Menace to Skaters


Operator of Corn Shredder in Near Fatal Accident.

Sheldon, N. D., Nov. 15.—John Hoffman probably will recover from injuries which he received when he became entangled in a corn shredder, but he will be minus one arm. That member was literally ground to pieces when the young man was caught in the shredder which was being operated at a high rate of speed, he being alone at the time. The shredder practically chewed the arm into bits, and in releasing him from his position the hand and parts of the wrist were left in the machine. The victim is only 26 years old.
