Hellman Plymouth Wrecked: 0050.0129

BULL RIVER (From Our Own Correspondent)

            On Tuesday evening a big snow-slide came down across the Narrow Gauge road at a point about eight miles in front of the East Kootenay Power Co. dam, going right across the river and taking along a Plymouth sedan car belonging to Mr. O. Hellmen of Wardner, who had left it on the road whilst he was at work placer mining.  The car was completely demolished.  This is the first slide in that particular spot since the spring of 1919.
