Burns Are Not Serious
Engineer W. J. Rinard, of Norton, who was injured by the explosion on Shay engine No. 54 at Williamson on Tuesday morning, passed through the city yesterday afternoon on a cot en route to his home at Norton where he will be confined to the house for some time as a result of his burns. They are not thought serious, and Mr. Rinard was resting well yesterday when he was taken through this city.

Thrown From Train
Conductor Barker was injured yesterday morning about 6 o'clock near Falls Mills by being thrown from his train to the ground. He was standing on top of a car when suddenly the train parted and ran together again with such a crash that he lost his footing and was hurled to the ground. He was not seriously injured and was able to be on the streets last night.
[Conductors were tough in those days!]
