PERILS OF GASOLINE.

Look Out For Trouble.
Fatalities on account of gasoline (ires
are on the increase, which leads the

"A feature, however, which is not

if one puts a few drops of gasoline in
a small tightly inclosed pail, waits a
few minutes and then introduces a
flame or an electri spark a violent ex

as it comes from the gasoline and
