Orma Woman Seriously Injured in 1931


Transcribed by Norma Knotts Shaffer from microfilm of the Calhoun Chronicle dated 11/12/1931.

Mrs. Dave Smith found a dynamite cap on the back porch of her home at Upper Big Run last Saturday morning.  Not knowing what it was she picked it with a pin which caused it to explode.  It exploded in her left hand, tearing off all the fingers on her left hand.  Mrs. Smith underwent a serious operation in a hospital in Charleston just a few weeks ago and it is reported that the explosion tore the incision.  She was taken to a hospital in Charleston and the latest report indicated that there was little hope for her recovery.
