ACCIDENT AT THE HEALTH EXHIBITION. On Wednesday a serious accident occurred in the machinery department of the Health Exhibition. A man named John Sycamore, aged forty-eight, em- ployed at one of the ventilating apparatus exhibits, was at work in a railed-off portion of the exhibition of the Blackman air-propeller. This apparatus revolves at great speed, causing a strong current of air to rush into a room behind, which is open for visitors. The man appears to have been stooping under the air- propeller for some purpose, and to have forgotten its presence, for he rose suddenly, and the sharp edge of the revolving flange caught his head, inflicting a terrible wound. Uttering a shriek, the man threw up his left arm, and this also got caught, and a portion of it was torn away. The man sunk down in an un- conscious condition to the floor, and was immediately removed to the hospital. The injuries will probably prove fatal.
