BLAST VICTIM
BADLY BURNED

Small hope was held borth late last
night for the recovery of H. F. Aderman,
Lincoln man, who with two others was
injured yesterday morning by a terrific
explosion of the refuse pile at the Peer-
less Coal company mine, two miles north-
east of the city. Spontaneous combustion
is believed to have caused the blast.
Badly burned on the body and his lungs
weakened by gas, Aderman's condition
was termed as critical by physicians at
St. John's hospital.
Aderman and J. F. Ingram, also of
Lincoln, were probably saved from in-
stant death by the action of the foreman,
Fred Bane, Rural Route No. 8. Himself
blinded and almost suffocated by the gas,
Bane ran to their assistance and aided
them in getting away from the miniature
crater that was shooting flames to a
great height.
Ingram, whose home address is 322
North Sherman street, Lincoln, was
burned on his face and suffered from the
gas. Bane was gassed while rescuing
his two companions. Both Ingram and
Bane were taken with Aderman to the
hospital where they are receiving treat-
ment. Their condition is not dangerous.
WORK ON SHOVEL CREW
The Lincoln men were employed with
the steam shovel crew at the mine, until
recently known as the Jones & Adams
and were temporarily residing in this
city. Their wives were notified of the
accident and came to their bedsides in
the afternoon. Aderman's home in Lin-
coln is at 1106 Sixth street.
Following the blast, the entire refuse
pile became a mass of flames and a
shovel outfit valued at $7,000 was com-
pletely destroyed.
The explosion was of peculiar origin
Foreman Bane, of the crew, stated that
he had never known of such an accident
before. The men were working on top
of the pile of shale and the shovel sank
into the smoking interior. There was a
puff of gas and flames arose, the action
resembling a volcano.
FEW MEN AT MINE
Rain and change of weather is sup-
posed to have caused combustion. The
dampness of the pile is believed to have
acted on the sulphur and other minerals
until when air reached the smouldering
mass it broke into fire.
Few men were at the mine at the time
of the accident, because no work under-
ground was scheduled for the day.

OBITUARY OF MR. HENRY ADERMANN
Henry Adermann, son of Mr. and Mrs. Ferdinand Adermann,
was born at Altamont on April 21, 1886 and died as a result of an ac-
cident which occured at a mine near Springfield on May 21, 1919, his
age being thirty three years and one month. He was helping to re-
move slack, when an explosion took place, causing him and two fellow
workmen to fall into the crater of a small volcano. His burns, severe
indeed, caused his death after several hours of agony.
He was married to Miss Lotta Cross and to this union two sons
and a daughter were born. In addition to the sorrowing wife and
children, Mr. Adermann leaves his parents, five sisters and four
brothers to mourn his sad and unexpected departure.
Mr. Adermann was confirmed in the church of his parents, the
Lutheran Church, when a young man and he was honest, indus-
trious citizen, a good husband and a loving father. His wife, children,
parents and brothers and sisters are in deep sorrow over his tragic
end. They need and have our sympathy.
Funeral services were conducted from the residence of the par-
ents on Friday afternoon last by Rev. W. H. Day, pastor of the Pres-
byterian Church. Burial was at Union Cemetery.
