BOY EXPLODES CAN OF POWDER KILLING SELF AND WRECKING HOUSE

PIEDMONT WV, Nov 10

While his mother was out of the house about 8 o’clock this morning, Lawrence, the six-year-old son of Mr. and Mrs. William Laupert, of Westernport, was killed when he got into a can of powder in the kitchen and is supposed to have set a spark to it, as a terrific explosion resulted.  Every window in the lower half of the building was shattered, and the kitchen was almost completely demolished.

The little boy was taken to the Hoffman hospital at Keyser in Dr Z T Kalbaugh’s automobile, but died shortly after reaching there.

The father is a miner and kept his can of powder in the kitchen.  There was about ten pounds of powder in the can this morning on account of there being no one in the house at the time except Lawrence, it is not known how the explosion occurred.  It is thought, though, that the boy may have rolled the can in front of the stove where a fire was burning, or carried a lighted match or stick close to the can.

The three lower floor rooms were all badly wrecked.  The damages is estimated at about $1,000.

WM R BELL DIED

Dr S M Mason, coroner’s jury would be impaneled some time before noon today to hold an inquest and investigate the death of William R Bell, of Piedmont, shot at Zeising, two weeks ago Tues night by Policeman Frank Corbin, who it is stated fired the shot to save himself from probably being fatally stabbed with a dirk in the hand of Bell.  The body of Bell is at the Lynch – Osborne undertaking establishment, where the inquest will be held.

Yesterday Mr Mason performed an autopsy over the body.  It was found that the bullet had entered the body almost directly over the heart.  A rib caused it to glance, and take a downward course to the liver and intestines.  Peritonitis developed and Bell died Mon afternoon.

A Spaniard, presumably from Ziesing, visited the morgue yesterday and viewed the body of Bell.  He said he knew the man well that he was married and that the picture of the small boy and girl found in Bell’s clothes was of his children.  Bell and his wife, it is said, had been separated for some time.

The body, so far as could be learned last night, will be taken to Piedmont, Bell’s home.  The time for the funeral services and burial will not likely be made until the inquest is completed.  Bell’s mother is Mrs Emory Bell of Piedmont.  He is also survived by two brothers and a sister.  – Clarksburg Exponent of 17th
