from Corn Shredder by
- Lyle Gonse, a 21year-old youth, yes
terday afternoon stood and watched
companions chop his arm off above
the wrist with an ax, thus saving his
life. Gonse was feeding a corn shred
der on the farm of Thomas Middleton,
two miles from Muscatine, when his
fingers caught in the rollers and were
drawn into the machinery. The alarm
was given and the power stopped after
the hand had been mangled. Fellow
workmen seized an ax and attempted
to break the rolls and free the injured
member. The efforts failing and see
ing to death, the. man who was swing
ing the ax chopped tha hand o2 above
the wrist. The flow of blood was
then stopped and the patient hurried
to the hospital at Muscatine. There
the arm was cut off at the elbow and
it was stated that Gonse will recover.
