Louis Collins Killed at Cotter.
From the Cotter Courier

Louis Collins, aged 35, an employee of Contractors Smith & Reynolds, met with an accident at 8 o’clock, which terminated in his death at 2:30 this afternoon. The unfortunate man was performing his duties on top of pier No. 11, when the mortar box suspended from the cable overhead fell, striking him on the head, and throwing him a distance of 40 feet into the water below. He was taken out in an unconscious condition and removed at once to his home at this place, where Drs. Hall, Morrow, and Cannaday performed an operation, with the hopes of saving the man’s life. Dr. Tipton of Mtn. Home was also summoned and all the doctors worked hard but to no avail. The dead man leaves a widow and four small children to mourn. His remains will be forwarded tomorrow to his former home at Gainesville, Mo., where interment will take place.
