1890 - Three Fingers Mangled.

News
While jointing some heavy two-inch planks upon the buzz planer at Nims, Whitney & Co.'s, Thursday morning, Oscar H. Fay let his left hand slip from the work which he was holding. The fingers struck upon the planer knife and in an instant were terribly cut and torn. The small finger was severed below the second joint, the next one between the joints, and the middle finger was split or planed off so that the first joint will be stiff. Mr. Fay was taken at once to the office of Dr. Gleason and his hand was dressed by Doctors Gleason and Flagg. He will draw $25 a week from the Iron Hall during his disability.
