The many friends of Alfred Dingley have been pained to learn that he froze both his feet while going to Beach, N. D., he being out in that blizzard which passed over that country just in time to catch them when he and the Hubbles went west three weeks ago. Whether the freezing occurred on the train or on going out from the station to the only house the party was able to get - some miles out on the prairie - is not known. Anyway his feet were so badly frozen that it was necessary to take him to Glendive, Montana, to a hospital where he could have medical attention. Yesterday morning word was received that it had been necessary to amputate both feet at the ankles in order to save more serious consequences. It is most unfortunate for Mr. Dingley as he had planned on putting in a long season’s work at his trade as a carpenter at good wages, while this banishes all hopes for doing anything in that line for a long time if at all. He is troubled with kidney affection, which makes his trouble the more complicated. He stood the operation as well as could be expected.
