BROKE HIS ARM

Charles Wissinger, aged about 13 years, son of Joseph Wissinger, residing near the toll gate, while playing with some other boys at the saw mill at Allegheny Furnace Monday afternoon, fell a distance of about thirteen feet, breaking his left arm at the wrist, and otherwise bruising himself. Dr. Hartzell attended him and reduced the fracture. The boy is getting along as well as could be expected.
