Shelbyville, Ind.
Wednesday, August 11, 1920
           John R. Andix, who resides just across the Shelby county line in Hancock county, suffered a severe fracture of the left leg just above the ankle when he was run over by a horse in the barnlot of his home.  Mr. Andis was helping to load stock to be taken to Indianapolis when the horse which had been running loose in the barnlot came towards hi, kicked him down and ran over him.  The accident is especially grave because of Mr. Andis' advanced age of 82 years.  However, today he was progressing unexpectedly well.
