Fireman Injured (1917)

Columbia City Post ~ Wednesday, January 31, 1917

A. J. Hake, a fireman on the Pennsylvania, was injured while loading some coal at the coal docks west of this city Friday night. The shaker bar that is used to shake down the ashes broke and hit him in the face and the right upper jaw bone was fractured. Dr. D. S. Linvill the railroad physician was called but as he was out of town Dr. Ben P. Linvill was called in his place. The fracture was reduced by Dr. Linvill at the C. U. tower. Mr. Hake continued his run with the assistance of two of the brakemen.
