Well Digger Has Accident
Tony Hutton, living in Fairview addition, who has been operating a well drilling outfit on the Russell Irwin farm north of town was brought to Langdon Friday to undergo the amputation of part of the fingers of his left hand which had gotten caught and badly crushed in the machinery of the drill, the power for which is furnished by a gasoline engine. Hutton was brought to town in an auto and was in quite a weak condition owing to the loss of blood. He narrowly escaped the loss of the hand.
