1871 - Clock Accident

A few days ago, while the clock on the St. James Episcopal Church, in Old-town, Me., was being wound up, the chain attached to one of the wights parted, and the ponderous iron weight went crushing through the ceilings and floorings, passing directly through the chancel in to the basement of the building.
