Fontanet, Ind., Oct. 16.—When the residents of this village of 1,000 people awoke this morning they en countered a much different situation than they had been accustomed to in the past. Instead of a quiet country town and pleasant scenery to greet their eyes, desolation was at hand. Soldiers of the Indiana State Mi litia had been on guard all night. Details as to what caused the ter rible catastrophe of yesterday, when the Dupont powder mills 'blew up, killing probably 35 and injuring 600 persons, were lacking. No one con nected with the powder company could ascribe any reason for the ex plosion. Several rumors were cur rent, one of the most probable cir culated being that the machinery in the glazing mill became overheated from friction and set Are to some loose powder in the glazing milj, which was the first to blow up, the other sections of the plant follow ing in rapid succession.

Hilton, began his work in Wenat chee on St. Luke's day, Oct. 18, 1903, by invitation of tbe Rt. Rev. Lemuel H. Wellb, D.D., Bishop of Spokane. When he arrived from the east be. found that there were but few communicants of the Epis copal church in the town and very j little money in hand to begin the erection of a church building. ft was determined to build a Brame structure, which could be used for J church and social purposes, on the .east end of the lot, reserving, the corner for a stone church when the conditions would warrant it; thfl3 building was under roof and in use for divine service within six weeks and was finally completed and paid for by April, 1904. Work was be gun in the following month on the J Rectory and a handsome house of eight rooms was built fr the use of the Rector and his family. This house 13 almost free from debt, and it is expected that it will be entire ly so in a short time. Part of tre foundation for the new church has been laid, so that the grounds may be properly graded whan Chelan avenue and First street are improv ed.
