Smelter Accident: 0054.0233


            John Toney, one of the men employed on the construction of the smelter buildings, fell from one of the frames a distance of some thirty-three feet but luckily sustained no worse injuries than several severe cuts about the face and a bad shaking.  He was removed to Handley & Wolfe building immediately after the accident and Dr. Green of Cranbrook was telephoned for and arrived two and a half hours later and attended the patient.  Mr. Toney will be around in a few days.
