CHAPIN - George Kotteker, - Postmaster and sexton of Chapin church for many years, fell from the belfry of the church down the entire flight of stairs. Mr. Kotteker is a man nearing 75 years of age and has long been lame for many years having to always walk with a cane. It seems a miracle that he was not killed or bones broken. He received a gash in the forehead, a bruised arm and lame hip which confined him to his home a few days. Even the glasses he always wears were not out of place or injured. He is improving.
