G. W. PYLANT was in town from the Caps district today and reported the condition of J. D. HILTON Jr. unchanged. It will be remembered that while working in a mine in Alabama a few weeks ago, the young man came near being killed, having sustained a broken back and other painful wounds from a cave-in. His father went after him and since their return, there has been but little change in his condition. Mr. Hilton’s neighbors gathered at his home Wednesday morning and picked four bales of cotton for him.
