Local historians weekly "Back Issues" article in the Manawatū Standard. Injuries and fatalities caused by boys and men using well sharpened axes were common in the late 19th century, with many workers involved with bush clearing. Bush felling and saw milling were Manawatū's first industries. Medical aid was often carried out by the bushmen themselves, with no nearby doctors or medical centres.
