Bernard Jensen

Young Farmer Hurt

-Bernard Jensen, a young farmer who resides on the Simmons farm south of Preston, is another unfortunate individual who will be out of commission for the remainder of the harvest season.

Mr, Jensen was putting up hay yesterday afternoon and had just sank the fork or harpoon with a load of hay, which caused him to fall from the wagon as it was being drawn away to its place in the barn. He fell in such a manner that his arm was fractured in the elbow, making a very ugly break, as disclosed by the X-ray.

At first he did not think his arm was broken. While it gave him great pain he went ahead at work for awhile but finally gave up and went to Preston and had Dr. Butler give him attention. The doctor made a picture of the arm with Dr. Glew's X-ray machine, which disclosed the injury as above stated.

The bride is a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Hans S.
