C.K. Boyle fell into the chloride vat at 11 o'clock this morning.
The vat had just been emptied and cleaned out, and Mr. Boyle was descending into the vat to inspect it when the ladder broke. He was taken to his home on Seventh Street, and two doctors were called. They found the victim had suffered a severely strained back and a slight inflammation of his eyes due to action of the chloride. The victim is expected to recover sufficiently to return to work in a few days.
