Willison Man Badly Injured
Williston, N.D., March 22.—H. B. Breen while drilling a well on the Todd place Tuesday afternoon was struck in the face by the crank of the pump shattering the upper jaw in a terrible manner. The auger had struck and while releasing the drill the accident occurred. Medical aid was called immediately and the unfortunate man removed to the Wittenberg hospital where his injuries were attended to. It was thought for a time that it was impossible to save his life but the injured man thus far has stood the accident well and at this time hopes are expressed for his recovery.
