The Middletown Valley Register informs us that Maurice Culler, a young man 15 years of age, residing in the family of his grandfather, Mr Daniel Derr, about two miles north of Middletown met with a severe accident last Friday morning. He and his uncle, Mr. Charles H. Derr, were on the way to Frederick with the team, hauling 100 bushels of corn, and in dismounting the saddle horse about one mile west of Frederick, his foot caught in the stirrup and he fell, when his left foot was caught under tho front wheel and very badly crushed. He was brought to Messrs. P. L. Hargett & Co´s store, in this city, where Dr. Johnson tended him and dressed the injured limb. He was subsequently taken home and is now under the care of Dr. J. E. Beatty, of Middletown, who reports him to be doing as well as could be expected, considering the mangled condition of his foot.
