Man Caught Between Engine and Separator Suffered Terrible Injuries.

Rugby, N. D., Sept. 10.—Edward Lommen, of Flora, N. D. was brought to the hospital here with a broken leg, broken arm and several ribs broken. Lommen, who was working on a threshing rig, accidentally got caught between the bumper and the engine when they were coupling up and as a result suffered the injuries.

Local physicians deemed best not to reduce the fractures for a day or two, owing to his physical condition, due to the terrible shock and loss of blood, one of the ribs puncturing a lung. His condition is not very critical and it is believed that he will fully recover.
