1910 Sep 22 – Serious Accident

Scaffold Collapses With Three Men – Arthur Milner Has Back Broken
While engaged Wednesday afternoon in shingling the first rows of Engineer R.T. Perkin’s new residence on 3rd Ave. S.W. the scaffold from which they were working suddenly collapsed with A. Milner, Wesley and Wallace Cleaver, throwing the former two to the ground 20 feet below. Wallace Cleaver managed to catch on to a window sill and saved himself. The crash of the falling scaffolding was heard some distance and brought several neighbours to the spot at once. The unfortunate men where extricated from the fallen timbers and carried to the home of Mr. Geo. Sergant and on the arrival of Dr. Bottomley taken to hospital. On examination of the two men it was found that Cleaver had several ribs broken, while Milner was more seriously injured, his spine being broken between the shoulders, and it is feared he has slim chances of recovery.
Milner is a young Englishman and came to Dauphin from Gladstone two years ago. He has taken an active art in he town band as solo cornet player. His father resides in the north of England and is being communicated with.

A very large audience gathered in the Methodist Church on Saturday evening, to hear Dr. Medd lecture on “Tuberculosis.” The chair was occupied by the Rev. W.R. Rowan, minister of the church, who in introducing the lecturer took the trouble of saying that it was the Doctor’s first attempt at public speaking and trusted that the audience would give him their best attention and sympathy. This the audience did and the lecture proved to be highly interesting and instructive. The lecturer laid great stress on the fact that dirt and dust were the principal carrying factor of tubercular germs and made a strong appeal for the admittance into the home-life of sunlight, fresh air and space, which he sad were the deadly enemies of tuberculosis. Other important matters were touched upon in the course of the lecture, and the information and advise given should prove to be of great benefit to the people of Winnipegosis.
On the proposition of W.E. Rowan, seconded by Mr. Shannon, a hearty vote of thanks was accorded the Dr. for his interesting lecture. Cake and ice cream were afterwards served. The proceeds amounted to twenty dollars.
