The "Rangitikei Advocate" says :—Bush whackers, m following their calling, often meet with nasty accidents. The mates m these cases always acting m the most loyal, true, and kind manner to the unfortunate sufferers. Two cases of mishaps arrived m town on Saturday. A poor fellow while cutting bush at the side of a stream made an awful gash m the calf of his leg, he was a big man and his mate much smaller. The wounded man could not walk so the little fellow carried his mate seven miles on his back over a rough bush track, he then met another man who helped carry him another eleven miles, the rest was done m a dray, and he is lying at the Red Lion Hotel. Another case was as follows :—Thomas Kennerley, while cutting bush some miles beyond Kennedys, missed his stroke m some way and cut a nasty gash m his instep. After washing the wound, it was thought best by these bush surgeons to sew the wound up, and this wounded man m the most plucky way sewed up his own foot and then rode into town, arriving here as stated.
