Lowell, Mass., July 30. —Without warning and in the twinkling of an eye probably upwards of a score of persons and possibly more were blown to death Wednesday forenoon by an explosion of the United States Cartridge Co.'s magazine on the banks of the Concord river, in South Lowell, three miles from the center of the city. The number of Injured is 30, although others were slightly cut by glass and burned. At two p. m., the list of dead stood at 15, with nine missing. Ten or a dozen wooden dwellings which stood In the vicinity of the pow der and dynamite storehouses were either demolished by the explosion or destroyed by fire and 20 other structures were more or less seriously damaged. The financial loss, exclusive of that sus tained by the cartridge company, Is roughly estimated at $40,000 only a small part of which is protected by Insurance. f'aae of Eiplanlan, The explosion was caused by work men who were employed about the storehouses for several days. The build ings owned by the company were two small brick structures, one used for storing dynamite and the other powder. So powerful was the large quantity of explosive in storage that the shock of the concussion was distinctly felt all over northeastern Massachusetts. The concussion was felt In Boston, 40 miles away, and at Exeter, N. H., which Is a greater distance from Lowell. At many points a score of miles distant window glass was shattered and other damage done. In some cases there were reports In circulation that there had been an earthquake. City In n Panic. The city was thrown Into a panic and It required every effort of the au thorities to establish and maintain any thing like order. It became necessary to summon four companies of the state militia. Alarming reports to the effect that over 100 persons had been killed and injured caused widespread confu sion. Relief Work Sion. Into the flames and debris scores of men were soon plunging In efforts to save life and property. The wreck was so complete, however, that the work was harrowingly slow. The wreck caused by the explosion covers an extent of three acres. Houses, barns and outbuildings lay in a ruined state, some half demolished, others hardly more than a heap of broken tim bers. still others smoking from the re cent fire. Mo More Heath*.

I.—A section of tbe bridge which spans the Willamette river at Morrison street collapsed shortly after three o’clock Friday afternoon, precipitating more than 100 people 40 feet into the water.

SOME DON’TS FOR SUMMER. Sapient Saxcettlon* Which May Help to Make I.lfe Tolerable la Hot Weather. Don’t you wink at the soda fountain man. Winks have gone out of fashion, says a wise contemporary. Don't hitch along on an open car. It is easier to let people climb over your knees. Don’t ask a fat man if this is hot enough for him. He’ll think there’s a joke in it somewhere. Don’t take it out on the Ice man. If it wasn't for him we’d have to cuss the coal man the year around. Don’t try to cool off on cocktails or warm up on ice-cold lemonade. There’s a philosophy about such things. Don’t Imagine that the fellow in the white duck suit is looking for a red-hot coal stove. He’s got the same feeling down his back that you have. Don’t get up arguments about ice cream. It may kill, but If it does our loss will be your gain. Don’t tell anybody that at this date last year, when you were up in the mountains, you had to sleep with three blankets over you. You are thought to be a liar as It is. Don’t talk politics, and feel under obligations to call someone a liar. Let him escape until the frosts come again. Don’t swear off on anything, and thus perturb your mind, and add another bur den. A good case of prickly heat Is enough for one person to lug around. Don’t imagine that you are the only rag on the line. The rest of us are in it with you, and feel just the same over it. and any little trust in icebergs will be promptly nipped in the bud and frozen out. UNCANNY MEXICAN PLANT. Said to Deprive Thn*e Who Com* Within It* Powerful Influence of Their Sen*e. The Institute Medico, of Mexico City, says the Mexican Herald, will send to the St. Louis w'ond’s fair an exhibit of about 50 medicinal plants of the coun try and the products derived there from. Accompanying the exhibit will be a complete explanation as to the place where the plants are found, the procedure for converting them into medical products and the elements which they are destined to cure. It grows wild and abundantly in the state of Mlchoacan. The Indians claim that whenever they enter a wood or place where the plant grows Its aroma makes them lose their way. and they are un able to return to their homes or reach their destination until they cease to smell the plant. The statement is said to have been fully confirmed a number of times by learned people. The In stitute Is goingto make a scientific study of its psychological effects, and an analy sis of its properties. A delegate has been sent to Mlchoacan to obtain a speci men of the plant. It has been further added that a person wearing a branch of this peculiar plant in his buttonhole will often be lost in his native city, but the latter statement has not been con firmed. This plant will bean interest ing exhibit at the fair, and if it Is sent In large quantities and keeps Us quali ties in foreign and distant lands, the po lice of St. Louis will have many visit ors to guide during the exposition. HAVE THE BIGGEST HEADS. Philadelphia Hatter Find* That Chl chko Meu Hen n I re the Large*! lleadaear. A hatter had just finished selling a hat to an irishman, reports the Phila delphl Record. “The Irish.” he said, “have heads of a graceful shape; long and oval, and very large. The American has a head shaped very much like the Irishman’s, only it is smaller and slightly rounder. “The German has a square head, flat on top, and very wide between the ears. A German’s hat always looks too big for him. It looks so because It Is so In order that he may encompass the head’s great breadth, it must be bought a little too loose In its other di mensions. Some Germans, who are particular, have their hats made to or der on this account. “I sell hats all over the United States, and I find that, heads run bigger In the west than anywhere else. The Chicago man has the biggest head in America. The southerner has the smallest. We easterners— Philadelphians, New York ers and Bostonians—all have heads about the same size. That size is, on the average 7. The westerner’s size is 714. The southerner’s is 6%.” Telephone In the !Nnr*ery. The telephone in the nursery has proved a real boon to anxious moth ers, Recently a loving grandmother, just promoted to the honors of the rela tionship, was awakened by her daugh ter’s alarmed voice, by telephone: “I’m sure baby has the croup; what shall I do?" Grandma promised to be with her daughter In a moment, and communi cated with the family doctor. He in turn requeste i to be put in connection with the anxious mamma, and bade her lift the child to the telephone so that he could hear It cough. The child coughed, and the doctor at once de clared the ailment to be of no conse quence and the disturbed family settled once more peacefully to rest. I.and lloltllnK Scheme In Scotland.
