Trip to the Doctor

When Lizzie Fiebiger (now Mrs. Christ Helm) was a little girl, she got a beard from a foxtail grass in her ear.  Her mother couldn't get it out, and they decided to take her to the doctor.  Her father drove the wagon to Jessie to catch the train to Binford.  In Binford Dr. J.R. Truscott examined her and gave her ether while he removed the awn.  As she came to Dr. Truscott was fanning her face and calling her name, telling her to wake up.

They went back to the depot and caught the southbound train back to Jessie.
