PICKS DYNAMITE CAP WITH HAIRPIN; LITTLE GIRL LOSES A FINGER.
Mandan, N.D., June 2.—Caroline Kautzman, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Raymond Kautzman of St. Anthony, had a narrow escape from being killed, when a dynamite cap exploded, blowing her left hand completely off, badly lacerated her right and tore a terrible gash in her left side.
The little girl was playing with the cap and with the natural curiosity of a child she picked the cap with a hairpin to see what was inside of it. The accident attracted immediate attention of the girl's mother and a local physician was called. Temporary relief was given the girl, and she was brought up to the Mandan hospital, where she is now under the care of the nurses and her physician.
