AllD FIRE Melvin Graham Badly Burned. On Friday, about noon, the resi dents in the vicinity of Verret and Eliza Streets were startled by the ter rific explosion which took place at 517 Verret Street, in the little double cottage owned by Mr. Peter Rupp. Immediately following the explosion the building burst in flames and it was very evident that the damage was caused by leaking gas, which had be come ignited in some way. Imme diately following the explosion there was great excitement due to the screaming of some women in the neighborhood and the fact that young Melvin Graham, aged about sixteen years, was seen coming from the house, his shirt practically torn from his body and his arms and face very badly burned. The boy was imme diately taken into Rupp's Drug Store, where Mr. Peter Rupp disregarded the destruction of his residence while he was caring for the young Graham boy. Mrs. M. J. Manent and Mrs. J. D. Reynolds, w'ho were also in the' neighborhood at the time, gave valu able assistance to Mr. Rupp in dress ing the young boy preparatory to sending him to the hospital. Dr. J. E. Polleck was called and administered an opiate to give the young man re lief while he was being taken to the institution. One side of the house, which was occupied by M.rs. A. Graham, was practically destroyed by the fire, while the other side is badly dam aged from the' explosion and water. The other side of the house was oc cupied by Mr. and Mrs. James For syth. The building was valued at about $800 or $900, with insurance of about $500. THE* CHEERFUL CHERUB osqvitoes buzz outside my screen; They want to get to me I know.
