Lost His Arm, The West Bend Journal tells of a terrible accident occurring near that place on Monday of last weeks Last Monday forenoon while Chris Streit and his brother Sam were operating their corn husker on the farm of Paul Dorweiler, four miles northeast of town, Sam got his hand caught in the shredder and his arm was drawn in almost to tbe shoulder and horribly mutilated. He was brought to town and Drs. Bachman and Boody amputated it about four inches below the shoulder. Where corn stalks are fed into the machine there are rollers filled With spikes, and behind the rollers are knives that chop the fodder up into piecus about an inch long, and it was into this part that the arm was drawn. The hand and part of the arm were left in the machine when he was released. It was a terrible accident and should be a warning to people who handle these machines to use every care while operating them. Mr. Streit at this writing is getting along as well as could be expected after such a shock to his system. But he will go through life with an ever oresent reminder of tbe danger in cornhuskers.
