natural gas explosion in this city in
two years occurred in the Hotel Albe

changing pipes. There were three
terrihe explosions simultaneously in
the cellars of D. T. Reed, the Hotel
Albemarle and the Bijou theater block,

under control. An investigation
shows that fifteen persons in all were
injured, five of them, it is believed,

James E. Hamilton, mail carrier bo-

on the south Atlantic coast, was de

boro inlet. . Hamilton's route was
seventy five miles long, and he usually
walked most of tho distance on the
beach. These inlets are dangerous,
because of cross currents aud large
and vicious sharks that abound there.
While crossing the inlet these sea
wolves attacked him, tore the oars out
of his hands, bit huge pieces out of the
boat's gunwale, and finally he was
thrown into their midst. A horror
stricken eye-witness at a dietanee told
the story. The searching party found
nothing but fragments of the boat. No

was sucn a nornnie one.
