His brother, Vernon Price, and a cousin, William Price, 21 years old, 1147 West Main street, half-ran across Western avenue going west, to beat the red light, and were several feet beyond the crashing wall when,warned by a cracking sound, they turned to see Herman on the sidewalk, hit by a huge stone cornice. Fireman immediately roped off the wreckage-strewn sidewalk, and ordered occupants of a rooming house on the second floor to quit using the building. The lower floor is occupied by the Orchard Pharmacy, on the corner, and the West Main Furniture Co. T. M. Graves, 1518 West Second street, owner of the furniture store, and F. H.

A ragged piece of wall, from the top of the building downward almost to the sidewalk, was torn out. The falling piece ranged from three feet near the top, to almost 40 feet at its widest point."
