the Calhoun Chronicle dated 5/7/1931.
While sharpening posts last Tuesday morning Russell Parsons had the
misfortune to inflict a bad cut on his left leg, just below the knee with
an ax. He was taken Tuesday afternoon to Spencer where the wound
was sewed up and dressed by Dr. W.C. Camp. He then returned to his
home here and was taken back to Spencer occasionally for treatment, but
the wound, in spite of the treatment became badly infected and it became
necessary to take him to hospital so he entered the City hospital at Spencer
about 10:00 o'clock Saturday night.
Roscoe Hunt the fifteen-year-old son of Mrs. Albert Douglas, of Fink,
exploded a dynamite cap in his left hand while on his way to services at
the Orma M.E. Church last Saturday night.
His companion Frank Keener went immediately for help. Lee Edgell
was found and he took the young man to the City hospital at Spencer.
He entered the hospital shortly after midnight. It was found necessary
to amputate the thumb and two fingers.
