James Babb, one of Hendricks township's most prominent farmer residents, was painfully injured yesterday evening while he and his son-in-law, John F. McCain, of Indianapolis, and some other men were putting up a wire fence on the Babb farm near Jons Crossing. The accident was caused by the breaking of the stretchers that were being used to hold the wire in place. After they were released they flew back and caught Mr. Babb on the left leg below the knee, inflicting a most serious injury. At first it was believed the bone had been fractured, but Dr. S. L. Strickler, who was called from Boggstown said the limb was very seriously bruised, but that there had been no fracture. The shock of the injury made Mr. Babb very ill and he was not able to leave his bed yet today. He is nearly eighty years old.
