is an experience which Tom Brown,
negro laborer, underwent Saturday at
o'clock, when a heavy mass or earth
and concrete debris fell in on him
while he was in a fifteen foot excav-
ation at the Buhrman-Pharr whole-
sale hardware store.
Fortunately for Brown there were
a number of workmen above him at
the time and they set to work to un-
cover him. Brown was in a stooping
position in the hole working, he said
later, when the mass 0f earth fell in
- and buried him. By the time his fel-
low laborers had removed the earth
which covered his head, which they
located by his groans. Fire Chief W.
J. Springer, of the Texas side, had
arrived with a pulmotor from the gas
and electric company, but this was not
needed. He was then pulled out from
the earth after about fifteen minutes
of digging, and he was taken in a
Reverra-Fewell ambulance to the hos-
pital, where he was given attention.
It was found that no bones were bro-
ken r.or were there cuts, but Brown
complained of being very sore about
the head, neck, chest and arms—in
fart sore all over from the crushing
he received. He is a strong man. of
Brown lives on the dump and he
stated yesterday that he was not
afraid of the big brick building fall-
