p.3 Timber Accident - On Saturday afternoon one of the employees of Calvin & Breck, named Clement was jammed across the shoulders against a vessel's mast by a stick of timber, which was being hoisted out. It was thought that he was most dangerously, if not fatally, injured, but Dr. Irwin was telegraphed for and he was soon resuscitated, and today is in a fair way to a quite early recovery. No bones were broken. The injury was the result of a pure accident, against which every precaution is usually taken.
