BALDWIN CHILD SERIOUS
According to a letter received here Sunday, Randall, the 19 months old son of Mr and Mrs Frank Baldwin, who has been seriously ill for the past three weeks, is still in a serious condition. The doctors, however, think there is a chance for his recovery. The Baldwins are at Kingsdown, Kans., where Mr. Baldwin has been working in the harvest.
The same letter told of an accident in which J. F. Baldwin, uncle of Frank Baldwin, was badly injured. Mr Baldwin was hauling a load of oats when his team became frightened and turned the wagon over throwing him to the ground. He received a broken collar bone and numerous bruises.
