A certain candidate for a city v-dice,
so the story goes, made it a rule that
callers should be admitted to see him
at any moment, even if he were at ta
ble, says the Youth's Companion. This
rule, it is needless to say, applied only
before election. When he was seated
one day at a meal of canvasback duck
and champagne, and his maid-servant
announced that a deputation of men
from the ward was waiting in the hall
to see him, he did not order these ar
ticles removed nntil he had found out
who the men were. "They looks like
workin'men, sir," said the maid. "Then
quick, Bridget! Take off the duck and
the wine and bring ice some cold
chicken and a cup of coffee." The
errant did as she was bid. She had
gone out of the room after executing
the order, and the politician was de
voting himself in a somewhat gingerly
way to the cold chicken, when the girl
came rushing in again. "I've just
found out, sir," she said, "that they

THREE MEN KILLED.
A Frightful Explosion of Nltro-filyeerlne
at the Repanno Cbemirsl Work The
Building Rose Bodily in the Air, a Great
Hole In the Ground Marking the Spot
W here It Had Stood Another Explosion.
Woodbury, X. J., March 27. An es
plosion occurred yesterday at the Re-
pauno chemical works at Gibstown.
Three men were killed and others in
jured. THE DEAD.
The Eepauno works are operated by
the Duponts (of powder making fame).
and are used for the manufacture of
nitro-glycerine and gun cotton. The
buildings are one-story frame struc
tures, separated some distance from
each other. The works have been very
busy of late, and the force of employes
was larger than usual.
The explosion yesterday occurred in
the separating house, where the nitro
glycerine goes through one of the most
indicate and dangerous processes. The
three men who were blown to atoms
were the only occupants of the build
ing and the cause of the explosion can
not be learned. It was 12:20 o'clock
when the explosion occurred and it
made a tremendous noise.
At Paulsboro the shosk was so great
that the residents ran from their
houses in alarm. Some of the work
men who were passing through the
yard of the- nitroglycerine works say
they saw the separating house rise
bodily in the air and then they were
thrown to the ground by the awful
blest. Workmen in the other build
ings of the plant ran out and fled for
their lives, fearing additional explo
sions. After a lapse of a few minutes,
however, when the danger had passed
they returned and began to search foi
their unfortunate fellow-workmen.
Where the separating house had stood
there was a great hole in the ground.
and the trees for 300 yards around were
denuded of their limbs and twisted by
the force of the explosion. The bodies
of the victims had been blown intc
fragments which were found scattered
for a considerable distance around.
