the Left Hand.
This morning about 0 o'clock u
laborer named Hell, who is em
ployed in Hie Jtu rl i ;i ti ti ui freight
car shops, was engaged in sawing
a part of a frame on Hie largo rip
paw, and had his hand drawn inlo
it, with the result Unit he is minus
two of the lingers on his left
hand. The index and third linger
were cut so badly it was neces
sary to remove Hi. 'in and I he rest
of the lingers and thumb were
badly scratched up and lacerated,
but I hey were not in such shape
that they could not he saved.
The man had only been employ
ed in the shops about a week and
was not experience ! in the handl
ing of this kind of work, or had
become careless in his handling
of the article on which he was
working. Immediately after the
accident he was removed to Ihe
oflico of the company surgeon and
the fingers removed and the hand
dressed. The man was very much
shocked by Hie a'cident and it
was necessary In olaee him under
the influence, of ether before the
operalion could be performed.
It is almost a miracle I hat all
bis lingers were not, taken off, as
the accident was most severe, and
although he has sii'lered the loss
of two lingers, h" can hi' thank
ful thai he bad any left on his
hand. The injured man came
here u short lini" ago with two
oilier men and has been boarding
at the Atlantic house on Third

Last evening considerable
amusement was created by the
action of a lady who was down

great value of the lowered streets
was demonstrated last nighl, as
despite Hie large volume of water
Mowing there was not the slight
est danger of a Hood, such as had
occurred years before the streets
were lowered and placed in con

There was also much alarm
felt for Omaha, as if was report
ed on the streets just after Ihe
storm that the ; metropolis had

but Ihe report proved groundless,
as only a few minor damages
were done there liv the high wind.
