The attendance at the Industral fair

portant improvements have been made in
the displays so that the fair now presents
a finer appearance than ever.
A very entertaining programme was
presented last evening which was opened

A Lag Iriven Through a llon.e and
Other Deatrurtion ltone.
There was another destructive blast on
Fourth avenue this morning caused by the
efforts to dig a trench through the rock
bed underlying the avenue for the laying
of the gas mains by Davis & Co. The
blast alluded to occurred just west of
Twenty-third street and in front of the
house owned by Mrs. Elizabeth Bender,
No. 2216, and occupied by her family and
also by J. B. Lidders and family. The
blast had evidently been too heavily
charged, and the logs laid to check the
force of the explosion were blown in all
directions, one of them with such force
as to break down a portion of the iron
fence in front and the wooden fence at
the side and also to tear up part ef the
walk and steps, while one log was driven
right through the side boarding of Mrs.
Bender's house and into the front room,
leaving a large whole behind it. Happily,
though, so injuries attended the acci
dent. Received the Appointment.

nothing but novelties received direct
from factories, at prices as low and lower
than their would be coxpetitors charge

do not bind themselves to take car lots
or exclusive sales. They buy from dif

styles and better goods. When a firm
binds themselves to take car lots or ex

factories turn out, viz: woods that resem
