William Deters. 735 Cedar street
and employed at the Uock Island ar
se nal. had a narrow escape from death
Sunday night in a gasoline explosion,
which resulted in the complete loss of
his launch named "Dainty." With
.--everal companions Mr. Deters had
spent the day down the river in fish
ing and hunting. At S o'clock they
returned and ran the launch into its
harbor in the slough near the plant of
the Davenport Malting company. Af
ter extinguishing the lights and lock
ing the door to the boat house in
which the launch was sheltered, the
party proceeded on their way home.
After having gone some distance Mr.
Deters recollected that he had left his
gun in the launch, and returned after
it alone. After unlocking the boat
house, and entering it. he struck a
match. A portion of the spark fiew
into the launch and immediately there
was a terrible explosion. Mr. Deters
was thrown into the water, but fortun
ately was nor injured. The launch was
completely wrecked and the disman
tled parts were afterwards burned to
the waters edge. Mr. Deters is of the
opinion that the gasoline must have
been leaking for some time in the
launch and that a considerable portion
had accumulated when it was ignited
by the piece of flying fire from the
match which was struck In the dark
ness. Although Mr. Deters suffers the
total loss of a valuable launch he con
siders himself exceedingly lucky that
he escaped with his life.

they "might have given her a mani

But here are over four hundred pres

There are caskets galore from Alia

officers who are guarding these pres
