Accident-We are much pained to learn from Dr. S. A. Horr, that are esteemed friend, Ambrose Meeker, was caught in a threshing machine yesterday and one of his legs was awfully fractured.

Dr. Horr was called and amputated of his leg just below the knee. The operation was performed while he was quietly sleeping under the influence of chloroform. Dubuque Express, Nov. 26.
