Injuries," sail tho New York represen
tative of a big pulp mill company, "that
I do not think o aome remarkable in
stances of tbe kind that havo occurred at
one of our mills ia the northern part of
this state. On one occasion a workman
named Wolf was engaged ia cleaning a
machine nsed at a certain stage in the
process of pnlp manufacture. . The prin
cipal feature of this machine waa two
very heavy iron roller one above the
other. When in operation, the upper
roller waa pressed closely down on tho
lower 4 me. "and tliey revolved in opposite
directions. To clean these rollers the up
per one waa raised seven or eijjLt inches,
the machine of coarse being at rest.
In the course of his work Wolf, who
was a young Herman, thrust his head
and fchonlder between tbe rollers to see
lietter to clean tbe lower roller. While
be was in tliat positiou some careless
person turned on the water power. The
rollers started at once, and before the
alarm could be given and the water
turned off Wolf was drawn clear through
between tbe rollers and dropped on the
other aide, as much like pulp, so far as
appearances went, as anything could be.
I happened to be in tbnt part of tbo mill
at the time and saw tho frigbtfnl mishap.
I ran to where the liaip form of the
workman lay and dispatched a messen
ger at once for a doctor, merely as a
matter of form, however, for that any
thing could be done for the shapeless
Tuaaa of humanity never entered my
mind. It was impossible to lift the body.
We ahnffled it on to a blanket and car
ried it to tho nnfortunatc man's home.
I noticed that, although there was not
the slightest evidence of cxiurciousncss.
Wolf was still breathing and that his
heart was Irating. When the doctor
came, lie declared that from tbe ahoul-
Cera down there waa positively not a
single whole bone left in W olrs body.
He said there was not one chance in ten
thousand of the man living.
" lt wonld take 10 doctors a week to
set bis Is roes.' bo said.
"He incased the body in plaster from
the neck down, and when he came next
dav was amazed to find that Wolf was
etill alive and had regained conscions-
ncss. Wolf lay incased in plaster for
r overal wet ks. His bones knit and grew
together again, Imt in such a way that
when be wus ablo to ;rct around he was
covered with knobs and ridg and jneer
corners and angles from head to feet
But he was olive. He was our niht
watchiuan for 10 years after that and is
"Another time a workman in a dif
ferent part 'A tbe mill named Sanneman
was caught in n Hg lielt by a felt apron
be wore, and ltefure the works conld le
stopped he was whirled seven times
around tlie pnlleyg. striking the ceiling
with tremendous force each time. He
was taken up for dead. I examined him
before the doctor came, and there wasn't
even the tum of an abrasion or mark on
his body. Ten minutes later, when the
doctor came, he was as black as coal all
over. There wasn't a spot on him that
was not discolored. The doctor exam
ined tbe man carefully, and to his
amasement found that there was not a
Imne broken anrwbt-re about him. His
injuries were so slight that lie was at
work again within two days. Yet he
had panaed seven times tl .-ough a spaco
between the pulley and the beam not
over seven inches wide.
"Once the l:;ia of one of our mills bo-
came so clogved with logs that tliev in
tcrfered with the water power. It was
necessary to release the jam or shut down
the mill. Tbe work would necessarily
endanger the Uvea and limbs of all who
cngagm! in it, ana volunteers were asked
tor, handsome extra ly being offered.
Plenty of men were ready to take the
risks, anions them Pat O'Brien, an Irish
man, CI years old. He insisted on being
one of the (ping end joined it against the
tirotest of the stiprnntendent.
"The work of releasing the log jam
went all right until the key log that held
tbe main jam was to lie removed. There
lay the danger. The key was removed.
and the men made a wild dash to escape
the rush. They all got out of the way but
four, among them tbe old Irishman. Pat
Ualrieu. These futtr were canght among
tho lugs and went over tbe falls, a sheer
descent of 83 feet. Men and logs went
over tigetlier, and everybody sujqxMted
that the men would lie ground to atoms.
But a most astonishing thing hapmncd.
In falling a number of logs fell on end
in a group, tlieir upper ends toppling to
gether, f irming an almost perfect tent, or
peaked hut. with tbe down stream side
open. The men had escaped injnry, not
only from tbe logs in the fall, but from
tbe tremendous plunge itself, and it was
as they Untied in the water below that tbe
tent of logs formed with them beneath
its shelter. Thii saved them from being
urowneu iy toe water . that plunged
down from tne great height.
"There was constant danger of the
shelter of logs being forced from its
lodgment by tbe pressure of water. In
view of the hitter danger, -when it came
to rescuing them, the three Tounzmea
of the party urged old Pat O'Brien to be
hauled up first. He obstinately refused
to be hauled np until his companions
naa been rescued, when be took his
chance and was landed safely above.
He bad scarcely been lifted above the
shelter of tbo logs when it gave way, ax.d
the logs went crashing and thunderins
on down the stream. I have heard of
wonderful escapes of death, but never
anything so wonderful as that." New
