Chefalo Seriously Injured. The Chicago Journal of Sept. 3 con tained the following: “Women were thrown into a panic and many fainted when Nicholas Chefalo, a Chicago trick bicycle rider, failed to “loop the gap’’ at the Lake county fair at Crown Point. Instead of making the “gap” he was hurled into the air and fell twenty-five feet. “The grand stand in front of which the exhibition took place, was crowded with spectators. Chafalo’s act was one of the sensations of the day’s performance. Every person was closely watching when he flashed around the loop and prepared to make the gap. The trap from which he shot after making the loop failed to work and he shot into the air. The rider was picked up uncon scious. He was hurried to a hospital at Crown Point, where it was found that he was injur* internally and had a broken jaw bone.” Chefalo’s performances were among the special attractions of the recent South western Wisconsin Fair at Mineral Point.
