Wm Theinert, who was formerly of Sabatis and later of Thompsonville, Ct., where he had a very desirable position, has lately resigned a position in the Cowan Mill in Lewiston, in order to resume work in the Webster Mill. The ill health of Mrs. Theinert will not allow her to remove to Connecticut.

1904 Daughter Broke Arm
Broke Her Arm

Gladys Theinert of Lewiston met with a painful accident while visiting Sunday at Mr. Spofford's place, which is situated a short distance beyond Sabattus.

She was playing with a calf which was hitched in the yard, and one of the adults standing near placed the little miss astride the calf in view of giving her a ride. The calf did not like the proceedings and kicked up its heels and started at a live rate about the yard. During the fracas the child was thrown to the ground and her left arm broken. She was taken to the Central Maine General Hospital, the bone set and the child is now resting comfortably. She is only four years old.
