in the sickle of a self binder. He and Bert Hough were cutting some
wheat west of town with four horses pulling the binder. Mr. Hough was
driving and told Ola to whip up a little for him. Ola carelessly stepped
in front of the reel and touched up the horses. They moved forward a
good deal faster than he expected and the reel caught him and threw him
do wn upon the sickle. The sickle bars penetrated the leg and lacerated
the flesh and the sickle cut the side of the leg above the ankle to the

called and dressed and is treating the wounds which are healing nicely.
It was lucky that the injuries were not much more serious.
