WAHPETON MANAGER FELL IN ELEVATOR
Wahpeton, N.D., Mar. 13—Edgar E Waite, who runs an elevator in this city, while the machinery was in motion, as usual, went to the working room and stepped over the conveyor. He tried it once too often today, however, for his foot slipped into the conveyor and his right leg was broken above the ankle.
The machinery made so much noise that his shouting for assistance was not heard, and he laid there in terrible agony for more than half an hour before he was found, and then he was so wedged in the convey that he had to be sawed out.
