Richard W.Jones of South Poultney was almost instantly killed last week
Monday morning at the Buckeye slate quarry, South Poultney, which is
owned by him. Several men, superintended by Jones, were drilling an
overhanging ledge of rock preparatory to blasting, when the rock
suddenly broke off, falling upon Mr.Jones, who was sitting at the time.
The other men were able to get out of the way.
