CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO.
Max Wielpuetz of the C. Wielpuetz
bakery met with a serious accident
yesterday morning on his return from
Illmo, where he had gone in his auto
mobile to make his regular deliveries
to his Scott County patronage.
About four miles south of the city
he encountered a pile of rock in the
road and, before he could stop his car,
he ran into the obstruction with such
force that the machine turned com
pletely over, stripping the top com
pletely and reducing the wind shield
Mr. Wiclpuctz was pinned under the
car, where he was held until his com
panion, Frank Shy, had secured as
sistance from a nearby farmer, who
helped in releasing the imprisoned
Mr. Shy was unijured, but Mr.
Wiclpuptz was badly hurt. Several of
his rib: were broken; his back was
badly wrenched, and he received some
dcv.p gashes in the top of his head.
The ro?k was placed in the road for
the purpose of filling up some chug
holes, and Mr. Wielpuetz came along
before the workmen had completed re
pairs. He was driving at a moderate
rate, but failed to see the obstruction
on account of it being placed on an
abrupt curve, where it could not be de
tected by anyone approaching from
the south, in time to avoid contact.
The rnjured man was taken to his
home and medical attention given him.
He is said to be suffering considerable
pain, but his condition is not regarded
as critical by his physician.
Tony Job. a former resident of this
County, who for years lived a few
miles west of the Cape, on the Dutch
town road, is reported to have been
seriously injured a few days ago
while doing some work in his machine
shop at Advance.
Mr. Job has been a cripple for many
years, having lost one of his legs in
a sawmill accident when he was a
young man, since which time he has
been compelled to use a wooden limb
attached to the left knee.
While attempting to correct some
defective condition of the machinery
he lost his balance and fell from a
shaky platform into one of the large
belts and was carried into the wheels
His- body was badly mangled and the
wooden leg was torn to splinters. The
thigh to which it was attached was
broken in two places. His condition is
considered serious, and it is feared by
his physician that internal injuries
