An explosion followed which destroyed property valued at $75,000. One person killed and four fatally injured. The dead and injured are: Miss Carrie Aherenworth, killed ih stantly. John Guhl, tenmster for the Oriental Powder Company, ribs fractured; right leg broken in two places; internal wour.cis. Mrs. Gunl, skull crushed. Mrs. Eliza Devine, right leg crushed to si jelly; breast transfixed by a strip of glass. Besides the one liead, and four who can not survive, the following is a partial list of those who are knowa to be serious ly Injured : Peter lenn, twenty-eight years old; gardener. James Shannon, sixteen years oldt par ents reside on Joseph street and Pearson avenue. Two Kelly brothers, fourteen and six teen years old respectively; parents re side on Western avenue, near Thirty sixth street. Miidden, a small hoy, whose parents re side on Thirty -eighth street, near Tear son avenue. Philip Bowler, cabinet-maker, 722 South Union street, arm crushed by flying stone, and amputated. John Lordey, Jr., seventeen years old, of ICS Ctvutilpoi't avenue; Ies badly crushed.. John Jung, fifty-two years old, girdeu er; resides south of Archer road. Mrs. Jung, forty-six years old, wife of the former. Miss Kennedy, eighteen years old; par ents reside on Johnson street, a quarter of a mile from the scene. The shock caved i:i the two magazines of the Oriental Powder Company, an I also those belonging to the Warren Com pany, the Hazard, the Dupont companies and the Forcite dynamite storehouse. The Lafiin & Rmd Company's was the only one which exploded. Where it stood is now an immense excavation nearly fifty feet in depth. The combined efforts of a hard-fought battle, a cyclone and the withering in fluence of lightning could not have pre sented a picture of more .abject desola tion and destruction than did the country for half a mile in all directions from the exploded magazine. The day had open ed gloomily. At eight o'clock rain be gnn falling furiously freim immense brinks o! clouds. Flashes of lightning were seen chasing each other across the entire firmament, until the heavens seemed ablaze. The thunder Mas deafening. About a quarter past nine a fl.isli, which all agree was much brighter than those which preceded it, was followed by a report that shook the greater part of Cook County. It was a sharp rcpoit, but, strange to say, by most of lho-e who lived in the vicinity of the explosion it was hardly distinguishable from the series of thunder-claps which had been the order of the morning. All agree that there was a tremendous shak ing of the earth. Articles of furniture not stationary were thrown about as if they were playthings in a eian''s power. Men, women and children were tossed around at the will of the teruhle, resist less force released by the explosion. The scene of the catastrophe is about two miles irom the extreme southwest- el n edge of the city, near where Archer avenue settles down into a conventional country highway. On one side were live great fields of ripening corn. On the other a broad stretch of prairie .runs lor nearly a mile in all directions. On th s aie, or rather were, a dozen plain, but sUongiy-buiit houses, with walls of yel low brick, roofs of slate and strong iron clours, used as magazines. The lorce of the explosion traA'cled across the cily in a northerly and easterly direction nnd left a trail about three quarters of a mile wide. The shock was distinctly felt in all parts of the city, and many people were greatly frightened. The explosion played sad havoc at the Bridewell. The f can ale prisoners were terribly frightened, but none were injured. Mrs. Armour, one of the matrons, was in the upper hall in the rear part of the building. She was prostrated by the nervous shock, anel will neit be able to attend to duty for several days. The ceiling in the upper floor of the main building was cracked through from east to west in a straight line, and patches of the plastering fell in all parts of the building. The gieatest damage was elone le the ceiiMig in the main hall, w hich was nearly all torn down. Several doors in the building were blown from their hinges, ami about two hundred panes of glass were broken. At McCormiek's works about two hun dred panes of glass on the river stele of the building were broken, the building was shaken, and doors were blown from their hinges. The Board of Trade building, althou seven miles from the scene of the ex plosion, was greatly affected by the dis turbed condition of the atmosphere. The main hall on the second floor is l'ghted by three sheets of plate glass, each about twelve icet square. The upper ::nel lower of these sheets were shattered, none of the fragments being larger than a fifty-cent piece. The man who cleans the elect ric-light lamps was in the tower, which is 350 feet high, doing this work when the explosion oc curred. He states that the tower swayed in a way that led him lo fear that the structure would topple over. The shock of the explosion was distinctly fell tit the Palmer House and caused a sud den extinguishment of all the lights in the barrier shop. The substantial hotel was shaken from the roof to the foundation. The same may be s.aid of the Grand Pa cific Hotel. In the Union building, in which are located the general offices of the Associated Press, many windows were broken. Hie Haddock SInrder Inquest Concluded, .Sroi x City, Ia., Ann. 20. The cor aner's jury that was called August 4 t investigate the murder of Rev. George C. Haddock concluded its labors last night anel adjourned.

The pier at the foot of Clarkson street was crowded with friends and well-known actors and actresses. For two hours before the ship sailed the two artists received their many friends, who crowd ed around wishing thetn bon voyage. Among other passengers on the Umbriu were John W.

The tare of Ilutli Tor Naomi Five Indi3 pensables Which, the Fait hful Chris tian Mast Possess in Order to Uve and Die Kijflit. Rev. T. DeAVitt Talmage, in a recent visit to tho historic old camp-meeting at Grimsby, Out., preached a sermon, taking for hi., subject tho bo ultiful story ot Ruth and Naomi, His text was: Entreat me not to leave thee, or to return from following after thee; for whither thou Eroest, I will go; and where thoil lodgest, I will lodge; thy people shall be my people, nn.i thy GoJ my Goet; where thou eliest will I die, and there will I be builDd; the Lord efe so to me, and more iilso. if aughc but death part thee and me.- itutti 1.. l'M7. Following is Dr. Talmage's sermon! Famine in Julah. Upon fields eiisliu guisheel for fertility tho (light came, and at the door of princely abodes want knocked. Turning bis back upon 1 is house and his lands Elimelech took bis wife Naomi and his two sous and started for the land of Moab, in search of bread. Getting- into Moab his two sons married idolators Ruth the) nanio of one, Orpah tiro name of tho other; Great calamities came upon that household. Elimelech died nn.l bis two sons, leaving Naomi, the wife, onel tho two elaughters-iu-law. Poor Naomi! In a strange land and her husband anel two sons rlead. Sho must go beck to Judab. She can not stand it in a place iv hero everj-thing- reminded her cf her sorrow. Just as now, gometlines you s. e persons moving from ono houso to anoth er, or from one city to anoth er, and you can not understand it until you find cut that ft is because there ere associations with a cer tain place that ihey could no longer bear. NaomLuust start for tho land of Judah; I ut how shall she get there? Between Moab cnel the placo where sho would like to go, there aro deserts; there are wild Leasts ranging the wiblerne is; there are savages going up and elown, and there is the awful Deael sea. Well, you say, sho caiua over the road once, she can do so again. Ah ! when she came over the road before sho had tho strong arms of her hus band and her two sons to defend her. Now they are all gone. Tbe heur of parting has conio, and Naomi must be separated from her two daughters-in-law, Ruth and Orpah. They wero tenderly attached, these threo mourners. They had bent over the same sick bed; they had moved in the same funeral profession; the y bad wept over t; e same grave. There the three mourners otand talking. Naomi thinks of the time when she bjl't Judah with a prince for her companion. Then they all think of the marriage festivities, when Naomi's two sens wero united te these w omen, who havo now exchanged tho wreath of tho bride for the veil of the mourner. Naomi starts for iho land of Judah, an 1 Ruth and Or pah rese.lvo to go a little way along with her. Thoy have gone but a short elis tance when Naomi turns aiounl and says to her daughters-in-law: "Go back. There may be days of brightness yet for you in your native land. I can't bear to take you away from your home and tho homes of your kindred. I am old anel troubled. Go ne t along with IH9. Tho Lord deal gently with you as ye havo elealt with the dead and with me." But they persisted iu geiing, and so the three traveled on until after awhilo Naomi turns arouuel again and begs them to go beck. Orpah takes tire suggestion, and after, a sad parting goes away; but Ruth, grand ami glorious Ruth, turns her back upon her home. Sii says: "I can't bear to let that old mother go f.lone. It is my duty to go with her." And throwing her arms around w eeping Naomi sho pours out her soul in (ha tenderness, and pathos, au I Chrulian eloquence of my text: Entreat me not to leave thee, or to return from following after i hee ; for whither ttioa ft or t, I will. go; and where thou lo-l ijst, 1 will lodge ; thy people shall be my people, and thy Go;l my God; where thou diest w II I elie, and there will I be bin ie t ; the b rd d so t me, and more also, if aujlit but death part thee and me. Fivo choices Ruth made in that text, nnd fiva choices must we all maki if we ever want to get to heaven. I. Iu tho first place, if wo want to be come Christians we must, like Ruth in the text, choose the Christ ian'.s God. Bounti ful Ruth looked up into ths wrinkled lace of Naomi, and sai 1: Thy do 1 shall bo my Cod. Veil see, it was a change ct Cods. Noami's G- d was Jehovah; Ruth's god was Chemosh, the divinity of tho efoab itee, whom she had worshiped under the symbol eif a black star. Neiw sho counts out from under that bloek-starred divin ity, anel takes tho Lord in whom there is ir darkness at oil; tho silver-starred divinity to whom tho meteor pourc 1 down pi Bethlelem ; tho sunshiny god of whom the Psalmist wrote: The Bora God Is a stm. And so, my friends, if wo want to be come Christians we must change grjds. This worl 1 is the Chiinei? h to m st people. It is a black-starred god. It can heal in wounds. It can wipe' away no sorrows. It can pay no ilebt3. It can save no un dying soul. It is a greater cheat, so many f.housand miles in diameter and so nt my thousand mdes in circumference. If I should put this au lionco under oath, one lalf of them would swear that this woi Id Is a liar. It is a bank which makes large advertisements of wbatithas Li the vaults and of tho dividends that it decb res, ami teils us that if we want happiness, all v,-t Save got tei do is to comi to that bank and ipply for it. In tho hour of need we go to that l ank to get happiness, oriel we find that the vaults are empty, (ml all relia I iiitiea have absconded and we ore swindled out of every I king. O thou 1 lack starred Chemosh, how many are burning incense at thy shrine! Now Kuth turned away from this (rod Chemosh and she took Naomi's God. Who wm that? The God that made the world md put you in if.. The God that fashioned t.ho Heaven and filled it with blissful in 'ifibitants. The God whose iife-i lrne study t has been to make you anel all bis crea tures happy. The. Goel who watched us in ihildbood. and led us through the gaunt let of infantil-j distresses, feeding us when we were hungry, pillowing r.s when we were somnolent, and sending His only sou to wash away onr pollution with the te ars and blood of lUu ow n eye and liefcrt, and e ITei ing to bo our everlasting rest, comfort onel ecstacy. A loving God. A sympa thetic God. A great-hearted God. An nil riicornpassing Goel. A Go 1 who filngi himself on this woild in a very a baud jU nrent of everlast ing affection. The clou Is, the veil of his face. The sea, tbe aquarium ui his palace. The stars, tho l.-vv-elrops on His lawn. The God of Hannah's prayer, an I Kstber's consweratioii ari l Mary's broken heart, and Ruth's loving and bereft fpirit. O chooso ye between Chemosh and Jehovah! The one service is pain and disapjw.in I ninf ; t.i ! h r service is brightness and life. I have tried both. 1 elioesc tho service of God t o- cii; i fS9 csbataoil tq do oifarwis.. I j feb; it would be imbecile for me to chooso Chemosh above Jehovah. O happy day that fixed my choice On thee, my Saviour and my God! AA'ell may this glowing heart rejoice. And teli its raptures all abroad. O happy baud tlint seals my vowa To lliin who merits all my love! Let cheerful anthems fill His house-. While to His sacred throne I move. High Heaven, tnat heard the solemn vow, That vow renewed shall daily hear; Till la life's latest hour 1 bow, Anel bless in death a bond so dear. 2. Again, if wo want to be Christ iaus, like Ruth in the text, we must take the Christian's path: Where thou tfoest, 1 w-,n crieel out the beautiful Monbitess.to Naomi, the motlioi'-in-law. Dangerous promise that. There were tleserls to ba croisetl. There! were jackals that c mo elown through the, wilderness. Ihero were ban dits. There was tho Dead frea. Naomi save: "Ruth, you must go back. Tou are too delicate to take this journey. You will give out 111 the first fiva mile;. You can not go. Ycu havo not the physical stam ina or tho moral courage to go with me." Ruth rer ponds: "Mother, I nm going anyhow. If I stay in this land I will bo overborne of tho Delators; if I go along with you 1 shall so: ro God. Give me that bundle. Let me carry it. I am going with you mother, anyhow." And if we want to serve God, wo must do as Ruth did, crying out: Where thou goest, I w i'l go. Never min i the Be el Sea. Afoot or horseback. If there be rivers to ford, wo must ford them. If ther be mountains to scale, w o must scalo them. It there be enemies to fight, wo must fight them. It requires grit and pluck to get fro--n Moab to Judah. Oh, how many Christians there are who can be eliverted from the path by a quiver of the lip, indicative ot scorn? They do not surrender to tempta tion, but they betid to it. And if in a company there 1 e those who toll unclean stories they will go so far as to lell some thing on the m rgin between the pure and the impure. And if there bo those who sw ear in the room and use tho rough worel "elamn," they will go so far as the word "darn," and look over the fence, wishing they couhl go farther; but as to any de termination liko Ruth's to go tho whole road of all Hint is light, they havo not the grace to do it. They have not in all their body as much courage as Bath had ni her little linger. Oh, my friends, let us start for Heaven and go clear through! In the river that run." by the gate cf the city we shall wash 11T all our bruiben. YThen Dr. Chalmers printed his astronomical discouises, they were were read in the haylofts, in the fields, in tho garrets an 1 iu the palaces, because they advocated tho idea t tat the stais wero inhabited. O, hearer, does not your soul thrill with the thought tint there is another world beautifully inhabited' Nay, more, that you by tho graco of Goel may become one of its glorious citizens? Again I remark: If wo want to bo come Christains, lik Ruth in tho text, we must chex'SO tho Christian's habitation. A' here thou lodgest, will I ledge, cried ru'h to Naomi. fcUio knew that wherever Naomi stopped, whether it wero hovel or mansion, there would 1 e a Ci l is fian home, and sho wanted to I o i.i it. AVhat do I mean by a Christian home? 1 mean a home in which the Biblo is the chief book; a homo in which the family kneel in prayers; a homo in which father and mother aro practical Christian; a homo in which on Sabbath, from sunrise tc sunset, there is profitable converse, and cheerful song, and suggestions of u better world. AVhethor tbe wall 1 o frescoed or not, or only a ceiling of unpinned rafters; whether the marble lions bo couchirnt at tho front entrain o, or a plain latch is lifted by a tow-s!ring that homo is ihe anto-uhanrber of Heaven. A man never gets over having lived in such tin early home. It hclds you in an eternal grip. Though your parents may have been g. no forty years, tho tears eif penitence and gladness that were wept at tiro family altar still glitter in your memory. Nay, elo you not now fee! warm and be t on your hands the tears which that mother shed thirty years ago, vh-n, ono cold winter night, she came and wrapped you up in the beel mi l prayed for your welfare here and for y our everlasting welfare before t he throne? O, yo who are to set up your own hemic, see that it be a Christian home! Let Jesus make the wine at that wedding. A homo without God is an awful place, there nre so many perils to threaten it, and God himself is so bit 1 01 ly ng rinst it; but The Lord cicnmpetli around a!. out the habitation of the; just. AVh.it a grand thing it is to havo God stand guard at that door, and tho Lord Jesus the family physician; and tho w ings of angels the canopy over the pillow, Mil tho Lord of Glory a perpetual f u est. You say it is important that the wifo and tho mother b" a Christian. I soy to you it is just us important that the husband and father bo a Christian. Yet how many clever men ther o are who say: "My wifo eloes oil the religion of rnv house. I am a worl Uy man, but I have c nfidenc in her, and Ifcfhink she will bring tho whole lainily up all right." It will not elo, mv brothor. Toe fnet that you sre not a Christian has more in fluence on jour family than the fact that your wife is a Christian. Your childien will say: "Father's a very good man; he is not a Christian, nnd if be can risk the fnlur e, I can risk the future." O father and husband! join your wifo on the road to Heaven, and at night gath er your family nt tho altar. 1) you say: "I can't pray. I am a man rf few words and I don't think I couM put half a dozen sentences together in such a prayer?" You can pray; you can. If your child were elown with' scarlet fever, and the next hour were to docide its recovery or its death, ycu would pray in sobs, and greians nnd paroxysms of carnestneHs. Yes, you can pray. AVhen tlio eternal life of your household may depend upon ye ur supplication, let your knee limbo and go elown ; but if you still insist thr.it ycu can not compose a prayer, then buy r I on ow a prayer-book ef tho Episcopal church, and gather your family, mil put 3 ei:r pi ayer-l eiejk 011 a chair, nnd knee! down leforoit, and iu tbo Kedeinn and hushed presence of Gexl gather up ollyemr sorrows, and temptations, and sius, and cry ut: "Good Lord, deliver us." 4. Again, I remark, if we want to be come Christians, hko Ruth in th'i text, wo must choose Christian associati 11s. Thy people shall bo my people, cried out Ruth to Naomi. "liio folks you associate with I want to ossoe iate. with. They will come anel see ine, null will go an I seethf-iu. I want to move i-t the highest of all circles the cir 1 lo of God's elect; and, there-fort, inolhe.:-, I am going 1 acit with you to tho lan l vZ Judah." ! you who are sen king after God -and I suppose thero are many suohinlh s pres ence do you who are wee-kin r.f'erGid piefer Christian Koeiety to worldly so ciety? "No," you say, "J profor tbe world's mirth anel tbe world's laughter and ths world's innuendo and tho world's paraph ernalia." AA'ell, thbs is a free country arid you shall have tbe right of choice, but lot ma tell you that tho purest mirth, and the ma.it un trammeled gleet, and tho greatest resil ience of soul are inside tho Christian com panionship, an 1 not outsldo of it. I have tried both styles of companionship tho companionship of tho world and tha com panionship of Christ, and I know by ex perience. I havo Lcea now so long in tho sunshiny experience nnd society of Christian people that when I am com pelled to to go for a little while ami 1 in tense worldly society I feel eloprossod. It; is like going out of a June gartl-n into an ice-house. Men never know fully how fa laugh until they become Christians, Tho world's laughtor has a jerki of dissatisfac tion at the end, but when a man is conse crated to Goel, nnd ho is all right, for tho world to come, then when bo laughs, body, mind and soul crackle. Let a jrroup of ministers of tho Gospel, gathered from nil denominations of Christians, be together in a diiiing-liall, or in a soci.d circle, an. I you know they are proverl ially jocund. 0 yo unconverted people! I know 11 .fc how you can stand it elown iu that moping, bilous, saturnine, worldly asso ciation. Come up into tho sunlight of Christ ian society thosrj people for whom all things aro w 01 kin g right now, ntul will work right forevoe. I tell you that the sweotest japonicos grow in the Lord's garden; that the largest grapes aro f r m the vineyards of Canaan; that tho most; sparkling floods break forth from tho Rock of Ages. Bo not too much pity this Ruth of my text; for she is going ti bo conld j ofnfc owner of tho great ha, vo,t fields of Boaz. .r. Onco more: If wo want t 1 e ome Christians, we must, liko PuiJh in the text, choose tho Christian's eloath tin I burial. She exebe imed : AVhero thou eliest, will I die, and there will 1 be buried. 1 think we all, when leaving this world, would like to bo surrounded by Christian influences. Yi ti would not liko to havo your el ing pillow sur rounded bv carica turists, nud punsters, and wine-bibbers. How would you like to havo John Loecti coma with his London pictorials, and Christopher North with his loose fun, and Tom Hoeiel with his rhyming jokes, when ycu are dying? No! no! 110? Let mo have a Christian nurse in my las' sichness. Let me have ri Christian physician toad minister the medicines. Let i1 bo a Chris tian wife, or parent, or child, that w atches the going out of tho til; of my 111 rial exLteoco. Le' Christian men c .ue ia Hm room and read ef the illuminated vnlPy, and tho extinguishment of grief, and drown the hoarse blasts of death w ila tho strains of "Mount Fisgah" and "Suiut Martin." In our last, moment wo w iil all bo e-,iil ilren. Vail Dr. Guthrie, tin famous (scotch clergyman, when dying: "Sing me a b irn's hymn." Yes, we will all be children then. In that hour tho world will stand c gifoiin lel around us. Our friends mav cry over us; fears will not help us. They may look sail; what wo want, is radi it on in the lest moment, thinkin it, will help them to lie. In our last moments we want that 1 re-.d which came down fr mi heaven. V Ii will givo it to us? Oh, wo want Ciiristien peo ple in tho room, so that if our hope begin to struggle they may say: "Ccurago, brother! All is well! Cour age!" In that expiring moment I w.- nt to he-,r tho e.ld a dig 3 fhatw used to S'Hg in church and prayer-meeting, hi that 1 ist moment I w a nt to liear th ! voio i of some Christian friend pleading that tie sins and sheirtco idn ;s of my life may ho for given and tho doors of Ite.ivcn may bo opened boforo my entrant o 1 spirt .
