Lawrence County Newspaper Articles
Some ten days ago Mr. Hugh McKinley, a farmer, and an excellent man, residing near Moravia, in North Beaver township, while cutting a slice of bacon the knife slipped and made a small wound in the forearm. Mr. McKinley paid but little attention to the wound and continued husking corn for several days, when the sore became inflamed and traumatic erysipelas set in and soon involved the whole arm, and now a large portion of his forearm has become gangrened and the flesh sloughed off. He is in a very precarious condition, and not much hope of his recovery is entertained. Dr. S. Brittop, of Moravia, is the medical attendant, and Dr. John W. Wallace counseling physician.
