To Appoint An Applicant

INJURY WHICH BEFELL JOHN ROCHELLE, MEMBER OF FIVE COMPANY NO. 5, COMPELS HIM TO GIVE UP PLACE—MAYOR WILL MAKE APPOINTMENT

John Rochelle’s days in the fire department are over. The accident which befell him sometime ago, left his arm in a useless condition. Fire Marshall Doty has asked Mayor Bosch to appointment an applicant to fill his place.

Rochelle was shot in the right arm during hunting season while out for a day’s sport. The shot entered his arm at the elbow. Dr. Schumaker attended the injured man and by extraordinary efforts the arm was saved from amputation.

However, the leaders were severed, making the fingers practically useless. Rochelle was a member of Company 5, and was the most efficient fireman in the department. His friends and fellow employees propose to give a benefit for him.

Rochelle lives in Heaton street, is married and has a family.
