FATAL SNOWSLIDE

On February 13th, a snowslide demolished the Edwards cabin about 7 miles up Monumental creek from Roosevelt.  Avery Henderson, a well known mining man of that camp was first thought to be buried in the cabin.  The cabin was shoveled out by the men of the camp and he was not found.  His shoes were there, but a pair of trousers and a coat were missing said Edwards, who was batching with Henderson.  Tracks in the snow were followed by the light of candles for about one-half mile until they were obliterated by another snowslide.  They were unable to find any trace of him after three hours of searching.

It is almost certain that Henderson had a visitor and to date neither of the bodies have been found at the snow slide known as the Henderson Slide.
