Back Bar Fell on James Leary at
Sixth and Oak.

The unloading of barrels of beer at the saloon of James Leary, Sixth and Oak streets, yesterday afternoon caused the back bar to fall, striking Leary on the head and shoulders and felling him to the floor. Dr. J. Park Neal found a "horseshoe-shaped" cut of large dimensions on the top of Leary's head, extending into the skull. His right shoulde was bruised, as was also the hand on that side, which he had thrown up for protection. After his wounds were dressed at emergency hospital he was taken to his home, Sixth and Cherry streets.
