Wedeking, Fred (Ear Cut Off - 21 JAN 1915)

A peculiar accident is reported from Abbotsford. Fred Wedeking, a young man of that place, slipped and fell on a bowling alley, striking the side of his head against the corner of an electric piano. No one saw the accident, but a few seconds later someone noticed that one of his ears was gone, it was the first he had heard about it, but sure enough on making an investigation he found he was minus an ear. The lost member was found lying on the floor near the piano and the ear and its owner were taken to Dr. Johnson’s office where it was put back in place and it is now growing on again.
