haps fatally Injured from the results of
an explosion which took plate when the
former lighted a match to find a gas
leak on the second floor of the structure.
Both men were Informed bjr a guest of
the hostelry that the gnu was leak In.
They traced the smell to the end of a hall
la a bath room, and when Knox struck
a light the escaped vapor Ignited and
nearly all the windows on the second and
third floors were blown out. The de
tonation was heard and felt two block's
away. Quests were frightened and a
regular stampede resulted.
Knox, burned all over his body, rushed
to the street, closely followed by Vhlte.
There they collapsed and were taken a
few minutes later to Ft. Joseph's hospi
tal, where not much hope Is held out for
Knox. -
In the rush out of the building Mlae

and was ptlifullr. if not seriously, in

a room adjoining the bathroom, from
where the gas was escaping, was knocked
out of bed and suffered a severe scalp
Fortunately, most of the escaped gaa
seemed to have been exhausted with the
explosion, and the rush in of free air
through the buildings .ikely saved the
structure from a bad Mase,
Practically all of the plastering on the
two floors was peeled from the walls.

of Hit Fatherland.

Observes Neutrality ana
Employs a Servian.
To be still on the roll of reservist of
Austria, to be a naturalised clttzcin of
the United States to have been notified
now to report to the colors to fight for
the fatherland, is the predicament of
Albert Hruban, florist, and proprietor-of
the green house at Twenty-ninth and
Dorcas streets. Hruban is worried over
the situation, a lie say he hae refused
to report on the grounds that he is an
American citizen, and that In spite of this
he ha .heard that the government at
home is making life miserable for his
father there. This is said to be a means
aotne times employed to bring reservists
back to abuse the parent of the emi
grant reservist or to make life a burden
for some of his close relative at home.
Mr. Hruban came to America a number
of years ago, but was a reservist when
he came. Ho wa naturalized in America
am years ago and ha for many years
pursued hi dally task, secilre in the
sense that he was an Amerlcancltlsea
like those about him. ,

Then came the call from the Austrian
consul at Chicago. Hruban wa notified
to report to the colors. While he ha

HI striot neutrality in the whole Eu
ropean conflict 1 strikingly shown la
the fact that he ha in hi employ a hi
trusted man a helper who is a Servian
by birth. With the fatherland of both
these men at each other's throats these
many months, the Austrian and Servian
have worked side by aide, and the Aus
trian has paid his wages regularly to the
Servian. The Servian ha brother in the
Servian army fighting against Hruban'
fatherland, but that make no difference
to Ilrubsn. The Servian has Just received
a letter from his brother at the tr f t
saying he hss been wounded by a shrap
nel. The soldier tells of the terrible
explosion of shrapnel, stating that
soldiers nearest to the explosion had
their eyes actually thrown out of the
sockets by the concussion. In some cases
the surgeons were able to set the eyes
back In place and In others this wsa Im
possible, and sight was wholly lout.
Thieves Take Cash
from Woman as She
Appears on Scene
Mr. Sarah Mongol! n. 1811 North Twenty-first
street, beard a noise In the
kitchen of her home early Tuesday
morning and, grabbing her purse contain
ing $100, rushed toward the sound, two
men were quarreling over some Jewelry
which they had Just helped themselves
to in the other rooms. '
When Mrs. Mangolln appeared, they
took her purse from her, extracted the
$100, handed the empty article back to her
and left the house. Mrs. Mangolln ha
furnished the police with a good descrip
tion of the men.
In a tussel that ensued between Mrs.
Mangolln and the intruders, they threw
a lighted oil lamp against the wall and
set the room on fire. Several neighbors
answered the woman' call for help and
extinguished the blase.
Nearly Thousand
Gifts by Parcel

The number of Omahan who expected
certain Christmas gifts by mall and did
not get any, la certainly large, according
to Foreman Edward Hoag at the post
office. He says that since The Bee
published the fact than many package

were undellverable, because the addresa
tag or label had been lost, ha haa
been awamped with phone call from
people who wanted to know If such-and-such
a package Intended for them might
be tn the pile.
Nearly -1,000 such parcel are awaiting
the attention of the "Nixie" department,
which trie to find the consignee of pack

head of the department, aayg that many
of them will eventually be delivered to
