He fell on. hia side. He was carried to a house at the top of the hill and im- mediately regained conaciouinesa, got on his feet and wanted to -walk op- town to have a doctor examine hia arm which he thought was either broken or sprained. His fellow work- men however insisted that he wait the arrival of the ambulance which waa then ordered.
