Engineer Reed met with an accident last night which resulted in the loss of two toes of his right foot. He was starting the feeders which work between the cross-head
of the locomotive and stepped so that his foot was caught. The accident occurred near Eldridge
and he was brought back to Jamestown on the helper
. Dr. Rankin amputated the crushed toes today.
