1913 Jun 6 – Peculiar Accident

While looking after a brood mare one day last week, Duncan Cameron, ex-M.P.P., and a leading merchant and farmer of Gilbert Plains, met with a peculiar accident. He was in close proximity to the horse’s head at the time, and as is often the case at this season of the year with brood mares, the animal was vicious, and with a quick swing of her head towards Mr. Cameron’s face, she grabbed a portion of his lower lip in her mouth and bit the piece right off. The wound is an aggravating one and it will be some time before it is healed up. It was a first thought his speech would be affected by the wound, but it is now believed this will not be the case.
