Blown Into His Eyes by
Serious Injury to Edward Wright-
Face Badly Burned.
Edward, 16-year-old son of Mr.
and Mrs. George W. Wright, of 108
Beck av., was injured by an explo
sion of powder Thursday evening.
Edward had a tent in the back
yard of his home, and Thursday
evening decided to take it down.
When the main stake was pulled up
quite a hole was left in the ground.
The lad procured some powder and
.wrapping .it in a piece of paper,
placed it in the hole, and lit a fuse.
The explosion occurred sooner
than Edward had designed. He was
standing beside the hole. Both eyes
were filled with dirt and powder,and
his face was badly burned.
Dr. Harry Todd and D. H. Lewis,
the oculist were called to the Wright
home to attend to the injured boy.
They are of the opinion that Edward
will not lose his eyesight, although
his injuries are very serious.
Because of the accident, it is prob
able that the case against him in
Common Pleas court will be dropped.
