Crushed by Lumber

Leidy Hunter was crushed to death at Blandburg some days ago by lumber falling upon him. He was a pattern maker for the Harbison-Walker Company and had gone into the dry house to look at some lumber. He walked between two very high piles and the jarring of the floor of his tread threw them together, burying him out of sight and inflicting injuries which must have been almost if not instantly fatal. The accident occurred at noon Friday but his body was not found until Saturday afternoon.

The deceased was forty-one years of age. He resided at Barnesboro for several years and worked as a carpenter for contractor J. D. Ritter. He was married to Miss Ruth Willets, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Willets of Barnesboro who, with three children survive him. His aged mother lives at Philipsburg where the remains were taken for interment.
