Sunday morning about 6:30 o'clock fire was made in the stove at the res? idence of Mr. .W. J. Rogers, No. 710 Washington street, and the cook was preparing, to cook breakfast. The wa? ter pipes had all been thawed out and the water seemed to be running free? ly. About 7 o'clock ^Irs. Rogers went in the kitchen to look after some mat? ters. There was no one in there at the time but herself. Just as she ad? vanced to the stove the entire stove collapsed, flying in every direction. A portion passed out through two windows, carrying sash, glass, etc., with it. A flying stove cover struck Mrs. Rogers In the stomach, knocking her about 12 feet, striking her head against a partition, knocking her senseless. During this time the kitch? en caught on fire in three places. In Ihe meantime the kitchen was filled with smoke and steam. Her daughter. May, was in the sitting room and heard the explosion and ran there nnd found her mother down on the floor nearly smothered with smoke and steam. She ran to 'he front door and screamed for help. Mr. Gerke, a next door neighbor, ran in. He was follow? ed by some colored men who were ap? pealed to. They came In and in a short while succeeded In putting the fire out. In the meantime Mrs. Rog? ers was removed to another portion of the house. Dr. F. S. Hope was sum? moned end found that she was badly, bruised abntrt the stomach, head and arms, but no bones were broken. Her Injuries, while painful, arc not serious. The damage to the kitchen will amount to about $10. The stove could not have been worse mutilated If a Derson had taken a maul and mashed It up. Some pieces of the stove were thrown forty feet a way; others were buried In the sldo of the house. A lock on a door twenty feet away wns split open. The noise was heard back on Green street. Several persons, who heard it and saw ?he smoke, ran nround to assist in put ling the Are out. Some of the neigh? bors" claim that it shook the crockery in their houses. They thought It was nn earthquake. A quantity of crock? ery was knocked down In Mrs. Rog r's house and was broken. The loss l.n all will amount to about $175. The escape of Mrs. Rogers from death was almost a miracle. A WONDERFUL POOL PLAYER. Fred. B. Hvall and B. C. Dozier to Play a, Match Game. Tlie billiard parlor of Brown's Hotel was crowded with gentlemen last night, all. eager to witness the playing of Mr. Fred. B. Hall, the wonderful pool ex? pert.

He is said to be the champion exhi? bition pool player of the world, and his performance last n ght at Brown's wai of the very highest order, he making th--> most difficult and Intricate shots with ease and grace, which added brill? iancy to his excellent playing. He un? doubtedly deserves the title which has been conferred upon him through his mastery of the cue and ivories. Mr. Hall's advent In this city has brought about a very Interesting pool match. This gentleman and the cele? brated pool player of Norfolk, Mr. B. C. Dozier, have been matched to play a match game of pool for a purse of $200 a side, 150 points. Mr. Charles H. Brown is managing the match, and through his efforts Ar? mory Hall has been secured, and w'll b> comfortably arranged for the match, which will take place Thursday night of this week at S o'clock.
