Harry Dickerson Resigns.
Harry S. Dickerson, for the past several years forest ranger on the Eagle station of the Holy Cross National Forest, has resigned that position to go into business in Eagle.
Mr. Dickerson has been one of the Forest Service's most efficient officials and has proven very popular with those whom he came in contact in the performance of his duties. The Service loses a very valuable man in his retirement. The resignation was tendered and accepted some time ago, to take effect January 1. His successor has not been selected as yet.
Mr. Dickerson has formed a partnership with Thos. E. Pharo in the automobile and garage business in Eagle, having bot [sic] a half interest in the Eagle garage of which Mr. Pharo is now owner. Both partners are very competent and popular young men, and we predict success for the firm of Pharo & Dickerson.

A Denver & Rio Grande Locomotive Explodes at Minturn, Killing Two Men -- Others Injured.
A Terrible Accident
The force of the explosion was sideways and owing to this no damage was done to the second engine or the passenger coaches. Had the force of the explosion been backward it might have caused the death of a large number of passengers as well as the crew of the second engine. The force of the explosion threw the boiler several hundred feet, demolished the cab, and the bodies of the two men were found several hundred yards from the wrick. While the body of Engineer Draper was literally torn to pieces Fireman Elliott had been thrown bodily out of the engine and struck a rock with his head which would have resulted in death had not the force of the concussion killed him.
The bodies were picked up and placed on No. 2 and taken to Salida by Conductor Fifield. The crew of the second engine, Engineer J.D. Julius and Fireman George Smith, were not injured beyond a few slight scratches. They took the train to the top of the hill.
The remains of both Draper and Elliott were placed in the morgue at Salida from which place they were shipped [enst?] Monday. Mrs. Draper with her four year old daughter and Tony Gamble accompanied the remains of Mr. Draper to his old home in Illinois where he will be buried. [see obit of C.E. Draper]
