ARM THAT WAS CRUSHED SAVED BY GOOD SURGERY
R.S. Armstrong of Steele was in the city today exhibiting a fairly good specimen of a right arm. Several weeks ago his right arm was wound around a pulley in his feed mill at Steele, crushing all the bones, and straining every tendon. It seemed that amputation would be inevitable, but Bismarck surgeons saved the member, and Mr. Armstrong hopes to have the use of it once more. But for this accident the Steele man now would be at Long Island, preparing to embark for France with the North Dakota troops, as he had enlisted in Co. A First regiment only a few days before he was injured.
