CHICAGO, July 13. Three men were
blown to pieces, three others were fatally
Injured and aeveral othera badly hurt by
an explosion which early today wrecked
a shanty In the McLaughlin stona quarry
at Ballwood, a short distance northwest
There are evidences that the explosion
waa the reault of a plot on the part of
people who are at present unknown to the
police. The dynamite shed of the quarry,
which Is at a considerable distance from
the shanty which was blown up, was
broken open and the dynamite carried to
the building ln which a number of laborora
were sleeping and exploded beneath the
structure. The aurvlvors all declare that
there waa no dynamite around their shanty
when they retired for the night.
The explosion was terrific and aroused
the residents for several miles around and
shattered many panes of glais a mile from
the quarries. The larger part of the body
of one of the men killed Waa taken from
a tree 100 feet from the place where the
ahanty had stood. Sections of the corpse
were found lying all around the tree. All
of the men killed and Injured were Greek
and Italian laborers.
The offlciala of the McLaughlin com
pany denounced the blowing up of the
ahanty aa deliberate murder and aald that
ln their opinion the crime had been
actuated by a dealra to rob the sleeping
men. Several of them were known to
have considerable money, and one, Louie
Papplllo, was aald to have carried 21.000
In a belt which he wore around one leg.
Papplllo and his brother were killed,
and when the bodies were found both had
been completely stripped of clothing. Thla
wx uct tne case with any other man who
t-aa In the iliantv at the time of the ex-
r ioalon, and, a. cording to the officials of
I the McLaughlin company, bears out their
theory that r: .' erj waa the motive of
j he crime.

formation thai j-d trem to believe that the
djr.xnUe m)(ik.t have been placed under
the tu.. ;jf at the Instance of a woman
who was jealous of one of the men killed.

PRAYED AND HIT HUSBAND
Woman's Long; Supplication Finally
Rewarded la a Novel ,
Eighteen yeara of prayer and aupplicatlon
Anally won for Miss Maria Jeeaop of Chi
cago a husband, but it took the strength
of her good right arm, the total wreck of
an Image and the severe wounding of R. F.
Costomlno, an Italian, to bring about the
Maria la a woman of some 88 summers.
It la the custom of her country not only
to marry, but to marry young. When, at
the age of 28 yeara, Maria found heraelf
still in tha enjoyment of simple blessedness,
she considered that she was on the wait
ing Hat, and thought In all probability aha
would remain there unless she took Im
mediate stepa to remedy the situation.
She purchased a plaater of parla Image' of
a aalnt and aet It up ln her apartment.
Dally, In the morning and again In the
evening, did she make obedience to the
graven likeness for fifteen yeara and waa
still a spinster.
Maria cast about her for the cause f the
distressing state of affairs. She gaxed Into
the mirror and found that despite the flight
of time she was atlll fair to gaze upon. In
the atreeta were many men who were doubt
loaa alngle and probably ellglblo. The bust
met her gaze. She waa angry at tha Image
because It had not brought her a husband.
She grasped It In her hand and hurled It
through the window. There was a crash of
broken glass, a sickening thud, a groan, the
sound of plaster of parts breaking upon
the atone and all waa atlll.
Maria rushed to the window and looked
our. In the court at the rear of her home
a small crowd waa collecting shout the
prostrate form of a man. Persons were
hurrying for a doctor. Small boya were
liberally helping themeelvea to vegetables
ln the cart of the wounded man. Frag
ments of the Image lying In the vicinity
told tha tale.
Then the wounded man alowly opened
hla eyea and his gaze met that of Maria
Jessop. It was all over In a minute he
loved her, though she had hurled the mis
sile that laid him low.
Costomlno, tha fruit dealer, did not die.
He waa nursed back to life by the hand
that wounded him. Yesterday he was able
to sit up, and notice thinga, and the first
thing he noticed waa Maria. A license
was procured and they were wed. They
left for Detroit, where they will live. Chi
