Articles & Local History > Schuyler Dow's New Leg

Tampico Tornado, Oct. 20, 1876

THAT NEW LEG - Schuyler Dow has at last succeeded in getting that new leg he's been talking so much about for the last six months or so. He took it out of the express office one day last week, took it home and with the help of several persons, "he put it on and screwed it tight," and after a few manful endeavors finely succeeded in getting control of that new pedal appendage, and although, it is a little unruly at times he thinks he will soon be able to walk with as much ease "as any other man." Schuyler is quite proud of his new leg and looses no chance in letting the inhabitants know that he is the happy possessor of that long looked for Leg.
