A boy 10 years of age named Herbert Slavin, son of Mr. Jeremiah Slavin, of Springhurst, was on Wednesday, amusing himself, in company with other youngsters, by leaping over a rail placed on an elevation. His foot struck the rail as he was jumping, and he was throw head foremost to the ground, the fall breaking his left arm midway between the wrist and the elbow. The boy had his arm broken in the same place eight months ago, and the limb was consequently weak. Dr. McCardel attended to the injury at the Wangaratta Hospital, and Slavin was taken home.
