Someone Makes a Miscue at the
Electric Power House, Caus
ing Alarm to Be Turned In.
The burning out of a fuse in
one of the switchboards at the
electric light power house last
evening1 about 8 o'clock occasion
ed a great deal of excitement
around the power house for some
little time. The fuse burnirfg
out allowed the service to be
interferred with to some extent
and the current arched over t lie
burnt fuse in a manner that
greatly alarmed the man working
at the plant, who proceeded to
throw a bucket of water on the
board, with the result that the
trouble was considerably in
creased and the switch board was
ignited from Hie electric current.
The fire alarm was turned in, but
there was not really anything
that the lire department could do
to check the flames with water,
and they were put out by turning
oft" the current for a few minutes.
In the excitement Superintend
ent Sweezey received a very
severe burn across the back of
his left hanl as he was trying lo
place a new fuse in the switch
board and at the same time not
interfere with the service to the
city. As he was working with a
wrench on the plug the wrench
slipped and the fop of his hand,
"as well as two fingers," were bad
ly burned and he was compelled
to hasten lo the city to have the
injuries dressed and made as
comfortable as possible.
The wholo matter might have
Leon a very serious one, and al
though it occasioned a little
trouble to the users of the elec
tric current, still they feel that .it
was fortunate it was no worse.
Mr." Sweezey is carrying his hand
around in a bandage today and
thinks there will be no perman
ent injury to the hand, although
the first finger of the left hand is
burned in bad shape.

some people qven neglect to at

always advise, our friends to
take good care of themselves. If
they should not have the proper
appetite or if their strength
should diminisli, they should at
once use Triner's American

great remedy will clean out their

expected relief. At drug stores.
