WHILE AT WORK ON NEW
WELL KNOWN HERE
HM Been With Anderton Machine
?Sc Foundry Company for Past
John Nally, a structural steel work
er In the employ of the Anderson
Machine St- Foundry . company, was
dangerously but not necessarily fatal- j
iy injured yesterday afternoon on the
new theatre building where he was
directing a force of workmen engag
ed in placing some steel beams in the
structure. Mr. Nally suffered an In
jury to the skull, just over the right
eye, and, while lt is a serious one,
the attending physician stated last
night that the patient had a fighting
chance to recover.
No one seems to know just how thc
accident was brought about, as lt oc
cur od so quickly no one was able to
note the exact details. A force ot
workmen were engaged in raising a
gin pole which ls used In hoisting
heavy steel beams into place In the
theatre building. The gin pole had
not been placed in its perpendicular
position, and in attempting to keep the
butt of it off from the wall Mr. Nally
was using a piece of scantling aa a
lever. Something about the appara
tus slipped, causing violent weight to
be brought down upon the lever
whtch Mr. Nally was using. The
lever flew up In some way and struck
him just over the right eye, Inflict
ing a fearful .wound.
Mr. Nally was rushed to the Ander
son Hospital immediately, where med
ical assistance was summoned. Dr.
W. Prank Ashmore reached the in
jured- men's side within a- tow thin- -
utes, and, assisted by Dre. Herbert
Harris and Holbert Acker, performed
the necessary operation.
The Injured man ls about 40 years
of age and UveB on West Market
street. He has been employed by* the
Anderson Machine & Foundry com
pany for the past eight years or more
and was engaged principally in struc
tural steel work. During the term
of his connection with this well known
concern he has erected a number of
steel water towers at various cotton
mills about the city and in the coun
ty and erected a number ot stacks.
HC is CSC Cf thv ?nest valuable mcu
in the employ of the Anderson Ma
chine & Foundry company and there
is the keenest grief over the accident
which has befallen him.
