Nasty Accident at Factory
John Propst, an employee in Cabot's Carbon Factory, below town, met
with an extremely painful, but not fatal, accident while attending to his
duties Monday, one arm being terribly burnt and bruised. He was oiling
an engine when in some manner his feet slipped and he fell, his arm being
caught between the fly-wheel and bed-plate of the engine. Dr. Dye
responded to the emergency call and dressed his wounds. No bones
were broken, but Mr. Propst suffered excruciating pain until the surgeon
dressed it. Mr. Propst is an industrious, honest man, and his friends
will regret to hear of his misfortune.
