Cooper, J. W.

ONE KILLED, THREE HURT - As a result of a dynamite explosion at the Fort Smith Lumber Camp 25 miles east of here, which occured Wednesday morning, there is one man dead and three others slightly wounded.

The dead man's name is J. W. Cooper. He was closest to the explosion and his body was blown to atoms. The largest part of his body that was together was his legs. The parties that were hurt were R. H. Covington, woods foreman, who had several ribs broken and received some severe bruises and powder burns about the head and face. Dan Jackson, who is slightly hurt, and a man by the name of Willson, who is also painfully hurt but not seriously.

The report came here that these men were blasting where the construction work is going on. They were using electrical appliances to touch of the blasts and that the shot that caused the accident was not connected to the firing machine at all. By some unknown cause the shot was fired while the men were at close range.

We learn that the dead man's mother lives in Missouri and a telegram has been sent apprising her of the death of her son. (WWW.YellCountyObits.org, Submitted by Patsy Gatliff, Newspaper: Fourche Valley Herald, Plainview, Arkansas; 12-5-1912)
