The team ran away hurling him to the ground. His jaw is a plaster of paris cast.

The Southern Oregon Traction company, of which S.S. Bullis is president, received this week a carload of heavy iron and street railway rails which were designed especially for and known among railroad builders as special work for curve construction. This material is to be used by the traction company in making the curve in their line from East Main street into the Siskiyou Heights cut.

A gang of men is now at work cutting away the pavement preparatory to putting in position this curve material the first of next week after which the rails will be laid through the cut and for some little distance beyond. This will complete the line from Central Avenue east to Siskiyou Heights, save a rail connection at the west approach to the concrete bridge over Bear Creek, which work has been held up pending the arrival of a few steel castings necessary to make the proper connection. These castings are now here and the connection will be made within a few days.
