'A FATAL AFFAIR. i i . ! Jimmie Hendrickson, ot'San- i taqiiin. Killed hy Powder. I "With Other Boys, Ha Went Prowling Around th9 Saiiroad Camp, and In-! In-! dulg-ed in a Blasting- of His Own. j James Andrew Ilendricksonj the j I'ourieen-yeai-old son of Andrew llen- tii iekson of Sitntatju'n, met with a hor-! hor-! rible death Sunday alttimton. Ilen-! Ilen-! diickstut, with some other boys, went i to Goshen, or near that point, and com-! com-! lug to a cut under construction for the new ra Load, where blasting is neces-isary, neces-isary, powder was found. It appears the boys, after setting tire to some rub-! rub-! bish, concluded to do a l.ttle blasting Ion their own account. Hendrickson j had put some of the powder into his ' pocket, and by some menus not yet made clear, the powder exploded, en-j en-j velop.ng the unfortunate boy in fla'ues, ; which caused his death in a fe.v hours afler the accident.
