HERO OF INDUSTRY, GETS
CRUSHED AND NEAR DEATH
SAVES HIS FRIEND'S LIFE
(By Vnited Tress Leased Wire.)
rHILADEWHIA, Fob. 3. —<arl Kdsburß, v structural Iron
worker once, but now a legless cripple, and bis pretty sweethenrc,
little Miss I'etra Benteln, are RomK to be ninrrietl MOB. They arr
only waiting till Carl can Ret HKZO,«»«O that a jury awarded him the
other day as damages for the loss of bis legs while ut work In the
Baldwin locomotive works.
Back of this romance and the court award Is one «if the brav
est tales ever told on the fields of modern industrial battle.
Two years ago Carl was lying
at work on an Iron girder SO
feet in the air, with his legs ex
tending across the track of an
electric crane. Without warning
the big crane slid along noise
lessly over his legs, crushing
them under ten tons of steel.
"I shouted to the engineer,"
said Edaburg, "but he evidently
didn't hear me, for the crane
came back, pinning :ne down.
One of the first to reach me was
an electrician. He t>pj, ran hack
ing at my legs with I rusty knife.
He had eat three gashes when I
asked him w.hat he was doing.
He replied that he was trying to
cut off my legs so 1 could be re
leased.
"I complained to the foreman,
and he chased the electrician
away.
"When George Sliiiiiinii, n
friend, ranie up to where I
was, to help me, I sniv him
turn pale and kneel over tlie
girder. I saw he liad falnt
ed, and gruhbed him as lie
went over. I had to tenr at
my legs held under tlio
crane, and it hurt terribly,
but down HO feet below were
Jagged pieces of iron and
steel, and George would
have been dashed to instant
death if I had let go, so I
gritted my teeth and held
on. I ■■in ' I held htm for
live minutes."
It was 3 5 minutes before Eds
burg wag released from the crane.
During the time he was unOer
the crane an electric current
passed through his body, adding
to his intense suffering. Fellow
workmen thought it was mlracuT
ous that he was able to retarn
consciousness, let alone hold an
other man in his arms for live
minutes of that time-.
The doctors cut off one of
Carl's legs, and "saved'" the ottier
for him, hut it Is so twisted and
torn that he can never stand on
it again. For weeks he hovered
near death's brink. His BO le
nurse and friend was Petra Ren
tein, who came over from Den
mark, where she had been the girl
sweetheart of Carl before he went
away to make a home for them ;n
America.

— "' 13RKAKFAST "
Throe days a week —Poorly

Four days a week —Oatmeal
mixed with peach syrup.
This is the present breakfast

ing to the letter seat to County

And the prisoners want a

In a long letter to Reed they
tell him that, since they are ban

stretch from tuppw to breakfast,
about 18 hours, gives them quite
a sizeable appetite.
And they balk at cornmeal and
molasses, and oatmeal and syrup
made from stowing dried peaches.
"Give us hash, or any old
thing—for a change," is the way
the prisoners put it up to Heed.
