Killed in the Rolling Mill

A young man, a German, aged about 17 years, named Conrad Woolf, was killed in the Rolling Mill at Johnstown on Thursday night, the 24th ult., by being drawn between the Rolls. While in the act of reaching across the Rolls to obtain an oil can, a knit jacket which he wore caught in the machinery and before he could disengage it he was drawn through between the Rolls, by which he received such injury that he died in about an hour after. His head passed through at the coupling, a space of about eight inches, and was not much hurt, but the greater portion of his body passed obliquely between the Rolls and it was consequently terribly bruised and crushed. So says the Cambria TRIBUNE.
