fatal Explosion at Irvine.
A man and a boy are dead, and
the mother of the boy is probably
fatally injured as the result of an
explosion of a can of nitroglycer
ine at the Winstead home about
a mile from Irvine.
Both of the Winstead boy's feet
were blown off and both of Spivey's
eyes were blown out.
Mrs. Winstead was so badly
shocked by the explosion that she
may not recover, although she has
a chance for life.
The house was badly wrecked
by the explosion, caught lire from
the burning debris and wrs de
stroyed. Neighbors who arrived on the
scene soon after the explosion were
barely able to remove the dead
men and injured woman in time to
save them from cremation.
