E.T. Williams is badly hurt as result of fall

Edw. T. Williams, a well-known citizen of the city, had the misfortune to fracture his hip on Friday as the result of a fall from a porch step at the home of his son, County Surveyor C.T. Williams.

He was taken to Memorial Hospital where an X-ray picture revealed a fracture of the pelvic bone. The many friends of Mr. Williams will be pleased to know that the fracture, although a serious one, is not as severe as many of its kind. Mr. Williams will be confined to the hospital two months or so. His advanced age rendered the injury all the more unfortunate.

Officers raid home brewery near Willard

Don Willett is a prisoner in the Huron County Jail on the charge of possessing liquor.

When he was arrested in a house east of Willard last night by Sheriff Harry D. Smith, Deputy sheriffs and Willard patrolmen, the officers found 40 gallons of mash, 275 bottles of beer and a quantity of whiskey or a similar intoxicant.

The date of Willet's hearing has not been announced. At 3 a.m. the officers swooped down on the establishment. The home brewery appeared in operation and the defendant may be charged with manufacturing liquor, which is a felony, therefore punishable by a term in the penitentiary.

While the officers were examining the mash, a large vessel, containing the mixture, fell upon patrolman Home Sherbundy of Willard.
