against the ceiling, but sustained
no serious injury, and today was
able to resume his duties.
Mr. Jacobson had climbed to
replace a belt which'had slipped
off its pulley. While he was in
the act of doing this, the project

shaft caught his sleeve, and in a
twinkling it was ripping and tear

closer and closer to the shait.
In this dangerous position Mr.
Jacobson resisted with all his
strength. Half of his clothing
was wound arounu the shaft when
he himself was lifted bodily and
hurled against the ceiling. The
shaft was within fourteen inShea of
the ceiling. The injured man

The Saturday News is now the
official paper of the county of Cod
ington. The appointment to pub
lish the official proceedings of the
board of county commissioners was
made by the board at its meeting
last week. The appointment is
for the year 1910 and the first pro
ceedings will be published this
week. In addition to publishing
the official reports of the proceed
ings of the county commissioners,
official publication "will be made
of the quarterly reports of the
county treasurer and the county
pal court Tuesday afternoon for
a preliminary examination. The
complaining witness is M.Bourett,
a fur buyer.
Mr. Bourett alleges that' he
contracted with Allen to purchase
/. obtained mon
false pretenses, Scot

rat hides, and paid $5
down on the Contract. The time
fcas passed, he claims, for the de
livery of the fur and not one of
the 900 skins has shown up. It is
the claim of the prosecution that
Allen, had no hides, and hence
committed a crime when he ac
cepted the earnest money.

Thursday of next week is the
day on which the voters of Water
town will decide whether they wish'
to adopt 'the commission plan of
city government in' 'the place of
the special charter which has been
the fundamental law of the city
since 1887. The polls will open at
o'clock in the afternoon, and the
polling places are as usual in the
four wards.
During the week much discussion
has been 'hid relative to the merits
of the plan. Considerable opposi
tion has developed, and today, a
week before the election, it is
difficult to predict the outcome.
Many are found who state their
belief that the plan will be de
feated while, its ardent supporters
claim that it will be a winner.
