Arm Injured.
Clifton Christianson, an employe of the tile factory met with a painful accident while at work at the factory Monday afternoon. He was carrying a heavy tile and slipped, falling on the ground in such a manner that the entire weight of the heavy concrete block came down upon his arm. He came to town and sought the services of a physician and upon first examination it was thought that the arm was broken, but the physician was unable to locate a fracture, so an X-ray examination was made. The X-ray failed to develop any broken bone, so the injury is being treated as a severe bruise and is yeilding nicely to the treatment and he will soon be able to resume work.

An interesting case came up for hearing in the probate court Tuesday, when a hearing was had in the petition of Lee Sahlbom, minor, through his guardian, John Salhbom, who made application for a share of the property left by his grandmother at her death. The case is somewhat complicated and has brought out a number of peculiar circumstance, and is the outgrowth of litigation in the Elof Nordquist estate. It appears that Mr. Nordquist left a will, which was contested in probate court and declared valid and the case was appealed to the district court, that tribunal affirming the decision of the probate court. The will it seems did not make provision for the widow to the extent that she would have been entitled by law had her husband failed to make a will. She, being mentally unsound, her guardian failed to take the necessary steps to secure her legal dower, and the widow's share of the property is the point of contest now, the petition being to invest the minor heir with his full rights in the premises.
