CRUSHED UNDER BIG SEPARATOR Frank Jakonbek Has Back Bro ken In a Threshing Machine Accident in Roscland. Frank Jakoubek, who has been threshing in the vicinity of Svea for some time, had his back broken in an accident which occurred yes terday morning about 9 o'clock, three mites from the farm of Jo seph Feifarek in the town of Rose land. The machine was being moved and Jakoubek was sitting on the pole of the separator, directly under the self feeder attachment, when the king bolt of the front axle broke, letting the entire weight of the front part of the ma chine down on the unfortunate man. It caught him between the shoulders and pinned him down so fast that it was only with conisder able difficulty that he was released. He was at once taken to the farm home of Mr. Feiafrek and a physi cian summoned from here. The doctor's examination revealed that the man's back was broken a little below the neck, rendering him paralyzed from that place down. At the present writing there is little hope of his recovery, altho a tele phone message this morning said that he was resting a little easier. A telegram was sent from here yesterday afternoon to a Wm. Fin ger at Oconto, Wis., announcing his injuries and serious condition Anotheu telegram was sent to the same place this morning to his wife, asking her to come. Jakoubek came to this county from the woods in the northern part of this state and Wicsonsin, and he intended to remain here until the threshing season was over, then re turn to the lumber camps. Besides a wife, he is said to have four chil dren, a fact which renders the sad accident even sadder. It is also said that he is a beneficiary in some lodge in which he carries an insurance of $1000. Dislocated Neck* While sharpening the knives of the H«rty«tters in the self feedai of a separator last Sunday evening, Gust Anderson, an employe on the Sonderson-Bratberg machine, lost his balance and fell down,striking on his neck and dislocating one of his vertebrae. A physician was at once summoned and he found the poor man completely paralyzed from the shoulders down. A tele phone message this morning stated that his condition is very critical and that there is very little hope of his recovery. Anderson is a widower, about 56 years old, and has a son in an orphans home. He is a brother of Mrs. A. T. Holm, who lives near Lake Florida. Clothing Was Appreciated. A letter has been received here from Rev. C. P. Bates of Hibbing, stating that the Relief Commission had received the supply of clothing sent from here to aid the unfortu nate people who lost everything in the fire which recently swept over the ranges. The letter further states that the recipients were very much delighted with the supplies, and that they wished to express their heartfelt thanks to the donors. The appeal made to the citizens of Willmar for clothing was most generously responded to and as a result no less than 1500 pounds of it was packed and boxed by the Campbell Furniture Co. and sent to the scene of the disastrous conflag ration. A Stranger In Trouble. A stranger giving his name as Frank Peterson caused quite an ex citement at the Minneapolis lodg ing house Monday evening. Every body had gone to bed and all were trying to forget all about their troubles when suddenly they were disturbed by some hair raising yells and screams emitted from Peter sons' quarters. It sounded as if someone was being murdered, and A. C. Crawford, the acting night patrolman, was at once notified to appear. He did so, and after look ing around in the dark for some time found Peterson apparently suffering in great agony* A phy sician was sent for and he diagnosed the case as a severe attack of the quinsy. The man was made as comfortable as possible until yester day, when he was given a ticket and put aboard the train bound for St. Cloud. Peterson said he came here from North Dakota, where he had been threshing during the past three weeks. He gave Minneapolis as his home and said that his par ents lived at Akely.
