Found unconscious on road
Hugh Peeples of this city was the victim of a mysterious accident last night, and is lying in the Raymond General Hospital suffering from several bruises on the face, head and chest from which he will probably be some time in recovering. At about 8 o' clock last evening Mr. Peeples left the home of his brother, George Peeples, on the Island, riding a bicycle. About ten or fifteen minutes later, as near as can be determined, W.S. Lamme, who was driving his automobile, found Mr. Peeples unconscious in the street at the foot of the hill on Commercial Street. Mr. Lamme picked him up and took him at once to the General Hospital, from which his brother, father and sister were notified of the accident.
