Fell in Cistern.
While attending a Hallowe'en
part } ' at the home of her father-
in-law , Christian Wamsley , on
Wednesday evening of last week ,
Mrs. Maud Heck-Wamsley fell
into a deep cistern. One of the
the boards covering the cistern
had been taken up for some of
the games , and Mrs. Wamsley , in
going in quest of some paper
with which to wrap up some
dishes , and not being aware of
the absence of the usual covering
of the cistern , stepped in the hole
and plunged into the cavity.
She called for help and Christian
Wamsley slid down the tubing
and picked her up , when a ladder
was lowered and he brought her
up. Dr. Fast reported the in
juries very severe , but at this
writing she is a trifle better.
Severed Little Finuer.
While chopping some kindling
Monday morning , preparatory to
making a fire at his smithing
shop , Samuel Prater sustained a
badly cut finger. The hatchet
missed the end of the piece of
kindling and struck the little
finger on his left hand , leaving
it hanging on by a piece of the
skin about a quarter of an inch
in length. Dr. Miner stitched
the finger back on and it is
thought at this writing that it
can be saved.
