Then He Pulled the Trigger and the
Bullet Passed Through His Foot
Henry Harrison, of the Younger
grocery store, had tho mlsfortuno to
shoot a hole in his foot while after
jack rabbits on his tract of land near
Echo yesterday. Mr. Harrison had
been after some of the crop of that
part of the country and thought that
he had emptied his Run In the effort
to pot a few of the fleet-footed na
tives. In company with E. M. Lyons,
A. Kunklo and Sir. Halligus, of
-Athena, Mr. Hawlson stopped to rest
and put the muzzle of his rifle on
tho toe of his Bhoc. In some manner
ho pulled tho trigger and the bullet
went through his foot between the
toes and the instep, and passing
through the sole of the shoe burled
Itself in the sand.
The injured man was carried to
the shanty on the place and from
there taken to Echo, where he board
ed the train and was brought here,
where the wound was dressed. While
the accident was a painful one, no 111
effects are expected to arise from
it, and Mr. Harrison will be out
again in a short time.

Care Are Smashed, Ground to Pieces
and Along With Many Tons of Coal
Are Plied in a Great Heap Two
Wrecking Crews Are at Work and
May Clear Track by Tonight.
Iieadiiig DruggifltM
Two wrecking crows are busy at
the scene of yesterday afternoon's
freight train wreck In Cayuse con
yon, and hope to have tho track clear
In a few hours. Last night when tho
work was started It was thought that
tho debris could be cleared away In
10 hours, but It Is not done yet and
tho trains from tho west are held
here as they come.
The scene of tho wreck was one
of chaos pure and simple. Soventeen
cars had been piled one on the other
and their contents strewn along the
track, and all jammed In tho short
distance of 100 yards. There were IB
of the cars loaded with coal and this
Is piled on tho track and spilled over
the edge of the right of way down
into the river bottom. In tho smash- j
up was one car of fast freight and
one of electric conduits. The latter
was badly broken up while the for
mer was thrown partly down the em
bankment and off of the trucks, but
was not broken open.
Caused by Broken Flange.
Tho wreck was caused by a broken
flange on the front wheel of tho first
car back of the engine. Tho first Ave
cars of tho train were steel coal cars
and they wero followed by a long
string of cars also loaded with coal
The first car behind the engine had
47 tons of the fuel on board and the
supposition is that when the front
flange hit the curve It was not strong
enough to stand the strain and gave
way, breaking out a piece about eight
Inches long.
Drakeman George Hurley, who was
slightly injured, was sitting on the
last of the steel cars on top of the
coal when the first car broko loose
from the engine and was stood on its
end In front of tho train. Hurley
threw himself flat on the coal of the
open car. As ho lay there he saw
tho tops of a couplo of cars back of
him shoot over his head and the
tank cars In front of him turn end
over end along the track; then he
was mixed up in a cloud of dust and
coal and flying trucks and beams and
parts of cars. As soon as he struck
ho got up and started out of the lit
ter but found himself Inside of a box
car out of which ho had to gropo his
way. How he got Inside the car, or
what became of the car on which he
was riding he does not know, for the
steel cars are buried under the wreck
or thrown over tho edge of tho road
The Tramps Escape.
lien Wilson, a tramp riding In one
of tho box cars, was thrown into the
brush at tho river bottom, and oacap
ea wiin a row slight bruises. Ho was
InBlilo a loaded coal car, about the
mlddlo of tho train, and when tho
crash came his car was thrown partly
down the embankment. The Impact
of tho conl against tho car broko tho
front out and tho. man was thrown
out with tho coal and down tho ban!
Before ho could pick himself up hi
car was literally ground to pieces
tho train behind.
Two tramps riding on the train Just
back of the part of the train that was
wrecked, thought thoy had reached
Pendleton, and after waiting a long
time for tho train to start, decided
that thoy had been sidetracked. They
crawled out and found that the
In which thoy wero was the first one
of tho train that had not been wrecl-
ed. When the trainmen returned
with the wrecking crow, they found
tho men on one of tho wrecked cars

have to walk to town,
