John C. Evans, of Kennewick, thie
Stale, accompanied by two friends
from the East, broke all Northwest
records for sprinting, on the sth insi.,
in an effort to get away from a dog
which was carrying a 6tick of dyna
mite with a lighted fuse astached.
Evans, wishingtoentertain his friends,
took them to a deep hole in the Co
lumbia to fish with dynamite. He
was accompanied by a fine bird-dog,
and when Evans lighted the fuse and
threw the stick into the water the dog
immediately jumped in after it. Evans
and bis friends yelled for the dug to
come back. This the dog did, but
with the explosive in his mouth. The
men ran about one hundred teet. The
dog ran after them. Then the ex
plosion came. The concussion threw
the three men to the grouud, jarred
them considerably and burned the
clothing on their backs. There was
nothing to mark the place where the
dog had been but one hind leg and a
hole in the ground.
