The Hammock

This story comes from Parshall among the news aftermath of the recent storm which swept that city: When the recenty {sp} heavy storm hit Parshall, Charles Pierce, local agent of the International Oil company, was sitting in his office. The office was smashed to bits, and Pierce, a stove, and a 1,800-pound save were blown some 60 feet away. The safe fell on Pierce's leg, but that limb was artificial, so Pierce left it there and hopped to his home.
