DISASTOR DIDN'T HAPPEN,
Heavy Rock Pell WlicroQIant Powder
Had Just Hccn Removed.
Luck or providence appears to
have become interested in Jim
Ovcrturl". It saved him from being
blown to smithereens by a giant
nowdor explosion last Monday.
One part of the warehouse of the
Pilot Huttc company at the mill yard
is used for an office. The company
is doing some blasting of rock at
the edge of the river nearby, where
a wing dam is ttttdcr construction.
Jim Ovcrturf who has charge of
the mill yard, noticed n broken
box of giant powder, from which
but little had been taken, on the
warehouse floor where somebody
was likely to stumble against it, and
as a measure of safety he set it up
on a shelf in plain sight where its
dangerous nature would be appar
ent to all. A few minutes later as
Ovcrturf was sitting in the office
an uuusally heavy blast was set off
and a rock weighing n- hundred
pounds or more sailed into the sky
and descended squarely upon the
roof of the warehouse. It crashed
through that roof and through the
floor underneath, precisely in the
spot from which the giant powder
had been removed n few miiites be
fore. Instead of the explosion that
would nave wrecked the structute
and caused loss of life there is only
the insignificant injury to the build
ing, because of the providential
carefulness of the young man in
moving the giant powder at the
