Carried Dynamite In Vest Pocket

Dogden, N.D., May 13. Mike Bonderenka, who has been working on the Peace river farm this spring, had his hands injured by the explosion of a dynamite cap. It appears that Bonderenka has been in the habit of carrying dynamite caps in his vest pocket, together with his matches, and when he took a match out of his pocket found that one of the caps was caught on it. The cap exploded while he was trying to get it loose. He lost his thumb and one finger on his right hand, besides lacerating both hands badly.
