WESTFIELD MAN INJURED. ScttsSkM-Stcj. James Took. Formerly of This Place, Met Results That Can Be Accomplished by With a Horrible Accident at Brie Last Thursday Afternoon. Business Management In the Care of ■ Vineyard. Last year we published a report od a five acre vineyard owned by D. K. Falvay, which Bhowed the receipts and disbursements for one year. Mr. Falvay hired all the labor done on this vineyard. Last year he purchased a farm containing thirty aores of vineyard. It was the opinion of grapegrowers that a small vineyard could be run by hiring all work done with better results than to let it on shares, but to operate a large vineyard on this plan would be a failure. Mr. Falvay pursued the same oourse in handling this large vineyard that he did on the small one. He kept no team or man, but hired everything done by the hour paying 85 cents per hour for man and team, and 15 cents per hour for day labor, up to the time of harvesting. He states that his greatest expense was for trimming, that item being eighty-six dollars. He considers that the cheapest work done on the vineyard. He believes that careful trimming is the most important work done in a vineyard. The total expense for work up to the time of harvesting was $329.69. This vineyard was dragged with a springtooih harrow to get out all the small brush, then gang plowed, horse hoed and nand hoed. Kainit was then put on every vine. During the summer the vineyard was dragged three times and cultivated twice. Then a furrow was thrown up to the vines with a one-horse plow. The balance of the vineyard was : plowed with a gang plow, the ridges being leveled by a spring-tooth harrow. Last season being an extremely wet one, 1 more labor was required than ordinary to keep vineyards in good oondi tion. The Erie Times of Friday, January 30, 1903, has the Hollowing account of & horrible accident that befell James Tong, who is a son of the late James Tong, and a former resident of this town. Mr. tong's many friends here will wish for him a speedy recovery. The Times says: LYON'S CENTRAL DRUG STORE, 'Phone No. 80.

"James Toug, who lives on Twentysixth street, between German and Parade, and who is engaged as a driver for the Erie Brewing Company, lies at the St. Vincent hospital in a precarious condition. He was brought to the hospital in Berkeukamp & Schaal's ambulance at about 4:30 yesterday afternoon, from Richard Daily's saloon at Fourth and State streets, where he mtt with the accident that may cost him his life. Dr. J. F. Black has had charge of the case and says that he believes Mr. Toug will recover. Mr. Tong was engaged in putting a half barrel of beer into the cellar of Mr. Daily's place at the time of the accident. The barrel weigned about 225 pounds, and Mr. Tong was letting it down the steps, one at a time. He was preceding the barrel and was walking backwards. After going down a few steps, his feet slipped out from under him and he fell with his face against the edge of one of the steps. The barrel, which was no longer being held, rolled completely over bis body, and crushed the corner of the step into his face. Barkenkamp & Schaal's ambulance was called immediately and Mr. Tong was taken to a neighbor's house, near hia/v-own, on Twenty-sixth street. Dr. Black was called and he had the young man removed to St. Vincent's hospital. Dr. Black, with the assistance of Dr. Purcell, straightened things out as well as possible. At midnight Mr. Tong had a hemorrhage, but Friday morning revived very satisfactorily. At 4 o'clock I Friday afternoon Dr. Black intends to wire the broken bones of the jaw into position, and f hopes thereby to get his patient well onto recovery. The success of the operation will not be known until after going to press. Mr. Tong has many friends in Erie, and they alt hope to see him survive this strange and horrible accident."

Jones of Portland, against Struthers, Wells & Company, of Warren, and the Pan-American Exposition Company, for injuries received at the Pan-American, finally reached a decision at 11 o'clook Saturday morning. The attorneys for the plaintiff attempted to prove that the accident was the result of negligence. Judges Thrasher and D'isher, who represented Struthers, Wells & Company, contended that if there was carelessness involved, the Pan-American Company was responsible having leased the engine for their own use from the Warren firm. Consepuently, the jurors, after deliberating an entird* night, found a verdict of no cause for action against Struthers, Wells & Company, and 815,000 damages against the exposition company. A. B.
