PAINFUL "ACCIDENT.
Dr. P. T. Geyerman is confined to
his home and is suffering a great
deal of pain from some bad burns
which he received yesterday after­
noon. Immediately after dinner he
lighted an oil stove in the bathroom
at the Geyerman residence and then
went into his bed room for a mo­
ment. While he was gone the stove
exploded and in a moment tbe room
was filled with flames and smoke.
The doctor hurried to the room and
seizing the stove started to carry it
down stairs and out of doors. This
he succeeded in doing, tho his hands
were frightfully burned. The flames
scorched his face, neck and chest
in terrible shape, but the fire was
put out and tbe house saved. F. R.
•Geyerman, who came to the doctor's
assistance, was also badly scorched,
but his injuries are not serious.
The damage to the house and furni­
ture is damaged to the extent of
$100. The accident is a most distres­
sing one under any circumstances
but coming at a time when so many
people are ill and need the doctor's
assistance, makes it doubly bad. It
certainly requires a superior quality
of nervw for a man to go into amass
of flames and carry a red hot stove
from the building, while every mo­
ment is one of agony and we be
live that the doctor is richly entit'ed

A Somervllle genealogist received
recently a letter from a lady who
wants .to join the Colonial Dames. It
began: "I write to ask your asslsfc
•nee In looking up my posterity."
Some time ago he received a letter
from a lady out West, who wrote
that she had been Informed that she
was descended "from Sir Walter
Raleigh, who eame over In the Mayw.
flower," and asked -him to trace the
complete line of descent.—Somervllle
(Mass.) Journal.
An Eloquent Defense.
Col. Moriarity was defending the
climate of India. "All nonsense," he
says "there's no better climate in
the world. But there are a lot of
yoniig fellows who come out to India,
and they eat and they drink, and they
drink and they eat, and they die, and
then they write home to their friends
and tell them that the. climate has
killed them. Of course, lots of p?o*
pie die in India. Tell me where
they don't and I'll go and end mjr
Says there."
