fuse had gone out. One of the number
attacked the blast with a pick with the
result that the powder exploded with
considerable violence, scattering small
rocks and stones in all directions and
throwing the f.'ur laborers to the
ground. The three who were injured
the most were struck about the face
and neck by a number of small stones,
and these were removed to the hospi

fourth, who. less injured than his com
