A BIG EXPLOSIO.
The Tool Box Used by Sewerage Con,
tractors Blown Up By Dyna
>The sount of an explosion Tues
day evening at eight o'clock caused
general consternation among those
who herd it. Nearby windows rat
tied and'some people got scared. It
was mystifying; there was only one
report, but it was loud and startling,
and coming at that hour inexplic
a'ble. All knew it was not from blast
ing, as work had ceased, and it did
not sound like blasting. The mystery
deepened,--and ibefore it was solved
there were all sorts of wild rumors
afloat. One snan told another that
that comet with the long tail had hit
the ground and made a hole large
enough to swallow the opera house;
whereupon the .other man answered
that he "knew the blamed thing
would play thunder." Some had it
that a man had been killed by the
explosion-blowa, to' atoms, etc., and
it is a wonder they didn't find his
legs at Prosperity and his arms at
In due course of time it 'as dis
covered that the explosion occurred
at the point where the hands are ar,
work on the sewerage extension, on
the old Phil Livingston place about a
mile and a quarter out. And people
went to the spot, just like they will
go to a dog fiht or fany old- thing.
Mr. D. A. Rivers, who runs the lead
ing conveyance on the Newberry hack
line, took a representative of The
Herald and News to the scene to re
port the thing. But, as the foreman
said, there was nothing much to re
port. The #reporter found a large
number of hands doing exeellent worc
and the sewerage system is progress
ing and it looks busy out there. As
to the explosion, it is still a mystery
that is the cause is unsolved. One
theory is that some one had thrown
a' lighted cigar or. cigarette stump in
the box; another is that it was the
work of an incendiary'" as it is said
a neighbor saw fire on the outside be
fore the explosion. There were about
eight sticks of dynamite in. the box
where the explosion occurred, and it
was the first time dynarDite.had been
pat in the box where the tools were
kept. It is of course known that dy
namite ,won't burn, so it must have
been jarred by some mneans, as it
could ,not have been from spontan
eous combustion.. At .any rate
there had been fire in the box, the dy
namite burst, tools scattered with
handles burnt off, and. a pick was
broken in two. Mr. J. Ti. Wardlaw,
resident enginer, had a fine engin
eer's transit and level in the box; his
instruments were ruined, and hie is
the heaviest loser.
