Little Earl France, son of Mr. James France, had an exceedingly narrow escape from- serious injury, or as easily, sudden death, on Monday. He was playing on the streets near Mr. J. B. Illingworth’s, and not noticing Mr. John Andrews’ milk wagon, he started to cross to the opposite side, and was knocked down by the horses, and when picked up by Mr. Illingworth he was unconscious. It was at first thought he was dead, but he revived, and an examination revealed a badly lacerated right hand, a sorely bruised arm, and face scratched and bruised. It took several stitches to close, the wound in the hand, and the lad is now recovering- Almonte Gazette- May 9, 1913
