         Omer Armstrong,  who received a very severe sprain to his back from a fall off of a step-ladder, while repairing a line in the power-house of the I. & C. Traction Co. at Rushville, last Tuesday evening, is improving very nicely.  Mr.  and  Mrs.  Fred  Krebs  are in receipt of a card from the unfortunate young man's mother stating that his spine was not injured, which was at first thought to be fractured.  She also stated in her card that he is not able to move off of his back and the doctor says it will be several weeks before he will be able to work.
