R. STOCKING INJURED

Roderick Stocking of Mayfield, father of Ralph Stocking of this city, is suffering from an accident which might have proved very serious.  He and his son Porter are threshing at the Fred Stayton farm near Mayfield and their machine is run by an electric motor.

In some unaccountable manner Mr. Stocking took hold of a bunch of live wires with a current of 13,200 Volts.  Ralph says that the situation is similar to that described by one of the Chautauqua lecturers last summer when he said that a great deal of electricity has just the same effect as a small amount; that is the person will be stunned but not seriously injured.

Mr. Stocking was put to bed, and while he is still unable to be up today, it is thought that he will suffer no serious result.  A peculiar circumstance of the affair is that a tack in one of his shoes burnt a hole in his heel.
