LUDFORD, Enoch – Head Wound from an Axe (1898)
Mr. E. LUDFORD came home from Jacksonville Saturday night suffering with a painful wound on the head inflicted by an axe. It seems that he was walking with the axe on his shoulder, and in some way fell, the axe striking him on the head. Dr. S. HASSELL has been rendering medical attention and Mr. LUDFORD is getting better now, though at one time the wound was thought to be of a very serious nature.
