ity of the exhibit be good. There is no
school in Holt county but what some

Review of the Mill ExDlosion at
Mound City, in 1878,
Kecenily J. M. Ford and thehMrof
Harvey Naudiey, through Administratt r
T. W Burke, sold the machinery in the
old Wales mill, on West Seventh street.
to Fred McCann & Brother, of St. Jo
seph. For several days past the Mc
Cnnns have been taking the machinery
out of the building and shipping it to
St. Joseph, where it will be painted and
rebuilt and be again put on the market.
This machinery will all be removed
before March 1, when there will be noth
ing left of the old mill but the empty
building. Seeing the men at work calls
to mind the disastrous explo-ion of a
boiler which occurred in this mill, and
which wns attended with terrible fatal
results. It was the most appalling dis
aster that has ever occurred in Mound
City, live men fallirg victims to the ca
tastrophe. On the 28th of February,
187S, about o'clock in the afternoon, an
awful noise was heard, and the buildings
for blocks around the mill were made
to tremble. Glancing in tho direction
from whence the report came, bystand
ers on State street saw bricks and other
debris flying in the air. Then there was
hurrying to the scene, and the work of
reraoviug the dead and dying was begun'
Caldwell, the miller; a wood hauler by
the name of Riley Williams, James An
derson, a farmer; James Dawson, assist
ant miller, and the engineer, Jack Ack-
ley, were the victims. No just blame
was considered to attach to the engineer
or any one connected with the mill, the
explosion being purely accidental. The
pump had gotten out. of order, it seems
and the engineer evidentl ruhed from
the engine room into the mill and culled
for assistance. All the men in the mill
including Anderson, the farmer, who
had a grist, went either to assist or see
what was was wrong, for all five were
found in close proximity to the boiler
Young Dawson was blown through the
brick wall and scalding water was still
flowing on him when ho was removed
alive by Amer Cranneil and Rev. Dun
can Brown, who were first to arrive. Fie
died in great agony about midnight. A
part of the boiler was hurled across Da
vis creek, and there was not a brick left
in place in the brick smokestack, and
the wreckage wi s great. The Mound
City Steam Flouring mill, this being the
name first given the mill, was built in
I 1870 by W.J. Hall, at a cost of about
$8,000. As an inducement to locate here
! and erect the mil!, Hall received a bonus
of $2,500 from the citizens of Mound
City. The building was a two-and a
half story frame structure, oOx.'lO feet
area. It was equipped with three run
of burrs, affording a grinding capacity
of .'100 bushels of wheat and corn per
day.
The structure of the mill, which was
badly wrecked by the explosion, was re
built in the summer of 1878 by R H.
Dawson and Mrs. W. J Hall, the widow
of the original proprietor, who died in
July, 1877.
Later the mill wa owned by Isaac W.
Zigler and others. Some improvements
I were made, but the mill did not prosper.
! Capt. W. H. Wales and sons were the
lust owners. They took out the burrs
and substituted a full set of rollers
The company became involved, and as
competition ftom the new mill was too
great i hey failed and turned over the
property to creditors, and th Wales
family went to Kentucky. The mill has
been standing idle since 181)9. Mound
