! Explosion of Gas Stov$ Causes Se

and Arm Yesterday.
From Friday's Ially.
Yesterday afternoon William Bar-
. clav, state president cf the Eagles of
the state of Nebraska, met with a
very painful as well as serious ac
cident at his restaurant in this city.
The building is being overhauled
and repaired and during this time
there is more or less work with the
stoves in t ho kitchen of the restau
rant, which was one of the causes
of the accident of yesterday.
Mr. Rarclay was attempting to
light one of the gas stoves in the
kitchen and had made several at
tempts when suddenly on placing a
match to the burner, it exploded, a
large quantity of gas having accumu
lated, and in an instant the fames
had swept over the hand of Mr. Bar
clay, burning it very badly and in
fact the right arm clear to the elbow
was more or less burned and the
hair of the unfortunate man singed
by the spreading flames, but very
fortunately the fire did not reach his
! face.
The injured hand caused Uie most
intense suffering and I'r. H. P. West
over was hurriedly called to the res
taurant, where the injured hand wr.s
dressed and the patient mail15 as

jury would permit. Tiie burns we're

fice of Superintendent William Baird.
where they were given the glad hand
and on through the shops where the
workmen are busily engaged in the
work of completing and repairing
the cars and equipment of the rail
road. The visit proved a revelation to
some of the members of the party,
who had not before witnessed the
operation of the shops and the var
ious departments afforded them the
greatest of pleasure as they watched
the workmen turn out the different
jobs on which they were engaged.
The brass foundry, coach and paint
shop, machine shop and blacksmith
shop were the chief objects of in
terest, although they spent some time
in the steel car shop and the freight
car repair department where a large
part of the working force of the shop
is employed.
The day was one. however, that
was far from ideal for a visit of this
kind, as the hot sun beat down on
the shops without mercy and the
"Adders" were well heated up when
they returned to the city, but were
well pleased with the experiences oi
the day and the fact that they had
gotten in personal touch with the
shops and the men who are em
ployed there.
A visit to the railroad shops is a
revelation to anyone and certainly is
one that every business man and cit
izen not connected with the rail
road should make, as it places them
in close touch with the actual condi
tions there.
