MEETS WITH PAIN
FUL AGOIOENT WHSL
From Wednesday's Pally.
Yesterday afternoon, Harry Win
cot, who has been assisting in th
threshing at the farm of Albert Wet-
enkamp, near Mynard, met with quite
a painful accident. The young man
had stooped to get a think of water
during the course of the afternoon
and as he raised up from the stooped
position his head struck the belt
wheel of the thresher and thiew ihe
young man up against something, but
what it was, he has no definate recol
lection, and as a result he sustained
a severe cut over the right eye that
made it necessary to have medical
assistance summoned to care for the
young man. He remained in an un
conscious condition for some twenty
minutes before it was possible tc
arouse him and for a time it was
feared the voung man had sustained
some very tlangeraus injuries. Dr. E.
W. Cook looked after the injured
young man and dressed his injuries
and it is now thought that Ilarrv will
be all right in a few days but will
not soon forget his experience. II is
friends in this city will be glad to
learn that the accident was not more
serious and that the victim is getting
along so nicely.
