Washington Correspondence to Minneapolis Journal: Major Hamilton of North Dakota met with a painful accident while shopping with his wife during the holiday break. With his arms filled with bundles which were to be shipped by express to the northwest as Christmas presents, he slipped and fell on the pavement, dislocating his left arm and shoulder. His left hand and wrist are missing as a result of service in the army, and in falling he threw out the stump to save himself. The limb was set and put into a plaster mold and is doing very well. Today for the first time since the accident the major was on the street.
