SKID MORE BADLY DAMAGED. Caretaker Has Miraculous Escape From Death. Early Thursday morning last week a violent explosion took place on board the yacht "Aria" 'belonging to Professor Sydney T. E. Skidmore of Philadelphia, Pa., which was lying at anchor in Mackerel Cove at Bailey Island. The accident was caused by a leak in the pipe leading from the tank to the engine. The gasoline had filled the bottom of the cabin and filled ii with its vapors. When the caretakcr of the yacht, Charles Herring, struck a match to light the stove in the galley to cook breakfast for himself, an explosion was the im mediate result. The cabin was en veloped with flames in an instant and Herring had a miraculous escape from death, plunging through the midst of the fire in order to reach the outside air. The explosion was so violent that the hatch was blown as high as the top of the mast and the deck was raised, while big gaps were started all over the hull. John Johnson and Victor Leeman, who were close by came to the res cue of the burning yacht, in spite of the danger from further explosions rrom the gasoline in the tanks, and managed to put out the flames with the aid of fire extinguishers. They then beached the boat which was rapidly sinking and which is dam to such an extent that it is problem atical whether it can be repaired or not. Herring's escape is considered little short of marvelous as he got off with only a few bruises on his face and arms, which, while painful, are not at all dangerous. His injuries were dressed immediately after the accident by Dr. J. L. Seward and he is reported to be doing very well. Peaks Island House LATEST NEWS AT THIS SPLEN DID HOTEL.
