A TERRIBLE
A. Algard and Son, Earl, Ea:h
Loses Left Arm by Terrific Ex­
plosion at the Plow Works.
BOTH MEN HAVE NARROW
ESCAPE FROM DEATH
The Injured Men Were Repair­
ing Steam Piston for the
Watertown Steam Laundry.
A terriffic explosion occurred
at the Bramer-Algaard Plow
Works in this city last Monday
afternoon which resulted in in J.A
Algaard and his son,Earl,each los
ing their left arm, and narrowly
escaping death.
The men were at work repairing
a steam piston which belonged to
a steam engine which the Water
town Steam laundry purchased at
Webster. Mr. Algaard and his
son had placed the piston in a
forge and heated it in order to
shrink the piston rod into the pis
ton so that they could tighten up
the piston rod. The piston was
then lifted to an anvil where the
young man tapped the piston rod
with a sledge hammer. In an
instant the explosion occurred and
both men lost an arm apiece in,the
twinkling of an eye. The explo
sion was terrific anil b|Qken pieo^
f-
top,?*'1
of the casting tor? several large
holes thru the roof of the machine
shop.
John Wold, an experienced ma
chinist employed at Hess & Rau's
machine shop, says there was no
doubt a small amount of water in
cased in the hollow space of the
piston, which, when heated caused
a high pressure of steam, and the
explosion Was the result He says
it is not the first time that this
same accident has occurred—that
several years ago the same thing
happened in this state, killing one
man and crippling another man
for life. Mr. Wold says it is a
dangerous proposition for a man
to place a piston into the fire be
fore a small hole has been drilled
in it to let the steam out. "A
half a cup of water, placed in that
position is enuf to kill a dozen
men," said Mr. Wold.
Both father and son were taken
to the Watertown hospital where
the attending physicians found it
necessary to amputate their left
arms just below the elbow.

WATERTOWNy, SOUTH DAKOTA, FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 3,1909
It appears that the drayman who
does the hauling for the Park &
Grant Mercantile Company was
loading sugar at the Great North
ern freight depot and the boy was
playing around the dray and was
on the dray when the load was
ready to move. The driver told
the boy to get off the dray several
times but the lad did not pay any
attention to him. It is said that
as the dray started. the boy at
tempted to -get off and before tfhe
horses could be stopped the hind
wheels passed over the little fel
low's legs with over two tons of
sugar on the dray.
The boy was immediately taken
to the Watertown hospital where
every effort is being made to save
his limbs from amputation.!
It is a very unfortunate accident
for the boy, but there seems to be
no one to blame but nimself.
