William Myers, an employee of the Marietta Transfer and Storage Company fell from the second story of the Dime Savings Society building on Front Street while loading a heavy safe through the window. At first he was thought to be badly injured, but Myers quickly picked himself up, took a little "nip" at the saloon next door, and went back to work.
