The explosion of the carboy of sulphur
ic aeid at the oil house was attended
with more serious results than weic first
expected. This carboy is a large glass
Teasel of thirteen gallons, and was en
cased with a wooden box for shipment,
and had been exposed to the hot sun for
some time, and the moment the case was
lifted from around it by John Corey and
old Mr. Brantner, who take care of the
oil house, the explosion occured, throw
ing the acid upon both men, and burning
Brantner on the arms quite badly, and
to lay he has them in bandages. Besides
the burns on the arms he suffered a slight
burn on the chest and side. Mr. Corey

The other day one hundred and fifty
passenger had a very narrow escape in
the Niagara rirer, the litter steamer that
carries passengers across that river had
to cross below Green Island instead of
above it on account of low water. When
, it was amid stream, at the nearest point
o the cataract, the engine suddenly
gave out," and the boat started down
Stream. An anchor was hastily thrown
out, but the vessel had such a headway
that it dragged quite a distance, Finally
when it caught in the rocks the jerk
smashed the bulkhead to which the
chain was attached, and the steamer
went on. Fortunately the chain twisted
80 that it caught ia the bnllwarks and
stopped the boat. Then they fixed the
engine and got up steam and after a
struggle of fifteen minutes with the rapids
accumulated headway enough to over
come the current, and safely landed. The
passengers were all scared out of a year's
growth at least. And well they might
be, for it was a close shave. There was
but a hair's breadth between them and
