And Other Crimes

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.
