Serious Accident at Traer
Traer, Iowa, June 1. – A serious accident occurred here yesterday. A young farmer, named, Archie Cuthbertson, was operating a lumber saw. He was sitting on a log near the saw when another log was started on the runway. As the log struck the teeth of the saw it was thrown into the air and fell, striking Cuthbertson on the knee. The knee cap was ground to pieces. The doctor took fourteen pieces of bone away from the knee. It is thought that amputation of the leg at the knee may be necessary.
