JENKINS, Mr.

FROM DAVIS NEWS
Two men were killed at Henry this week. A Mr. Jenkins, from near Martinsburg, W Va. He was working in the upper vein of the shaft, (the shaft being near 500 feet) and as the cage passed up he rang the electric bell for it to stop, but having been tardy in ringing the bell the cage passed about ten feet above its accustomed place, before stopping, and he opened the gate and walked out and fell two hundred feet, broke his neck and one leg. He breathed until they got him above ground. The other man was a Pole and was killed by the slate falling on him while digging coal. These are the first serious accidents which have occurred at Henry.
