Three, Killed by
Bomb Explosion in
New York Tenement
NBW YORK. July 4.-A bomb of ter
rific power exploded either on tho roof
or on one of the upper floors of a six
story flat house in Harlam today,
wrecked a third of the building, killed at
least three persona and injured others.
One of the dead was Arthur Caron, a
machinist and a leader of the Industrial
Workers of the World. The two other
known dead were women. The explosion
was at first attributed to dynamiting in
a nearby subway excavation and it the
sxoltement attendant on the collapse of
the building estimates of the dead ran as
high as fifty. Inspector Egon of the po
lice bureau of combustibles sold the bomb
was powerful enough to have wrecked
the entire neighborhood If properly paced.
Persons across the street were blown
from their beds and window glass was
shattered for blocks.
Whether any Of the occuoahts of the
building were burled In the ruins It was
at first impossible to determine. The
ponce were inclined to believe, however,
that three would cover the total dead.
The building, a brick structure, was In
habited almost exclusively by Jewish
Caron'ej body was Identified by means
of cards in his pocket He lived In the
building where the explosion occurred.
Caron had been nmmln.nllv MontlfU
with the Industrial Workers of the World
and was arrested during one of the Union
square demonstrations. The police began
lookliur Ut his record today on tha theory
that It might aid In clearing up the ex

POISONOUS SNAKES OF INDIA
Toll of Twenty-Two Thousand Lives
a Year Taken by Vipers of
At the snnke cage out In tho soo thcro
are always to bo found Interested specta
tors, but seldom Is thcro such a well In
formed visitor as tho one who stood be
fore the enclosure lost week. He was a
man who had live In the East Indlos
and was full of Interesting stories
about the dreaded, poisonous snakes of
that oriental land.
To the question as to whether the
cobra, which dragged Its length lastly
over the cage, was not India's worst
reptile, the man said:
"Somehow the cobra has become so
Identified with India that persons are
apt to forget wo have still other poi
sonous species worth mentioning. In
fact, no sooner do you mention India
than one of the first pictures awak
ened In the mind of the listener Is that
of the whlte-turbaned snako charmer
and his hooded cobra. We have so many
other poisonous species of snakes that
of the K.000 deaths that annually oc
cur throughout India owing to snake
poison only two-fifths are due to the
bites of cobra.
"The Indian snake responsible for more
deaths than any other kind,. Is the short.
thick, dusky, white-ringed karlat, yet
possibly you never even heard its name.
The poison of the karlat Is not more
deadly than that of the cobra; In fact,
the contrary Is tho case, but the viper
Is moro plentiful than the' king of all
snakes, and his habits bring him Into
the bungalows of the natives, where he
llvos laiy and sluggish, too lethargic to
get out of the way of Impending danger,
as the cobra will when given the chance,
and Infinitely more wilting to strike than
his famous brother snake.
"Wherever there is a human habita
tion the karlat Is apt to follow. Ho likes
to climb to tho roof beams of bunga
lows, there to nestle under the warm
thatch. At night he Is apt to fall to
the floor or on your bed, and the first
time he Is irritated he strikes deep. In
jecting poison of about the same virul
ence as that of your American king of
snakes, the rattler. If you live in the
valley of the Doom, where this snake is
particularly plentiful, every precaution
must be taken to examine the bungalow.
The snake likes to curl on the tops of
window sashes, nestle behind wash
stands, behind trunks, boxes or barrels
and even Inside unused bureau drawers.
"If a karlat bites you and you are of
strong constitution, you have about the
same chance of escaping death as if a
rattlesnake had sunk Its fangs Into you.
Hut unless prompt surgical old is at
hand the karlat bite is as sure to be as
fatal as It Is almost Invariably In the
cases of the lean, puny natives-
"Besides the karlat we have the dabola
and the echls, a pair of vipers that an
hually work tremendous havoc among
tho unfortunate natives. Think what It
means 22,000 deaths owing to snake
venom, sixty persons a day, or one life
In less than twenty-five minutes and
this continues year In and year out.
"Contrary to general belief, the cobra
is slow to attack. Given warning unless
It be at breeding time, when there Is a
nest to defend and a cobra will glide
out of the way of trouble In most cases.
Tho reptile seems no more anxious to
cause trouble than she Is to invite It for
herself. A fact that bears this out is
the proportionately small number ot
whites who are bitten by cobras. Tho
reason Is not that the white persons wear
shoes that would offer much ot a pro
tection to the poison fangs of one of
these snakes a fang would penetrate
leather as readily as It would bare skin.
But the, allocs creak and the snake
has warning to dart away. Natives, how
ever, wear no shoes. They walk noise
lessly. A cobra has no warning of
Impending Interference until suddenly It
sees a dusk foot or an ankle placed
within striking distance. Then the snake
strikes", holding fast to the bitten part
for a half minute or more so as to give
tho' poison a chance to circulate deep
Into the flesh and through the system.

One man was electrocuted and another
