HIS SKULL AS AN EXHIBIT.
County Court is Willing to Pay
for Removing It.
Robert Carel, who has a claim against Jackson county on account of falling rocks from a blast striking his head and crushing his skull, gave the county court a portion of his skull in a glass jar yesterday.
Isaac Kimbrell told the court that he understood perfectly well that the county could not be sued. He stated that the injured man was driving by a repair gang managed by Thomas Gaines. The blast was set off and falling rock crushed Carel's skull.
The court asked Mr. Kimbrell to confer with the county counselor in regard to the county making an appropriation covering Carel's expenses. The injury, Mr. Carel stated, occurred October 8.
