Tho Portland Bulletin gives the fol
lowing account of a shocking acci
dent that occurred in Wcidlcr's mill
in that city, on the 20th ult : A work
man was repairing tho belt which
runs from the main line shaft to- tho
lath machinc,and John Olscn, Swede,
was assisting. Ho had mounted a
pilo ot slabs which enabled him to
support tho belt and keep it off the
shaft while the men were riveting tho
break. Just how it all happened no
ono will never know, but tho employ
es were suddenly conscious of a catas
torpho which is sufficient to fill any
mind with horror, and paralyizo it
for tho timo being with a sickening
senso of its awfulncss. Tho young
man seen whirling with frightful
rapidity in the embrace of tho shaft
by which be had been caught, and in
the next, tho frightened, powerless
men saw his body literally severed in
twain at the abdomen. Tho trunk of
tho body was hurled forward through
tho door into an adjoining room tho
legs dropped to tho floor beneath,
and ono arm, which had been wrench
off, remained fastened to the shaft
whore ttic belt rested upon it. Jbor a
minute or so after, tho accident the
nerves of tho face continued to twitch
and distort tho features as though tho
death agonies wero only then being
suffered, instead of lifo being extinct.
llio iragments ol tiio body were
gathered up by tho workmen and re
moved to tho dwelling occupied by
his two brothors and himself, all of
whom are employed at the mill, and
were engaged at work during the time
of the occurrence, though the brothers
were spared tho awful sight by per
forming duties in another part of the
