Eye Cut.

The ambulance was called to the Tredegar-Iron Works about 11:30 yesterday morning. Essie Woodson, a colored man, had been cut on the eyelid with a piece or iron thrown at another party, and which went wide of its mark. The doctor sewed up the eyelid, and left the injured man in care of his friends.
