Local News - July 7, 1917

Columbia City Post ~ Saturday July 7, 1917
  • The local physicians were slighted Wednesday and they have a right to feel a little huffy about the matter. The doctor is usually a leading figure on the Fourth and he generally has from two to three legs to sew up; several hands to bandage and other injuries to dress, but Wednesday proved to be so sane in this city and surrounding country that no one was hurt. It is safe to say that the doctor as well as every one is pleased to learn that accidents were few and far between. It is believed that when the entire list is summed up, Wednesday will prove to have been one of the sanest Fourths ever celebrated in this country.
