While assisting his son Alfred to butcher a few days ago, George W. Gaver, a well known farmer residing east of Middletown, met a narrow escape from serious injury. Eight hogs which were butchered were hung on a long pole, and after the last one had been placed the pole broke. Mr. Gaver who was standing beneath it was almost caught under the heavy mass as it fell to the ground.
