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.
