FALLS IN BOILING WATER PIT
MAN AT GLUE CO. DIES
Until Tuesday James Conway la
bored long and hard for the North
western Glue Co., a stockyards con
cern which is said to be owned by
Swift & Co., the packers.
His job was a bitter one. Standing
over vats of boiling water, he was
hired to shove waste carcasses into
the hot liquid that the grease and oil
might be boiled out of them.
In spite of the long hours and tire
some work, Conway had to be ever
on the alert, for the floor was slip
pery and the boiling water was but
a few feet below.
Tuesday afternoon he was shov
ing a load of pigs' feet into the vat,
where the terrific heat would soon
reduce them to a mushy mass. He
slipped, bounced on the side of. the
scorching iron tank 'and splashed
into the churning, hot water.
Several times he screamed as he
struggled to reach the side of the
blistering vat But he had worked
alone and there were none near to
hear him.
With the flesh of his legs and. hips
slowly cooking, blinded by clouds of
steam that welled up past him and
crazed by the pain, he managed to
get to the side of the tank, where he
drew himself up and out and lay un
conscious. It was some time before a fellow
workman, passing by, saw the limp
form on the cement floor, but he
quickly raised a shout and one of the
bosses sent for an ambulance.
Surgeons at the Wesley hospital
hardly had time to pull clothes loose
from sticky flesh before the body
stopped breathing.
o o
Findlay, Ohio. While undertakers
were preparing body of Frank Price
for burial, that individual heaved a
sigh and sat up. He may recover.
